Paul Stettner: Care to share the letter?

This is an open letter to Senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardener and Rep. Scott Tipton.

Vanda Nohinek: Keep Triple Crown out

I agree with the recent letters about Triple Crown Sports.

Ken Collins: No harm, no foul

The third leg of our government consists of four men who obviously loved the 1950s, four others who seem to realize we’re in the 21st century and one guy who sits on the fence falling either direction at times.

Arty Smith: Cabaret 2015 thrilling

Being in Cabaret has been my dream for six years.

Soda Creek Elementary students: Help keep bears wild

This year Ms. Kalmes’ fourth-grade class and Ms. Sattlers’ first-grade class at Soda Creek Elementary have worked together on a Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots community mapping project to help educate students and the community about keeping bears wild and people safe by being responsible about people’s trash.

Our view: New attractions, new revenue

Long before Steamboat Ski Area attracted visitors to the slopes of Mount Werner with promises of Champagne powder, there was Howelsen Hill.

Mary Ellen Denomy: Trustees appreciated

After so many years of service, I would like to tout the outstanding work of three of the trustees of Colorado Mountain College: Ken Brenner, Dr. Robert (Bob) Taylor and Kathy Goudy.

Charity Neal: Immunizations protect

Vaccines have dramatically changed the landscape of infectious diseases. Thanks to vaccines, diseases such as polio, tetanus, Hib, yellow fever and diphtheria — illnesses that have caused tremendous disability and death in the past (and still do in some parts of the world) — are rarely seen in the U.S.

Our view: Well-funded transit system a must

A well-funded, reliable transportation system is a must in Steamboat.

Abbott: Only one botanic park

In your editorial regarding the Yampa River Botanic Park and Triple Crown, you said that you believe the new railroad crossing will remove “any reasonable objections to ongoing requests from Triple Crown Sports to use baseball diamonds at Emerald Park.” I would ask you to consider a different point of view.

Kiely: Potential breach of faith

This letter is regarding your editorial “Diamonds and emeralds.”

Our view: Westward ho!

The bike-themed Coffee and a Newspaper, sponsored by the Steamboat Pilot & Today last Wednesday night, attracted more than 75 people and sparked a lively discussion between members of the community and representatives from bike groups and land managers across town.

Robin Stone: Can’t have and eat cake

I beg to disagree with the paper’s viewpoint on Triple Crown being held at Emerald Park. Did you happen to see last summer’s Piknik Theater original production, Botanica?  Simply put, the show’s theme involved turning the Steamboat Botanical Garden into a water park to bring in more tax dollars. 

Our view: Step up and serve

Opportunities abound to serve on public boards.

Wedel: Pot grows undercharged

The Oak Creek town government has, on numerous occasions, told citizens of the benefits of approving marijuana businesses and how those businesses are “paying their way.” I think that is not true for water and electric utilities.
