Times are tough, but times are tough all over, I thought, while speaking with one of our county commissioners this past week. I asked if there was any positive or inspiring news about our county in general. He stated that the commissioners are definitely going on the offensive this year and plan to do all they can to promote our county and the possibilities that exist in our expansive area.
This week’s book is written for young adults, but older readers will learn a lot from reading it, too. “Positive: Surviving My Bullies, Finding Hope, and Living to Change the World” is a memoir, written by Paige Rawl, with Ali Benjamin. The foreward to the book was written by Jay Asher.
These are changing times we live in and many ways more challenging than days gone by. We have resources available allowing us to live more comfortably and helping to see what is ahead.
This is my last in a series on the American Dream. Just to be clear, I had titled the columns “The American Dream” and the editorial staff added the examining Common Core to the column.

As the Craig Chamber of Commerce puts it, “There is too something to do in Craig!” It’s true — all you have to do is look for things to do, and you’ll find that our community boasts a number of activities both in and outside of Craig’s city limits.
I hope that you’re all enjoying Mary Burnett’s “Taco Soup” (Jan. 10 column). Mary called to tell me that the person who makes the soup can choose the amount of olives to put in the soup — even none if the person so desires. Thanks again for the recipe, Mary.
Congratulations go to the exhibitors who attended the Arizona Livestock Show in December and the National Western Stock Show in Denver. “From Pipi’s Pasture” will feature the exhibitors in a upcoming column. Right now some of the 4-H and FFA members are still competing in Denver.
I am writing this letter to express how appalled I am at the Craig Daily Press’ policy of charging to print obituaries.
I want to thank Dan and Mary Pat for the article on my father, W.H. “Bill” Terrill, that was in the Saturday Morning Press on Dec. 13.
Winnie the Pooh had his honey, but the star of “Paddington” is addicted to a different substance in his cinematic escapades. Even so, the bear of very little brains isn’t the only one who can give us a sweet story.
My friend’s father railed against pedal pushers. My grandmother questioned the attire of Elvis Presley but seemed to enjoy his hips. A college dorm mother told me a true lady would never appear in public without hose, and my first principal sent a teacher home when she showed up at work in a pantsuit.
We recently experienced some furnace problems, and a local business was here to assist. Thank you Shepherd and Sons! Great Service! I would highly recommend them for your furnace needs! Thanks again.
