Fifty western Colorado residents from 22 countries spanning the globe became U.S. citizens Tuesday morning by reciting the U.S. Oath of Allegiance in front of family members and supporters at the Saddlehorn Picnic Area atop Colorado National Monument.
Independence Monument served as the backdrop to the naturalization ceremony, one of more than 160 such ceremonies taking place nationwide Sept. 16-23 in conjunction with Citizenship Day and Constitution Day, both of which are today. The outdoor setting was a unique treat for the new citizens, who would otherwise take the oath in a courtroom. Grand Junction courtrooms typically host one naturalization ceremony each month for up to 25 people who live between the Utah border and Glenwood Springs within the southern and northern borders of Colorado.
A 13-year-old Grand Junction boy was arrested Monday after he allegedly stole his parents’ vehicle, rammed three police patrol cars and ran over an officer’s leg, sending the officer to the hospital, police said. Cale Schaefer was screened into the Division of Youth Corrections and faces charges including second-degree assault on a peace officer, first-degree aggravated motor vehicle theft, vehicular assault and vehicular eluding. The names of juveniles typically are not released,
