Adios, Blue Sage West (We'll still order from the Wildhorse location).
Welcome back Sharon! Once again my favorite new/old breakfast place.

Jeff Kibler 6 days, 4 hours ago on Green teams: Turn out the lights!

This could have been a learning moment. Instead, these kids are taught platitudes and the espousal thereof. How about teaching them some math and physics?
This conglomeration of nothingness could have simply estimated how much energy we would save, in this town, by shutting our lights off for an hour.
I'm sure these bright kids are capable of performing simple math and physics equations, if only given the proper instruction.

Yep, if you want to it be sustainable the users need to pay more fees for their usage.
Scott makes a good point about the subsidy:revenue ratio.
"... saying the city is not adequately maintaining and growing its parks ..."
Grow parks when we can afford to maintain what we already have.

Or just take the LMD airline subsidies (AKA corporate welfare) and redirect them to something that benefits locals.

Jeff Kibler 2 weeks, 3 days ago on Doctors believe health dangers of marijuana are being overlooked

Once upon a time cocaine was thought to not be addictive. MJ, who knows? Certainly nowhere nearly as habit-forming as uptown or downtown. I knew some who had issues when they couldn't procure MJ. They needed something burning in the background, like incense. Perhaps a psychological addiction? Why is it called chronic?
Today's MJ can is way more potent than those comfortable blanket days. Education is key, especially for edibles.
Investigative reporters are finding false advertising (or poor testing) regarding edibles' THC content:

Regardless, I'm glad it's legal and it enables Rhys to hack out some righteous code. http://www.wwoz.org/listen/player/

It's a bit more simple. We have too many people residing in semi-arid and arid regions.
A lot of debate has centered around the collapse of various advanced civilizations of yore.
Analyzing ancient pollen grains from Cyprus, researchers concluded that a massive drought hit the region about 3,200 years ago.

Guess what? We do not know. We're just speculating.

The Mayans? They didn't have SUVs, yet climate appeared to be their downfall >br>

Yep, that Aurora theater killer, an Occupy Wall Street aficionado, managed to buy guns and ammo. He should have institutionalized long before that, per his pathetic shrink.
ISIS has acquired tanks, chemical weapons, and purportedly some twenty fighter jets.
Do they have the wherewithal to deploy these jets? We don't know.
Still, that's a far cry cry from machine guns on Toyotas.

It's more like an obsession for this paper.
I hope they manage to soon get over it. Perhaps instead they can sensationalize germane topics that affect our bottom lines. YVHA, City Council, Deb H ├╝ber alas, decimating Oak Street for Yampar Street.

Jeff Kibler 1 month ago on Our View: City, Yampa Valley Housing Authority partnership a win

They are not strangers here, but are of course decent, very well-known and respected members of this community. This is a given.
The only given is their incredible incompetence.
