In the world of young-adult literature, some books only get less dynamic as they go. Although some series disappoint even when expectations are at their lowest, at least there’s one series that keeps “Catching Fire” after an auspicious introduction.
Until American folk hero John Henry gets his own feature film, there will be only one movie character renowned for his hammer. So swings the blunt instrument once again in “Thor: The Dark World.”
The Museum of Northwest Colorado is debuting its remodel, artifacts and a brand-new train diorama for Railroad Day on Thursday, which happens to be the 100th anniversary of when the railroad came to Craig. Community members can explore the museum’s new digs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, and the Craig Chamber of Commerce will host a mixer that day from 5 to 7 p.m.
Since its inception, Sin City has been a haven for people making bad decisions that, with any luck, won’t impact their real lives.

The smell of savory butter. The sound of hundreds of chitin-filled shells breaking. The sight of people enjoying a food they don’t get to eat very often. It can only mean one thing: Crabfest is here again. Crabfest 2013 is scheduled for Saturday night at the Boys & Girls Club of Craig. The Craig Chamber of Commerce’s annual fundraiser features a night of fun complete with the meat of the title crustacean as the main course.
Muhammad Ali had Joe Frazier. Chris Evert had Martina Navratilova. The team of cheerleaders from “Bring It On” had the other team of cheerleaders from “Bring It On.” A good rivalry can push athletes to their peak or leave them to crash and burn, a pair of conditions that's very applicable for the two sportsmen of “Rush” as well as describing the quality of the movie itself.
Craig movie showtimes for Oct. 4 through 10
