Xcel Energy has closed the Trout Lake Recreation Area because of work being done on the Trout Lake Dam, which is the primary storage reservoir for the Ames Hydroelectric Plant. The lake was lowered, creating hazards to the public, the company said. The recreation area, which is off Colorado Highway 145 south of Telluride, will be re-opened for the 2015 summer recreation season, Xcel said.

Son eyed in death is arrested

A man labeled a “person of interest” in the death of his mother was arrested Monday morning in Grand Junction on unrelated warrants. Daniel Stetzel, 31, was taken into custody by Grand Junction police after a 911 caller reported at 8:30 a.m. that a man was acting strangely near the Blue Heron boat ramp off Redlands Parkway, police spokeswoman Kate Porras said. Stetzel initially gave officers a fake name before providing his true identity, she said.
