The conditions of our highways and bridges are such that the failure of three members committee to allow a full vote in the senate is indeed unfortunate. By that denial the public is denied the right to vote to increase taxation to improve our roads and highways. Such an increase may or may not pass but at least the public could vote on such an increase.
Mr. Barkey created the extra publicity in this case by stating the plea offer to the county.court (which also was the wrong court to state the plea deal as the county court has no jurisdiction to receive a plea to a felony charge). All he need do is discuss the plea offer with counsel for the defendant and if accepted by the defendant then go to the district court and enter the pleas. Following the entry of the pleas the court can either accept the disposition or reject it following the preparation of a pre-sentence report and the statements of counsel.
As a result of Mr. Barkey's action more jurors will need to be called to serve and the trial will be lengthened by the necessary questioning by the court and counsel as to pre-trial publicity as it may effect a juror's ability to serve.
Just another alcohol Saturday in town.
Please come to Steamboat and listen to your constituents about Trumpcare. Or, for that matter meet face to face with your constituents anywhere in your District.
In the early 80's my best friend, Alan Barbee, was on city council and had the audacity to suggest a lift ticket pass. When time came for his re-election the Ski Corp who vehemently opposed the tax helped fund a political pac to fund a candidate to defeat Alan and indeed he lost.
If in light of Trump's budget proposal, if passed. will your federally funded rural clinic be on the chopping block like so many other programs for the poor and needy ? I hope that's not the case.
Guess we'll see what Congress does with the actual and final budget.
Allegedly, Donald is big money (he refuses to release his tax returns to prove it) as are the majority of his cabinet. The rich on both sides are getting richer and you and I aren't. Big business as usual.
Of Course there is Kellyanne Conway. And, we are paying for her to remind us that it's all "fake" news.
John, RIP good friend.
"The Springs City Council on Tuesday will consider approving the funding recommendations for the events.
A seven-member committee, which included two City Council members, came up with the funding recommendations for each event."
Nice to see that the CHAMBER has its city council insiders on the same City Council that will undoubtedly approve this handout to assist the CHAMBER in it's further brutal marketing of our City. Instead the money could be best used to build a wall on the Pass. Let the CHAMBER fend for itself.
