A local wildlife officer known for being a leader in land management issues and relationship building has been named Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Officer of the Year. Libbie Miller is the district wildlife manager in the Yampa District and started working for the agency formerly known as the Colorado Division of Wildlife in 1997. She was assigned to the south Steamboat district before transferring to Yampa in 2004. Miller was presented with the award last month.

GOP's Zellers and Thompson say they'll suspend minimum wage if elected governor 7.4.2014 MinnPost
The latest on the minimum wage deal … start with our own story from Briana Bierschbach . For the AP, Brian Bakst says , “If the bill passes, Minnesota would go from having one of the nation's lowest minimum wages to one of the highest. ‘No Minnesotan should have to work a 40-hour week and continue to live in poverty," House Speaker Paul Thissen, DFL-Minneapolis, said. The wage would be indexed for inflation starting in 2018, with an annual 2.5 percent cap. A decision on whether or not to block an automatic increase would rest with the Department of Labor and Industry,” i.e. the governor. Stribber Rachel-Stassen-Berger is saying, “The final agreement would phase in the wage hike by 2016, by which time most large businesses would have to pay their workers $9.50 an hour. Smaller businesses, those with gross sales under $500,000 a year, would be able to pay workers $7.75. Businesses employing workers aged 16 and 17, teenage workers during a 90-day training period and workers in the country on J1 visas would ...
