From My Window: Family still a strong pull during holidays; lights, Broncos shine

Just got done riding around Meeker after Friday night’s big snow and there certainly isn’t a lot of pavement to be found. Even on Sunday, after about 36 hours without snow, there are a lot of cars that might be tough to find as well. Between the snows that had fallen last week, the snow […]

From My Window: Concert a joy; a nurse’s smile helps; and Merry Christmas!

It was a real pleasure and actually a lot of fun to take in the Meeker School District annual Community Winter Concert last week at Meeker High School. The music featured the sixth grade, seventh grade and eighth grade bands from Meeker Elementary School, the Barone Middle School choir and the Meeker High School choir […]

From My Window: Christmas lights create holiday mood; prep basketball a joy

I must admit to being a bit of a Scrooge. It has been more than just a couple of decades since I became excited about Christmas. As an adult on my own until I got married at the age of 29, there wasn’t much to look forward to.

Christmas Thoughts: ’Twas the Night Before Christmas

The tradition of reading ’Twas the Night before Christmas poem on Christmas Eve is now a worldwide institution and tradition. … Clement Clarke Moore (1779-1863) wrote the poem, which is also called “A Visit from St. Nicholas” in 1822. …

From My Window: Christmas lights still few; keep sidewalks clean; more warmth?

Looking out my window on Saturday night it was pretty dark, but the snow reflecting the few lights visible made it look fairly light outside in comparison to a normal night. Thought it might be worth it to head up toward all corners of Meeker to see how many folks had gotten a jump on […]

From My Window: Local shopping means so much; family means much more

There is no more serious and heart-felt column you will read from me during the year than this one. It’s a simple phrase: “Shop Locally.” And it is nice to look out the window and see your Meeker or Rangely neighbors shopping at local stores because it may be a more important thing to do […]

From My Window: Chance for major world powers to unite?; ‘Mermaid’ a success

Turning on the television on Saturday night had me seeing red from my window as the TV screen reflected the photos and news shots transmitted from Paris, France.

From My Window: Connecting Veterans Day and Thanksgiving; Broncos loss a temporary setback

We are caught today between Veterans Day, which was Wednesday, and Thanksgiving, which is in two weeks. Are they related? Could they be? Should they be?

From My Window: Remember our veterans on Wednesday; mock disaster sobering

Wednesday is Veterans Day, and while so much has been written about what we owe our veterans over the years, it is never enough. It is tough to put into simple words what our nation’s veterans have meant, mean and will mean in the future to this United States of America.

From My Window: Selle has correct picture; Vote in election!!!

I like when things are clear, and I can see clearly out my windows today that new Meeker Superintendint of Schools Chris Selle is offering a clear vision of what life is within the Meeker School District after his 100th day on the job. A person with a clear view and a clear mission is […]

From My Window: Pioneers employees outstanding; thanks for help; Go Broncos!

Hello once again. It would be fun to say that I didn’t write a column for two weeks because a certain reader, Michelle, has complained to friends that she doesn’t read my column anymore because it is too long. But, the truth is, my windows were pretty fogged up the past couple of weeks due […]

From My Window: Milk Creek dedication sends good message to both sides

I had a heart-tugging moment on Saturday while looking quite clearly out across the site of the Milk Creek Battlefield; after all, there were no windows around.
