Shannon Ketchum Mugshot

Colorado State Patrol arrested a 35-year-old woman in Hayden Monday. Shannon Ketchum is suspected of stealing a car from Evans, Colorado. She says it’s just a misunderstanding. Ketchum is in the Routt County Jail on $10,000 bond.




Scam alert. Someone has been calling people in Routt County saying they are a lieutenant at Routt County Sheriff’s Office and you have to give them money because of a warrant out for their arrest. Not true. Several calls came in Tuesday, one to a dental office in Steamboat, and they were asking for Walmart gift cards so an employee there wouldn’t be arrested. Here’s undersheriff Doug Scherar.

Never go and get gift cards, or give credit card or bank information out over the phone. If you are suspicious, call the police or sheriff’s office. 

A bear that has been rummaging through trash in downtown Steamboat has been captured and relocated to somewhere north of Meeker. Kris Middledorf with Colorado Parks and Wildlife isn’t happy that the bear had to be moved.

Middledorf says they had to do it because the bear was eating trash from residents.

Middledorf says to keep your trash inside and get a bear-proof trash can.

The Moffat County Local Marketing District has its regular meeting at 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon. But this week, it will be at Craig City Hall, in council chambers, on 4th Street. Board members will consider funding requests for Octoberfest, an enduro race in May, and the Dinosaur Welcome Center. They will also be updated on new signage in Moffat County.

The big Momma Outfitters Consignment Sale is Friday and Saturday. Amanda Rizzuto is helping organize it. She says they’ll have clothes for preemies to boys and girls size 20, plus a lot more.

It is free to get in, and then everything is half price for the final four hours on Saturday. Consignors get 60 percent and then 40 percent goes to the Yampa Valley Pregnancy & Family Center. The consignment sale is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. this Friday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. this Saturday. It’s at the grandstands at Moffat County Fair Grounds.

Also Friday morning, you’ll see a new look on the Craig Press website. It will have a new and improved look that is easier to read on your phone, tablet, or desktop.
