The first quarter of the year has seen numerous organizations ask for letters of support from the Paonia Town Council. The non-profits are submitting applications for grants to support projects for this year.

The Garfield County Commissioners met on April 6 to hear a request from SG Interests for a letter of support for its proposed gas lease exchange. That exchange would take about 30,000 acres of suspended oil and gas leases in the Thompson Divide for unleased BLM minerals in Delta, Mesa, Gunnison and Rio Blanco counties.

The Town of Paonia is taking a closer look at people using parks as locations for commercial use. The use of Apple Valley Park regularly for a Boot Camp was the focus of the discussion.

There was a festive grand opening and ribbon cutting in downtown Hotchkiss Saturday morning. Commander Windshield Repair and Replacement opened April 11.

Deb Kraai, manager of the Hotchkiss City Market, is retiring after 35 years with the store. There will be a celebration for her on Friday, April 24, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Hotchkiss Senior Center, 276 W. Main Street.
