On April 23, Moffat County High School will host the Lewis “Dude” Dent Memorial Award Selection Dinner for the outstanding senior male and female athlete of MCHS for 2014. The event will highlight the academic and athletic achievements of the best male and female student athletes Moffat County has to offer.

This week’s book for young adult readers (probably aimed at middle school age) has an unusual title and a rather unexpected plot. “Stay Where You Are & Then Leave” was written by John Boyne, the author of “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas,” which became a Miramax feature film.

Rene' Littlehawk: Chicken feathers and scratch

I've seen so many people buying chicks this year. Whether starting a new flock or replenishing an existing flock, baby chicks bring delight and smiles to most. They also, unfortunately, bring a bit of work and require some knowledge to maintain in a healthy and productive manner.

Baxter Black: The western migration invasion

Rep. Bob Rankin: Legislative session still going strong

The session will end May 7. We’ve passed 114 bills and killed 118. There probably are another 250 bills in the system, so it will be a busy month.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Captain America’ sequel weaker but still packs a punch

When your job used to involve throwing a red, white and blue hunk of metal at a bunch of Nazis, it’s understandable you might feel a little out of place in modern society. But as “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” shows, there are always enemies to be defeated.

Leonard Browning: Ask Jesus what you need

I just returned from a week in Florida, where I experienced reinforcement in Biblical principles I am learning regarding helping people in need.
