Attendance Down At Spring Expo

The annual 93.7 102 KRAI and 55 Country Spring Expo brought in a smaller than expected crowd over the weekend.  According to 93.7 102 KRAI and 55 Country management, the low attendance numbers, has them scratching their heads, but was attributed largely to the struggling economy in Northwest Colorado.  The first day of the Spring Expo, had the lowest attendance in recent memory.  Day two brought in a much larger crowd.

High Speed Chase Ends After An Hour

Law enforcement chased a wanted man through Craig for nearly 45 minutes Friday afternoon.  According to Craig Police, officers tried to pull over 25 year old Joshua Flaharty of Oak Creek on two felony warrants: one for possession of a controlled substance, the other for possession of an explosive device.  Flaharty was also suspected of making threats to schools in the area.  When officers arrived, Flaharty took off in his Jeep, leading officers on a 40 minute chase along the streets of Craig.  Flaharty eventually left town on Highway 40, and Hayden officers laid stop sticks across the highway.  Flaharty drove through the sticks and passed through Hayden before State troopers finally forced him off the road and into a ditch.  Flaharty suffered minor injuries in the crash, and is now being held at the Moffat County Jail.  The Moffat and Routt County Sheriff’s offices were also involved in the pursuit.
