So Rockie

You have appointed yourself as the official spokesperson of The Record?

Is one needed?


love_boat 8 years, 9 months ago

Poor Rockie must be an insomniac to spend so much time in the wee hours of the morning commenting on the fine job done by the observant citizens and police.

I would think it suspicious to get in your car and drive somewhere at midnight to walk your dog.

Chest pains, hitting loose cattle and horses and vicious dog bites can all be lethal or expensive and time consuming. Rockie may suffer from bad Karma if laughing about it.
But better to be at your computer reviewing the Record than urinating in parking lots, driving drunk, beating up your spouse or getting in fights between midnight and 2 am.

Another busy day for our great police force here in town, with the way the calls have been going it is getting bizarre around here. I see more reports of animal sightings, and when police arrive the 'mystery' animal is gone. It would help if the animal were identified to start so the police would know what to look for, right? However, I think it is a waste of time to keep calling police when someone sees an animal on the road, unless of course it is a bear or mountain lion. I see a man was bitten by a dog, well I had a feeling dogs are starting to get tired of being called in every time they are spotted, so maybe this is their revenge. Also, the suspicious vehicle report is called in once again for a poor woman jogging with her dog, I guess we can add another characteristic of what is a 'suspicious vehicle' in Steamboat to the growing list. Another man with chest pains, it has really been happening a lot with chest pains and calls reported for this. I think stress levels are very high now, and teens are caught urinating in the street, just another day in town, or is it?

Seem to be lots of p[roblems with dawugs around Blue Sage Drive. Dog bites, dog complaints, etc.

Steamboat II has been the scene of lots of dog bites and dog complaints. How hard would it be for the animal control deputy to spend some time in there looking for loose animals around the time that people complain of them being loose? I know that the schedule used to be driven by AMWAY product deliveries back in the mid 90s, but is that still going on?

Blue Sage used to be pretty bad for dogs running out of nowhere trying to attack. I especially remember one golden retriever. I never got bit, but had some good scares when I used to run up there back when I used to run, it was a good uphill. Yeah, what is with rockie the blotter reporter? The commentary is inane so I don't read it but everyone needs a hobby!

Suspicious minds! You are not allowed to drive your car or walk your dog late at night? WOW! You must be one of the people calling the cops at all hours to report nothing!


rockie29 8 years, 9 months ago

Hmm, I sense a lot of jealousy among some of you. Maybe, you are the ones calling in every little thing to the record. By the way, I don't spend a lot of time, nor am I a spokesman. I sense the stress in a lot of the people's comments, chill out and enjoy the Record!


BoatMaster 8 years, 9 months ago

Oh yeah, sign me up as being Jealous of rockie.

I really, really want to be like he/she.....Unfortunately I have to go now and call the police on a bird in my backyard.


corduroy 8 years, 9 months ago

I cannot count how many times up on Blue Sage area when I lived there I had to dodge a dog just lying in the road napping, or running across in front of my car. Don't people worry about them getting hit?

Say you are driving through Steamboat on a trip late at night and your dog needs to pee.. I don't see what's so suspicious about that.. what a waste of time!!


rockie29 8 years, 9 months ago

Boatmaster you need some help it sounds like, maybe some counseling! Please admit to your problem.


rockie29 8 years, 9 months ago

oh by the way I sleep very well, and I laugh at some of the comments some of you make in reply to me! I think some of you take yourselves a little too seriously, or are the type that call in every little detail that annoy the authorities. Do that in another community and you would be laughed at, and discredited. Lucky you live here!
