Pueblo County Commissioners have approved $957K to complete the design of the eastern channel expansion of the River Walk and the construction of a boat house. The drawings and planning should be completed in about 10 months.

Pueblo County voters will vote on a school bond issue in November. Either voters will cast a ballot on a $218 million bond measure for D60 or a $60 million bond measure for D70. The D60 measure will fund two new high schools and make needed improvements and upgrades at 11 elementary and middle schools. That translates to $78.27 in residential property taxes annually per $100,000 assessed valuation.

The D70 proposal will cost taxpayers 48 cents in additional taxes per $100,000 assessed valuation. The difference in the cost to taxpayers is that $20 million of the D70 proposal will be used to retire old debt. The money would be used for needed repairs and upgrades to 18 elementary, middle and high schools.

Marcus Jones was the winner of the Don’t Fear the Reaper pepper-eating contest at Musso Farms in Pueblo. Jones, in the finals, ate two peppers, known as ‘Chocolate Death’”, which are 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.

In Colorado, the average August temperature hit 68.4 degrees, which was three degrees above average. The average temperature for the summer reached 66 degrees, which was 1.5 degrees above the average according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
