Two Wild Sisters store

to move

Two Wild Sisters, a native American Indian jewelry and art shop, is moving from its Main Street Mall location to a street-level store in the Lincoln West mall Friday.

“We’ve just grown so much,” said Sandra Milne, who with Tara Thompson owns the store. “Every time we got more than 20 visitors in our store, we didn’t have enough room.”

The two women will host a grand opening Friday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. They will close the four-year-old Main Street Mall store in September.

No fire restrictions in place for Fourth of July

SUMMIT COUNTY – This weekend, Fourth of July revelers will be allowed to have campfires in national forest campgrounds, but they are still prohibited from lighting fireworks in the national forests.

“One spark from a firework can grow into a significant wildfire very easily,” said Hal Coombs, assistant fire management officer for the Upper Colorado Interagency Central Management Zone.

Although the High Country has received much more moisture than it did last year, that precipitation has resulted in the fast growth of lighter fuels, such as grasses. These fuels, even though green, can easily ignite and burn very quickly.

Officials with the White River National Forest recommend campers:

n Clear the brush from around campfire rings;

n Keep campfires small;

n Make sure campfires and warming fires are completely out before leaving – even if it’s for a short time;

n Never leave a campfire unattended;

n Always have on hand a bucket of water, garden hose or other water source to douse the fire or any sparks that get away;

n Keep fuels upwind and away from campfire rings;

n Smoke only in cleared areas;

n Avoid parking and driving in grass or brush;

n Check catalytic converters daily, removing all flammable material buildup;

n Use spark arresters on all chainsaws;

n Check with local officials to determine if fire restrictions are in place.

Information about fire restrictions can be obtained at the U.S. Forest Service’s Dillon district office, at (970) 468-5400.
