Why is the city spending public funds for a facility which benefits few, if any, local residents. If these well off private airplane owners want to avoid driving 20 miles to Hayden like everyone else has to do, let them pay for their own "local" airport. This is elitism at its worst and someone should put an end to it immediately. I am a conservative and the only thing which irritates me more than the government taking money from successful individuals in order re-distribute it is the government taking money from the hard-working general public to benefit only a few well off individuals!
So does Ruppel really believe that people willingly pay $20 to leave their car for a couple minutes to help someone with luggage or make sure a flight has not been cancelled. The sign does not even designate how much the fine is, so how can increasing it help? Give me a break!
“I think it’s good,” said Jacob Wise, owner of Mary’s Medical. “The city needs to make some money.”
Yeah, Jacob, making money "hand over fist" selling mind altering drugs to anyone who wants it. When was the last time you heard of a legitimate businessman saying more taxes is good? Hint, not!
What am I missing here? What does being a pothead have to do with race? So now if you oppose pot you are a racist? Huh?
If Kevin Fisher is really concerned about the patients and tax revenue, as opposed to merely enriching himself, why not advocate legitimizing the process through licensed pharmacists? Not likely!
I believe Kevin Fisher is being a little disingenuous in suggesting that any other new business would feel the same threat of a ban as the sale of marijuana or suggesting he is totally blindsided by this suggestion. Come on!
Great decision! Congratulations Sam!
Sounds like a great plan to generate more tourism for Steamboat along with the much needed additional revenue. Good luck Ryan!
You go Dan! I was just about to say all of the same things, but you did it for me! Thanks!
I am very pleasantly surprised at the outcome! Awesome! I hope it is indicative of future outcomes!
