John F. Russell: Story more impressive than finish

It would be fair to say that Maggie Rose Carrigan’s finish at last week’s 2011 USASA Nationals is impressive, but it wasn’t as inspirational as her journey to get there.

Rick Akin: Hope springs eternal

With much sound and fury, the government shutdown (and interruption in the supply of government cheese) has been averted with a “historic” deal to cut $38.5 billion from anticipated government spending this fiscal year. But, folks, this is a sideshow. This “historic” cut is only about 1 percent of the roughly $3.82 trillion set to be spent this fiscal year (there is no actual budget for this year), and more than 0.27 percent of the national debt, which is almost $14.3 trillion.

Richard Levy: Protect health

The Colorado House of Representatives has introduced HB 1223 to change the makeup of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission. The proposed changes would add more industry professionals to the commission. Last year this COGCC issued the third largest number of drilling permits in Colorado history. Do we really need more?

Kevin Chapman: Ode to season pass

Omar M. Campbell: Let’s vote on pot

My respect for and admiration of the Steamboat Springs Police Department only increased when I read the April 6 Steamboat Today. Capt. Joel Rae had the audacity and courage to say what a lot of us more timid folk are reluctant to talk about — banning the so-called medical marijuana industry. Increasing DUIDs and reselling by licensed users to others was predictable. Kudos also to Dr. Harrington and two other local doctors who have spoken out on the adversities of this issue in the past.

Bruce Allbright: If it ain’t broke ...

My wife and I decided to settle in Steamboat Springs after a few nights in the Howelsen Place penthouse overlooking Ghost Ranch Saloon. Ghost Ranch Saloon looked fun, so we walked across the street to have dinner and enjoy some music. We slept well at Howelsen Place after a nightcap on the deck listening to more “city” sounds.

Seeking peace and quiet on noise issue in Steamboat

Police captain says flexibility remains under new proposal

Steamboat Springs Police Capt. Joel Rae said last week that proposed changes to city noise regulations would not change levels of enforcement. “Basically, there needs to be a victim when we’re talking about enforcing the noise ordinance. We are not going to be driving down the streets with our decibel meters,” Rae said. Rae’s comments followed a Tuesday night meeting, where City Council discussed potential revisions to the city’s noise regulations.

Joel Reichenberger: A lasting impression

April 2 dawned with nearly 100 racers clamoring to load the gondola at Steamboat Ski Area, early morning adventurers eager to participate in the third-annual Cody’s Challenge randonee race. From the start of the day’s race, through its base area finish and to a post-race party that rocked into the night, the spirit of Cody St. John, the man who the race was created to memorialize, was ever-present.
