Colorado You Got Talent will be holding auditions in Craig this weekend. The statewide talent competition will be at Victory Motors, 193 Commerce St., from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
Wyman Museum employees are hoping to have a key piece of the museum’s history returned to help complete the design of the remodeled trophy room: Clyde the elk's antlers.
Some people take these bets pretty seriously — who’s got a wager on how long it takes host Seth MacFarlane to break into the voice of Stewie Griffin? — and in case your pals have an inside line, here are some predictions and personal picks to help you fill out your Oscar ballot.
Dozens of Craig residents camp out for chance to see raunchy performance
It’s a tradition as old as the event itself. And every February for over three score and seven years, Craig residents have not only battled frigid overnight temperatures, but also sleep deprivation, temporary alcohol-induced blindness and the occasional tragic encounter with the opposite sex for a chance to acquire ticket number 001 for the annual Kiwanis Play.
Whether you believe a film like “Zero Dark Thirty” is authentic, you have to admire the boldness involved in recreating one of America’s most controversial ongoing sagas.
Parents could be able buy alcohol for their children at Colorado bars and restaurants if they were 18 and older but not 21 yet, under a proposal by a Republican lawmaker. Sen. Greg Brophy is introducing the bill for the legislative session that begins Wednesday. He says he thought of the proposal because he and his wife recently took their daughter to dinner to celebrate her 20th birthday, and she couldn't have a drink with them.
The best thing you can say about “Breaking Dawn — Part 2” is that it means the end of glitter-skinned heartthrobs, gawky staging and endless off-screen drama.
Filled with depth, good humor and life lessons, “Life of Pi” is consistently riveting as we follow an unlikely pair — a meek, young Indian man and a full-grown Bengal tiger — adrift at sea.
A golden jubilee for anything is worth celebrating, even if it’s not quite the high quality it used to be. With its protagonist so deeply ingrained in our minds, “Skyfall” shows itself to be a semicentennial event more than a movie all its own, though not a bad one, by any means.
Whether your preference is for a plastic firearm, a joystick and buttons, or a car constructed from cookies, this is the ideal film for anyone who’s ever loved video games.
Craig has lost a unique member of its community. The Wyman Living History Museum’s Clyde the elk died Saturday afternoon, leaving behind a legacy of friendliness to employees and visitors that lasted throughout his eight years there. The elk, born on the Wyman Elk ranch in 1994, came to the museum when it opened in 2004 and had been there to entertain visitors every day since. His draw was strong for anyone visiting the museum for the first time, but he was a favorite of children coming on field trips from the local schools.
If you haven't been among the millions of readers who put the "Fifty Shades of Gray" on the best sellers list, then the coming fall may be your time to snuggle up under a blanket and get a little "HOT". I am not only prescribing this read for women, but also for all you men out there. Now I know you men casually familiair with Fifty Shades are rolling your eyes and thinking I am crazy, but I am not, I assure you. I have been married for a long time and I know how easily couples can slip into a monotonous routine — how you would do almost anything to spark some of that passion and fire from when your relationship was fresh, exciting and new.
Some Hayden residents regret passing on casino in 1999
When members of the Northern Ute Indian Tribe arrived in Hayden in 1999 hoping to build a casino, they found a town that was expanding. In that year, schools in Hayden taught 100 more students than they did this year. The Routt County Fair welcomed a record crowd of 2,616 people to the grandstands. Developers were planning a new subdivision, and voters approved a tax hike to pay for a $698,000 library expansion. “We weren’t quite on the fat and happy hill, but we were on our way up to it,” Ray Mazzola said earlier this month about the economy he oversaw as mayor of Hayden from 1999 to 2001. “We were starting to get a couple more businesses into the community. We were much better off than we are now.”
Hayden casino group sets community meeting at Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion
A lot has been said in the local community forums since the Sleeping Giant Group first announced its proposal to build a casino near Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden. Some of the comments have been positive, others not so much. But it’s not the chatter one way or the other that has Steve Hofman a little concerned. Hofman, a Steamboat Springs resident and one of six partners of the Sleeping Giant Group, said Tuesday a thorough community discussion about the proposed casino was one of the partnership’s goals from the beginning.
Collin Stoddard, a Craig native and Christian singer/songwriter, began his performance Thursday night by asking for a show of hands of those in the audience. He wanted to know how many people had changed his diaper as an infant. “I bet there are less hands down that haven’t than have,” Stoddard joked. Stoddard performed a concert featuring songs from his new album, “Fight for Me,” at The Journey at First Baptist Church for an audience of about 100 people.
