c01 labossiere2A Cedaredge youth who lost his life in an accident three years ago was remembered at an observance on Sunday.
John Paul LaBossiere Jr., known as “Junior,” was 13 years old at the time of his death.

Some 80 friends joined his family for a remembrance of his life, and to dedicate an addition to the Cedaredge Main Street Project in his memory.

There’s a big pile of wood in our yard — Rescue Tree Service was here yesterday and now our tall cottonwoods look as they should look: stately and healthy. And the bird activity has, of course, been altered by the changes in the trees.

The picture is not a pleasant one when tax dollars are being spent by two local governments on staff time and lawyers in an ongoing argument.
But taxpayers in Cedaredge and Surface Creek Valley have witnessed just that for the past two years.

When Cedaredge trustees next take up discussion of the proposed ordinance on indoor marijuana growing, there will be a new bullet point added to the list of don’ts: grow light systems which produce radio frequency interference.
During trustees’ first look at the draft ordinance on Oct. 16, Steve Grewe, an amateur radio enthusiast, talked about problems being caused by grow lights used to produce marijuana indoors.

Orchard City trustees considered, at their Oct. 8  work session, calling a meeting of neighbors sometime in November to discuss the county’s North Road/Highway 65 intersection haul route for the North Road gravel pit.
According to discussion at the work session,  the county believes that improvements required for use of the Myers Road alternate route proposal might not be worth the cost for the small number of trucks using it intermittently.
