walt jones 1 week, 3 days ago on Central Park Drive to reopen Friday

Awful decision to make it a one lane road from CPP to Mt Werner Rd and then add a tiny left turn lane just before taco bell. OH thats right that allows a bike lane! Who cares about the volume of cars that will flowing through there as long as the bikes can.

A side note...the aerial pic is a nice view. Must have been early morning since there are never that few cars in the parking lot.


walt jones 3 weeks, 6 days ago on Beaver Creek fire northwest of Walden now 5,400 acres

SB Today, you might want to update this story more frequently since the fire is just a touch below 10,000 acres now and with over 500 firefighters the city has plenty of them filling hotels.

Let er burn! Of course save the homes if possible but this is natures way of renewing the land.


walt jones 1 month, 1 week ago on Mustangs headed to Steamboat

Ah once again the only way thru town gets blocked off and this year everything is directed onto oak. Such geniuses or wait is it called bending over for the tourist. When Lincoln was being redone a few years back and all the Fords were put in the Meadows and elsewhere things were much calmer. Even with the downtown road torn up traffic and congestion of people wasnt as bad as this who has the better car show. As I mention yearly when will this city figure out its too big and 40 has too much coast to coast travelers to shut it down for these such events. Why do they keep approving bigger projects in town if they think its still a small town??


walt jones 1 month, 1 week ago on 1st phase of Central Park Drive project nears completion

You would have thought some smart project manager or engineer would have said Snapdragon Way should be paved before having it be the alternate route. That road is worse than a gravel road!!!! Geniuses


walt jones 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Central Park Drive construction being held up by easement issues

Ah the Kroenke Group...maybe they are spending all thier time and attention on moving the St Louis Rams back to LA and this project is down their list!!!

Will be interesting if this changes the schedule for the contractor to not work during the summer peak season. Hell why not just make everyone mad and work til its done...oh wait we cant inconvenience the tourism thats right!!!


walt jones 3 months, 2 weeks ago on City Council takes flak for not including more average Joes on city manager interview panel

City Manager and City Council needs to look into Anne Small job performances. She is a clone of Deb Hinsvark and was tied to the hip of Deb in all of Debs insane management decisions. Then to say she thinks an outside city staff member could ' hijack' a meeting shows her ineptitude. Scott W can recall my frequent posts about Anne Small during the Deb era.


walt jones 4 months, 1 week ago on Steamboat briefs: More than 12,000 visitors expected in town March 18

Let me say in advance I dont have issues with Texas as I have family there but good grief I've never seen so many Texas license plates in town the past 5 days! Is there a billboard every 1/4 mile on 1-35 in Dallas and I-45 and I-10 in Houston that only advertises Steamboat? This is the furthest ski area besides Jackson Hole for Texans to drive to. Insane.


walt jones 4 months, 1 week ago on City, resort officials intent on boosting visitors' sense of arrival at Steamboat resort

Just like that "replant the median" con job of highway 40 a few years back so people feel more welcome to town this is just another con job by the powers at be. If they want to use their own funds to do these jobs then fine but dont ask the voters.
