Fundraiser for MDA
The Grand Junction Fire Department and the International Association of Firefighters will collect money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association at five locations around the city starting Friday and continuing through Sunday.
Last year, the Fire Department raised $11,000 for MDA, all of which was donated to help people with neuromuscular diseases, firefighter Derek Trombetta said in a news release.
Firefighters will be collecting money at three City Market locations: 200 Rood Ave., 2770 U.S. Highway 50 and 630 24 Road, Albertsons at 2512 Broadway and Walmart at 2881 North Ave.
DUI checkpoints planned
The Colorado State Patrol announced plans to conduct DUI checkpoints at a variety of locations in Garfield and Eagle counties — but not in Mesa County — during the Labor Day weekend.
The locations of checkpoints and increased patrols will move throughout both counties with a checkpoint scheduled on Friday in Eagle County and another on Saturday in Garfield County, the State Patrol said.
No plans to conduct checkpoints in Mesa County were announced. State Patrol spokespeople were unavailable for comment Wednesday night.
