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.
As most moms will tell you, there is nothing that is quite so special as the pregnancy with and birth of your first child. The following pregnancies and births are special and usually each is different, but the first is just that ... the first. My first was 22 years ago at the end of this week. It amazes me that when I think about it, it is like it was just yesterday.
I have been watching the weather during the news, and the storms are an awesome sight to behold. This spring will be another thing altogether with this heavy snow base melting, but hopefully, there won’t be any floods.
After three months of evaluating, dissecting and writing about the top concerns and accolades in Craig and Moffat County, the Craig Daily Press’ editorial board has fulfilled its three-month commitment and a new board is being formed.
Nearly 140 people attended one of our three meetings sponsored by the Area Agency on Aging! These meetings were held at Craig’s beautiful new Colorado Northwest Community College Nov. 18, Sat. Jan.18 and in the evening Jan. 20. Way back in June 2013, the council (at the time Mary Morris was on the AAA board) decided that Craig needed a senior center. Every other town had one, why not Craig? So we began planning a summit to find out what the seniors of Craig wanted. We were ecstatic over the public’s response to our idea.
I would like to respond to a couple of letters written to the editor in the Feb. 12 edition of the Craig Daily Press.
