Open space fuel permit sale has begun
Jefferson County Open Space is sellingfuel-wood permits for logs from forest-management activities at Flying J Ranch and White Ranch Parks.
The logs are in large piles next to service roads within the parks.
Permits will be available at the Open Space offices, 700 Jefferson County Parkway, Suite 100, in Golden 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The cost is $20 for a compact truck, $25 for standard pickups or for trailers. Cash and personal checks will be accepted, but not credit cards. Four-wheel drive vehicles are required for wood pickup at White Ranch Park and recommended for Flying J Ranch Park.
Permit holders must provide their own chainsaws to cut the logs into firewood lengths.
Free energy contest
From now, through Sept. 3, Xcel Energy is running an online contest, “Volt of Knowledge,” for Xcel Energy customers on the company’s Facebook page.
One grand-prize winner will be given a check for $1,000, roughly one year’s worth of electricity.
Seven runners-up will receive a check for roughly a month’s worth of electricity.
The contest is designed to educate customers about the programs and services Xcel Energy offers, from renewable energy and energy efficiency programs to local grants, services and economic development.
Each week, the company’s Facebook page will feature three new trivia questions. People will be prompted to answer questions and given a chance to enter.
The public can enter once per week until Sept. 3.
National Farmers Week burritos
This National Farmers Market Week (Aug. 5-11), the first 250 people at 12 different metro Denver/Boulder farmers-market locations will receive a free $10 token from Chipotle Mexican Grill to use at any vendor for local food or produce within the market. In addition, recipients will get a buy-one-get-one-burrito offer (BOGO), which can be redeemed at any Colorado Chipotle location, good for burritos, burrito bowls or tacos.
Additionally, Chipotle plans to provide $10 tokens and BOGO offers to organizations and individuals in the neighboring areas of farmers markets to encourage people to go to the markets.
The company hopes the tokens will generate up to $42,000 for local farmers.
