than a month after his the truck of Dale Williams was found Sunday, in the river below Uravan. According to Montrose County Lt. Shawn Cline, a local family was fishing in the river on Sunday afternoon when, upon swimming in to retrieve a tangled line, the pick up was discovered. There was no trace of Williams, and a metal tool- box that had been bolted onto the back of the white, 1994 Ford F-250 was not there.

Shawn Cline The Clam )etts Come to Nucla Officials removed the truck on Monday, and it has been taken to Montrose for process- ing. "It's a possibility that Dale could have wrecked the truck and been washed out, but right now, there's really no way to tell at this time if he was inside the vehicle at the time that it went in," Cline said on Tuesday. "We don't know yet how long the truck was in the river or how it came to be there." While not giving the specific location of the discovery, Cline said that it was a portion of the river that lie fairly closely to the highway. He also said that the truck, while heavily damaged from perhaps a month or more in the water, was in fair body c dition. nvestigations at the scene of t' 'e discovery will continue this week.

J The Paradox Charter School got a tentative thumbs up from the West End Public School Board last week, contingent upon approval of their charter contract later this month. "I think that it will be so much better for the kids, offer so many more things that the public school cannot offer." Tim Walsh, Paradox Community Member After Tim Walsh and other parents in the Paradox commu- nity were told a mere two months ago that the elementary school, that was closed for financial reasons two years ago, could not be reopened by the district, they were encouraged to explore the concept of a charter school. A core group of parents formed together, not only "exploring" the possibility, but also drawing up a contract, seeking enrollment for the school and securing $10,000, with another $75,000 grant waiting the school board's approval at last Tuesday night's meeting. "Originally, I was interested in just having the school opened up again," Walsh explained to a large crowd present at the West End board meeting. "But after exploring what a charter school can do, I think that it will be so much better for the kids, offer so many more things that the public school cannot offer. The charter school is what we want now." Jed, Jethro, Granny and Ellie Mac (a.k a. Joe, Wade, Jamie and Melissa Garvey) vowed that they'd "Strike It Rich In 2000" at the Water Days Parade in Nucla last Saturday.
