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.
Mark, you can't teach ignorance, that's why the rebublican party keeps removing funding from education, to hold onto their base. The least educated states vote republican the strongest.
I am a born in the USA American (NC), raised by God fearing Republicans, in Oklahoma of all places, hardly a liberal stronghold.
Matt Charity is the brit.
Every one of your " I wouldn't vote for a .." in your previous post i would consider prejudiced and bigoted.
Tell me What could "anybody" have done differently than Obama? Seems like the country is running quite well, Unemployment down, recession over, stock market up, the only terrorist attacks on our soil come from gun nuts, Get- mo closing. I just hope that in his last year he opens the door to campaign finance reform to remove the corporate influence from our government.
As for a pamphlet to explain these "monsters", no thanks, I'll just continue to vote based on what I know to be the wrong direction, the bigoted, and prejudiced republican's. It's really too bad the financial conservatives come with so much crazy social baggage.
What's your definition of "ditch"? Financially? Morally? Militarily? Educationally?
Financially people keep buying bonds to finance our government so we are far from the ditch that Greece is in. Most are sold to Americans, not China as some would frighten us by saying.
Morally is up to your own personal opinions as to how people should live, and noone is the same, so acceptance of others is what my parents taught me that Jesus wanted, and what i believe. government has no place judging, that for God in the end run.
Militarily our government is owned by the military industrial complex and that is reflected in the budget, and the level of debt it carries. Most of our military budget is a jobs program funded to keep people working in districts where the military has operations, overpowered and unnecessary.
Educationally we lack funding for our education system due to demand from well funded outside education interests, and from a side of the aisle that wants to control content in our education system by using funding to prevent ideas and education from lifting their supports to an education level where they would question their leaders. Keep the sheeple dumb and it's easier to keep them in control.
While we may weaving in the lane, we are far from being in the ditch.
The mountain is available for skiing even during opening hours, just the lifts have charges. Get an up mountain waiver and pass from the information center, and hike up. I've never had any problem with access to Mt. Werner, lifts open or closed.
"nobody" is not running.
You answer my question, and I'll answer yours.
