I'm so proud of the commissioners,you have helped to establish a trust in our county leaders ,you represent the people who live in our beautiful Routt County .To be listened to by a commissioner is so vital.Thanks to the many citizens , tourist's,and people in the whole country who signed the petition and spoke up for a clean planet.Thanks to you the water will be clean in Routt County,that is a huge thing to remember you by.I can't thank you enough.
Is gambler's anonymous in the plan?Most people barely make enough money to survive.What about the extra burden on law enforcement?Social impacts?I don't think the general public ever get's ahead at a casino,more like they loose their rent money and have to use more social services.Will the tourist's be drawn away from existing attraction's?I know it is fun to gamble, until you go home broke.
Hire vet's first ,help the returning wounded many, have brain injury and loss of limbs. Keep america free,they risk lives and die for our country,as citizens the least we can do is vote.
Oil company's neeeeed to be slapped up side of the head,money is all that they care about.They have had their own way and look how things are now and getting dirtier every day..In Erie Colorado they want to frack by the schools ,thankfully people are speaking up.Mostly mothers,they know a bad thing for children and future of our planet.I think that Nigeria pollution's are sad as when people are so poor,they cannot get clean water and at least enjoy life without cancer causing chemicals to worry about, raising their family's as best they can,same as us...........Shell ,need's to know that.......If they care about pollution's,they should conform to the EPA clean water and air rules NOW,not two years from now.Show us how you care for clean harvesting of oil for the future. It's a small world when it comes to oil company's pollution,which does not go away with time.They just do what they can get away with and do not care about anything but money,not people,, nature ,water, air or animals,and some wonder why people are forced to speak up to them,they are not listening to anyone but the expert's that they hire and our local regulation's.They must be forced in other words,that is sad.
I am concerned about every part of the world and the horrible pollution by oil company's .
Good, I never even see deer anymore in south Routt,I did see just one sand hill crane this week ,first time ever,I hope he won't end up in the someones barbque,still cannot believe someone would eat one,unless they were starving.Sorta like eating a hawk or eagle to me.
markhartless is right...Freedom of Speech .All sides should be represented .All of our comments are personal opinions and should be taken as such.Personally I would never vote for someone for that specific reason.In fact a party has to earn my vote.I can go either way.I've been a republican for a long time,but don't like Romney and the attitude of that party about clean air and water issues,they madly favor oil and gas industry at the expense of water ,air wildlife and people.Obama seem's to have learned a thing or two during the Gulf oil disaster and the offshore drilling,these are most pressing to me.Development can happen for oil and gas,but safely with the EPA calling the shot's.It will be two years till the EPA makes the oil industry conform to the better safer drilling practices.What will be destroyed before that happen's?
Thanks for the facts you presented Mr. Gutshenritter.Steamboat Institute accused people like me of being radical left'y's ,actually you talk toxic garbage talk.It's so rude and down right stupid,and immature.They seem like bullies that want to perpetuate ignorance and apathy.Fracking is very bad and you cannot make it all better with a good brainwashing.You should be ashamed of your selves.I'm not against harvesting oil,just tearing up this earth getting it done.Damn sick of being called a radical for it,you all wanting to pollute at any cost , are the radicals.
Be sure to let everyone know how fracking fluid has been dumped into hell creek,next county over, for the last two years ,with the blessing of the oil and gas commission.Seems that you are the one's needing to be educated,not the anti-fracking group.A thank you should go to the commissioners and health department for the monitoring of our county resources,sorry you cannot brainwash us into trusting fracking.There is just too much information to disprove your point of view.We want to keep it clean in Routt County,air surface water and all of the ground water.Oklahoma is not like Routt county.I don't see tourist industry depending on anything there.Just one condo is usally worth as much as 500,000,the amount that the road department stand's to loose being pushed around by state money's being potentially withheld .Many people oppose fracking for very good reason's.
