I for one am guilty many times for parking past the allowed time. I have never had a mark on my tire, a warning or a ticket (in almost 3 decades, not ever) except for at ski time square. Maybe what ever enforcment there is actualy enforced, this meter nonsense would never have surfaced.
We should all have the right to know what is in the food we eat and what was used to grow it. (If theres whip cream on my poop, I would like to know about it).
Agree with you Brian 100%. I always thought that caseys pond or ski time square would be a great spot for an out door city ice rink. Like you said, "The downtown spot is not even close to being large enough and way to close to our other city rink". What concerns me is that the city is even considering the idea... Also, the city keeps bringing up our parking problems but yet wants to take parking away to create another city park just a hop skip and jump from little toots park??? (that doesnt make sense at all to me).. We need more parking, yet lets remove parking to create something that requires more parking.. (Dumb)
I agree with you. I dont have much of a problem with people getting over when letting them know that I am passing by. I do see a growing problem with those comeing from behind without notice. No bell, no on your left, just impolite people with diregard to the people in front of them.
Well Steamboat has more places to drink than any other town per capita in Colorado. Why is that and is it realy neccessary. This in my opinion has contributed to many more young adults moving here thinking (party town).
More alcohol, more underage drinking, more dui's with loss of driving privelages, more showing up to work late because of a hangovers or a no show at all, more people having trouble holding down a job, more homelessness. GIVE ME A BREAK!! You cant tell me this doesnt lead one to lack of respect in life. I enjoy tieing one on like many in the boat, but Steamboats lifestyle has severly changed IMO due to alcoholism and the fact that Steamboat is drawing in many others who are looking for this type of party attitude. It is completly uneccessary to have this many places to drink in a small farming and athletic community. This town also has a serious suicide problem which in many cases is related to alchol and drugs.
Leading by example isnt handing out a liquor license to any one who wants it.
On a bright note...The girl to guy ratio isn't 12 to 1 anymore
Terri, I have lived here for almost 30 yrs and what made Stmbt stand out amongst other mountain towns was the soulful friendly attitude that everyone had here twords everyone.
Maybe then because Stmbt was 2/3 the size smaller, locals were happy to see new people venture into the community. We were always happy to answer questions and have a nice conversation over anything. Everyone used to say that Stmbt has the friendliest commuity I have been to. People rang their bike bell and said on your left all the time. Trust me, I have been close to shoving one of these so called local punks into the river for almost running me over with there bike with no warning. Times have definatly changed here and I do believe that the rapid growth of our small quaint town and handing out liquor licenses like candy is perpetuating this grumpy, unfriendly attitude that you are seeing.
I have been saying this for almost 10 yrs now on how Stmbt is losing its charm that brought so many here. IMO these self riteous people are not old school locals but are new school jerks that realy have no business living in such a great town. These are the kind of people that left what they had to move here but now want what they left back. Many people I have talked to who moved here recently, now want things like a home depot, target, more franchise corporations built here for there convenience. This is not Stmbt nor should it be. Growth is good for the economy but can be horrible for the community. This is what I am seeing happen here.
There are many, many great people here in the boat so when someone throws you attitude, just ignore them, dont lose your smile and remember that they are not speaking for us Steamboaters.
What a stud.!! ...... I am just not sure that $146,000 will be enough to keep this guy in doggy Alcatraz... Next time he may make a raft out of dog beds and float away down the river..... But seiously, this is something that needs fixing before a pooch gets hurt or killed.
Thanks Stmbt. Good on you for seriously looking into a big problem and coming up with solutions. Maybe trash services can charge a couple more dollars a month to help off set some of the costs of good bear proof cans. To me, that is worth the price of a bear, a replacement can from damage or damage to homes and cars. :-):-):-)
