Once again, don't you have better things to spend your money on Moffat County? And here's an idea, how about asking Moffat County residents what they want? Instead of what the commissioners want. Not that it matters they will do what they want to anyway.
I agree with the previous comment. How about a Rec Center? That would keep a lot of money in the county and would reach a larger group of people than a concert venue would.
One more point. I certainly hope that this trip to Telluride isn't being paid for by the tax payers. But wouldn't surprise me if it was.
Glad to be moving out of this town soon.
This is the absolute most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Are you kidding me Moffat County? Don't you have better things to spend your time and money on? You better be prepared Moffat County residents. It doesn't seem to matter what the tax paying voters want. As history proves, they do what they want anyway.
Anyone know of who to contact about a rec center? Or know who has been involved with it in the past? I know, probably a losing battle. But maybe if we keep trying. It doesn't have to be anything major. Exactly as you said selket42. I really think we would benefit from that greatly.
I agree with all of this. Especially because one of my goals within the next couple of years is to become a local business owner. I also have several friends who are currently or are in the process of becoming local business owners. However, my problem is that some of the local business owners and the community have to do their part to keep the interest of buying local. How about doing some updating to some of the businesses? For example, the movie theater. With the exception of some new to them seats, that place has looked the same since I was a kid and I am sure before that. And they wonder why people go to Steamboat for a movie. Or why not let another theater in? It would be good for competition. The jewelry store downtown, its like a dark dungeon in there. Who wants to even look at jewelry in there, when you can go to Steamboat or Grand Junction and shop in one of their beautifully lit and maintained stores. How about a decent restaurant? We do have a few good ones, don't get me wrong. But the variety isn't here. Again that's why people go to Steamboat or Grand Junction. And just one more and I will get off my soapbox, why, why, doesn't this community want a recreation center? I will never figure this one out. People are spending their money at the one in Meeker when that money could be staying here and it would give our community an option of an indoor activity during the cold winter months. These are just a few examples of where are local money is going instead of staying here the valley. Its really not rocket science. Change is good!
Andy, I agree with you 100% I even wasted the time to read those books, hoping that there might be something good about them....and then nothing. I do have to say one thing though, I did like the movie better than the book, I know rarely the case. But at least in the movie you didn't have to read through chapter after chapter of boring Bella wallowing in her self pitty. They kind of just sped that up in the movie....for good reason!!!
Would definitley NOT re-elect Ritter. I believe that he is a huge contributing factor to the loss of jobs in our state. Especially here on the western slope regarding the oil and gas industry. Maybe before he puts his hippie tree hugging believes into motion, maybe he should think about how it will affect peoples jobs and lives. Thanks Ritter for the loss of many jobs, homes, lifestyles, and self worth. Oh and he is pretty much crazy to think that people in Colorado can afford to pay more for one more thing in the expensive state where the cost of living vs. typical wages is not even comparable. OK sorry I will get off my soap box now.
Just because you hate your job doesn't give you an excuse to treat your customers the way your managers treat you. Your patients are paying hard earned money to be there and probably obviously don't want to be there. The least you can do is treat them kindly and remember that you can make a bad experience of having to be in the hospital, a better one. THAT is your job!!
I know someone who recently had to spend some time there at TMH and everything that went on while this person was there was a joke. First off this person had an infection that was obviously getting worse rapidly. They loaded him up on medication and anitbiotics for the first three days not even knowing what it was. And then on the the THIRD day finally took a culture and sent it off for a biopsy, and it took 3 more days to get results back. In the meantime, switched his doctor 3 times, put an obnoxious person in the room with him over night, among the snottiness of staff towards his family while they were there, sorry that we were in the way. He was finally released a week later,still not really knowing what it was and no sign of healing. Now its been a month later and just a little progress. He was supposed to go in for a test to be done and was told on the day of that it had to be canceled because his doctor was out of town. Why is it OK to put your patients on the back burner? Anyway he ended up going to the hospital in Steamboat where they took care of him right away and diagnosed him within hours. Its just a well known fact around Craig that you just don't go the TMH unless you have no other choice.
I am sure proud of you brother!!! Glad to have you home!!
I didn't attend the concert, however I've heard nothing but good things about it. It's about time the Craig do something like this. And they should keep it up. The citizens of Craig deserve to have something to do more than just once a year at the widdle the wood thing. While your at it bring Grand Old West days back to life. It used to be great. Not only that it brings visitors the area that wouldn't normally have come to Craig. More visitors, means more money, and who doesn't like that!!!
OK so I lived in Craig for most of my life. And it doesn't take a genius to figure out who the people are that are using and selling the drugs. Its pretty much the same people that are doing it now that were doing it when I was in highschool. And that was over 10 years ago. So what is the problem???? Why can't these people just be taken care of?? As long as these people are on the streets they will continue to bring the community down with their selling, using and bringing in more drug users to the town because hey your not gonna pay for your crimes here in Craig.
