Highway Memorial on Colorado Hwy 133 for Edwardo “Eddie” Carrillo and Alexi Armendariz.

Family and friends gathered last Friday to mourn and remember 18 year old North Fork High school student Edwardo “Eddie” Carrillo. Carrillo and 17 year old Alexi Armendariz, a Delta High School student, were killed last week in a car crash on Hwy 133. The two teens were passengers in a car that went off the road throwing both passengers from the vehicle. The driver and another passenger were also injured. The Colorado State Patrol investigation is still under way.

A formal petition with 56 signatures was presented to the Paonia Town of Trustees at the Oct. 13 meeting. The petition dated Oct. 10 requested “the immediate resignation/removal of Trustee Thomas Markle based on his unprofessional actions and abusive behaviors. The petition also noted the blatant violations of the Town Meeting Rules of Order and of Sunshine Laws as well as Markle’s lack of knowledge and sensitivity of the community at large. The petitioners referenced Markle’s actions recorded on the town’s YouTube challenge. No formal action was taken at the meeting.
