Steamboat Midgets won State!!! The paper needs to do a story on these guys, I do not believe this High School Level hockey team has won this before, it is a great accomplishment for these young men as well as the SSYHA.

I hope the Steamboat Springs Youth Hockey Midget Team that has finished first in its division and are going into the Division Playoffs this weekend as 1st Seed are invited to play.

What a great way for these high school boys to celebrate finishing the regular season in first place!

"If convicted, Penfold faces a minimum of 10 days in jail and a maximum of one year in jail."

So a human life is only worth 10 days in Routt County?


Kat Kelly 1 year, 7 months ago on Joe Mattingly: Still kid friendly?

Joe, I am a native Houstonian that moved to Steamboat Springs Memorial Day 2007 to have a safer and healthier place to raise my teenagers than Houston. It has been the best decision I have ever made for my kids. There is nowhere in the world you can go where there will not be some form of alcohol or drug use, and whether or not it is legal will not deter those that use and/or abuse will be in public. I am also an employee of the City of Steamboat Springs and have been very impressed at how our local government has taken the legalization of MJ to a very professional level. Just simply think of this era like the Prohibition Era of the 1920's & 1930's. I grew up in Houston and lived there as an adult until I moved to Steamboat in 2007, and believe me Houston has a much more dangerous, drug and crime infested atmosphere than Steamboat, every time we go visit we have to have a family talk on safety regarding gangs, and just the criminal aspect of driving and walking in the City, I sincerely hope you will come to Steamboat and see why we all love living here, even if we have to have multiple jobs to do so.


Kat Kelly 1 year, 10 months ago on Rob Douglas: PTO: How much is too much?

As a city employee I would just like to say how much I love my job, the fellow city employees I have the pleasure to serve with and the citizens I have the honor to service everyday on and off the clock. As a city employee, you are never really off the job because you are a constant representation of the city and City Government. I have been the 1st face of City Planning for six years come November 19th and as a single mom, it is tough making ends meet, even with holding down three to four jobs, but at least with the time off I earn at the city I am able to take the time necessary to be at my kids sports and theatrical games and shows about 75% of the time. Professionals in Government positions usually accept a lessor salary then they could get in the private sector out of a desire to serve as well as the fact that Government Benefits more than likely are better than those in the private sector. I believe this is SOP for Government's so they can attract and keep some of the best Professionals in their fields to serve the citizens of the community. Let us not forget all city employees are also Citizen's of this Community!
