At Home: Letters to the Editor
November 23, 2011
Steamboat Springs — The Summer 2011 At Home issue includes a wonderful interview and photograph of my daughter, Mary Langer Bowman. I appreciate the work you did on this story. I'd like to buy several prints of the photograph. My compliments to you all — we always enjoy the paper and magazine whenever we're in Steamboat.

The summer At Home magazine you produced is spectacular. The personal stories and the way you told them moved me to tears multiple times. Amidst the craziness around us every day, it was such a refreshing hour of goodness. Thanks and keep up the good work.

Socks for Seniors
I know your town has two major sock companies, SmartWool and Point 6, and the locals are friendly and caring. For 10 years, my wife and I have organized an annual community project during the holidays called "Socks For Seniors" where we collect new socks to distribute to elderly in nursing homes. We're looking for community partners to help us expand the program in Steamboat. Those interested in helping can visit http://www.socksforseniors.com.

Thanks for the story on the Fairview Fiesta. This year's event was a success as always, with the theme of No Taxation without Misrepresentation. Throughout the Fiesta, we discussed establishing a "Tour de Fairview" to support the city's Bike Town USA Initiative (including a century ride totally within the Fairview community limits); a seasonal stream-naming contest; an annual Fairview "Goats do Roam" Wine Festival; a minimum noise permissible by residents for parties at 100 decibels (anything less is just not a party); a new Fairview 700 Project for local infill; and a "Fly Fairview" program, including a 0.3789 percent tax surcharge on beer to promote more winter visitors. Long live Fairview Nation!
