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.

Wherever you went in town during Halloween, there was no shortage of children in costume around to bring a smile to your face. As early as 3 or 4 p.m., kids and their parents were surrounding the sidewalks of the downtown businesses on Yampa Avenue and Victory Way in their pursuit of Milky Ways, Tootsie Pops, Twizzlers and all other forms of sugary, tooth-rotting goodness that find their way into your bag, bucket or pillowcase upon utterance of those magic words: “Trick or treat!”
Right now, the northeast corner of the field between Craig Middle School and Sandrock Elementary School looks no different than the rest of the parcel of land. Come next year, it could be entirely different if two students have anything to say about it. CMS seventh-graders Caroline Riley and Lacey Wiseman have been working to get an outdoor volleyball net installed on the school’s property.
Craig will be jam packed with trick-or-treating hotspots and fun events to attend this year as downtown businesses do their annual Trick-or-Treat Street on Yampa Avenue and the Craig Christian Church hosts its Fun Fest for the 27th year in a row. So put on your best Halloween costume and enjoy the spooky fun.
