Experience has shown me that often the "eager beavers" stand to profit from the slaughter.

I went for about forty years of my life without seeing a bear. Killing is efficient but maybe we can move if it becomes a problem. Council can appoint another citizens committee to solve the problem ala the police station and avoid making a decision.

The city could not make the decision so they put the monkey on the back of a citizens committee. One problem, that was not the desired outcome. Now the monkey has transferred to the Counties back and it is up to them to make the city an offer that will never be good enough. The city can proceed and the association can evolve over time as the county can't jump thru the cities hoops. I have said from day one that the committee was being used and will be abused.

John. Your spelling and facts need a little refresher. I see the only feasible route staying on grade with the railroad and paralleling it. The new school and hopefully police station will certainly provide impetus to development of services on the west end. This will reduce the need to clog Lincoln in many instances. George is on the right track with his traffic concerns. We have had a reprieve from traffic on Lincoln due to the economy but gridlock is definitely in our future and it ain't gonna be purdy. In the past the city has refused to acknowledge traffic problems, maybe that is why we are being ambushed by an errant police problem.

Fred Duckels 1 week, 1 day ago on Rob Douglas: Police report is deficient

Much concern about the past, what do we have going on today that is equally concerning and is slipping through the cracks?. Solid leadership will know what is happening. Yampa Valley Elec. embarrassed the community for years all the while backed by a rubber stamp board. Real leadership finally came on the board and big changes were forthcoming. Winning an election involves more than basking in the glory, we need real leaders.

Assuming that the police dept. had problems and that the chief was deficient, this probably has been an issue for years. The lawsuit problem should have caused alarm from even a casual viewpoint. The fact that thls takes a whistleblower to sound the alarm speaks volumes about staff and elected leadership. Are they'll all on pot? Yampa Valley Elec. went on for decades embarrassing the community before leadership was elected to the board that called a halt to the fiasco. This problem calls to account all those wannabees that waited for someone else to step up. Sadly the list is long and goes back years.

Peter, Bill Shurman's post makes has me concerned and not willing to accept at face value all the info. I have run a business for a long time and there are assessments of my competence that range from acceptable to moronic. Will Rogers said don't believe anything that you read and only half of what you see. I find it hard to feel comfortable with this situation.

I know nothing about the situation but it seems that we failed to address the lawsuit situation. This is concerning. Peter, you seem to be creating quite a bit of smoke but I have to ask the question "where's the beef" ? Time may tell. Are we looking to create a sanctuary city here?

Fred Duckels 3 weeks ago on Letters to the Editor: Environmental religion

As is usually the case it boils down to votes. Clinton Gore never uttered a peep about environmental concerns. After Gore left office there was a massive program to seize the high ground and turn this subject into a harvest of voters. It has worked thanks to the parasitic constituency that will profit from Democrats in power and that is significant. Government workers, unions, media, academia and the scientific community all are bellying up to the trough and parroting the propaganda. This pursuit of power is pervasive throughout society and covers nearly every subject that passes as news for the day. Mark has identified the atheist mentality as using this religion much as have scoundrels down through history.

With Kathy's help maybe Dianne's priorities of a monorail to the mountain and high speed trains galore can become reality.
