"...decision affecting the future viability of our historic downtown commercial district and the entire business community with it". Such drama, sounds frighteningly familiar to some of the doom and gloom comments made regarding the subsidized airline program a few years back. Be afraid people be very afraid. Happy Halloween!
The most rational and balanced response I have ever read from Mr. Hartless, is there a solar eclipse happening or maybe a slight shift of the polar axis? Point well taken regarding "doing the most good for the most people..." my question is at what cost and is this a short sighted exchange with untold consequences for future generations?
Wonderful! Too many citizens these day's have adopted "truthiness" for facts. Thanks again for the clarification. The onslaught should begin in 3,2,1...
Appears to me that all the recent attention to Yampa St. may have an alternative motivation of enticing Greencourt to finally do something with the demolished trailer park sitting at the south end of the street. The city is licking their chops over tha additional tax revenue that development would generate and why not spend other people's money much the same as developers do to get them in the game. Unfortunately as many have addressed here another park or mini ice rink is not what is needed but it sure is sexy.
If common sense is the issue why didn't the developer/owner forsee the parking problem and invest the proper amount of land and money to create dedicated parking for their 200 employees? As it is there is already insufficient parking for residents and guests and now they want to blame the city, go figure. Always seems to be governments fault these days except when it comes to fighting our wars, providing disaster relief keeping our air, water and food clean, infrastructure safe and secure... Oh yea and stay away from my Medicare too. When compromise is a dirty word in politics just what do you expect from our government?
Those same tacks have been out causing flats on River Road, Sydney Peak and Catamount area all summer. It is definitely a local and a reward of some sort may help bring them to the surface.
Apologies for the outdated misinformation!
We must support this...pass it on and let’s see if these Congress understands what people pressure is all about.

I think we found where the cuts should come from. If you agree pass it on.
Warren Buffet, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:
"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.
Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.
Congressional Reform Act of 2014
Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
This is how we fix the congress. WE THE PEOPLE NEED TO TAKE THE LEAD ON THIS BECAUSE OUR SELF-INTERESTED ELECTED OFFICIALS CERTAINLY WON'T. LETS REMIND THEM WHO THEY WORK FOR. TAKE INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY OTHERWISE WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME BUT OURSELVES!
