Identity Graphics of Craig

Someone broke into Identity Graphics on Yampa Avenue in Craig Sunday night. They took computers, monitors, cash and power tools. Then they sprayed a fire extinguisher all over everything. Owner Dan Seely and his staff found the damage Monday morning and spent the day cleaning things up.

Call Craig Police if you have any leads on who might have done the damage to Identity Graphics. The number for Craig Police is 970-824-8111.

Someone is spray painting graffiti along Highway 64 in Rio Blanco County. Graffiti has also been painting along the green bridge on County Road 23A. One picture from the Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Office shows red spray paint with the words Lewis and Katie on it. If you know who might have done it, please call the Sheriff’s Office. They’d love to hear from you.


No structures have been affected by the Middle Fork Fire, which has burned over 8,000 acres in Routt National Forest. But embers and small flames can be carried more than a mile, which means homes could have to be evacuated. Here’s Incident Commander Sean Carey.

The Mullen Fire which is north of Routt County into Wyoming is at just about 78,000 acres (77,950) and is being fueled by strong winds and lots of dead trees caused from beetle kill. Both fires have caused closures and firefighters are asking that you respect those closed areas for your safety and that of those fighting the fires.




A new bus route from Craig to Denver is being considered from the Colorado Department of Transportation. CDOT would like to hear what you think on the Bustang Outrider. That includes stops and schedules and other feedback. Take the survey at:

If you’re driving from Craig to Steamboat, be aware of some more work being done on Highway 40. One east bound lane of Highway 40 and Lincoln Avenue will be closed Thursday, from Dream Island to 12th Street in Steamboat. The merge will start along West Lincoln Park. The city is wrapping up work on the Soda Creek Water Quality Improvement Project. It’s a water vault going in that collects debris and contaminates before being discharged into the Yampa River. The project will take about two weeks.

For the weather, don’t forget to call the KRAI Time, Temp, and Weather Hotline at 970-824-1918.
