Letters to the editor


Greg Smith: Tear down eyesores

Signal Hill. Isn’t it about time they tore that eyesore down? It never will be renovated. Seems like whoever owns it now has some kind of “special connections.” Any other place in town that has decayed to that point has been the subject of intense scrutiny. (Craig Motel, anyone?)

Marilynn Hill: Wake up candidates

I have begun to see a number of advertisements online and in the newspaper for candidates vying for the Moffat County Commissioner race, District 3. Truly, I wish the candidates would just stick to the issues of the county that they can impact such as roads, schools, taxes, tourism, health care, economic development, transportation, etc.

Trisha King, Melissa Dowd, Sharon Skwarek and Janie Wilson: Thanks Parrot Heads

The Craig Middle School literature teachers would like to thank the Parrot Head Club for its generous donation in supporting the arts of the middle school for the Carol Jacobson Memorial Poetry Contest. There were 115 entries in the contest, and there were five prize winners, as well as five honorable mentions.

Advocates-Crisis Support Services: Sexual assault awareness

The children and teens of today are our hope for tomorrow. It’s important for us as parents, caring adults and communities to help set young people on the path for a healthy future and support them as they work to create positive change. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and this year’s campaign is focused on youth.

Cammi Balleck: Tribute to Lex Burton

The range was his home, far from his saddle he did not roam. His hands knew of wrenches, ropes and wire. Many hours he parked his wagon, and stayed warm by the camp fire.

Walt and Marilyn Stevens: Thank you TMH

Wow — great things are happening at TMH Medical Clinic. Now when we call, we talk to a person instead of a machine. For seniors in our community, this is extremely important. The doctors and staff are very timely, friendly and professional. We appreciate all of you and the changes you are making.

Early Childhood Coalition: A sincere thanks

The Early Childhood Coalition would like to thank the following organizations for their support with our Children’s Festival this year.

Yolanda Cruz, Heather Cruz and family: Thanks for support

I would love to thank the community, Adriana Robbins, Shannon Moore and Vallarta’s Restaurant, who worked to get a fundraiser for my daughter, Heather Cruz, who has Hodgkin lymphoma. All the support was so appreciated.

Duane Koukol: For my plant friends

To all my friends at the power plant, hi!

Tony St. John: TMH is excellent

I would like the people in Craig and surrounding areas to know how great my health care experience was at TMH.

Karen Brown, staff and board members: Thank you, Bank of Colorado

The Community Budget Center would like to publicly thank the Bank of Colorado for all of the help they gave to us last week.

Caitlin Balch-Burnett: Sage grouse tour was great

Many of our group, some visiting from as far away as the East Coast, had never been to Craig, or seen the storied sage grouse in person. We enjoyed every moment of our time in Craig and the surrounding wildlands, and we surely will recommend the area to fellow wildlife enthusiasts and lovers of the outdoors.

Eric Myers
: Give time to Red Cross

The American Red Cross Western Colorado Chapter is celebrating its volunteers and the work they do in the community during National Volunteer Week, April 6 through 12.
We couldn’t do what we do without the tireless work of our dedicated volunteers.

Susan Mizen: Horizons invites all to contest

Horizons would like to extend an invitation to the entire Moffat County community to attend our second annual Pick a Dish cooking contest from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday.

Neil McCandless: Dr. Kinder will be missed

I am sorry to see another of our hometown doctors leave town. Goodbye Dr. Kinder. We will certainly miss you! Instead, I would like to see the Quorum Management group leave town. I wish our hospital board had the courage to dismiss them!
