thoughts: 1. Let the indoor soccer league give the school district a damage deposit (like a renter would) and costs of damages could be taken from it. This would be reasonable given the apparent history of abuse. 2. Keep school facilities dedicated to the purpose of education of the districts' students and let the soccer league use the sports field by the Botanic Gardens. 3. Any group bringing drugs (alcohol) into the school should be banned.

I'm sure the excavation needed to bury the lines would tear up the canyon much worse than the new poles have. Notice how the work is now nearly completed. BTW we use the canyon daily, love it, and have no complaint with YVEA's work. Thank you.

I'm with you, Tom. Some of the best skiing isn't for sale. Wool army pants, dried fruit and nuts, Ravens and Steller's Jays, a couple of friends and the Colorado sky and some sweet snow, all for free.


Paul Brabenec 5 years, 7 months ago on Our View: Plastic bag fee won’t work

What people are used to is not bringing any kind of bag with them. The plastic bags provided now aren't free, we pay for them in our grocery prices. They are mostly reused for disposing of pet waste. So how about requiring the use of bags made of the biodegradable material I've seen in Boulder at the parks for pet waste? This company offers biodegradable one-trip bags that are used just like the ones we use now but would break down in the landfill rather than preserve our dog poop for posterity. thank you.

What an amazing privilege to see Jeannie Longo, perhaps the greatest female cyclist ever, ride away from the field for a solo finish of the criterium AT AGE 51!

Thanks to the SSSR organization for putting on a great show here in the streets of town.
