Nurse contracted by TMH in Craig arrested for theft

An independent contractor working at The Memorial Hospital in Craig has posted bond following his arrest for allegedly stealing prescription drugs from the hospital. A Craig Police Department investigation into Richard Timothy Dickerson, 37, of Hutchinson, Kan., is ongoing. Additional charges could be filed pending the outcome of the probe, Sgt. John Forgay said. “We’ve got some other things we need to look at real seriously,” Forgay said. “Part of that is what we had at the time was simply a misdemeanor crime. We’re following up with an investigation and there’s a good chance we will be charging further crimes. “Those things I can’t get into at this time because of the investigation.”

MCHS play moving forward in spite of tragedy

Heather Dahlberg, a Moffat County High School teacher, lost three relatives in a plane crash Wednesday who were en route to Craig to watch a school play she had been directing. The play continued as planned at the request of Dahlberg and her theater students, MCHS Principal Thom Schnellinger said. “The kids determined that … in the tradition of any theater, the show must go on,” Schnellinger said. He lauded the student actors’ wishes to continue with the production, “Rehearsal for Murder,” a 1930s-era mystery.
