'Raising More Money' materials are available
More than 60 people from various organizations attended last week's Raising More Money workshop, sponsored by the Non-Profit Excellence Project, to learn how to create a pool of lifelong donors. To support workshop attendees and those interested in the concepts behind this fund-raising strategy, the Bud Werner Memorial Library has purchased the books "Raising More Money: A Step-by Step Guide to Building Lifelong Donors" and "The Point of Entry Handbook," as well as the videos "Re-igniting Your Board" and "Raising More Money: Building Lifelong Donors." All materials are available for checkout with a library card.

Search and Rescue looks for disoriented hike
Two dog teams were among the search crews dispatched to find a lost hiker Thursday evening.
The hiker, a woman staying at the Home Ranch near Clark, went hiking in the nearby Routt National Forest and got disoriented, Routt County Search and Rescue President Tim O'Brien said.
The woman had a cellular phone and was able to call for help.
Crews were expected to find her Thursday evening, although she is apparently in good health and was equipped to spend the night out, if necessary, O'Brien said.
