Harlan 2 years, 6 months ago on Letter: College student searching for employment

Hi AJ, Here are a few things that aren't mentioned in the comments above and I hope they provide you with some helpful ideas when approaching a business for work. 1. Always arrive clean and dressed for the type of work the business conducts. 2. If you have piercings, remove them for purposes of doing business. 3. Express a willingness to work whatever hours and days are needed. 4. Be polite and smile. 5. Ask questions that show you have an interest in the business where you are applying. 6. Always send a hand written thank you note to anyone who has given you an interview. (it makes them think twice)

These tips are not meant to insult you, but are offered with the supportive intent of helping you. Don't give up. Something will surely come your way. Best wishes AJ

Harlan 2 years, 6 months ago on Editorial: The great land grift

I find humor in the general opinions of the facilities. Both CNCC and the hospital make a big deal about how tobacco use and smoking are not permitted on their property; yet they both support a smoke producing facility in the same location. Can somebody explain that one?

Harlan 2 years, 6 months ago on TMH tobacco-free policy revised

The Tobacco Taliban has decided that adults are not allowed to make their own choices. It’s very simple. I would also suggest that they remove bacon and other fatty foods from the hospital grounds. Heck, while they are at it, white sugar, soft drinks, and potato chips should be expelled. How can they DARE endorse unhealthy eating habits, or worse yet, feed their own patients that stuff?

Harlan 3 years, 4 months ago on Irene Beard: Too much criticizing

I do not, nor have I ever owned a small business in Craig. Some of what is written here is true. However, Has anyone taken the time to thank the local businesses that contribute to this community? It must be a real strain to continiously get hit up for donations & door prizes from Girl Scouts/ Boy Scouts / 4H / Ducks Unlimited/ Boys & Girls Club / Middle School Fund Raisers / Elementary/ High School/ Youth Sports / etc. Most of our merchants are continiously asked to give/support the community - and many do so willingly. It's okay to complain when you do not get the service/respect that a patron deserves..... but there does need to be a balance. At least thank them for all that they support. Could any of you provide the same level of support to your community?

"Steele is survived by four children, Anthony, Allan, Anna and Andrea" - who will be kept in my prayers.

Carla is a great lady, and her physical presence will be greatly missed.

Harlan 3 years, 9 months ago on Craig Fire District continuing with 2nd station plans

to saunders,

I disagree with your statement that a second station would come at "no extra charge" or "cost to the public." Those charges appear on my property tax bill. They do have a cost.

I agree that the aged trucks were replaced as promised. I still want to know why a second station is needed. You mentioned expanding services. What are the potential expanded services? Is there a need for expanded services to the public?

I am beginning to wonder if the Craig Fire tax levy is too high.

littlesister & wellwell - thank you. I must raise my hand as a guilty party and admit that I didn't have any past interest or involvement. I assumed that those in charge had the public's best interest as their highest priority, and still do. But, I still do not understand why Craig would need a second fire station. Does the fire department have any public record that is available that tells me why this is needed? I guess my biggest problem is that I am shocked because I was not aware that we have a problem. What is the problem?

Thanks SmallTowner, I have the same thought but was trying to educate myself on why this is necssary. I didn't see any hint of why this is even being considered in the CDP story. I am also trying to obtain a copy of the original proposal for the mill levy increase.

It's hard to imagine why this is a needed facility. Perhaps someone from the fire protection side could help us understand. This would have my support if there is concrete evidence of a problem that this new building would solve.
