John Shipley, president of the Steamboat Springs Pro Rodeo Series board of directors, likes to remind the Steamboat Springs community of a historical fact — before we were Ski Town USA or Bike Town USA, we were “Cow Town USA,” and it’s a brand we’d be smart to continue to promote.
Thank you for printing the letter from Jeff Peters on Feb. 11.
I admit to not being involved and therefore uneducated about the need for a new police station. However, from reading this newspaper's articles, it seems that the need for a new $10 million police station has been established. Has it?
When catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) proponents resort to using the term "denier" to discount the views of those with whom they disagree about the urgent criticality of climate change, it’s a reliable signal that they’ll be unwilling to open-mindedly exchange thoughts on the topic.
A man named Ryan kayaked the whole Colorado and wrote about what he saw first hand in Wednesday’s Steamboat Today. And he gets railed at by a bunch of locals who I wonder; have they done that, seen what he saw?
Millions of skiers and riders have been inspired and motivated this week by the high-speed turns and aerial gyrations of Olympic athletes in the Rosa Khutor Alpine Center and Extreme Park in the mountains outside Sochi, Russia.
Last weekend, while we celebrated our winter sports heritage on Lincoln Avenue and cheered on our Olympic athletes in Sochi, Russia, the United Nations confirmed that 2013 was the sixth-warmest year on record. In fact, 13 of the 14 warmest years on record have occurred since 2000.
We think the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association is wise to invest in a customer service training program that already has a proven track record of success.
As I reflect on the 101st Winter Carnival weekend, I am awed by the way that my colleagues and the community came together to pull off what I believe was a "world-class" event in this special mountain town.
Mr. Moloney's letter was nothing more than an attempt to besmirch Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush with a list of Republican talking points.
Colorado’s mountains, rivers and open spaces form the very foundation of our way of life in the Centennial State. I know I am not alone in treasuring the experience of rafting the Yampa River and summiting Mount Zirkel in the Routt National Forest.
Already in 2014, the Yampa Valley has lost two visionaries who were among its most effective “doers” of the past half-century, with the Jan. 3 death of former Steamboat Ski Corp. executive Martin Hart followed closely by the death of former Routt County Commissioner Bill Haight on Feb. 2.
Throughout the past month or so, our current state representative has been meeting with constituents and providing commentary to the local paper. I have read the articles and attended two of these recent meetings — one with the Routt County Board of Commissioners and one with the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors. In both of these meetings, Rep. Diane Mitsch Bush touted her bipartisan achievements and her effectiveness as a legislator. I have to take exception with the picture that Mitsch Bush is painting of her “legislative accomplishments.”
In the unfortunate American media style of form over substance, there will be an abundance of human interest pieces about many of those selected for the team, but despite this overindulgence of feel-good stories that seem to monopolize the coverage of an otherwise spectacular event, the most fascinating stories of the Games often are never told: the stories of not making the Olympic team.
Coca-Cola’s “It’s Beautiful” was an ad that silenced the room as soon as it started. That song always does. You didn’t know whose ad it was, and it didn’t matter. To hear one of the most beautiful songs ever written, sung in so many languages, was a true tribute to the greatness of this country.
