j4mom7 4 years ago on Andy and Karol Bullen: 'Childish argument'

Well said! My thoughts exactly! These "adults" need to stop acting like 3 year olds and remember they are playing in the same game for the same team, and the tax-paying voters are the coach. This isn't an "us and them" situation. Given the choices we had at the time, the majority of us picked what we thought were the best people for the job. Same with the Safety Center...the majority of us agreed the best use of our tax dollars was to house our LEO's in the same area where they could all share resources and avoid duplication. Now it's time for the players to step up to the plate, figure out how to cooperate, and do whats best for the team, which is all the citizens of Moffat County.

This is great news. I hope it keeps growing and becomes a "destination" event. It's a kick to watch, and I really enjoyed the night lighting of the balloons.

Congratulations, Katy! This award is appreciation for a job well done and a positive influence on countless young lives, and it is richly deserved. You have brought much to MCHS and, while sad to see you go, here's hoping the next phase of your life will be as enjoyable and productive for you as the one you are moving on from.

It doesn't matter if there was a forgetful or editing error...it was in the past and it's old news. I just know this article brought back memories and made me smile. And isn't that what it was supposed to do? Thanks, Kathy!

Good job, Ray and Bryce. Kudos to both of you. Our children ARE our community's future and all should have the opportunity to seek higher education if they desire. I would just say maybe make the criteria be graduating from MCHS within the last five years because sometimes it takes a bit of time to grow up and gain some life experience, and figure out what one might want to be or do. At any rate, I shall be making my way to the bank and making a contribution to the scholarship fund. Thanks for putting it in place.

j4mom7 4 years, 10 months ago on Rick Barnes: Advice on census

Please, folks, go to the website, http://2010.census.gov, and click on the preview link on the home page. It will preview the form in its entirety and allow you to see all the questions asked. You can click on each question in the website and see the reason the question is being asked. Nowhere does it ask about guns or meds or bank accounts or credit cards. If someone comes to your door and asks questions like that, the person asking them is not a Census employee and you need to close the door and call the police as that person is attempting to defraud you. You can also ask the person to show you their Census i.d. The information being asked for on the survey is in the public domain or can be googled. And before you ask, the reason for the census is two-fold: 1) because the Constitution, Article 1, Section 2, mandates that once every ten years every person in the United States is counted so we know what our population is, and 2) every ten years, information about our population is updated and brought current in one central database. The Census survey is being mailed to the majority of the country, but there are a number of areas in the country that will get theirs hand-delivered, and Northwest Colorado is one of those areas. For Moffat County, specifically, we are rural, we are hard to reach, many of our residents have p.o. boxes, some of our residents aren't here year-round, and our roads and the weather make mail delivery difficult. To make sure every household in the county gets a survey in a timely manner, Census takers will be delivering the surveys to every doorknob in the county starting the beginning of March. It's short, it's quick, and it's postage-paid to mail it back. If it's not mailed back, the census takers will go out again and do personal interviews. And BTW, census takers are not part of the stimulus program. The 2010 Census has been being planned for and organised since after the 2000 Census, and hiring census takers to do follow-up was part of the plan before President Obama was elected.
