Letters to the editor


Rick Holford: KRAI drive was a success!

This year's drive was only two days but the generosity of the people of Craig and Moffat County was outstanding and it was worth the effort that was put forth. Representatives from all of the organizations who benefited from the donations for anyone in need were great to work with as well as the volunteers who assist every year.

Lois Stoffle: Parade of Lights event was beautiful

What a beautiful Parade of Lights! The lighting, the music, the floats — all of it — what a way to welcome in the Christmas spirit And a BIG “Thank You” to the organizers and participants who so graciously took the parade up Ledford Street past the senior housing, Sunset Meadows, and up on to Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab Center. The residents of both facilities thoroughly enjoyed watching the magic unfold! Thank you so much!

John Pogline: Overton’s letter was spot on about Swinging Bridge

Thank you Mr. Overton for opening our eyes. I agree completely with you.

Cory Overton: Make Dickinson pay for all Swinging Bridge costs

This debacle over the swinging bridge should not be what it is. T. Wright Dickinson should be held accountable for his and his employees actions.

Lois Stoffle: Cooking class fun

I recently signed up to take a “Cooking Class.” I’ve been married almost 55 years, have cooked literally thousand of meals for family and friends, but found it difficult to cook for one! And so, when the Senior Social Center was offering a “Cooking Class for One or Two,” I thought I’d give it a try.

Kathy Bockelman: Thank you for support

Advocates-Crisis Support Services (ACSS) would like to say “thank you” to all of the organizations and businesses that supported our Take a Stand Against Domestic Violence event held on Oct. 22. The event was a great success which brought awareness to many in our community of the signs to recognize, the ways to prevent and the steps you can take to stop domestic violence. Everyone who attended the event had a very positive response.

Vicki Barron: Hospice volunteers are special souls

If you know a hospice volunteer, you know they are exceptionally caring, compassionate and dedicated people. Hospice volunteers often have experienced the death of a loved one, or other kind of life-changing loss; they know how much the support of someone who understands means in a time of crisis.

Duane Koukol: A poem called ‘White Cross Stones’

A poem honoring veterans.

Verleen Tucker: Still searching for MIA veteran

Norman never made it to shore. He has been listed as MIA ever since. A white military headstone commemorates his life in the Craig Cemetery.
