Uh,,, I think its good to be proactive in trying to address our parking needs downtown but....how is this supposed to work at times when the rodeo's on? The parking lot by the 9'th street bridge is also packed to the hilt during triple crown (majority of the summer tourist season). I spend allot of time down at howelsen in the Summer season and while there are times when parking is available its is already close to if not at capacity during June, July and August so...not sure how this is supposed to work.

"The New Colossus" is worth reading once in awhile, especially in its entirety. It seems our " 'New' New colossus sounds more like the lines from a Lou Reed(rip) song: "Give me your hungry, your tired your poor I'll piss on 'em Thats what the Statue of Bigotry says Your poor huddled masses, lets club 'em to death And get it over with and just dump 'em on the boulevard".

Enjoyed this article. Maybe Tom could do a regular column interviewing long time locals, detailing the sacrifices they made, hardships they endured, fun things they did etc... I know I always find these kinds of stories interesting. Thanks.

While we're going "tax crazy" here's an idea. How about a tax on ridiculously expensive unnecessary rotary construction projects. a 5% tax on the central park project alone would generate roughly 85 thousand. The money could go towards treatment programs for people with overbearing senses of entitlement. Just a thought...

How about using one of the golf cart type shuttles that they have at the big amusement parks (since we're on our way towards becoming a giant amusement park anyway....but I digress). You could attach a trailer to the fancy golf cart that Main street employees use to get arround in and shuttle people from our "satellite parking lot???" to various locations downtown. You could decorate it to look like a hayride or some western theme. Just an idea.

I'll let you know when I'm done building my anti-drone drone. Its going to be a remote control ground vehicle with a big catapult that launches a weighted net.Should get the deal done without getting anyone arrested. I may decorate it Mad Max style just for fun. Cheers!
