Thank you everyone who made the Hayden Stroll possible. We enjoyed all the HOMETOWN fun...from the Hayride thru town to the visit with Santa & the string of the Cheerios & home made bird feeders. Our Granddaughter had a wonderful time. I WISH I could be 4 years old again!!! Thanks for the memories!
What this town really needs is a true truck stop. There is no place between Silverthorne and Rifle for a trucker to stop and rest and shower and eat etc. As soon as I have a million dollars I intend to open one.
Throughout this entire Obamacare mess not once have I heard about doctors taking a pay cut. Same goes for the pharmacy companies. I sure the local pharmacist has had his or her salary lowered or their hours cut, but the profit margin for corporate has surely risen. Plumbers, carpenters, city workers of all kinds are making less but hospital rates continue to rise, and doctors and dentists still charge an arm and a leg. We've all seen the commercials where you can give a third world vaccination for just pennies, and i just got a letter in the mail saying I could give a Thanksgiving dinner to needy folks for just a $1.92. My question is why can't I get vaccinated and eat for less then 2 bucks? Where does the AMA stand on Obamacare? They have been awfully quiet, because they're laughing all the way to the bank.
Just as Harvey Lyon has stated that he will do everything he can to put an end to Diane Mitch Bush's political career, I would like to take this opportunity to state that I will do the same for Cari Hermasinski, even if I have to run against her despite the fact that I have no desire to be a county commissioner. And no Rob D I'm not threatening anyone.
Scott, those stats are very interesting. Before I make my real statement it would be interesting to know how many of those 83 actually graduate? I think its criminal the amount of money being spent on the "school system". And I'm not talking about teacher salaries. From high tech, state of the art buildings, ( does the elementary school really need 3 fireplaces?) and a high school campus that puts my college campus to shame, yet the laundry list of supplies required for purchase by the individual student at the start of the school year gets longer and longer. With the amount of money allocated to the "system" each kid should get a Parker Pen for each class. I also think there should be a sunset on school taxes. Lets say a couple gets married, and buys a house. School taxes start right away, yet even if this couple starts a family immediately that kid won't be in school for at least 5 yrs. The kid goes to school for 12 years and the couple live into their 70's. Presumably, these people have paid for 50 years for 12 years of school. What a racket for the "school system." How about the family that sends 7 kids through the "system", like my wife who has 6 siblings. At some point shouldn't we all get a break from the school tax madness? At least we get to stop paying into Social Security at a certain age why can't we stop paying into the "school system" eventually.
I've go an idea. Lets vote yes on "66" and pay more taxes. Lets vote to build a new police station so we can pay more taxes to pay for it. Lets vote to build more bike trails so we can pay more taxes. Lets sign up for Obozocare so we can pay more taxes (er premiums) . Lets start a new program that collects my paycheck and sends me what if anything is leftover.
I'll make it an even dozen but the cynic in me thinks it may still pass. Can do you smell the corruption?
Thanks John and the Pilot for recognizing this important local activity. A special thanks to all the hard work and dedication of the volunteers who make this program such a huge success. Everyone involved says that they get way more out of it more than they put in. Anyone interested in getting involved should definitely show up on Sat. afternoon or contact the Knights of Columbus. Donations graciously accepted and you will be rewarded with all the tootsie rolls you can devour.
Yeah Jerry except Rome lasted a lot longer then 237 years
Harvey, there is an old saying about strength and security in numbers. The State Troopers are on the west side, as are the Sheriff's. Should the "Indians" come over the pass the city PD would do well to be huddled with their brethren. No Rob I'm not threatening the cops here. I know how everyone loves to hear stories about the Big City (NY) so here comes another one. Most Precincts in NY have a nickname related to a fort attached to them. The most famous being the 41 in the Bronx glamorized by Paul Newman with Ed Asner as the Captain, in Fort Apache. Ed Asner's rant about the population in that neighborhood is not only so true of the times but one of the best in movie history.(Unfortunately I have forgotten the words verbatim), but that is not the one I'm talking about here. That would be the 66 Pct. in Brooklyn, known as Fort Surrender when Hasidic Jews stormed the station house and took over when one of there own was arrested. Put the station house on the west side and prepare for the worst case scenario, even if it never comes to pass.
