The state has failed already to fully define how to manage this issue. There are still issues pending including how to tax the sale of marijuana which has to be decided by ballot. Additionally, it is still a federal crime and the businesses cannot legally use a bank to manage their activity (which would include most credit cards as well). Given all this I think Craig would be wise to completely prohibit this from the city until the issue has more clarity.

So William, what is your solution? What is the light you reference? Have we solved the energy for the future without fossil fuel and I missed it? It is always easy to speak in the abstract, where are the specifics? How will we get to that future for our grandchildren, by continuing to spend them into an abyss they cannot recover from? Perhaps it is those who complain without offering legitimate solutions who deserve pity.

While I agree with everything you wrote I also have to note my personal experience with community support by the educators in the community. I have spent many hours serving on the boards of multiple organizations in the community and have always been frustrated by the apparent lack of involvement of educators in these organizations. I am not talking about financial support but rather time support. Every other person there also has a full time job or a business to run, families to support and a busy life, just like educators. They also make time to volunteer and support the community. It could be that I fail to see the contributions from educators in this area and if so, then I apologize. As my experience across many organizations and many years goes though, I have not seen it. I do hold educators in high regard and owe them immensely for the positive influence they have had on my life and thank them for setting high expectations for me when I was in their classrooms. I am now holding them to those same high expectations.

Lance is spot on regarding the need for parent involvement, that is the key to the success of our children in any endeavor. I am assuming that Lance is including ALL extracurricular activities when he references athletics because the same is true whether it is football, basketball, speech and debate, DECA, FFA, music or any of the many other activities available to the children of Moffat County.

I am disappointed and hope that this paper does not consider this an example of reporting. There is absolutely no content here. I assume this is not the best you can do.

Wow! What a loss to our community! Dr. Villard has been a ubiquitous and visionary presence in our community and will be sorely missed. Her leadership in the school district as well as the many organizations she has supported with her time and passion will create a void that will be hard to fill.
