The golden cavvy has poor service, the food leaves a lot to be desired and the prices are pretty high considering what you get. The galaxy used to be the best place in town for chinese food as far as pricing and quality of food, but they have been seriously lacking the last few years. The only place to have a decent breakfast for a decent price is at the VFW and at the OP on the weekend, otherwise, it's pretty expensive to have breakfast out. I don't eat at fast food places so I have no clue about those. Village inn, well, ya never know what you are gonna get there. It depends on who is cooking and who is waiting tables. The mexican restaurants in town seem to be pretty good if you can eat there. I can't so I don't.

sc428, Who in their right mind would be having trainings scheduled during the summer anyway? The firefighters are going to be getting hands on training this year. The fact that you are using this as your personal political forum is absolutely revolting. Thanks to the many, many people who helped with this fire and put it out quickly and efficiently. Our hats go off for ya.

I have been to this event for many years. I have to say that if you want to go to the park and stay for the day, ok then the move was a success. I really didn't like that if I wanted to go somewhere else, I had to wait for a shuttle or risk losing my parking spot. I ended up staying for the day but got to thinking, what about the non-drought years when the mosquitos are driving everyone nuts. I also made it a point to talk to some of the carvers that have come back year after year. They said that usually they have people stopping by all week long, and this year since they were, "out in the middle of nowhere", their words not mine, they did not have that happen. It is important for them to be seen all week long, as they have a lot more sales that way. I can't believe that the downtown businesses saw much business from this either. I know the car show was down there, but I didn't even go to that as I'm sure other people didn't either.

Buff_bronc_fan, so you are saying that because we need the revenue, then we should allow him to go ahead and continue with his application?

I have to highly disagree with that theory. He lied on his application and I wish they could file fraud charges against him for it. I would also like to see his application denied outright. Craig has enough liquor establishments available and we do not need another one in town. Especially one so close to a school zone. I will be stopping by on my way home to sign the petition against this and also contacting whomever I need to contact so that they have yet another voice against this.

How cavalier of this applicant to just shrug his shoulders when he was caught lying the last time, turn around and refile with the corrected information. That tells me that he is not of good enough character to run a responsible establishment to begin with.

I think that Ms. Hampton is a survivor of this crime, not a victim. Hooray to her for helping raise the awareness of this kind of crime and sharing her story with others. Some people wouldn't be so strong. Being a survivor makes you who you are and not a victim of the circumstances that happened to you.

Tired of SSDD. I have a question because I personally have never heard of a sunset clause...how do we go about doing that? Can we insist that this is written into every new request for a new mill levy? Do we have the right to do that? Or is our only option to vote down any new request that does not have this clause? Is this our way out of a mill levy increase? Please explain how this type of clause works. I need educated. Thanks

I agree with Ranger520 and smalltowner. This is just a flagrant waste of community resources where the people of this county were misled into thinking they were voting for the fire department to use the funds for more equipment or to update the existing equipment.

Hayden has a perfectly good facility and it seems to me that the fire department here has to use this money or be caught in a big fat lie. I live out on that side of town and do not want this near my house, thank you very much. I didn't vote for the increased money for the fire department and if I were to be asked right now, I would have to say that I am disappointed in the way that whole thing was handled to begin with. It seems to me that the taxpayers have had the wool pulled over their eyes. The vote on that was a while ago and nothing can be done about it now.

Suffice it to say that it is water under the bridge and cannot be undone. But remember this, fire department...the next time you come to the taxpayers, begging for money, we are going to remember this and vote accordingly. The residents of Moffat County and the City of Craig, have long, long memories. Be aware that I know that I will hesitate and so will all the people I know that do vote cause I will make sure they hear about this. Lesson learned this time, but next time, it won't be so easy. Fool me once, shame on you...fool me twice, shame on me...

Wait a minute...these people have put their lives on the line for your butt and mine. They have placed the value of their lives beneath ours so that we can live the life we live. They have contributed numerous good deeds to this community. Their sacrifices were more challenging than you or I can consider. They have served our country in ways that I can only imagine. They deserve the utmost respect for their service. Let's keep that in mind.

You are treading on dangerous ground when you suggest what a person do with their own property, especially in this area. If you don't like how it is being handled, make an offer to buy it and fix it up yourself. Otherwise, stop looking at it. You don't own it and you don't have a say in what it looks like unless you do own it.
