Letter: TMH actions upset area family

Yesterday, our household received a letter from Jennifer Riley (Chief of Organizational Excellence at the Memorial Hospital) informing us that Dr. Phillips was leaving the community and that August 18th would be his last day. This letter was dated August 14th and postmarked August 16th (Dr. Phillips actual last day at TMH Medical Clinic).

Letter: VFW grateful for parade support

To all the citizens of Craig, I would like to Thank a big, big Thank You for all the support that was shown on the 4th of July. Also all the patriotism shown. It all made for a really nice 4th of July parade. The BBQ at Veterans Park was a big hit with 1,800 plus people served. I would also like to give a big Thank You to all whom took the time and effort to make the floats. I know it takes time and effort to make the floats. I know it takes a lot of work to build and there were many good floats.
