Clay Ogden 1 month, 1 week ago on Man receives 18-year prison sentence for meth in Steamboat Springs

Mark ... my guess is was not the best choice of words but a typical secondary definition is "to bring into play" and "to bring into use" ... I can't imagine anyone believing or suggesting this would be the 1st introduction of meth into Steamboat.


Clay Ogden 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Omar M. Campbell: Immigration mess

Jerry ... "Immigration became a bad thing when the United States became overpopulated " ... what measure did you use to determine that the United States is over populated? I don't see any reasonable measure of population density that supports the statement the United States is over populated ... particularly when compare to Singapore, Hong Kong, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Taiwan, Mauritius, South Korea, Rwanda, Netherlands, Lebanon, India , Haiti, Belgium, Japan, Philippines and really all of Europe. Is the United States really over populated or just over populated with folks that, in some folks ethnocentric perspective, just ought not be here?

As to Omar ... good grief, crawl back in your hole or move to Arizona. You need to bone up on elasticity of demand and gain some understanding that the demand in the US is based on what's cheap ... including labor. Immigration, like drugs, is less a question of supply but demand.


Clay Ogden 3 months ago on Barn fire in Bailey puts Comcast Internet out in Steamboat

Well ... the franchise agreement (which I think only applies to video, not telephone and Internet) should make Comcast's video delivery a city government issue because that agreement grants a local monopoly for cable video service.


Clay Ogden 3 months, 1 week ago on City of Steamboat Springs to enforce no smoking rule in bus shelters

Ouch ... 9 years after the ordinance is passed ... I have the impression it was never really enforced anywhere in Steamboat by local law enforcement ...only by local businesses.


Clay Ogden 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Former Steamboat chairman of the board Martin Hart dead at 77

I have to admit I find this to be the golden age of the ski area ... I'm sure because I moved here in 1982. Mr. Hart and Mr. Geier ... while not easy to work for ... set a high bar for excellence and vision ... mostly squandered during the ASC (Les 'Madoff') years.


Clay Ogden 3 months, 3 weeks ago on Wyoming State Patrol warns marijuana possession still illegal north of the border

You know, Jerry, most PDs would prefer to have less of a case load ... not more. I agree with Bill ... I think Wyoming law enforcement would have something better to do.


Clay Ogden 5 months, 3 weeks ago on New Steamboat City Council members poised to have big impact on employee pay, police station funding

"The market is not Eagle County," he said. "It is the greater metro area of Steamboat Springs and Routt County." - Scott Ford ... finally some common sense in this otherwise absurd process.


Clay Ogden 6 months, 3 weeks ago on Connie Sigler: We are a republic

Connie ... The United States is best described as a Democratic Republic. One is a form of governmental rule (Democracy) while the other is a type of governmental structure (Republic).

The former Soviet Union, a republic but not a democracy. India, is a democracy but not a republic.

I think Mr. Friedman's statement is valid because Democracy and Republic are not mutually exclusive.
