A joint public hearing between Gunnison County Commissioners and Planning Commission last week over a proposed workforce housing development south of Crested Butte proved both lengthy and contentious. At times, the proceedings were disrupted by shouts and finger pointing.

Kay Marie Cotten, formerly of Gunnison, passed away Feb. 18 at the age of 70 at Eagle Ridge of Grand Valley in Grand Junction, Colo.

Ruth Elizabeth Chavies, daughter of Timothy and Mary (Spock) Chavies was born May 17, 1923 in Walsenburg, Colo., and peacefully passed into rest Feb. 16 in Gunnison. She was 94.

Robert E. Miller, age 86, passed away at his home in Conroe, Texas surrounded by his family on Friday, Feb. 9.
