The drama and myths of the “Old West,” as we think of it today, began in part due to the flamboyant showmanship of a westerner himself, Buffalo Bill Cody.
I’ve had a wide variety of pets. Dogs, cats, horses and even the occasional snake. I recently welcomed a new friend and a whole new experience to my little family.
School will be starting in a little over a week, and people are wondering, “Where did the summer go?” The rush is on to buy school clothes and back-to-school supplies and to perhaps do some of the things that were planned for summer but didn’t get done.
When someone tells me they grew up on a dairy farm I say, “You have paid your dues, my son.”
As school starts today. the ice cream lady will stop the daily routes. She will drive around town in the afternoons and be at Wyman Living History Museum on Sept. 13 for Sheep Wagon Days.
St. Michaels Community Kitchen would like to send a big thank you to our community of Craig for so generously donating canned goods and money to our community kitchen during the balloon fest this past weekend.
When you’re talking about a force of nature with unimaginable power that leaves behind only destruction, the first thing that comes to mind is probably the Kardashian family.

As we begin dropping bombs in Iraq once again, the one thing we don't ask ourselves is this: What could go wrong? Where to begin?
For the past two weekends I have been able to enjoy some of Craig’s finest community happenings. I assisted the Craig Concert Association committee with their booth at both the balloon festival and the Moffat County Fair.
