Eugene, I think you forgot to mention a few phrases..."private property" or "ask permission first". The people who own the property in one of your pictures that do not want skiers on their property, mostly for liability purposes. If, heaven forbid, someone falls into a tree well or hits their head on something and gets seriously injured, will the Steamboat Pilot take responsibility since they told people to go poach freshies?
I just wanted to chime in because readers who have not been there yet may think everyone's experince has been abysmal. My husband and are Hayden residents and have eaten there atleast 5 times, and never ever had a bad experience! We enjoy it very much. The food is always good. The service is always very friendly. Even when someone called in sick, and they were short staffed, everything was fine. The Sunday Brunch is wonderful. Maybe if more people put their money where their mouths are, and make a short trip to eat there, it won't do as poorly next year.
It is just me or do the same people chime in on everything with negative comments or smart a** remarks?
YVB, I invite you over to my house, to see my big beautiful garden and my 4 chickens that live in my beautfully manicured back yard. You can have both those items without looking like rural Russia. It does take time and effort to keep things clean, but it can be done.
And your comment about "two to tango" for eggs. Maybe i'm reading it wrong, but hens lay eggs without roosters. News Flash.
You should know a little about what you write.
I don't think we should expect populations to stay exactly the same. They fluctuate. Rabbit numbers are down considerably this year, but eagles have been plentiful. Nature will work things out. Furthermore, we let towns and cities keep growing into deer and antelope habitat and no one says much. But when it comes to the controversial topic of oil and gas exploration, all of the sudden people really care about the impact.
I love these signs. They mean "almost home" when on a long road trip. Thanks for keeping them up.
When the column says Clem Eller had no living relatives, that is untrue, if you count relatives thru marriage. Bessie James, his wife, was a sister to Sadie James. Sadie married Nels Dunckley, whose family lived on the Dunckley Flat Tops, hence the name. Sadie and Nels had 4 girls: May, Pearl, Margarette and Ruby. Margarette (Mac) married Bob Robinson and had two children. Their relatives still live in Hayden today. All 4 Dunckley sisters did marry, and several had children.
The buildings on 13th street (in the picture) should have never been approved to be built there. Having lived here for 33 years, I know that 20 years ago when we had wetter weather, that area was ALWAYS under water in the spring. There is also a natural spring on the side of that hill. When those buildings went up, it was discussed by long time locals, that it was a very bad idea. I see building going up in wetlands more and more...and I wonder does the Army Corp of Engineers look over these project anymore? They used to. The weather has been dryer for quite a while so new residents don't realize what they're getting into, when they buy one of those buildings.
The tax payers paid for a larger study than Kum & Go did, and it said historic downtown is not the greatest place for a gas station. Does that not matter? The vote tonight is not wether or not we want a big brand new Kum & Go, it's wether or not Hayden should amend a current rule that prohibits them from moving to another location in the Historic District. If they were petitioning to move anywhere on the outskirts of town, there would be no arguement, do you see that? The added jobs will be 1-2 more clerks. Yes, that is something, but not quite JOBS JOBS JOBS. Kum & Go building materials come from out of town. I'm not sure on this (and neither are you) but I think they bring in their own crews from out of town to build it. The 3 million dollars to build this Kum & Go does not go directly to the town of Hayden. Yes, the construction works will likely spend money in Hayden, but they will if they're building one on the outskirts of town as well.
Kum & Go bought a lot that was in forclosure before they had permission to build on it. They knew the rules. Don't you think that may be why their "study" says that is the best lot to build on?
We all want a big new Kum & Go, it just needs to be on the outskirts of town, so that downtown has a chance to be something better than a gas station. And that may take time.
Come to the meeting tonight and address your comments to the council.
Buffalo Gal Ice Cream Truck,
I think you'll have more success once people have seen you more than once. The first time we heard an ice cream truck in Hayden, we thought... "There are no ice cream trucks in Hayden. Could be creepy." Now that I know who you are and that you really sell ice cream, I'll be waiting for next summer.
