Moffat County has worked hard to implement new security measures designed to keep our children as safe as possible. School safety has been in the forefront of everyone’s minds given the events of the past 10-plus years. But safety is not just about “threats,” it also is about health and welfare.
The staff at the Museum of Northwest Colorado would like to express our deep appreciation to Ken Wergin, dedicated citizen and volunteer extraordinaire.
I would like to encourage our community to see the beautiful Christmas trees on display on the main floor of the Moffat County Courthouse. The trees are interpretations of movie themes, including the Grinch, Snoopy, the nativity story, “Polar Express” and more. There are approximately 25 trees, decorated by various, very creative, nonprofit organizations. Cheers to Moffat County United Way and the Moffat County High School Student Council for sponsoring this event.
The Marianna Raftopoulos Business Incubator Center is pleased to receive a $10,000 grant from Shell. Our partnership with Shell will provide staff and volunteer education and developing a solid marketing plan. These are two components of a strong foundation for our Business Center.
We are seeking the community’s help in locating a witness or the person responsible for a hit-and-run on a parked blue 2013 Subaru Forester between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Friday in the parking area between Pizza Hut and McDonald’s.
Thank you to the kind and generous person who paid for a meal for my family and I. Your kindness brought tears to my eyes. There truly still are good people in this world.
I strongly urge Moffat County residents to attend and participate in our open forum with Gov. John Hickenlooper. We need to send a strong message back to the state capitol that we feel disenfranchised by urban lawmakers.

It was an honor and a privilege to serve on the Moffat County School Board as the District 7 representative. I hope to continue to volunteer to support this community in any way I can. I have served on other boards in the past, and I know that this is a great community with a lot of good hard working citizens. I wish to thank all of the people who voted for me in this past election!
A group of small businesses are encouraging everyone with a business to attend Gov. John Hickenlooper’s town forum in Craig. It will be held at 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday at Colorado Northwestern Community College, 2801 W. Ninth St., Room 175. Let’s fill that room so full that they have to move the agenda out of the room and all the way down the hall.
I am fortunate to live in Craig, where people actually come to help their fellow neighbors, and thanks to those who called me to make sure I was unhurt.
I attended the Craig Moffat Economic Development Partnership meeting with the Craig City Council and the Moffat County Commissioners this past Tuesday night. A serious and heartfelt conversation was held by these three entities concerning our local economy.
The kind generosity of good friends like you has been a great help to us during this very difficult time. We would like to offer our most sincere thanks for the meals, flowers, cards and prayers you sent in memory of our dad and husband, Ron “Gramps” Alexander Sr.
Why wait until a health crisis arises or a terminal diagnosis is received to make your wishes known? Have you started thinking about and talking about how you want the end of your life to be? As hospice providers, we work with families facing these tough questions each day.
I would like to personally thank the voters of Moffat County for placing their trust in me to serve as a member of the Moffat County School Board.
