According to the folks at Downtown Books in Craig, the Walt Longmire mystery series is popular — so popular that the books aren’t on the shelf very long. Written by Craig Johnson, the series is about eight books in all. The leading character is Wyoming Sheriff Walt Longmire. The books inspired the A&E television drama “Longmire.”
If you learned everything you know about roadrunners from the Warner Brothers cartoon, it may come as a surprise to you that the roadrunner, unlike the oddly ditzy character that exasperated Wile E. Coyote, is loyal to its mate.
I would like to sincerely thank the kind person (whether it was an employee or a shopper) that turned my purse into the customer service desk at City Market on Thursday.
As an outfitter and resident in Moffat county and Craig, I believe some things can stay just the way they are without change, while other bigger issues need to be addressed. And while everyone is not a hunter or has that interest, Craig and Moffat County have always been a hunting destination for thousands of sportsmen and women each year and for many decades.
Two things that never seem to come up in local discussions about economic development in Craig are business incentives and economic diversity.
We are in what I like to call the “hump" in March. It is the time of Mari Gras and St. Patrick’s’ Day, which although not a main holiday, has its place on the calendar.
I have a fortune from a fortune cookie taped to my computer. It reads, “follow the dream that keeps coming back. It’s your destiny.” I keep it there to remind me there is more to me than just the things I do to get through life. I keep myself motivated in finding that dream so that living this everyday life seems more a little more bearable.
People make all kinds of sandwiches. Years ago, when our boys were small, my husband Lyle mixed up mashed bananas and peanut butter and made sandwiches for them. I’ve heard of onion sandwiches, and our son Jamie puts potato chips in his bologna sandwiches.
The citizens of Meeker and Rio Blanco County have been informed by the board of county commissioners that there will be “public hearings” about the proposed design of the “justice center” which they propose to locate where the historic Meeker elementary school now stands.
The biggest reason I care so deeply about the elderly is because of what happened to my late grandmother during her almost six-month stay at two nursing homes — one in Santa Fe, N.M., and one in the Denver metro area.
The President’s science and technology advisor - Jan. 11, 2014. I cringe at how ludicrous global warming climatologists must feel these last two winters. Nature is pooping in their nest. Did he mean “extreme heat” instead of cold? Can they have it both ways? However, they shouldn’t be making excuses. They should be elated that winter seems to be coming back with a vengeance. But what if it continues? It puts them in the position of hoping for bad news. It’s called schenfreude.
This week, the monthly Moffat County 4-H Newsletter arrived in the mail. When I saw the Hamilton Busy Beavers 4-H Club mentioned with the 4-H Council, I was reminded of those years long ago when I was in 4-H. I belonged to the Hamilton Busy Beavers Club, and I don’t like to think about how many years ago it was!

A sure sign of spring in Craig is seeing the city’s street sweepers at work.
