Changes abound this season for Moffat County High School girls swimming, but one thing remains the same year after year: the act of getting in the water and moving to the other side of the pool as quickly as possible. MCHS aquatics will see some differences this year, primarily positive, as the Bulldogs welcome back coach Meghan Francone and also move into a 3A classification.
This time of year it’s not only jolly men in red, fur trimmed leisure suits who are nibbling on cakes, cookies and candy canes. Tempting sweet holiday treats are on offer just about everywhere. Area dentists offer some surprising advice about the treats most likely to cause cavities and sports drinks rank high on their Grinch list.
This time of year, many of us in this part of the country have a freezer full of elk. Elk meat is the leanest, healthiest red and white meat available.

When your skin is dry and flaky, it’s important to exfoliate dead skin off your body. After you exfoliate, don’t forget to moisturize.

Moffat County High School wrestling took another win for the week, this time being Friday in Hotchkiss. MCHS finished the evening 36-33 against their Bulldog doppelgangers.
Thunder Run Survival plans to send holiday greetings, care packages to military personnel
Whether in a combat zone or stationed on a base a thousand miles from home, the holidays can be a trying time for members of the military. As much camaraderie as there may be among fellow soldiers, spending Christmas away from one’s family and friends can be difficult. And, that’s why people of Northwest Colorado are providing a bit of cheer for those in uniform. Thunder Run Survival is collecting cards and letters to send to those in the armed forces for the holiday season. The business at 500 Yampa Ave. began gathering greetings from Craig residents during the Dec. 3 Down Home Christmas Celebration.
A battle of the Bulldogs Friday afternoon saw two groups of gritty canines seeking a win after a loss the previous night, and unfortunately for Moffat County High School fans, the Dogs wearing a color other than blue walked away triumphant.

A Christmas poem.
Through the good times and not so good, one thing remains constant: the charitable spirit of the folks in our community. During 2016, the Interfaith Food Bank has been the beneficiary of food and money raised by United Way, the US Post Office, Craig Middle School, The Memorial Hospital, the recent KRAI Holiday Drive, and individual food and financial gifts too numerous to mention.
It seems to me to let the barn go and let the $100,000 go to a better use.
Since I’ve gotten to be an adult, I’ve tried to “bring up” the same wonderful feeling of anticipation that I used to have when we kids got ready for the Christmas program at the Morapos School. That was the country school that we community kids attended through grade eight. And the feeling of anticipation? Well, I can’t quite seem to bring it back to mind; that’s what happens when we grow up, I guess.
If you live in a rural community, you can probably name many examples of a multi-generational family that operates a ranch or farm. Their lives are built around the animals or crops they raise. Last August I spent a couple days gathering and branding calves for a local rancher.
This week we received an “open now” box from our son Jamie’s family who lives at Bailey. We knew the box was coming because our daughter-in- law Brandi called to give us a “heads up” that the box would contain perishables. It is a tradition for her to put together a box like this each Christmas.
