I agree with Harry. Tonly simply suggested that his Brother-in-Law had an expertise in this area and it might be worth a phone call. Just the same as I would recommend a plumber or electrician. There is no intended conflict of interest and if the City Manager had brought several qualified candidates to the City Council and they had chosen Tony's Brother-in-law as the most qualified candidate then I would have been fine with that outcome.
Perfectly on point! Any City manager or Association manager should simply be a facilitator and bring issues of this type to the decision makers. How obvious was it that this decision could end up in controversy. The sad part is that Tony's brother-in-law might very well be the perfect person for this effort.
Hiring Dave was the best thing that could ever have happened for YVRA. With Dave's leadership and understanding of the Federal mandates and requirements Yampa Valley Regional Airport has become a model of efficiency for other rural airports. Add that to Dave being a genuinely great person and you will understand how greatly he will be missed. All the best to you and your family and thanks for everything that you have done.
Congratulations to you both! Its comforting to know that we, as fellow human beings, are beginning to do the right things.
I totally agree with Mr. Ford. It is obvious to me that whomever wrote this editorial has not been in town for any length of time. What great improvements we have made in the past 10 years in the downtown corridor and all without an additional tax.
Cresean, yes from 30 years ago the men to women ratio has evened out a bit. As we like to say "the odds are good but the goods are odd".
I have to agree with most of what Scott Says, however, there is NEVER an excuse to be rude. shame on the bike rider for not being more courteous. I would suspect that he is equally as rude in most other aspects of his life and certainly not reflective of the general Steamboat community.
Terri, Welcome to Steamboat! I suspect that the bike rider was not a local and if so, shame on him. Because so many of us are in the service industry we have a different perspective on how to treat people. We often see bad examples of human behavior and understand that we don't want to be seen in this light. We are generally a friendly helpful bunch that has adopted the ranching heritage of assisting ones fellow man. Please don't judge the whole by the few bad apples.
Run Mamba Run!!!
You know you have a cousin who is a Sports Psychologist that can help you get back in the saddle again. I hear that margaritas help also. Perhaps a combination of the two?
Sorry but I have to agree with Jack. The biggest issue is that the vast majority of bike riders do not adhere to the rules of traffic. They disregard traffic lights and stop signs, ride in the opposite direction of traffic, do not use signals, cut through parking lots,do not have adequate lighting at night and dart in and out of traffic whenever it is convenient for them. It is true that on the core trail they may have to be a little more observant of pedestrians, dog walkers, tubers and fishermen but they need to be respectful of those equally qualified users. Just as they should be respectful of the rules of the road.
Robin, I would love to have the ability to ride my bike more to and from work. However when a client walks into our office and wants to go view a property now it is not convenient to strap him and his family to the handlebars and ride up to Storm Meadows.
I am certainly not against bike riders but they need to have and show more respect for the rules of traffic as well as other modes of transportation.
As usual there is a lot of misinformation floating around. The incident at the Concert was not as reported by Jerry. I was the first person that the little girl ran to and immediately looked for the dog. It was nicely leashed and tied to the base of a ski jump over 100 feet from the concert venue. It was lying down and not roaming free. This was a case of unsupervised children outside of the fenced concert area and not one of an out of control dog.
Jenette, I appreciate your concern however we should have more and not less dog off leash areas. We have walked Spring Creek over the past 24 years on a nearly daily basis with our dogs off leash and have NEVER encountered any issues with all of the other off leash dogs. Generally the dogs on leash tend to be the more aggressive. The vast majority of the dog owners clean up after their dogs and we always carry spare bags for those that don't. We have encountered lot of wildlife without incident including Bear, Moose and Mountain Lion. The only issues that we do have are the bikers who travel much too fast for the amount of foot traffic and the city trucks that come up to empty the trash that also drive much too fast.
