Bob, same issue with us, teachers in the Boat. We never got any break on a pass...900 to 1000$ ... In reality, we "can't" ski from Monday to Friday because we are in a classroom with all the Steamboat Kids, including the precious cargos of resort employees.... But never mind, they must say to themselves! We educate them, prepare them for their dreams... but this is not important... So we ski week-ends / breaks only at a very high price. Ashame and not very ethical from a business point of view. Maybe the executives at Ski Corp need to read/learn my Business Ethics unit I teach in class... Anytime, by the way...

I wish I could lead all my students skiing in Alaska, scuba diving in Tahiti, attending a culinary class in France.... Who will pay for (me and) my students? We don't have the financial means SMS wealthy families have in Steamboat. Look at the socio-economic fabric of that school vs public schools. Therefore, I do not appreciate the sarcastic portray.... stigma... "Let’s see...26 days exploring Greece, or sitting at a school desk?"

Thank you, Eugene, in advance for respecting the work accomplished in public schools... where the 99% of Steamboat kids strive.

  1. Why do you want to own a gun?

You THINK Again: Since elections are designed to LEARN from our mistakes and BUILT UP our strengths.

You vote what you want, and we are philosophically so different.

Robin Crossan. We need you. We negotiated together for salaries and benefit at SSSD, there is a huge fat big Elephant in the room. We can't move on. Please help our little town heal THEN we will move on. You know only this collaboration, this equilibrium is the only way out.

People, Speak Up ~like the guy says: if only a few of us voice concerns, it means only a few of us care. I KNOW it is not the case, SPEAK UP loud and clear, then we will heal and move on to be better, the best little ski town in USA!

Good for you Harv to have become the "Perfect" model for your kids. You are lucky! However, I can tell you that no kids will connect with you because of that. Per your own words, you don't know what it is to fall, get up, dust off and move on. I don't know how this bubble of perfectness stays around you, but I know many teenagers I see everyday connect, listen and get inspired from individuals whose life experiences are a set of trials, misses and successes... Not god looking perfect guy like you, i suppose. But al least you are inspiring your own little guys, that's fair enough. Leave us the details dealing with the druggies, profanities, depressions, suicides, rapes, abuses like Kristin Bantle excelled to do with our local youth... We strive at it, we are passionate about it, you can't. You don't know what it is. Have a great life; Somehow, I will know how are your own kids will turn to be in 15 years: Perfect! Yea Merry Goes Around!
