The "Historic Donation" article in June 12's newspaper brings up several questions in my mind.
Voters elected months ago not to fund the library and museum. Why they were joined at the hip, so to speak, as one issue for voters puzzled me. They are not the same thing, and deserved individual consideration.
Since my election, and to be more pertinent, since the last city council meeting where I made a motion to begin the process to put recreational cannabis on the ballot for November, my "conflict of interest" has been thrown around a lot, mainly by the same people who have been trying to prevent our success since we began this process.
In all of the time that I’ve lived in Moffat County, I’ve never known how much money the fire department brings in and spends. All taxing entities have an obligation to keep voters informed on their finances. That’s true of the city, county, MCSD, CNCC and Craig Fire/Rescue.
I write to you today with an impassioned plea. Having now been in Craig for a number of years, I (as probably you have also), heard the calls that “someone should do something about (insert topic)”. Even as people in the community try, others seem to do nothing more than complain about those that try to make changes. It is about our future as a community that I write to you today.
My name is Bere Neas. I was born and raised in the Yampa Valley. My father Irlan Neas was a banker in the community for over 50 years and also past chairman of the Yampa Valley Electric Association. When I graduated from Colorado State University, I moved to Denver where I was in banking for approximately 40 years. I retired and moved back to my beloved community of Steamboat Springs, in the Yampa Valley.
I would like to voice my support for Chuck Grobe to be elected as our representative to the Yampa Valley Electric Board.
I sincerely hope Craig doesn't allow Pot Sales and other narcotics to ruin a beautiful small town like it has most of the rest of the state.
I just read in the Craig Press that Mr. Paul James made a motion to begin writing an ordinance for marijuana. It seems to me Mr. James making that motion is a conflict of interest...
A well-run alcohol and drug rehab facility could be a real asset for the community, similar to MRH and CNCC.
The family of Edna I. Johnson wants to express our sincere gratitude for all the condolences, prayers, flowers, and cards to our family.
Unfortunately, I did not get to say a proper goodbye last week to the Craig community, MRH staff and patients I have grown to love so dearly over the past almost-5 years.
Thank you from the Jeff Chamberlain family. We want to express our sincere gratitude for all the thoughts and prayers for our family.
The Senior Social Center would like to thank Jennifer Riley and her Dermatology team for hosting a recent Skin Check Clinic.
The Interfaith Food Bank would like to thank the Craig Post Office employees for all their hard work and the community members who supported the annual USPO Food Drive.
I just read a survey on the internet sponsored by a group called “Lake Research Partners” and “New Bridge Strategy” that claim “that two-thirds of Colorado’s voters favor restoring wolves in Western Colorado." I am appalled that two-thirds of Colorado’s population is that irresponsible and emotionally ignorant of the true picture.
I just saw an article on the internet that stirred interest in me. The article told of Aurora, Colorado and their quest to build a rec center. They finally were able to build their rec...
