Elizabeth Danielson 5 days, 3 hours ago on Debate on Amendment 69 healthcare proposal continues

According to the Denver Post, if amendment 69 passes, the people of Colorado will ONLY have insurance in the state of Colorado because the amendment only covers Colorado healthcare providers. If you travel to another state and need medical care due to sickness or an accident, you will not have insurance to cover that. That reason alone should be enough to defeat this. A national single payer system is a great goal, but this single state "version" is not the right solution. From a cost standpoint, it is not fair to doubly tax the senior population who may already be on a fixed income by having to pay for both Medicare and the state tax.

Could someone please clarify the numbers? If the total cost of the facility is $11.8 million and the city is to pay 60% - that would equal $7.08 million, not $10.3 million. Where is the $10.3 million number coming from?

Walt, you obviously don't live near Steamboat Blvd. A roundabout at that intersection with Mt. Werner would be a wonderful solution! Hope these traffic improvements are given a high priority.

Elizabeth Danielson 6 years ago on County shuts down Steamboat's Sweet Pea Market and Cafe

When the law stipulated a financial penalty (fine) for non-compliance, it made more financial sense for this small business to pay the fine rather than close during the time they could make the most revenue. They paid the fines, they've corrected the issue - this seems to be a case of double penalties being invoked for the same offense; I hope some lawyer will take a look at the legality of the county even doing this. It's not only Sweet Pea that suffers, but this also impacts every county resident that shops at the store and is now denied access to the products they want, and of course trickles back as a negative impact to every vendor (again many small businesses) that supplies the store who will see a decline in their revenue as well. A poor decision in this economic climate....

Do I remember correctly that he used a stun gun in the attack? I don't think people usually carry a stun gun when trying to convince someone to serve as a maid of honor......
