While most of the coverage of air emissions issues tends to focus on the more densely populated Denver Metro area, we on the Western Slope have a great deal of familiarity on the issue given our history of oil and gas development. That's why I'm hopeful the Colorado Oil & Gas Association's new "Clear the Air: The Facts on Climate, Emissions and Ozone" campaign maintains a statewide focus and serves to further dialogue on how we optimize our air quality everywhere. There's a lot of misinformation out there, and I think we'd all be well-served to use this as an opportunity to come together and find solutions that are not only effective in improving our air quality, but in keeping our statewide economy on a positive upward path. I applaud the industry for getting this conversation going.
At about 9:50 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, officers of the Delta Police Department were dispatched to a robbery reported at Arby's, located at 107 Gunnison River Drive. An extensive search of the area was conducted and the suspect was not located.
The suspect was reported to have walked into Arby's and after a brief conversation with an employee, was able to leave the store with a small amount of cash and coins.
