Legions of the Blue and Gray! Back on the road today. With visions of glory. For a lifetime to stay!
Small-town people are wonderful. I’ve lived in Craig for almost two years, and everyone I’ve met has made me feel very welcome. When I first moved here, I had trouble finding some places so I would ask for directions.
On Feb. 1, I attempted to do business with one of the downtown businesses. The sign on their door stated they would be open at 10 a.m. I got to the business a few minutes early, and was prepared to wait till 10 a.m.
On Jan. 22, I had the good fortune to give a tour of the Bord Gulch Ranch, which I manage, to the most influential people out there when it comes to the future of sage grouse. I was honored to have the chance to share my “on-the-ground” conservation efforts.
Thank you, Tim Knez and his helper. We were on our way to the Veterinary Hospital in Steamboat Springs on the early morning of Jan. 16 with a very sick dog when our car broke down west of Milner. We were frantic, to say the least.
My mother, Stella Hall, was a schoolteacher in Craig for 40 years. As many are aware, she began having health issues several years ago, but with the help of many fine medical persons and caregivers, she improved to the point she could enjoy life.
Like the game “Telephone,” a message often becomes skewed as it travels from brain to mouth to print, which was the case during a Craig Community Assessment meeting.
The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank several businesses and individuals in our community.
It was reported recently that John Rossfeld has been hired as the interim CEO of The Memorial Hospital at Craig. As an employee of the hospital where he served as interim CEO for 18 months (Newman Regional Health in Emporia, Kan.), I can say without a doubt that you are in good hands.
While on a train going between terminals at the Heathrow Airport in London, our son, Dr. Michael Wilson, overheard a young lady asking if someone could help her with some directions, since this was her first time outside the United States. Dr. Mike asked her where she was from and she said, “Baggs, Wyo.” and a lady she was talking to also said, “Well I was born in Meeker, Colo.”
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Craig, the surrounding communities and the people that live in this great area. As many of you know, William Kole Nielson was in a traffic accident Dec. 11 and lost his life. It was almost immediate the response Kole’s family received.
Due to lack of my own knowledge and always reading the newspaper after the fact, I regretfully missed out on being able to nominate someone for the “Volunteer of the Year.”
This is an open letter to all residents in Meeker School District-RE1. Last week, the Meeker Board of Education (MBE) approved current policy DBH and declared the school district in a fiscal emergency.
Our sincere thanks to our many friends in Craig and Moffat County for your outpouring of support, cards, letters and calls following the passing of my wife, Luann, and our mom Dec. 26.
The IRS recently proposed new regulations that will further stifle political speech and make it more difficult for citizen-led groups and associations to form.
