“They could say we need an ambulance with a full-time staff in Maybell and Dinosaur and an extra one here in Craig,” Mathers said. “If they recommend it to us and we don’t do it and we have some major catastrophe, how do we deal with that?

So Tom and Tom are afraid of hearing information that may prevent a catastrophe? I don't understand it, They want to not hear info so they can cover their butts if a hypothetical scenario might occur? It makes no sense.

City of Hamilton? City of Maybell? It's a bit difficult for a County Government to have relations with non-existing governmental entities. Hamilton and Maybell aren't incorporated areas, meaning they ain't cities, towns or villages. They have post offices, community groups, etc, but they don't have a formal governmental structure.

I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that Terry bought the store and I know that Marilynn will do a fine job. I look forward to seeing the store a bustling community "hot-spot" like it was before.

Interesting that the county signed a lease agreement with Gulfport Energy yesterday. Word is that they are the project proponent of this whole seismic project

Also, where is the news that Maes improperly reimbursed himself $40,000 for mileage costs and was fined $17,500? Or the fact that he touts himself as a successful businessman yet made $11,000 last year? The voters want to know facts, not stump speeches.

Yeah, yeah, Ritter killed the oil and gas industry. That would be true if not for the fact that more wells are being drilled in CO than any other Rocky Mountain state and the industry, itself disagreeing with that notion.

"the new regulations came at a time when the worst recession hit the nation. Plummeting natural gas prices nationwide and a lack of transmission lines to ship Colorado gas to markets elsewhere in the nation had far more to do with a slowdown in drilling than the new rules" -said by Al Williams, VP Williams Energy

Sage_Sam 4 years, 1 month ago on Tami Barnes running for Moffat County Commission

“If I had it my way, we’d go back to the 1800s when you knew where you stood,” she said.

Well, she would certainly know where she stood back then, and it likely wouldn't be in a line to vote. Wyoming was the first state to give women the right to vote in 1869, Colorado followed 14 years later and the 19th Amendment wasn't ratified until 1920.

Also, politicians calling on American's to take greater ownership in their government and work harder at providing for the collective good isn't something new. A fella said it best in 1961 with:

"And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

Sage_Sam 4 years, 4 months ago on Future of Russell Street building remains unknown

I think the point is that they aren't dumping money on the old hospital, its already paid for.

Samantha Johnston, TMH’s chief of organizational excellence, said the move is ideal for the hospital.

“It makes sense for us to consolidate into a building that is already paid for and available,” she said.

Therefore, in hindsight it seems that they have made a pretty good financial decision to have not purchased the 6th Street Clinic.
