I just wanted to give a warm and thankful shout-out to the folks at the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club for welcoming my son and me so warmly to the last Hitchens Brothers Jump Series this past Wednesday night. We drove up from Erie on a whim so my son could give his dream of trying what he saw in the Olympics a try.
Totally Kids would like to thank the Hayden community. Without people giving their time, we would not be able to provide these programs. Volunteers are the basis of all of our programs.
In a March 6 article on the front page of the Steamboat Today, residents of Steamboat Springs learned that Steamboat Springs City Manager Deb Hinsvark is once again using “work product” communications with the City Council as a means of shielding those communications from the public.
Regarding Sally Claassen’s letter to the editor titled “Caucuses start Tuesday.” I want to applaud Sally Claassen for her promotion of the caucuses and compliment her on what was almost her non-partisan letter.
I like reading Rob Douglas’s columns. We share a similar philosophy on most topics. However, I was led to wonder about his latest column “Who’s driving city policy?” I have no doubt that there may be some legitimate reasons for being disgruntled with the performance of current city manager Deb Hinsvark.
I am a part-time resident of Steamboat, who takes great delight in my frequent visits to my home here. It is an absolute pleasure to return here, and be welcomed by old friends, as well as meet new ones.
Many of you will have seen the initial articles about updated air emission rules for oil and gas development in Colorado, passed as of Sunday. The real story is that all of Colorado, but especially the Western Slope, won big, and Routt County and Community Alliance of the Yampa Valley played an integral part in the groundwork for that win.
Approximately one decade ago I commented to a then-Steamboat Springs city councilperson that I did not see how council was able to make consistent, logical decisions given what appeared to be a random stream of ideas, suggestions, concepts arriving on their desks. That person asked what I meant.
Our friends Guy and Arlene Lothian come to Steamboat every year for some good skiing. Often a particularly fine run will inspire Guy to write a poem:
Steamboat is Ski Town USA, Bike Town USA, Kid Town USA. Our Steamboat youths have unique access to sports and its benefits, yet to facilitate the most of the opportunities out there, we must remain informed and continue to cultivate our understanding of the relationship of sports in our children’s lives. No one article, lecture or experience can be all-encompassing, but here are some thoughts I shared with the Alpine team for athletes ranging from ages 10 to 20 years and older in the form of a letter.
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?
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.
