And then only report it if the bear or lion is about to eat the cat.

We have got to stop these people from driving around in semitrailers without the "semitruck" attached and I'm sure we'd have a lot less accidents.

"11:12 p.m. A man reported a group of people on bicycles and skateboards riding down the middle of Bob Adams Drive."

I see this report at least twice a week in the paper. Is it illegal to ride bikes and skateboards in Steamboat or just on "Bob Adams Drive"? Another example of wasting the cops time. The person reporting this ought to be cited themselves.

I laugh every time people call the police for dumb things like seeing a loose cat. Steamboat is the only place or newspaper in nation that reports these things in their paper. I agree with one person who said people should be ticketed for reporting these small things. Steamboat, your reputation is on the line, and I guess in a way what makes this town unique!! Please, people only report if you see a bear or lion, not a cat, for crying out loud!!!

. we love Steamboat... it is a beautiful town and we visited in September... great people and restaurants. We also enjoy your paper. It is therapy for those of us who live in larger cities to read the Record ... bears in dumpsters, a dog loose, and blonds in levis walking in the street. It sure as heck beats drive- by shootings, armed robberies, and murders. Thanks and hope to visit your town again soon.

pt 22 no way would we make the mistake ... trying to change what you have left of the good life and the reason people come to Steamboat in the first place... which is so sad. However, after checking your real estate prices, we fear we are resigned to staying put in the Midwest..... but visiting often. Despite the changes, you live in a beautiful place. Thanks for your response.

I'm the one who suggested ticketing people for B.S. should happen far to many hours of SSPD time is wasted on this crap..cows in a trailor..HELLO going to market..enjoy your steak

I have lived here for 13 years, and I have always loved reading the Record. It's great fun to laugh at the "suspicious white rabbit on Jefferson Street" in Hayden, or wonder why someone would call 911 because the person in a car failed to use a turn signal. It also makes me appreciate that the police officers in our town have to deal with everything from assault to a cat sighting with the same degree of professionalism. Keep those good stories coming!

If you saw four guys parked in a car at the 7-11 drinking Heinekin, and the driver pulled out and drove away after taking a swig from his bottle (concealed ineffectively by a small paper bag), would you call it in to 9-1-1?

Open containers, driver drinking from one . . .

Does it justify a call?

If its concealed by a small pager bag, how do you know they are drinking a Heinekin's ?
