Heritage Christian School’s first-ever Scholastic Book Fair held last week was a great success. Contributions from Safeway, City Market and Coleman Cook of Colorado Group Realty along with private donations added to the funds raised for the school.
On Tuesday night in Centennial Hall, we heard many spirited debates for and against the Steamboat Springs Trails Alliance initiative.
The Steamboat Springs School Board should move forward with a plan to make all five of its seats at-large positions instead of seats tied to specific geographic boundaries within the school district.
I love star lore. The legends and stories attached to the stars carry us back centuries and tell us not only about the stars, but also about the stargazers of old.
Importantly, any decision about building a new police station shouldn’t be made without clarity on what the implications are for the city’s fire department.
Thank you for the supplement in Friday’s paper celebrating athletics in the Yampa Valley. It’s great to recognize their achievements and impart the tenants of hard work, commitment and determination to many of our younger, up-and-coming student athletes.
Thank God — and Fox News — we got a bunch of facts this week and some of us are having trouble wiping the vindicated smiles off our faces.
Since being elected and taking over the duties and responsibilities of sheriff, I am humbled more than I ever thought possible as I experience the highs and lows of serving in such a diverse position.
I disagree with the editorial published in Tuesday’s edition of the Steamboat Today (“Keep it rolling, Steamboat”).
The time has come for us to give back to someone who has contributed so much to this community. As many of you know, Scott Blair has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. Scott has helped so many people in this community, including myself, and it is time for us to repay him by opening our hearts, and our wallets, to help a friend.
Four years into the Bike Town USA initiative, it’s hard to see anything but positives about the long-term vision as well as the specific projects that have been completed and the many more on the to-do list.
I believe that in the letter published in the Saturday Steamboat Today (“Applaud commission”), Harry Thompson, Steve Elkins, Amy Williams and Jody Camilletti (on behalf of Citizens Supporting Private Property Rights) misinterpreted the comments and actions of the Routt County Board Commissioners at the hearing regarding the Entek oil and gas well.
I was at the new post office yesterday to pick up mail and had several pieces to mail. I searched the post office for 40 minutes looking for a mail slot, and there was none to be found. I finally had to take the mail outside to the drive-up box to get it mailed. Good job Steamboat, you have to be the only post office in the states that does not have a place for customers to mail letters.
Just in the nick of time last week, Colorado lawmakers came together to pass legislation establishing the regulatory framework for retail marijuana business in the state.
Colorado’s resort communities are usually full of politicians who demagogue the oil and gas industry. This is not the case with the new Routt County Board of Commissioners. Commissioners Tim Corrigan and Steve Ivancie joined incumbent Commissioner Doug Monger after being sworn in January 2013 and December 2012, respectively.
