Cheryl Arnett: Support our district, school board

I am thankful for this wonderful community, my home for over 40 years, the local schools where I worked for nearly 30 years, and the generous people in public positions keeping everything working! I, like the editorial board of the CDP, hope our community will take a stand and rally behind our school district. I’m not certain a mill levy override will solve the problems our school district faces, but if so, I would support it.

Karen Rohnke: School board has tough decisions to make

I teach Physical Education at East Elementary, and before that, I taught core classroom subjects for many years. I have listened to many people, both those in our schools and from the community about what to do with our school budget situation. I have heard what the stakeholders want, what staff feels is important, and the requests of the IBS team and administrators. Everyone has a different opinion based on what they want to see our school board decide for our future. Therein lies the problem.

HRC Column: Join Freedom Hooves for Tuesday Night Training

Hello All! Cisco the therapy horse here with a happy spring greeting from the herd at Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding of Northwest Colorado. There is excitement in the air out at the barn as the snow melts and the mud begins to dry. We aren’t just hanging around the feeders eating hay anymore — there is green grass to chase about the pasture. We are seeing familiar faces as our exercise team starts coming out to check in with us and get us back into shape for the summer ahead. There is a good feeling about this year amongst this seasoned herd. We are all excited to have jobs again after a long, cold winter.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Baked pasta casserole

I found this week’s recipe on the back of a 16-ounce box of Kroger penne pasta. I cut the recipe in half to make it more “manageable” for two people, so we don’t have so many leftovers. I’ll make this recipe again, and when my family comes, I’ll make the entire recipe, maybe even more.

From Pipi's Pasture: April 2016

I was recently visiting with someone who hasn’t lived in Craig very long. When I mentioned that a big storm — according to today’s forecast — is headed our way, possibly bringing snow, she made a face. I know that she was thinking, “But it’s April!”

Mike Littwin: What Colorado’s GOP chaos means for the RNC

Whatever else you’re tempted to say about the bizarro Colorado GOP convention — and people are still trying to explain Darryl Glenn’s shocking Senate win — you have to admit that it has done the country a great favor.

Janet Sheridan: Fashion sense

Men have fewer fashion crises and quandaries than women. To be considered well dressed, a man buys a limited number of items: shirts, jackets, pants, underwear, shoes, socks, belts and a tie or two.

The Bock’s Office: ‘The Boss’ is business as usual

Recent movies like “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Big Short” have shown us how insane corporate antics can be, primarily from a male perspective. With “The Boss,” we see the ladies’ take on the business world through a highly progressive topic — baked goods.

Prather's Pick: The library dragon returns

Even though this picture book is intended for children, there’s a message for all ages — perhaps more than one message. “Return of the Library Dragon” was written by Carmen Agra Deedy and illustrated by Michael P. White. It is based on “The Library Dragon,” also written by Deedy.

Lance Scranton: Where is my liberty?

I was once your greatest asset and you used me to your benefit. But now you demonize me. Is it because of where I am from? Are your white bladed towers and flat-paneled monstrosities that destroy the natural landscape more attractive and beneficial than I? Together, we were looked upon all over the world with envy; but now you vilify me and have unfairly characterized me as dangerous. Today, I help many countries build economic wealth and freedom but you have determined that I am dirty and disgusting.
