Scott, Thank you for contacting me and asking for clarity. The paper only allowed a max of 800 words and I was editing my piece everywhere I could. I was talking about the exploration permit with Quicksilver. It was on a scheduled Thursday night with the Routt Planning Commission meeting that we passed the permit 7-2. I voted to pass the permit. Then, the next scheduled meeting (3/20/2012) the Board of County Commissioners and they were the ones that stayed until after midnight to make sure all concerns were met and passed the same permit 2-1. The meetings are packed like sardines and I did not mean to confuse those who were not in attendance. I promise to be clearer in the future. Thank you for your advice on natural gas. I hope to talk to you more in detail on this issue. I would like to invite you for coffee or tea at your convenience this week in Oak Creek. Please contact me @ 819-0815. I would be happy to meet you face to face to talk more about the issues that concern you.

Rock on Katherine and Crew! Hey, you can find locally grown annuals, perennials, vegetable plants and herbs right here in Routt County. And they are ready right now! Give Jay Whaley FFA/Ag teacher @ SOROCO a call. Local senior is sellling plants out of the school greenhouse as a summer FFA project. Save on gas, lower pollution and have bragging rights that local high school students grew the plants!


Brita Horn 6 years, 4 months ago on Candidates unclear, process unfolding in race for Sen. Al White’s spot

Thank you Jack! We need transparency. This process needs to be fair, balanced and every candidate needs to “get and equal shot”. We need a Senator that is willing to balance the budget and quit the spending; an age old routine that has been out of hand for way too long. We do not need more of the same. We need a Senator that sees the hard work ahead of them and is willing to get the work done. A person that was willing to go out and get voted by their peers. Routt County voted Bob McConnell as the clear winner in the Congressional Primary in August 2010, by 887 more votes than the contender. Clearly, Routt County voters are rational and reasonable! Bob McConnell is exactly what the voters of Routt, Eagle, Garfield, Moffat, Rio Blanco and Jackson Counties wanted. Call your committee chairperson, don’t be afraid to use your name, and tell them who should be our next Senator for state Senate District 8 Seat. Let’s let Bob get the work done!


Brita Horn 6 years, 4 months ago on 2 familiar names surface as possible replacement for Sen. Al White

I'd vote for the person that stood up to be an elected candidate and was voted by their communities. Bob McConnell won the Republican vote in Routt County Primary by 887 votes. He also won 3 of the 5 counties that the Senate seat represents. McConnell only lost by less than 180 votes in the other two counties. That’s accountability. That’s representing our party. A man that saw he could make a change and was willing to step up and be a voice that is common sense. Balancing the budget: no more taxes: and no more spending. Something we all had to do this year with our own pocketbooks. I’d vote for the cowboy, the one that sees the hard road ahead of him and is willing to get to work and get the job done. It’s time to “Cowboy Up” and let Bob get to work.

Good Job Gentlemen! Strong work for keeping the campaign civil and positive! I hope to meet Darrel and Kevin in other venues that they will serve the community. You all emulate the spirit of our Routt County Community to agree to disagree and be cognitive of our independent western strength. I look forward to meeting Kevin and talking about his experiences @ FDNY. Be Safe!

Tipton is a wash. He cannot beat Salazar...he lost by over 60% the last time. Been there, done the Salazar shirt....sadly for Colorado. Let's move on to the guy that will make the changes we are looking for... You go Bob and get to work!
