David Moore 3 months ago on Suzanne Meyer: Appalled at newspaper

I did not know this either until recently. My mother passed away in December, she did not live here but the newspaper in her community, in which she lived most of her 81 years, charged me $250 for her obituary, which I wrote. It was two small paragraphs and a photo, took up about 1/8 of a page. Had I put 4 more words in, it would have been $500. I was floored. I think a nominal fee, maybe $25-$50 would be reasonable, but the exorbitant amount papers charge to advertise death is ridiculous. Good letter, I am with you.

Hoping things improve for her and she comes out OK.

With that, what is it going to take to get people to wear their seatbelts?? The drivers compartment is what you can see in the photo, looks like it is not too badly damaged from this perspective and she may have walked away with much less severe injuries had she had her seatbelt on.

It's just common sense....seatbelts save lives.

How about a new spot for that great French Bistro? They could use more space and to be a bit more centrally located has to be a plus.


David Moore 6 months, 2 weeks ago on French restaurant debuts in Craig

Being that I am 50% French, oddly until I met my 100% French mother a year ago, I never have had French food. We have now been here twice and all I can say is that I have loved every bite. The food is delicious, the service is spot on and the atmosphere is quite nice, we have spoken with the owners both times and they seem genuinely happy to be here.

Some tips if I may: Prepare to stay awhile, this is not a fast food joint, this is real French quality. Plan on 90 minutes in the least. The servers do not annoy you, as they usually do, asking every 4 minutes if everything is ok. They leave you to enjoy your food. This is how service should be. If you want something, motion for them to come over and they will be glad to help you. No, they do not have a burger for the kiddies, this is French food, not Americanized French food. If the kids won't eat it, leave them at home.

Give it a try, I have yet to hear anyone complain and everyone is smiling, and full, when they leave. The prices are very reasonable however I suggest stopping by and making a reservation, they are quite busy and were turning people away because they have no room. I estimate they can seat around 30-35 max. I am so happy to finally have something new, and original in town aside from the same ol' thing day in and day out, I have found a new food home for sure, it's in the blood. Welcome to Craig Fraikin's, I hope it is a very long relationship.
