The Community Budget Center in downtown Craig was broken into over the weekend. A TV was stolen, and cash from the store’s donation box. Thieves also unplugged the store’s security equipment, and damaged the building. Karen Brown with the donation center says there will not be any money for assistance programs for the month of June. The center gives emergency assistance to people who need it, whether it is for rent, gas money, or shelter. Brown says, “It’s pretty scary stuff when things like this happen in a small community.”

Graduation for Moffat County High School is at 10 a.m. Saturday. Those attending can park at the K-Mart lot and get a free shuttle up to the high school. At the recent Bulldog Pride Assembly, two students won cars. That would be senior Talon Flanders and sophomore Tauren Farquharson. The cars were donated by Victory Motors of Craig and Scott Cook and the team at Cook Chevrolet, Subaru and Ford, of Craig and Steamboat Springs. Many other businesses helped with fixing up the cars. To be in the drawing to win a car, students had to have a 90-percent attendance, and a 3.5 GPA. Or they had to increase their GPA by half a percent. The kids could get extra entries to the drawing if they were involved in two or more activities at the school. Both car dealerships say they will donate cars again next year.
