Former Craig resident misses small-town life


To the Editor:
As a longtime subscriber, since the Craig Daily Press started, I still enjoy the information, obituaries and social events the paper covers. There are so many new people in the Craig area. That is good! I would still be living in my log house down by the river except that my husband, Bill, had a massive stroke Dec. 13, 1992, while rodeoing at the fairgrounds.
That changed all of the family's plans. He was flown to Grand Junction and died three years later. Now none of the family lives in Craig. Some friends do though, and I enjoy hearing of the new activities that have been introduced.
The college seems to be doing great. I went to classes when it met in the schools and I graduated with an associate's degree. If I were living there, I would be going to classes.
I can't do that here. It's just too much trouble, and there are a lot of problems with being elderly. My back yard in Craig was next to the Public Safety Center. There were always does and sometimes elk by the horse barn. I sure do miss that.
I hope the people in the area now don't scare them away so that they will live and give pleasure to the people, as they did our family.
