Why has everyone forgotten that when the parks were built, we promised these fields were going to be for local use, not Triple Crown. Funds were allocated with that intent. Right now when Triple Crown comes to town, ( and I do believe they are an important summer program), there really is only three things a guest not interested in Triple Crown or a local can do to enjoy peace and tranqullity of our mountain enviornment- leave town, go up to the mountains, to camp or hike, or visit Yampa River Botanic Park. Lets not loose that option for other people visiting our community and locals!.. There are other visitors and second home owners and locals who want to enjoy Steamboat in the summer too.. I think this issue is about balance and diversity of activity. Am I alone in this thought? Why doesn't our own paper not respect the decisions of the past concerning this issue. I believe the chamber should be aggressively looking at developing more diverse activities so that we are not totally dependent upon Triple Crown for the summer. Pushing a larger presence of Triple Crown is not in the best interests of our community.
Seeing the amount of people who bring their dogs to exercise in this park. I hope that City Council gives thoughtful consideration to how important this recreational area is for out dogs. Certainly shared uses can be planned ,but please, not to the detriment of this very needed dog park. Kathy Connell
What a loss and what a shock. We all will miss Patrick and our hearts go out to his family .Kathy Connell
Scott, Connie and girls, we are all here for you and sending all of the prayers and positive vibes we can your way. This is not right that one of Steamboat's nicest and finest has been dealt this card. Kathy
I think time would be better spent talking about how can we all address this continuation of violent misuse of guns to kill people. Our leaders need our input and help, not our attacks. The problem is most people would rather write the poison than do the work. Our violence is getting worse, not better as exemplified by the latest horrific acts on the front range. good people are getting killed, and yet all,s people seem to do is whine about their loss of rights. How about some thoughtful dialogue on what you would propose to do instead of all of this hateful, emotional rhetoric?
