Alcohol should be served at all events. It's part of our culture. If you don't like it, leave. We've been doing it this way for a hundred years...why change now? Besides....Drunk people passed out at ball games give the kids an opportunity to make some extra money by rolling them. Seriously, though--The kids are the ones who this is about. Why not ask them what they want? It should be up to them because it has everything to do with them. It has nothing to do with us adults and I think is should be all about the kids.

way to get on top of the story. didn't the commisioners reach a decision last week with the vender to not sale alcohol before 6:00pm on nights of youth play? I've got next weeks poll ready for you. Should there be alcohol served at a family event like wittlle the wood?

I don't know if alcohol was actually served there but there was certainly enough brought by the attendees. If fact... some of the folks that represent C.O.M.A.- Communities overcoming Meth Abuse was there handing out Jell-O shots. They looked really cool in front of their kids! The best part though was when the drunk guy threw his box of beer into the air and watched it slam down on to the pavement by the food concessions. I am shocked it didn't hit anyone....then of course our local officers were right there making him pick up the broken glass as he fell face first onto the pavement. They also made him dump out the rest of what he had.....good job city P.D., bad job Craig drunks! I wasn't going to go this year just because of all the drunks but it was as fun to watch the carvers. From what we could hear of the music it was good. We couldn't see anything because of all the jerks that set up shade tents up front. If you can't handle sitting out in the sun, then don't go. I heard a lot of complaints from people in the back part of the park that couldn't see anything but tents. If you need shade, put your tent in the back or sit under a tree.

Wow!! talk about bored and need something to talk about....Whittle the Wood is a great thing for Craig!! I am guessing the rec center and the whittle the wood statements are made about the guy who kinda heads up the whittle the wood....well my opinion is good for him! He does something for the people and kids around here....have you two?? I just love griping coming from those who can always find a complaint but have little to say for solutions....what would you two brilliant minds have kids do here besides a rec center??! Truly waiting to hear....sitting on the edge of my seat! LOL ya right...some of us have to enjoy life, complaining is left for those who just cant I guess..

I wish you could hear my tears, your soooo right drinking in front of your kids is a good thing, I will go hide now that you have proven your point so well. read some other pages dingle berry and you will find that we have spoken many times on things to do besides drink in front of your kids. how about get them out of the house and do anything with them. seems like this started out about the fact that the county commissioners already came out with a answer last week about the survey the paper is asking this week. I guess you can't tell the differance from a smart ass and a dumb ass.

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

oh but I can I definitely know which one you are.....obviously you cant read I never said drinking in front of your kids is ok!! DUH!! I said quit complaining! I could care less if you cry or what you think I am just sick of your complaining post..I notice they are on here under a nickname and not in the paper....oh your concern is so heart warming!! Whatever I dont care you mean less than nothing to me.

whos holding a gun to your head making you read it? while your at it crawl off Dave Pikes leg and read something because you once again prove what catagory your in. I will paint you a picture. Two weeks ago there was an artical about people drinking at loudy simpson during the youth games, yelling at the umps and throwing general fits. last week the county commisioners decided that there would be no alcohol sales until after six pm. Now this week the daily press comes out with a survey asking the above question. I don't know if the county commisioner ever read this but they already took an action. Wouldn't it be better if the paper was say a week ahead on a queston like this? now I said that next weeks question will be about whittle the wood. Get it? a week after the event has already taken place. So some people want to put in a rec center to curb teenage drinking and then go to a comunity event and drink in front of kids. Proving once again that they are not leading by example. As for comunity service I don't need to raise your kids. I've raised mine without them becoming drunken aholes Without your help and by being a part of thier lives, so if I want to take a few minutes whenever I want and write then I will.

I am not going to argue you are not worth it and I am well aware of the Loudy issue I agree its not good, however it takes a village.....also I dont appreciate your foul language save it for your kids maybe they enjoy it...I dont.

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

oh and your comment about Dave proves what an ignorant person you are...I commend him for Little League, Doak Walker, Whittle the Wood, Craig 100 year celebration!! Way to go Dave!! Walking the walk and talking the talk and doing it all very humbly I might add....

0

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

You can consider me ignorant all you want but the fact is you brought up Dave I didn't. This whole thing was about the paper being a week behind on an issue. Is that making sense to you yet? Dave Pike is a completely seperate issue. Whos said one word here about what hes done? Stuff your village and keep it out of my backyard. Two parents and responsable teaching is what raises kids. Not a village villages are what take away parents right to raise their children as they see fit. I really don't care if you like my language its not your job to police it go talk to someone whos politically correct enough to care. speaking of ignorant how did you spend your economic stimulus check?

