I have a feeling this will not go very far in the legal system. YVEA did its part in notifying its customers of its intentions, mainly via the Steamboat Today article I linked in my above post, the November 2015 newsletter that EVERY customer gets and which I have linked below, (refer to page 7's story "Rounding up pennies makes a lot of Cents),
and the website referenced in the article above, however I cannot find a link to a story in the Craig paper, which puzzles me. Why? Still not an excuse for not knowing.
And saying it was "not your responsibility to know" ....WHAT?? It is our responsibility to know, it is our responsibility to keep up and inform ourselves on the current happenings within our local, state, national and global infrastructure....mercy, do some live under rocks?
I knew about it because I read the article in the monthly newsletter, which prompted me to OPT OUT of the program. I read stuff.....I don't just hit "agree" without reading the fine print when paying a bill, or buying an I-tune. If I get a newsletter from my electric or gas company, I read it, just to make sure nothing weird is going on. Not doing that, in my respectful opinion, is just plain lazy.
Anyway, that's why I don't think this will go far, YVEA did not deceive anyone, they told all of their customers in the most widespread, efficient, cost-effective way possible, they are not going to send personal e-mails, letters, or call people on the phone, that can be costly, which is why those days are done. But then again, I'm not a lawyer either.
Pay attention to what's going on in your lives people, read those newsletters, this all could have been avoided if people would read them instead of throwing them in the trash. The can at the PO is FULL of them when they come out.
With that, what IS the principle of the issue?
Operation Roundup has changed from an "opt in" to an "opt out" program. If you don't want to contribute a whole $6 a year (the average cost to the customers), just check the box on your bill, it's right below your name and address. If you pay online, it asks you if you want to contribute, at least it did. I have not used that function since January 2016, it may have changed so you may have to opt out of it as well. It asked me for the years I used it if I wanted to participate.
The Steamboat today ran an article,
in November of 2015, why the CDP did not is beyond me. It is also information you can find on the YVEA website, it's all right there.
Did you all expect a personal phone call from them? Some sure seem to be acting like it. If it appeared in a paper 42 miles away, but not in Craigs, who's to blame? Paper? PR from YVEA? Honestly, I simply cannot believe someone is thinking of legal action against them, that's the punch line of this all, right? I am genuinely interested in hearing how this all turns out.
It's called Competition.
Want to keep your business, compete, its the American way. I'd love to buy groceries, gas and beer/wine all the same spot instead of driving all over town making three separate stops. It only makes sense and brings Colorado into the 21st century.
Just like when Wal-Mart was coming to town everyone freaked out. Well, what,10 years later and not much has changed?
That's just Craig tho, not much change.
Grew up on that street, and when I see movies or shows with kids out playing in that tree lined neighborhood, it always brings back those memories.
Thanks for the article, will be entertaining finding out where all the names came from.
WAY TO GO T!!!!
Proud of you.
Way to go Sambu!!!!!
I've seen this kid and his magic firsthand, he's awesome at it. I foresee an America's Got Talent contestant in the making here.
Thanks Allen, instead of maybe shedding some light on it you demean instead.
It was a simple question, just needed a simple answer.
I have seen crossings go UNDER the road, but never over, which is why I am confused how the animals are supposed to get over. I guess if they are spending that much on it they know what they're doing.
As far a dumb animals, one would think that after almost a couple centuries of automotive transportation that they would avoid the loud machines with bright lights on the big black strip. But no, they don't, they just stand there like the dumb animals they are until the big loud semi turns them, their children, and whatever part of the family dumb enough to follow into a magpie smorgasbord. At least they gave us that great saying.
Holy cow stop the presses, throw the baby out with the bath water and wrangle in the moon.
I agree with you Allen.
Did I just say that, yes, I did.
Trump speaks exactly how most of this country feels yet are too afraid to admit and I will vote for him without hesitation.
Short of executing children stealing a candy bar, for once we think alike.
Well, at 90 degrees to the road, I guess they will need some smarts, and yes, I cannot see a way over that contraption. Please, oh forum lord, enlighten me, I have no issues with learning, unlike some.
As far as dumbest animals on the planet, after over 100 plus years of automotive travel over the big black stripe, one would think evolution would teach them not to walk blindly onto it. Even stupid people have learned that.
