Being for things far out and benefitting the little guy can be a good recipe for politicians as they corner the "mean well " market regardless of any logic involved..

Bill, After the race in the fifties my family had a friend stop by for a visit. He had a Jaguar that he let me drag Lincoln with for about an hour. Now that was big stuff!!

Ken's little diatribe is a distraction from talking about the worst president in history. The tit for tat game invariably ends up at his level and who con compete with his experience?


Fred Duckels 1 week ago on Yellowjacket Pass due to be lowered

It is good to see some movement. In the past it seems that we were always looking over our shoulders to see if a grant from Santa might be in the offing. Let's man up and do it!!


Fred Duckels 1 week, 1 day ago on Steamboat City Council not satisfied with effectiveness of recent community surveys

I don't do surveys. Invariably they are set up with parameters to limit responses to the agenda of the day. Also meetings to solicit info are run by a facilitator and completely packaged to make sure things go as planned..


Fred Duckels 1 week, 2 days ago on City of Steamboat Springs pays $1,000 deductible related to skier death lawsuit

Going after a government entity in any case is a fruitless lesson in futility. In a way that is good as frivolous claims are discouraged. On the other hand regardless the incompetence of the entity they are basically bulletproof. So if you don't like the way your government treats you get used to it.
