One dead, one injured in Highway 40 collision near Craig December 19, 2014
Vallartas was horrible the last time i was there and the staff disappeared. I had to call them on my cell phone to get someone to the front so i could get my bill and pay. I agree with a good steakhouse...but Craig will never see it.
Yes...now I agree with you! :)
I have never been to one of these plays- I have much better things to do with my time..however, you must have lived that "Dream" if you can comment on the fact that you have to be drunk to enjoy it the play. To ALS: I never said I was mad, I completely agree with the VFW for wanting to protect their liquor license. Why has it taken however many years of them allowing this- to think about it now though?? I also think the food is better at JW.
I bet nobody would want to pay you to watch it either?
The food is a million times better too. mmmmm JW..
What about the carts at the apartments behind safeway and the one on Tucker street that has licence plates on it, who has to return those to the corrals?
Craig Middle School was at the top, it's average-where most others are high or excellent. I understand where you are all coming from. There are a lot of parents out there that don't care at all, i'm just stating the fact that I am one that does care. I can't go to PAC meetings because of my work schedule but it does not mean I don't get involved other ways.
That's great for you Mustang and I can understand that. I'm not here to have an argument with anyone, I am just pointing out things that bother me with my children's school. My son failed because he was hammered with math homework the same night he had a weaving project due. He chose the math over the weaving and in turn failed art for it. He explained to the teacher (same blonde one that's been there forever) what happened and instead of giving him an extra night to finish it, she failed him. So what...life goes on, math at the time was more important and probably always will be. I don't agree with Buck telling me kids are out of control because I want to be involved with my child's life. This is the reason my kid is not out of control, because I do know what's going on whether it be in school or out of school. If we didn't have kids failing these days then we wouldn't have to babysit the teachers now would we? Some are there for a reason and some are there to collect a paycheck, they could care less. Check out where Moffat County ranks with the other schools in our area-it's not that great. If I could live in Routt County and send my kid there, I would-they have excellent scores. This was taken from the Colorado School Accountability Reports.

I understand that they need well rounded curriculum and I have no problem with that. What I have the problem with, is the choice of curriculum. My son (not a "her" by the way) had no choice in the matter. At least make it something worthwhile, something they will carry on through life with. I'm pretty sure weaving isn't going to help him as an adult when he goes to work or when he goes to college. Teach banking skills or something life related. The problem with me telling him that he didn't have to do it is because the teachers load them up with massive amounts of homework, so much so that they don't have a normal night. My SON will come home from school and start on homework an hour later, work all through dinner until 11 pm at night. He still wouldn't get it all done. If parents like me didn't get involved in their children's school lives in regards to what is going on there, what is being taught and not being taught then my kids would be far worse off. It's my job as a parent to know what is happening at school, if you don't care then that's your choice.
When your kid has a ton of math homework and chooses that over weaving homework, then fails art because he chose the math, then I find it ridiculous. Its my kid and if I don't agree with weaving then that's my choice.
