Garfield County’s Energy Advisory Board, which meets monthly in Rifle, has six openings for citizen representatives.

Those interested must live in the district they will represent. New districts were recently created as a way to increase citizen participation in the board’s work, and those interested can get details about the openings by calling Wendy Swan in the county’s oil and gas liaison office, at 625-5915.

The EAB was created several years ago to provide a forum for local citizens, government officials and representatives of the oil and gas industry to sit down periodically and discuss problems, ideas and other matters in a neutral setting.

The deadline for letters of interest is Oct. 15, and they can be sent by email to Swan at wswan@garfield-county.com.

Potential members will be interviewed by a subcommittee of the EAB, probably in late October.

Tickets are now on sale for the annual Historic Ghost Walk through the Linwood (Pioneer) Cemetery in Glenwood Springs, which will take place three weekends in a row starting on Oct. 16.

The dates are Oct. 16, 17 and 18; Oct. 23, 24 and 25; and Oct. 30 and 31.

The event involves a 45-minute guided tour up the half-mile trail to the historic cemetery, situated on the eastern canyon wall above town. Costumed actors portray colorful characters out of the town’s past, such as Doc Holliday and Kid Curry.

Participants are encouraged to carry lanterns or flashlights for the moderately strenuous walk.

Tickets are $15 per person [$10 for Frontier Historical Society members]. They may be purchased by calling the Frontier Historical Museum at 945-4448, or by visiting the website of the Glenwood Springs Central Reservations office, http://www.visitglenwood.com or calling 8888-445-3696.

The event is a fundraiser for the society and museum.
