Pit decision right
I agree with the county's decision to allow the gravel pit in the South Valley since we don't have any over here.
Against the grain
Apparently, the city attorney and City Council have decided to spend more than $200,000 defending the RICD to ensure that the kayakers -- who prefer to sleep in their trucks rather than in hotels -- get enough water flowing down the Yampa so that they have a "black diamond" water course. Why aren't these heavy-spending, economy-lifting kayakers taking advantage of the healthy flows right now? I don't understand why an agricultural community would spend so much money on an issue that goes against the grain of responsible water management. Remember, don't waste your water; the kayakers need it.
We need a defensive driving course. I'm from Los Angeles, where everyone drives crazy, but up here, I've seen more destruction. People need to think twice, look ahead, and, please, slow down on these mountain roads. From Craig to Delta, you all drive crazy on these mountain roads. Please, for Barbara Schoen's sake and the sake of her family.
No, I don't agree with the pit in the South Valley.
Yes, I heartily agree with the county commissioner's decision to allow a gravel pit in the South Valley. Kudos to the commissioners.
