Personally, I prefer the City Park. There is more shade to protect from sunburns of adults and children alike. The playground equipment is better. It's a great central location within walking distance to downtown. It has the feel of a community event. People tend to forget there is something going on if it's out of town. Out of sight, out of mind. I no longer attend the events that got moved to Wymans. I doubt I am the only one. I know the city is trying to shy away from using the City Park due to its conflict with the VFW, but moving traditional events isn't going to make them any more popular. And no, before anyone makes a comment about it, I am not a business owner. On an additional note, people aren't going to be paying more for police. They get paid the same salary no matter where they are and what they are doing. So the logic that it saves tax dollars fails.

I am happy to see this event at Loudy Simpson Park as I believe that it is a better venue for this type of festival. However, I find it ironic that the balloon festivals that I have attended in other communities are free, and that there is a charge to attend when we already are paying for Loudy Simpson through taxes.

I love that CNCC offers career specific programs as opposed to being a strictly degree associated college. It is a great fit for this area. I have not personally visited the new campus, however I am sure that it will be a great asset to our community.

This is a horrible tradgedy and I feel horrible for the families of the individuals involved. I am very familiar with adderall. For those that battle ADD, it is a great help. It is an appetite suppressant and does affect eating habits. However, if anything, the medication calms irrational thoughts and behaviors. I believe this information was misrepresented in this article.

I do not see a difference between allowing some animals and not others. If you are going to be putting restrictions on what animals people can't have, how about we ban pitbulls like the ones that attacked the high school teacher? It's all about personal freedoms and personal responsibilities folks. If you don't want chickens, don't get them. Easy as that, but what gives you the right to tell your nieghbor what they can or cannot do on thier own property? I think the mountain lions coming into town for a few chickens is quite a stretch. And as far as the comment about living in the city, this is a rural city. It's not Denver or Grand Junction, it's Craig. That's what a lot of people love about Craig, is that it still has that small town feel to it.
