The moose are around town. Two were at the Steamboat Grand yesterday. The Yampa River Core Trail has also been closed at Fetcher Pond, as a cow and her newborn calf moose have been in the area. People are being asked to keep their distance, and especially if you have dogs with you on the trail. Make sure they’re leashed.

The on and off ramps on Mount Werner Road will be closed starting this morning. The City of Steamboat is milling and paving this area. Motorists should use Pine Grove as an alternative. Expect delays through the rest of the week. Mount Werner Road is one of 19 streets and three parking lots being paved this summer.

 

Winter air service has been announced into Yampa Valley Regional Airport. Here’s Steamboat Radio’s Vladan Chase.

The Steamboat Springs School Board has decided on what type of school will be on the November ballot. It will be a new Kindergarten through 8th grade campus at Steamboat II. The board voted unanimously. The future of the school depends on whether voters agree to pass a bond in November. The total amount could be $83.9 million dollars.

A woman named Paula Francis walked through Steamboat and Hayden, and on into Craig this week. She’s been walking for six years, hoping to walk 10,000 miles. On the way, she has been interviewing people to learn what makes people happy. Francis has made it 7,000 miles so far. She says she plans to end her walk sometime this year, and then publish the results of her happiness study.
