Has anyone noticed that under Anderson there have been three different S.S. Airport managers in a short period of time, and that he didn't obtain the easements for the roundabout in a timely manner?
The earth at Howelsen Hill slides as it always does. The city hustles to repair the damage to the chair lift pole caused by the slide so the Howler can run in the summer. I think this is an example of what Scott and David are addressing. The city's liability and the hill's hours of opening to the general public are matters about which all Steamboat Springs citizens should be informed. Since we taxpayers are footing the bill for the operation of H.H. of course we should know how our tax dollars are being spent.
Tail wagging the dog.
And I thought our founders who wrote the Second Amendment were worried about the US president becoming another George III. Thanks for the information, Eric.
Thanks, Scott and Eric. I worked at the Alpine Slide (Howler) for several years after its inception. Its revenue was going toward paying the debt from building the slide. I was also on the Ski Patrol at Howelsen. Patrollers were city employees, but we provided assistance at SSWSC races. The hours and days that the hill was open to the public were drastically cut, and SSWSC parents took over running the lifts and patrol duties while SSWSC was using Howelsen. In my mind that change presented a huge potential liability to the city.
Scott, Do you know if the SSWSC pays any money to the city for its "lease" of Howelsen Hill?
Thanks, Ken. I'm still at a loss as to how owning either an automatic or semi-automatic rifle is justifiable.Hunting, shooting sports and self-defense do not require such weapons.
I still don't understand why individuals "need" to have automatic assault rifles. Are they expecting mobs to storm their homes?
