Harvey Lyon 3 weeks, 6 days ago on U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet: Making air travel more family friendly

This is pure BS!

You don't hear a thing from this guy for 5 years, now he's up for re-election and panders to your "pain"!

We already pay $5 per "leg" of a air travel trip. A TON of cash. And what TSA does with those $$ is "classified".

The lat time I flew SouthWest I paid the extra to get "preferential boarding". I was at the head of the line for those that ...... get this ....... "Handicapped, travelling with small children, seniors or travelling with seniors, premier travelers, yada yada yada". I was about 81st on board which worked out fine for me but certainly reflects other things.

And Bennet wants to change that which is already available if you want to pay more for assigned seating such as United?

Sounds like a snake oil salesman to me......it will cure all of your ills......If and only if you vote for him.......LOL

Harvey Lyon 3 weeks, 6 days ago on Routt County commissioners say no thanks to parks district beyond Steamboat city limits

Well Jim, you are absolutely correct. Although I identify as a "Conservative" and Routt County seems to be more "liberal" in their voiced choices I've found they keep their wallet close to their vest only voting for the most worthy of projects that cost them their own money! :)

Harvey Lyon 4 weeks ago on Routt County commissioners say no thanks to parks district beyond Steamboat city limits

I can only speak from experience. From 1996 to about 2010 I strived to develop and maintain/improve Emerald Park. From removing barbed wire from when it was a cow field to getting something other than gravel for an infield where kids can slide into a base.

I did not ask for Parks and Rec money. I wanted to mow the grass on my own because P&R mowed like a hay field, not a ball park. We arranged grants and funding and coordination to build the fields. But it was like pulling teeth with P&R. They were largely "the enemy" who stood in the way of what you wanted to do as opposed to being a team player on four small fields.

My feeling is any Parks and Rec organization is governmental and happiest when the fields are closed and not being used. This sounds harsh but it is my experience.....they want their jobs but not their customers. We're a pain in the ass.

I can't imagine anything worse than turning over our Parks and Rec to a non-elected, non-responsive entity.

Personally I'd wait and see who gets elected as President. A change in enforcing Federal Laws might just change business plans in CO.

Harvey Lyon 1 month, 3 weeks ago on New CMC fund aims to improve college readiness, offer scholarships

Further more I believe that if "little Johnny or Jill" isn't performing up to the standards the teachers believe they should be. and I don't care if its K-12, then the kid and the parents should be called into the principles office. And if that doesn't change the problem then they should be called before the School Board.

Think about it. The School Board is our elected representatives and spends our money. If a kid is usurping our taxes then who better to explain that to them? This is no different than what Colleges do when kids are on academic scholarship and they fail to maintain a agreed upon GPA.

Kids need to keep their "Eye on the Ball" as to why they are in school and parents need to reinforce this or pay for the education themselves.

My feeling is if they didn't "get it" in their first 13 to 14 years of free education then they need to go out there and find what life is like for an uneducated person who can't make change faster than a cash register. Nothing like shoveling ditches or mowing lawns to get the point across.

After they "become motivated" I'll talk about "helping them" with tax dollars.

Harvey Lyon 1 month, 3 weeks ago on Cost to replace child care center at Howelsen jumps to $543K

Well ya know, you pass regulations for what seems like a good idea with no thought to the cost. Must have this and must have that. Must be designed this way and account for .01% of the population just in case. Turns out ya just can't build it and meet the laws you passed. Democrat versus Republican. Just sayin'
