Mardi Anson reflected on the past and looked toward the future in her State of the Chamber address Wednesday night.

Just when you thought you’d seen and heard it all, along comes a hillbilly jug band playing “Ride of the Valkyries.” And even that isn’t the most bizarre thing about the animated Western “Rango.” When his world, along with the terrarium he calls home, is shattered, a pet chameleon (voiced by Johnny Depp) separated from his owners is stranded on a desert highway.

Craig resident Ken Wergin appealed to the Craig City Council on Tuesday night. His request regarded the Craig Chamber of Commerce’s State of the County 2011 event Wednesday at the Holiday Inn of Craig. Wergin asked council members to do something about a Chamber board decision that would have prevented him from attending the event. After discussion, the city council stated that State of the County was the Chamber’s event and not under the city’s authority.
Just as everyone puts on pants one leg at a time, everyone needs medical care at one point or another. “That’s right,” said Marie Kettle, an emergency room nurse at The Memorial Hospital in Craig. “People of all levels need medical care. So, you treat them the same.” Still, one patient who walked through the ER doors in need of care Wednesday night was atypical for the local hospital.

Trish, however, has grown quite fond of the friendships.
