We trust our endorsement of the Tennis Center and the management may add weight to the decision to maintain and improve a first-class asset for all the community to enjoy in years to come.
When you shop Steamboat, your dollars stay local, too. For every $1 spent at a locally owned business, it is estimated that 45 cents is reinvested in the local economy. When you shop online, that number is zero.
While the UGB has been beneficial, the Steamboat Pilot & Today thinks the plan should not be treated as a “sacred cow” that is never subject to review or revision. The proposal to discuss possible adjustments to the plan is healthy and an important step in planning for the city’s continued growth.
With great foresight, the founders of this nation endeavored to protect private property from the federal government. In the West, we know that this protection extends to privately held water rights.

Dec. 7, 2013, marks the 72nd anniversary of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese — also our entry into WWII. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, bless his memory, called it “a day that will live in infamy.”
