I feel represented by like minded citizens, and hope the City Council takes the recommendations from this group.
The lodging tax is not the general sales tax, it's levied onto hotel rooms and shouldered by our guests. That's why this committee is looking at improving trails to lure more guests, rent more rooms and thus, earn more revenue for this tax, and the general city sales tax.
How?? What about posting items from the communist manifesto on a FORUM about the city's barn village lot.
This should be a FORUM regarding the stories published by the Pilot, not a conversation between loney locals that do not know the difference between an online Forum and a Chatroom.
I don't condemn people I'm having a discussion with when they go off topic, but if I'm say, in charge of an HOA meeting and we are discussing a topic, and the discussion trends away from the business of the HOA, I will direct the discussion back to the topic. The Pilot should be doing this and it's an embarrassment to their "journalism" to allow these chat rooms to run wild.
Try to leave this forum alone for 30 days, you can lurk, laugh, and whatever, but don't post.
I dare ScottW, MarkH, JerryC, FredD, and all the others that post 3-4 times a day to leave and see what could be of this forum without the 5-6 of you posting onto every story. The forum will survive without your voices.
I didn't post for all of January, and will now drop back out, I urge others to find another outlet for your rhetoric and allow new voices to speak on this forum without your aggressive posting.
Sadly another thread of comments on this forum has disintegrated into a grand debate about nothing whatsoever to do with the story.
I'm in the opinion that the posters to this forum are doing a disservice to the community by dominating the forum with these pointless debates.
I urge the Pilot and Today to manage their forum to eliminate posts to stories that are off topic, and free up this forum of these long winded discussions that I feel restrict others from commenting, and sharing their opinions on the local issues within the story
. I feel once these forums fall back into these debates, normal citizens who may want to post an opinion on the story do not due to the ongoing discussion from the dominate posters.
Please Pilot, take control of your forum so it can be use by everyone to express opinions on the local stories, and delete posts that go off topic, and are arguments leading to nowhere.
Please posters, can we stay on topic, quit debating so far off the topics in the stories, and walk away once a opinion is established so that others posters can feel open to express their opinions without getting blasted by the over posting dominate voices.
Maybe Roberts wasn't the problem. Since he is gone and things remain the same, that would indicate He wasn't running the show either.
Let's not forget that while the city is spending $300k to "study" the Police station, they already spent $550,000 to beautify the US40 medians south of Ski Haus. Meanwhile we walk in the streets on Oak, and Yampa.
I agree with Russ, we want a new police station to enhance public safety, but need sidewalks to assure a safer walking public.
As for the needs of a young policeman, ask them what they would rather have, a nice office and meeting rooms, or a better paycheck? I believe putting better pay into an officers pocket will bring better recruits, and hold them longer in our community than a fancy office building.
Finally, Editor, and posters, the letter is written by Russ Fassilio NOT Ross.
Kevin, Not to nit pick, but you realizes the God of the Christian faith, and Allah, and the God of the Jewish faith are the SAME GOD. It is how God is worshiped that differs, not WHO. Please learn about your religion before spouting off how we worship a "Christian" God. Come on people, learn about you own beliefs, and where the come from. People have been fighting for 4000 years over How to worship, not Who to worship.
So "In god we trust" is "In Allah we trust" same guy, or whatever God is to you.
I agree with Kat that loss of life due to "careless" driving should carry a larger penalty, including the loss of driving privileges. Remove unsafe drivers from the roads for the good of all users.
Steamboat Today, please remove spoilers about the results from the headlines. Great to learn about Steamboat athletes, but I would rather avoid the results until I have a chance to watch the competition.
