The upcoming MCSD School Board election is of critical importance. There are four seats changing.

To the editor: Worried about school calendar

One school district goal is “reconnecting with the community.” Back in May, two new proposed calendars were given to the school board. Five months later, administration has yet to release them to the community for input.

Stacy Timmer: iPad frustration

I have witnessed firsthand our teacher’s desperate need for additional hands on help due to the alarming increase in class size and behavioral issues.

David Morris: Parrotheads cleaning up

On Saturday, Oct. 3, members of the Northwest Colorado Chapter of Parrotheads conducted their semi-annual cleanup of the Pebble Beach area along the Yampa River.

Nearly 350 rubber ducks bobbed along the Yampa River during the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association’s first Craig Rubber Ducky Race on Sept. 5.

Moffat County Cancer Society Board of Directors: Thank you for your support

Our organization, Moffat County Cancer Society, would like to, once again, express our many thanks, deep appreciation and thoughtfulness to Irene, Tony and Steve and all the staff of Victory Motors of Craig for hosting the amazing Second Annual “Bite Out of Cancer” Drive, held July 21 through 25.

John P. Pogline: Craig says 'no' pot

Though I believe no pot in Craig financially affects your business, I do not believe for a minute that Craig and Moffat County have lost millions and millions of dollars due to the voters here not being smart enough to legalize the weed.

Rolandos and Barneses: Thank you during loss

We live in one amazing community. Our family was amazed by the overwhelming love and support we received during this most difficult time in our lives.

Family of Margaret Thompson: Much thanks

A huge thank you to our friends, neighbors, family and the community of Craig for the love and generosity we received upon the passing of our mother, Margaret Thompson.

Paul D. James: Pot helps our economy

A couple of years ago, when Amendment 64 passed in the state of Colorado, the vote lost by four percent here in Moffat County. Since then, we have seen millions of dollars made in Steamboat Springs, which has boosted their already self-sustaining economy all around, increasing tourism and improving the incomes of restaurants, bars and hotels.

The Weber family: Thank you, everyone

We, the Weber family, would like to thank everyone for their love and support during our loss.
