Grand Junction Odds and Ends
Wrapping up President Obama's visit to Grand Junction yesterday:
- While Obama was at the health care forum, Michelle Obama and their daughters toured High Country Orchards, famous for its peaches, in nearby Palisade. (You can order online, or buy them at Whole Foods and some King Soopers stores.)
- Both the Grand Junction Police Department and Mesa County Sheriff's Office assisted with security for the President's visit. The police department estimates it cost them $3,000 to $5,000 and the Sheriff's office puts its tab around $5,000 to $10,000. Both agencies said it was an honor to assist the Secret Service and will not seek reimbursement from the feds. There were no arrests.
