May 14th, 2004 - Public Hearing On Proposed Estes Park Fire Protection District Set... A public hearing has been set for June 1st, at 3pm in the Larimer County Commissioner's Office, to review the plans for the proposed Estes Park Fire Protection District... The proposed plan would allow creation of a new fire district covering some 90 square miles... With the Loveland Rural Fire Protection on the Northeast,  Glen Haven Fire District on the north, RMNP on the West, and Big Elk, Pinewood Springs, and Allenspark Districts of the South/Southeast areas currently in limbo would be covered, leading to a safer community and potentially lower insurance premiums... Property exclusion requests are available... For more information, or to volunteer to be a fire board candidate, please call 970-577-0900...


May 13th, 2004 - Area Rivers On The Rise... Recent rain and snow is combining with snow pack melt-off to send the levels of the Big Thompson and North Fork upward... While not at flood stage, the water is flowing rapidly and is to be considered very dangerous... Residents are advised to use extreme caution around local waterways especially with children and pets... Water levels are expected to continue their rise for the next few weeks as snow in the high country continues to melt...

May 9th, 2004 - Gas Prices And Oil Profits Both Continue Upward... The price of a gallon of gasoline is continuing to rise at the same time that oil companies are reporting record profits... It has been reported that Exxon may soon surpass General Electric as America's largest corporation...  Nice to know we are contributing to their success... A morning check of prices in the Estes Park area shows an average of $2.09/gal for unleaded regular... At the current rate of increase, $3.00/gal is possible by the Fourth of July... 

Gas prices rise along with oil companies profits
