Reporters’ Notebook

“Reporters’ Notebook” is a roundup of quotes, notes, bits and bites gleaned from meetings, events, press releases, e-mails or simply overheard on the street. Some of it is just for fun, and some of it is newsworthy tidbits that did not find a home in the other pages of the paper. Look for “Reporters’ Notebook” each Monday in the Summit Daily News.

The State Board of the Great Outdoors Colorado (GOCO) Trust Fund will hold its regular business meeting in Frisco 9:30 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Oct. 3 at the Summit County Community and Senior Center at the County Commons.

Among the topics to be discussed are planning grant award decisions, board committee structure, and overdue grants. Updates will also be given on the ongoing GOCO rule making process and the search for a new GOCO executive director.
