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.
My wife and I walk the core trail with our dogs every day and every day we see people skating, biking and jogging with their dog off leash.. I have heard that animal control has started more enforcement but have yet to see it on the trail.. When I moved here in 88 (for 10 yrs), there were more yellow coats on bikes handing out tickets for dogs off leash in a town of 4000 people. What happend??? There are 12000 people here now and way more dogs. Patrol NEEDS to step up and get a grip on this. I occasionally work next to the Pond's and know that many come from there and see dogs runnng around off leash daily. If your gonna own a dog then leash it up or dont get one. Its the law and there are no exceptions no matter how well behaved the pooch is.. Its no wonder why this year may be the most difficult for renters to find somewhere to rent with their pet and why more HOA's are deciding not to allow dogs even if your an owner..... By the way, if a dog attacks or even chases an Elk in Estes park, the owner will be severly fined and in some cases the dog will be put down..The rights of wildlife their outweigh the rights of any dog..
Thanks for the line up....Forgot to list what is expected to be the most attended event Steamboat will have... 2015 USA Pro Challenge ~ Aug 17/18
As I do not know officer Bantle, I cannot attest to her character. I can attest to the good characters of many who stand by her. Something does seem concerning when one person can out weigh the many and cause someone to lose their position of trust. ...IMO, the police dept works for the community and it should be an open book to anyone who wants information (good or bad). The community should have the right to know what occured. All this does is cause further distrust... What is really concerning is the fact that our city manager stated, "the process the police department uses to evaluate complaints against its police officers is a "tried-and-true process," and she supported DeLong's decision"...
Tried and True are her words... There is truly something wrong when our city manager makes such a statement yet the police dept is under investigation and she has been mentioned in the recent letter to have brushed officer complaints under the rug.
This is a stink the community needs to rid it's self from.
I'm with Tim... The money that was also waisted on parking studies could have gone along way...!!
Well put.. I was thinking the same exact way when I read the article. I do agree with the Steamboat council taking percautions and spending some time to make the right decisions but it is wrong to allow any form of business to monopolize , taxi services, mj or otherwise. Anyone should have the right if they can to be able to offer a healthy competition.. I'm not saying "lets allow one on every street corner but free enterprise is a staple in America (our vetrans fought and died for it), so at the least the city council shoud put it to a town vote... ... (Also) no name... Who wrote this article...
Phoebe is correct. Just go to a large liquor store and you will find: buzz balls, frozen magarita or hurricane otter pops, kids look a like juice boxes with that same little straw, powdered alchol and many other silly drinks that associate themselves with a younger generation and yes they still make fake candy cigs and flavored nicotine. There is a lot of hypcrit talk from those who still have there blinders on in drink town USA..
T'fall makes a great one. We have had the same one for over 10 years and it still works like new.. Some like ours have multiple racks so you can cook meat at the bottom, and vegetables or even a desert on the upper rack without mixing flavors. These also cook frozen food quite fast. (LB of frozen ground beef in about 10 min.).. I like the fact that they push the flavors back into the food. Try a red onion sometime and then cut it open. All the red color and flavor will be pushed back into the onion instead of escaping..
