Scott W No shocker there. I used to defend The Steamboat Pro Bond Issue Sheet, but no more. Their bias is disgusting. They still take money for the anti bond ads though. Probably figure they would get a law suit if they refused them.
More biased propaganda from The Steamboat Pro Bond Issue Sheet. Two letters for bond issue, ZERO against.
I went to volley ball match Sept 22. The little children were playing soccer adjacent to the high school. There was a High School soccer game going on when we left after 21/2 hours of volleyball. There was a fly fishing class of children on the lawn and various other activities that I had no idea of what was going on. I had no problem parking or getting in or out of the area. We are voting NO!
Scott W Still no response on Utah?
Tell me who you know of that was put to death that committed another crime? It worked on that criminal as a deterrent.
Maybe these quilts should be in the inner city neighborhoods where the real gun violence is. There are more shootings in Chicago on a busy weekend than there have been in Steamboat in the 18 years I have lived here.
Ann Lowe mentions "ensuring responsible stewardship". Lindsay Wert says "The focus needs to be on student learning at a reasonable cost.........". These two have my vote. Any other candidates have anything to say about fiscal responsibility?
James you are in a minority of "progressives" that support the death penalty. My hat is off to you. The only people I hold responsible for our current legal system is lawyers. They have made up the game with their own rules forever. Voting can do nothing but oust a few judges and then another lawyer replaces them. I agree that privatization of prison systems is poor policy. They will make their profits on the backs of their employees. Disclaimer I worked as a corrections officer 5 years at Yakima County Jail in Yakima, WA. I do not worry so much about the rights and the privileges of the inmates. 98% of them earned their way in there. 5 years lowers your empathy for the poor prisoners.
Bill I started at $6,500 in 1965. Does not have much to do with todays salaries does it? Your explanation of the rulings does much to prove what I said. The lawyers make the rules of the game and they make them so complicated, there is no right or wrong. There is always some judge who will say the first judge is wrong so you keep appealing ad nauseum. Forget about the death penalty. you appeal 20 years for the mass murderer in the pizza shop in Denver and when appeals are exhausted, Hickenlooper says, I am not going to execute him. Lots of justice there for the families of the victims.
Bill No enrichment? All these scammers are providing themselves with high paid taxpayer funded jobs for the rest of their lives on ONE case! Just saw the average income in Routt County was $56,000. What is the lowest paid prosecutor or public defender paid on day one? The really greedy lawyers become politicians and hope they make it to Congress where the become really wealthy. Check Congress approval rating. It may eventually make it to 1% approval. That would be the 1% of the population that are lawyers.
