The Steamboat Teen Council is a group of teens in the Yampa Valley who work together to create a community in which teens have a voice in social, political, and environmental issues.
Last Tuesday, Oct. 11, we were honored to join the staff of the Rio Blanco Water Conservancy District and Konnie Billgren, the executive director of the Rangely Chamber of Commerce for a face-to-face meeting to discuss the conservancy district’s proposed water storage project on the White River at Wolf Creek.
David Novak had it made in the shade as the owner and operator of a flight school in the Seattle area. He also served as a contracts manager for Boeing Defense & Space and as regional manager for a telecommunications company. But, the high-rolling lifestyle came to a crashing halt — quite literally — when David staged a small aircraft accident in an attempt to fraudulently obtain insurance money.
Last month one of my columns didn’t get printed — it happens sometimes. Anyway, I haven’t taken time to go through all of my flash drives to find out which one it was. I think it was a column featuring one of Geraldine Coleman’s recipes, I just don’t know which one. Also in the column was a recipe for pumpkin cookies. Since then I have had a request for a pumpkin cookie recipe, with spices. So this column includes both the cookie recipe and a recipe for a dip that you might just use at a Halloween party.
Lately the evenings here at Pipi’s Pasture have reminded me of Halloweens past. It’s the full moon that we can see through the naked branches of the poplar trees that grow along the yard fence. It’s the scattered dark clouds that make the bright sky seem a little eerie — like Halloween.
The staff and PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) of Sunset Elementary would like to thank the community of Craig for helping support our Annual Community Fall Festival!
You may have heard some discussion about the phrase Use It or Lose It lately. First, about how it is a guiding principle when using water under Colorado’s prior appropriation system. Then, more recently, about how it can be a misleading cliché.
Forty-five percent of those polled between the ages of 16 and 20 years old said they would vote for a socialist, while 20 percent said they could vote for a communist. Maybe that explains the Che Guevara T-shirts so many of them like to wear.
I suggest voting not based on a candidate’s personal morale in this election, but on his or her policies and on facts rather than allegations. Most importantly, please be sure to make an informed decision.
If we pay attention, life teaches us useful lessons: Refuse to cross a raging mountain stream on a fallen log when your hiking companions who claim it’s safe are standing beside you. Never befriend a barking dog or a growling librarian; and boycott turtlenecks so tight that pulling them off hurls your earrings, hearing aids and equanimity into space.
I am writing to clarify the position of Northwest Rocky Mountain CASA in response to the online article published by the Craig Daily Press on Oct. 18.
Pumpkins! They come in all sizes, are brightly colored, and they’re fun to carve. That means removing all the pulp and seeds. Did you ever wonder how many seeds are in a pumpkin? Does a large pumpkin have more seeds than a small one? That’s just what Mr. Tiffin’s first grade class is about to find out.
Locally, our city and county appear to be getting their minds wrapped around a coordinated effort to help build economic opportunities in Craig and Moffat County. Fortunately, voters have made it possible for various entities to come together and have the means necessary to determine a best way forward. Potential opportunities are being discussed and we should soon see concrete action that will directly benefit our local community and county.
Homecoming is a special time of year that brings the community together while watching our high school athletes in one of the most spectated games of the season. It’s a time when school pride and team spirit shine through.
Leon Strausborger lived a classic, rollicking, rough and tumble Moffat County life.

The oldest of nine children, Leon was always found himself around and in the midst of the action on the Strausborger ranch.
