On these beautiful April days, the warm rays of sun melt the snow faster.

Days are warm and washed with light, although the hills remain covered deep with snow. This glad season signals the end of winter’s cold. Crocuses are peeking through the melting snow.

April is Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month.

There will be a new moon on Sunday, April 6.

A public forum was held Tuesday evening in Kremmling’s West Grand P-K school. Candidates running for trustee positions in Kremmling ” Ken Bentler, Eric Woog and Isaac Shonlau ” were questioned.

Thanks to Chris Overholt, the long lost is finally found. Chris pulled Inell’s little dog’s brown fur sweater out of a snowbank in his yard when the snow started melting this spring. Saydee (the dog) lost it the first time she wor it after Christmas. (Inell probably didn’t have it fastened on her tight enough). The sweater was a precious gift from Inell’s 97-year-old sister, Evelyn, and Chris Overholt just can’t be thanked enough.

Misty Overholt is on a leave from her position at Kremmling’s Bank of the West, because of a few little health problems.
