Brian, Perhaps we didn't make it clear enough in the story, but the council opposition stemmed from a previous council in 2009 at the time of the initial discussion of closing the Sundance location. We're not yet aware of any specific opposition to this move from current council members.

Thanks, Brent

Scott, My understanding is the 85 percent figure refers to all extracurricular activities, including athletics and other programs.

Dave, Thanks for the feedback. You're right — the common definition of electrocuted is "death by electric shock." As such, we have revised the headline as well as the text of the news brief. We will publish a correction in Friday's print newspaper as well. Brent

Brent Boyer 1 year, 11 months ago on What do you think about the new Sunday Steamboat Pilot & Today?

Bill, Thanks for the feedback. Just to clarify a couple of points: 1) the price has not risen whatsoever with the change to the tabloid format; 2) we plan to use the Sunday newspaper as an opportunity for investigative, enterprise and other in-depth story coverage. This week was a chance to highlight some interesting stories from the ski area's first 50 years. Next week we're looking at rising health care costs and the impact locally, particularly on governments and their employees. If you have ideas for local issues you'd like to see us cover, please feel free to pass them along. Thanks, Brent Boyer Editor, Steamboat Pilot & Today 970-871-4221 bboyer@SteamboatToday.com

Thanks, Rhys. Happy to hear you like the new look. And my slightly younger eyes also appreciate the larger font sizes.

Carrie, I'm not technically savvy enough to tell you exactly what the feature is called, but clicking on the paragraph symbol changes the URL to automatically jump to that paragraph. This is a particularly useful feature for using hyperlinks to send readers/friends/family/etc. to specific sections of stories. For example, clicking on the link below will send you to the paragraph with my quote:

Melanie, You're not the first person to suggest today that we reinstate the most-discussed stories section on the mobile version. Thanks for the feedback. We plan to discuss it tomorrow, and I wouldn't be surprised if we bring it back. Thanks, Brent
