Owner: Craig pawn shop a unique and needed business

Years ago, when Jeff Knights was a deputy sheriff with the Moffat County Sheriff’s Office, he’d visit the Northwest Pawn Shop to talk with then-owner Otis Fleetwood. “We’d get a theft or burglary or something, and it was just standard procedure to stop in there and say, ‘Hey, keep your eyes open. If something comes up, let us know,’” Knights recalled. Today, Knights is on the other side of the counter. He has owned the shop, 801 E. Victory Way, for six years.

As Steve Martinson headed down a dry ski slope June 25 in Beaver Creek, he saw people wiping out left and right.

As athletes continued falling face first, Martinson, a Craig resident, said he had never seen anything like it.

Baxter Black: The mad cow escape

It’s more than six hours from Sierraville to Modesto, Calif., and the packinghouse. Karl had put together a load of cull cows. While unloading, a bony gummer mama cow who looked like a ragged shag carpet hanging over a sawhorse, balked, backed up, and fell between the chute and the truck. Karl leaped after the critter shouting profanities. Ever Ready, as we’ll call the cow, turned, charged and put him under the trailer. Evaluating his predicament, Karl dialed the nearby sale barn requesting assistance and to bring a rifle. Ever Ready wheeled and took off.

Editorial: Crime and just punishment

First, some words about what this editorial is not. It’s not an opinion requesting society be softer on hard crimes. It’s not advocating for lesser punishments for violent offenders or those who shamelessly peddle drugs.
