Letters to the editor


The Wellman family: Thanks for thoughts

The family of Lucille A. Wellman would like to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers during Lucille’s passing. She loved this community and her many wonderful friends! There are too many to name here, but please know that each kind thought, gentle gesture and fond memory was greatly appreciated. It is a comfort to know others miss Lucille as much as we do.

Lawrence L. Sober: Hazing incident shameful

It is unfortunate that our community and high school has lost these football coaches. The fact is that in every incident the supervisors are responsible first and foremost. Any situation like this has to be supervised closely to see that things like this never happen again. Someone that was in a supervisory position should have known what was going on during this football camp.

Junior Herndon: Baseball academy success

As founder and owner of Herndon’s Five Tool Baseball Academy, I would like to take the time to thank and appreciate all of the support I received this weekend for my first baseball camp. Without the people and support that I had, none of this would have been possible.

Ruth Greenwood: Hazing inquiry

What were they thinking? The hazing issue perpetrated by upperclassmen on the football team of Moffat County has raised many questions in my mind.

MCHS coaches: To the editor

An open letter to the Moffat County School Board, school administrators, football parents, community members and football players: As football coaches, we are deeply disappointed that actions were taken by certain individuals that have caused a crippling ripple effect in our community.

Kevin Loughran: Thanks MCHS coaches

I am writing to thank coach Hafey, coach Scranton and the rest of the coaching staff for their hard work and dedication throughout the years.

John Ponikvar: Awesome fireworks

I would like to thank Kris Olsen, KC Hume and the rest of the Craig Fire/Rescue for putting on a truly spectacular fireworks display on the Fourth of July.

Lynn and Ella Curtis: Bad choice newspaper

After going through Monday’s (July 7, 2014) paper, we really question the Craig Daily Press’ opinion on the priority of importance of articles. Why would you put “Lawsuits looking to stop work at mines in three states” on page 11?

Mark Parchman: County commissioners

Recent events have made it prudent perhaps to consider replacing or adding to the signage that we currently have for the people that live here and those that travel through also.

Helen Baysinger: Thanks TMH

Once again, I want to thank the doctors at The Memorial Hospital and all of the nurses in the emergency department, and a special thank you goes to David Higgins. Thank you to all of the nurses, nurse aides, kitchen, housekeeping and lab.

Wyman Living History Museum: Thank you

The Wyman Living History Museum would like to thank Brothers Custom Processing for generously donating all the meat for the barbecue to be held July 19 during the Cast and Blast and grand opening of the archery range.

Ron and Audrey Danner: Thanks, Fire/Rescue

Thank you for the quick response to our fire from Craig Fire/Rescue and the volunteers who saved our home June 20. We can replace the garage, barn and dog run but are grateful that we only are repairing our home.

Steve Andrew: Thanks for the cards

Early this summer my daughter sent the paper a letter announcing my 75th birthday and requesting cards be sent from my friends and acquaintances. Man, did I hit the jackpot.

Benjie Robinson: A letter sent to council

As a concerned citizen of Craig, I am asking that ordinance No. 1030 be repealed. Although I believe the council passed this ordinance with the intent of protecting the city, in my opinion, it is quite damaging. I know the council wanted to wait and see how other towns and cities would be handling recreational marijuana and that probably was a wise move. Now the state is at the point where evidence has proven that a smart approach to the recreational marijuana industry is working.

Carolyn Casinger: Thank you

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank some of the individuals and businesses in Craig for their generous help and donations.
