Charlene Stees: Bring back whistle
November 2, 2008
Steamboat Springs — We hear we must preserve our Western heritage, so we can’t remodel our homes that are more than 50 years old. But when a newcomer complains about the noon whistle, it can be taken down and not be replaced. The noon whistle, which used to blow at 8 a.m., noon and 5 p.m., is a part of our heritage. It has blown for more than 60 years, so how about putting it back up? I miss hearing it, and I think it should be put back up and allowed to remain a part of our community.
