Alexander Joseph Woodfield Mug shot









A Craig man has been arrested, and charged with a felony and a misdemeanor. 21-year-old Alexander Joseph Woodfield is accused of giving underage persons alcohol and marijuana in the parking lot of Ridgeview Elementary School in Craig. The Craig Press reports someone called police when they saw the suspicious vehicle at the school. Police noticed it was Woodfield, who had a warrant out for his arrest from a previous burglary case at Mather’s Bar where $800 dollars worth of quarters were stolen. Woodfield has bonded out of jail and is set to be in court Oct. 29.

Residents of Hayden are voicing their overwhelming support to turn the Hayden school into a community center. In an online survey, about 98 percent of respondents are in favor of saving the old secondary school, which will be vacant as soon as the new school is built. Grant money is paying for the new school. Part of the deal is that the old school gets torn down unless a public entity opts to purchase or operate it. If that happens, some repairs need to be done. There is a community meeting to discuss it at 4 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at Hayden High School.

The Yampa Valley Conservation Partnership is having an open house this Tuesday. It’s to commemorate the merger between the Colorado Cattlemen’s Agricultural Land Trust and the Yampa Valley Land Trust. Megan Knott is with the cattlemen’s group. She says Moffat County still has a heavily agriculturally oriented community and there are still a lot of conservation opportunities in Moffat County in the ag community.

The Open House is from 5-8 p.m. this Tuesday, at the Steamboat Art Museum. Everyone is invited.

A moose was stuck in a deep bog near Fish Creek Reservoir and some hunters rallied together to get the moose out. They called Colorado Parks and Wildlife to help. They used a catch pole and some tow straps to pull the moose out, who was submerged up to her head. When they pulled her out, she accidentally rolled right back in so they had to do it again. After a few minutes of rest, she was on her way. The wildlife officer said to call them if you ever see a large animal like that in trouble, and he thanked the hunters for helping rescue the big moose.
