Rifle Citizen Telegram flag graphic

The city of Rifle is slated to start several projects which will begin this month and carry through the summer.

Waterproofing project: The Ute Theater Foundation will dig up the existing foundation of the Ute Theater and waterproof the concrete to stop leaks. High ground water levels in the past have caused drywall and carpet damage in the Ute Theater. The project funded by a Garfield County Federal Mineral Lease Grant will stop continuous repair of the changing rooms within the theater, and will be completed by mid-June.

Road rebuilding and pedestrian improvements: A rebuilding project will improve the failing Fravert Boulevard and West Fifth to Fairway Avenue. A continuous sidewalk will be added up the hill to Fairway Avenue to provide a safe pedestrian corridor.  The project will begin mid-June and continue throughout the summer; 60% of this project’s funding came from the Garfield County Mineral Lease Grant.

Margaret Josephs’ home renovation has been a long, slow process — and “the Marge” won’t let her contractor husband, Joe, forget it. With her New Jersey manse still a work in progress, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member has taken playful jabs at her husband at every turn.

For example: “[The house] is not even close to done, I’m still living in my closet,” she told back in 2018. “When you’re sleeping with the contractor and you’re the girlfriend, you get a lot done. When you’re married to the contractor you get sh-t done.”

Even compared to Android Auto, Android’s TV incarnation hasn’t exactly been getting much attention, especially from Google itself. The past months, however, have been particularly interesting, especially with rumors around Google’s first Android TV dongle. As if heralding the arrival of that “Sabrina” device, Google has now announced the Android 11 update for Android TV, promising to bring a handful of improvements that will hopefully prepare the platform for the future.
