It was a pleasure to see in the Craig Daily Press the story and photo of students of Craig Middle School planting trees at Brown's Park National Wildlife Refuge.
I ask that you forgive them Father, our loving creator, for they know not what they've done that will send a reverberating shock wave through the school community and the community as a whole.
I could say it was bound to happen given the social and political climate we live in. I just wish it would not have been something that will affect my children so immensely in a negative fashion.
Nothing happened here. Even after factoring in the thuggery and the lies and the victim-blaming and the fact-denying, it was just another day on the campaign trail with Donald Trump, the man who would be president.
In September of 2015, ten scientists won the satirical Ig Nobel Prize for scientific studies of questionable worth. When I read about the tongue-in-cheek prize and the dubious research it rewarded, I felt better about my failed attempts to participate in an extra-curricular science fair in seventh grade.
There are few superhero clashes that every comic book fan has wanted to see on the big screen more than that of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” a youthful eagerness kept in check by a steadfast decision to hate the outcome before even seeing it. The casual film viewer should never trust a fanboy’s assessment on anything within pop culture, but yes, there are good reasons for the negativity you’ve already heard.
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.
This week’s novel, a suspense thriller, was written by Joy Fielding, a New York Times bestselling author. You may know her for “Someone is Watching” or another of the over 20 novels she has written.
We really miss *you! You were such a fierce competitor and we had such high hopes for you as a football player, track runner and student. We knew you had some issues, all of us do, but you worked hard to overcome them. We tried our best to support you but still keep you accountable and challenge you to become something we all saw in you.
Coal is important to Moffat County residents, and that’s why the recent news about Peabody’s financial woes have many scared that our community is yet again under attack.
Not many of us think about needing air ambulances. We don’t dwell on that possibility, but for people hurt in car accidents or who live in smaller or rural communities without medical care at hand, being airlifted to a hospital can mean the difference between life and death.
On a spring day like today, when the snow is blowing like crazy, I’m reminded of Easters past, when my brother, sister and I were growing up on the ranch. We looked forward to Easter pretty much the way we looked forward to Christmas. However, the likelihood that we would be able to find eggs and our baskets outdoors was slim, indeed, and it didn’t really matter whether Easter came in March or April.
The roads to Sand Wash are open again, well some days. The recent snow storms have dumped more snow in the basin adding more stress to the herd that has struggled with a harsh winter. Seeing firsthand the thin, ragged horses this week was the hard truth to the winter they endured.
The Rotary Club of Craig is again inviting groups, organizations and individuals to sponsor American flags that will be placed downtown and along Victory way several times in 2016. Sponsorship is $75 per year per flag and all sponsors will be thanked and acknowledged publically.
I am sorry that this letter will be submitted two weeks after the performance of the Diary of Anne Frank performed by the High School Drama Club, but the gratitude remains the same. The community is so pleased and encouraged by their recent performance. Their work was a masterpiece of talent and focus; New York or Denver could not match!
