MCSD responds to ACLU allegations

The Moffat County School District responded Friday to a letter from the American Civil Liberties Union regarding the district’s actions on students wearing breast cancer awareness bracelets. In a news release, the school district stated that administrators never banned the bracelets, which read “I (heart) Boobies. Keep a Breast Alive!” The school district “did try, in isolated individual instances, to find alternatives to the bracelet that did not cause interruptions to our primary goals of teaching and learning,” the district said in the release.

Sisterhood support: Craig residents starting women’s running club

Whether it’s sitting outside alone or having dinner with friends, Craig resident Kristin Allen said mothers need their personal time. Such is the inspiration behind a new exercise group, the Sole Sisters Women’s Running Club, started by Allen and a group of her close friends. “It is hard to juggle kids, making dinner and just all the running around,” said Allen, 37. “Running was one of the things I could fit into my schedule.”

MCTA given approval for 2nd staffer

Kandee Dilldine, chairwoman of the Moffat County Tourism Association Board, said having only one paid staff member has kept the organization from accomplishing as much as it would like at times. The problem, she said, comes from administrative duties that take time away from the MCTA director. “That’s what happens a lot of times when you have a director like that, they’re doing more administrative (work) than the director part of it, the marketing part, which is what we want from that position,” Dilldine said.

Jessica Wiseman said she barely knew Sarah Fleming. “I knew of her,” Wiseman said. “I participated in 4-H with her, but I was so much younger than her. “But, she was one of those people that I looked up to in the 4-H program. She was always great with the younger kids.”

The Rev. Tony Bohrer: The power of forgiveness — part 2

I chose forgiveness as a column topic again because I think there is liberty in forgiveness. It’s something that from a young age we have to learn or we will be miserable in this life. I believe it is one of the most important lessons we have to learn, and at times it’s the most difficult lesson to learn.

H. Neal Glanville: Dinner in the clink

My uncle Blaine accomplished things most of us only dream about. Although some were firmly in the grey area, most were just about having fun. He and several friends decided looking up old girlfriends might be the way to spend a few early spring days. Only one of these men had ever been married — he’d lost his wife and three good horses to a schoolteacher in Heber, Utah.

Annie's Mailbox for May 13, 2011: Daughter's children ill behaved when she's around

My daughter has five beautiful children whom we love very much. My husband and I often take the kids overnight and on weekends to give some quiet time to their parents. When the children are with us, they behave beautifully. But when their parents walk back in the door, it is a total disaster. This past weekend was the worst.
