It’s another slow weekend in Craig, but it might be a welcome respite.
The skies are forecasted to clear up for the weekend, so you can get outside for work or play.
And watch out for next weekend — it’s shaping up to be a busy one.

• Next week, a unique opportunity presents itself.
The Ohio Valley Refinery & Roadshow comes to Craig and invites residents to take antiques, collectibles and gold and silver items for possible sale.
The show runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sept. 17 and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 18. It’s at Hampton Inn & Suites, 377 Cedar Court.
So head on down and see if you can make some cash from those hidden treasures in your attic.
• Saturday is the ninth anniversary of Sept. 11.
It’s an annual reminder to recall, reflect and remember.
• Playing at West Theatre are “Nanny McPhee Returns” — which looks like a cute family movie — and “The Last Exorcism” — definitely not a family movie, but could be a decent thriller.
Redbox has “Date Night” — I so wanted to see that, because, really, who doesn’t love Steve Carell and Tina Fey? — “The Joneses” and “Jackie Chan Kung Fu Master.”
