Steamboat police chief, deputy chief put on administrative leave March 27, 2015
William E. Harvey was born in Kentucky and served in the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry, enlisted from Grant Co., Kentucky. He enlisted Aug. 6, 1861 to Mar 21, 1864. In 1880, he was still listed as living in Kentucky. By 1900, he is living in Routt Co., CO. His injuries, according to the 1890 Vet Schedule, he lost his left leg from a gunshot wound.
Many Civil War Veterans have Civil War Markers on their graves, both sides. Perhaps a similar 'marker' would be more appropriate, instead of the Confederate Flag.
From a Southerner....
Let me elaborate on Mary's Dispensary. I don't have an issue with the dispensary itself nor it's location. However, I feel perhaps the planning commission in Oak Creek should revise regulations and not allow growing/cooking of medical marijuana in a building with joint residential/commercial spaces.
First, let me say, I am NOT Munchies. I sell cigarettes, grocery, soda, lottery, etc. Mountain Market is a profitable business. It is the convenience store that was inside Oak Creek Sinclair.
Second, when a store moves or relocates that does NOT mean it was unsuccessful, a failure, etc. Apparantly, you've been misinformed as to why I relocated the business.
Thirdly, I have very loyal customers from Oak Creek and South Routt County who have supported us from day one. I am not a restaurant such as Chelsea's, Fortune's, Shorty's, and Mug Shots.
Fourth, let's get your text straight if you're going to quote me. I said, "Re-opening the gas station would unintentionally hurt other businesses and that was against what I wanted to do."
And lastly, since you've never been inside my store, Muck, you know absolutely nothing about it. High prices? Seriously? Everyone says I'm lower than the grocery store.
If you want 'hard facts' as to what the MMJ situation is doing in Oak Creek on Sharp Ave, just look at the one business that provides a service to the community that is 100% legal. It's shutting it's doors!!! Why? It's not just due to the health of one of the co-owners, but a compilation of events such as being encroached upon with MMJ grows, cooking, etc that has permeated the walls within this 'fully-legal', 'tax-producing' business that benefits the residents of Oak Creek. Even Lance has commented several times about the odor inside the store. So, folks, there's your 'hard facts' as to what MMJ is doing to Oak Creek. But before ya'll jump my case, let me state here and now. I am FOR MMJ and believe in its medical uses. HOWEVER, this is a controlled substance that is NOT being controlled in a manner which I deem should be enforced. And I hope I never see another pot plant being paraded down the boardwalk in front of the store, at least until after Saturday, April 30th when I shut the doors for good. I would also like to thank all the customers that did support us.
Owner, Mountain Market
The gas station 'store' did NOT close.... It suffered loses at the gas station, but moved in time to save the store. It's located in the old Black Mtn location as Mountain Market partnering with another company, Munchies. Come see us!!!
