Letters to the editor


Louise Irvine: Gratitude for support

Perhaps you sent a lovely card or set upon a chair.

Lois Stoffle: Thank you!

It’s 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 24, 2015, and I just got home from taking a very relaxing river float trip.

Lois Stoffle: Whittle the Wood makes for a grand weekend

What a grand weekend at Loudy-Simpson Park!

Randy Sloan: What a great community

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.

Brad Golden: Not ashamed of Craig

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.

Paul James: Opportunity missed daily

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.

January Zaledzieski: Ashamed of Craig

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.

Gregory A. Hamilton: District budget woes

While I do not consider myself an expert, I have audited and reviewed school district budgets around this state for more than 35 years as a certified public accountant.

Randy Looper: Sage grouse concerns

As owner of the Elk Run Inn, I am concerned about the fate of the Greater Sage Grouse, whose habitat includes sagebrush lands here in northwest Colorado and 10 other western states and two Canadian provinces.

Tanya Stoffle: Thanks, first responders

Recently there was a very significant motor vehicle accident that occurred along Highway 40 just east of the Maybell community. Maybell is a very small community with a very large area to cover for our 100 percent volunteer emergency services.

Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots: Bennet wrong about the Export-Import Bank

Most Americans probably have no idea what the Export-Import Bank even is, much less why it’s in the news right now. Yet it’s becoming the latest front in the fight to trim federal government.

Humane Society: Thank you

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank Northwest Storage, Clarion 
Inn and the Craig Daily Press for all their help and support.

Shannan Koucherik: Pearce’s great column

I usually enjoy Stephanie Pearce’s column, but this week’s entry really hit home. The dog she and her family visited was Kandu, who with his owner Ken Rogers, is part of a seasoned Heeling Friends therapy team working in hospitals, nursing homes, classrooms and other places where pets can bring peace and comfort to hurting people.

Phyllis Barainca: Offensive cartoon

What makes a power hungry, lying, cheating, money grubber like Hillary Clinton think she is qualified to be the president?

Robin Schiffbauer: Thank you

A thank you is certainly in order to Moffat County citizens for their ongoing support of St Michael’s Community Kitchen.
