Harvey Lyon 2 days, 1 hour ago on Whistleblower under investigation for perjury by DA's Office

I know nothing of the facts. But it seems to me that if lawyers aren't litigating then they're not doing what they were trained for. Just like a Surgeon who recommends surgery, if he isn't cutting he's not doing what makes him money.

The problem here is that WE THE TAX PAYERS are paying for this internal fight crap.


Harvey Lyon 2 weeks, 1 day ago on City of Steamboat devotes two parking spaces on 10th Street to new electric car charger

Wonderful! And the rates the City is paying are quite reasonable for good clean coal energy......Oh I forgot.....they hate coal energy and those that support it. But they do love those taxes the spending of which the control.


Harvey Lyon 3 weeks, 1 day ago on Proposed contract would let Triple Crown use Emerald ballfields

Yes! Absolutely! Emerald will be owned by Triple Crown for 8 weeks of the summer.

In the early 90's we moved Steamboat baseball to the fall because of Triple Crown taking over Howelsen. Its also why we built Emerald which was slated to be a affordable trailer park. How quickly folks forget.

Triple Crown has access to Teams across the Nation. They can bring in more teams than we can possibly build fields for. The problem is the numbers only work if the field is already a public park. Five tournaments a year do not pay for a field.

Triple Crown will take over Emerald a little at a time. Last year we skinned the infields making them perfect for softball as well as adjustable base path length baseball. This makes them very very attractive to Triple Crown. Girls softball is HUGE!

My biggest concern is games are scheduled while youth pickup activities are not. If a couple of kids want to ride their bikes to Emerald and play an unsupervised pickup game of their design its just not going to happen. If a Dad and a kid want to have catch its not going to happen. There will be no place in Steamboat for kids to be kids without scheduling thru Parks and Rec and paying user fees.


Harvey Lyon 3 months, 1 week ago on Steamboat man suspected of dealing heroin

Screw that ERIC......we don't want heroin in Steamboat! Arrest all the dealers and throw the key away!


Harvey Lyon 3 months, 1 week ago on Colorado weighs the best means of sharing the water

Folks.....get this straight and get this stright now.....no body, and I maena NO BODY gives a damn about Yampa Valley Water except those that live in Yampa Valley.

They'll take every drop and hire the best and brightest lawyers to do it.

Personally I feel if I have to shovel the stuff the I should be able to use it as much and however I like.

But bleeding heart liberals, like Diane Mitsch Bush will trade away our water for her political gain.

Don't believe? We're at 95% of our normal water fall and have already passed water restrictions like we were in a drought.....our politicians.

There's no drought here, by any imagination. But there is political advantage to be gained for our politicians to create a drought....raise prices and earn National advantage.


Harvey Lyon 4 months, 2 weeks ago on Lisa Mason: Leash laws oppressive

I'm sorry no one's quoted Shakespere here "release the Dogs of War"....or as Homer Simpson said "Unleash The Hounds"....LOL.

Christ, if you want the benefits of living in a City then you have to put up with the fact that not everyone loves your dog(s) or kids. Just a basic fact of City Living. Get over it.


Harvey Lyon 4 months, 3 weeks ago on More than 100 pounds of marijuana was seized from Johnson residence

Well, lets see, its walking like a duck, its quacking like a duck.......sure sounds like a home grow theft is the motive for murder.


Harvey Lyon 4 months, 3 weeks ago on John F. Russell: Remembering that games are about more than the score

Good philosophical article John. And you're entirely correct for part 1 of a 20 point article.

Shooting hoops, playing catch, bumping it around on the putting green are all fun and great opportunities to talk about all manner of things and develop friendships that last a lifetime.

However I believe that competitive sports, which have been around since man was man, are much more complex and serve a much deeper purpose.

As your children get older and progress I look forward to hearing of your memories, impressions and philosophical thoughts.
