Cedaredge Police Chief Dan Sanders reports that he spends a significant part of every work day dealing with marijuana issues.
That is in an environment where Cedaredge has outlawed all medical and recreational marijuana activity it is allowed to prohibit under the “local option” provisions of Amendments 20 and 64.

Snow course data at Park Reservoir last weekend showed 51 percent of the median amount of snow-water equivalent for the date. That is just one-third of the amount of snowpack water content that water managers  hope for on the Mesa at the  peak level in early May.
While the fairways and greens at Cedaredge Golf Course are still brown, and vinyl weather protectors remain covering the decorative tee box yardage signs, this year’s unseasonably warm weather has allowed some early play to take place. Golf enthusiasts have been getting in some early season rounds.

The amount of water that Orchard City is treating for its domestic customers during a recent month is down by about one-third from the monthly average treated over the last four years.
But at the same time, the town is selling the same number of gallons.
