Oh, drink some more KOOL-AID. Objectively, it sure seems like a few members should (would) abstain from this vote. Hasn't THIS question been asked and answered before?

Scott, well said. Last night, the vast majority of the 100+ citizens clearly voiced that they would appreciate a targeted approach of enforcement of the leash law to those identified, higher traffic-problem areas rather than a 'city-wide Dragnet' enforcement of the written law. On the outskirts and trails, (IMO) the City Council's directive for stricter enforcement of the written law seems to be 'in search of a solution to a problem that doesn't exist'.

M.S., very nicely stated. thank you. Dear SSCC/SSAC, "In search of a solution to a problem that doesn't seriously exist here." I guess I missed a posting from a Harvey....

humbling...only reinforces that I was never born with any athletic talent and that I'm old. I'm just happy to still grind it out to the top (and not croak) shy of 2 hrs.


dave mcirvin 3 months ago on Going the extra mile: Several miles of new trail in the works in Steamboat Springs area

Yesterday, just traveled back from riding the Monarch Crest-Silver-Rainbow w/ a couple of my best cycling buddies...and this timely article is in the Pilot...Thanks Kent, Jack, Scott et al. (To my eye, is the trail that Chris is climbing-the one his best buddy quad-paw has already summited-the two track leading to the start of GTR?).

Terrific citizens, WM, Steve and Les. Still requires continued vigilance (+/- enforcement) on the commercial side of things since it appears the majority of the nocturnal bear activity seems to be town.

Nice glimpse into what makes this happen. Thanks to the volunteers and corporate sponsors...each year, it seems even more spectacular and last evening was no exception.


dave mcirvin 5 months ago on Dog patrol: Stepped-up leash law enforcement sparks resistance, debate in Dog Town USA

Stuart, hilarious and a good one!
I agree with you and with Bill Murray from Ghostbusters ..."[Dana is possessed] Dr. Peter Venkman: I make it a rule never to get involved with possessed people. [Dana starts passionately making out with him] Dr. Peter Venkman: Actually, it's more of a guideline than a rule..."

(IMO) most folks would lean towards the laissez-faire side of this issue (guidelines rather than laws/rules) and enforce-patrol those locales where there are "incidents" ("get off my lawn"-Mr. Wilson v. Dennis Menace), safety and a need.

But enough about this. We need to form a few more committees, hire some more consultants and obtain more citizen input about where to put the new police station.
