Craig briefs: Patient aid group to meet Friday


— Local residents invite the community to be part of Quilt for the Cure, which creates homemade quilts to be given to local cancer patients.

Members have donated more than 100 quilts through Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs.

The group plans to meet from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday in the basement of the Moffat County Extension Office, 539 Barclay St.

Organizers will buy pizza for everyone Friday and ask people to bring a potluck dish to share on Saturday.

All volunteers are welcome, even those who do not know how to quilt or sew. Organizers said there a lot of jobs to do for anyone who is interested.

For more information, call Lorrae Moon at 824-9568, Tina Smith at 824-1919 or Deb Behringer at 846-1949.

Some mailed ballots returned

Lila Herod, chief deputy clerk and recorder for Moffat County, said the U.S. Postal Service has returned 87 mail-in ballots as undeliverable.

Residents who requested mail-in ballots should already have received them in the mail.

Herod said many of the returned ballots may be because people moved.

However, officials are not allowed to forward ballots to different addresses, so those who should have received their ballot are encouraged to pick them up at the clerk's office in the Moffat County Courthouse, 221 W. Victory Way.

Early voting continues from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. today through Friday at the courthouse.

Vote centers also will be open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, which is Election Day.

The Craig vote center will be Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

There also will be vote centers in Maybell at the Maybell Community Center, 103 Ellis St., and in Dinosaur at the county library, 400 W. School St.
