Posting a Wordle sounds more fun. Tuesday saw some of Mesa County’s worst COVID-19 numbers since the pandemic began. At last night’s school board meeting, some people urged the district to remove all COVID-19 protections. Others pleaded against that

Local organization Black Friends and Citizens put on the event. The group’s David Combs says this is not a celebration, as the King family requested no celebrations until voting rights legislation is passed. Instead, it’s a commemoration.

Payton Weir, 7, marched with the crowd to Handy Chapel, Grand Junction’s historically Black church, where people laid down roses. “What have you done for others?” was the theme of the day

David Combs asked the crowd to encourage everyone who isn’t registered to vote to register — and to actually vote when the time comes. He also said everyone should contact the powers that be and demand they pass voting-rights legislation.

I so, so loved my time @WNCW and getting to know my favorite bluegrass group, @BalsamRange
So many good things about @BalsamRange - they make superb #Bluegrass and put on a marvelous show. Tonight in Spindale for @WNCW’s Goin’ Across the Mountain Live

Mesa County recorded 335 cases today. If this had happened a week ago, it would be our highest day ever — but instead it’s third or fourth, I think. It reminds me of that scene in the movie Toys when walls are literally closing in on everyone piped.kavin.rocks/K0thlffZdFk

District 51, the largest one in Mesa County, only requires masks in certain circumstances, like 2% of your entire school testing positive for COVID-19. At the moment, that means five schools are requiring masks, and it looks like another eight are teetering close.

It's pretty common for schools to not require them in Colorado (I don't know the breakdown of how many do versus how many don't). Eagle County, for example, is rescinding its mask order for high schools Monday, while younger kids will be in masks for another week.

This was difficult and important for me to watch.
My first time in the burn area in Boulder County. It felt like being in the CGI of a post-apocalyptic video game. It was almost impossible for my brain to process all of it as real and here in Colorado. Some clean up starts today. #MarshallFire

This stock photo, in a story about how cats can catch COVID, hits a little too close to home.

It's hard to convey what a big role City Market plays in smaller communities on the Western Slope. In Glenwood Springs, it's one of the few spots with fresh produce. In Grand Junction, many people walk to City Market, as it's the only grocer near their home.
