Alvin Skiles wrote last week concerning the 20 percent price increase for over-70 senior skiers by the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp.
"In my view, a dedicated property tax to fund parks and recreation with an elected Parks and Recreation Commission is not the best choice for Steamboat." — Jim Webster
"We must be sure their education is guided by local people who are not controlled or unduly influenced by outside powers." — Michael Buccino
"This increase (in the cost of a senior ski pass) is a slap in the face to seniors, many who have skied Steamboat many years prior to reaching the senior age of 70.
"An outside (skating) rink would be invigorating to say the least and a great money maker." — Anne Kroeger
"A broadband planning effort is underway, which I applaud, but I feel that the recent plan from Neo Fiber submitted to the county is focused too much on long-term goals of redundancy, and attracting other middle mile providers, but does not adequately address the more immediate needs of our underserved residents." — Jon Quinn
"Does Ski Corp. really appreciate the contributions aging skiers have made?" — Bob Burks
"Music education is the breath of life for the quality of our schools and community; let’s not let it suffocate." — Mary Anne Fairlie
Government scandals are one of the most important issues; most citizens don’t know much about it, as most news organizations only cover breaking news issues or, in some cases, don’t cover at all.
"We have known for years that broadband is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity in today’s world." — Josh Nowak
"I would like to take a moment to write a letter of sincere thanks on behalf of the North Routt Preschool to the community for their support for our Easter fundraiser." — Alexandra Mathisen
"Although I have lived in Steamboat since 1973, this is my first letter to the Steamboat Pilot & Today, but necessary for the debt of gratitude I feel to Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp.’s Ski Patrol and Yampa Valley Medical Center’s emergency department." — R.B. Rick Fisher
A big "thank you" to Mambo Italiano restaurant, Natural Grocers and Wells Fargo Bank.
"If someone is skiing at 70, it is because they have supported their local ski mountain for at least 20 to 50 years." — Patti and Tom Zener
"Year after year you adorn your offices, schools, homes and businesses with our cheerful daffodils." — Lisa Brown
