I have lived in Craig for a little over nine years and have enjoyed every moment of it. We have a wonderful, giving and supportive community, which I am so proud to be a part of. I enjoy the day-to-day challenges the newspaper business provides, It is rewarding knowing we provide the community and our readers with the news which effects our lives in Craig/Moffat County. I have five children, Ashley, Brandon, Joshua, Jeremiah & Aubrey, and a son and daughter-in-law. Two grand babies, Shane & Sophie whom I adore. My husband Jim is an Electrician Supervisor at Twenty Mile Coal Company and is the best man I could have ever dreamt of. I am blessed in all areas of my life.

The Festival of Trees committee hosted a special event last Saturday at the courthouse. Ten kindergartner students from each elementary school were selected to have breakfast with Santa, based on their PAWs behavior and/or a school contest, according to the brochure for the event. McDonald's in Craig provided the children with a pancake breakfast and orange juice. Children also had an opportunity to speak to Santa about their Christmas wish list.
