RESIDENTS GET A CHANCE TODA TO ‘HOWL’ ON HOWLER FOR $2
STEAMBOAT SPRINGSThe charge for “howling” took a two-day dip this weekend, as the company that owns and operates the slide is giving everyone a discount. Between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, the alpine slide on Howelsen Hill, also known as the Howler, costs only $2. The discount is courtesy of Slide Inc.
“We want to give everybody a chance to try out the slide,” said Jennifer Fuller, the ticket office manager at the slide.
Fuller said offering a discount to $2 per ride from $8 for adults and $7 for kids is a good way to give locals a chance to get down to the slide.

HOT SHOT CREW ARRIVES IN CRAIG TO PREPARE FOR FIRE SEASON
CRAIGThe new Hot Shots crew in Craig are in town and preparing for fire season.
The Craig Hot Shots are one of the 19 new shot crews established nationally in support of the National Fire Plan developed as a result of the taxing 2000 fire season. There are two new shot crews in Colorado, one with the Bureau of Land Management in Craig and the other with the U.S. Forest Service in Fort Collins.
Craig was selected as a housing site due to its central location for crew assignments on the Western Slope of Colorado as well as southern Wyoming and eastern Utah, said Lynn Barclay, BLM spokeswoman.
A hot shot, or Type I, crew is an extensively trained fire crew that handles the more complex wildland fires.
