Terrie Barrie 1 week ago on Status uncertain for Craig's Galaxy restaurant

My first job when I moved to Craig in the mid to late 1990's was a waitress at the Galaxy. That's when John and Sue owned it. Yes, that was 20 years ago. I had hoped that when they sold the restaurant that the same quality of food, service and cleanliness would continue. Unfortunately, it has not. Yes, Mr. Hischke, I experienced the same sticky table. I did not have the smell you experienced. What bothered me most was that the restaurant was so dark during the lunch hour I wondered if they were hiding something.

"Over the Line" reminds me of the stick baseball game I played when I was young and living back East. We used a broom stick for a bat and half a tennis ball. The blue car was first base and the white car was third. Sounds like it will be a great time.

Thank you, Mary Jo, for the articles you wrote. They truly captured the spirit of what it is like to live in a small community like Craig. I truly enjoyed reading your "scribblings".

Was this a test to see if readers read this column thoroughly? "It was not confirmed if the deadbolt was taken in for questioning after its ordeal." Good one! It brought a smile to my face.


Terrie Barrie 1 year, 7 months ago on Craig Depot preservation project hoping to pick up steam

I hope this preservation is successful. Sign me up as a volunteer to clean, paint., etc. My grandsons says our train set is too small! I agree that it should be a museum. But I'd like to see, besides a gift shop, a small snack bar. Maybe an old fashioned soda fountain with glass jars of brightly colored candies.


Terrie Barrie 2 years, 5 months ago on Loudy-Simpson Park Pond reaches new depths

Over the many years I have fished at Loudy-Simpson, I must have given many a fellow fisherman a good laugh. I had no idea the depth was only 18"! I had my line equipped with extra weights, a bobber and often with the biggest worm I could find. The fish ate well and probably shared a laugh, too. I'm definitely looking forward to fishing there this year.


Terrie Barrie 3 years, 10 months ago on Pamela Kinder M.D.: TMH aministration has gone too far

I have had a growing concern about the hospital's administration for awhile.

This is their mission - "To improve the quality of life for the communities we serve through exceptional healthcare and service excellence." And they are achieving this goal how? By alienating the physicians who have spent years servicing the population?

For a physician to come out and publically air her frustrations with the hospital's administration should give everyone in Moffat County cause for concern.

The reason I voted for the tax to build a new hospital was because the physicians who come to Craig from Steamboat would also be able to perform the required surgeries and procedures at the new hospital. That hasn't happened. Why not? Here we supposedly have the state of the art facility, paid for with our tax dollars, yet the Steamboat physicians who willingly come to Craig to see their patients will not or cannot perform the needed procedures at The Memorial Hospital. Again, I ask, why not? What is stopping them? Craig residents must travel 40 miles for a skin cancer removal or a knee replacement. We have this brand new hospital. Why can't it be done here?

What is the real reason the physicians and other professionals are leaving The Memorial Hospital? I would like an answer to that.

I support Dr. Kinder's concerns. I have them, too. I don't think the hospital administration should have recruited a neurologist from Grand Junction. We have a very qualified one right here.

I guess I will be making sure I attend the hospital Board meeting in the future.

Seems like the two of us are on the same page for this issue. We are lucky that a real fire didn't develop while the equipment was tied up at the Commissioner's property.
