MCHS volleyball loses to rival Steamboat

Ala. immigration law stands, but cops still wary

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — The police chief of a small town in the Appalachian foothills of Alabama didn't know what to do about checking the immigration status of a Hispanic man his department recently arrested on an old warrant.

Janet Sheridan: My friend, Ann Etta

The day before I attended my class reunion, I visited Uncle Norley. He greeted me at the door: “Your 50th reunion, huh? Next week I’m going to my 67th. I’m not looking forward to it, though. I don’t really like the other guy who’ll be there.” I laughed with my uncle who seems easy with his aging; but the next night I reflected more soberly about mine as the master of ceremonies read the names of forty-three deceased classmates.

Survivor: early breast cancer detection key to beating disease

The mammogram Carol Allen had in 2005 was supposed to have been routine. Allen, who has lived in Craig now for nearly 15 years, got mammograms regularly, although she didn’t expect they would reveal any trace of breast cancer. After all, there was no history of the disease in her family. But on that day six years ago, the unexpected became reality. It was through that mammogram Allen learned she had cancer in both breasts. Allen is still battling a metastasized form of the disease, yet she has hope. Cancer, she said, is not a death sentence.

It’s volunteers who make the Moffat County Fair an annual success

Completion Day 2011 for general 4-H projects is now a memory. So are the 2011 Moffat County Fair events such as the livestock, dog, horse, and pavilion open class competitions. That goes for the Junior Livestock Sale and Carcass Contest, too. All memories. The county fair is over for another year. It takes a lot of planning and leg work to put on a county fair, and it all happens because volunteers are there to help — lots of them — of every age and from every walk of life.
