Nice job!!! Great story with a great happy ending. I am soooo glad you got your pooch back June Bug.
I cannot imagine this happening to one of our dogs and especially here. This is a further reminder that our peaceful quiet little community is no more. I only wish that these culprits would have been caught and arrested but more importantly you got a member of your family back. A BIG THANK YOU, to Ken Feder for being the kind of person that you are. The community here is lucky to have such a person willing to go the extra mile for one of our own.
Even though Kelly and I are not on face book I think I am going to get my pooches one and will now keep a more watchful eye when out and about.
Plus ASC (American Ski Company) or as I liked to call it: (Another Screwed up Company) was the beginning of the end for the Steamboat Ski Area.
(Peter A.) I have one of those stickers somewhere.. More Steamboat, Les Otten and he got snowballs thrown at him.. I miss the days when the majority of the locals didnt put up with such garbage in the boat and called anyone out for such...
PLEASE EVERYONE, VOTE - NOOOOOOOO....!!!!! Keeping this one field closed will not impact TC except by giving them more self entitlement. It will however make a major difference on the impact of that area which has been off limits for such reasons. Its getting old with the newbies wanting to change the great way of living here and wanting to keep crowding this small community with more and more negative impact on this small valley. Jobs will not be impacted by saying no because this field has always been off limits plus have you opened the paper?? Employers are having a hard time filling positions as it is. Pay may not be the best but there are plenty of jobs to be had in Stmbt.. High rent, no available low income housing and a SNEAKY city manager that is obviously not the right fit for this community is a lot of the problem IMO.. Lets all make sure that NO is the only answer!!
Ken- We will have to agree to disagree. I'm more concerned about the abuse our river is taking from the excessive tubing. The floating trash is getting worse every year - fire ball shooters and flasks, beer cans, cig buts, popped crappy pool tubes, etc... My wife and I walk the core trail every day with our dogs and its been getting worse and worse every year. This year will be nothing short of (SAD). This is not from commercial but private tubing (walton ponds-down).. I say, let the bears and moose chomp down on them...
Ken -Did something happen to you that has made you feel this way twords the wild life that has made the yampa valley home here since long before us. I do agree that the moose are definatley becomeing more of an issue because they are very unpredictable, and more are moving in but I cant remember ever hearing of a bear attack in steamboat since moving here in 88 or even a mountain lion attack. There have been encounters but not attacks that I am aware of.
Learning to co-exsist with Colorados wildlife is part of living in this great state and although we are more likely to be killed or hurt in a car crash there is always that chance of a bad encounter with any type of wildlife. The only only solution to this would be installing an electric fence around town, LOL.. There will always be wildlife venturing in and out of town and couldnt imagine it any other way.
Black bears dont go around typicaly chasing wildlife. They are mostly lazy foragers, looking for an easy meal, especially human food which has become a problem source. Yes they can kill a deer, moose, elk but almost always a young and not very often. Human attacks are even rarer. You will most likely be struck by lighting first. This story is somewhat confusing. Makes me wonder if the bear was actually seen chasing the calf down or if the calf was already dead and the bear was seen having a free meal.. Saw a mountain lion one summer chasing a deer down on Rolex. A coulple years later there was a mountain lion and 2 cubs hanging out and playing up by Bear Claw.. I believe the most dangerous animal in town now is the Moose and quite frankly I get nervous hiking around Steamboat now even with my dogs on leash.
we still have some good officers here who dont deserve to loose there career due to a few bad apples. IMO, the entire department should go through a psychiatric evaluation to weed out those officers who WE pay to SERVE the community and public.
Funny!!! I think Steamboat would have a very good running in this years Budweiser's commercial shoot... "Whatever Town USA"
IMO..This smells like an agenda against her maybe stemming as far back as the harrassment and complaints that are mentioned in the letter.. Everyone I have talked to holds great respect for her and in a small community that says alot. We have all used language in a place we may have shoudnt. Why wasnt she pulled a side and spoken to instead of terminated from that position. Does the police dept now have a 0 tollerance rule against profanity. If thats the case then just about every police officer better start looking for work elsewhere.
