Here are some of January’s entries for the New Year’s and winter activities categories in the Craig Daily Press Your Community Snapshots photo contest.
Business honored at State of the County event
Despite winning the Craig Chamber of Commerce’s large business of the year award, Gisela Garrison doesn’t see the Northwest Colorado Community Health Center as a typical business.
Frank and Kerry Moe consider winning the Small Business of the Year award a reflection of their quality staff rather than a pat on their own backs. “It’s not really our award,” Frank said. “We couldn’t do this without the help of our employees. We consider it a recognition for the entire staff.”
If the stock market has a down day, LPL Financial Services owner Dean Brosious is awoken by the same sound that disturbs brokers across the country. Brosious was honored for his services to the community Friday at the State of the County event, where he was presented with the Craig Chamber of Commerce Businessperson of the Year award.
Chapman’s Automotive has installed a new alignment machine. This new machine’s HawkEye™ sensors use multi-dimensional modeling to provide accurate alignment measurements.
Concerning the matter of the school calendar, I would like to make a recommendation. I have taken the context of that calendar and changed it.
For any normal kid, having sensory control over water fountains or being able to hold your breath in the pool for seven minutes may seem peculiar. But for the eponymous hero of “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” those are the more ordinary parts of your day.
“We opened the bowling center in October of 2005. We thought the community needed a new a place for bowling, and we wanted to provide that. We wanted a state-of-the-art facility for everybody to go."
Regarding the Moffat County School District’s proposed calendar: What I don’t think is in the best interest of the kids is the number of days off during the school year or the two-hour early release every other week.
As I watched the news the other day, I realized how bad our education system is failing. Either that or our politicians took a different math class than the rest of us Americans did. The debate is finally over in one area.
Snow blankets the ground, but plans for community gardens are sprouting up throughout Routt County. Having fresh affordable produce to eat, relieving stress and getting exercise while planting, weeding, watering and harvesting healthy food are among the many reasons gardeners develop green thumbs.
MCHS wrestler has highest finish for school at state tournament
Moments after winning his match against Thompson Valley’s Kyle McNally, Moffat County High School wrestler Charlie Griffiths had one thing on his mind. “I need to start getting ready for next year,” he said. “I only have one more chance.” Griffiths, a junior, wrestled his way to a third-place finish in the 145-pound class Saturday at the state wrestling tournament.
Dear Annie: I am 49 years old and have been a “flexitarian” for 10 years, with fish being my primary protein source.
A year and a bit ago, the majority of Craig was excited about the new Hampton Inn & Suites being built at 377 Cedar Court. Of course, another motel made as much sense to some as another foreign food restaurant, but local contractors jumped at the chance to help Craig expand and keep more of its earned dollars in town.
