Parent accountability meeting on Monday

The Moffat County High School Parent Accountability Committee, or PAC, plans to meet from 6 to 7 p.m. on Monday in the high school library.

PAC meetings are meant to generate new ideas, materials, concepts and concerns for the principal, from the community, according to a news release. New ideas for revising high school policies get reviewed, and the committee makes recommendations to the principal.

Meetings kick off with a time for parents to bring their personal concerns and recommendations to the group, known as "Let's Listen." The group devotes whatever time is needed to these concerns.

Temporary hunter

education cards offered

The Colorado Division of Wildlife is sponsoring two "crash courses" for temporary Colorado Hunter Education Cards, primarily intended for out-of-state hunters.

The courses are eight hours long and will be held from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 19 and Nov. 2 at the Maybell Community Center in Maybell. The classes are held the day before the second and third hunting season open.

The cards will be valid until Dec. 31, 2007.

Colorado requires that all hunters born after Jan. 1, 1949, have a valid education card before applying for or purchasing a license. Colorado honors hunter education courses from other states and provinces.

Anyone who has taken the Internet Home Study education course can complete his or her requirements by attending the first four hours of the crash course and presenting the instructor with the 41 pop quizzes and 14 final quizzes printed from the Internet.

After passing a written exam and a live fire exercise, those who have completed the Internet course will receive a permanent Colorado education card.

For more information or to pre-register for classes, call Ron and Lois Stoffle at 970-272-3238.

- For brief notices, call Jerry Raehal at 824-7031.
