1. Try a tasty peach-focused recipe.

According to The Kitchen Diva, “My recipe for Grilled Peaches with Lemon Honey Cream is an easy way to showcase the delicious flavor of summer peaches.”

2. Learn about simple snacks for hikes and overnight trips.

“The food you choose while hiking and backpacking needs to keep you fueled while you move, especially if you plan to keep going and going and going,” reported Kim Fuller.

3. Learn about this book: Annie Barrow’s “The Truth According to Us.”

“The author Barrows, who completed the bestselling ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’ when her aunt, author Mary Ann Shaffer, became ill, does a masterful job with Willa and her narrative,” wrote NLB Horton. “The female voices are straight from Southern society (bless their hearts). Barrows’ gift with dialogue — the unique cadence of each speaker and the expression of humorous thoughts and painful choices — makes ‘The Truth According to Us’ a summer-reading treasure.”

Out West Books, located at 533 Main St., in downtown Grand Junction, currently has this book in stock.

4. Learn about The Art Center’s new executive director, Mikkel Kelly.

According to The Art Center, “Kelly will be relocating from the Westminster, Colorado. His background includes extensive experience in arts and music, management, media, marketing, public affairs and community interaction with a passion for best practices and shared value partnerships.”

5. Learn about “rabbit fever,” which can be dangerous to a variety of animals, including household pets.

Mesa County Health Department recently announced that “a rabbit from the east side of Colorado National Monument has tested positive for tularemia. Residents should be aware tularemia could present in animals anywhere in Mesa County.”
