"Colorado West agricultural, industrial, timber, and mining economies may very well become pawns in this struggle between aggressive, well-financed Front Range interests.

It would seem prudent, on the part of affected Colorado West organizations to take notice of these developments and make some kind of effort to establish a consensus position. Hie basic issue is whether to continue to try to use boundaries of proposed wilderness areas to fight transmountain water diversions or whether to accept agreements with transmountain water diversion proponents.

July 8th at St. Marys Hospital. Grand Junctions shiny new rescue squad is suffering from a bashed-in cab, among other things, following an early morning accident. There were no patients in the squad and the rescue crew was all right. Charles Robert Anderson, 25, of Frisco, driver of the other vehicle, sustained arm injuries.

Fire Chief R.T. Mantlo took him to St. Marys Hospital, where he was treated and released. The rescue squad was summoned to 348 White shortly after 12:40 a.m. today.

According to police, the squad, driven by Jim Terry, 31, was northbound on Fifth with overhead redlights on but no siren and slowed to about 10 miles per hour to cross the intersection at Colorado against a red light. Police said Anderson, eastbound on Colorado approaching Fifth observed the squad, slammed on his brakes and slid into the intersection striking the left side of the squad above the rear tire and knocking it ova on its side. From the skid marks, police estimated Andersons speed at 45 miles per hour. A fire truck washed down the gas spilled by the squad and stood by until it was righted and hauled off to the city shops. Initially, damage was estimated at quite a bit.

Hie backup rescue unit took care of the initial call. Police said investigation into the accident is continuing. Amid talk that airport operations are moving into the red, the Airport Authority Monday tentatively approved $60,000 in summer improvements. Airport Manager Jim Spelman told the board that the revenue account balance in the month of June dropped to $5,536 and at this rate we will be in a minus position soon. While the airport went $30,000 into the red last year, Spelman said he expects it to be self supporting next year and, "I would like touuell the sometime attitude of poor boy vmich is degrading to the authority.

Spelman listed $80,000 in airport improvements in order of their priority but said only the first $60,000 will probably be completed this year as city-county revenue sharing funds are depleted. He said he has broken the projects into increments below $10,000 so they wouldnt have to be bid. The projects, in order of priority: A paving project that would allow the northeast comer of APCOAS lot to be cut off for use by buses and taxis and in return an area to the south would be" paved for employe parking. Moving the main doors from the terminal to the ramp east, adding 400 square feet of lobby and constructing ticket counters lor a United-Western Air Stages operation. Extending Frontier terminal space eight feet north.

Installation of Taxiway entrance lights and possibly the strobe type lights required for runway ends. A multiple use area, by buses, Western Air Lines and possibly for a newsstand and candy counter where Western Air Stages is now located. Purchase of Frontiers holding tank and location of it between the terminal and Monarch Aviation as an additional boarding gate. Gates to secure the public loading zones for buses, rent-a-cars and APCOA. New restrooms at the west end of the terminal and elimination of the outdoor restroom unit.

Those improvements that will probably wait until next year are repairs to the old indoor rest rooms, lobby signing, additional windows in the restaurant and a new airlines operation areas. The board gave Spelman approval to get firm prices on the projects and bring them to the next meeting. Spelman also said that total traffic increased by 359 boardings in June, most of it was made up by United Air Lines and the gradual and steady climb continues. The Weather?
