DENVER, Colo. (KKCO) This help would include both Mesa and Montrose counties after freezing temperatures in April caused a loss in crops. Mesa county had an estimated 30% loss in grapes. Montrose county had about an 85% loss in cherries. State officials are hoping aid can be provided as soon as possible. The USDA announced on Friday that land in its conservation reserve program can be used for emergency grazing by other Colorado counties.

    He described his Lt. Gov as a 'rising $ex star' so maybe he should do an adult movie to fund this shortfall? God knows none of them would ever forgo a pay decrease to help out. And no, no raise
    Is not a decrease gov trolls. You make far far more than anyone in private sector that you steal from to pay yourselves.
