Betty Leipold: Bring back whistle

— What other town has an unusual name like Steamboat Springs, or a Butcherknife Creek running through it, or a Yacht Club in the middle of the Rockies, or a whistle that blasts off every noon?

Why don't we get rid of all our unique history and become Anywhere, USA?

Maybe the newcomers then would be satisfied.

You go Betty! Where I grew up the local factory had whistles at 8:00 noon and 5. I knew if I was late for school, etc. I loved hearing the Steamboat whistle from the top of the mountain on a big snowing powder day.
