Todd Markley, human resources director for Delta County Joint School District #50, is retiring at the end of the school year. Jim Farmer, longtime principal at Garnet Mesa Elementary School, will take his place, with additional duties in middle/high school curriculum and new teacher training.
On Monday, the school district named Joe Mock as Farmer's replacement. Mock will make the move from Lincoln Elementary School, where he has been assistant principal. The school district is also looking for a new principal at Delta Middle School.
On Dec. 2, officers of the Delta Police Department responded to a report of an assault. Officers spoke with a 64-year-old male with a bleeding injury on his neck.
