Republican U.S. Senate nominee Ken Buck’s Grassroots Tour will make stops on the Western Slope to talk about jobs, cutting spending and getting our economy back on track.

Buck will be in Garfield County at the GOP Headquarters, 918 Grand Ave., Glenwood Springs, today at 12:30 p.m.

The Frontier Historical Society still has tickets available for its 11th annual Historic Ghost Walk through Linwood (Pioneer) Cemetery in Glenwood Springs on Sunday, Oct. 31. Tours each night will lead you up the hill to the old cemetery where costumed actors portray pioneers from Glenwood Springs’ past, including “Doc” Holliday and Kid Curry.

Tours are at 7, 7:45 and 8:30 p.m. on Sundays. Tours are limited to 30 people each. Recommended for children school age and up.

Participants need to carry lanterns or flashlights for the moderately strenuous half-mile hike up to the cemetery. Lanterns will be available for purchase for $10 before each tour. Be advised that once up at the cemetery, the terrain is hilly and mildly strenuous. Wear appropriate footwear and be prepared for possible inclement weather. Do not attempt the hike if you have any type of physical limitations.

Tickets are $15 for all ages. Tickets for Frontier Historical Society members are $10. Tickets may be reserved with a credit card by calling the museum at (970) 945-4448. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.
