Some Routt County nurses are down in Denver today to protest at the Colorado State Capitol, in coordination with a rally in Washington D.C. It’s to bring awareness to nursing staffing ratios and fair wages and push for change.
There is an opening on the Routt County Planning Commission and the Board of Adjustment. It’s for someone who lives in the Town of Yampa.
Kokos, the missing Jack Russell Terrier mix, is now safe at home now with owner Craig Knapp. Kokos was found this weekend after being missing for six weeks and two days.
Kokos had recently been spotted near Strawberry Park Elementary. Animal Control Officer Jennifer Good set a trap and that’s when they caught her. Knapp appreciates the community’s help for the long month and a half that Kokos was out on her own.
Kokos is in Steamboat with two other dogs. They all came from a shelter in Thailand where Knapp used to volunteer. He also says that when they go on walks now, Kokos seems to like to eat worms, which he thinks must have been something she did for the six weeks that she was missing.
