No! Only bankers under GOP deregulation get to steal 4-5 Billion dollars and get off with lighter ( i.e. NO) sentences.

As a resident that commutes 131 everyday and lives on a gravel road and drive, and suffered through interminable construction on 131, the need for a pit in the South Valley is obvious. But make sure the controls are in place with a STRONG reclamation plan.

JLM Hmmmm! "Tax and spend Liberals" as opposed to "borrow and spend Conservatives" borrowing from China. As a fiscal conservative I find it preferable to pay as you go. We have gotten very little over the last eight years for an additional increase of three trillion dollars to our National debt. Crumbling infrastructure, one of the worst health care systems in the world, runaway oil prices with huge subsidies to corporate oil company frinds and supporters, a war that pays other friends huge sums of money, think Haliburton and subsidies, etc. etc. etc.... The piper is knocking at the door and it is time to pay!

Bill, I don't think it is a large population of the electorate that thinks Sarah Palin is up to the job. According to polls its getting smaller every time she talks to a reporter. The debate likely will do her in. But, I do expect her to attack, attack, attack with lies and smears; kind of like Schaffer this morning. Nothing to say but FEAR! And, I do think that the posts above are Good Ol Party supporters who think George Bush is doing a good job along with a whopping 26% of other good Americains out there.

Cunningham, pay absolutely no attention to colorado pu. There are many in the community that support the BOE and their decisions. This is a great district with great parents, great teachers and administrators and great students. Oh, and a few with a dull axe to grind and no life!

The half cent sales tax is critical to the Con-tinued success of the school district and the children of Steamboat Springs. If the tax goes away, so will elementary class sizes of 18 students or less per class. Secondary class sizes of 20 or less will also disappear. Technology improvements that help keep our students abreast of the ever changing information age will disappear. Marthalee, your idea of a property tax increase is interesting, but, the state of colorado and the taxpayer approved TABOR issue make it impossible to raise any property tax for the benefit of education. In the name of "equity" the state determines how much property tax can be collected per enrolled student. Local districts are unabe to change that. I agree that we pay less property tax in colorado than most states, which is why colorado schools are often ranked 49th in the states for funding. The half cent sales tax was an incredibly ingeneous way of raising additional funds for our students on a local level and it has proven valuable in our current ranking in the state for student achievement. People shoud not kid themselves, the amount of money that a district has does make a difference in the achievemnet of our students, our children! Not that money is the only key to success of a district and its students but if you look at districts across the country, those who achieve the highest also spend the most.
