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. Born in 1913 in Kansas City, Missouri, Leon came to Moffat County with his parents when his father took up a homestead near Sunbeam. The oldest of nine children, Leon was always found himself around and in the midst of the action on the Strausborger ranch.
Grace likes to ride under the back seat of my pickup. Frankly, I think that's goofy. You'd think she would want to at least look out the windows. But there she was with three of my kids riding back from Vernal. About half way back from Vernal she became very agitated, forcing her way between legs and shopping bags toward the left back door. (Her preferred exit).
When I was 5 years old, my parents told me they were getting a divorce. At first, I thought it was a good thing, because they wouldn’t be arguing any more. Then, I wondered if it was my fault that they were arguing, because they didn’t agree on rules for me.
The majority of our community operates online, meaning their using the web for business, social media and to read news and information on various websites.
This thank you goes out to all of you wonderful, wonderful people who showed your love and support for my family as we said goodbye to the beautiful woman who loved me for the past 54 years.
We have bags of apples all over the kitchen, all from our own trees. Mostly I have been peeling and slicing the apples and cooking them in a saucepan. I sweeten the apples with sugar, add a little cinnamon, and thicken the juice with a little cornstarch. We eat them that way, with a little cream or whipped topping. It’s really like making a pie except without the crust.
The old barn on our family ranch at Morapos has stood there some 70 years. Sometimes I wonder, if walls could talk, what stories the barn would tell. Perhaps it would be of a crew of men stacking hay in the loft or of a cow with her head in a stanchion waiting to be milked. Or there might be stories of my sisters and brother playing in the loft or brushing our 4-H steers as they ate their grain in the barn’s stalls.
How will Craig's Donald Trump supporters react if the “Trump Train” gets derailed?
