Green-tailed Towhee
For years now I’ve always checked out the south window before I begin the morning’s chores. This morning, the old trumpet vine is just beginning to leaf out and the bare branches glisten with last night’s gentle rain.

c01 tuttleThere is a reception banquet being planned to honor Robert Tuttle of Eckert. He was inducted into the Colorado Agriculture Hall of Fame in February.
Tuttle spent many years as the vocational agriculture instructor in Delta, and then after 10 years in Cedaredge, formally retired from teaching. He also designed the agricultural facilities for Delta County schools, including facilities at Delta, Hotchkiss, Paonia and Cedaredge. He also taught at Fruita.

The Town of Cedaredge conducted its official bid opening for construction of the new sewer treatment plant on Friday, May 8. On Monday, the town released a summary of the bids, including quotes for removal of sludge from the old sewer lagoons.

c01 breweryWednesday, May 13, is designated the first day of business for the much-anticipated 4 B’s Brewery at 215 Main Street in Cedaredge.
The building housing the town’s new brew pub has been under extensive remodeling by local contractor Mark Anderson and the new business is finally ready to make its debut, said one of the excited owners of 4 B’s Brewery, Barb Breitnauer. She shares ownership with her husband, John, and their two grown children.
Beer will be brewed on site, and other Colorado craft beers will be offered on tap.

The Orchard City trustees during their monthly work session last week discussed a water policy recently adopted by the Orchard City Irrigation District, and a request for support for a broadband project.
The town board members were asked by Mayor Don Suppes to consider whether they want to officially oppose a new OCID policy.
