Most residents in our area are aware that hunters are an important source of income for area businesses during various hunting seasons.
I think Wednesday's 6 p.m. Oak Creek Planning Commission meeting could be the most important meeting in years. After the joint meeting of the Town Board and Planning Commission last month, this meeting is to discuss fundamental sweeping changes to the land use code affecting every property owner.
The town of Oak Creek is currently wrestling with the new and emerging retail marijuana business, its placement within town and the concerns of its residents to this new and not wholly accepted industry.
Fifteen years ago, a group of committed volunteers formed the Routt County affiliate of Habitat for Humanity — International with the mission of building or renovating simple, safe houses with people in need in our community. Over the years, through the generosity of hundreds of individuals, companies and nonprofits, Routt County Habitat was able to build 10 single-family/duplex units and 20-plus renovations.
Last Wednesday evening the place to be was at Ciao Gelato. Warmth and love were circulating the air as patrons stopped in to say goodbye to Lynne and Massimo and their wonderful staff.
Although it is bittersweet to see a local tradition fade away, it is always exciting to accept change and a challenge. The Kiwanis Club has decided to let the commemorative Christmas ornaments become a thing of the past. We look forward to developing new ways to raise funds in support of the growing needs of our community.

The Soup Nazi freely chose what to serve and how to serve it. His customers voted with their taste buds. Good cooking trumped bad manners. Life recently imitated art when, in San Francisco, a restaurateur lost it in response to customers who could not order right. James Chu’s restaurant offered old-fashioned, conventional fare, and he got “fed up with trying to satisfy every single patron’s particular demands.”
We would like to offer a big helping of gratitude toward Lynne, Massimo and their family for all they have provided to our community throughout the past five years through Ciao Gelato.
It is upsetting and sad that Ciao Gelato will be closing its doors this week. Ciao is one of those beautiful places that bring a smile to my face and a warmth to my heart, even aside from the comforting satisfaction to my taste buds.
My wife and I love Steamboat, and in general, we love all that Routt County has to offer. We love it so much that we are slowly transitioning our lives from South Florida to our home in Stagecoach.
In response to the Routt County Humane Society’s articles regarding taking over the Steamboat Springs/Routt County Animal Shelter, the Routt County Sheriff’s Office would like to address some points made by the RCHS.
Long before I was a state senator, before becoming a small-business owner but right after I had started my own family, I became a licensed professional engineer. I was motivated by the opportunity to better my wife and children, and I loved the opportunity to fix things and to solve complex problems. Along the way, I became inspired by the Engineer’s Code of Ethics.
