The zipper merge is more efficient period. No accordion effect. More equitable. No back ups into intersections. No steaming mad lemmings in the accordion lane. Happier results. We don't ski into a single file lift line,----we use merge lines. Simple.

Joey, Dusty is correct in saying we should use both lines to the merge point. Surely you can understand why a ski area doesn't line us all up, single file to get on a ski lift. Same principle here. Using both lanes cuts the length of the line in half AND ensures everyone gets through equally. This shouldn't be viewed as rude especially since the signs clearly direct us to do this. Longer lines back up into other intersections. We should all get this "clue".

Great job Harrison! Your hard work and practice should set you up as a contender in the senior division in the coming years. Kudos to Dave DelaMater for coaching Archery and to Rick Kirby for coaching .22 and air. South Routt 4-H shooters and archers have been so successful this year because the time and care you guys gave. Congratulations shotgun guys and all Routt 4-h shooters!

Ripe apples and good stewardship? How about selfish opportunist. Or shameless rationalist: -By using 1Timothy 6:17, "God gives us richly all things to enjoy" as rationale, you could pretty much do anything you please, right? -Being 5 feet above the ground (try 12' on Soda Mtn!) and the animals are hibernating so it really would be OK to violate Federal law since it's really not a "respectable law". Is it really so painful for you to accept a chunk of land that is protected, as is, perpetually? Why are your rights to experience this landscape as you wish more important than those who want to protect it and to also to save it for future generations as is? Why must you tread everywhere and impose your will anywhere? Again, it seems the only answer you will have is: Me, me, me!

Mark, The Wilderness is not merely yours and mine to experience. There will be a time when you and I don't exist anymore. The rights of the unborn future generations must be considered if you are to say that you are not being selfish with your flagrant abuse of Our Wilderness.

Theodore Roosevelt was much more eloquent than I: Defenders of the short-sighted men who in their greed and selfishness will, if permitted, rob our country of half its charm by their reckless extermination of all useful and beautiful wild things sometimes seek to champion them by saying the “the game belongs to the people.” So it does; and not merely to the people now alive, but to the unborn people. The “greatest good for the greatest number” applies to the number within the womb of time, compared to which those now alive form but an insignificant fraction. Our duty to the whole, including the unborn generations, bids us restrain an unprincipled present-day minority from wasting the heritage of these unborn generations. The movement for the conservation of wild life and the larger movement for the conservation of all our natural resources are essentially democratic in spirit, purpose, and method.
