We are seeking the community’s help in locating a witness or the person responsible for a hit-and-run on a parked blue 2013 Subaru Forester between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Friday in the parking area between Pizza Hut and McDonald’s.
Sarah Zorn has a very “interesting” grandmother. Known as the family as “Z,” this 63-year-old granny can make an adventure out of most anything — like shopping for pencils, planning a diet (sometimes just one color of food each day of the week) or reading the fortunes in fortune cookies.
Thank you to the kind and generous person who paid for a meal for my family and I. Your kindness brought tears to my eyes. There truly still are good people in this world.
I strongly urge Moffat County residents to attend and participate in our open forum with Gov. John Hickenlooper. We need to send a strong message back to the state capitol that we feel disenfranchised by urban lawmakers.
We’ll celebrate Thanksgiving this coming week, so cooks everywhere have been searching for their family favorite recipes.
The recent speaker provided by the Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots on the subject of Common Core, a very important issue regarding the education of our children, was lacking participation by a very important group: our educators.
It was an honor and a privilege to serve on the Moffat County School Board as the District 7 representative. I hope to continue to volunteer to support this community in any way I can. I have served on other boards in the past, and I know that this is a great community with a lot of good hard working citizens. I wish to thank all of the people who voted for me in this past election!
The $1 billion tax increase to enable Colorado Senate Bill 213, a major change to school financing, was defeated by a 65 percent to 35 percent vote. The voters of Colorado have voted against a tax increase once again. But where does that leave Colorado’s need for reform of its government-run schools? The voters and the state Legislature are being forced to think again.
A group of small businesses are encouraging everyone with a business to attend Gov. John Hickenlooper’s town forum in Craig. It will be held at 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday at Colorado Northwestern Community College, 2801 W. Ninth St., Room 175. Let’s fill that room so full that they have to move the agenda out of the room and all the way down the hall.
Until American folk hero John Henry gets his own feature film, there will be only one movie character renowned for his hammer. So swings the blunt instrument once again in “Thor: The Dark World.”
One thing some of us tend to take for granted is our ability to see the many colors of the world. I am particularly fond of pastel colors, however, I tend to associate different colors with different feelings. Light blue represents serenity, light green is peaceful, soft yellow is warmth and tan is a warm homey feeling.
Experiencing a death can be overwhelming for anyone, but it especially is difficult for youths, and the first step of support is for the rest of us to become more aware of what these kids are going through.
The holidays are nearly here, so everybody’s talking about food. This week, I had requests for two cookie recipes: peanut butter and oatmeal raisin.
On Nov. 13, 4-H members, their families and leaders looked back on the many accomplishments of the 2013 program year. The annual 4-H Achievement Night was held at the Moffat County Fairgrounds Pavilion. This week’s “From Pipi’s Pasture” salutes the 4-H members and leaders.
The whistle of the first passenger train echoed across Craig’s little river valley on the snowy morning of Friday, Nov. 21, 1913. Excitement must have been contagious as the entire population spilled out of doors to meet that first train. A multitude of events were planned for the celebration and school was cancelled that day, and not just in Craig. Hayden also closed its school doors so that the teachers and children could ride the first train to their neighboring community.
