While the Craig Daily Press staff welcomes people to comment on our website, we ask that you refrain from name calling. Jobeth, we can't speak for Allen, but we can certainly outline why we decided to use the information you're questioning.
Because Logan Otis was drinking and driving while underage with his father in the car, we felt that it was relevant that Dennis Otis had two past DUIs. That information perhaps helps readers understand Dennis' feeling toward drinking and driving a motorized vehicle and why he let his underage son get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.
In regards to Stephen Otis, we thought it was relevant that the brothers were in jail together at the same time and that the Sheriff's Office facilitated time for them to meet after their father's death. The only reason we outlined Stephen's past criminal history was to tell readers why he happened to be in jail at the same time as his brother.
If you have any further questions or concerns, you're welcome to contact me directly at 970-875-1790.
George, Allen, Shaun, Mark, et al.:
While the Craig Daily Press staff welcomes comments on our stories, it's time for me to ask you to put an end to this discussion. The comments have become attacking and have reached a point of unproductiveness. All of you have made your points, and it's time to move on.
I will remove any comments on this story from this moment on. Thank you.

Patrick: The Craig Daily Press reported two stories this week which outlined all the facts of the situation. Byron Willems appeared to have removed his Facebook post, so it was not available to quote. He did admit that he made the Facebook post, boycotting businesses on social media at a public meeting on Tuesday.

The views of the editorial board are not the views of the entire paper. It is an opinion of the board, and was properly placed on the opinion page of the newspaper.
