My name is Jacquelyn Greenspan, and my family was the one that lost our African Grey Parrot, Kahli, in Steamboat a little over a week ago.
If the city were to make Yampa Street one way from Fifth Street to 12th Street, there would be numerous benefits.
“The browning of America.” Wow. Of all you wrote, Omar, that line stood out (“Omar Campbell: Thoughts about Mexico,” Tuesday’s Steamboat Today).
Yampa Valley Electric Association’s purchase of 15 acres of TIC’s now-empty campus in West Steamboat as the site for its new headquarters made headlines all last week. Like many other business and community leaders, this editorial board views the real estate deal as a smart business decision and a win-win situation for the local electric cooperative and the community as a whole.
Mexico — a good neighbor? By comparison to our Canadian ally — no. The latter participated in WWII and the Mideast affairs.
Steamboat Springs is enjoying a restaurant renaissance, and visitors and locals alike are reveling in the new dining choices. New restaurants have opened in record numbers across downtown, and while the new venues are drawing diners, it’s important for owners and managers to remember that it is excellent service that brings customers back.
The 1970s were “groovy” and so where the kids who grew up here. Steamboat Springs was a sleepy town, boasting 2,340 residents when the decade began, and “boom town” 10 years later when the population had doubled from the gondola opening Mount Werner to skiers, condominiums and watering holes.
It is with a heavy heart that Craig and I (Andi) have decided to close the Animal Healing Center. Craig and I want you all to know that this decision was not made lightly. We both have enjoyed taking care of our patients and developing wonderful relationships with our clients. Owning the AHC has been a rewarding experience for us, and we have deep gratitude for all that we learned and for this special community of animal lovers.
This past week, a woman contacted us directly after reading an article the Steamboat Pilot & Today published on July 16 titled, “Police still offering drug detection kits.” The young woman told us about being victimized by someone using a date-rape drug. She did not want to be identified or interviewed for a news article, but she did want us to know about her experience to validate the problem and possibly save other women from the trauma she experienced following a normal night out with friends.
On behalf of the Steamboat Springs Soccer Club, I want to give a big thank you to the community of Steamboat Springs for your support and patience during our just completed 30th Steamboat Mountain Soccer Tournament.
As appealing as we find the proposal by Kevin Sankey and Mark Lynch to raise donations for a large athletic field house adjacent to the Strawberry Park schools, we understand why a majority of the Steamboat Springs School Board decided Thursday night against assuming ultimate financial responsibility for the facility. The purpose of the Steamboat Springs Athletic Center would only be tangential to the school district’s core mission of providing our youngsters with the best academic education we can afford.
As the city of Steamboat Springs continues its new master planning process for Howelsen Hill, it’s a good time for the community to reassess the value and importance of the park and weigh in on its future.
I walk the Yampa River Core Trail almost every day and this week, just east of Mount Werner Circle, there has been a cow and calf moose hanging around on the other side of the river most of the week bothering no one.
I think we Americans should be happy for the future of our country. In this time of many problems with many depths, there may be hope out there. It seems that many Republican members of Congress have stumbled onto something profound.
We were involved in an accident June 29, and while being involved in any accident is never a pleasant experience (especially when you are hundreds of miles from home), we could not have asked for better care and service from everyone.
