You really are incredible,Mark. Now you are accusing ME of advocating for the chemical application! Did you understand anything that I said in my posts? By the way,there are many mountain bikers who spend lots of time trimming weeds and anything else that needs to be removed to make biking trails more safe and ridable. (There are hikers and horseback riders up on Emerald too.) Personally,I don't care whether the weeds are there or not,but I am not enthusiastic about using chemicals to remove them. No one asked to City Parks people to do a weed spraying application,as far as I know. They decided it was needed,whether users agreed or not. You really do take everything too personally. This is the kind of discussion that could have been done around the bar,with everyone laughing.
Well Mark,if you grew up on a farm you shouldn't have made the ridiculous comment about hiking and riding through "goat crap" on Emerald Mountain,since you know what Goat crap looks like. I don't know what you mean when you say I "jacked you up",but I did take exception to your mocking and sneering comment to Linda's suggestion. You talk about for a need for thick skin on this blog,but you sure seem to lack any sense of humor.
Nonsense, Scott. A nativity is clearly a religious theme,and government cannot be shown to favor one religion over another. That is not a comparable thing to placing small flags on the lawn of the courthouse as a memorial. There have been any number of memorial gatherings on the courthouse lawn in the past,and this would just be another one.
The spraying operation did not cover huge amounts of acres. It covered the immediate areas around a number of trails.Goats could certainly help in such a situation. They wouldn't need to spray as much or as extensively if they thought over the problem a bit and looked for an alternative. No one really expects goats to solve such an admittedly large problem,but they could help keep the toxicity down.
As for you,Mark,you don't even know what goat turds look like,if you think anyone will be wading in it. More like shootin' yourself in the foot.
I don't buy into the notion that allowing a group of kids to put up all these small flags as a tribute and a memorial to those that died on 9/11 somehow requires the County Commissioners to allow any and all other groups to do something similar.They should allow this display. If subsequently,they are approached by a group that wishes to put up Nazi flags and they turn them down,I doubt their decision would be challenged in court.I think I have to disagree with you on this,Scott. I don't believe that the law is that rigid.
You've obviously never seen a goat eat,Harry. It is an impressive sight.Not surprising that Mark would find something to mock here.
Very cool! Sorry that I missed it.
I believe that the driver of the cement truck was found to have been drinking,and turned left in front of the bike rider (whom I knew),giving the rider little chance to stop. The rider may not have been entirely sober either;a tragedy for everyone,and a great loss to the Steamboat biking community of the time.
I can't find anything to disagree with in this letter. Very well reasoned,David.
