I'm curious as to how many years and how many noise complaints are logged at Ore House Plaza. It has to be getting pretty expensive to respond to these. It has been going on for as long as I can remember and is seldom found to be valid.
Having heard both sides of the story now I am satisfied with the outcome. Dog owners need to remember that dogs have hunt/kill instinct in their blood. I have seen the damage to cattle and it isn't pretty. Thank you to all who did good professional work to bring this to a resolution quickly and legally. Shame on the party who didn't tell the truth here and YOU know who you are!
It would seem to me that the public has a right to know what properties the landowner is shooting peoples pets on. I personally would like to make sure he never sees my pet.
I do understand the newspapers stand of allowing trial by jury rather than by press. It's a tough line for the paper to walk relating to what it prints and a persons right to a fair trial. So many in this area are quick to jump the press but I commend them on a difficult job well done. Laws must be abided by all parties.
"Several calls to the reported landowner were not answered Tuesday". Gosh I didn't see his name anywhere in print. Does the public have a right to this information or just the press?
I await the full facts reguarding this incident. As many have stated above, this is disturbing whether you love or hate dogs. If in fact the dog was shot on "County" land then the shooter had no tresspass rights and broke the law. My dog IS my family and I'm not sure how I would react to this act of sensless cruelty. Perhaps the truth will come out before this is all over and done. Hopefully the paper will print the rest of the story before it gets buried in the past news file.
My heartfelt sorrow goes out to the people who lost their beloved pet. My heartfelt sorrow also goes out for some of the idiotic responses I see above.
In closing ponder this, "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." - Albert Einstein ...
Congratulations Johnny and Todd! I'm more confident than ever that you will do even better in the future. I am basking with Steamboat pride!
Congratulations to all the Spillanes. I know how long and hard Johnny worked for this. You now have the pride of being related to an Olympic champion and one very fine well adjusted young man. I knew Johnny when he lived in Beths guest cottage and his dedication was apparent even back then. I have a feeling this young man isn't finished yet.
My congratulations to Todd Lodwick for his 4th place. He is another commendable athlete who has worked relentlessly toward his goal.
And above all congratulations to Steamboat Springs for being the home of these very talented men. It is you as a community who helped these champions attain their goals.
After living in this park for 9 years it brings a tear to my eye to see it being ruined by this road. I considered West Acres to be the most beautiful park in the country. I am greatful for the 15 years I lived in Steamboat and am saddened to see "progress" ruin the charm it had to accomidate the almighty dollar.
Finally somebody to represent the common residents. Goooo Kyle!
Your objection was noted shooker5 but full of holes. I stand by what I said. I drove in Routt and Moffit Counties for over 15 years and witnessed dump trucks speeding and tailgating vehicles (mine included) several hundred times. The cold hard facts are that most of these trucks are paid on a per load delivered basis. Thus their reason for being in a hurry.
The cold hard fact is that this man made a fatal error in judgement or Lorna would still be alive. We don't know how the truck driver feels because they (he and his boss) are declining to comment. Speeding is not just in reference to the posted speed limit it is also dictated by existing conditions as in a vehicle making a lefthand turn in front of it. The charges are yet to be determined.
I am not against dumptrucks being on the highway. I am agains their disreguard for the law. I have also noted the best dumptruck drivers seem to be women. Dumptrucks provide a needed service in the Yampa Valley and their presence will only increase as time goes on. I am not singling out this particular driver. The CSP will determine his charges.
As to your reference to "my favorite beverage truck", I'm at a total loss as to what that's suppose to mean. I will not post in reference to this again as I don't want to be a part of the rediculous tirades I see in here all too often.
The cold hard fact is Lorna is gone and there is nothing she did wrong to merit that except go to get the mail as she has done for many years. Sad!
