— Question 1: How much are you willing to pay for a good employee?

Is it $1,000, $2,000 or even $5,000? In this day and age in Craig, when all employers are looking for quality employees to work for them, this is a tough question to answer.

On Saturday, there will be nearly 100 future Moffat County employees showcasing their talents at the Moffat County Fair Junior Livestock Sale. They all have worked hard during the past year to raise, groom and train the animals that they will auction off at the sale.

Question 2: How much are you willing to pay for a quality piece of meat?

The many editorial boards that have served this newspaper during the past couple of years have all said it takes a community to raise a child. Well, here is your chance. The children selling their animals at the fair need buyers. I want to encourage you to go out and spend however much money you are willing and able to spend to do your part.

I know that each and every one of us is constantly being hit up to sponsor this and sponsor that, purchase this or purchase that. In this case, you not only would be sponsoring an event and buying a product, you would also be getting one hell of a good product out of it, too. More importantly, you would be supporting the future of Moffat County.

Let me provide you with some of the excuses you may have: I am too busy, I am going to be out of town, the sale goes on too long until I can no longer afford an animal, I have family visiting; those seats are uncomfortable, and so on and so on.

Now, let me erase those excuses. If you can't be there, get in touch with me, and I will spend your money for you. I will stay within your budget. I will ensure that all your preferences are met - it's that important to me.

Don't let this opportunity to support both the future of your business and the youths of our community pass you by.
