Letters to the editor


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.

F. Neil Folks — The Wandering Elder: It’s time!

Yes, it’s time to let the outside world know who we are! We’re the West.

Bobbi Peed: Animal carcass concern

I read the article about the dumping of animal carcasses on CR 7, not once but several times to be sure I was understanding the content.

John Pogline: Coal mine confusion

Excuse my ignorance, but it has always been my understanding that our constitution guarantees a fair trial. So explain to me how Colowyo and Trapper Mine got a fair trial from a judge who is self-proclaimed environmentalist and one who stated in many news articles, each before the trial started, that he was going to rule against both mines.

Gilbert Stehle: Thanks YVMC

I would like to say thank you to the staff at Yampa Valley Medical Center for the care they gave me before and during and after my surgery.

Gail Severson: Great column Pearce

Stephanie Pearce’s article in Monday’s CRAIG Daily Press was right on, and I would like to thank her sincerely.

Kip Hafey,
 Dave Pressgrove,
 Lance Scranton and 
Todd Trapp: Track support thanks

Thanks so much to our community which has embraced track and field during the past many years. From our Youth Track events, helping with the Clint Wells Invitational, traveling to watch competitions and cheering on our athletes. Your help and support is genuinely appreciated.

Patrick Mosbey
: An exercise in futility

On one of my frequent trips to the Yampa River, where I exercise my dogs, I met a couple of wildlife employee’s on “Pike patrol.” They spoke of the “non-native” species that are doing so much (perceived) damage to our ecosystem here in Colorado. I was somewhat amused by their naive outlook, not having lived more than a couple of decades.

Andrews, Barnes, Woodley: Support so appreciated

In the loss of our loved one Bill Barnes, our family will never be able to express our appreciation for the kindness and caring support that we received from family, many friends and our community during this difficult time.

Joe and Laura Schmidt
: Friendly and hospitable

We have had the wonderful opportunity to visit your town for the past two days. Such pride and friendliness in a town in this day and age seems rare. First we stayed at the KOA run by the Price’s. They were such hospitable folks wanting us to take in everything Craig had to offer.

Betty Wolgram: Grant Mortuary helped

I wish to express my thanks and gratitude to Jesse Arthurs and the staff at Grant Mortuary in Craig and to all the staff and residents of The Haven Senior Assisted Living in Hayden for their kindnesses to me and for their love and care of my beloved mother, Frances Buchanan, who passed away at The Haven on April 14.

Interfaith Food Bank: Food bank success

Our local postal workers recently assisted by our giving community collected 5,680 pounds of food and more than $300 cash for the Interfaith Food Bank.

Ruth White: Thanks for medical help

I’d like to thank all the people who helped me get well from phenomena.

Gary Cox: Thanks, Bears Ears group

I’m extending a special thank you to the Bears Ears Patriots group for hosting an evening of discussion related to the Convention of States Project, a special evening with great conversation and questions.
