Jimmy Westlake: Behold the Dog Star

There are 6,000 or so stars visible to the naked eye under ideal conditions, but only Sirius, the famous Dog Star, can claim the title of “The Brightest Star.”

Heather Overton: Street plowing is great

This letter is in response to Ms. Boss. I understand that these winter months can be a pain in the butt, but if you have lived here for 20 years you should be use to it by now. I agree the roads aren't exactly easy to deal with, how do you think the plow drivers feel?

Wes Counts: City does great job with roads

In the Feb. 5 edition of the paper a letter from a Craig resident was printed. The lady was complaining about the street snow removal. I thought about her sad situation she was experiencing and have a couple of comments.

Prather’s Pick: An itchy tale

Groundhog Day has just come and gone. This week’s picture book for children is about a groundhog, but the story takes place in summer when Groundhog likes to sit propped up against a tree, to sleep, and to watch the clouds go by.

Lance Scranton: It’s about the team

I will readily admit that I soak up as much of the Super Bowl post game interviews as I can because no other sport exemplifies the complete dependence on the “team” principle than football. I hear the word “team” trotted out so often by people who have no idea what playing on a team, with a team, for a team really means.

Mike Littwin: Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl storybook ending

Of all Peyton Manning’s many remarkable career statistics, this one may be the most remarkable of them all: When Manning inevitably announces his retirement sometime over the next few days or weeks, he will become only the second Hall-of-Fame-caliber quarterback in NFL history to have gone out on top, with a Super Bowl victory in his last game, with the storied sunset beckoning, with no more worlds to conquer.

History in Focus: Alonzo Edgar Cook, Junior — 1,003 days

Victory in World War II was brought about by a multitude of individual acts of duty and courage. The story of Craig’s Alonzo Edgar Cook in the Philippines gives us a glimpse into how the fighting spirit and determination of each individual ultimately made the difference in victory over Japan.

Lois Stoffle: A heartfelt thanks

Saying “Thank You” for so much love and concern seems so inadequate.

Dave DeRose: Thank a snow plower

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and that applies to our services as well. It is your point of perception that will frame your reaction to any situation.

CMEDP Column: Here's to a prosperous 2016 for our community

A blank piece of paper. Lofty goals. I am a list maker and I love the idea of beginning fresh with a new list, just as Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership has recently done.
