Tickets, which are $15 each or $180 a table, must be paid for in full at the time of the sale.

The play is famous for poking fun of everyone in town, and tickets always are in demand. Residents make it a party to stand in line all day for tickets.

Proceeds of the sale support the Kiwanis scholarship program.

Planning group to meet at City Hall

The Moffat County Planning and Zoning Commission has changed venues. The commission will meet at Craig City Hall, not the Moffat County Courthouse.

The commission meets at 6:30 p.m. the first Tuesday of every month to discuss zoning regulations and issue permits for special uses of property.

The new meeting place is more suitable for meetings, Moffat County Planner Ben Crippen said.

At the courthouse, members of the commission sat around a table with residents who attended the meetings. By meeting at City Hall, the commissioners are able to sit together and residents will sit in the audience.

The commission will meet for one hour before every meeting to discuss zoning regulations, and the meetings will begin at 6:30 p.m., Crippen said.

Licenses intended to improve safety

The Colorado Department of Public Health has begun licensing air ambulance services to operate in the state.

“Air ambulance licensing will help increase safety and accountability of those agencies that provide air ambulance transportation in our state,” said D. Randy Kuykendall, Emergency Medical and Trauma Services chief.
