Anti-Second Amendment Colorado Sen. Hudak resigned last Wednesday rather than face a recall election, which she was certain to lose.
The 4 Yellow Foundation is moving on. Our volunteer committee members have returned to their family and business lives. However, 4 Yellow is forever.
Throughout the Amendment 66 discussions, we heard three things loud and clear — this community supports education, and given our growth and education goals, there is a funding need on the horizon. Third, supporting our education system is a bipartisan, shared value.
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.

Why wait until a health crisis arises or a terminal diagnosis is received to make your wishes known? Have you started thinking about and talking about how you want the end of your life to be? As hospice providers, we work with families facing these tough questions each day.
The Steamboat Pilot & Today editorialized recently in opposition to Amendment 66. It also has published several letters both pro and con. Much of the discussion has been focused on the fact that Routt County will pay more in taxes than it will get back in education dollar benefits.
If only it were true that the $1 billion tax increase was going to result in dramatically improved student performance. If it were true that Colorado per capita school spending is near the bottom of the list of all states, then perhaps there would be some reason to abandon our flat income tax rate for not only an increase, but also a progressive tax. But neither assertion is supported by fact.
