It was a Thursday in late January when Betsy Nauman Cook received a phone call from Dave Fleming, chairman of Craig/Moffat Economic Development Partnership hiring committee. A few days earlier, Cook powered through a second round of interviews with Fleming, and EDP members Scott Cook, Mike Anson and Gene Bilodeau. She was competing against four other director candidates, a position vacated in November 2011 by Darcy Owens-Trask. Cook was not feeling her best. In fact, she lost her voice before the interview was finished.
