The dispatch center in Grand Junction was asking for a wildland fire crew to help fight the Brush Mountain fire, located 17 miles northwest of DeBeque near Grand Junction.At the time of the call, the fire had grown to more than 2,200 acres and had the potential to grow much larger.The assignment for the Breckenridge crew is for up to two weeks with the possibility of a crew swap to extend services to the end of the summer. According to the Red, White & Blue, these assignments provide some excellent benefits to the local departments.First, the firefighters get experience and training that would otherwise be unavailable to them in Summit County. This experience – will be invaluable if a significant wildfire ever strikes here.Secondly, the income made by the departments during these assignments allows them to purchase and maintain wildland fire equipment.Big band soundsblow through BreckenridgeBRECKENRIDGE -Today at 7 p.m. the town of Breckenridge presents the fifth in its Kidz Calliope series with a trio of talented vocalists.

After the concoction has had time to settle, county street sweepers come along and clean up whatever rock hasn’t glued itself to the asphalt.The technique helps keep moisture from seeping into the road and extends the life of the asphalt, Polhemus said.Chip sealing under wayacross county roadsSUMMIT COUNTY – The sections of tiny rock appearing along portions of roads in Summit County are part of a county maintenance project to seal up the surface of the existing asphalt, according to County Road and Bridge Director John Polhemus.The rock is part of what’s called a “chip seal,” where three-eighths inch rock is poured on tar over the asphalt surface.

Plans to work on County Road 30 toward Heeney, if they are completed during August as scheduled, would add another 10 miles to the total. The chip seal costs about $1.29 per square yard.
