Just a reminder...the pool and the land north of the pool are not in question. The portion they are talking about is the land between the pool and VFW. I wanted to clarify that.

Buff_bronco_fan- You are an inconsiderate piece of work. How could you write something to the magnitude that you did!!! This is a huge loss to Mrs. Dahlberg. I have suggested removal of your insensitive and appalling message, PLEASE CDP, remove Buff_bronco_fans comment.

Thanks 3canines for taking the time to educate the ignorant commenters-READ and/or RE-READ the article people. Have a great day, God bless Mrs. Dahlberg, her family, and her cast and crew.

ranger520, Just because someone doesn't have the same opinion or voted differently than you, doesn't give you any right to insult. You're welcome to state your opinion, but please don't hurl insults or derogatory remarkes to other people with different opinions!


valleylocal 6 years, 5 months ago on Do you believe changing locations of the Whittle the Wood Rendezvous from Craig City Park to Loudy-Simpson Park would be positive or negative for the community’s biggest annual event?

tselan and eveyone else, 1st-JW Snacks was not the liquor vendor last year...two local non-profit organizations (who joined forces) were. The winning bidder had nothing to do with the "good old boys", they received the bid because they met the criteria setout by the City and State. Also, its the City's call to move the event, not the vendors. 2nd-The City of Craig had open bids on the liquor sales and only two organizations placed bids. There was certain criterias that had to be met by the bidders (T.I.P.S certified servers, liquor liability insurance, and people power, just to name a few). 3rd-The Police department checking ID's on private property isn't harassment. Private property or not, you must be at least 21 years of age, carry valid proof of ID, and not be on parole or probation in order to drink legally.

These are just some basic facts...some commonsense and a little research goes along way. See ya at Whittle the Wood!!!

valleylocal 7 years ago on Editorial: New Whittle policy a wise move

DavidMoore, Please keep in mind that vendors selling beer/liquor are required to purchase liquor liability insurance, and other overhead costs are involved that the average patron doesn't realize. I believe this years vendor is charging $3 for Bud/Bud Light and $4 for Bluemoon, but don't 'quote' me on this. Your estimate of $.25 a cup is way off. I hope this clarifies some misconceptions.

Perfectly stated 'kindraann'! Hopefully, Maquilla Hood doesn't get a strong backing of support to her request. One thought just came to mind, if she doesn't want her children outside, i'm sure the school would allow them to 'sit' in the Principals office during lunch, recess, and P.E.
