KRAI News for Tuesday, March 16, 2021

Heavy snow on the Front Range has kept U.S. Postal Service trucks from being dispatched out of Denver. No delivery trucks with mail made it to Steamboat Springs Monday and no trucks went out. The mail in Craig comes from the dispatch center in Grand Junction so mail did arrive on Monday but Amazon packages weren’t able to make it to Moffat County for delivery.

It’s Spring Break so no school but food will still be distributed. Nutrition Services with the Moffat County School District will still have grab-and-go meals during Spring Break Week. It’s breakfast and lunch for any community member under the age of 18. They’re available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day this week in the north parking lot at Craig Middle School. You can also pick up seven days’ worth of breakfast and lunch at a time.

The Yampa Valley Community Foundation is available in Moffat County now, twice a month. You’ll find Community Impact Manager Helen Beall working out of the Yampa Building in downtown Craig on the second Thursday and fourth Tuesday of every month. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Community Foundation is available to meet with non-profit organizations, government agencies and community members. Upcoming dates: March 23, April 8 and 27, May 14 and 25, June 10 and 22, July 8 and 20, August 12 and 24, Sept. 9 and 28, October 14 and 26, Nov. 11 and 23, and Dec. 9 and 28.

Today is a meeting day for the Moffat County Board of County Commissioners. The Wildfire Annual Operating Plan will be discussed. Staff reports are from the Land Use Board, Dan Miller with Road and Bridge, and Roy Tipton from the Office of Development Services.

The Steamboat Sailors ended their battle for a 4A state championship with a loss to Montrose last night. The Sailors headed west out of a snowy Steamboat with a police escort, and fans cheering for them along the route out of town. Parents who also made the trip to Montrose showed their support to the end.

The Sailors Basketball team ends their season at 16-1.
