Your Colorado neighbor to the south, Delta County, has its challenges. We just lost 800 coal mining jobs and the surviving 200 are none too secure. That’s caused many families with children to leave, hitting our schools hard.
We couldn’t be happier with our second annual Rubber Ducky Race held on Aug. 27 in Craig. More than 500 rubber ducks bobbed along the Yampa River — that’s 150 more ducks than last year!
We’re both former Colorado Republican Senators, and we’re voting for Emily Tracy for Colorado Senate. Emily is a Democrat, but it’s not about partisanship: it’s about protecting our lands, our rural values, and having someone who actually listens to us in the Senate.
In politics, the facts can often get caught up and overlooked amidst hyperbole and campaign slogans. It troubles me when we the voters do not get the whole story.
Thank you so very much for all the good wishes, cards and gifts from all my special customers. The years I have “spoiled all of you” have been a blast. I am so blessed to have been your “Checker of Choice” at City Market. Thank you all for being great customers.
They are constantly working to make “their views” the rule of law.
I would like to publicly thank the Craig, Maybell, Hayden and Steamboat Springs’ communities for their enthusiastic promotion of Constitution Week by exhibiting our numerous displays and supporting our activities. Special thanks to the Craig Daily Press and KRAI/55 Country for their media coverage and public announcements.
Danielle Elkins' recent opinion column provided a thoughtful perspective on the stress and anxiety in coal communities across the nation due to the sharp loss of coal jobs recently. It is true that the industry has faced drops in the number of mines and miners in the past, but the remaining and new mines were larger, more productive and miners' wages increased. Today, the average coal mine wage is almost $84,000 and with overtime miners can take home six figures a year.
I cannot believe someone telling us to put our morals aside and vote for pot. What do they think we govern our lives by? Our morals.
I recently was DEEPLY OFFENDED when (CK), quarterback for the 49er’s refused to stand during our national anthem. He claims that he as a minority has been “oppressed” by America.
The families of Terry Carwile/Kathryn Deitz, Don Cook, Dennis and Sherry Fredrickson, and Wayne Quick are indebted to the firefighters and other emergency personnel who responded to the rangeland fire that broke out the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 11, north of Craig.
I will have to admit that I am ignorant of some of the facts presented by Leeann Cline. I do know that it is a good thing that parents put their weed where their kids cannot get to it — because we know that kids never get into things they are not supposed to.
While there are many people debating the pros and cons of allowing recreational marijuana sales in Moffat County, most of the arguments leave out one important thing — facts.
Hey man, look here. We can buy pot in Moffat County! Let’s go buy some. There, let’s toke up. Hey, that’s good stuff. Let’s go, we’d better head home. Whoops, ran over that kid on a bicycle. That’s okay, people here would rather have the money from pot than worry about losing one life.
This is in response to Michael Lausin’s letter about missing out on pot. In all of his Bla-bla-bla about how great pot would be for the town of Craig, you notice he never once mentioned anything about the effects that pot and other drugs have had on our country’s children, including ones here in Craig.
