Veterans Hotline: Honor flight open to World War II veterans

I heard a rumor that the Western Slope Honor Flight was going to take Korean War veterans on its trip to Washington, D.C. This is not true. Maybe sometime in the future this will happen, but the flight going out May 4 and 5 is full and there is a waiting list for the next flight.

MCHS staffers putting yearbook to bed

For the Moffat County High School yearbook staff, putting together the annual keepsake is an ongoing endeavor. “Once we do our final submission and the yearbooks are being printed at the production plant, that’s when we start our planning,” MCHS yearbook advisor Casey Kilpatrick said. “We’ll decide on a theme, what kind of graphic elements we want to use, how we want to break the yearbook down, what kind of coverage we want, all the details.

The case for station no. 2 in Craig

Chris Nichols, a Craig Rural Fire Protection District Board member, was recently posed a question. “Somebody once said, ‘We live in a one-horse town (so) why do we need two fire stations?’” he said. Nichols, the former chief of Craig Fire/Rescue, had a response.

Over a Cup: Try this scrumptious ‘Sopapilla Cheesecake’

Remember the “Taco Soup” I featured in this column a few weeks ago? It was contributed by Lona Allum, of Maryland. I finally got a chance to try the recipe, and we liked it, especially served with taco chips.

Agriculture & Livestock: Moffat County participants enjoy ‘4-H Got Game’ retreat

Having celebrated its 100th birthday last year, Colorado 4-H is now “Ready for Another 100 Years.” And so, getting on with business to begin the next 100 years, 13 Moffat County 4-H members, chaperones and 4-H Agent Alisa Comstock recently traveled to Glenwood Springs to attend the 18th Annual District 11 and 12 Retreat.

Lawrence Sober: Not’ international police’

To the editor: Our country is in debt more than $14 trillion and our president just got us into another war. The lowest ranking combat infantry private knows that it’s impossible to win a war without using ground forces. We have a president who refuses to secure our own borders, yet he is quick to get us into another war in an Arab nation? Now they want to arm a rebel army that no one knows anything about. We armed rebel forces in Afghanistan so they could defeat the Russians.

John Milligan: Wife will get kidney

To the editor: To the community: It’s official. I am giving my wife a kidney.

Baxter Black: Food and fiber

I was pondering on the seemingly frivolous tendency of humans to disregard some of the basic accomplishments that brought mankind to our esteemed place on the planet Earth in the 21st Century. For example, in order to move beyond the gathering roots and berries phase, they discovered the life-giving dense protein, meat. In the progression of civilization, they learned how to hunt. The benefits of adding meat to their diet were stupendous.

Editorial: Is station No. 2 needed?

It’s no secret the men and women of Craig Fire/Rescue are brave, talented and dedicated, traits that are rare these days. In 2006, after two previous attempts, local voters finally gave the thumbs up to a mill levy increase that would boost funding for the Craig Rural Fire Protection District for much needed equipment upgrades for our firefighting volunteers. The Editorial Board supports that decision — we want to make sure our fire department has as much equipment as they need to safely and efficiently fight fires and serve the public.

Annie's Mailbox for April 2, 2011: Unsure how to kick son out of house

I am ready for the loony farm. Both of my adult sons are back at home, one with his child. My husband retired last year. I am still working. One son, "Matt," contributes toward rent and household chores, but the other, "Joe," sits like a bump on a log and does nothing. I'm sure that Joe has Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, but he won't do anything about it. I don't want to throw him out, but he leaves us no choice.
