I agree with the above posters and would not support a change in the policy. My kid goes out, in fact insists on it, even when it is colder than 10 degrees. As long as she has the proper attire on, it's not a problem.
I wonder how long the author of the letter has lived in Craig? SoCal transplant maybe?
Heck, I'll wear shorts until it goes below 0, I hate pants.
Thank you for your efforts wellwell.
My offer still stands if needed.
I live on the opposite end of town from this mess and have nothing to do with it other than offering to clean it up.
My apologies to als362 for coming off harsh, just annoyed someone would think like that.
You obviously have no clue what this discussion is about als362, please read the letter to the editor and the following posts before commenting. People are willing to take the time to make it right and you come on and berate the effort, classic.
All I did was offer my help, it's not my mess but if I am going to help pick it up, I am not going to pay to dump it. Why should I?
With that type of outlook it will stay there until it is scattered all over the place making north Yampa that much more appealing...not!!
I have seen this mess as well and am ashamed that travelers have to see it when arriving from the north. North Yampa has actually improved "slightly" over the years I have lived here, there was a time it looked much worse. The small park and the houses along the east side(as mentioned) aren't bad and have added to the improved look. It still needs major work but sit back and look at every entrance to this town. They all could use some spiffing up, north Yampa is not the only one.
I'd be happy to help clean it up, however, I would want free access to the dump and I don't want some neighbor or homeowner calling the police to have me arrested for trespassing or theft. Somehow the city would have to get involved, clean it up themselves or let us do it with those two conditions.
I have a truck, if my two conditions are met I will help provided it is done when I am not working.
Thank you for a very well thought out, sensible post. I wish everyone would think like that but it won't happen here.
Play them all and stop being so biased.
OK, apology accepted and I am sorry about the whacko comment. My biggest pet peeve about these forums are people who think they know you when in reality they have no clue whatsoever. I get pretty steamed about it and tend to lash out when I should just shrug it off. Has something to do with the anonymous thing I guess.
Funny thing is that the whole post hit pretty close to home, you are 75% right on, not about me but someone else.
Have a great day yourself.
"david moore ???? i know about david but moore is fiction i believe…quit scratching notes on here you hear at the emergency room,,,we would prefer you do your job and take care of the patients instead ??????"
Great, another whacko who thinks they know me.
What business is it of yours what I do in my own home on my own time?
You obviously have no clue who I am or what I do...can't even get the job right. Emergency room...hah!!!
My final post on this issue is this: I have no clue why the CDP will not post the name of the accused but it is their policy not to do so, my presumption was the protection of the innocent, however, that is obviously not as important as people desperately needing to know who dunnit. We do not own the paper, therefore we do not make the rules regarding how they publish it and we do not have the power to change those rules . I will have to just live with that fact, I don't understand why everyone else can't.
I don't know what you are protecting, he's in jail!!! What are you so worried about?
I am not a proponent of secretiveness but in a town this size where people know everything about everyone, it is important to keep some things under wraps until the proper time comes to reveal it. Finger pointing, whispering and staring at victims is not right no matter what your "convoluted" reasoning tell you. I, you, nor anyone else need fear this creep because he is behind bars.
"The American Criminal Justice System does not work in secret, or behind closed doors, unless the accused perp is a minor. Of course, the identity of a minor victim is always a secret."
That is the biggest laugh of the day, the behind closed doors part that is...what planet are you from?
"What are you going to whine about when the preliminary hearing is public?….. when the jury trial is public and televised?….. when the sentencing hearing is public and televised? Huh? "
I will whine about nothing because this will be the proper time for it all to come out. In the meantime, leave the victims be and let the police do their jobs.
"The only ground that legitimately justifies keeping the accused perp's identity a secret is if disclosure would jeopardize the ongoing investigation. That is the ONLY legitimate ground. All your other gobbly-goop is nonsense."
Gee, do ya think that might be why they are not revealing his name???
"The more a couple of you attempt to hide the information that should be public, the more curious I am to know why. I don't have a dog in the fight. I am just curious about what you are hiding."
I explained in my previous post why, and that is the only "dog in the fight" I have, other than an ongoing investigation.
I have nothing in connection with this jerk-bag and if I caught him messing with my kid there would be no jail, trial or prison(except for my own)...just a funeral.
I also have absolutely nothing to hide so fire away with more of your well thought out assumptions.
Don't worry Harlan, you are not in this by yourself and no apology is necessary.
I am curious as well why RichardBarbosa so vehemently needs to know the name of the accused. What good is knowing that going to do at this point...he's locked up?
He has yet to be proven guilty in a court of law and until that is so, he will be kept from the public therefore keeping the victims identities safe as well. No, I am not related to or friends with the accused, I am just using common sense.
Curiosity seekers, embarrassment and ridicule are not what these families need right at this point, let them have their privacy to deal, heal and help their children regain some form of normalcy once again. Their childhood is over RichardBarbosa, stained by some pervert with a sick mind...you can't tell me you don't realize that the victims would be identified if the perpetrators name was made public? I'm sure the families are well aware they will have to come forward at some point to help put this guy away but for now they need to be left alone, anonymous and free to walk this city without finger pointing, staring and whispers.
You all know the benefits of anonymity right? Give the families the same respect that you demand right here.
Enough people know who this guy is, some have information not privy to the public...yet, so just be patient and it will all come out soon enough, the families will then be heroes and the zero will be gone.
The worry about him being out prowling around is mute as he is locked up and will not be able to afford bail, you even stated that fact in a post above RichardBarbosa:
"He's not going to be strung up on any flagpole. In all likelihood his bail is in excess of $100,000, and he has no one to post the 15% cash, and no one to put up their home as collateral on the balance. He is sitting alone in a cell, because accused child molesters will be gang-raped, sometimes murdered, by their fellow inmates."
So just relax, let the law do it's job and stop wasting so much energy here arguing over something you have no power to change. This guy is going to go away for a long time and hopefully the things you've said about what they do to child molesters in prison is true.
Then justice will truly be served.
