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 …

Letter: Mileage article raises many questions

Local News - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 1:17pm
Questions. Boy, does your article on the citizen group’s investigation of Commissioner Newberry raise a lot of them. First, who is this group? Wasn’t the spokesman, Chas McConnell, the candidate against James Newberry in the last county commissioners’ election? We can presume all citizens who have nothing to hide are for transparency in government, or has this become some kind of personal vendetta? 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 …

Run-off boosts Grand County rafting businesses

Local News - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 12:29pm
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. Mike Wasson, co-owner of Red Tail Rafting in Fraser, said his company has had an excellent year so far. “The water level is much better,” said Wasson. “The flow is much better than it has been in the last couple of years due to the good winter snowfall we’ve had. So for rafting, it’s excellent.” Red …

Letter: Grand County Commissioner James Newberry responds to mileage allegations

Local News - Thu, 07/17/2014 - 11:33am
To the citizens of Grand County: Recently, I have been accused of theft and my ethics have been questioned. The accusers point to mileage reimbursements and being paid a stipend. I have consulted the legal staffs of both the River District and Grand County about how I handled these reimbursements. They said what I already knew: The questioned stipends and reimbursements did not violate the authority or policies of those entities. I have always reported and accounted to the IRS for any money received. As a matter of fact, I have made it a practice to not seek all reimbursements …
