- Nichols and Ashbrook Engagement
This homecoming week, the people of Craig will be treated to a special homecoming beyond the normal festivities. The 1967 Moffat County High School football team, the most successful team in the school’s history, will be hosted at events and honored before the Oct. 5 homecoming football game vs. Summit. The team was composed of a large group of outstanding senior athletes. The Bulldogs had four players selected to the all-state team and 11 on the all-conference team. The ’67 Bulldogs are a singular entity in Moffat County football. Their playoff run was the longest in school history when it happened, and they remain the only team to play for a state championship to this day.
Sometimes it is in the best interest of voters to cross party lines when a special candidate clearly represents the needs and concerns of those voters. For the first time in a long time we are fortunate here in Moffat County to have one our own running for a seat in the state legislature. The winner of the race for HD57 will be decided in November, and the best candidate for the job is a Moffat County resident. That candidate is Jo Ann Baxter. Jo Ann has lived in Craig for 38 years. She taught school in Moffat County for 29 of those years while raising three children, serving in a variety of local leadership roles, and obtaining a PHD.
