So glad you wrote this. I always wondered about our summer Olympians and if the grounding in Winter sports and training and all that had something to do with it. Clearly for you it did. Welcome back to Steamboat.

Carrie Requist 7 months ago on Kathy Cain: Selah offers support

Could you please help me understand if you really support all choices available to a girl/women with an unwanted/unplanned pregnancy or if you are an evangelical organization that is anti-abortion?

You letters to the editor over the years position Selah as a neutral organization that provides support and counseling for pregnant girls/women to explore her options and that you have no stake in what choice she makes, but there are descriptions on pages like ColoradoGives.org https://www.coloradogives.org/SteamboatSpringsPregnancyResourceCenter/overview where your mission statement is anything but neutral - "Selah provides tangible hope in a compassionate environment through the love of Jesus, making abortion unnecessary." That is hardly the mission statement of an organization that will support a woman's choice for abortion. You also have stories on your website of post abortion regret (and your post abortion support services) yet I see no stories or post adoption regret or post keep the baby and raise it by myself regret nor any stories of post abortion, yes I did the right thing for me. All of these point to Selah having a very strong anti-abortion stance.

It is a shame that you feel you must trick pregnant girls/women into using your services instead of being open that you have an anti-abortion (or pro life or pro birth) leaning so girls/women have all the information they need to decide if your services are right for them.

It would be helpful to understand how the process could go at this point, especially with the jurisdiction remaining in Routt but Lesyshen being physically located in Denver and presumably needing to stay there for medical reasons.

Assuming that there is a trail, where would it be held and where would the jurors be from?

You missed that Austin Hinder (Junior, QB, University of California) got some playing time in the Cal vs University of Washington game on Oct 26th. Completed a pass for a first down among other plays.

Carrie Requist 9 months, 4 weeks ago on Carol Ward: Keep districts

My personal observation from the 13 years I have been here with kids in the school district is that we would be much better off without districts. We are often in a situation where there is only one contested race and the other districts have only one candidate (or sometimes none until the last minute when someone is heavily recruited). It is completely silly that an elected school board member has to resign because they move within Steamboat, but that move causes them to change districts. Most people have no idea what district they are in. I applaud anyone who wants to be on the school board and think that the board will be stronger if, for example, the electorate gets to choose the 3 best out of all 5 people running instead of choosing between 3 people for one seat while the other two run uncontested. It is important for our community to ensure that we have a strong school board and that members can serve their entire terms.

Unless a criminal is never going to be released, it behooves society to help that person figure out how to be able to be law abiding once they are released. Earning a GED is not a freebie. These guys had to decide to do the work and for that I commend them and I think it is great that there are resources to help them.

Carrie Requist 11 months ago on Longtime coach Gary Crawford leaving Steamboat Springs

This is a huge loss for the Steamboat community and especially for the Nordic Combined families. We'll miss you so much Gary and Kim even though we understand why you have to go. Gary, you are just adding one more example to the role model you have been for so many kids/adults, not only to push hard to excel, to be a good teammate, but also to take care of those you love in the way they need to be taken care of.

Carrie Requist 1 year, 1 month ago on Fire causes heavy damage in North Routt County

I certainly feel for this family for the loss of their garage, but come on Steamboat Today, the headline here is horrible. In the midst of a tremendous fire season, when fire danger is high, the headline, "Fire causes heavy damage in North Routt County" evokes images a of multi-thousand acre fire with many homes lost and perhaps even lives lost. One garage is not 'heavy damage in North Routt County." Please think about the affect your headlines will have and write them to be reflective of the actual situation.
