I’m at an age where I consider whether various activities truly merit my time given the limited amount I have left. Cooperatively engaging in a staged exercise in propaganda reinforcement like the Environmental Protection Agency’s listening tour regarding carbon pollution control measures, well-intentioned or not, doesn’t make the cut.
What’s good for kids is good for the rest of us and good for our visitors. I am voting “yes” for Referendum 2A because I would like to see safer trail connections throughout our trail system within town.
Anytime you see the word sustainable in a narrative from a politician, you know they are well into the politics of the liberal establishment. That is exactly where we find Diane Mitsch Bush.
Like everyone else, I have been trying to learn as much as I can regarding Amendment 66. No one can deny that Amendment 66 is important to the citizens of Routt County and Colorado. This amendment will change the statewide financing of preschool through 12th-grade education.
This letter is written to respond to the editorial by Diane Mitsch Bush in the Oct. 18 Steamboat Today about why we should support Amendment 66. I am going to vote ‘no’ on this amendment for the reasons explained below.
I was shocked and deeply disappointed that three of the four Steamboat Springs School Board members voted not to support Amendment 66.
On Saturday, The Steamboat Grand hotel hosted the third annual Yampa Valley Wellness Conference. The facility and hospitality are first class, and the day was paid for by local sponsors.
Hopefully still fresh in our minds is that the good people of the city of Steamboat Springs generously offered ourselves a 0.25 percent sales tax increase basically donating that money to Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. to keep our air service program viable. The latest program results are a decrease of seats by 14 percent and decreased passenger count of 10 percent.
City Council should revise its approach to managing the activities of the Parks, Open Space and Recreational Services Department.
Steamboat Springs has come a long way in improving biking since I started riding here in 2006. Now, we have a tremendous opportunity to expand trails even more. I can’t vote, but if I could, I would vote for Referendum 2A.
It’s time to end the shutdown. In this showdown of shutdowns, I would like to clear up some major misconceptions on the part of supporters of the Affordable Care Act.
I will not argue here that the facility is not needed or that it is, only that the case has not been made. There have been other solutions proposed that may be a better use of our money.
The Knights of Columbus local Council 4462 would like to thank Ace Hardware and all of the generous folks of the community who helped with this past Columbus Day weekend fundraiser.
This November you will be asked to vote in favor of Amendment 66. This billion dollar per year tax increase, masked as education reform, will take money out of the pockets of Colorado taxpayers, cost districts such as Steamboat far more than will be returned to our schools, limit the ability to control education costs in the future and provide no assurance that these changes will lead to improved academic performance.
Prior to the government’s unconstitutional encroachment into the medical field, the free market provided health care at a price that the vast majority of Americans could afford. Abundant charitable sources provided medical care for those that could not afford it.
