Teacher of the Year nominations sought

Teachers are some of the hardest-working, yet sometimes under-appreciated, professionals in today's workforce.

The Craig Daily Press recognizes area teachers by honoring one each spring with the Teacher of the Year award. Last year's recipient was Rosemary Crosthwaite, who was St. Mark's Preschool director for a quarter century.

Area residents are invited to nominate their favorite teacher by writing a nomination of no more than 100 words about why he or she deserves the award. You must include your name for the nomination to be counted.

Nominations may be dropped off at the Daily Press office, 466 Yampa Ave., e-mailed to or mailed to Craig Daily Press, Attn: Jerry Raehal, P.O. Box 5, Craig, CO 81626.

Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. May 2.

The winner will be decided by the Daily Press editorial board, which includes employees and community members, based on the entries.

The winner will be notified the following week, and the Craig Daily Press will publish a feature story about the 2008 recipient.

Water roundtable has numerous openings

The Yampa/White Basin Roundtable, which guides solutions to regional water issues, is accepting applications for nine open voting seats: one seat representing recreation interests, one seat representing local domestic water providers, one seat representing industrial interests, one seat representing the Green River basin and five at-large seats.

There also are three non-voting seats open. These seats represent entities outside the Yampa/White/Green river basins that own water rights within the basins.

The state Legislature formed roundtables representing nine river basins across the state and one representing the Denver metro area in 2006 to create collaborative solutions to regional and statewide water issues.

The Yampa/White Basin Roundtable meets quarterly at different locations in Northwest Colorado. Interested parties should send a letter of interest and qualifications to Paul Strong at P.O. Box 776189, Steamboat Springs, CO, 80477, by April 10. Contact Strong at 879-9211 or and learn more about the roundtables through the state Department of Natural Resources at
