When we recognized our mistake, we put correct information on the San Juan Record website and the San Juan Record Facebook page.
While more than 200 people attended the meeting, I understand that some people may have missed the meeting. If you missed the meeting because of our mistake, my sincere apologies.
Of course, attendance at a meeting means nothing unless you submit written comments about the sage grouse proposal.
Don’t forget to submit written comments before the March 12 deadline.
They can be sent to Public Comments Processing, Attn: FWS-R6-ES-2011-0111, Division of Policy and Directives Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, 4401 N Fairfax Drive, MS 2042-PDM, Arlington, VA 22203.
A document to guide your comments has been prepared by San Juan County. It can be downloaded from this page.

It used to be a rare thing to see an eagle in San Juan County. In recent years, however, it is easy. Just head north and east of Monticello and wait a little while.
Before you know it, you will see birds of all kinds, including eagles, hawks, ravens and crows. Apparently, all of these species have developed a taste for sage grouse.
I’m not sure what you do when one threatened species is feeding on another endangered species.

New faces at the San Juan Record office and bookstore are Cathy Hatch and Merri Allyson Platt. They are both working part time to fill the very large shoes left by departing employee Jill Slack.
There may also be additional new faces at the San Juan Record in the future. More than 30 people responded to our job listing.

Local subscribers will get a copy of the Monticello High School Lariat in this issue of the San Juan Record.
Don’t miss the excellent story on the Greater Canyonlands Monument proposal by Nathalie Reay, which begins on the front page. Reay is a freshman at MHS.
We are pleased to announce that the San Juan High School Rattler will also be inserted in the San Juan Record on an occasional basis.
Including the high school papers in theSan Juan Record is beneficial to all. Readers get excellent news from the schools and the high school students get an expanded audience for their efforts. We hope you enjoy!
