Dan, you know if Scott took the time to actually put 1 or more of his ideas into action it would take time away from being able to share his vast knowledge, experience and recommendations on all other the subjects in the local paper. :)

Thoughts are with you Kevin, if you have never smoked then you should try the edibles.

Though I have never tried the edibles, given the news around edibles try small portions until you know the impact.


Mark Ruckman 1 week ago on Steamboat School Board votes to not sign field house agreement

The opinions on this issue will be highly variable.

Personally I agree with the board on this one. It is admirable that the funds to build the field house would be donations and 2 people put in huge resources to line up the funds. However, this is a long term opportunity and understanding the real cost for the district in 10, 20 or 30 years is real.

1:54am, not everyday you lock yourself in the car. Clearly the windows weren't operational either :)


Mark Ruckman 1 week, 3 days ago on Field house public-private agreement could be signed Thursday by Steamboat School Board

Who is responsible for cost of maintaining the facility if it fails to get the after school hours uses set forth in the business plan?

If the private entity shuts down or lets the building fall into disrepair on public / school land, who is responsible for upkeep?

If someone is injured on the premise which is on public / school land, which insurance company is liable? Clearly the school district would be the deeper pocket that any reasonable lawyer would name in a suit.
