Is it possible to disagree with Mr. Rowse without attacking and belittling him? Don't expect any respect if you won't give any.

Dave, The City Council didn't cave;they realized that the ordinance as proposed was unfair and probably would not work.

Well put,George. I'm glad at least someone understands the importance of having free concerts. Scott,you make valid points,but you have missed the most important one in this case.

Not lies,Scott,just wrong. What's wrong with funding something for the fun of locals? What makes you think that it doesn't increase downtown spending? Why would you care anyway? This ain't your town. Go ahead and dismiss all the other points I've made about this issue and continue to rant about things that you really don't understand.

If you can ever get Tom Petty for a $10 or $20 admission,you would need a much bigger venue than the base of Howelson Hill. If you think that charging for these now-free shows is a good idea,go ahead and contact the concert series organizers and urge them to do so. There are plenty of quality shows that come to town here where there is an admission fee;why not have some for free? Regardless of what the concert organizers may say,these show are primarily for the locals. I think charging for admission to these shows will diminish their appeal and eventually kill the series. Who gets shot in the foot then?

Dan, Certainly some people would consider these shows to be a bargain at $5.00,but I believe that many others wouldn't and would not attend. Take a good look at the crowd at the next free show you attend and consider how many might just be there because it's free. I really think that charging a fee for these shows would be a mistake. There are a number of other communities in Colorado that also have free shows;maybe we should look into how they cover the costs and still keep them free to attend. As I've mentioned before,I believe that vender sales,particularly beer and wine,make the shows possible,and lower attendance due to a charge for entry might be enough to kill the shows entirely.
