At each meeting, the invited guests broke into small groups to discuss their thoughts with a United Way representative. Pearce said a broad range of issues were raised, including a lack of transitional housing and public transportation, an overall unstable economy, the need to teach parenting skills, and a shortage of programs for substance abuse treatment and prevention. “We also talked about the assets of the community,” Pearce said. “A lot of that was the people of the community, the caring nature and generosity of the community, the college, the outdoor lifestyle that we have.”

Craig auto dealers braving bad economy, seeking a better spring

Jerry Thompson, owner of Craig Ford, said he has a simple philosophy about going to work each morning. “I guess my saying is that I just get up and come to work every day and see what it is going to bring,” he said.

H. Neal Glanville: Remember our roots

Here’s a startling revelation: I love Craig, and other than my childhood haunts, I can think of no better place to live and grow older than Craig. Oh sure, I’ve made more than my share of trips over the hill, which is why the sign was posted directly across from Lake Dumont on Rabbit Ears Pass that simply reads “it’s time to go home now, H. Neal.” I know you’re either smiling or grumbling about what we have or don’t have, but Craig has a quality that you can’t quite put your finger on and that keeps us here.

Valerie Rohrich: Watch your speed
