I am in full support of the proposal for a new high school on the west end of town in the proposed location. The proposal makes sense and makes good use of existing space.
As of yet, I have heard little about the smaller schools that will be affected by the upcoming education mill levy.
The Routt County Board of Commissioners took a step in the right direction this month when it dedicated a high-volume phone line to offering its constituents the ability to call in and listen to live public hearings. But let’s agree, it was a baby step in the digital era.
I have been a proud member of this community since the mid ’90s. We now have two young children who are beginning their journey into our public school system, which we have advocated even before their birth.
I wanted to pass on some thoughts about the charm and professionalism of small mountain towns such as Steamboat Springs and Hahns Peak.
Members of the Steamboat Springs City Council were divided in their decision to reduce funding to support an educational campaign for the winter air service program at Yampa Valley Regional Airport. In a 4-3 vote, Council opted to fund only half of a $50,000 request to help finance the effort, and we think that’s $25,000 too much.
The Steamboat Springs School District and a political action group chaired by one of the current school board members has crafted a campaign to try to convince the voters to support a new school construction plan that includes the construction of a new high school on the far west end of town.
We are new residents of Steamboat Springs. We chose Steamboat because our children are here, and we love the sense of community we felt every time we visited.
A big puzzler right now is there are 16 people (at this writing), 15 men and one woman, who are demanding that the federal government stop funding health care to almost three million American women. For most of those three million, it is the only affordable, easily attainable and most important health care they receive.
Nearly 1,500 rubber ducks bobbed along the Yampa River during the Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association’s Steamboat Rubber Ducky Race on Sept. 12. It was our first time hosting the event, and it was a success, raising important funds for our hospice and palliative care program.
Last Tuesday, the Routt County Board of Commissioners voted to accept the provisions of a new state law that will boost the salaries of elected county officials — including the salaries of the commissioners themselves — by some 60 percent.

While I don’t dismiss the merits of an early childhood education, I think as a “village” we need to thoroughly think through the idea of having Steamboat Springs School District provide preschool.
My husband and I uprooted our family and moved from Winter Park to Steamboat Springs a little more than a year ago so our twin boys, now 8, could grow up in a community with neighborhood schools.
The family of Mary Jo Barnes would like to express their sincere thanks and gratitude for the many expressions of sympathy, prayers and support during and after the loss of our mother.
