From My Window: RHS grads receive sage advice from commencement speaker

It is always enjoyable to attend a high school or college graduation as it is easy to spot those who are really happy those 12 years in high school, 14 years in a junior college and 16 years at a four-year college or university are over and now only a memory in the past.

From My Window: Some things best left to young folks; Congrats to RHS, MHS grads!

Some things are best left to a younger person. I definitely found out this past weekend that I am not as young as I used to be and that 30 to 35 years does make a difference.

From My Window: Chamber dinner unique and enjoyable; congrats to CNCC grads

The annual Meeker Chamber of Commerce Membership and Awards Dinner on Friday night was a unique event for a couple of reasons—and both of them made for a mostly enjoyable evening.

From My Window: ‘Good ole boys’ do great job; election issue is fire board vote

Let’s talk about the good ole boys! It seems to be a popular topic over the past few weeks. I apparently and quite mistakenly brought it up couple of weeks ago when talking about what kind of new chief should be hired to head up the Meeker Fire and Rescue.

From My Window: Fire chief’s letter reveals problems

Since I was a small child I have often heard two of the silliest of phrases uttered by man: “We’ve never done it that way before,” and, “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.”

From My Window: Health fair, Foundation dinner were successes

Had a great time Saturday, visiting the 9Health Fair in the morning in Meeker and the Colorado Northwestern Community College Foundation Dinner in Rangely that evening.

From My Window: Great election; go see the Wizard

What an election day Tuesday was! Two town elections with 15 candidates seeking a total of six seats on the town councils in Rangely and Meeker. Each town had three open seats, but Rangely had 10 candidates seeking election and Meeker had five candidates seeking three seats. It is good to see several candidates on […]

From My Window: Future Bright

I sat with silent happiness and listened to the five candidates who make up the list of folks running for the Meeker Town Board. The Meeker Chamber of Commerce-sponsored event, while unfortunately only drawing about 25 persons who weren’t candidates, was an uplifting event in which each of the candidates clearly looked out their windows […]

From My Window: Good to see all commission candidates on ballot; watch fire board

Saturday was gorgeous no matter which window one looked out. It was in the 60s at both ends of Rio Blanco County and a great day to be outdoors, particularly in the afternoon. Too bad it didn’t work out that way, but it was still a great day for a drive from Meeker to Rangely […]

From My Window: Monday’s snow was welcome; Thanks, Peyton! Open the ballot…

Got up at 6 a.m. on Monday morning. At 7:20, I looked out the window and it was overcast, but that was all. By 7:21, there were light flurries. By 7:23, it was a blizzard at my house. By 7:50, there was an inch and a half of snow on the back porch. “It’s back!” […]

From My Window: Commissioner race gets more interesting with Hill vs. Rector

Out my window the winds are starting to increase, the clouds are getting darker and I am getting exciting a bit about the approaching possible blizzard. Many folks were startled a couple of weeks ago when former Rio Blanco County sheriff Si Woodruff announced his plans to take on fellow Republican and incumbent Jeff Eskelson […]

From My Window: Tremendous job by MHS wrestlers; snowmobile run, justice center tours go well

It was a heck of a weekend. For one solid weekend, I looked out my windows and saw the sun on Saturday and Sunday. What a joyous time! Think spring is coming? Nope! Me neither.
