We would like to thank the Craig Rotary Club for the beautiful awards and kindness shown to us for our work with St. Michael’s Community Kitchen.
To the editor: The Craig Downtown Business Association would like to thank the citizens of Craig and Moffat County for a very successful Art Walk last Saturday evening.
Connections 4 Kids early childhood council hosted its second annual Cherish the Little Things children’s art show Feb. 7 to 9, featuring 307 pieces of art by 263 artists in preschool through high school. The event was a wonderful way to showcase the work of these talented youths, and the community was so supportive of the children, their art and our efforts. Thank you to all of our art patron businesses, organizations and individuals who supported the show and Connections 4 Kids. And thanks to our “friend” businesses that made in-kind donations to help make our show a great experience for the artists and the community.
I would like to thank everyone who helped me celebrate my “second 35th birthday.”
The continuing rant on gun control by left-wing zealots is becoming nauseating. As usual, there is nothing but drama and overreaction with little fact and common sense involved. They would have you believe that all criminals and people determined to cause mayhem will just stop if we enact more gun laws. Consider that it has been against the law to murder someone for many years and these laws have not stopped murder.
With gun control topics dominating national and Colorado news, nearly 200 people filled the Shadow Mountain Village Meeting Hall last Thursday to hear Moffat County residents speak about Second Amendment issues. The meeting’s sponsor, Bears Ears Tea Party Patriots, hosted a public business meeting before the main event, and Chairman Matt Winey announced that the local tea party chapter is now an official 501(c)4 nonprofit organization. Plans for membership and annual dues or contributions will be finalized in the near future. County Commissioner John Kinkaid announced his appointment to a steering committee on Energy, Environment and Land Use as part of the National Association of Counties. He will travel to Washington, D.C., in March to meet with Colorado’s legislators.
Law enforcement officers (and firemen) represent a special breed of individuals unlike any others. They are willing to give everything to keep the people safe.
The family of Craig Browning would like to thank the wonderful community in which we live for the gracious outpouring of encouragement and support we have received during the last months of Craig’s life and especially at his passing.
More gun laws are not going to help anyone. It won't save lives, in fact it may even cost lives. One of the reasons shootings happen in theaters and schools is that the shooter feels safe, that there won't be any guns shooting back at them.
Politicians can't stop talking!
I want to say how proud I am to live in a community like Craig. I have lived here my whole life and it seems that whenever anyone needs help there is always someone willing to lend a hand.
Denver’s Channel Nine News recently did a story about the schools in Colorado in which they compiled information about the school districts across the state, including Moffat County, giving each school a letter grade. Moffat County High School received a “D+”, and Sunset Elementary an “F” in the area of academic growth (coloradoschoolgrades.com, click the report card link for each school). This story coming on the heels of Moffat County School District scoring in the bottom one percent statewide last year. This level of epic failure from an organization is caused by systemic management collapse and inferior leadership. Speaking with Sandy Johns the Moffat County School Board President recently, she stated that, “this is just a phase our schools are going through”.
The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank those that help animals in Moffat County.
It’s that time of year again. The time of year when thousands of greenclad girls set up shop in front of City Markets, Wal-Marts, and various other places of business to peddle their wares. I'm referring of course, to the Girl Scouts of America and their famous cookies. I love 'em. A box of thin mints and a tall glass of milk and I'm happy all day.
I give a standing ovation to all involved in the "The Pied Piper" production instructed by the Missoula Children's Theatre.
