Anne Barounos 1 year, 4 months ago on Division emerges among candidates in Steamboat school board race

Agreed - the "Leadership Program of the Rockies" appears to be a very conservative political organization, that exists primarily to get more conservatives into local government positions ( I value and trust the leadership of teachers, and the school board candidates who they support.

Love the hot-desk/conference facility idea. Also useful would be a pay-per-use telepresence/high-def video conferencing suite -- perhaps a small Regus Business Center? That being said, reliable wi-fi is the most important thing of all. Citywide wi-fi would be great. If increased flights into HDN are not feasible, an alternative to the Alpine Taxi DIA shuttle would be nice.

BTW, Steamboat's own LNB study from about 7 years ago noted that many LNB workers are well paid, and tend to be active in their community. My friends at the SSWSC, Steamboat Relay for Life, Steamboat Rotary and Routt County Democrats would agree!


Anne Barounos 6 years, 6 months ago on Steamboat City Council picks Colorado Group Realty leader Bart Kounovsky for seat

In addition to his "day job" at Colorado Group Realty, Bart Kounovsky is an avid cyclist, runner and cross-country skier. Few people can bring to the table the same level of financial experience, coupled with a genuine appreciation for the natural beauty that makes Steamboat unique. I heartily applaud City Council's decision to appoint Bart to the vacant seat. Steamboat will be the richer for it.

An inspiring message, well aimed at teenage kids, without any political bias -- this should be broadcast live to all students in the District, in order to underline the message that education is the key to success in America.
