Israeli Prime Minister

Inviting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to address the Congress of the United States appeared to be a brilliant, political move.

Thank you

We would like to take this opporutunity to send out a big thank you to Michael Swaro and Colorado Parks & Wildlife.

Bravo Stephanie Pearce

A tip of the hat to Daily Press writer Stephanie Pearce, she gets it. I will point out, whether her columns were originally meant to be about Common Core or not, they certainly do apply to it.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Imitation Game’ a precise, poignant drama

Even when a person makes a tremendous change for the better in the world, it doesn’t take much for their legacy to be tarnished or even forgotten completely. Though it can’t change some of its unfortunate circumstances, “The Imitation Game” labors to get its hero his due.

Mike Littwin: Gun Day Monday at the Capitol, loopy but calm

It was Gun Day Monday at the state legislature, where seven gun bills — all proposed by Republicans — were up for debate. The testimony either broke your heart or made your head pound and, either way, had to make you wonder how we ever got to this place.

Janet Sheridan: Memories of Valentine’s Day

I collect antique valentines. My interest in collecting old valentines no doubt flows from my happy memories of school valentine parties.

Eric Deering: Grouse concerns

Ever since the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service listed the Gunnison Sage-Grouse as threatened last fall, I am increasingly concerned that a listing of the Greater Sage-Grouse might be next.

Joe Tonso: Thank you!

Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club would like to thank our community for their support during our Snow Cat Groomer accident. We are now grooming and getting our trails back in condition.

J. Armetta: Don’t poop in my yard

This morning while I was drinking my coffee, I happened to look out my kitchen windows and saw a man and his large black dog walking by on the street.

Lance Scranton: Enough already!

He dropped back and put the ball in the air and the intangibles took over. The firestorm of criticism that ensued made every critic and armchair coach an expert on what “should” have happened. Few remember the undrafted rookie who made the play of the year down on the one yard line, an improbable interception with time expiring, stopping the opponent’s touchdown that would ensure victory with just seconds left during the most watched Super Bowl in history.

Prather’s Pick: Surviving a blizzard

This week’s book is timely, indeed, considering all of the media coverage about the recent blizzards in the eastern part of our country. “Blizzard” is a beautifully-illustrated (Caldecott Honor) book, written by John Rocco. The story is based on his own experience with a blizzard when he was 10 years old.

Senior Spotlight: Memories of my hometown

As I sat in my recliner watching the weather channel, I thought about the nice weather we are having and how different it was from the storms in the eastern United States. States like New York are going through a rough time causing a real hardship for those living there. I can relate to those storms, remembering how it was back in the good old days when Colorado lived up to its reputation for cold and snow.

Stephanie Pearce: A little wool goes a long way


January has been a month of non-stop going in our household. If you had told me even a year ago that my daughter would be achieving all that she is right now, I would have laughed in your face. She is a normal teenager but is accomplishing so much, not only for herself, but for our community. If she can do all of these things, I hope that she is an inspiration to motivate all of our young people to think out of the box, step out of their comfort zone and do something amazing.

Lois Stoffle: Help Craig concerts

The Craig Concert Association is looking for a few folks to join our board. At our meeting of Jan. 18, we noted that we had two vacancies.

G. Ward Mansfield: Recognizing Dr. King

I wonder if Jan. 19 had come and gone with uninterrupted postal service, would a large number of our local population even have realized it was a holiday recognizing Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.? I think that as human beings and Americans of the 21st century, we need to ask ourselves that question and more.
