Just for the record. We do skin cancer lesion excisions along with other cancer lesion removals. TMH also does total knee replacements along with total hip, bipolar hip and shoulder replacement or shoulder resurfacing. We are one of a few facilities (5 surgeons nationwide the last time I checked)that are pioneering the BioMet Signature series knee replacement, which is basically a custom made, patient specific knee implant. It's revolutionary and those of us who aid, nurse and assist the surgeon doing this are extremely proud to be part of such a new technology.Most would be surprised at what we are capable of with our lineup of talented, dedicated surgeons, this community should feel lucky to have them.

I don't know the answer to your question Patrick, but when I heard of what happened that fateful night, I wondered a lot of the same things you did. If I had been sitting in that theater with my 11 year old, I would have given my own life to protect hers without hesitation. Nobody knows how it would have turned out if someone was carrying, maybe they would have slowed him down, or better yet, stopped him altogether. On the other hand, unless properly trained, some may have been killed by the hands of the savior with a concealed weapon, which would have only made matters worse. A night of joy, family, friendship, relaxation and the suspense of how a new movie was going to pan out instead turned into sheer panic, pandemonium and terror. Nobody was prepared, not in the least, and with so many people fleeing and scattered about, someone else shooting in the dark was the last thing that they needed. The only hope that someone carrying a gun would have been effective would have been someone very close, perhaps someone he had already unknowingly passed who then could have precisely taken a proper shot. He was not wearing body armor, as so many have been led to believe, he was wearing a tactical vest, which is merely storage for more death.I will be the first to admit that I do not know what I would do when faced with the moment of truth, I think I know, but I just am not sure until it happens, God forbid.I am not a gun nut, a killer nor a member of the NRA, but I am armed and will do what it takes to protect myself, my child and my property. I am not in the life taking business by a long-shot, but I will defend my girl and my home if an intruder decides to be stupid enough to enter. On that same note, I am not going to go out and buy a gun, take a CCW class and tote it around because of some random lunatic. Just today I was in a restaurant in Utah and saw a man carrying a semi-auto on his hip, he was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. I am slightly unnerved by this, but I accepted it and thought he may have been an off duty cop, who knows. I just don't like public displays of weapons unless a badge is on your shirt, even then…… Random acts by crazy idiots are just that, random. 99% of the public are trustworthy and not going to go on some rampage killing spree just for the sheer thrill of killing, that thought is what gets me through.Your posts were not offensive, at least to me.Just my 2 cents.

No tantrum throwing here, the CDP is not worth a good tantrum. All I have tried to do over the years is make some sense when others don't, and to get a point across, Its called an opinion, look it up in that precious dictionary of yours. My advice is to skip over my comments if you don't like them.Realistically, I have been a part of the Steamboat Today forum for many years under several names, not just recently. One whole comment so far, whoa, better slow down the socializing on that one I guess.My point has been made, I am sticking to it.

Answer to your question, I am a board certified Surgical Assistant by trade, and I do more work for free than I get paid for. As an employee of the hospital, I get paid an hourly wage, however, I work for one surgeon, off the clock, independently, once a week. Some days, more that most, I give all of my product away for free. I do not view local online news as a product when I am bombarded by musical hamburger ads, drop downs or some magic hand moving an ad into my view, or ATV videos that I do not activate, those are what is supposed to pay for the content you are looking at. Because of those online ads and the advertising in the print edition (which are ad nauseum, pun intended) I feel pretty confident those at the paper will have a job tomorrow. They are not firing people because online subscription rates are low. I worked in radio for five years as a young adult, I know firsthand how things in media get paid for. Nobody was paying a subscription to listen to the radio, advertising paid my wage and the astronomical wages of the other employees.If the paper wants to charge its readers to read it, fine and dandy, it's their choice, all I have is an opinion, and a disrespected one at that.I just want them to realize what the consequences are when they take that sort of action, especially when the local news is free from other sources (Today, KRAI, 9News, etc). It is already evident in the discussion boards as the comments have literally stopped cold.

That first line in that last post of mine should read “agrees to endure a slew of advertising”. My apologies to the Harvard grads on that one as I spend more time proofing than getting the thought out. Missed that one.

The only issue here is that the news should be free and that the reader endures agrees to a slew of advertising to get it for free, spelling and grammar issues are a side argument only initiated by those more prefect that the next guy. This is Craig, not Harvard.For the record, I never undervalued any employee at the CDP nor have I ever called this paper a “rag”, it is a valuable TOOL for those living on this end of the valley. However, when this papers sister site, 40 miles east, offers the local news for free, and the local radio station does the same, I have to question the motive.Latest observations….(aside from the swaggering comment I received from our editor at the BBQ last weekend, ((something tells me I was being chastised for speaking my opinion))……comment rate is non existent, literal days between comments and only single comments on each story, nothing heartily discussed here anymore. This thread is the only one I can access without a subscription and even though some of us commentors had our differences, it was a valuable tool to get thoughts out and bring issues to the light.Just for fun (and curiosities sake), I took the front page advice of the Press and tried to access the BBQ and balloon launch on video, which was advertised on the front page of one of last weeks print editions (which I read for free). It said to “go online to see a video of the balloons and the BBQ”. Well, guess what…couldn't access it unless I paid the subscription. Tried from three different computers just to rule out firewalls or some other control as being the problem, it was not, pay or go away. Hmmmm, any comment about that one?Online participation, which does hold value believe it or not, is at rock bottom and there seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. No pay, no access, no discussion…take it or go away seems to be the theme.Perhaps that was part of the master plan, silencing the masses, however, according to our editor, the master plan behind this whole thing was that “nobody gives away their product for free”. With all due respect Mr. Editor, I beg to differ and believe a shoe needs removing. I and several others have proven over and over what products are free, Pandora, krai, kusa, Steamboat Pilot and Today, Google, Firefox and all the cool add ons, 27,900,000 other news sites, yada, yada, yada…even someones leftover BBQ at the Colorado State BBQ Championship can be had….for free. One way or the other I have no choice but to respect your decision, however prepare to suffer losses in the online arena if you continue to charge for it. This is Craig, not Los Angeles or New York. The working man (or woman) wants news, happenings, obits and who gave birth last week without shelling out even more hard earned dollars to get it.Don't deny us that opportunity.

The story pbcint is referring to is on KRAI.com if you want to read about it.

Charging for the print edition is fine, it's the online edition that I have a problem with. Nimrod's right, Pandora….free, I listen to it all the time and love it. I don't mind a few ads because I get it……for free. As annoying as they are, I don't mind the ads on the CDP site because I was always under the impression it is what paid for keeping it free, guess not. Want local news, go to KRAI.com and get it for free……..or listen to it over the radio….for free.It's the advertising that pays for that stuff, not some subscription rate. I typed in “free online newspapers” into Google…..another free service, and got 27,900,000 results, that's alot of free news.The notion that there are no businesses that give their “product” away for free is simply not true.

Exactly what I was getting at, finally some common sense comes out.

Well, say what you want, I still think it is not the right move. My opinion.
