Colette Arnold: Thank you for charity

Duane Koukol: Goodbye, Joe

Many years ago with a little help from a friend, We piled in the old blue van. She said she knew where Joe lived. We first stopped in Crawford, a little restaurant. It was Joe’s place. We asked the waitress, with a smile, “Is Joe in?” She said she hadn’t seen him in a while.

Antone LeBlanc: In memory of Grandpa

In 1906, Dr. Aldis Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. That was the day I got my name, but, unlike you, that was not also the day I was born.

Carol J. Sloan: A gift for my Lord

I’m under the impression that as long as I state this is my own personal belief and in my opinion this will be printed in our paper. So, I just want to share a story about me, my belief and thoughts, this holiday season. I am one that wants and believes in keeping Christ in Christmas. Jesus is my lord and savior.

Matt Winey: Public land debate

One of the silliest things I have ever read was just in the Saturday edition of our local Craig Daily Press. The silliness was from someone who apparently does not understand the type of government that made this nation what it is today or did she seem to understand why the elected officials who believed the federal government should be “all” powerful were just defeated soundly in the 2014 midterm elections.

NOWECOS: Raffle thanks

The Northwest Colorado Snowmobile Club (NOWE-COS) thanks the following Craig merchants for allowing the club to sell raffle tickets at their establishments: Centennial Mall Craft Show, City Market, MJK Sales & Feed, Inc., Murdoch’s Ranch & Home Supply and Walmart.

The Brent Barnes family: Thanks from our hearts

We would like to take a moment to say thanks to the Craig and Hayden communities for all the support and prayers that we received in our time of sorrow. You can’t imagine how much it meant to us.

P.E.O. Chapter AJ: Thank you!

We wish to give a huge thanks to the following people. Homeowners who welcomed the community to enjoy their holiday decorations: Elaine Deupree, Shane and Shelly Wilson, Bernie and Judy Espinoza, Joel and Janet Sheridan, Marcus and Karen Cuevas.

Curtice, Gerber, George, et. all: Let’s stay positive

This year, a small group of individuals from a variety of businesses and industries began meeting to discuss how we could begin impacting the culture of our community in a positive way.

St. Michael’s Alter and Rosary Society: Thank you for donations

St. Michael’s Alter and Rosary Society would like to thank the business and community members who so graciously gave donations for our annual bazaar.

Mike Albee: Not to worry

A few weeks ago during the cold spell, my heating system quit working, which was problematic considering it is a rare type of system in this community.

CMEDP: Dismayed by Daily Press editorial

Craig Moffat Economic Development Partnership Board and Executive Director were dismayed to read the Dec. 6 editorial titled “EDP and businesses need to take action.”

Todd Schayes: Playing with class

I wanted to thank Coach Hamilton, the Moffat County boys basketball team and the whole Moffat County community for attending our season opening tournament last weekend.

Gail Canto: Our loved one

Recently, my husband and I had pleasurably been caring for my late father-in-law Mr. Emanuel Robert Canto in our home and put both our self-employment businesses on hold.
