I will miss Mr. Craig Smith deeply. Having served as a past Principal at Craig Intermediate School, I will remember Craig first as a genuine, kind and caring person. I remember the terrific manner in which he cared for kids and at the same time expected the best out of his students--and they delivered! His deep, resounding voice, good-humor, and his friendship when you needed it most could be counted on like a safe harbor in a storm--Craig was always there for others. My wife, my son Brian, and I will always have a special place in our hearts for this terrific guy! Our thoughts go out to the family. God Bless.

We so much appreciated her when we lived in Craig. Marianna was just so kind and friendly, never complaining yet so willing to help others. I remember how nice she was to my son and to our family. She would say to my (skinny) son, " C'mon, you need to eat more" and just pile on the great food and the smiles and kindness--what a great and giving person! We will miss her deeply and will reflect on how much she added to our lives without her even knowing it. Blessing to her parents and the family; John, George, Mari, and Hodge. We miss you guys!

Before you give the school district one more penny, ask them how much they spent on tetradata and scantron systems that were supposed to be the solutions to all of the schools' woes! Lots of money! Why not ask this question?

I wanted to say a big "thank you" to Steve for the time he spent with my son when we lived in Craig. We remember the great times and the good people in Craig and my son Brian will always have just the absolute best memories about his buddies up there! We miss everyone very much! Thanks not only to Steve but to Coach Jeff Knoche for the unseen time, energy, and knowledge he brings and brought to the game of basketball. Selfless giving on the part of both of these guys! Best wishes, Steve! Don

I have it! Let's plow the deer into the middle of the road and remove them. Then plow the snow into the driveways so people can't get in or out to disturb the deer!

maverick 5 years, 10 months ago on Our View: Snow removal essential

Craig doesn't remove snow, they relocate snow. The snow is moved into driveways and that immediately turns to ice and cannot be moved when you return home. Lisa, that's why you pay taxes (pretty high here in Craig). The city needs to plow to the middle and then remove the snow. The crews do a good job with what they are told to do but the solution is backwards, I believe.

maverick 5 years, 10 months ago on Rhonda Stehle: Keep pets on a leash

Why have "snow removal" anyway when the city doesn't remove it at all? Plowing ice into driveways makes it impossible to remove it anywhere most of the time. It's legal for the city to plow it into the driveways but illegal for citizens who pay taxes (for such things like snow removal) to put it back? What sense is this? Just plow it to the center and remove it like other cities do.

Agree with you both. Shanahan is the coach and the GM. He is so predictable like death and taxes. 1-4 since Elway left. I think he has "overcoached" the team at times and hasn't kept it simple enough to manage for some of these "braniacs" that play nowadays!

maverick 5 years, 10 months ago on Storm brings plowing season

Happy New Year to you , too! My point is that cities with a smaller tax burden can plow correctly. I am not saying that the crews here do a poor job--far from it. Many are my relation, however, to plowback into the driveways causes lots of problems for an aging populace who cannot keep up with the amount of solid ice removal that the plows cause often two to three times per day. This is dangerous! The answer is make this a priority, plow a windrow to the center, and remove it to lots toward the river. I certainly imagine the effort as I have done my homework to see what it costs in cities with a smaller tax base . If other communities do it, we should expect the same. Create a snow management plan!

maverick 5 years, 11 months ago on Storm brings plowing season

Lived here lots longer than you. Help my neighbor three to four times a day with the ice the city plows into the driveway. Family homesteaded as a matter of fact. Seems to me that you just don't get it. It's not about Aspen, there is an analogy here that I'm confident you can't understand judging from your comment. so I'll just consider the source. To make it simpler for you, the bottom line is we PAY for snow removal--more than a rich community. Oh well, you don't really want to get it so go back to your shack and put your head back in the sand.
