Letters to the editor


The family of Roy Markham: Thank you for support

We would like to express a great appreciation for those who were so instrumental in Roy Markham’s care, especially in the last few months of his life.

Chris Welch: Draining the reservoir

Has Colorado Parks and Wildlife lost their minds? Not only is poisoning the fish and draining the reservoir absurd, it is irresponsible.

John Pogline: Elkhead issue is absurd

Well, it looks like Moffat County is in the bull’s-eye again. First it was the Yampa River, and now it’s Elkhead Reservoir. The U.S. Fish and Game Wildlife Service has destroyed the fishing for Moffat County in the Yampa River and now they want to do the same for us at Elkhead.

Larry Henderson: Leave our waters alone

Thanks for the update in the Saturday Morning Press concerning Elkhead Reservoir. I think this next fiasco concerning the Yampa River shows a lack of knowledge within our wildlife department regarding what actually goes on in Northwest Colorado.

Duane Koukol: The Little Shop

The front step, A loose one by 12. The door, turn and pick up.

Duane Koukol: A poem about Mauka: ‘The Little Shop’

The front step, A loose one by 12. The door, turn and pick up. The thought of a cold and empty coffee cup! Open and you shall see!

Carolyn Casinger: Thank you

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank the community of Craig and vicinity for its wonderful support of our annual bowling fundraiser.

Christian Montiel: Craig is great to visit

I was up in Craig recently with my Travel/Landscape class from Denver.

Allen Hischke: Attention fishermen

There is a plan underway to drain Elkhead Reservoir, poison it and kill every fish in the lake. This plan is coming from the people that have been killing the fish in the Yampa River for years.

Lynnette Running Siedschlaw: Good luck, Owen Grant

I am writing this letter to wish Owen Grant the best of luck in his retirement. It truly takes an extraordinary person to dedicate his life to such a career, especially the way you have done.

Jorgiea M. Raftopoulos: Thanks Miller Appliance

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris and Tammy at Miller Appliance for their extraordinary customer service.

Moffat County Farm Bureau Board: Luttrell Barn needs help

Having read articles and letters in the past concerning the Luttrell Barn and what to do with it and talking with community members, among them Dana Duran, Pam Foster, Melody Villard and Pat McCaffrey, who have been spearheading Saving the Barn, the Moffat County Farm Bureau Board would like to throw their support into this vital and worthwhile project.

Rod Kowach: Special Olympics success

Craig Special Olympics would like to thank the Colorado Cruisers, the proprietors of The O.P. Bar and Grill and those of you who participated in the July 19 Poker Run.

Gary Shepard: Thanks for the help

I would like to thank four young men: Isaac Montoya, Matthew Moschetti, Dalton Greenwood and Ryan Zimmerman.

Lorrie Butler: Ice cream lady to sleep

As school starts today. the ice cream lady will stop the daily routes. She will drive around town in the afternoons and be at Wyman Living History Museum on Sept. 13 for Sheep Wagon Days.
