Hometown Hero: Linda Olson, fellow Ghost Walk cast provide interactive look at history
For this week’s Hometown Hero, the Craig Press is pleased to honor Linda Olson.
As part of her efforts to preserve the heritage of the area, Olson has organized the Craig Historic Ghost Walk, which took place for the second year this past weekend and will offer an additional showing during the Wyman Living History Museum’s pumpkin patch Oct. 19.
Olson had the idea for the project after viewing a similar venture in Pueblo, and she and numerous dedicated volunteers have captured the spirit of many past local personalities, imparting the good, the bad and the ugly that have made up Moffat County.
“We want people to understand what we do, and to understand the importance of history,” Olson said of the Ghost Walk.
Merriam-Webster defines a “hero” as a person admired for achievements and noble qualities. Who’s your hometown hero? A local first responder? Your neighbor? A co-worker? A friend? Help the Craig Press honor the unselfish service of our Hometown Heroes each Friday by submitting the name of your hero and a short statement explaining why he or she should be honored.

Last week Audrey Danner of Craig brought me two boxes of recipe books. She was “downsizing” her recipe book collection and wanted to know if I’d like to have the books. Of course I did, so since then I’ve had fun reading through them. In fact, I made a pie from a recipe in one of the books.
