Craig Daily Press- please note you have Wesley's name as Maury in the picture. I think the mix up is coming from football season when Maury gave Wesley his jersey for the first half of football season, and then wore it for the second half causing lots of confusion for the paper and spectators.

You go Wesley....Good luck snowmobile racing...Take no prisoners. We have faith in you.

Maury's mom

If Wall isn't the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is!!! His respect and morality is shot as well after the drunk driving incident, and how he has the nerve to comment on any higher moral ground is beyond me.

onewhocares 4 years, 7 months ago on Lance Scranton: The reality of things

Hey coach, I totally agree with alot of what you said, but I disagree on the importance of going to college (and/or.trade school).You're right, a college degree doesn't guarantee a high paying job, but it gives you the opportunity to meet new people & have new life experiences you would not have had if you stayed in the safe world of Craig. Making the effort to go out of your safe place, may open the world to new & exciting opportunities, allowing you to know "you lived" when you're in the middle years. Further, schooling also gives you more opportunities in life, than being stuck to work at the local companies in your area. Not pursuing your dreams, because it's been indirectly implied in your community, that higher education isn't important is a travesty and squasing in believing in your students abilities. As for sports, playing on a team should be a privilege, not a right, and if the athletes grades are not at least a "C" the privilege should not be there for them to play. Why make mediocrity okay? My biggest complaint with the school district, is the prevailing attitude that mediocrity is okay, instead of expecting the world for all the students and helping them see they can pursue their dreams. There is a whole world out there for all the kids to explore, if they learn to have the self esteem to go out there and experience it, instead of being too lazy or afraid to go out there and experiencing it. I'd like my son Maury to go out there, experience the world and then if he wants to come back to Craig, come with a degree or training to help better Craig in the long run and to know he experienced life.

Sincerely, Kerrie Clarke

onewhocares 4 years, 7 months ago on ‘Avatar’ has stunning visual flair, but story is colorless

No offense, but your ignorance regarding the past military actions in the US is totally insulting. Do you think Custer, Reno, Sherman, Sully and the others that participated in the massacres against our Native Americans, such as at: Wounded Knee, Sand Creek and the Yontocket sites, to mention just a minute few, were polite as they smashed the babies heads together, and mutilitated the women, as they wiped out the tribes? Maybe you should educate yourself on your own history and whether you like it or not, the way the military was portrayed in this movie (as the scientists) was representative of what took place in our US beginnings. Who cares if you live on a reservation. Regardless of your race, most people today are born and raised in a Christian society totally detached by nature, and I wouldn't expect the teenagers to understand about spirituality and the connectiveness to the natural world as was portrayed (& yes a bit exaggerated) in this movie.

I, too give this critic two thumbs down and the movie 4 strong stars. Maybe the critic should study in depth the genocide of our Native Americans more thoroughly. If he did he would see that the zeal that was displayed by the humans in their quest to rid the natives that stood in the way of "capitalism" was very accurate (can you say George Armstrong Custer?) .The reality is, if we went to another planet, we as humans would do the exact same thing AGAIN!!! The lesson in this movie is very important to our youth and was captured in a beautifully stunning way. Our planet was just as beautiful in another way once upon a time.

onewhocares 4 years, 9 months ago on Byron Willems: Medical marijuana

You're the man Byron !!! I could not agree with you more. We all ready have an epidemic drug problem in Craig, and now this.....Can you say our citizens are becoming the living dead, with a few exceptions.
In my opinion, unless you're dying from a painful cancer, I can't see how you are even justified using marijuana to begin with. I would bet there's a 1000 other healthier alternatives you could try if you made the effort to do so. We have become a society of people unwilling to face life head on, even the injuries and ailments that plague us. And yes, I have experienced excruciating injuries and have yet had to resort to marijuana, AND I am strong again, BUT it took hard work and sometimes painful moments to get there.

onewhocares 4 years, 10 months ago on Local organizations regroup after Ken Johnson arrest

" He who stands by and does nothing when witnessing a crime, are just as guilty as the person(s) committing the crime" Sam Oliner-Holocause survivor & professor

Despite the truly wonderful officers out there helping the community, the series of events that have unfolded in the last 4 weeks have really deeply hurt the police department's image. A local police officer taught us years ago at the police academy at CNCC, "image is everything in police work." Within the last few weeks, Officer Luker was not charged with embezzlement, in a company co-owned with his wife, though his wife was, then the totally disappointing news about the road Ken Johnson chose to take, whom I liked, along with the very incriminating news the police department did nothing to stop it, which as Sam would say, makes them just as guilty as Ken, then the tragic timing of Kathy Johnson's death just days later.

What does the police department expect the communtiy to feel after reading this? How can the community not question the integrity of those in charge? And remember one more thing, that officers taught us at the academy "where there's smoke, there's usually fire." Maybe guys it's time you listen to your own words. Sadly, the damage is done to CPD- --though bless the hearts of the officers that are truly honorable.
