4- San Mil~uel Basin Forum, Thursday, Jul~ i, 1999 of the Week Mini Cheese Burlier Hi Roger, I have been following your pieces on the disappearance of Dale Williams from the onset of this situation. My daughter, Judy, talks to her Dad who lives in Nucla, plus other friends of hers who live in the area. So, I hear all the rumors and gossip theoriesabout the Nuc'ia Mystery. I have to stand up for my old friend, Dale Williams. I have to speak out against the defaming rumors and gossip about one of the biggest men I have ever been graced to have for a true friend: Dale Williams, I have been working in law enforcement in Grants since 1988. I am a certified E911 Police Dispatcher and have worked for the City, Village, and Sheriff's Department, so I am not a complete novice to these type of situations. First and foremost, the depths of Dale Williams was known by his family. Dale claimed me as his friend when I really needed a friend many years ago when I lived in Nucla. I knew him well. I could walk up to him today, and know that the true friend would still be there. He was always loyal to his wife and kids. They were FIRST in his life. Always remember that Diana. NO...absolutely NO! Dale Williams did NOT just walk away from his life in Nucla. NO...absolutely NO! Dale Williams did not commit sui- cide.

You Roger, like myself and my two youngest kids, had the privilege of being a part of Dale's circle of real friends. Many times Dale said, "I will do whatever it takes to help you and your kids. Do not give up." NO...absolutely No! pale Williams did not leave us' all behind of his own free will. practiced what he preached... There is no such thing as a perfect crime. Dale left clues. IF there was foul play, Dale left behind something that will lead to him and hopefully to sus- peels. I know he did. To the people of the West End: Quit spending your energy on easy guesses about this situa- tion. Put your minds and hearts to work on solving this dilemma in a positive manner. That's what Dale would have done for any of you. I know that he would NOT have just sat around gossiping about a situation like this. He would be doing what- ever it took to help you. He would NOT have given up. Dale Williams was a big man. He will always be my cherished friend. My prayers are for you, Diana, and your children: Dorothy Dee Melrose-Spindler Sparklers, rockets and cherry bombs can help make for a great July 4th -- unless you take them on the National Forest. Because fireworks can reach temperatures of 1,500 degrees, they can easily start Forest fires. Each July 4th, thousands of peo- ple visit Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forests to camp, picnic and have family gatherings. Because their safety is at stake, it is against the law to even have fireworks in your possession when on National Forests. Lighting fireworks is an even more serious offense. "Despite good moisture in rec nt weeks, there is still the possibility of human-caused fire. Vegetation that has dried out can easily catch fire," said Forest Supervisor, Bob Storch. "Be careful with your campfires -- and please leave your fire- works at home." Toby Lopez was inad- vertantly left off of the Nucla High School 2nd Semester/ 4th Quarter Honor Roll. The NHS administration would like to apologize for the ommis- sion.
