Cars vandalized at local dealer

Vandals scratched the hoods of 16 cars at Craig Ford on Tuesday night, the dealership's owner said.

The scratches are so deep that it will cost between $600 and $800 to fix each of the hoods, Craig Ford owner Jerry Thompson said.

"I have no idea what's going through their heads," Thompson said of the vandals.

This isn't the first time cars at Craig Ford, 801 W. Victory Way, have been vandalized, Thompson said.

"It happens a couple of times a year, actually," he said.

Craig police spokesman Lt. John Forgay said police are investigating the incident, but there is little evidence to go on.

"It's just a senseless behavior," he said.

Forgay estimated the vandals caused about $9,600 in damage.

After a five-month search, Moffat County has a new 4-H agent, and the new agent is from Moffat County.

The Colorado State University Moffat County Extension Office has hired Alisa Comstock as the new agent of the agriculture-focused youth development program.

Elisa Shackelton, CSU Extension Office director, said Comstock's agricultural background, and the fact that she has worked as a substitute teacher and is experienced in working with children, made her a good candidate.

"She's a really neat person," Shackelton said.

Comstock's first day is June 1.
