Craig Police and Federal Law Enforcement agencies have intercepted just over three pounds of methamphetamine last week. 47-year-old Nancy Grijalba of Craig was arrested in connection with the movement of the drugs. The 14th Judicial District reports that her charges are Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Distribute, which is a Class 1 Drug Felony. She was also charged with Child Abuse. Grijalba’s bond was set at $50,000.
Two midwives have been added to the staff at the UCHealth Women’s Care Clinic in Steamboat Springs. Liz Kilmer-Sterling made the move from Craig after Memorial Regional Health ended its obstetric services in January. She says she has delivered about 25 babies in Steamboat since then. Nurse-midwife Jennifer Allen started in May.
