Students Tested To See If They Hold The Weight A student adds more weight In the crate which applies more force to the bridge structure. In the lower rlght picture, the bridge structure holds but the roadway gives way leaving a gaping hole for vehlcles to drop through to their wet and destructive demise. The brldge In the lower left picture wasn't as lucky. The bridge building class at Naturita Middle School recently experienced a test dif- ferent than the usual pencil and paper type. The class was test- ed to see if they held their weight at being amateur engi- neers. The class was broken into groups which designed their own bridges.

Everything fronl a body found to new evidence concerning the case. The Montrose County Sheriff's Posse secured the area and CBI began their investiga- tion of the reported bags. They were empty phistic bags buried near a tank outside of Uravan which brought suspicion. According to Sheriff Warren Waterman, CBI did the excavation of the bags and ran tests for hair and blood samples. lqothing was found and they are not sure' what was in them. CBI is running more lab tests to see what the bags may have con- tained. Sheriff Waterman sus- pects they may have contained refuse of some type deposited by either hunters or fishers in the area. Sheriff Waterman said CB1 is absolutely sure the bags are unrelated to the Dale Williams case. The case on Dale Williams was recently aired on Unsolved Mysteries last month bringing new interest to the case. The segment was sched- uled to be aired on the Lifetime Channel September 17, 2002. Many area residents watched the entire segment waiting to view the case but were disap- pointed by the end of the show. Unsolved Mysteries aired the Dale Williams segment the day before causing many to miss the episode. Dale Williams was last seen Thursday, May 27,1999. i i ii Cameron Riley spotted this funnel cloud last month while on a service call near the coke ovens. He called the Nucla.Naturita Telephone Company office in Nucla to ask f they could see it. They were able to view it from Nucla as well as some on Naturlta Hill.
