Craig won’t beat Steamboat. As a life-time resident and Moffat County Alumni, it is disappointing to see how Craig is losing our small-town vibe.
I read the letter in the paper June 13 (sorry a little behind) regarding the liquor stores and bars for boycotting The New Belgium and Breckenridge Beer Co. and how ashamed she was of them. I am proud of all the bar and liquor stores for standing up for the mine and their workers.
This past week I unfortunately, no, fortunately had the opportunity to spend time with the staff and even administrators at The Memorial Hospital. While I was there I was amazed at the professionalism, capabilities, and abilities this facility brings to the community.
At a time when everyone is trying to work together to create a plan that will protect sage grouse habitat, we have a large and very invasive project proposed, the TransWest power line through the heart of sage grouse habitat. That just doesn’t make sense.
Thank you for giving reporter Lauren Blair the time and resources to write the series of articles about the greater sage grouse. The story was fair, accurate, educational and respectful of all interests. The balanced reporting is a real asset to this community.
As to the letter from Mr. James, everything he states in his letter is pure conjecture and more than likely inflated.
As a recent graduate, I am currently learning the road of the adult life. There are hard decisions to make and I’m realizing that there are things that are more important than others.
Recently, I remember my cousin giving me a hard time about having a New Belgium beer company sticker on my car.
Perhaps you sent a lovely card or set upon a chair.
It’s 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, 2015, and I just got home from taking a very relaxing river float trip.
What a grand weekend at Loudy-Simpson Park!
I just want to thank all our family, friends, neighbors, strangers and all the great people in this community that has given our family love and support in a difficult time.
As a new resident of Craig, but no stranger to small town living, I for one commend the Craig community for taking a stand against the supporters of an organization that, based on my research, is going after the Colowyo Mine simply because it is a manufacturer of coal, not because it is a threat to any natural resource in our area.
I work as the manager of the Craig Apothecary, and have for almost four years. We remain a medical only dispensary, whereas both Craig and Moffat County have not allowed the retail sales, cultivation or manufacture of cannabis products.
As a member of this community for more than 30 years, I have to say that I am saddened by the things that have been happening during the past couple of days.
