A Civics class should be a requirement to graduate from high school. If you don't like the the two presidential candidates, don't sit out the election. You don't have to vote on every position. There are issues that you should vote on locally and statewide that are very important.

I was run into by my dog once, and my knee was hyperextended. It hurt real bad! He kept playing and I limped back to my truck. The End.


Richard Hagins 8 months, 3 weeks ago on City Council endorses changes to city snow removal operations

To the council buy the new graders, you get a warranty, government pricing and can be purchased locally to support valley business with the dealer close by. Buying used, in the long run, you do not get a break in price and save money. Buying used graders WILL keep your mechanics busy.

It is very simple, if you chose to reside in a live/work residence, deal with living in an industrial area. You want serenity move to your quiet place.

The severely drunk guy probably had a key to the equipment. They are not that hard to purchase, if you know how. The same key for a 240 Ton Haul Truck also will work on small Skid Steer Loaders. I have one on my key chain.


Richard Hagins 1 year, 5 months ago on Routt County considers allowing OHVs on short stretches of county road near Black Mountain

It has been two years, since the Town of Hayden allowed recreational vehicles on their streets and it is time for the county to open certain county roads for their usage.

In West Routt, I will propose all of the county roads be open except RCR 27 & RCR 53 south from where it meets at the haul road. Follow Hayden's registration procedure for equipment needed and also a valid Hayden registration of the vehicle be honored on county roads. County residents would register with the county and be honored by the Town of Hayden.

The citizens in other parts of the county, could recommend what roads could be ATV friendly in their area.
