Scott, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the Trousils to reply. If they do, it will be more hogwash perfume for their own image. Routt County Rider Robin Craigen always wanted to be the reasonable guy, working with the Trousils instead of confronting them. These people are immune to appeals to their sense of community. All they want is applause for their therapy program while they give the shaft to the greater public.
When every person who interacts with the Trousils asks "When are you going to give the public the trails you promised?" and says "I can't invite you to my cocktail party until you get this fixed" or "My check won't be coming this year unless you honor your public promises," then you might get their attention.
Scott, I have asked Brent why epithets such as "weak minded" or "you pee your panties" are not summarily removed but I haven't received a reply nor have these posts been removed.
The Today is selectively concerned, quickly defending favorite politicians but otherwise happy to see ad hominem attacks continue. Conflict sells papers and keeps blog discussions going and that's good business. I bet revenues for on-line ads have gone up since the Steamboat 700 debate.
Scott, It is absolute lunacy to equate the Iron Horse fiasco and the base area redevelopment Scott. I give you a lot of credit for your insightful comments, but here you seem to be way off base.
On another note, I wonder if you would ever consider meeting me for a friendly cup of coffe some day. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet you in person. firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scott- you are really on your game in the discussion of Tom Ross column on guncontrol. Sometimes you are spot on with your insights and wit and other times...well, a little less on your game I suppose.
Anywho- I got a good chuckle out of your remarks. thanks.
I sure wish that people that were commenting on the Hayden School situation would stop unless you have a student in the district. You have no idea the family dynamics and other life situations that relate to students and test taking abilities. Not everybody is a test taker that will score high. I work in a university setting and see that students that fail on the first or second attempt on a national licensure exam would be EXCELLENT at what they are testing for but just freeze up on the test. Does that stem from not having enough learning days or good enough instructors - NO.
Scott I just saw Cargo at the Bar, she said you are getting a letter together for utility rates they want to raise in OC, let me know so I can sign it.
Scott, thank you so much for reading between the lines and understanding what really happened to the "partner families". Please read the post if you want to get the truth from the other side.
HI Scott -
I am in the process of getting data that at a minimum will help put the “situation” into some perspective. I have asked the City Manager to provide me the number of calls over the past 10 years annually. I have asked for the coding of these calls because a hierarchy of seriousness has to exist.
Than using data reported by SSPD to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation about reported crimes (violent and property).
The end game will of this analysis will be to calculate a per (1,000?) population and an estimated for visitors for both violent and property crimes. This along with the sheer volume of number of calls that are occurring will highlight that the vast majority of calls – although public service in nature have little to do with public safety. If this ratio of total calls to actual reported (violent/property) crimes – we may be overstaffed – or the citizenry is calling on items that are civil in nature.
When I get the data I requested from Joel – I would like the opportunity to discuss with you how to do a honest evaluation of the data as well as strategies to how best start including this data as a part of the public discussion. Want to nerd out on some numbers?
