Judi Whilden
: Thank you

Big thanks to McDonald’s of Craig for helping our fundraiser be a success. On Wednesday Colorado Northwestern Community College had a fundraiser for their Early Childhood Education Scholarship fund.

Bob Amick: Broadband vote vital

The Broadband Ballot Issue 1A in Rio Blanco is a critically important measure before Rio Blanco County Voters for a variety of beneficial reasons including economic development, heritage and agritourism, public education, high-quality entertainment and much more.

Rich Deakins: Help local

Darryl Deakins, who was born and raised in Craig, was seriously injured Oct. 24.

Benjie Robinson: Support medical pot

I am writing this letter to encourage the citizens of Craig and Moffat County to vote “yes” on ballot measure 1A. It will allow for the cultivation of cannabis within the boundaries of unincorporated Moffat County. Let me provide you with some information to help you make your decision for voting “yes” on this measure.

John Williams: Political concerns

I am sure most will agree that Sen. Nancy Pelosi and Sen.Harry Reid are two of the largest stumbling blocks for action that we face in Congress.

Melissa Dowd
and Blaine Prieur: Thank you, Roy

I would like to express my sincerest gratitude to Roy McAnally and American Northwest Realty for helping us find and purchase a new home.

Marek Skupienski: Bad accident turned good

On Oct. 13, at 4:40 a.m., on U.S. Highway 40 a few miles east of Craig. All of a sudden, a collision. I am startled, though unharmed; the big, black bear is dead, lying in the middle of the road; my car is totaled. The police, the Colorado State Patrol and the DOW arrive shortly thereafter to confirm the obvious.

Lawrence L. Sober: Great documentary

On the evening of Oct. 16, the local tea party showed a recent documentary film about the situation on our southern border. This film was so up to date and informative that I would recommend local groups to make an effort to see it.

Laurence L. Sober: Political thoughts

Both Democrats and Republicans say that this country is broke. And we can no longer help our own citizens, veterans, seniors, orphans or homeless families. Yet we have an open border policy in this country.

Duzik, Shaffer, Wright and Norman: Honoring the 70th

Thanks to all our friends and family for honoring our parents on their 70th wedding anniversary by attending, giving cards and sending well wishes.

Gale and Lois Norman: 70th celebration success

We want to thank everyone who made our 70th wedding anniversary such a special day.

Paula Sadvar: Fundraiser for Pritchard

Paula Sadvar and Vallarta’s will be hosting a fundraising dinner for Jerry Pritchard from 5 to 7 p.m Thursday.

Susan Baird: Great group of teens

I was happy to see an article in the Oct. 15 edition highlighting a great group of Moffat County teens and their presentation of two portable breath-testing kits to the Craig Police Department at the last Craig City Council Meeting.
