It wasn't the result they wanted, but Craig Daily Press sports writer was impressed with Moffat County's wrestlers anyway.
In 1977, in anticipation of winter to come, Bob and Val Conover, of Craig, took over management of the MYCKI Center, which hosted an indoor rink skating.
As I type this week’s column, I’m watching the snow as it comes down sideways. It’s a blizzard. So I’m thinking about baking a hot casserole for supper. This week’s column features two casseroles, both of which I’ve cooked up several times.
The other day, I passed the guy with the “Tree Huggers Suck” sticker on the windshield of his beat-up pickup. The first time I saw this truck was after a long contentious day when a professional conservationist feels like a lone voice in a wilderness study area and I was further discouraged. This time I just grinned as I know I’m not alone.
Two weeks ago, “Pipi’s Pasture” honored the 4-H/FFA members who competed in the 2014 Arizona Livestock Show. This week’s column honors the Moffat County 4-H/FFA members who exhibited at the 2014 National Western Stock Show.
The Craig Rotary Club would like to thank all of the community members and businesses who helped make our 2014 Diamonds and Spurs event one of the most successful events in recent years.
Last Monday morning, Presidents Day, I found myself thinking about the contentious muddle in which our nation currently is mired — I worried that we’ll never find our way out of it. This concern dampened the joy I usually find in breakfast, but I comforted myself by remembering that we survived the ‘60s.
Not every film about the subject of art is as fascinating as the art itself. If the man who painted “The Last Supper” were remembered solely for the misfire that was “The Da Vinci Code,” the Louvre certainly would have far fewer patrons gathered around his most famous works. Even so, the modern-day efforts to preserve the accomplishments of the past are worth looking at in a movie like “The Monuments Men.”
Singing valentines was such a special experience for Moffat County High School’s CenterStage this year.
My wife and I just received a wonderful Valentine’s Day present — a singing valentine!
We wish to thank everyone who brought food, made a phone call, stopped by with a kind word, sent a card, donated monies in Mom’s name or came to her funeral service.
What makes sports and activities so meaningful is how they allow kids to express their unique, individual talents, to contribute to a team and to have fun. But sometimes it isn’t so fun for parents, and I think I know why.
Readers may wonder what the letters “J” and “YA” — sometimes found on the outside spine of a book — are all about. Sally Beauchamp, children’s librarian at the Moffat County Library, told me that “J” (juvenile) and “YA” (young adult) mean the same thing, but the “J” designation is newer. These letters indicate that the books are intended for fifth through 12th grades. However, it depends on the vocabulary and content of the individual book as to the exact reading level.
Those wonderful folks from the Calvary Baptist Church were at it again! At what, you ask? Well, they were at Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab on Valentine’s Day, and they sure put on a party for the residents!
It’s time for Congress to act so that Social Security benefits finally can start to keep pace with the cost of living. The average monthly benefit for Social Security retirees in Moffat County is $1,222.
