Neil O'Keeffe 1 week, 5 days ago on Bear euthanized, suspected of ripping through shed door in Steamboat

Be AFRAID, very Afraid! Yogi and Booboo are headed your way, guard those picnic baskets and certainly don't leave your little ones out unattended. I still believe in the right to arm bears no matter what anyone says!


Neil O'Keeffe 1 month, 3 weeks ago on Coogan out, new police investigator named

Does this stand out to anyone else?

"You have the opportunity to improve your credibility with the community by handing this off entirely to a third party until the report and recommendations are complete," Connell wrote. "Then you can take the report and recommendations and make different recommendations to us if you think different actions will be effective given your personal judgement on the staff involved."

Isn't it poor "Personal Judgement" that got us here in what should be the fourth or fifth strike for her time at the plate? When is city council going to wake up and realize they are holding the bat, ball and the bases? Enough baseball metaphors but hey tiz the season.


Neil O'Keeffe 1 month, 4 weeks ago on Former Steamboat police detective has strong words for City Council

Look for recent letter from former SSPD officer Nick Moore to residents of Steamboat Springs for further confirmation of accusations made by Dave Kleiber. The evidence is building and hopefully the city council will take appropriate action toward all those involved. As Nick stated β€œThe only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke). May not be pure "evil" in this case but certainly abuse of power and a gross ineptitude of management at the highest levels of our city government.


Neil O'Keeffe 2 months ago on The Foundry, voted down by Routt County commissioners, would have treated addiction

May be time for Mr. Borden to start up a pig farm on his property. His NIMBY neighbors and the commissioners would certainly not have a problem with such an appropriate use.


Neil O'Keeffe 2 months, 1 week ago on Building a friendlier downtown: Steamboat Springs City Council weighs urban renewal plan

So how do we get the public involved in answering some of a Rob's questions and how do we avoid having this shoved down our throats by a minority that almost certainly have a hidden agenda? Scott's point if true "The URA allows funding the police station from reserves instead of needing a public vote to approve the bonds. The URA prevents any future City Council from reviewing or second guessing the spending of $10+ on downtown" is very disturbing to say the least. Will any petition/signature gathering from city and county voters have any kind of positive impact in slowing or stopping this run away train? If so let's get it started and how can I help!


Neil O'Keeffe 2 months, 2 weeks ago on Planning Commission denies application for The Foundry rehab center

But barns full of pot are ok with adjoining neighbors? I imagine there would be plenty of vocal opposition from neighbors if it was proposed within city limits as well. But hey we really need such a center just Not In My Back Yard!
