Sunshine winners named

At the Craig Chamber of Commerce's Wake-Up Craig breakfast Thursday, the organization named Frank and Tammie Hanel, owners of KRAI, the quarterly Sunshine Award winners.

Chamber Executive Director Christina Currie said the award is given to those who improve the quality of life in Craig.

She said KRAI's annual holiday drive benefits nonprofits and involves many youth volunteers.

"They're great role models in terms of teaching youth the value of volunteering in their community," Currie said of the Hanels.

The Chamber is also currently seeking nominations for Businessperson of the Year, Small Business of the Year and Large Business of the Year, to be presented at the annual meeting Feb. 20.

A small business is one with 40 or fewer employees. A large business is one with 41 or more employees.
