Weather Alerts: Winter Weather Advisory View Alert Details

Concussions are common on the field

March is Brain Injury Awareness Month and one common example of a traumatic brain injury is a concussion. The CDC says that when it comes to concussions, young athletes are most at risk.

Mesa County Partners works with at risk youth in our community, getting them involved in activities and provide positive services to them. Thursday, members of the mentor program were able to do the same by giving back to another organization in the Valley.

It's been nearly a month since there was any measurable rain in the Valley. Pair that lack of rain with dry, warm, and windy weather and you get the perfect combination for a brush fire.

GJPD is investigating a robbery at a Pizza Hut where a man with a knife made off with cash. A similar burglary happened last week at a nearby Burger King.
