In the article entitled “Winter air service plan program approved” in Wednesday’s Steamboat Today, readers should take note that Mr. Porter, LMD chairman, exclusively uses the term “seats” when referring to the rosy colored picture of the program.
I still think the most logical place for a new police station is the Iron Horse Inn.
I thought the opinion of the Steamboat Today that gave advice to Oak Creek was cavalier. Does any of your staff live in Oak Creek? When stating that “we urge, we think,” who actually is the we?
I think it would be helpful to explain to the town why you should drive all the way up to the merge point in construction zones.
U.S. Forest Service law enforcement officer Nick Walters said he hoped the community was “appalled” by recent partying at Buffalo Pass that caused damage to the popular outdoor destination, and on behalf of local residents, we are. Forest Service officials report that partying on the pass is an ongoing problem, especially during holidays, and we are disturbed by this trend for a number of reasons.
Our goal for the water plan is to provide a path forward for providing Coloradans with the water we need in the future while seeking to maintain such divergent values as healthy watersheds and environment, robust recreation and tourism economies, vibrant and sustainable cities and viable and productive agriculture.

By sheer serendipity, I have been immersed in World War II as of late. I awoke a few days ago noticing it was Sept. 1 and, being a history buff, remembered this was the beginning of WWII when the Nazis invaded Poland (and the Soviets a few weeks later, lest we forget.)
Recently, we had the absolute pleasure of meeting “Simon,” one of the firefighters stationed at the Yampa Valley Regional Airport in Hayden.
This is in response to Terri Willliamson’s letter, “Impact of Words,” published Thursday regarding the use of bicycle bells. During one of my regular summer visits about five years ago, I wrote in the same vein.
Dennis Webb’s recent article chronicling the Environmental Protection Agency’s visit to Craig to discuss their new carbon pollution safeguards illustrated some common misunderstandings about the pollution limits.
Steamboat Springs generally gives a warm welcome to the many visitors who come to enjoy the community events and outdoor activities here. Most restaurant servers are very friendly.
May I call attention to a serious proposal facing our community? The city of Steamboat Springs is proposing to spend $146,000 worth of work at the animal shelter next year to install a new stem wall and snowmelt system. These improvements are needed, but why should the city pay for this when a volunteer organization, the Routt County Humane Society, has offered to take over operations from the City?
Many thanks to the more than 200 participants in last Sunday’s Walk for Wilderness, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the passage of the Wilderness Act. We hope that everyone gained a deeper appreciation of America’s more than 700 Wilderness Areas and especially our local favorites: the Mount Zirkel, Sarvis Creek and Flattops Wilderness areas.
