GARCO BOARD SENDS LETTER TO BLM OVER NEW LAND USE REGS
Glenwood Springs—Garfield County simply wanted an explanation from the Bureau of Land Management on the new Planning 2.0 land use regulations. Assistant County Manager Fred Jarman says no one at the local or state offices could provide answers. That's a big reason the county sent a letter to BLM Director Neil Kornze objecting the new rules. Jarman says the excludes local governments from acting as coordinating agencies during the planning process and thereby endangering local economies.
GLENWOOD TEEN KILLED IN WRONG-WAY CRASH
Glenwood Springs—Alcohol and possibly drug use may have been factors in a deadly, wrong-way, head-on collision Sunday morning near New Castle. According to reports from the Colorado State Patrol and Garfield County Coroner Robert Glassmire, 19 year old Eduardo Muniz of Glenwood Springs was going the wrong direction on westbound I-70 between New Castle and Canyon Creek when he slammed his Acura Integra head-on into a late model Toyota Corolla around 5:20am Sunday. Muniz was killed instantly while two women in the Toyota were rushed to Valley View Hospital with serious injuries. Authorities had to rely on a fingerprint scanner to identify Muniz. Glassmire says it will be some time before toxicology tests are complete. Meanwhile, he is asking anyone with information regarding where Muniz was before the accident, to call the Coroner's office at 665-6335.
