Letters to the editor


Paula Sadvar: Support local cancer patient

Jerry Pritchard is battling cancer. He is a longtime resident and friend of Craig. An account has been set up at the Bank of the West in his name.

Joe Livingston: Clean water

The 42nd Anniversary of the Clean Water Act is a time for pause and celebration.
In the height of this crazy political season, it’s good to remember that clean, safe water is one of those rare apolitical issues.

John and Doris Zimmerman: Political sign stolen

Someone came onto our private property and stole our “Cory Gardener for U.S. Senate” sign. This sign was in our driveway at 855 County Rd. 30.

John Cannon-Petoskey: Craig Chamber is great

A Michigan resident had a good experience getting hunting information from the local chamber.

Cindy Morris: TMH was nice, helpful

I recently had a carpal tunnel operation at The Memorial Hospital in Craig. Prior to the operation I was feeling nervous; I hadn’t been operated on since I had appendicitis at age 13. From the moment I entered the hospital, I was treated with professionalism and kindness.

Brad Goldsmith: Noise ordinance?

I thought there was a noise ordinance in town? I should not have to hear from my house every time one of these kids in a diesel truck takes off from every red light in town or all night long they race through town.

Don Smith
: Community fellowship

In the evening of Thursday many of us were able to experience first hand the camaraderie of our fellow golfers when an elderly man suddenly collapsed at the doorway of the Yampa Valley Golf Course. The gentleman was standing around chatting about his round of golf and the fact that he was getting ready to head to Arizona for the winter when he unexpectedly fell to the floor, and right away everyone sprang into action following every protocol for an emergency to a T.

Lois Stoffle: Thanks for parade visit

I would like to thank the “powers that be” at the Moffat County High School for having the homecoming parade make it all the way up to Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab last Friday.

Nick Rubley: Draining Elkhead, Part 2

I would like to talk about wolves. You may think that this has nothing to do with endangered fish, but it does. Let me explain. In the early 1990s, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reintroduced 15 wolves into the Lamar Valley in Yellowstone National Park. There are now an estimated 1,700 animals in five states, including Colorado.

Taylor Fredrickson: County jail defies ACLU

I am writing this in regards to the story from Wednesday concerning Moffat County Jail and its decision to continue to do illegal ICE holds even after confirming to the ACLU they would no longer participate in said holds.

Jody and Red Lee and Alvin Luker: Thank you

The Moffat County 4-H Sharp Shooters Club — consisting of the .22 small bore rifle, .22 small bore pistol, air pistol and rifle teams — would like to express our thanks to the following individuals and organizations for their assistance and support, without which the youth shooters would not have had the opportunity to attend the 4-H National Invitational in Grand Island, Nebraska, or the state of Colorado 4-H state shooting competition in Pueblo.

Beth Gilchrist: It takes a village

The Northwest Colorado Chapter of Parrotheads would like to thank our village for their support in our sixth annual Phun Phall Phestival, Art’n the Park’n Lot.
We appreciate Craig Daily Press and KRAI & 55 Country Radio for spreading the word to their readers and listeners about our event.

Matt Winey: Wake up

Should it be the federal government deciding the fate of our coal industry and the fish we have in the Yampa River or should it be our choice? This country was built on the American dream and personal freedom.

Carolyn Casinger: Thank you for hosting

The Humane Society of Moffat County would like to thank the Thunder Rolls Bowling Center for hosting our first annual Bowling Fundraiser. They did a fabulous job.

N. McStay: Swinging Bridge concerns

Recently, our family went out to the Browns Park area. We noticed that there is still a “bridge closed” sign to the Swinging Bridge. What is going on?
