Expansive adobe soils are a bane for builders because of the soils’ soft and shifting nature.
Adobe clay soils are being blamed for problems the Town of Orchard City has had with its Centennial Honor Wall. The shifting and water-swollen soils that underlie the structure are causing structural cracking.

There were over 50 vendors of all kinds — crafters, woodworkers, jewelers, merchants, confectioners, artists, non-profits, fundraisers and others to take part in the second annual Celebrate Cedaredge street fair. On Saturday they accepted the chance to get the word out about their enterprises, and they set up booths in free space in Cedaredge’s downtown.
Restaurants and other businesses on Main Street were open and busy during the now annual event, and visitors who browsed the many booth displays also got to sample local vintages provided by Williams Cellars and Stoney Mesa Winery.
In addition to the activities downtown, there were two family-friendly organized events that took place at Town Park.
