My number is in the book, call anytime.
Yawn, blaw blaw blaw.
I still think" rounding up" you bill to give poor help with their bills is in line with the giving nature of Christianity, and those that call themselves Christian shouldn't have problems with this program. But I guess if you do not want any religious teachings to guide a quasi-socialist service organization that is your choice. By all means let's just let greed guide their organization, like much of corporate America.
Church told you 10%, Jesus taught that a rich man has as much a chance getting into heaven as camel does fitting through the the eye of a needle.
Oh, and YVEA is also a basic socialist organization, comrade, so maybe you should opt out of their service altogether
I think you are the one confused about Christian values. I did not argue this wasn't a monopoly. Government can't support any religion, but a co-op that's run by its owner/ members can choose their own path. If a consumer is not reading their own bill, and is overcharged, $.99-.01, who's fault is that? What happened to your position about personal responsibility?
It disheartens me how the well to do rally against programs to help those that can't afford basic needs. You seem to carry this flag the proudest. My Christian upbringing told me to support the poor and needy, not bitch about a program that costs very little, and helps the less fortunate. Opt out, and explain to St. Peter why you can't afford $6 to help those in need. Maybe you need to give it to your church to build an edification of your beliefs instead applying the teachings and actually help someone.
Maybe YVEA feels their "collective" should reflect the teaching of Christ and help those that need help. They are not government and are free to apply Christian values to the organization.
This paper ignores many real aspects of life in Steamboat. Rob Douglas's comment on the new SSPD chief story is spot on.
Omg, does this mean you agree with my position?
This makes me question my position... (Joke)
I don't want to stop the development, it's needed, and will be sold and used. But I would point out that this intersection needs further thought. 180 condos, one two and three, bedrooms will put more people into westbound Pine Grove than ever went to Staples, Walgreens, and Alpine lumber. The traffic from the current commercial developments won't diminish, and may increase if the Staples site gets a business. My crude math puts that toward 300 bedrooms? Lots of extra cars, and no plan to require the developer to pay for the traffic problem that's about to be created?
I don't want to hinder this new development, but (imo) CDot failed with their redesign of this intersection, and I think it's about to get much worse without a plan for improvement. Since we know what's coming, doesn't it make sense to plan ahead?
mark, you develop this type of housing, does anyone require the developer to project, and fix potential traffic problems your housing developments create? If not, Why should public funds be required to fix a problem that a developer creates? Do the additional funds created by the property taxes cover the expense of the roadway improvements?
When I say "least educated" I refer to the level of education achieved, not the quality. higher degrees promote broader ideas, and fight the very indoctrination your speak of.
So I wonder how the redesigned intersection at Pine Grove and US40 will handle 180 condos worth of traffic? Currently crossing US40 on Pine grove (westbound) involves a lane shift into oncoming turning traffic and is poorly laid out, and although I'm not an engineer, I think is poorly designed. But Planning Oked, and I don't see a mention of additional redesigning of this interchange.
