Way to go Coach Scranton. If you believe in Dr. Patrone, I believe. We need the new sights from someone and the faith that he can get it done.


2aLegal 8 years, 5 months ago on Our View: Are we ‘just Craig’?

I agree somewhat with msnative816 and also with reader1 but my question is, if some of these young men and women do not go to work at the mine, be a mechanic or work for a retailer, who will? Secondary education is not for everyone and should not be frowned upon by others who do chose to go on to college. Craig, Colorado has been my home for the past 20 years, I grew up in a larger city in the midwest, I went to a trade school for an associates degree, this does not make me any smarter than another person who chose to enter into the work force right after high school. It was a personal choice. What I have found that is sad is when my child went to college and took a placement exam, had to take a remedial non-credited class because his/her schooling at the high school level was not good enough for him/her to enter into a college credited class and the professor administering the test asked "Where did you go to high school?", when my child responded Moffat County the professor said "Oh that makes perfect sense." What does that mean? We as a community, family, and society need to step up and demand a better future for our children. As reader1 says, this community relies heavily on the mining industry, I agree. There is nothing wrong with a young man or woman going to the mines for a job, taking a mechanics position at a local or body shop, or even taking a job at local retailer/grocery store. This is an opportunity for them to make a very stable life for themselves, find themselves and decisde what they would like to do for the future. If they have choosen that path for their life who are we to say no. As I stated, I went right into a trade school after high school only to go again in my 30's for a different career. If I had waited to go on to college I may have changed my mind and did the 4 year program and on to graduate school. Anyone who leaves high school and enters into the workforce immediately should be given some kudos, they have made a choice not to waste some time and money at a college and instead search if this is the career they wish to follow. We are not to judge what another person chooses for thier life, we can only do what we think is right for ourselves.

I believe that the female shot put thrower's name is Shylar Hadley not Skylar Leonard. Skylar Leonard is a young male runner not a female shot put and discus thrower. Myiah Bengston also lettered in her first discus thow with a throw of 95' 7". To letter in discus you have to throw 95'.


2aLegal 9 years, 9 months ago on Two Courthouse security plans under way

Dear Mr. Mathers:

It appears that you may not think that security is not necessary at the Moffat County Courthouse but some of us in community (especially those who work there on a daily basis) do. It is not a matter of if someone will bring in a loaded weapon, it is a question of when. The Judges, clerks, District Attorney's and the Probation Officers work with many people that are not always balanced. You as a County Commissioner may feel safe in your office at the Court House, but I can assure you that the Judges do not. They sentence many people who threaten them on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis. These threats should never be taken lightly. So my question is...do you wait for someone to fatally harm one of our Court personel before you do something? I sincerely hope not, I think that the cost of security will be far less than a lawsuit for wrongful death. Think hard about the decision you are making.
