This week’s column congratulates the 4-H members who exhibited in the General Projects Division at the 2015 Colorado State Fair in August. In order to exhibit at the state level, 4-H members qualified during competition at 4-H Completion Day at the beginning of the Moffat County Fair.
Greater sage grouse do not currently need protection under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). This week’s announcement has me wanting to burst with joy. It’s as exciting as a Broncos’ touchdown.
