A fairly quiet day of events in town. Highlights included a drunken woman was staggering all over the road. I wonder if this is the same woman from previous day who reported her husband missing? She staggered her way to the point the police could not locate her, wow! That is one drunk woman for sure. The crime wave continues as a car door was spray-painted, again this needs to cease, as it brings a bad name to our community. Also, a fight apparently erupted between a man and boy, what a mismatch and the man should not fight or pick on someone so young, eh? Also, an intoxicated man was reported 'suspicious' loitering near a fire pit. If it were me and I saw anyone near a firepit regardless of their intoxication, yea I would think that was suspicious. Don't people have too much time to be throwing trash out the window and running over signs on the road. This is upsetting the peaceful residents continously, and hopefully plate numbers are written down whenever this happens and seen by the public. The rising crime wave in town, and the rising gas prices this summer will be issues to watch out for, and their effects on our slumping economy.

I love myselves. All of them.

On Thurs. we passed the 2:59 car wrecks on 131. I say wrecks because they were at least a quater of a mile apart. We saw the white suv on the back of the tow truck. I am suprised the Colorado Highway patrol car involved in the second wreck did not have to be towed also. It seemed to be the worse of the two wrecks. Very surprised our paper did not report that the Highway Patrol had been in a wreck on Thursday. Since they didn't I will report that their was a Colorado highway patrol officer investigating the white suv wreck and that the Routt County Sherriff department was on the scene at the CHP wreck.

yes i talked to someone who witnessed this CHP was defenitely driving to fast..wonder if they issued themseves a ticket..ya right,,improper mountian driving or excessive speed for conditions..they do a good job but are they held to the same standards

There are several things wrong with this report. But the second car involved was rubber necking the CHP wreck and went off the opposite side. Dispatch had just said the road conditions were bad due to hail when a few minutes later CHP decided to check out the ditch. They were keeping Renegade busy.
