Joe and Laura Schmidt
: Friendly and hospitable

We have had the wonderful opportunity to visit your town for the past two days. Such pride and friendliness in a town in this day and age seems rare. First we stayed at the KOA run by the Price’s. They were such hospitable folks wanting us to take in everything Craig had to offer.

Prather's Pick: A new cookbook

This past weekend I read a cookbook — I actually read it, not just looked through the recipes. There’s interesting information in the book for reading, and I enjoyed it a lot. I found the cookbook with new books at the Craig Moffat County Library. “Back in the Day Bakery: Made with Love” was written by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day. The book is published by Artisan, a division of Workman Publishing Company, Inc. The authors have previously published “The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook.”

Senior Spotlight: Saying goodbye to my column

Having the position of Moffat County Seniors Activity Director gave me opportunity to meet people and know what was happening in Craig and surrounding areas. My columns were mainly about what was going on and who was participating in the events, also local family events and notices, just a basic who’s doing what or who is going where. Since the town was smaller it seemed like everyone knew everyone or had heard of them and local news held a distinct interest to the readers.
