Craig briefs for April 11

Pet program accepting members


The Craig chapter of Heeling Friends pet visitation program, a Delta Society affiliate, will hold team screening and training beginning at the end of April.

Screening will help owners learn if they and their dogs are suitable candidates for visitation at The Memorial Hospital and what is involved in becoming a Pet Partners team through the Delta Society.

Evaluations will be held in Craig in May with hospital orientation and mentoring to follow. Current Pet Partners teams who wish to join the Heeling Friends program will be given priority.

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, 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.
