Mary Jo Brown: Support Relay for Life and Moffat County fair

The motto my daughter Jane likes to go by is, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” In this day and age where everything seems to be new and improved it seems that the improvement isn’t always better.

Rene' Littlehawk: Love on 4 paws

I remember my first dog so vividly. I had been around my mom’s dog and my sister’s dog, but this one was mine. She was, of course, the most beautiful puppy ever imagined. She was a collie, just like I saw on TV, and of course, I called her Lassie.

John Ponikvar: Awesome fireworks

I would like to thank Kris Olsen, KC Hume and the rest of the Craig Fire/Rescue for putting on a truly spectacular fireworks display on the Fourth of July.

Lynn and Ella Curtis: Bad choice newspaper

After going through Monday’s (July 7, 2014) paper, we really question the Craig Daily Press’ opinion on the priority of importance of articles. Why would you put “Lawsuits looking to stop work at mines in three states” on page 11?

Mark Parchman: County commissioners

Recent events have made it prudent perhaps to consider replacing or adding to the signage that we currently have for the people that live here and those that travel through also.

Helen Baysinger: Thanks TMH

Once again, I want to thank the doctors at The Memorial Hospital and all of the nurses in the emergency department, and a special thank you goes to David Higgins. Thank you to all of the nurses, nurse aides, kitchen, housekeeping and lab.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Zucchini recipes

My garden is just pitiful this year. I planted seeds too late and left bedding plants inside too long, all because I was worried about frost.

From Pipi’s Pasture: It’s summer!

Summer! It’s what we yearned for back in January when the weather was cold and snowy and the roads were icy. It’s what we yearned for in May when it rained, snowed and frosted. Summer is finally here!

Faith Column: Helping in love

Our community is a wonderful place to live. The people are friendly and helpful; there are many, many churches to join for worship; and we have a diversity of helping agencies that aid our disadvantaged neighbors. People here are compassionate and caring — this is one of the many benefits of living in the Yampa Valley.

TMH Lab offers walk-in, direct-to-you lab services

Baxter Black: Sundays headed home

I have been a travelin’ man a good part of my life. Most of my speakin’ jobs are Friday and Saturday nights, so Sunday means I’m usually on the road and headed home.

Thinking About Health: Quiz — Will next year's insurance rates go up or down?

It’s now the silly season for insurance rates with government agencies, consulting groups and the media all speculating about next year’s premiums. Will your insurance premiums go up or down this fall? Never before have I seen such intense interest in insurance rates, which editors have usually considered a snoozer of a story.

Museum of Northwest Colorado: ‘Dinkys’ handled a big coal job

Coal production today in the Yampa Valley is carried out with oversized equipment that staggers the mind with its immensity. Colowyo Coal Company south of Craig has huge haul trucks that dwarf the drivers and carry tons of coal in a single load.

Wyman Living History Museum: Thank you

The Wyman Living History Museum would like to thank Brothers Custom Processing for generously donating all the meat for the barbecue to be held July 19 during the Cast and Blast and grand opening of the archery range.

Ron and Audrey Danner: Thanks, Fire/Rescue

Thank you for the quick response to our fire from Craig Fire/Rescue and the volunteers who saved our home June 20. We can replace the garage, barn and dog run but are grateful that we only are repairing our home.
