I was recently invited to make a PowerPoint presentation to the Rose Garden Club in Cedaredge, and the hostess was interested in swans. In preparing the show I found very interesting things about swans, and so I decided to write a column about them.

During his monthly department report to town trustees on Oct. 16, Police Chief Dan Sanders noted the work officers have been doing on four important and complicated cases.
“We plan to bring these very involved criminal cases to prosecution and/or grand jury in upcoming months,” Sanders’ report noted.

It was a blustery, snowy day Sunday, Oct. 12, to dedicate the new County Line Trailhead on the Grand Mesa. Given that this is a nordic ski and winter activities area, the weather rose to the occasion in preparation for the upcoming ski season!

Hudson was featured in a Sept. 24 article introducing the town’s new animal control officer. Hudson’s curricullum vitae in the story seems to have struck a sympathetic chord with a DCI reader and Hudson had his new home two days later.
Hudson is a munchkin: a cat with a breeding, or genetic, anomaly that produces very short legs.

Costs for both construction and operation of Cedaredge’s proposed new sewer treatment plant are on the rise according to a current engineers’ report.
Engineers and town officials are hoping they can put together a package of grants and low interest loans to fill the widening funding gap for construction.
