A barrel of fun: Craig couple wins contest, chance to participate in 2012 NFL Draft

Craig resident Jamie Felten owes her son, Jerik, big-time. If not for their son, Jamie and her husband, Tim, would not have the opportunity of a lifetime. The Feltens will be in New York City this weekend, getting a firsthand look at the 2012 NFL Draft. The Craig couple won the “Paint the Town Orange” contest sponsored by Colorado-based business, Kwal Paint. The prize package includes a three-night trip to the Big Apple for two, a pre-event breakfast with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, reserved VIP seating for the draft and the chance to announce one of the Denver Broncos’ fourth-round draft picks.

VFW, Craig City Council discuss reopening negotiations

The future of Veterans Memorial Park, once known as Craig City Park, was again a discussion item during Tuesday’s Craig City Council meeting. Guy Bradshaw, commander-elect of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4265, was joined by more than a dozen local veterans in his pitch to resuscitate lease negotiations between the VFW and the city. “Due to volatile public attitude both directed to the VFW and the city council, we believe it would be a severe injustice to the people of Craig, the city council and the Veterans of Foreign Wars to discontinue lease negotiations,” Bradshaw said. “That doesn’t mean we are going to come to an agreement anytime soon, but the day the city council and the Veterans of Foreign Wars stop talking about a park the public has had access to since 1947 is the day we embark down the wrong path.” Bradshaw cited the outcome of the April 10 council meeting in which council members voted to discontinue lease negotiations with the VFW by a 5-0 vote.

MCHS seniors make school history in business-themed clubs

Adam Foster, a Moffat County High School senior, is the front man. “The way that I perceive it is he goes in for the introduction,” said Thomas McCoy, a fellow MCHS senior and Foster’s partner in Distributive Education Clubs of America and Future Business Leaders of America. McCoy is more comfortable behind the scenes. He comes in with a softer tact and fills in the gaps, he said. Together, they make a winning combination at DECA and FBLA competitions.
