jlkar 6 years, 10 months ago on Steamboat woman, son killed in jet crash

To The Symons,

I am so sorry for your loss. Though I did not know Jeanette but a little, I had coached Balan on the freestyle team. He had a vivid imagination and a spice for livening things up. He was too young and had many more adventures ahead of him. My best to Jennie and may you all remember the good times you had together. Sincerely, Jackie Karolewski

Gladys, thank you for bringing these concerns to the forefront of this small forum. It is amazing how things are tied together when it comes to illegal immigration these days. Not only pertaining to the workforce and the economy, the taxes legal citizens pay that covers birth, medical, and inversely more secure borders, etc. but most importantly the safety of ourselves and our familys. What to do? He should sue local, state and federal govs... maybe shed some light on this growing problem. the sad thing is... what else will attract the attention the issue needs?

If people aren't responding to the voluntary closures, why don't we make them involuntary? People can figure out other places to go recreating other than those 5 places. It is unfortunate that the requests aren't being observed but I am not surprised.

CoJustice- I know they have a diversity club at the high school... I am sure some of this fuels their thoughts... with good reason, to question why things are the way they are... and how the "other halves" live. I would assume that some of the kids do feel street smart and that in time, their ideas and opinions will be challenged and only then will they begin to live as adults (hopefully)... it brings to mind the uttering "That's not fair" and then the famous "Life's not fair"... and so adulthood sets in.

I agree- I was more joking, and I too am sure I could find something to appreciate. I am not sure everyone could though. In my opinion, the most important point you make is that it would be nice to know people's backgrounds and experiences because it would add not only credibility but also depth. Maybe one day we'll get there...

Hey, I was a history major! And what makes you think I would want to live your 'hood anyway!

Mike- See here is the thing about anonymous debates; if I meet Matthew Stoddard (keilbasa) somewhere down the line, I will have to shake his hand and smile, knowing that his viewpoints about the rec center and tourists make me want to scream. On the other hand, if I met Matthew Stoddard before he decided to unveil himself, I could shake his hand and maybe even find something about him that I like. And Keilbasa would still just be an annoying sausage to me. This town is too small to live in that kind of mental stress. Maybe in a few years, we could all meet at a coffee shop (not Off the Beaten Path, cause it will be gone) and hiss across the table at each other. or leave nasty messages on our mud-seasoned cars. diversity at its finest.

Mike has a valid point. however, I think there is confusion between opinions and character. I have many different opinions than people on this forum but I would still be happy to respect and enjoy the character that makes them up. ID brings, Vor and all others bring up points that make people think- which is why these blogs are here. To promote thought. I am never personally hurt by people's comments and I am sure, outside our opposing views, we have similarities in common too. However small those may be. Maybe just accepting the fact that people have DIVERSE opinions shows good character. I think some folks are taking things too personally.

jlkar 7 years, 1 month ago on No snow, no go: Ski area postpones opening day

Day off on Thanksgiving is going to be grand. I would be fine sitting on the porch in a tank top with a beer. Steamboatgirl... by the way... attacking people we don't know- what was with the "YOU were the ones drunk for the last year". huh. sweet, since we have patiences we must be drunk? And finally, Kiebasa, ya dork- you were the one who asked if I remembered the winter of 80/81 with no snow and hinted at its comeback- why don't you tell your little tourist friends that. no rec center AND the possiblity of no champagne powder. Board the windows- ghost town here we come.
