Topping the news this morning, the race for Routt County sheriff is getting expensive.

Tapes of a secret meeting held September 25 in Oak Creek show three town employees thought former Mayor Kathy Cargo Rodeman was too involved in town business and was acting as town manager, not the town's mayor. The employees who complained were Town Clerk Karen Halterman, Billing Clerk Vivian Johnson and Public Works Director Jim Photos. The Steamboat Pilot & Today challenged the legality of the closed meeting and forced the release of the tapes of the meeting. For more, visit seamboatpilot.com

South Routt School District officials believe school security and the safety of its staff and students is one of the most important issues facing the small, rural district. On Wednesday, Superintendent Kelly Reed, Soroco Secondary Principal James Chamberlin, South Routt Elementary School Principal Michael Young and district director of operations and maintenance, Maurice Glenn, met with county law enforcement and emergency personnel to discuss emergency preparedness and response. The meeting lasted nearly 90 minutes, and was one of several things the district is doing to maximize school security and safety, Reed said. He added that there have been administrative team and accountability team meetings regarding school safety, as well. Subsequent meetings, drills, building upgrades and communication are being scheduled for the near future.

The former Bottleneck building downtown will be the new home for businesses that cater to children and moms. Laura Bischoff, owner of Lola's Closet, Steamboat Kids and Bliss Maternity and Baby Couture, is moving her stores into the first floor of the building at 734 Lincoln Ave. Bischoff said the site is a better location for her businesses.

In Sports, The Steamboat Springs Sailors can wrap up the Western Slope League Championship Friday against Battle Mountain.

The Hayden Tigers also are in the drivers seat in Class 1A after defeating league rival Meeker on Friday. Like Steamboat, Hayden is 8-1 overall and 5-1 in league play.

Good Morning Oak Creek,

Have you folks been sleeping? Have any of you been around for the past thirty years? The Town of Oak Creek got what it asked for!!!! Cargo and the Cargettes have been running the town into the ground for YEARS!!! We must audit everything she did. Excuse me, but do any of the citizens know how many lives have been destroyed or permanently altered by our (hopefully never elected again) x-MAYOR! Do the homework FOOLS. She is never wrong, gets arrested multiple times for DUI's and drugs but never goes to jail, destroyed many a marriage, thinks she is above the law and proved it with her many assaults on people including minors without prosecution. Many of her X-friends have left the area, ended up addicted, divorced, in jail or DEAD! The comments that I have made have been a long time coming and if any citizen has been around long enough, then you all know it is true. !!!!!!!I wonder what BLUE would think of this??? Cargo, Go back to your sewer people and fall in.

cargo (anonymous) November 25, 2006 at 11:58 a.m. (Suggest removal) Let's get one thing straight. I am not the victim, the Town is. I have no computor and did not read any of your rantings until yesterday. I have intentionally refrained from telling my children anything about all of the ugliness associated with my resignation and subsequent rescintion. I found out this morning that someone had told my oldest son about the the infantile blubberings on this site and I am now compelled to chime in. (NOT anonymously) I was elected 3 times by the majority of Oak Creek voters as mayor and those elections were not intended to be a popularity contest with the employees. I could care less how many of you like me or approve of how I ran the office of mayor and I venture to guess most of you know little or nothing of what you speak. I have friends and acquaintances in all walks of life and virtually every occupation. The idiotic generalization that all my friends are various types of low-lives is absurd and midget-minded. If you spineless fools want to bash me, go right ahead. Leave the Town, my friends and MOST IMPORTANTLY,my children out of this. No one can take away all of the good that has occurred over the last four years. Those who insist the Town couldn't afford these many projects should get it through their impotent heads that the Town couldn't afford NOT to make these improvements. The ignorant statements about boycotting the local business that have the audacity to allow the support petitions in their establishments, need to realize that the sales taxes paid by those businesses go directly to the general fund. Remember, the general fund is the ONE fund that IS in deficit. If you don't shop locally, you will not only hurt the revenues of the general fund, you may not have that business available in the future when you wake up to your ignorance. If you have something you would like to say to me, my phone is 736-8529. If your thrill is seeing your uninformed puke in print and inciting hatred, I guess you'll continue as you have been. With all of the REAL problems in this world, your focus on me seems a waste of your obvious excess time and energy. If you all unite that time and energy towards the betterment of your world insteadof the belittlementof me, I'd imagine you could accomplish a positive effect in most any area. I wish you all peace, laughter and a wonderful holiday season with your families.
