Briefs for Oct. 12

The Boys & Girls Club of Craig received a $5,000 grant, one of 175 being presented by the JCPenney After School Fund to local Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Clubs will use grant money by implementing Power Hour during the 2005-06 school year. Power Hour serves as a homework assistance program for youngsters, ages 6 to 18 and is designed to motivate and improve their homework skills.

Through Power Hour, homework helpers, adults and qualified students will be available to work with kids at The Boys & Girls Club of Craig during after-school hours. These helpers will encourage kids to set and accomplish goals, as well as communicate often with parents/guardians about their progress. Incentives and Power Points will be awarded for completion and high quality of homework.

Time is running out for bull elk hunters

The final hour is approaching for elk hunters in Colorado to make plans to hunt during the 2005 season.

There will be no over-the-counter bull elk tags on sale this year for the first or fourth rifle seasons. Any elk hunters who want to purchase an over-the-counter bull elk tags will have to do so for the second or third seasons.

The first rifle elk season is Oct. 15 to 19. The second season runs Oct. 22 to 30. The third season is Nov. 5 to 11. The fourth rifle season runs Nov. 16 to 20.

In previous years, people could hunt with over-the-counter tags in the fourth season, but this year marks a change that eliminated fourth season over-the-counter bull elk tags.

Over-the-counter bull elk licenses are the most flexible because they are valid in multiple areas of the state. There are still some leftover “limited elk” licenses for the fourth season, but they are very specific as to which units they are valid.

The cost of an elk hunting license is $30.25 for Colorado residents. Nonresident fees are $485.25 for a bull elk license or $250.25 for a cow elk license.
