"Connell proposed the tax proposal and appeared to be the most passionate about putting it on the ballot. Connell and other community members have expressed concern and alarm about an opioid abuse epidemic that has resulted in the loss of community members.

Connell said the tax proposals could help to combat that epidemic"

If the problem is a opioid abuse epidemic then why tax alcohol, marijuana, and chewing tobacco ? If council really wants to address a real problem in Steamboat then increase the tax on alcohol to deal with alcohol abuse and it's related societal costs.

Jerry, once again we agree. Cigarettes are poison so tax the hell out of therm. I do not wish to pay for the health costs of those who smoke.

I always enjoyed reading "Carl Creel's" article in Thursday's PILOT and visiting with Neil on the street. May you rest in peace and find that fishing hole.

"8:36 a.m. Steamboat Springs Fire Rescue firefighters were called to help a 3-year-old child who accidentally shot himself at a home in the Stagecoach area. The boy died at Yampa Valley Medical Center."

My question is: how does a three year old get access to a loaded gun ??
