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

Andy Bockelman: ‘Rango’ brings shades of Western greats to animation

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.

H. Neal Glanville: Sickness instead of Santa Monica

As I lay in the corner last week, I pondered my next coughing fit with the weak side and his companion, Mr. Normal. Normal, by the way, was convinced he’d been the first to say I was sick. He thought it was oh so funny to try and pronounce the names on my medication bottles.

State of the County event attendance rule questioned

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.

Tim Douglas: Building the kingdom

In 1 Peter 2:5 (NIV), you, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. We moved here from Aberdeen, S.D., in a snowstorm in mid-November 2010. There were not as many rocks in northeastern South Dakota as there are here. I drive around town and see rocks used for landscaping and in many other creative ways.

MCHS girls golf takes 3rd in season-opening tournament

Without stepping on the fairway or getting the feel of a putting green, the Moffat County High School girls varsity golf team put on their uniforms Thursday and set out for their first tournament of the season in Palisade.

Annie's Mailbox for March 11, 2011: Girlfriend wants a 'break'

've been dating "Trish" for almost two years. She's a few years younger than I am. I always saw myself as being single forever, but now I've learned the real meaning of love.
