Before you fire up the grill Wednesday, or maybe as you're waiting for the coals to burn down (if you're a charcoal cooker), look for these two stories in the Gazette:
In Metro: Bill Vogrin went fossil hunting with experts in Red Rock Canyon Open Space and found dinosaur footprints, fossilized clams; the teeth of shell-crushing sharks; and numerous imprints of nautilus-like ammonites.
Check this for a sneak preview.
Another promising story, this time in Sports:
Brian Gomez is writing about the Mountain Bike Marathon National Championships in Breckenridge. He said he'll talk to at least one of these three Springs cyclists: Kelli Emmett, Sam Jurekovic or Katherine Compton.
