Harvey Lyon 1 week, 6 days ago on Snowfall expected regularly through the week in Steamboat

Correct me if I'm wrong but I do believe it is PREcipitation. Not to worry, haven't met a Meteo person that can predict the weather either let alone spell.


Harvey Lyon 2 weeks ago on Solar educators on tap for Talking Green event

Well there you go! That's "trickle down" economics. Someone makes the ads, someone makes the posters, someone is employed by the money the Super Pacs spend. Long live Ron Regan's beliefs!


Harvey Lyon 2 weeks, 2 days ago on Signs of progress seen in rebuilding Ski Time Square

Sounds like the Bad News is Altira/CaFritz is going to let the 6 year vesting of the 2010 design retire and start over. Basically they don't see profit is developing the majority of Steamboat Base.


Harvey Lyon 2 weeks, 2 days ago on Solar educators on tap for Talking Green event

Always had a lot of respect for Nate Johansing who gave lots of time coaching my kids in youth sports.

I have my doubts about solar as a principle energy source until us engineers come up with a the technology to store solar energy for the times "the sun ain't shining". I'll keep working on it.

Go get 'em Nate, I love your beer! :)


Harvey Lyon 3 weeks, 4 days ago on Sarah Jones: Disagree with editorial

The single biggest energy consumer in Colorado is the MJ industry. Haven't seen too many liberal "climate change - sky's a-falling" folks give up their MJ for their quest to reduce CO2 production.


Harvey Lyon 1 month, 1 week ago on Marie L. Bridges: Eradicate fluoride

Marie, you're absolutely correct! I recommend you move immediately as far away from Hayden as you can get. Find a place with no roads, no electricity and a place you need to drill a well.

Only then will you be free from science and intelligent well educated folks. You can live off the land! Utopia!


Harvey Lyon 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Ron Roundtree: Wary of bond issue

I'm "wary" also. In the 20 years I've lived here I've seen more and more interesting ideas proposed for "critical issues" that require tax increases. More and more "fees" to cover unnecessary regulations. It now costs $5 per diagonal inch to dispose of a old TV. The list is quite long and of questionable distinction.

As the saying goes, "The Buck Stops Here" meaning I have but one wallet to give for my Country.

I wonder what the next "essential great idea" is being thought up right now that wants John Q. Public to pay for.


Harvey Lyon 2 months, 3 weeks ago on Thoughtful Parenting: Helping teens with ADHD get organized

BS! The best way to help kids with ADHD is for the parents to stop doing drugs! Including MJ !

As a former President of Steamboat Little League(5 years), now defunct, I sat in the parking lot before games and watched lots and lots of parents get "juiced" be it alcohol or drugs after dropping their kids off and before the games.

If you want your kid to succeed you will not do drugs long before you decide to start a family. Smoke dope, do drugs and deal with an ADHD kid......those are the facts.


Harvey Lyon 2 months, 3 weeks ago on Medicaid enrollment surges; Northwest Colorado uninsured rates drop but still high, survey shows

Of course folks are going to sign up for free (actually tax payers pay for it) programs like medicaid. But I'm not really sure the tax paying citizens are getting a reduction in their insurance rates due to more folks being "covered". I'd be interested in hearing other folks experience. I'd be interested to hear The City's experience.

And, awhile ago, based on an article written by the Steamboat Pilot/Today regarding the experiences of folks employed by the large restaurant chain that operates "Rex's", I asked the Pilot to follow up a couple of years later. Its been three years and haven't heard a thing.

Its going to be interesting once Obama Care stops paying the State bills for increased medicare enrollment.
