Harold and Joan Bates: Christmas poem

This poem was in a Christmas card we received from a veteran. Thought it would be nice to share with your readers, with hopes it will help in some small way!

Warren Marc Erickson and Carla Clement: Thank you

The family of Berchia Erickson would like to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Kafuuma, Dr. McClanahan, Megan, RN; Clara, RN; Mei, RN; Noah, RN; Aubrey, RN; Jasmine, CNA; Christalin, CNA; Morgan, CNA; Rose, CNA; Kyra, CNA; the staff working in the ER when she was brought in and the support staff at The Memorial Hospital and TMH Medical Clinic. We are so grateful for the comfort and care you gave to her during her last days with us.

Luke Tucker: I believe in Moffat County

We voted down Amendment 66, where we recognized the need for more funding but didn’t like everything that came with the tax. Bravo! I, too, am a proud fiscal conservative who is against new taxes. My hope, however, is that a vote against 66 wasn’t a vote against fixing the problems that face our schools, but a battle cry, “we will do this ourselves!”

Colette Arnold: Christmas for Seniors

Thank you from Sandrock Ridge Rehab & Care for all the volunteers that made the Seniors Christmas a great one this year. It is so wonderful to see the community care so much for our residents. They had such a great time. Our staff also enjoyed it.

Shelia Rene Littlehawk-Calicurua: Protect sage grouse

Our wildlife and the habitat they need is increasingly under threat. Right now, the greater sage grouse needs our protection.

Interfaith Food Bank: Thanks for food donations

The Interfaith Food Bank of Craig would like to thank KRAI Radio for hosting the food and toy drive. We would also like to thank all the members of our community who donated so generously to Moffat County agencies.

The volunteers of the Humane Society of Moffat County: Humane Society help

The volunteers at the Humane Society of Moffat County would like to take a moment and explain who we are and what we do. F

Steve and Tracey Lathrop: Thanks for the help

Drake (Red Cross) Animal Control officer, our incredibly loving family (you know who you are!) and generous friends and neighbors. My husband and I are so very grateful for all of you, your hard work, and the instantaneous response of this amazing community in general.

Santa: Thank you

I would like to take a moment to thank a few people for their help during the past few weeks. First to all my friends and family that help with the float for the Parade of Lights: Jack, George, Karen, Kathy, Craig, Rhonda, Stan, Lance, Laurie, Cody, Olivia, Coley, Sean, Bud and Mrs. C. Thank you all.

Edward and Mary: Thanks VFW

We would like to thank the VFW Post No. 4265. Steve Klein, you’re great. Johnny and Cookie and everyone else that called, stopped by and helped while I was going through my battle with cancer.

Jennifer Hume: Enter front door

Moffat County has worked hard to implement new security measures designed to keep our children as safe as possible. School safety has been in the forefront of everyone’s minds given the events of the past 10-plus years. But safety is not just about “threats,” it also is about health and welfare.

Museum of Northwest Colorado: Thanks Ken Wergin

The staff at the Museum of Northwest Colorado would like to express our deep appreciation to Ken Wergin, dedicated citizen and volunteer extraordinaire.

Delaine Voloshin: Visit courthouse

I would like to encourage our community to see the beautiful Christmas trees on display on the main floor of the Moffat County Courthouse. The trees are interpretations of movie themes, including the Grinch, Snoopy, the nativity story, “Polar Express” and more. There are approximately 25 trees, decorated by various, very creative, nonprofit organizations. Cheers to Moffat County United Way and the Moffat County High School Student Council for sponsoring this event.

Jay Oxley: Thank you Shell

The Marianna Raftopoulos Business Incubator Center is pleased to receive a $10,000 grant from Shell. Our partnership with Shell will provide staff and volunteer education and developing a solid marketing plan. These are two components of a strong foundation for our Business Center.
