Eric Morris 14 hours, 48 minutes ago on Steamboat recognized for being veteran friendly

The best thing you can do to honor this veteran is stop politicians from doing the bidding of the Military-Industrial Complex and creating ever more of us, especially combat veterans. Also, instead of mandatory vaccinations in government schools, vaccinate the minds of the children by making two-time Congressional Medal of Honor winner and Marine Corps general Smedley Butler's book "War is a Racket" mandatory reading.


Eric Morris 1 day, 15 hours ago on Police chief, deputy chief investigation expected to last into June

Gills admitting it hasn't been that intense sadly shows the Pilot is relying on press releases rather than conducting its own investigation, unless they have a bombshell waiting and are only planning to give the city a head's up for comment at the last minute.


Eric Morris 3 days, 5 hours ago on City will hire deputy city manager

Stuart, even better, everyone should always have a "secession" plan in place to avoid government run amok. Scott W. gets sent to the pokey for violating government rules; government actors violating their own rules get paid vacations during investigations or get to create Deputies when city council eliminates the position.


Eric Morris 3 days, 9 hours ago on City will hire deputy city manager

Hire Boomer the Sheriff's drug sniffing dog as Deputy City Mgr. With the amount of cash and vehicles it is going to take through civil asset forfeiture, it will cover the costs quickly. Plus, with URAs, police palaces, for profit policing, and barking and pooping dogs, this bucolic wonderland is going to the dogs anyway. It makes me question whether my wife and family should return full time once she gets the LN gig of her dreams in a few years. Place is just like everywhere else, except with a decent ski though increasingly expensive ski mountain.


Eric Morris 4 days ago on Steamboat man suspected of dealing heroin

What does it take to find all the dealers? Are you informing against any of your own family and friends? Or is that different, and in only those cases drug treatment centers, loving support, and prayers appropriate?


Eric Morris 4 days, 1 hour ago on Yampa Valley airport faces a decade of austerity due to slow recovery in passenger numbers

Raise the airline support sales tax is the only answer.

Pros of no airline service: TSA fondlers will no longer be in our midst.

Cons: Verne Lundquist would have to choose between Steamboat and a few more "Yes Siiiirs" in Augusta and "Oh Mys" in my native south in the fall.


Eric Morris 4 days, 1 hour ago on Steamboat man suspected of dealing heroin

Oh, the horrors, people using drugs without the proper government Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. If only they had FDA approval and DEA dealer numbers like MDs, then all would be kosher and celebrated.

It's for the children.


Eric Morris 4 days, 1 hour ago on Idea of police unification raised in Routt County

I support elimination, not unification, if and only if surviving RCSO agrees that its budget or manpower only grows at rate of Yampa Valley Airport passenger numbers! That's from its current force, not combining both.


Eric Morris 4 days, 1 hour ago on Boomer joins ranks at Sheriff's Office

Police state propaganda. First they came for the heroin dealers ...

Matt, what happened to the $10M? Civil asset forfeiture, as I first predicted in these illustrious forums, when this dog was first announced as the latest, greatest savior?
