In the afterglow of Sochi, Pres. Vladimir Putin’s drive to get respect from the world shifted into reverse as he invaded Ukraine’s attempt to leave his self defined orbit. Putin answered Western allies’ and President Obama’s offering of a velvet hand with a spiked club, invading the Crimea. The U.S. may not consider this reviving the Cold War, but I could not personally suppress some familiar emotions. I remember vividly tanks rolling into Hungary in 1956 to crush a revolt. Dwight Eisenhower was president then and the U.S. did not answer with force. They recognized the U.S.S.R. Œs sphere; the …

It was a painful sight. Who could misuse God’s creatures like this? These poor animals had been abused and neglected yet they perked up every time someone walked by. It was obvious they wanted to be loved and needed little more than a clean home, fresh water, a warm bed and maybe a little pat on the head now and then. Their coats were stained and greasy, their fur matted and their sad, red-rimmed weepy eyes looked like they’d seen nothing but hard times and bad treatment. I spoke to George Geoffrey, founder of Heavenly Hope Husband Rescue standing in …

The person responsible for the Grand County Building Department’s missing $500,000 has yet to be formally named and charged. County officials have a good idea of the desk from which the suspicious activity originated, but invoked rural community familiarity and “trust” as their reason for taking 12 years to notice. Still, according to some county officials, red flags began popping up from the building department years prior. Treasurer Christina Whitmer told the Sky-Hi News she’s heard a profusion of citizens’ concern over her role in preventing the building department scandal, which only came to light last October. However, Whitmer clarified …
FRASER—While the Fraser Board of Trustees shelved an ordinance and a resolution concerning out-of-town water service, board members also sparred with a community member regarding an agreement to provide water and wastewater service to Byers Peak Ranch. No agreement has been approved by either the town board or the developer of Byers Peak Ranch, though a representative of the developer, Jack Bestall, commented that they were willing to continue discussions with the town to work toward using the town’s water and wastewater system for the proposed development despite not yet coming to terms on an agreement.

Rising health care costs and inefficient systems have pushed the hospital district down a rocky road of sliding cash flows and debt payments potholes. The hospital district board, which oversees both the hospital in Kremmling and Middle Park Medical Center in Granby, is considering a major overhaul in management to help smooth things over. Much of its financial trouble came to light soon after the Middle Park Medical Center opened in Granby in January 2012. …
Even as temperatures climb with spring on the horizon, snowpack in Middle Park remains in good shape. According to the most recent USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Kremmling Field Office snow surveys, snowpack in the high elevation mountains above Middle Park now ranges from 115 percent to 194 percent of the 30-year average, with the overall average for Middle Park at 141 percent.

Snow density is averaging 28 percent, which means that …
