It was Friday morning, shortly after the start of another day at Sunset Elementary School, when Craig Daily Press Publisher Bryce Jacobson marched into Cheryl Arnett’s second-grade classroom. Jacobson, accompanied by a phalanx of Moffat County educators and community members, extended a bouquet of balloons toward Arnett. Arnett’s students were huddled cross-legged on the floor in the midst of a lesson. One of them spoke. “Is it your birthday?” the student asked Arnett.
