Oh the birthday club....and when there was a fire or other emergency, I remember that he would walk up to the street (the old KRAI location is now a parking lot across from Conoco on Victory Way) and give a "play by play" on the action going on. Growing up in Craig as a kid, I lived very close to the station and would always wander over to peer in the mirrored windows, wondering how the heck he worked his radio magic (I found out many years later how it was all done).
RIP Dick, your powerful voice will always be remembered in this valley by those of us that were graced with listening to you.
Clarification of above post:
Go into the article that this thread is about. The three options are listed in the left column, C was the one voted on. Definitely better than the original plan, in my opinion.
The wife just returned from the meeting. Apparently they have voted on option C. You can find it just left of the above related article.
Doesn't matter anyway, the bill has been defeated.
I think this argument is kind of like when Wal-Mart moved into town. Any "mom and pops" close down because of them? Unless the convenience stores are going to greatly expand their line of product beyond cheap swill, I doubt there will be much worry. Convenience store prices for anything are jacked up pretty high, where this concern comes from baffles me.
Great, this is one of those things, as a father, that keeps me up at night. I am with you 100% vic, why can't Craig pull it's head out of the sand and ban sexual deviants from even living here? We make ordinances to control everything else, some inane things at that, why not perverts?
GlacierDragon, good advice and to further bolster your words of wisdom, and quoting the paper, it is imperative that you sit down with your kids tonight and talk with them on what to do if ever in this situation.
My challenge to the rest of this forum:
Instead of sitting behind your screen whining about the sky falling, the world coming to an end or what the hospital did today, why not get out and make a difference and do something worthwhile. I went out today after reading this to find my child to warn her and educate her on what to do. I then proceeded to just drive around, observing and watching at various schools within town. If more of us would get out and participate in protecting our most precious possessions in situations like this, these weirdos won't stand a chance of nabbing someones kid. I am assuming that the law does not have the manpower to patrol as I did not see one police unit at, or around, any of the schools I observed today...I did not make it out to Ridgeview so they may have been in that area. It is in my opinion that we as parents, citizens, loafers and internet whiners need to get out and help the police so that a tragedy does not occur, it will do you some good to unglue your fingers from the keyboard for a half an hour each day after school.
I, like most people, have a job and cannot do it everyday, however until this is resolved I will be out there if not needed at work and I encourage the rest of you to do the same. Watch the bus stops in your neighborhood, walk around the schools, carry your cell with you and if possible a camera to maybe catch a photo of suspicious vehicle or license plate, anything to help the law bring this to an end. I for one am tired of this crap and am going to try to make a small difference whether anyone else deems it worthy or not. I am not a vigilante and am not stupid enough to approach or confront a mentally twisted individual, however, rest assured if I see something I will call it in and I will follow them until apprehended. This cannot happen in our town and maybe I'm overreacting but when it comes to the safety of our children, there is no overreacting.
That's strange, my daughter is being taught cursive...in public school...right now. It's a tough venture, and I will agree with the critical thinking comment about it, however, what would be the use of it when 90% of your work comes from a keyboard? Welcome to the 21st century.
I'm beginning to wonder if un-gluing yourself from the TV & internet and going outside for some sunshine and fresh air might do you some good.
Thanks Oliver21 for some very useful info. Not to circumvent your link, but here is a direct link to picture and description...for those pc challenged readers:
I have two of these "people" living in my neighborhood, and I know who they are and where they live. Diligence and keeping an eye out, along with frequent checking of the Police and Sheriff websites to keep up on them is important. I might go as far as to print their pics and info and post it on the fridge so my child can see and know who they are as well. Knowledge is power, take advantage of what we are given to teach our children.
I sent one in to Leno once, right from our own Daily Press here in Craig America, complete with a local phone # (can't remember what it was):
Bobcats frozen whole
Please call xxx-xxxx"
I thought it was funny, Leno never aired it as far as I know.
I would never own one of those death traps, too many people I know have either been hurt or killed on one.
I could care less if you go off road and act the fool, that is what they are designed for, I have done it in the past with some of those same friends, OFF ROAD, that's the difference.
So whats next? Carrying guns around like back in the old west? Snowmobiles? Landing your ultralight or personal helicopter on your street so you can "go to the store" or "a mile and a half to work"? Watercraft in the wave pool? Why not, give one special interest group their rights, might as well give everyone else what they want, right? Forget the citizens who will have to watch out for you(AND everyhting else already out there), forget the citizens who may be innocently hurt or killed by your selfishness, forget everyone....."I want to do what I want". Typical mentality of a special interest group, it's all about them, the rest of the citizens(the other 8,750 of us), who I am speaking of, are the ones who lose.
Leave ATV's to be used where they already are, the Sandrocks, Jeep runs, Sandwash and wherever there are less people and less traffic to deal with, which is 98% of Moffat County, the second LARGEST county in Colorado. THAT is where the selfish comes in, 98% of a large county is yours to do "whatever you want", leave the 2% of the city alone.
That ol' grandma saying comes up once again...give them an inch, they will take a mile.
