Yuma Middle School eighth-graders compete in the marshmallow catapult during the YMS Olympics, held Tuesday morning on the first day of school. The YMS students began the new school with the fun event in the gym. Members of each grade, 5 through 8, as well as staff members were selected to participate in a series of competitions, with a new group selected for each event. All the Olympic “teams” also had their own flag to wave around.
The Yuma School District-1 Board of Education will have a special meeting Monday night for the next step in the potential upgrade and expansion project on the Yuma High School campus.
The board will be meeting to consider adopting a resolution outlining an intergovernmental agreement with the Yuma County Clerk & Recorder’s Office to participate in November’s coordinated election.
Some real encouraging progress now is being made on the Main St. Project in Yuma.
While crews have been steadily making progress since the project began on June 6, it is now to the point, at least in the downtown area, that there are visible signs of heading toward completion.
A Yuma man is facing attempted murder and other charges following a shooting at a Yuma residence, Saturday, August 13.
The victim, William Patrick Ford, 49, who goes by “Buck” is in a metro Denver-area hospital. He was in critical condition, according to the Yuma Police Department.
An orange-clad inmate from the Yuma County Jail leans down to inspect a leafy watermelon plant.
“Do you see that back there?” he asks, pointing to a watermelon that is just about the size of a quarter. “Here’s another one. There’s a lot of them growing; right here is another set.”
