City of Grand Junction crews brave the cold and try to clear snow from Main Street this morning, in preparation for the Parade of Lights Saturday evening. Parking is not allowed this year along the route, so vehicles need to be clear of Main Street beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Snow kept Colorado Division of Insurance Commissioner Marguerite Salazar from coming to Glenwood Springs this week to hear concerns about the high costs of individual health care in Garfield County next year. But that didn’t keep her from getting an earful anyway as she and other state officials took questions Wednesday night during a webinar focused on why Garfield rates will be much higher than other parts of the state as the federal Affordable Care Act is implemented.
