My pretty friend Linda tucked a strand of blonde hair behind her ear and said, “There are too many options; I can’t make myself commit.” She wasn’t talking about choosing an ideal mate, finding her dream home or planning the perfect vacation. She was buying a vacuum. And I understood her frustration.
Besides the time period in which it’s set, “Kong: Skull Island” bears a great deal in common with movies like “Apocalypse Now.” But, though what the quarry characters are after is about the same build as the man who played Walter Kurtz, he’s much less demanding, at least in terms of salary.
While the Affordable Care Act aka "Obamacare" has had problems with high premiums and high deductibles, I would propose we fix it, not repeal and replace it.
I know that readers of Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing” series of books will be happy to learn that his newest book is out, and you can find it at the Craig branch of the Moffat County Libraries.
I grew up playing hockey in the winter and thought the entire world spent their time around an ice sheet during the cold winter months. But, a couple of years ago, my son decided he was going to try wrestling so we traded in the chilly stands of the ice rink for the milder bleachers in gymnasiums with wrestling mat covered floors.
As parents, we don’t want our children to ever feel badly, so we do everything we can to mitigate the situation.
I am writing in response to Mr. Kjera’s letter that was published on Friday, March 17 to clarify some information. I serve as the chairperson for the Craig Sales Tax Committee and have spent hours gathering information regarding both the sales tax and the use tax to provide the information to voters so they can make an informed decision when casting their ballots.
At some point in the next year, Congress will consider legislation to address the needs of America’s infrastructure. In the Natural Resources Committee, we will be considering the ways that this infrastructure bill could help federal land management agencies restore access to public lands and support sound management practices.
This year, the City of Craig is asking voters to approve Referred Measure 1A. If approved, this measure would increase the local sales tax by 1.25 percent on the sales of all tangible personal property and services. The measure would also impose a 3.5 percent use tax on all motor vehicles that are purchased outside of the city limits. There are many questions and opinions surrounding both of the proposed tax increases. The intent of this article is to inform the voter about the difference between use and sales tax. It is up to the voter to determine whether or not the tax increases are necessary or warranted for local community improvements.
The city of Craig says it’s hurting so badly financially that it needs voters to pass a sales tax and use tax to help bolster its bottom line.
Not only is John Ponikvar a kind and caring person, but he will listen to the citizens, even if he opposes what they believe, because in his mind he works for the people of Craig, and I have seen this first hand.
Joe’s concern and deep commitment to our community shows in his everyday life, job and volunteerism. All you have to do is talk with him and you can feel his love and dedication of community.
We are writing this letter in support of Joe Bird for mayor. We are voting for Joe because he is dedicated, involved and committed to helping this community move forward.
The purpose of this letter is to ask for the community’s help in contacting State Sen. Randy Baumgardner and State Rep. Bob Rankin. I would like their support in finding an alternative solution to Governor Hickenlooper’s proposed reduction in something called the hospital “provider fee.” If this reduction is enacted, it will be catastrophic for many rural hospitals across Colorado, including The Memorial Hospital.
Whenever I think about preparing an Easter dinner, I think of strawberries. Spring and strawberries just seem to go together. I usually bake a yellow cake or buy some little cakes and serve them with sugared strawberries and whipped topping. That’s our Easter dinner dessert.
