Martha D Young 15 hours, 33 minutes ago on Operation Round Up transitioning to "opt out" program

While checking out at Safeway with a credit card the card reading machine will often ask if I want to donate to the charity of the month, like breast cancer research in October. In that scenario I have an immediate choice of yes or no. The YVEA plan appears to be aimed at catching people off guard and not giving them an up front choice.


Martha D Young 1 week ago on Planning commission approves conceptual plan for 180-unit condo complex near Walgreens

Pat: CDOT made turning left from southbound Lincoln to Pine Grove much easier. However, I agree with you about the lack of foresight in planning that intersection. And how about that traffic circle near the old Staples site. Wowser.


Martha D Young 1 week, 6 days ago on City of Steamboat, Routt County explore funding law enforcement building with sales tax

Sales tax is regressive in that it hurts those at the low end of the economic spectrum. I will continue to oppose any additional sales tax. Why aren't those folks considering a property tax increase, businesses excepted?


Martha D Young 1 month ago on Bob's Downtown Conoco gets new owners

Bob is a generous and gracious man; his staff is terrific. Selfishly I want him to stay, but I wish him well in his retirement.


Martha D Young 1 month, 1 week ago on City Council's top 2 Iron Horse options included a sale to BAP, Big Agnes and Honey Stinger

"She said she wasn't certain it was the best use of the property, and she was concerned the sale contract does not bind the buyers to follow through with their plan for the Iron Horse." Thank you, Sonya, for being the sole voice of reason. What sense does that sale make if the buyers aren't obligated to execute their plan? What'll we have? Another undeveloped vacant lot like Ski Time Square and the corner of Third and Oak?


Martha D Young 1 month, 1 week ago on City names new police chief

Thanks to you and the citizens' committee for your work. I, too, wonder why no one went to Fort Collins to talk to people there about Cory. Nothing was stated about his views on equal treatment of all citizens, regardless of race, creed, gender, sexual orientation, etc. That was a grave concern expressed in Kleiber's letter.
