Although I agree with the opinion stated, I am a bit dismayed that the powers that be in the cycling world have not done a better job in educating their constituents in safety measures and road etiquette. .
Hey Tom, tell your wife that she is not the only person in Steamboat with a windows phone. By the way, I love mine.
Congratulations and best of luck in all of your pursuits Brian. I am struck by your awareness and appreciation of Steamboat at such a young age. We look forward to the day that you will once again make Steamboat your home. If that day is delayed or perhaps never arrives we trust that you will take the spirit of Steamboat with you wherever you go and help to make this earth a better place. If the rest of this planet were as respectful and friendly as Steamboat we truly would live in a better world.
I have to take issue with Mr. St. Pierre's statement. Competition in the transportation realm can mean less service. currently Go-Alpine is a "regulated monopoly" under the Colorado PUC rules. that requires them to provide all types of transportation to retain that monopoly. Much of that transportation is not profitable. Should they lose that monopoly they will have to only be able to provide the services that are profitable. Whereas Storm Mountain Express has no State authority and can shut down at this time of year since it is not profitable and only provide those services that are profitable.
Joel, you are indeed a local and congratulations. Along with what Jeremy Johnston says being a local is an appreciation of the heritage and the beauty of the valley. Respect of your surroundings and your fellow man and enjoying all that Steamboat has to offer. This is one of the few places on earth where we WANT to live as opposed to NEED to live because of careers, etc. Our glasses always seem to be 3/4 full. You bring all those qualities with you so congrats and don't whup me at trivia night!
I think some of you might be missing Joe's point of not being objectionable to the article but having it on the front page. I just returned from a Real Estate conference in Savannah and one of the speakers on marketing again said that newspapers are a dying breed and not to advertise in them. She sited the number of newspapers that have gone out of business in the United States just in the past two years and the number was staggering. We are fortunate to have a vibrant newspaper that can put out six daily free editions funded by advertisers. Yes the Pilot and Today have to be sensitive to their paying clientele but at the same time have a responsibility to report the news in a fair and balanced procedure. I agree with Melanie's pondering of the positioning of Mr. Douglas's articles but disagree with Joe Cashen that Colorado's voter decision to allow personal marijuana usage will deter tourist and skiers from coming to Steamboat and enjoying everything we have to offer. Everyone in the United States and other parts of the world know about Colorado and Washington States voter decision.
Matt Stensland and Laura Mazade should be congratulated for this simply outstanding article. A multifaceted look at an important and yet oft forgotten piece of our economy. Congrats to the Pilot and Today for this first rate edition.
I agree totally with the editorial that more time should be taken to reach any decision regarding the sale of the current Safety Building but from a different slant. For many years we have had a parking issue downtown and this has been compounded by the new bus lanes which have taken significant parking away from Lincoln Ave. Now add the business growth of the Yampa street corridor and creating a quasi pedestrian area further compounds the parking issue. At some point a parking structure (or structures) will need to be in the conversation for future planning. The space and elevation change at the Safety building would make an ideal two level parking structure that, with some creative landscaping, could offer a non-invasive appearance. The City already owns the land and could bond for the the cost of the structure to be paid by revenues derived from fees charged to use the structure.
Great comments. I also have not decided whether I am for or against the casino project. The one thing I don't want to be is an elitist Steamboatite. If a Casino can help the struggling economies of Hayden and Craig than I am probably in favor
. Again, we are not talking about an MGM grand here. I also know that hotel near the airport would be beneficial for the flight crews that overnight and would alleviate times when the evening flights are cancelled and there are no rooms available in Steamboat.
Thank's so much for adding this new segment to the paper. We are so blessed to have so many fine athletes in our Routt County Schools and it is fun to keep up with their continuing exploits. I wish we would have had this feature years ago. I would be so interested in finding out what many of our former stars are up to now.
