The Drama that the so called "editorial board" spews in this article should fall on deaf ears. The land in question is NOT being given away! It is simply a transfer from one public trust to another. Regardless of whether it is entrusted to the CNCC or the Fire Department it's still public land.
This bully pulpit that the CDP disguises as an "editorial board" allows a newspaper (which is supposed to be completely Unbiased) to ram it's Opinion down everyones throat (note that 3 of the 5 "contributors" are employees of the CDP). Yes there are those opposed to the training facility, but there are also plenty that are in favor of it. Those that were opposed had the chance to make a difference at the district's recent board election. Blaming the poor turn out on the Fire board is ludicrous! Instead it sounds like sour grapes to me Bryce.
Actually nimrod, this newspaper is a private business and is entitled to its opinion on a variety of issues. If you don't like it, tough. Buy your own newspaper. The Daily Press got it right on this one, and I commend them for showing us what this fire department is all about. Good job CDP.
Finally, something I can agree with from the editorial board.
The Craig Daily Press editorial board is exactly dead on and completely correct in there statements here. Many many people have written and voted in the polls here stating their displeassure with the stupid training tower and the waste of money it will incur.
We can only hope that the CNCC is more honest and able to listen to the people and not give this land away for a useless unneeded, unwanted cause.
I wouldn't blame CNCC for doing this, especially if it presents an opportunity for their students to gain some practical experience. I do agree with the editorial board in how it characterizes the fire board's actions: a "vanity project" without any merit.
I was just informed by Mr. Gene Bilodeau, that the "Moffat County Board of Control", an agency I have never heard of until today, and cannot locate in the counties website directory, is in charge of this land transfer, and that the CNCC has nothing to do with it.
I find humor in the general opinions of the facilities. Both CNCC and the hospital make a big deal about how tobacco use and smoking are not permitted on their property; yet they both support a smoke producing facility in the same location. Can somebody explain that one?
There is no explanation. This is just a bunch of wanna-be politicians wasting money so they can get their names on a plaque. And their cronies will pat them on the back and tell them how wonderful they are. Ego trip, nothing more, nothing less.
CRAIG DAILY PRESS you need to get over your negativeness towards the Fire Dept.
Al Cashion do people go around bad mouthing your business, not that I have heard? If you were any sort of business person you would not bad mouth another business let alone be on this worthless board.
Why don't you small minded people want change in this community?
In the first place the Fire Dept. is not a business. It is a sector of the local government, and it is here to serve the people that live here. The people are not here to serve it!
I have no problem with change as long as the change makes sense and is economically feasible. This ridiculous training tower does not qualiy as either.
People here are growing tired of giving money to the Fire Dept. only to see it wasted on crap like this stupid tower. Especially when one is available for free justa short distance from Craig.
STTAK - Why don't you debate the issues instead of making it personal? If you have a legitimate defense of the Fire Board, and why they don't feel like abiding by the wishes of voters in the community which they support, then we'd all love to hear it.
