Wearing pink fire hats, Mya Antonucci, 6, and her brother Ryan, 9, of Grand Junction polish off plates of pancakes in the truck bay of Station 3, 582 25 1/2 Road, as others line up to tour the Delaney Donates pink firetruck during this morning’s pancake breakfast sponsored by the Grand Junction Fire Department and the Mesa County Fire Chiefs.

The objective of the breakfast is to raise money for professional development and for a regional training center. The fundraiser continues until noon today.

Jobless rate at its lowest since late ’08

The employment trend both locally and statewide seems to be headed in the right direction, as the Grand Junction-area unemployment rate dropped to a level in August not seen since December 2008. The area jobless rate fell to a non-seasonally adjusted 5.5 percent last month, according to the most recent data. That’s a drop from 6.3 for the region in July 2014.
