    “Yeah, that’s not going to be a problem,” I told him.

    The Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District will switch financial institutions in an attempt to stop fraudulent withdrawals from the district’s Wells Fargo checking account.
    Although Wells Fargo reimbursed all of the money, Inter-Canyon’s board of directors determined it had no choice but to make a change.  
    “The account is definitely contaminated,” Karl Firor, Inter-Canyon’s treasurer, said of the Wells Fargo account. “(The bank) caught them. We obviously stopped them, but we need to stop this account.”

  • For NHRA star, racing at Bandimere is a unique experience

    MORRISON — Even though the Mopar Mile-High Nationals NHRA race is the most difficult on the 24-race tour every year, national Pro Stock star Jeg Coughlin Jr. always looks forward to racing and reuniting with old friends at Bandimere Speedway.

    Working to be bipartisan
    Editor:
    Some questions have come to my mind and might have come to yours:  What does it mean to be a leader? A senator? A representative of the people? A

  • A tribute to an American maverick

    Millions of Americans have Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, on their minds as he again fights for his life. This time, he is battling a brain tumor. I admit that he is my favorite among modern-day politicians. He is a war hero, a maverick who is driven by his conscience, and a father figure who demonstrates exceptional character. You have to love his self-deprecating communication style.
