Craig slices into summer with Whittle the Wood
Carvings are taking shape midway through the 16th annual Whittle the Wood Rendezvous.
Craig’s premier summer event officially began Wednesday morning as one dozen chainsaw artists each began slicing into stumps set up in Loudy-Simpson Park to create some unique pieces.
Among those competing range from several brand-new to the event, to veterans of many years, as well as one carver returning for the first time since the inaugural 1999 gathering.
The public can view their progress Friday and Saturday, as well as enjoying live music by numerous groups, including Jefferson Starship Saturday evening.
2:10 a.m. On the 400 block of Washington Street, police in Craig responded to an animal complaint. Craig police said a caller reported being bitten by a dog and police continue to investigate.
