Maybell school children are preparing for the first day of school Wednesday. Shool will begin at 8 a.m. and let out at 3:15 p.m. The Maybell Elementary School bus will be running 20 minutes earlier this year so children will have enough school time since most Fridays will be teacher work days. For a schedule of school days, see Linda McCabe.
For Maybell students who attend school in Craig, the bus will pick students up at 7:20 a.m. at the Maybell school. If you are outside the Maybell area, call Linda O’Connor for pick-up times.

The Maybell library has the Jim Brinks index. Jim Brinks, a pharmacist from Craig, started reading microfilm in 1994 and indexing all articles from the area newspapers starting from July 1928 to Aug. 1949. Anyone is welcome to visit the library. If a book or tape can’t be found, the library will try to get it. The staff of the library is issuing a Moffat County Library card which can be used at the Craig, Dinosaur and Maybell libraries.
Some students are choosing to chart their own course after graduation, bucking the conventional path of college or trade school, but with no less ambition than their degree-seeking peers. Moffat County High School senior Tyler Gonzales is one such student, who has chosen to dive into a full-time job at Chaos Ink after graduating and feed his passion for design and entrepreneurialism.
