Moffat County man named Peabody Energy Leader in Education
Tuesday morning started out a little bit confusing for Craig resident Bill Ronis. As the main teacher at Maybell School, he rarely sees people come through his parking lot, but that day he saw several, all of whom seemed to have odd reasons for being there. When he started to see folks he saw more regularly descend on the school, his suspicions that something was up were confirmed, with the results being much more pleasant than he had expected earlier in the day.

College vice president to leave Craig in December
Nearly two decades ago, Gene Bilodeau and his family were new to the city of Craig. He had just accepted a position with Colorado Northwestern Community College, moving from a job with Casper (Wyo.) College. Back then, CNCC’s main building on the Craig campus was still the facility known as the Bell Tower and the husband and father of two was looking to help the college expand while integrating himself and his family into the community. Now, with the school thriving and his kids grown, he’s looking to start the next chapter of his life, and he may have found it in a whole different state.

Seventh grade won two, eighth grade lost to the Rams
The Bulldogs and Rams squared off in Craig Tuesday.
I wish every sports season finished with players hoisting the championship trophy, knowing the very last contest proved they were the very best team for that brief but lasting moment in history. I was part of a National Championship football team over 30 years ago, and I still remember the feeling when the clock counted down to zero and we cheered knowing that for this time, in this place, for this moment, we would be recognized as the very best.
Once you experience a small part of something, you’re more likely to want more. That’s what the administration of Colorado Northwestern Community College would like to see happen with people considering entering its doors.
