Looking out the rear window this week, it has been a busy time all around.
It is wonderful to see and hear about all the Meeker and Rangely high school seniors filling out applications, taking their tests, checking into scholarships and grants and even student loans in preparation for life after high school.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Sometimes the old window gets a little foggy, and stories, columns and features that show up do more justice to journalism than I ever could. Below are two health-related columns.
