The article in Saturday’s Daily Press by Tom Chart concerning the elimination of the “invasive species” in the Yampa River and Elkhead Reservoir finally struck the last nerve and has prompted me to respond in kind.
The Upper Colorado Endangered Fish Recovery Program is keenly aware that actions to recover endangered fish can impact local communities.
When that petition comes around to cultivate prosperity in our “quaint little town,” I urge you not to sign it.
If you want to keep the game fish (Bass and Pike) in Elkhead, DO NOT participate in this joke of a tournament.
I wanted to take this opportunity to let Moffat County residents know that I am running for Moffat County Commissioner, District 1, as a write-in candidate in the General Election in November.
A poem by Duane Koukol, of Craig.
It is legal to possess one ounce or less of marijuana on your person, anywhere in Colorado, and because that is written into our state constitution, that right may not be infringed upon. It is legal for a person over 21 to grow up to six plants within their house.
Hats off to the Young Professionals of our community for stepping forth and letting the community know you are present. Your presentation of breaking bread together and program at the first Friday Fest in Downtown Craig was great.

The United States Post Office annual food drive has once again exceeded expectations!
Roman Gutierrez, Moffat County High School Wrestling Coach, (1982 to 2013), headed for Hall of Fame recognition. Congratulations on your well deserved award Coach Gutierrez, however, I feel there has been a grave injustice in not recognizing your assistant coach, Don Guffy. He was very instrumental in the success of Moffat County High Schools’ wrestling program through his time, dedication, devotion and love of the sport.

According to CDOT statistics, as reported in the Monday, May 23, 2016 Craig Daily Press, “nearly 55 percent of marijuana users drove high an average of seven days per month. And according to the Colorado State Patrol, so far this year, nearly one out of every five DUI’s in Colorado involves marijuana.”
The only effect that banning recreational cannabis in Craig has, is that of helping to diminish our already disparaged economy. Help us to urge our local politicians to make the right choice!
I asked about her tattoo.