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

oh my gosh whatever....you are so random and all over the place with your comments. My check huh that would be some more of your business....and as for two parents raising kids, have at it!! there are alot of single parents who do great jobs, grandparents etc....you seem to pick on every group out there!! Thats ok I can take your slams and rough words...I am not miserable in my life I have good kids and friends who have good kids and we all help each other!! I dont understand the comment of hippies and such, it just seems you are not happy with anyone person out there not even yourself and if you are so smart than more power to you, God bless you and yours or Im sorry is religion and God something you hate also!! Have a great day!

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

oh and almost forgot....the Craig Daily Press is your backyard huh? gee I hope they know that its all yours and you can say what you want but the next person cant....freedom of speech, press and opinion! The American way...oh ya another group you hate, Im sure.

0

redneckgirl 5 years, 10 months ago

Wow...how did the topic of religion come into this? Aaaaawwww...50cal is not such a big bad naughty person just because he/or she reflects their opinion on here. Your guess on our comments relating to the person that handles both whittle the wood & the rec center was not a very good guess. You came to that assumption all by yourself-you were the first one that threw the name on the table. So...I am pretty sure I have been in towns where they had a rec center and guess what........yep, there were still kids doing naughty little things in those towns. I guess signing up for senior swimnastics with grandma just didn't get their attention enough to not go out and party. Call it complaining, venting, stating opinion.......call it what ever you want but it's our CHOICE to complain, vent and state our opinions. It's your choice to read it.

yes lets let the kids make the decisions, do you know an eightteen year old who doesn't know it all already? maybe they should start running for office as well.

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

no once again your the one off base, I have and still would fight for anyones right to ALL the freedoms enjoyed by this country. I made a comment about the newspaper being behind, you couldn't figure that out so I'm ignorant. you brought up Dave Pike I didn't so I'm ignorant. you still don't seem to get it. I don't like the era of free love that brought the current generation of lawmakers into power in washington (they were hippies) and now the youngest generation is just selfish enough to almost qualify as the next generation. My father always said God help us when this generation gets into power and that has proven correct. Now this new one will be in power when I'm retired so god help my generation.Your stimulas check is none of my business. Just would like to know that way I can tell you that somehow my ignorant butt made enough to not qualify for a stimulas check. somehow I manage to employ ten people in this local economy who make between $70,000 to $90,000 per year have 401K ahealth dental and vision insurance. those employees are locals who will not be affected by the boom bust cycle we've all seen before and those local employees in turn spend a good deal of their money locally, so you don't know what I contribute to this community. If you can't figure out a good joke with a serious issue under it that is your problem. At least I know I made one other person laugh and thats good enough for me.

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

sorry for the misunderstanding...just kinda over complaining is all. If you were offended sorry for that. You are not the only one not getting a stimulus check and I would like to think I do enough to qualify also. Again have a great day!

I will get on the brighter side and explain this a little better. The daily press is doing a survey about something that has already happened. So I became a smart ass about it. Notice that I put in there should alcohol be served? NO one was serving but I thought it would serve the purpose of showing that at a community event where people should be able to take their kids for a fun event without having to steer them away from the negitive affects of watching adults drink way too much. at the same time we are having serious dicussions about needing a rec center so kids won't drink. Thats kinda a double negitive. it worries me that the parents (not all) are expecting the community to do something that they are not doing themselves. Whittle the wood is one of the best things put on by the city of Craig. I just wish you could take the kids there without having to explain why someone has dragged their living room furniture onto the grass in the park and is now puking all over themselves. The paper if it cares should have been out with a survey before hand. and please just because I want to make someone laugh in the process do not assume I am ignorant. there are two very nice women who write on this forum that I always try to make laugh. I've got to so we keep our sanity.

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

thanks for explaining....I just think we need something for the kids and it may not keep them all out of trouble but some it will, or that is my opionion and I guess I took what you were saying out of context. Thanks again.

"It has nothing to do with us adults and I think is should be all about the kids."--comment from trout2k. How can you say it has nothing to do with "us" adults when we are the one's (as parents) that have to either pay for it either with tax increases or pay for the cost of using a facility. The movie theater, bowling, city pool....it all costs money to go to those places. Some people can afford those things, and some cannot. My kids would love to be able to ride their motocross bikes every single day but with the price of gas and the yearly charge for the dirt bike track....I can't afford it if they want to eat too (teenage boys eat too much). Yes, I think it should be something that a kid would consider fun but ask a kid what he considers fun these days. I am betting it would contain the words X-box, PS3, Wii, i-pod or computer in it somewhere. We have a generation of children that have massive electronic addictions. I'm not saying every kid has that but just as a generation in whole. I realize it's the parents' jobs to monitor such things but to many parents it's a babysitter. But, "it has nothing to do with us adults".

oh my goodness I have to get out more. I did'nt even know they sold alcohol and there was a problem at Loudy Simpson. Whatever happened to responsible adults sneaking in a thermos full of whiskey.
before anyone gets upset, I think 50cal will get the humor and Igmillernl will not

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

Oh I love it, I read the paper, Get frustrated and then comes someone to make me laugh. Once again thanks for the start of a great day.

