Rick, Those circles are from the sprinklers. It show's some are working pretty good, most are not. Since they get their water from the pond, my guess is they need cleaned. Probably full of sediment and moss in their strainer's. Producing poor spray patterns. Nothing to do with mowing.

Doug Slaight 5 months, 3 weeks ago on Moffat County reaches agreement with feds over Swinging Bridge

Dave you missed one important point and date. The bridge was upgraded and re-opened in Oct. 2010 after being closed for around a year. If you go from your date of Sept. 22, 2014, the bridge only lasted 4 years before Tipton say's “No matter what we do, there's a misperception in the public about what that bridge will hold,” Tipton said. “You’ll never be able to get more than a pickup truck across it if it’s used right.” For as much money that was spent for the increased weight limit, upgrade and repairs, I would hope it would have lasted more than 4 year's. http://www.craigdailypress.com/news/2...

Doug Slaight 10 months ago on Dave DeRose: Thank a snow plower

I also agree with Dave. City crews have done an excellent job. Not only the streets but also the alleys which in my case, is used daily. Would have become impassible without the extra effort. Thanks

Doug Slaight 4 years, 5 months ago on Craig Fire Board hosting special meeting tonight

Dave, I don't know why the board is not looking at other land. I don't think there has been a meeting since the college deal failed. That is a good question. Maybe they still will. I guess you will just have to call a board member and ask or attend a meeting and ask "why". I think east of Ranney and South of First St. is what I would call and ideal place. I know I have visited about 20 fire training facilitys around the country and there are lots of them in residentual areas.

Dave, If you follow this link, http://www.rawlins-wyoming.com/facilities.aspx?search=1&CID=2&RID=5&Page=detail
This is Rawlins Wy. fire training building. I think it is close to what is proposed for Craig. If you click on the Google map and go to street view you can see how their building is in the middle of a residential area. Looks like about 10 multi story apartments right across the street and numerous houses and a trailer park across the street on three sides. Now, I also would like to see CRFPD be able to build somewhere else but in my opinion I don't see many problems with the proposed location. I guess we will all wait and see. As for wind.... We all know Rawlins never gets any wind.

Doug Slaight 4 years, 6 months ago on Letter: Sandhill Crane conservation

rwarner2012, I think you are confusing the Whooping Crane and the Sandhill. The Whooping Crane (Grus americana), the tallest North American bird, is an endangered crane species named for its whooping sound. I think because of the Whooping Crane nesting is why they close California Park until July. Not the Sandhill.

highway1340, The paper say's only 86 total voters. Pretty sad. Don't know how many voters in the Fire District but it has to be way over 5,000. Lot's of bitching on the forum about wanting change . Looks like it was all talk. Congat's to Byron and Allen.

Doug Slaight 4 years, 7 months ago on Editorial: Fire district violated public trust

Taxpayer, I tried to explain to you I retired in 2005 and told you I did not have a clue to your answer. I suggested you contact the fire station for your answer and then you could post it for everyone to see. What was so hard about that to understand? I tried to help you get the answers you wanted by giving you a phone number. Sorry I got into your personal life.
