Letters to the editor


Kerry Kelly and The Freedom Hooves: Hooves is appreciated

Thank you, Freedom Hooves, for such a beautiful and wonderful day we all had on the trail ride at Duffy Mountain on June 7. There was a 5-mile and an 11-mile ride with 46 riders in attendance. It started at about 9 a.m. and the last rider in was at 2 p.m. The weather was fantastic! We got some awesome pictures and everyone had fun!

Billie Jacobs and Kate Peroulis: Vote Moe

This is a letter in support of Frank Moe for Moffat County Commissioner. After working with Frank during our last election, we were very impressed with his ability to organize and get things accomplished.

The Gates Family: Thank you for support

We would like to take a minute and thank some very important people on behalf of Joe Gates and family. I want to thank the women of Faith (Faith Lutheran Church) for all your support providing meals and also the great reception. Pastor Turner, of Faith Lutheran Church, for such a wonderful service and for all your emotional and spiritual support.

Duane Koukol: ‘Here We Go Again?’

Here we go again! Another long-range bombing mission! While they throw down their guns! Uniforms and run! Ha! We gave those guns to you! Don’t you want to stay and play?

Charlene Barnes: Thanks for support

The Frank Woodley and Bill Barnes Families would like to thank the many people who gave food, cards, phone calls, visits, money and flowers after the loss of Shelia Woodley. The many thoughts and prayers were greatly appreciated. Shelia will be greatly missed but always remembered. We cannot thank you enough.

John Husband: Loving Craig to death

Have I told you that I love this place? If I haven’t, it might be because I don’t know you, or haven’t talked with you, or it just hasn’t come up in our conversations. But I do. I really love this place.
Beautiful wide open spaces, mountains, desert, canyons, rivers, lakes and streams. Hard-working people who also appreciate all we have here.

Tony and Maggie St. John: We support Moe

I am sure it will come as no surprise to many people in Craig that we are supporting Frank Moe in his run for Moffat County Commissioner. And because we are close friends with Frank, we can truly say we know Frank and what kind of person you will have serving your interest in Moffat County.

Duane Koukel: A poem called ‘Walk’

Want to stand high, When you feel so low, Want to walk deep, In the evening snow ...

Tom Cramer: Vote for Moe

It’s campaign time again here in Moffat County. We will get to hear promises from our candidates pledging things they will accomplish if elected — all the candidates, that is, except for one.

Anthony Mazzola: Mazzola for Rio Blanco

I have proudly served the public since 1985 when I entered the United States Army, in which I served for 4 1/2 years and then again in 1990 when I was recalled for Operation Desert Storm. Soon after my return from Desert Storm I began my law enforcement career with the Rio Blanco County Sheriff’s Office, beginning as a jailer yet quickly working my way through the ranks from patrol deputy to administration as undersheriff.

Paul and Sherrie Knez: Vote for Moe

A true leader serves. Serves people. Serves their best interests, and in doing so will not always be popular, but because true leaders are motivated by loving concern rather than a desire for personal glory, they are willing to pay the price.

Renee Campbell: Paper cares for veterans

The Craig Daily Press very much cares for the veterans of our country. As general manager of the newspaper, I want the community to know we have the highest respect for our honorable heroes, and we are extremely grateful for the sacrifices they gave for our freedoms.

Allen Hischke: Shame on Daily Press

First, Memorial Day passed with little or no recognition of our heroic veterans and active military people.
Now we are at the 70th anniversary of D-Day, and again the Craig Daily Press has chosen to print nothing in the paper about one of the most daring and deadly operations of World War II. 

Larry Ellgen: Support Frank Moe

I would like to express my support for Frank Moe as Moffat County commissioner. I have known Frank for more than 20 years and have found him to be a great example of honesty, integrity, determination and business savvy.

Jane Hume: Senior center needs logo

We need a logo for the Senior Social Center! There is a contest open for artists to submit ideas or completed designs by Monday. These will be displayed at a Whittle the Wood booth, where you can vote for your favorite with your dollars.
