In reference to your Letter to the Editor in the Saturday Morning Press on March 18: I hope your letter will be your last best effort to get pot or as you call it “cannabis” established in Craig. If the “Good Ol’ Boys Club” as you call them are for supporting a good healthy community for our Craig youth without dugs, then I and anyone with children have to vote against anyone you support.

Lisa Brown: Hospice Daffodils a huge success

Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual Hospice Daffodils fundraiser. We are grateful to the 60 volunteers in Routt and Moffat counties who gave their time (more than 200 hours) to help with this event.

Besides the time period in which it’s set, “Kong: Skull Island” bears a great deal in common with movies like “Apocalypse Now.” But, though what the quarry characters are after is about the same build as the man who played Walter Kurtz, he’s much less demanding, at least in terms of salary.

Lance Scranton: Great coaching

I grew up playing hockey in the winter and thought the entire world spent their time around an ice sheet during the cold winter months. But, a couple of years ago, my son decided he was going to try wrestling so we traded in the chilly stands of the ice rink for the milder bleachers in gymnasiums with wrestling mat covered floors.
