The summer season in Grand Lake is in full swing, but Bob King, owner of Pancho & Lefty’s, feels like he is playing catch-up. Until a couple of weeks ago, he was severely understaffed. “It’s been extremely difficult. We’ve had to close a couple of days. We had to give people days off. We’re barely now just getting staffed. We should have been fully staffed a month ago,” he said. Pancho & Lefty’s staff is even more diverse than its menu, representing four countries on two different continents. “I think I have more foreigners working today than people from this …

If not, is Chas the best person to be the spokesman of an unbiased citizen’s group? Is there more they are investigating than just commissioner Newberry? Who funds the Colorado River District? Is Grand County part of …

As river flows begin to ebb around mid-summer, rafters are looking back and fondly recalling the early part of the season. This year’s heavy snowpack, which has seen reservoirs on both sides of the Continental Divide fill, has also created a memorable rafting season.

So for rafting, it’s excellent.” Red …
