We trust our endorsement of the Tennis Center and the management may add weight to the decision to maintain and improve a first-class asset for all the community to enjoy in years to come.
When you shop Steamboat, your dollars stay local, too. For every $1 spent at a locally owned business, it is estimated that 45 cents is reinvested in the local economy. When you shop online, that number is zero.
As Colorado Mountain College’s “Campaign to Sustain the Miracle on a Mountain” winds to a close, each of us involved and all of those who have benefited want to express our gratitude to the philanthropists who supported Lucy Bogue’s dream that is now the “new” CMC-Steamboat. The new student Academic Center on Woodchuck Hill truly is something in which each of us takes great pride.
With all the news these days about iPhones being stolen by not so stellar people, it is wonderful to experience just the opposite here in Steamboat.
There have been some very anti-Obama and anti-Democratic letters in the paper lately. Fine. It’s called free speech. Maybe not fair, but free.
Dec. 7, 2013, marks the 72nd anniversary of the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor by the Japanese — also our entry into WWII. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, bless his memory, called it “a day that will live in infamy.”

There is a land-use proposal being discussed by the City of Steamboat Springs and Routt County. This proposal to modify the criteria for changes to the Urban Growth Boundary could affect the long-term quality of life of our community. This initiative is under the radar even though it is the most important land-use proposal since Steamboat 700.
The recent article about the major tire transfer prompts me to highlight the amount of work that has been accomplished by Saw Wisecup and the Cole family.
Water Rights bill is a disaster for rivers and public lands.
The Constitution provides for removal from office of public officials. “Bribery, treason and other high crimes and misdemeanors” are the most often cited reasons. However, actions that “subvert the structure of government or undermine the integrity of office or even the Constitution itself” are also “high” offenses deserving impeachment. Charges are made by the House and tried by the Senate.
