For crying out loud, why must every discussion get OFF TOPIC. This info blurb from the paper is nothing more than an activity announcement. Maybe next time the paper should just file this type of activity in the Happenings section other than 99.9% of the population have never heard of a lek so maybe it required a bit more explanation. Biodiversity, Fred, is not even in the conversation---plus snakes slither every dam* day, not once a year so your analogy is ridiculous!
P.S. The American Heart Assoc. says cheerios are good for you. . . .
Did it ever occur to you that every article does NOT have an underlying "political message" except in your grandiose mind? The paper was reporting on a wildlife viewing opportunity that happens once a year and really is quite fascinating to experience. I would think that you and Fred would feel right at home in the lek as you both like to "puff up and strut around the forum" almost daily--in fact invite Scott W. to go with you for the experience. I think you are all three "soul mates" with the male grouse at heart.
Mark---you are really a weenie . . . .didn't you eat your cheerios this a.m.??
Okay . . think of your time, gas and parking cost . . .flying to Denver is then worth how much????
Agreed, David---But if only 5 people are flying from Hayden to your destination, what is an airline to do???? Sorry, but it is simple economics . . . .
I appreciate a person of action, even if not along my personal priorities, with a purpose and vision that, preferably, corresponds with my beliefs. But I want to VOTE for that individual and want their priorities to align with my vision for the city, state, country. When work priorities are divided (ie: Steamboat's City Council) the "eye is taken off the ball."
Have you been on a grouse tour? Fun and fascinating during their mating season. Don't want to weigh in on the "political" aspects, but highly recommend the tour. We went with a retired doc in Craig and plan on doing it again!
Obviously, we as voters just vote in Hinsvark as Mayor (or not) then her/his decisions/policies will be apparent to the voters. As an elected official the paper will obviously (or not) be scrutinizing her/his decisions and policy statements as an elected official. City Council then just becomes a less important partner in granting approval or oversight for an elected official's decisions for the "cities best interests" in how best to utilize taxpayer revenues. . . . . .
Let us know how the families liked their visit to Steamboat. Wasn't it the friendliest ski resort you have ever visited despite the Colorado voters and their wishes? Won't the Super "Bowl" be great this year. Go Broncos!!
