Letters to the editor


The Kenneth Conrad Hazelbaker family:

Thank you so much to everyone who provided support and compassion after Conrad (Conch) passed away so suddenly.

Craig Marshall Smith: I am Craig

Editor’s note: This column was sent to Craig Mayor Terry Carwile from Craig Marshall Smith in Douglas County. Carwile gave it to Daily Press Managing Editor Noelle Leavitt Riley for publication. Both Carwile and Leavitt Riley found it amusing and interesting to see what outsiders think of Craig.

Eagle’s Nest Preschool Staff: Thank you

We would like to thank Melanie Franklin along with her two capable assistants, Samantha and Amanda Franklin, for their dental presentation at our preschool.

Cherie Blomquist: A slap in the face to local teachers

With all of the budget talks going on with Moffat County School District and all the rumors mulling around, I was wondering how a "broke" district can send its principals to a hiring fair out of state for three days?

Duane Koukol: A poem: ‘Go Yee Dogs’

Onward, dogs of battle.

Dick Prosence
: Climate change farce

In his State of the Union address earlier this month, President Obama stated, “no challenge poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change.”

F. Neil Folks: Cutting the ‘fat’

Perceptions can be devious. They all depend on from which viewpoint one is standing on viewing the world. Each of us will read the budget or listen to the presenters of the budget from our own perspective, from our basis of experience.

Duane Koukol: A poem for Issik

A poem for Issik.

Melody Villard, Beth Gilchrist, Diane Brannan, MaryBea and family: An amazing community

As event organizers, you always hope that your event is successful. We think we found the secret. We focused our event on a woman with a kind heart, a generous spirit and a faithful soul.

Jobeth Haydon-Tupa: School board meeting

I was among those who attended Thursday’s school board budget meeting. After four hours of listening to MCSD staff members, one thing became blatantly obvious; the meeting to “discuss” the district’s current budget crisis was not for that purpose at all.

Larry and Sharon Pletcher: Thanks to local business

We find huge benefits dealing with our local businesses and here is an example just this week.

Nick Rubley: Draining Elkhead

I would like to commend and thank the CPW for opening up to the public. I hope they listened to some of the logic I heard in the room. I also would like to thank the Craig Daily Press for the article the very next day.

Family of Doug Grinolds: Our deepest thanks

We want to give a sincere thank you to all of our friends, relatives and the community for the outpour of sympathy after the passing of Doug.

Evelyn Tileston: About MMR vaccines

These days there is a lot of controversy about the measles mumps rubella vaccine for children. Some parents think it causes autism so they choose not to vaccinate their children.

Israeli Prime Minister

Inviting Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to address the Congress of the United States appeared to be a brilliant, political move.
