TUESDAY’S COMMUNITY BLOOD DRIVE STILL IN SEARCH OF DONORS

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSDonors are still needed to give blood on Tuesday from 12:30 to 6 p.m. at the Steamboat Springs Airport.

The earliest time slots are filled, but people are still encouraged to make appointments for the remainder of the day by calling blood drive coordinator Terry Sherrill at 879-2081. Walk-ins are discouraged because unscheduled appointments hurt efforts to manage the amount of blood coming in. Bonfils Blood Bank of the Lowery Center in Aurora comes to Steamboat every other month to collect blood.

Bonfils steps up efforts to collect blood around the holidays, as the need intensifies with more people traveling and the likelihood of accidents increases.

Potential donors often find they do not have the time and energy to participate in another blood drive, but the need does not go away, Sherrill said.

FOREST SERVICE SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENT ON POKER RUN

STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe Forest Service is seeking comments about the poker run held by the North Park Snow Snakes in the Gould area, using state, private and federal lands. This year the club proposes to move the event to the west side of North Park and hold the event primarily on National Forest System lands, with a limited amount held on private lands.

All gambling will be off NFS land. Use of NFS lands will consist of a snowmobile ride with checkpoints. The event will take place on existing marked trails in the Buffalo Pass area and will cover about 26 miles. The proposed date is Feb. 16, 2002. The Forest Service would like to receive any comments regarding this event by Jan. 7, 2002. Send comments to Parks Ranger District, Attn: Heather Westfahl, P.O. Box 158, Walden, CO 80480.
