Paul Stettner: Care to share the letter?

This is an open letter to Senators Michael Bennet and Cory Gardener and Rep. Scott Tipton.

Vanda Nohinek: Keep Triple Crown out

I agree with the recent letters about Triple Crown Sports.

Ken Collins: No harm, no foul

The third leg of our government consists of four men who obviously loved the 1950s, four others who seem to realize we’re in the 21st century and one guy who sits on the fence falling either direction at times.

Arty Smith: Cabaret 2015 thrilling

Being in Cabaret has been my dream for six years.

Soda Creek Elementary students: Help keep bears wild

This year Ms. Kalmes’ fourth-grade class and Ms. Sattlers’ first-grade class at Soda Creek Elementary have worked together on a Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots community mapping project to help educate students and the community about keeping bears wild and people safe by being responsible about people’s trash.

Mary Ellen Denomy: Trustees appreciated

After so many years of service, I would like to tout the outstanding work of three of the trustees of Colorado Mountain College: Ken Brenner, Dr. Robert (Bob) Taylor and Kathy Goudy.

Charity Neal: Immunizations protect

Vaccines have dramatically changed the landscape of infectious diseases. Thanks to vaccines, diseases such as polio, tetanus, Hib, yellow fever and diphtheria — illnesses that have caused tremendous disability and death in the past (and still do in some parts of the world) — are rarely seen in the U.S.

Abbott: Only one botanic park

In your editorial regarding the Yampa River Botanic Park and Triple Crown, you said that you believe the new railroad crossing will remove “any reasonable objections to ongoing requests from Triple Crown Sports to use baseball diamonds at Emerald Park.” I would ask you to consider a different point of view.

Kiely: Potential breach of faith

This letter is regarding your editorial “Diamonds and emeralds.”

Robin Stone: Can’t have and eat cake

I beg to disagree with the paper’s viewpoint on Triple Crown being held at Emerald Park. Did you happen to see last summer’s Piknik Theater original production, Botanica?  Simply put, the show’s theme involved turning the Steamboat Botanical Garden into a water park to bring in more tax dollars. 

Wedel: Pot grows undercharged

The Oak Creek town government has, on numerous occasions, told citizens of the benefits of approving marijuana businesses and how those businesses are “paying their way.” I think that is not true for water and electric utilities.

Stanko: Pack city hall Tuesday

On Tuesday, the city of Steamboat Springs is being honored as being “The Most Veteran-Friendly Little City in Colorado.” The City Council will recognize this award with a proclamation at 5 p.m. in the City Council chambers.

Annabeth Light Lockhart: 'Spring' is a better term

Spring is a much nicer-sounding term than mud season.

Timothy V. Corrigan: Saving the sage grouse

The greater sage grouse should be protected.

Community members: In support of URA, TIF

I am writing to express my support for the downtown URA with TIF financing. I am a strong supporter of our schools and our downtown, and I think this URA will benefit our community as a whole, just as the URA at the base area has.
