Briefs for Feb. 9
Brownie sundaes will be the featured dish at the Yampa Valley Pregnancy Center’s fourth annual Dessert Extravaganza on Friday evening at the Center of Craig.
“We just want to thank all the people that have helped us over the years.” Director Sandi Billig said. “This is not a fundraiser, it’s just a big thank-you.”
The public is welcome to attend the free event, which is expected to run from 7 p.m. to about 9 p.m.
Punch and coffee will be available, and entertainment will include an ensemble of six musicians from Moffat County High School.
“We always try to include high school students in our events,” said Billig. “If (the students) need us, we want them to know we are here.”
On Feb. 24, the pregnancy center will hold a fundraiser at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig billed as a Bunko Beach Party.
“That’s from 7 p.m. till 10 p.m., and I’m excited to see what Bunko is all about,” Billig said.

New lawyer for suspected counterfeiter
The lawyer for a Craig teenager who police say was involved in a rash of counterfeit $100 bills last year has withdrawn because of a conflict of interest.
Raymond Siqueiros, 19, of Craig, was scheduled for an arraignment on counterfeiting charges in 14th Judicial District Court on Wednesday.
But during the hearing, Siqueiros’ attorney, public defender Sheryl Uhlmann, told Siqueiros she was withdrawing as his attorney.
Chief Judge Michael O’Hara said he would appoint another attorney to Siqueiros’ case.
Siqueiros was one of three people arrested in December on counterfeiting charges.
Since his arrest, Siqueiros has been in Moffat County Jail. His bond is $80,000.
Siqueiros is charged with forgery and committing a fraudulent financial transaction.
