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.
On Feb. 7, two members of the Craig Rural Fire Department came to our facility (Sandrock Ridge Care and Rehab) and did a fire extinguisher class for our staff.
Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and what would the middle of February be without a few selections at the local bijou to provide people with a good date night? Whether you and your significant other are planning to step out on the town or snuggle up at home with a DVD, there are plentiful films to be enjoyed for whatever your liking, many of which have come out within the last year.
Legions of the Blue and Gray! Back on the road today. With visions of glory. For a lifetime to stay!
Small-town people are wonderful. I’ve lived in Craig for almost two years, and everyone I’ve met has made me feel very welcome. When I first moved here, I had trouble finding some places so I would ask for directions.
On Feb. 1, I attempted to do business with one of the downtown businesses. The sign on their door stated they would be open at 10 a.m. I got to the business a few minutes early, and was prepared to wait till 10 a.m.
“Bad Kitty Drawn to Trouble” is the 10th book in a series of “Bad Kitty” books by author and illustrator Nick Bruel. This new book and other Bad Kitty books can be found in the children’s room at the Moffat County Library. The author’s purpose in writing this book was to show kids how books are written. Included in the chapters is information about the elements of a story.
I donate blood every year because for all practical reasons — it’s easy and I get to eat some free food when I’m all done. What is interesting though, is how differently people react to giving.
Don’t discount your better half’s love for you because they don’t go out of their way to make grand gestures. Look for their steady, little acts of love that they do for you.
Use your words wisely, in kindness and with consideration for the person to whom you are speaking and don’t be afraid to let them know you care. Have a great Valentine’s Day and spread the kindness and goodwill it stands for.
Next week we’ll celebrate Valentine’s Day. Betty Ann Duzik, of Craig, called with her recipe for Valentine’s candy that she makes each year.
On Jan. 22, I had the good fortune to give a tour of the Bord Gulch Ranch, which I manage, to the most influential people out there when it comes to the future of sage grouse. I was honored to have the chance to share my “on-the-ground” conservation efforts.
Thank you, Tim Knez and his helper. We were on our way to the Veterinary Hospital in Steamboat Springs on the early morning of Jan. 16 with a very sick dog when our car broke down west of Milner. We were frantic, to say the least.
