Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots: Bennet wrong about the Export-Import Bank

Most Americans probably have no idea what the Export-Import Bank even is, much less why it’s in the news right now. Yet it’s becoming the latest front in the fight to trim federal government.

Baxter Black: Hurricane Charlotte

Every now and then a feller has a weekend that is hard to forget. I had one years ago on a beautiful ranch in southern California.

From Pipi's Pasture: School memories

This week we have been moving cattle from Pipi’s Pasture to summer pasture, and along the way we pass the Morapos School. As we pass by the school building, I think about those school days of long ago. As I wrote in last week’s column, I have a hard time remembering all of the teachers and the kids that went to school there by years. However, I do remember some things about our school days.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Mom’s recipes

My sisters, Charlotte Allum and Darlene Blackford, and I have been working on a cookbook of our mother’s recipes. I think that these two recipes lend themselves to summer cooking.

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank Northwest Storage, Clarion 
Inn and the Craig Daily Press for all their help and support.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Aloha’ a low point for Cameron Crowe

The new movie “Aloha” may have the most appropriate title of the summer. Within minutes of saying “hello” to the film with a name that has two meanings, you’ll want to say “goodbye.”

Mike Littwin: GOP needs another Gardner; Coffman wasn't it

This is the situation in which the Colorado GOP finds itself: They have no more Cory Gardners to come to the rescue.

Shannan Koucherik: Pearce’s great column

I usually enjoy Stephanie Pearce’s column, but this week’s entry really hit home. The dog she and her family visited was Kandu, who with his owner Ken Rogers, is part of a seasoned Heeling Friends therapy team working in hospitals, nursing homes, classrooms and other places where pets can bring peace and comfort to hurting people.

Phyllis Barainca: Offensive cartoon

What makes a power hungry, lying, cheating, money grubber like Hillary Clinton think she is qualified to be the president?

Andy Bockelman: A year in the life of a Moffat County sports reporter

The last nine months have been a whirlwind, and it looks like the cycle will start up once again before too long, but before we get back into the eye of the storm, I wanted to share my thoughts about what it’s been like covering a full school year of athletics at Moffat County High School.

Sen. Michael Bennet: Reauthorizing the Export-Import Bank

As globalization transforms our economy, many Colorado businesses, most of them small, are finding success by exporting their Made-in-America products abroad.

Lance Scranton: Be an informed voter

If you follow politics, you likely identify yourself as conservative, liberal, or maybe even libertarian. If you vote, you are likely to look for either Republican, Democrat, or a third party choice.

Prather’s Pick: A book about reaching a goal

Kids like to read books about tractors, such as the picture books about “Otis” and “Big Tractor” — books previously reviewed in this column. This week I found “Tractor Mac: New Friend” one in a series of books about a red tractor, and I was impressed because during the story, the reader learns how to go about solving a problem.

Stephanie Pearce: Healing paws

Being in the hospital can be a very trying time. Unless you’ve given birth, you’re usually there because you’re ailing in some way. I can attest to that after a recent stay with my husband.

Robin Schiffbauer: Thank you

A thank you is certainly in order to Moffat County citizens for their ongoing support of St Michael’s Community Kitchen.
