The Steamboat Springs City Council will again take up plans for a new community center when the council meets at 5 p.m. today in Centennial Hall.

An open house in memory of Paul Maniaci will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the home of Nancy and Gary Gray at 48 Maple Street.

A memorial service will be held in Gunnison at a later date.
Opinions are strong on either side of a proposed ordinance to regulate formula stores in the city. Ty Lockhart, owner of F.M.

Main Street Steamboat Springs is hosting a discussion on the topic at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, at Bank of the West, 555 Lincoln Ave.
The Education Fund Board is reviewing its policy for giving money to charter schools, a move that has caught the attention of North Routt Community Charter School head of school Colleen Poole. Since arriving at the charter school in 2004, Poole has gone before the Fund Board for three separate requests for a total of $47,000 - not a substantial amount of money considering the Fund Board annually spends more than $2 million in half-cent sales tax dollars. Poole wants to make sure the charter school will remain eligible for Fund Board dollars.
