Craig briefs: Free park entrance to active-duty military, veterans

DENVER — Colorado Parks and Wildlife is offering free park entrance to active-duty military and veterans during the month of August as a result of House Bill 15-1045, signed into law May 27.

"We invite Colorado's military community to enjoy all of the beauty and recreational opportunities Colorado state parks have to offer," CPW Parks and Recreation assistant director, Margaret Taylor said in a statment.

CPW encourages eligible individuals to get their pass in advance at any CPW office or state park to avoid delays at the gate on a planned recreation day.

Pest management in progress across county

Moffat County will conduct mosquito larva control daily through October.

Due to the unusually high amount of rain this year, standing water is everywhere. This additional mosquito habitat makes it impractical to aerial spray before the end of June.

Aerial spraying for broad area adult mosquitoes took place June 30 through July 3 in the city of Craig and surrounding county areas.

Spraying times will be on a weather-permitting basis, early morning or early evening.

County crews treat the golf course from 9 p.m. to midnight Monday through Friday. Loudy-Simpson Park is treated at the conclusion of each treatment schedule. Adult and larva work is conducted at Shadow Mountain and Maybell on an as-needed basis.

While the department tries to treat Loudy-Simpson Park and the golf course during times when people aren't present, if you do notice the department spraying in the area, avoid coming into contact with the spray.

Special events and circumstances occasionally alter schedules.
