Throughout the past three-plus years that I have been publisher of this newspaper, I have published several editorials urging the citizens of Craig to assist in beautifying our town. I have volunteered with different organizations to assist in yard work, clean-up or other miscellaneous tasks.

Well, this week, I was notified by city code enforcement officials that I have violated city code. A week ago Sunday, I placed some tables, a large piece of wood, and a box spring and mattress on the south side of my garage with plans of borrowing someone's pick-up the following Saturday and taking a load of junk to the landfill.

Well, the word embarrassment does not even come close to explaining how I felt Thursday night when I received a call from the code enforcement officials.

I am impressed (now, because I was not impressed after receiving the call) that the city is taking a more active role in enforcing the code to keep our town presentable. Good work, and please rest assured that my mattresses and miscellaneous junk has been removed from my property and taken to the dump.

I suggest you do the same before you receive that same call.

Adding staff, services

Carolyn Gochee, D.C., Chiropractor has added a new member to her team. Terri McIntyre-Strickland, M.A., according to, graduated from PIMA Medical School. "I feel that by making the process easy to understand and simple I benefit my patients in the best way," Strickland said.

Gochee has added the service blood draws and analysis to meet the needs of the community.

"We offer very low pricing for people who don't have insurance coverage for blood analysis," Gochee said.

You can find out more about the practice by logging on to the Web site, stopping by the office at 595 Russell Str. or calling 824-3070.
