Balladeers of "happiness, light, and love," David and Tamara Hauze, traveled from their Crawford home on June 8 to give a benefit concert in Cedaredge Town Park for Delta County Search and Rescue.

Delta County sheriff Fred McKee, serving as emcee for the evening, explained to the audience why the county's Search and Rescue team is important.

Search and Rescue is a service that is required of county sheriff's by state statute, McKee said. Were it not for the volunteer work of the county Search and Rescue team, the operations and duties they perform would have to be provided by sheriff's deputies.

That would take county law enforcement off the streets where it is most needed, and would increase the cost of search and rescue operations.

The Search and Rescue team here is made up of private individuals who donate their time, skills and dedication to their life-saving work. The group holds some fundraising events on its own, and the unit's costs for special equipment and for official operations are reimbursed from the sheriff's budget, McKee explained.
