Scott Stanford 5 years, 11 months ago on Our View: Move forward with Promenade


The editorial is in error. The Sheraton is not an obstacle to proceeding with Promenade construction. The Sheraton and the city of Steamboat Springs have reached verbal agreement on the easement issues. That agreement was reached Monday, prior to publication of this editorial. This was an error on the part of the Editorial Board, which, regrettably, did not gather all of the updated information prior to rendering its opinion.

Scott Stanford 6 years, 3 months ago on Brent Boyer: A fresh look for the front page

I truly appreciate the feedback, and I know that others have made similar complaints. We have to balance that feedback against the value the drop down ad delivers for advertisers. And it has proven to be the most effective advertising space, based on click throughs per impression, on our site. That's important given that our business model for the site is to deliver content for free thanks to advertising support.

So the short answer is we plan to keep the ad as is for now. Please know the ad should drop down only once during a user session. It should not retract on its own, though a user can close the expanded ad. If it is not functioning as I have described, please email Make sure to cite what browser and which version you are using.

Scott Stanford 6 years, 4 months ago on Steamboat briefs: Pilot & Today requests story retraction, paper removal

In February, the Steamboat Pilot & Today was asked about its chemical disposal procedures by Mike Zopf, Routt County's director of environmental health. The newspaper responded by reviewing its procedures and on Feb. 22, 2010, sent Zopf a detailed explanation of the chemicals used and how they are disposed. That's the only correspondence the newspaper has ever had with any public health agency about chemicals used in the printing process. Since Thursday, the newspaper has contacted officials from the Routt County Department of Environmental Health, the city's wastewater treatment plant, the State Department of Public Health and Environment and the Environmental Protection Agency. All have reassured the Pilot & Today that the newspaper's handling of chemicals is not the subject of any investigation by any of their agencies. There is no indication from any agency that the newspaper's handling of chemicals in the past or present is cause for concern. Still, we have again reviewed our procedures and can say with confidence that our chemicals are being handled safely, properly and most importantly, in accordance with local, state and federal regulations.

As far as the story that appeared in the latest edition of The Steamboat Local, pending legal review, we cannot comment fully on the story other than to reiterate the news brief that appeared today. It is our stance that The Local’s story is wrong and defamatory and therefore should be retracted and the editions pulled from the shelves.

Janice, et al:

I take seriously the accusation that individuals were misquoted. Neither the reporter nor I have heard from anyone claiming they were misquoted about anything in this article. If something needs to be corrected, I will be glad to do so on the front page of the newspaper.
