John Pogline: No pot in Craig!

According to CDOT statistics, as reported in the Monday, May 23, 2016 Craig Daily Press, “nearly 55 percent of marijuana users drove high an average of seven days per month. And according to the Colorado State Patrol, so far this year, nearly one out of every five DUI’s in Colorado involves marijuana.”

Paul James: Legalize retail pot in Craig

The only effect that banning recreational cannabis in Craig has, is that of helping to diminish our already disparaged economy. Help us to urge our local politicians to make the right choice!

Baxter Black: Wanted: Cowboy

A reporter asked me awhile back if I was a cowboy. I said "no." That name is reserved for them that make their livin’ punchin’ cows.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Blubarb Pie

We have planted most of our garden, and so far one row of onions is up. As I was checking out the garden I noticed that some our young rhubarb plants are about ready. What a great time for Mary Burnett, of Craig, to send me a recipe for “Blubarb Pie” (Blueberry Rhubarb). There may be three cups of rhubarb from our plants to make Mary’s pie!

I look forward to this time of year because I can start working in the garden. Our garden is enclosed in a fenced yard (to keep out the deer) right next to Pipi’s Pasture.

Janet Sheridan: Reflections on Memorial Day

On May 30, small flags will be planted; and those who remember will quietly gather in cemeteries across our land. Taps will soar, echo and fade. The names of men and women who died serving our country during times of war will be read, and crowds either large and small, but always attentive, will listen with gratitude to the roll call of our honored dead.

Prather’s Pick: A rusty but trusty tractor

This year there has been a lot of flooding in our country, and that’s what I thought about when I found “Farmer John’s Tractor,” a children’s picture book.

Lance Scranton: Congrats seniors — expect great things!

It’s that time again when our best and brightest get ready to enter the world after 12 or 13 years of public education. So often test scores are what we base much of our success on when describing the effectiveness of our schools. Of course, scores are important and worthy of discussion and concern because various snapshots of student learning do help us determine how best to serve their intellectual needs.

Our View: Various organizations have fun summer activities

In rural communities, it’s easy to say, “I’m bored.” It’s a phrase parents often hear from children, especially during the summer months. Yet sometimes, all it takes is a moment to step outside of such thinking and research the offerings in Northwest Colorado and beyond.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Making Swiss Steak

This week I was thinking about how long it has been since I’ve made Swiss Steak. My husband Lyle experimented with making Swiss Steak years ago, and I have used his recipe for years — but not lately.
