Colorado’s resort communities are usually full of politicians who demagogue the oil and gas industry. This is not the case with the new Routt County Board of Commissioners. Commissioners Tim Corrigan and Steve Ivancie joined incumbent Commissioner Doug Monger after being sworn in January 2013 and December 2012, respectively.

On May 1, an article in the Greeley Tribune explained how oil and gas production has helped Weld County. From two companies the county has received $148 million in property taxes. One of the benefits listed was free groundwater monitoring for residents concerned about their water wells.
Storm Mountain Express applauds the Steamboat Today editorial board for its position (“Despite flaws, airport decision right,” May 5 Pilot & Today) regarding our pursuit to provide “limited” walk-up service to passengers arriving at Yampa Valley Regional Airport. Storm Mountain Express has provided a quality, customer-oriented transportation service to the guests of our community for the past 16 years.

There is misinformation about the amended, final Senate Bill 252. Let me share what I know from my research and outreach, which led me to demand changes to the bill.
This past week, about 40 of your city’s residents descended on our park at the same time. These people were some of the kindest and friendliest campers ever to visit here.
When the Founding Fathers wrote the Second Amendment, they were thinking about one-shot muskets or pistols, not automatic and semi-automatic weapons capable of killing scores of people.
