Thanks for your kind words of support! I wish I would have had you around when I was in Fort Collins :) Interestingly though, I took about 6 months off from college, then began to complete my degree online through CSU Global. I am now 7 weeks from completing my degree in business management, and I am so excited! I moved back to Craig after I dropped out, so I am living here again. About 1 year ago I got a great job which I love, and my degree completion will enable promotions and such, so it all worked out and I am happy. Thanks again for the support, it means a lot!
Kerrie, great response, thank you for standing up for those of us who actually do care about our future. I am in my early 20's, and I went from high school right to college (to CSU also) and it was the largest challenge I have ever faced. I was a straight A' high school student who did extra-curriculars, and I was in shock, and felt completely unprepared for college. I made it 2 years, then had to leave to obtain full-time employment. Now that it has been a couple years since I first went to college, I have thought about why it was such a desperate struggle for me, as I have always eased through the education process. I determined my reason for such struggle was that high school was way too easy, and prepared me for nothing beyond that diploma. Such a shame. As someone who had the same experience as your daughter (and many others), I can say that the comments you made were absolutely correct, and thanks again for standing up for those of us who actually worked hard our whole adolescent lives for a brighter future.
Sounds amazing! Finally someone presents a feasible idea for building our community and utilizing our vast pool of skills and abilities. I am completely supportive of the idea, and I look forward to the progress that follows. It is crucial that as this process goes forward, the community is made well aware of what is going on, and how we can all be a vital asset as a whole.
Thank you for your honest words. I completely agree with you, and think that the obnoxious comments made towards concerned and opinionated people of other states just makes us look foolish.
Jamcolo & hikingincolorado- well said.
With that, unfortunately, in Craig America there really just are not too many recreational things to do other than to drink. It is incredibly depressing, but the truth. It IS sad that we cannot enjoy Craig without people getting intoxicated, and ignorant (aka the softball fields, Whittle the Woods, pebble beach, south beach, all of the bars, Putt-Putt Golf, bowling, etc.....) but at all of these places/events you are guaranteed to see people under the influence all over the place.
Come on guys, the list goes on and on. Any event or place to hang out is saturated with ignorant drunks because we have nothing else to do around here. And I am not downing drinkers for their choices- I am a moderate drinker who was intoxicated Saturday as well. Generation after generation of people settles in this town, and we watch our families over time binge drink just to enjoy living in this town with nothing else to do.
It is a horrible reality but GUESS WHAT??? I smoke a pack a day and I would LOVE for the tax money I spend on smokes every day to go towards that recreation center here in Craig. I am a young adult that loves to drink, but I would love for there to be a place where we can go and have some sober fun. Unfortunately it is not going to happen, and why??? Because here in Craig people would rather spend just as much money on Whittle the Wood for one day of an oldies band, booze, and brawls than for a recreational center.
It's neither here nor there I suppose.
This is horrible, and a huge disgrace to the community. The ignorant people in this town completely destroy the beauty that this area has to offer, and eliminate future possibility for more events and recrational activities. The reason that these nice people had to clean up over 300 POUNDS of trash is because of a young, drug and alcohol addicted group of degenerates that frequently goes out to this area and parties and leaves all of their garbage.
I know this for a fact, wanna know why? Because this group of people consistently post hundreds of pictures on their Facebook accounts for all of the world to see! This group ranges from the ages of approximately 16-28 years old, and these are mostly kids that have gotten in trouble over and over again, and have no hope.
I am sick and tired of seeing picture after picture on Facebook of these people ruining our community. It is because of them that there is a huge drug problem in this town. It is their fault that our budgets have to be wasted cleaning up their mess of a life. I have had it, and it would be a wise idea for the Sherrif's department to monitor this area more heavily.
It is finally summer, and I would like to go camping and hiking with my friends without tripping over garbage, and seeing drug induced circus dropouts roaming our beautiful area. Come on law enforcement, please put these criminals in jail and make this a better town-that's what you're there for and those of us that respect you, and this community would appreciate it.
Go ahead, look on Facebook, the pictures are on there of these people destroying our town.
Haha what a joke.

sickandtired & thepatriot: Excellent posts. What you posted hit the nail on the head. Sad and disgusting, but true.
I remember why CSP Bagley's name came into my mind when thinking of the drunken CSP in Denver: he was the one who pulled over that kid whose mother wrote a letter to the editor a few weeks ago. I apologize for the name mix-up. It was unintentional and I too have not heard any wrong-doing regarding this officer either. Sorry about that! (But not sorry for Trooper Dolan, what he did was wrong- plain and simple.)
