Daniel Tyler: Polish up post office

As winter visitors pour into town, I am reminded how important it is for us to show them a good time, a quality ski experience and a community that takes pride in public and private buildings. What a great library and justice center we have. What a wonderful hospital and community center.

Kevin Copeland: Read up on climate

Do you presently accept the alarmist prophecies of this administration, its EPA and countless, unelected, unaccountable environmental extremists and bureaucrats, spewing misrepresented doomsday rhetoric about the changing climate ? If so, enlighten yourself with the following facts.

Chuck McConnell: Hold all accountable

It seems as if every week there is another story about police misconduct. Sadly, the anti-police attitude is spreading across our nation.

Brian Kotowski: History repeats itself

The Donald Trump show continues to attract spectators similar to passersby to a train wreck. His latest feat: calling for a temporary ban on all Muslim travel to the United States. Tremendous outrage has ensued.

Heather Sloop: Sloop explains position

You voted for transparency and action in this year’s election, and I think you have a right to gain a better understanding of my position regarding the police investigation report.

Scott Wedel: Rate increase wrong

Today, the Oak Creek Town Board is scheduled to approve a 10 percent across-the-board increase to water rates. This simply is wrong, and the good residents of Oak Creek should not tolerate it. The rate increase is projected to bring in about $40,000 in additional revenues.

Jim Webster: To be open to change

About one month ago I wrote a letter to the editor about some people’s propensity to resist change despite overwhelming evidence the surrounding environment had altered. I referred to my frustration with the new layout at City Market in my search for frozen blueberries, the voters’ rejection of a plan for a new school and resistance to evidence of climate warming.

Eric Meyer: Keep your trail systems

Steamboat Springs is in a position few other places in the country can claim in respect to significant planned trail expansion on local and federal government lands. This has been made possible through the relationships built with local land managers and the strong majority of voters approving the capital investment in trails using a portion of the taxes collected on short term accommodations.

Kate Nowak: Thank you community

Hosting the Community Thanksgiving Dinner has been a long tradition for Routt County United Way.

I teach science at Soroco High School and have chosen to stay primarily because of the quality of the student-centered school community I found when I arrived four years ago.
