Letters to the editor


Matt Winey: Wake up

Should it be the federal government deciding the fate of our coal industry and the fish we have in the Yampa River or should it be our choice? This country was built on the American dream and personal freedom.

Carolyn Casinger: Thank you for hosting

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank the Thunder Rolls Bowling Center for hosting our first annual Bowling Fundraiser. They did a fabulous job.

N. McStay: Swinging Bridge concerns

Recently, our family went out to the Browns Park area. We noticed that there is still a “bridge closed” sign to the Swinging Bridge. What is going on?

Ray Beck: Coal keeps the lights on

The Moffat County High School Auditorium was packed with concerned citizens, business owners, industry employees and local elected officials to listen to Shaun McGrath, administrator for Region 8, about the proposed rules on existing coal-fired power plants.

MCHS Class of 1964: Thanks for reunion

The Moffat County High School Class of 1964 had an awesome 50th reunion in August.

Frank Moe: EPA meeting important

Today’s EPA community “COAL” meeting is truly the opportunity to not only overcome the naysayers statements that “no one on the Front Range will listen” but is the opportunity to change the decision makers’ minds.

DJ Barger: Full story on bank bear

The new icon for the Bank of Colorado is beautiful! Craig truly supports our local events, and the Whittle the Wood bear is dramatic.

The family of Roy Markham: Thank you for support

We would like to express a great appreciation for those who were so instrumental in Roy Markham’s care, especially in the last few months of his life.

Chris Welch: Draining the reservoir

Has Colorado Parks and Wildlife lost their minds? Not only is poisoning the fish and draining the reservoir absurd, it is irresponsible.

John Pogline: Elkhead issue is absurd

Well, it looks like Moffat County is in the bull’s-eye again. First it was the Yampa River, and now it’s Elkhead Reservoir. The U.S. Fish and Game Wildlife Service has destroyed the fishing for Moffat County in the Yampa River and now they want to do the same for us at Elkhead.

Larry Henderson: Leave our waters alone

Thanks for the update in the Saturday Morning Press concerning Elkhead Reservoir. I think this next fiasco concerning the Yampa River shows a lack of knowledge within our wildlife department regarding what actually goes on in Northwest Colorado.

Duane Koukol: The Little Shop

The front step, A loose one by 12. The door, turn and pick up.

Duane Koukol: A poem about Mauka: ‘The Little Shop’

The front step, A loose one by 12. The door, turn and pick up. The thought of a cold and empty coffee cup! Open and you shall see!

Carolyn Casinger: Thank you

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank the community of Craig and vicinity for its wonderful support of our annual bowling fundraiser.

Christian Montiel: Craig is great to visit

I was up in Craig recently with my Travel/Landscape class from Denver.
