Please contact me if interested in a short radon test. This is a 3 day test and cost is $150
Sam Bush is right up there. :-)
The free concert series has been one of the best functions in Stmbt since it was conceived and the locals here have obviously shown there support for many many years.
I personaly liked the days that lincoln was shut down and the shows were on the court house lawn. Bring a blanket and some refreshments. Those were the days with bands like Spin Doctor, Bele' Fleck, etc..
If I had to gripe about one thing with the series now is the that we are not bringing in enough well known performers like we used to except for the last show of the season. Sure the music is still good with Sam Bush and the Whailers being an almost every year occurance with the bud light series on the mountain but I dont know most of these bands that are brought in for our summer line up except for the fact that they may have played here once before. (more of a bar band).. Its still music for the soul and a great time to get out amongst friends and family and enjoy some local good times. :-):-):-)
Sorry Carpenters but it wouldnt make sense for so many reasons to create a k9 devision because of Stmbts dog population. As cute as your poem is a k9 unit would rarely get used here and would again be an expensive cost. The pooche alone would run about $40,000 and officers would have to go through expensive training.
As far as I can remember we have always had officers on horses during certain events but its something we dont see as much anymore. Maybe due to Stmbts rapid population growth.
I would like to see some officers walking the beat down town interacting with the public every day like an ambassador on the mountain. I think it would be well perceived by the public.
Kinda like the good old days.. (and not on a segway)
What I want to know is how does this make the first online article at 8AM. (even in poetry form)
Cant wait to check back later to read more of the funnies :-)
With the backward aproach to everything Stmbt these days, I am not suprised the city has allowed this to continue...Total junk show.. This realy needs to stop or be fixed. Either put another bin there, put one or two by city market or remove them and make people drive to WM or do curbside.. The mess of trash left there is unacceptable for Steamboat or anywhere.
I like what you said Erich "not very boaty" :~)
Scott makes a good point, that it realy dosnt mater where the station goes. Our police force has excellent proficiency covering the entire town. This also seems like a much better location. Centraly located and close to the hostpital which could be of benefit at times. The downtown location would then seem to be a perfect spot to turn into a large parking garage, alleviating some of our parking woes downtown.
Oops.. Miss took Oak St for Oak Creek..
But yes Oak St is horrible for pedestrian traffic. Throughout the years, Oak St has become very commercial and therefore should require a much safer access to store fronts and business's. Parking is tight and now the bike strip just makes it more dangerous. It is a narrow street to begin with but what street isn't narrow down town. They werent designed for this type of growth in Steamboat. To correctly fix the situation, I think that most properties would have to undergo a small loss of their front yard. Some business's my not be to happy about that but it would be very benneficial for all the business's to have better access. I believe they would increase there walkins by quite a bit. Especialy during our busy times.
I agree with you Harvey. Huge potential there..
Fairgrounds, Farmers Market, October Fest.The Romick rodeo grounds is a huge spacespace that could bring in a ton of revenue when not in use for other events. Wish Steamboat woud bring back the equestrian events.($$)
I feel like they got pushed out due to the never ending expansion of Tripple Crown.
Everyone needs to smoke some green and calm down.
If this country should fix anything right now it should be our electrical grid and infrastructure(sewer, bridges, etc.)
There is aparent climate change and global warming that has been occuring for some time but changes in one small country isnt going to change anything on a world wide scale.
We are doing many things that help such as being able to recycle just about anything now, more economical vehicles, natural gas, self contained green construction, solar, wind, water,etc.
If we realy want to help the environment then we should cut down on population growth which is causing our resources to be more depleted (the whole world needs to tie a knot in it already)
Ken, you are not an idiot for voicing your opinion. That would be judgmental, close minded and and does not help solve any issue. It only adds to it with offering no solutions and only harsh words twords those who are trying to offer ideas. Without listening to ideas, good or bad, we would be a very ignorant people.
Thanks for the article Ross. The community needs to keep standing strong on these topics so all facts and ideas can be heard and considered.
Every now and then someone brings up the sattelite station idea providing a second building on the mountain. This idea to me seems to make the most sense allowing patrol to spread out through Steamboat, providing a quicker response time and relieving pressure in one facility.
I dont have any idea how much money this would save but it has to be substantial.
The more we ignore our sidewalks, the more expensive and difficult it will to to repair and improve. We are a community full of families and children and tourists. This should be a top priority for Steamboat.
I live in Oak Creek as well. Although I dont see to much of a danger walking around town except for the occasional loose angry dog, it would be nice to see OC work on grants and ways to allocate funds to begin a chip and seal project through town.
I think we would see more families and kids biking, rollerblading and just enjoying not walking in dirt and mud year around. I realize this would require a huge infrastructure with sidewalks, drainage not to mention old property lines that would have to be revaluated.
Money of course would be the largest hurdle to jump. Even if OC could work on just the main streets such as Bell, Sharp, and Moffat would be a huge accomplishment not to mention the appeal it would add to Oak Creek
