Lawrence C. Glueck: Vote ‘no’ on BID

To downtown Steamboat Springs business owners: I am writing to encourage you to vote in the upcoming Business Improvement District election and to urge you to vote “no.”

Paula Salky: Anthem deserves respect

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Steamboat Springs High School Sailors football game against Grand Junction Central. The ending was a fantastic win. The beginning left a lot to be desired. With the football game? No. With the National anthem? Yes.

Becky Slamal: Partners thank riders

Partners in Routt County would like to thank Routt County Riders, Steamboat Bike Town and Steamboat Ski and Bike Kare for sharing their passion for pedaling with 11 Routt County youths, many of whom are waiting for mentors.

Medora Fralick: Vote ‘yes’ on mill levy

In the upcoming election, I find myself spending more time voting “against” one candidate than “for” the other. Nothing feels really good about most of the candidates or issues.

Andrea Wilhelm: Another perspective

As the human resources director at Casey’s Pond Senior Living, I felt it was important to communicate a perspective on how the city’s recent decision about parking on Owl Hoot Trail will affect our employees, residents, guests and daily operations.

Callie Bradley: 1st DitchFest a success

If you weren’t in Decker Park in Oak Creek on Sept. 20, you may very well wish you had been. Locals and out-of-towners alike were entertained by some great music, art, exhibits and games.

Tom and Rosie Kern: Thanks to community

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire community of Steamboat Springs and Routt County for being so welcoming and helpful over the last three years.

Jim and Gayle Dudley: Community support

In March 2013 our son Matt Dudley was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. He immediately started writing on www.caringbridge.com and a caring community was formed.

Ken Collins: Pay them by the hour

America has an employment problem. Yes, we also have an unemployment problem. But this is different.

Johannah K. Hall: Community approach

Last spring, Mountain Montessori Charter School was established. Still in its toddler stages, it soon will grow into a full-blown working plan, and like our children, it will need your community and individual support to continue in its growth.

Tom Schatz: An environmental waste of breath

Environmental issues have been front and center in Colorado this year. No wonder: The state’s natural beauty is perhaps its greatest treasure.

Ed Miklus: Know facts before tax

In the article entitled “Winter air service plan program approved” in Wednesday’s Steamboat Today, readers should take note that Mr. Porter, LMD chairman, exclusively uses the term “seats” when referring to the rosy colored picture of the program.

Betty Leipold: Best option for station

I still think the most logical place for a new police station is the Iron Horse Inn.

Kathleen Marie Kelly: Rebuttal to editorial

I thought the opinion of the Steamboat Today that gave advice to Oak Creek was cavalier. Does any of your staff live in Oak Creek? When stating that “we urge, we think,” who actually is the we?

Dusty Atkinson: Merge in right place

I think it would be helpful to explain to the town why you should drive all the way up to the merge point in construction zones.
