Martha D Young 2 weeks, 4 days ago on City Councilman proposes new taxes on marijuana, lift ticket sales

"The councilman suggested the additional funding in Steamboat could pay for such things as school counseling services, drug take-back programs, police assisted addiction recovery, family and group counseling services and drug and alcohol treatment programs and facilities." Other than "police assisted addiction recover" (whatever that is), these services already exist in Routt County. Councilman Connell needs to do his homework.Scott and Chris make good points. I'm still waiting to see the numbers that show increased police encounters due to recreational pot use.

Martha D Young 1 month, 1 week ago on Bantle files lawsuit against sheriff, county

Ms. Bantle was a sacrificial lamb for the SSPD. Whistle blowers need to be heard, respected and protected, not fired, as was Ms. Bantle. Again, we're seeing the fallout of the mismanagement (euphemism) of the city and the police dept. I hope Kristin gets her day in court, to which she is entitled.

Martha D Young 1 month, 1 week ago on Main Street working on plan to bring more pedicabs downtown

On Bequia (St. Vincent and the Grenadines) there are dollar taxis. These are privately owned minivans that run back and forth on the principal streets. People can hop on and off at will, paying one Eastern Caribbean dollar for the ride. Works great on 2-lane streets with no sidewalks, gutters that are trenches, and little traffic control. Can you imagine such an operation in S.S., especially in the winter? Just adding a little humor here.

Martha D Young 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Friday night wind gust drops evergreen on Hayden home

To the Kuckkahns: That was a magnificent tree. I'm so relieved for you that no one was hurt. And I'm glad the house withstood the assault. I hope no damage was done and the tree can be saved. All the best from a former owner of that house.
