Kudos to Harry Thompson for his insightful letter in last Sunday’s Pilot. What a wonderful suggestion (merging the Steamboat Springs Police Department with the Routt County Sheriff’s Office) — wish I had thought of it myself.
As Steamboat prepares to spend our hard-earned taxes on a new police station, should we not consider merging the Steamboat Springs Police Department with the Routt County Sheriff’s Office?
What is Common Core? It is about the future education of our children and their personal lives as well as yours. Common Core is the new federal framework for education in American schools.
We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported us and those who continue to support us through this tragedy.
In 1967, Don Sanders was working for the Colorado Department of Education. While talking to superintendents in Northwest Colorado, the lack of special education was evident.
Colorado Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron, of Pueblo, both Democrats, were thrown out of office for their support of the new unconstitutional Colorado gun control laws.
Steamboat Springs’ City Manager Deb Hinsvark and Police Chief Joel Rae have held two community meetings the past two weeks to explain to the community why they think that 3 acres of Rita Valentine Park is the ideal location for the new $8.9 million Steamboat Springs Police Department headquarters.
On Sept. 5, I went to the police department community meeting, along with several other Steamboat residents. We were from all over the town. Not one person in the crowd agreed with the police department about building a new police station on Rita Valentine Park.
There is reason to step back into the sadness and hurt of 12 years ago, to bring back the gut feeling so many of us shared that September morning. As bad as what was taking place in New York City became, we looked up at an American flag and saw something good. That good is the reason we must remember.
President Barack Obama’s lack of effective leadership is more apparent now than ever before Paul Krugman, The New York Times columnist and Keynesian economist, came out last week and said the economic policy of the past five years has been “an astonishing, horrifying failure.”
Rob Douglas’s article “Stay out of Syria” was well written and clear to the point, but it fails to consider several important factors. If the United States chooses to do nothing, will the world be a better place and will America be safer? It will either go up or it will go down. It will not stay the same.
One sign of the dysfunction in Washington, D.C., these days is that the conversations there have completely detached from the ones happening in kitchens and living rooms across Colorado and the country.
Your coverage educating and informing people of the dangers of exotic invasive species is welcome in the battle to control and eradicate these non-native threats. Not all non-native plants become invasive, but the rapid proliferation of invasive non-native plants in our wildlands can have a devastating effect.
The Kiwanis Club of Steamboat Springs reminds everyone the 2013 Yampa Valley Science School term is approaching, and the club needs support to build a scholarship fund for Routt County youth participants.
The Oak Creek Town Board should concern itself with basic issues of town government. It should stop taking money from the utilities.
