The shooting of a bear in Downtown Steamboat makes headlines for weeks. The rape of a woman is buried. Seriously unbelievable.

Glad to see my tax dollars are being spent to subsidize some ranch owner's ability to get millions of dollars in tax breaks on land that had no probable development potential in the first place. Good move. Wise use of tax dollars in tough economic times.

Wow. I did not see that in Kathy's comments at all. What I saw was a true neighbor of the property saying she supports it. She is not screaming "not in my back yard". It sounded to me like her involvement in a community process such as vision 2030 provided her with some education on the matter which gave her another perspective and a deeper understanding of needs and goals for the community. Studionsl, you must be a part of this Community Alliance group. You ask a question or make a demand, then someone answers you, and if it's not the answer you thought you'd get, you lash out.

ElevenFootPole 4 years, 5 months ago on Martha Drake Young: Biased reporting

Writing a story on what a person CLAIMS he did vs. what he ACTUALLY did is not biased reporting. It's called uncovering & revealing the truth. Mr. Bennett would not be cast in this light had he not put himself in it. If commoncents is right, I say to the Pilot, bring it on. Tell us everything you know.

Shut this down in referendum. This resort town really only needs 5 star hotels, resort style condos and trophy homes masquerading as old west ranches. We obviously want only the image of a town, not a real town. So shut it down, and quit freaking pretending you want community character & affordable housing. What we want is money to come to this town and fix it all up like a movie set so we all feel like we've made it big - part of the elite. Shuttle our people-props in from shanty town before the sun comes up then shuttle 'em back out when we turn the lights off. We want to be Somebody and the only way to be Somebody is to get rid of the Nobodies. Good job Cari. Vote in favor of piling a ton of costs on new non-elitist middle-class development so you can then deny it on the grounds that it's now too expensive to target the middle-class market. What a strategy.

What happens if this team goes belly up after building a bunch of homes they can't sell? The bank sells them short, and BINGO..... attainable housing.
