As has been the case recently, an empty spot stood between the window and bottles of Skyy Vodka on the shelf at Big Sids Bottles Monday.Normally a 1.75 liter bottle of Gordons Vodka would be there, but recently the beverage has become popular with thieves.Five times in the last six months someone has broken into Big Sids. The first time, the person threw a rock through the front door, said manager Doug Bernes. The noise of crashing glass must have scared them off, because they didnt take anything, he said. In the next three burglaries the perpetrator broke the far left window. In two of those the thief grabbed a bottle of Gordons, said Bernes. The same may have happened again Sunday night, had the window not been boarded up from last weeks burglary.Instead, a man threw a rock through the middle window of Big Sids and climbed inside.

Two Garfield County lawmakers are paddling in different directions regarding a bill that would restrict how much water can be allocated for whitewater parks.State Rep. Kathleen Curry, D-Gunnison, did not vote last week when state Sen. Jack Taylors bill was approved 8-2 by the House Agriculture, Livestock and Natural Resources Committee. Curry chairs that committee. But she received legal advice that for her to vote might be a conflict of interest because she could be seen as having a personal interest in the outcome of the case.Thats because Curry previously served as manager of the Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District. The district obtained a recreational water decree that was recently the subject of a Colorado Supreme Court decision after being challenged by the Colorado Water Conservation District.Taylors bill seeks to clarify a 2001 state law that allow for applications for recreational in-channel diversions, and to put an upper limit on those diversions. But Curry says that while clarification is needed, she is uncomfortable with his proposal to limit those diversions to 350 cubic feet per second.

RIFLE Training has a lot to do with it, but maybe theres something in the towns water supply that produces champion wrestlers from Rifle.Keaton Long and James Conrardy, eighth-graders at Rifle Middle School, earned individual state champion honors at recently held tournaments held on the Front Range.Long, climbed the top rung of the medalist platform by winning her weight division at Colorados United States Girls Wrestling association-sanctioned tournament in Fort Lupton.
