Grand County bids farewell to Brad and Marilyn Orr. For the past 11 years (since February 2003) Brad has served as the Sulphur Ranger District's recreation manager. Through his work with the U.S. Forest Service, he was active in developing the James Peak Protection Area Legislation and was integral in helping map and improve the ranger district's road systems. He also worked closely with Winter Park Resort, the Arapaho National Recreation Area, Grand County's many trails organizations and National Forest campground hosts. He is moving on to become the District Ranger of the Juneau Ranger District of the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. Together, he and his wife Marilyn have been active community members, helping organize National Public Lands Day, attending the Grand Lake Repertory Theatre and volunteering for St. John's Episcopal Church in Granby, where Brad served as Senior Warden.
