Pro Bono legal clinic set for Tuesday
The Pro Bono Project of Mesa County and Colorado Legal Services Title III Senior Citizen Legal Assistance Program will offer a free clinic from 9:30–11:30 a.m. Tuesday on the interplay between various ways assets pass at death and how that can affect your planning.
“How Property Passes at Death,” will be presented by local attorney Charles Reams in the Grand Junction City Hall auditorium, 250 N. Fifth St. The clinic will address the differences between probate and non-probate transfers, appointment of fiduciaries and who should write a will.
Call the Pro Bono Project at 424-5748 to register.

Frontier Days not concerned about pot
CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Organizers of Cheyenne Frontier Days and local police don’t see a cause for specific concern about wider use of marijuana bought legally next door in Colorado.
CFD Security Committee chairman Hoy Myers said he isn’t planning any particular precautions to screen for marijuana use during the rodeo, which begins this weekend.
“We know there’s going to be a few folks in Colorado who’ll come up here and continue on with the process, but we’ll just turn them over to Cheyenne PD if we do find them,” Myers said.
