Sale of Serendipity Coffee brewing

The owner of Serendipity Coffee Shop is expected today to enter a contract to sell the popular downtown eatery.

But J’Lea Driver, owner of the business and its building, 576 Yampa Ave., declined to divulge the potential buyer.

Although the business and building are included in the pending sale, Serendipity would not change, she said.

Should the sale become final, a smooth transition would follow, Driver said.

“They’re wanting to keep it just the same,” she said.

The sale of Serendipity, which Driver opened five years ago, should be complete in April.

Noise dispute leads to assault, arrest

A Craig man was arrested Wednesday on charges of breaking down his neighbor’s door and assaulting him.

Earl Kent, 32, was involved in a dispute Tuesday with a neighbor at Simmons Rooms on Yampa Avenue, said Lt. John Forgay, a Craig Police Department spokesman.

The original dispute had to do with noise, Forgay said.

Kent broke down the 39-year-old neighbor’s door Wednesday and assaulted him, Forgay said.

The neighbor fled to Memorial Hospital, near Simmons Rooms, and called police, Forgay said.

Kent came to the Moffat County Public Safety Center to give his side of the story and was arrested, Forgay said.

Kent is being charged with criminal mischief, third-degree assault and first-degree burglary, Forgay said.

Ballot counting location moved

Citizens can watch election workers count ballots at next week’s election.

Instead of counting ballots in the back of the Clerk and Recorder’s Office, election officials will count Tuesday’s ballots in the front of the Moffat County Commissioners’ chambers behind a glass door.

Chief Deputy Clerk and Recorder Lila Herod said if people want to watch judges count ballots through the door Tuesday night, they are welcome to.

First Congregational Church plans party

First Congregational Church’s Fall Festival Costume Party is open to people of all ages.

The event is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the church, 630 Green St.

This is the first time the event has been open to the public. “This is open to anyone that wants to come,” event organizer Jan Rinker said.

The event includes holiday games, crafts and snacks and a haunted room, Rinker said. It also includes a treasure hunt. Guests may participate in a costume parade and will be offered “goody bags.” Rinker said she would attend the event as a nurse in green scrubs.

“I think some of us older people like Halloween,” she said.

The event is free and is not based on religion, she said.

“We just want everyone to come and have fun,” Rinker said.

For more information, call the church at 824-6836.
