If voters decide to recall District Attorney Colleen Truden next Tuesday, they shouldnt expect her to be leaving office the next day.In fact, the election would not become official and if recalled, Trudens successor could not be sworn in until Jan. 6 at the earliest. And Truden would be entitled to remain in office until then.While that may be too long for some of Trudens critics, it still wouldnt be much time to hand off duties to the apparent DA-elect. In the event of a recall, Truden and her successor could need all that time to effect a smooth transition assuming both parties are willing to cooperate with each other.

Checkmate.With furrowed eyebrows signifying deep concentration, 8th graders huddled in groups of three over chess boards, considering kings, pawns and, of course, devastating their opponents with a few ingenious moves. Nearly 60 middle schoolers in 6th through 8th grades from all over Garfield County gathered for an annual chess tournament at Colorado Mountain College in Glenwood Springs Wednesday morning. It was the first round of a two-part tourney, the second half of which will be held in the spring, when the overall winner will be announced. The defending champion is Carbondale Middle School, whose chessmasters took the tourney in both 2003 and 2004, but students from Parachute, Rifle, Glenwood, New Castle and Basalt have designs on swiping that title from the wily Wolverines.
