"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.
Congratulations to Mr. Wenger who made the national news (NPR) this morning.
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.
My money is on (as Scott points out) a Red Herring ...
Hate to say it but the city should probably pay this tax bill because they are responsible for killing all of the business in what was Ski Time Square.
"Sept. 2: Steamboat Stage Race criterium — downtown Steamboat Springs, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. All-day criterium along Oak, Pine, Fourth and Eighth streets in downtown Steamboat. Pro category begins at 3:45 p.m."
(sigh) ... more road closures downtown ... live downtown ... suffering from downtown road closure fatigue ...
"while the bikes and boards sail the sidewalks unhindered" ... while bikes and cars sail through stop signs unhindered. And no ... I really don't see this as a bike vs. cars issue ... my guess is the same folks ... regardless of the number of wheels ... blaze right through the signs on Oak at 3rd, 5th, 7th, etc.. Seems to me a city with a tight budget could make a fortune there.
My PO Box is downtown but I used to always to Sundance Plaza for window services because Don was there. I miss that location and really miss the outstanding way Don did his job ... every day!
"I'd never run for like City Council just to sit there and be the annoying one. I'd only consider running as part of a coalition running to make big changes."
That's a cheap cop out. Stand up and be the loyal opposition in a position that matters if you have something to say ... as you often do.
Dagonit ... I find myelf agreeing with Mr. Douglas again ... who'd have thought. Next thing ya know Rebublicans and Democrates will agree on tax reform; dogs and cats will live together in harmony and our city officials will stop gambling with my money.
