Mesa County’s Department of Child Welfare says that the call volume reporting abuse drops during the summer months. From January to May, nearly 800 calls come in each month to Child Welfare Services.
Fire crews are still battling the 416 fire down in southwestern Colorado. The damage the fire's caused has convinced some local folks to come up with an idea, a Community Emergency Relief Fund.
Right now, the District has a few policies—one for tobacco and alcohol use, a couple for HIV and AIDS education and one for family life and health education. None of these policies have been updated since 2002.
