Terrific and thank you.
that settles it, I'm buy a pass at Catamount Lake for both skiing and fatbiking for a 'twofer'.
BTW Brock, Essam and the O.P. boys built me a great fatbike.
gubmint bad, free market good... not quite so.
shopping on the exchange last week I've thrashed my old 'free market' health ins rates by 300/mo, while keeping my current pcp and with a 50% lower yearly deductible (2.5K from 5K).
but by far and away, one of the best single achievements of the PPACA is that out of reach health insurance premiums for many are now more in reach. IMMO (in my medical opinion), the PPACA and it's future improvements may be as successful as the medicare and social security programs.
I just scanned the available plans last evening and will sign up with Anthem-BC/BS via the Colorado Exchange-PPACA (patient protection-affordable care act).
The savings, easily pays for both of our season's ski passes and amounts to, before tax deduction, of $300/month (compared to, pre-onset of the PPACA 80/20 provision) while maintaining my local primary care doc here in town and reduces my yearly deductible by half (2.5K vs. 5K) compared to what I've been receiving with the high deductible plan with Golden Rule. Nearly as sweet as Medicare.
As a retired physician, the only thing better than saving some serious dough is that it helps folks (like so many individuals, families and folks like the amiable, 23 yo waitress at Mambo recently with a devastating condition) with limited ability to obtain expensive health ins by making it more affordable (yes it is still spendy for most though the cost trajectory has been tempered) and provides preventive care.
BTW-Contact the great folks @ Mambo, with regard to the upcoming fundraisers for her.
with your current editorial duties, hope you'll have the time to volunteer with STARS this winter.
Diane, a very big and genuine thank you for representing us the way the majority of Routt Co. residents feel is imperative. Green technology and it's implementation makes sound fiscal, environmental and moral sense.
terribly terribly sad.
hopefully he will fully recover and that this will not be a career and life altering injury suffered in our town.
Jens, thank you (and all of the other riders) for the incredible effort and thrilling ALL of the fans (not just us aged ones) here in Stbt. No doubt, we at the finish, were all pulling for you on your break and descent down Rabbit Ears. (Later, we saw you riding on Mt Werner Road during your cool down before dusk.)
a site very near south Lincoln, with quick access to 40, makes a great deal of sense....perhaps relocate one tennis court, ball diamond/soccer field between the Meadows lot and the fire station.
and why not ask and promote Craig Robinson?
