Prather's Pick: A new cookbook

This past weekend I read a cookbook — I actually read it, not just looked through the recipes. There’s interesting information in the book for reading, and I enjoyed it a lot. I found the cookbook with new books at the Craig Moffat County Library. “Back in the Day Bakery: Made with Love” was written by Cheryl Day and Griffith Day. The book is published by Artisan, a division of Workman Publishing Company, Inc. The authors have previously published “The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook.”

Asked by members of the community to deliver a short address to those attending Baccalaureate this year, I thought back to one of my favorite books written many years ago that taught me some life lessons that have carried me through both good times and bad.

Senior Spotlight: Saying goodbye to my column

Having the position of Moffat County Seniors Activity Director gave me opportunity to meet people and know what was happening in Craig and surrounding areas. My columns were mainly about what was going on and who was participating in the events, also local family events and notices, just a basic who’s doing what or who is going where. Since the town was smaller it seemed like everyone knew everyone or had heard of them and local news held a distinct interest to the readers.

Stephanie Pearce: Protect our coal mines

This last week has been a whirlwind of emotion with the ruling of Judge R. Brooke Jackson regarding his decision that affects Colowyo Mine. I honestly wonder where common sense has gone sometimes.

Faith Column: What's your worldview?

Unless you are in college or seminary, how often do you think about how your worldview affects your day-to-day life?

Your worldview matters, and as a Christian it is especially important to look at life (and beyond) with the right perspective, or worldview.

Over a Cup of Coffee: Making salads with a variety of greens

Four years ago at around this time, I wrote that none of the candidates in the race could possibly win the Republican nomination, even though I, and everyone else, knew Mitt Romney would.

Lance Scranton: You will be called!

Graduation season is upon us and people want to know what to tell those who are preparing to go off to college, find a job or experience a little rest and relaxation. After the flurry of fist bumps, endless hugs, countless celebrations and a few speeches; graduates will be left, just as we were, to figure out how their years of education can pay dividends.

Prather’s Pick: A letter that changed two lives

This week’s book is written for teen readers (juvenile/young adult), but older readers will enjoy reading it, too. I liked it a lot! It’s an inspirational book and a true story. “I Will Always Write Back: How One Letter Changed Two Lives” was written by Caitlin Alifirenka and Martin Ganda with Liz Welch (who helped Caitlin and Martin tell their story). The book is published by Little, Brown and Company, 2015.

Rep. Bob Rankin’s Under the Dome: Impressions of 2015 legislative session
