Desa Loughman, front left, and employees of her business, Colorado Alternative Health Care, Palisade’s medical marijuana dispensary, debate plans for the business to grow marijuana in Palisade. The Loughmans have secured some initial approvals from Palisade trustees for an outdoor growing operation, but a few peach growers are protesting it.


A small gathering that included a few peach farmers posted at Palisade’s Peach Bowl park on Sunday to protest the town’s approval of an outdoor marijuana growing operation.
Carol Zadrozny, owner of Z’s Orchard, said the decisions by Palisade’s planning commission and town trustees were made in haste, especially considering a decision that could sway the area’s focus away from its peach-growing history.

Investigators with the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office reported Sunday finding the remains of missing Grand Junction woman, 18-year-old Kelly Mae Myers, in the Cactus Park area. The remote area is located south of the Gunnison River and southeast of Colorado Highway 141.
