Sound Off for Sept. 25


Sound Off excellent

I would like to say that Sound Off is an excellent place for people to Sound Off when they feel intimidated by other people. I think you should keep it anonymous because there are a lot of people who are scared to say anything. I think a lot of the people who want everyone on record are the ones doing the intimidating.

Great coverage

I just wanted to say that was a great write-up of the Sailors-Bulldogs game. Congratulations to the Sailors on a hard-fought win. In my 30-plus years of watching football, that's the best high school game I have ever seen. I heard a lot of others around me in the stands saying the same. Your sportswriter does a fantastic job of covering and writing about all the local teams, and I for one really appreciate it. Keep up the great work.

Sound Off is silly

Sound Off is silly. Get rid of it.

Don't change policy

Yes, of course we should allow them. The present policy has worked for a long time. Let's leave it like it is. There are Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and 4-H. There are a lot of good educational groups out there that are not directly connected with our schools that are very appropriate for our schools.

Likes Sound Off

My name is Linda Valenzuela Hawkins. I want you to print my name. I was very offended by that man who said we should take away Sound Off. I come from a large suburb of Los Angeles and I think the fact that Steamboat has this is just marvelous. We need a platform to share our ideas. That's what makes America great. I just don't understand why that man doesn't want it.

Don't read it

If you don't like Sound Off, then don't read it. I think it's great. It's the first thing I read in the Sunday newspaper.

Evaluate process

The City Council needs to look at the process the city is using to estimate building costs. The Tennis Center and the artificial turf field came in way over budget. That's telling us that something in the city's figuring is way off base. It's hurting the whole process.

Too conservative

I do not like the changes to your opinion page. You already have Mallard Fillmore every day. Why do you need to add columnists like Cal Thomas and Kathleen Parker? I do not think I have ever seen a newspaper that is so right wing. You need to look at what you are doing and bring more balance to the editorial pages. That's the only fair thing to do.I do like Tom Friedman and Maureen Dowd, but not Jonah Goldberg.
