Harry Thompson 1 month, 3 weeks ago on Kody May: Enough about pot

Kody, Thank you, I personally am tired of seeing it in the paper, and hearing about it on the radio. I have heard numerous winter guests say the same thing. Steamboat puts its self out as family friendly resort and then has this b.s. constantly in the news.

Legalized pot will likely become the norm in most states and the novelty will wear off here in Steamboat. I would encourage our community and the media to consider the potential long term effects to our reputation. I hope the newspaper will go out of their comfort zone and report on some real news.


Harry Thompson 3 months, 2 weeks ago on Our View: City’s credibility takes huge hit

I've known Tony Connell and his family for many years. He has never shown anything but the utmost, admirable qualities and standards in his business and personal life. I don't know what transpired in this situation (nor do any of you), however I know Tony does what he thinks is right.

We have a very hard working, under paid and unappreciated city council, who try to make the right decisions to move our community forward. If you don't like current events go to the city council meetings and express your concern. Better yet the next election cycle is coming, step up and run.

Thank you for the well written article. However I am confused, perhaps the Pilot could ask the Colorado Parks and Wildlife how the pike got into Elkhead reservoir in the first place. I'm sure your readers would appreciate knowing.


Harry Thompson 10 months, 1 week ago on Several Yampa Street business owners oppose removal of parking spaces

Watching traffic and the parking situation this past weekend I was amazed that city council would even consider removing a single parking space. Slowing traffic was a great start, requiring every property owner to have a sidewalk would make sense. Cross walks on every corner would make sense. Having a police presence to keep some semblance of order would make sense.

Closing Yampa street to traffic, thus forcing more traffic on to Lincoln makes no sense. Traffic is only going to increase in the future, taking away alternative routes is ludicrous. City council should be looking for ways to make traffic flow and making sure that when someone wants to shop or dine downtown there is adequate parking. We need a common sense approach to these problems not someone's idea of utopia.
