Over a Cup of Coffee: An April Fool’s surprise

April Fool’s Day is coming up. So is Easter. This week’s column has a surprise that you can serve your family for April Fool’s Day, and it has another chocolate cake for Easter. Both recipes are from “1000 Recipe Cook Book” (1951), a cookbook that an elderly friend gave me about 35 years ago.

From Pipi's Pasture: Easter Memories

When I think about this year’s upcoming Easter holiday, I can’t help but marvel at how quickly the years have passed. Our sons grew up a while ago, and now our grandchildren have grown up, too. So, I doubt that we will have an Easter egg hunt at Pipi’s Pasture this year, but there have been lots of them out here in years past and oh, what memories we have!

Baxter Black: Hello, my name is Mud

January 1980 is a month I’ll never forget. It all started out about January the 7th. The previous spring I had a big hand in selecting the bulls we were gonna use on Albert and Louie’s heifers.

Jennifer Riley: Vote Jones for mayor

It is my pleasure to write a letter of support for Don Jones in his upcoming bid for mayor of Craig. I’ve known Don for most of my life, but I didn’t get to know Don really well until I was elected to city council in 2009, when Don was serving as mayor.

Doyle O’Neil: Vote Beck for mayor

After carefully reviewing the running candidates for mayor and speaking with a few local hoteliers, the Hampton Inn & Suites is supportive for Ray Beck as the next mayor of Craig.

Mike Littwin: Ted Cruz for president, because he seems just like a Republican primary voter

As Ted Cruz took the stage at Liberty University to announce that he's running for president as the One True Conservative, it suddenly occurred to me that he actually has a chance to pull it off.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Insurgent’ a slightly enhanced sequel

“The Divergent Series: Insurgent” may not go in an entirely new direction, but as a bridge between two other movies, at least it holds up even with the shaky foundation with which it started.

Lance Scranton: Gearing up for election season

The election season is in full swing and the candidates are starting to make their run for the biggest prize American politics has to offer — commercial spots on television, radio and social media that bash the other candidate instead of describing how our country will be better for electing them to office.

Prather’s Pick: Another Kennedy biography and more…

There are two books in this week’s column, a biography and a book of outdoor activities for families. First of all, last week’s column was a review of “The Good Son: JFK Jr. and the Mother He Loved” by Christopher Andersen. I didn’t have room in the column for yet another biography, this one about Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.

Stephanie Pearce: Springtime brings brightness out of the dark

Spring is here. Finally. A season of change. A season of growth. A season of moving forward. While we all know spring still brings dark, snowy days once in a while, we have those green blades of grass that we’ll see soon.

Senior Spotlight: Enjoying holidays with loved ones

In my new room the bed is next to a window that faces east which, much to my delight, resulted in my waking up to a beautiful sunrise. The sky presented a panorama of various shades of peach and pink, which mixed with cloudy white and blue thrown in to hold it all together. The blue of the sky changed color, deepening as the day became more apparent, resulting in a glorious day.

Luke and Michelle Tucker: Vote for Derek Duran

Albert Einstein said, “We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” Our community is facing some extremely difficult economic hurdles.

The first “YES” marked on my ballot in the upcoming Craig City Council election will be in support of Kent Nielson with no hesitation at all.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Chocolate Easter Cake

Easter is just two weeks away — can you believe it? The shelves in the stores are loaded with delicious Easter candies, mostly chocolate. It’s a challenge to push a cart down the candy aisle without loading it up with goodies. All of the thoughts about chocolate have made me think about a menu for Easter.
