Neil Folks: Lord, forgive board

I ask that you forgive them, Father, our loving creator, for they know not what they’ve done that will send a reverberating shock wave through the school community and the community as a whole.

Jamie Daszkiewicz: Mom upset with board

I am a mom to seven. I am blessed to have six of them here on earth. By earth, I mean this little community nestled in the Yampa Valley, good ole Craig. I happen to feel a connection to this land. After 10 years and several states, it is home.

Jamie Daszkiewicz: Upset with school board

I could say it was bound to happen given the social and political climate we live in. I just wish it would not have been something that will affect my children so immensely in a negative fashion.

Sandy Orgoglioso: Ann Frank play excellence

I am sorry that this letter will be submitted two weeks after the performance of the Diary of Anne Frank performed by the High School Drama Club, but the gratitude remains the same. The community is so pleased and encouraged by their recent performance. Their work was a masterpiece of talent and focus; New York or Denver could not match!

Neil Folks: Mill levy is worth it

This article is my summation regarding the school board’s outlook on the Moffat County School District Budget work. Continued budget reductions (or cuts) only results in limited results in educating our children for the 21st Century.

Neil Folks: Give support

I have been a regular attendee at most of the Moffat County School District’s Board meetings the past three years. I’ve watched and experienced the changes that are slowly taking place in our school system. Granted, CHANGE is not easy.

Lance Scranton: Responding to criticism

My name is Lance Scranton, and I have raised my family in Craig and plan to be here for a long time because I love Northwest Colorado. I was so glad to hear from two of my colleagues who are passionate and dedicated professionals.

Karen Chaney and Kristin O’Connor: Scranton is wrong

As members of the high school’s Leadership Team and district’s Problem-Solving and Negotiations Team, we are writing to express our disappointment with Lance Scranton’s misleading attack on our school district, our stakeholder budget meetings and our fellow teachers in his March 1 column.

I wanted to take the time to warn all the fisherman in this area about the CPW's tournament at Elkhead this spring.

Lois Stoffle: TMH made a good decision

Why was the good news, that The Memorial Hospital Board was cancelling (not renewing) the hospital management company, not on the front page of the paper Saturday? It was “hidden” in the middle section with Health news.
