Board reschedules bond meeting

The Moffat County School District Board of Education will not have its scheduled special meeting Thursday night to approve a construction plan for the new middle school.

Neenan Archistructure, the engineering firm hired to plan and build the school project, told the school district it could not have the plans or financial figures ready until Aug. 14. The School Board has scheduled a meeting at 6:30 that night.

The School Board proposed a new plan to Neenan after its initial presentation July 26 to build the new middle school on the site of the old middle school. The hope is that this plan will save about $3 million and allow the middle school to keep its existing auditorium and gym.

The School Board plans to approve one plan or the other at the Aug. 14 meeting.

The meeting is to be open to the public, and the audience is scheduled to be allowed to speak.

Missing woman found

Craig Police Department officers were notified at 6:05 p.m. Friday of a missing 21-year-old woman by the woman’s parents.

The missing female had existing medical conditions, and it was feared she could be in danger if not found immediately.

Seven local and state agencies were mobilized to conduct a search, including the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office and Craig Fire/Rescue.

Radio station KRAI interrupted its programming to post an alert, and officers used the reverse 911 system to call residents to be on the lookout.

These alerts led to sighting reports from residents, and the missing woman was found at 9:05 p.m. close to the Wendy’s restaurant on Victory Way.

The woman had no memory of where she had been because of her medical condition, but did not appear to be harmed in any way, according to Police Chief Walt Vanatta. She was then returned to her parents.

Raising someone else’s kids?

A support group for grandparents or relatives raising kin in Moffat or Routt counties will be held from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Aug. 15 at the Craig Visiting Nurse Association, 745 Russell St. For more information, call Katie at 871-7628.