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

so I was going to just ignore ignorance but I guess I was in the right mood....I wrote a comment because it seemed like there was alot of griping and complaining and yikes it was like pouring gas on a fire...it has nothing to do with my sense of humor...do I think kids drinking is ok ABSOLUTELY NOT, but I choose to live in reality and accept it will happen and contrary to anyones belief on here I have good kids and they are not alcoholic aholes as I think it was so put on here. I am just saying unless you are a solution to a problem you only add to the drama and nightmare of it when all you choose to do is complain. Excuse me for obviously crossing into a private forum only to be used my unhappy and complaining people..MY BAD. As I stated earlier may God bless you all, I choose to be happy, see the good in people and take a stand of complaining and band wagon jumping, soap box whatever you want to call it when I have exhausted all my abilities to make it better....and laugh every chance I get!!

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

funny how we are all laughing and your not . Whos happy? NO ONE said your kids were aholes, you've got a complex problem. it wasn't personal get over yourself. I can't believe you couldn't see from the beginning that people were having a little fun. I don't think that even though you have been told that three times you willl get it. Because even though you still don't get it we are ignorant again.

0

lgmillernl 5 years, 10 months ago

"I've raised mine without them becoming drunken aholes" look above and you will see you wrote this I copied and pasted it.....I wasnt directing this to you but the person who questioned my "sense of humor" but whatever .......I do not care I know who I am, what I do and what I believe and that is to see good in every person...even you. I thought you and I had come to an I see your side thing or I had for you..you explained it great!! Maybe I am not the only one with a complex, huh?!

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

well you called her ignorant, and i did raise mine without them becoming drunken aholes, sorry if others can't do the same. we have come to an understanding you take everything serious and the rest of us don't. this isn't a private forum but watch enough people come in here with the idea that they are the only ones who are right and you come up with two solutions one, you take everything seriously and get mad and throw fits or two, you make a snide remark and see who takes the bait, I like fishing. I love fishing I might even drink a beer when I'm fishing, I have two kids who are over twenty one, sometimes they drink a beer with me when were fishing but if my eighteen year old thinks about it then the house will come down. I face reality as well,. families have rules you don't break the rules then everything is fine. such is life until you die. So you wrote that you have good kids and you don't think they are alcoholic aholes, you didn't copy and paste that from me you paraphrased me. this was still not a complaint it was a funny, you wrote again that you saw it as a complaint. So again you took the bait, and to you I say happy fishing and to craig_gal I say shes had really good luck with her lure.

Igmillernl, I will refer you to the open thread portion of the forums. once you go there look up recycling center and read that you will see how we play on this sometimes. Or go see the one about renaming the hospital.

freeman 5 years, 10 months ago

as for the no alcohol sales that everyone wants ,this weekend at all the tripple crown games that brought in 60+ teams from all over the country,8 to 12 year old games that played all weekend had drunken ass people all over loudy park,three people getting thrown out of the park,two men fighting over two young girls who played longer then one another,one drunk mormon from utah who threw a drink in the concession stand all over a womans face,two young adults who stole a bag of money from the tripple crown attendant who was keeping score and selling shirts,hats and etc.......now does anyone want to comment on that???????mixed drinks ,draft beer,canned beer all of the above is still selling faster than a commissioner can decide??????

0

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

Yes I would, isn't it a grand thing that this is just natures way of sorting it out? afterall we have to live in reality and weather we like it or not this is going to happen. I've been converted Igmillernl won me over there is nothing we can do but build a rec center and pray to god this works itself out. I will have to get down there sounds like I missed the party, I hope next year for some dancing girls as well.

freeman 5 years, 10 months ago

50CAL-sounds like you are one heck of a great person.like the way you pute things into perspective.it was one heck of a great time,would of loved some dancing girls.i really hope this rec center works out well for the kids.they need a great place to go and mingle.lived in this town since 61,have seen alot of changes.mostly good and hope it continues in that direction.....ALSO COULD USE A ADULT REC CENTER TO ........ RIGHT

50cal 5 years, 10 months ago

Man I don't know what I was thinking, we could have friday night fights at loudy simpson. I think we could set up a boxing ring out behind the bathrooms. Charge a fee, sell some alcohol and wait for the parents to get miffed. Dancing girls could hold up the round cards just like Vegas. We could take the fees and put them into a general account for an adult rec center.
