Making the cut: Judging the masterpieces of Whittle the Wood

As a Craig native, my favorite part of summer for the better part of two decades in Northwest Colorado has been the Whittle the Wood Rendezvous. I still remember catching the very first event in City Park as a teenager — reluctantly, of course, since it was not acceptable in my middle school mind to be seen with a parent in public — and seeing several weird and wonderful wood carvings that just days earlier were mere logs.

Letter to the editor: Ticket prices put a damper on family attendance

I was going to go to Whittle the Wood with my family. We all decided to go on Saturday afternoon. I arrived before my family and was informed there will be a $30 gate charge because it was after 12:30 p.m. I told the gate people that I was waiting for my family and 6-year-old grandson. We were not going to stay for the concert, but to look at the exhibits and visit the vendors and food trailers.
