so you guys think it is okay to tell people that they are required to own a fire arm in there homes? I agree with you brittany.. society is going in the toilet. I hope you enjoy the ride. And I will tell you all something, I dont run down to the courthouse every day to read what kind of ordinance is going in front of the board. I only know whats printed in this rag paper. So if I dont know all the detail why dont you talk to the guy who wrote it up. And if all those exemptions are in that thing , then nothing really changes does it? I dont believe anyone should be allowed to propose any ordinance that conflics with anyones right to choose. Tell your daddy that.

I think this is absolutely ridiculous. There are people that do not want guns in there house and some that are against guns all together. Its called freedom of choice! I think that if someone wants a gun then by all means go get one, just be sure to secure it properly. But to force someone to own a gun? Really!? And how many heads of households have felonies? That ordinance would force hundreds of felons to violate the law. I will not go to prison just to follow some ridiculous city ordinance. For crying out loud people...Think about what your saying before you say something to embarass yourselves!


Sam Relaford 1 year, 10 months ago on Fire training facility to be built on site near Kmart

I think a new emercency response center should be built by the hospital. A big building to house a few fire trucks and a ambulance, perhaps a hazmat responce vehicle. It is where 2 highways come together plus the bipass to hwy 13 N. There could be a response several minutes faster from there than in town.

Having the training tower built behind Kmart is better on one hand because it wont be standing out like a sore thumb and wont interfere with the daily activities of the comunity. And it has its short falls such as the smoke David mentioned. However the fire board director stated over and over that the use materials that dont create hazardous or toxic smoke. So I guess pick your evil. I say build it if you absolutely need it. We'll see about the smoke if it happens I guess.

A million dollar bucket truck!! OMG thats a good one. Can I use that one? I agree . They want it right out there so they can say... look what we have! Wait a minute...Do you mean they want to spend a million dollars on a fire truck with a bucket on it?? I missed that one. Lets see, I driver through hayden every day to and from work. On a bad day it takes 25 minutes to get to Craig. The trucks are already here and I have seen it take 30 minutes from Yampa Ave. And for god sake dont call the cops. Last time I did it took 45 minutes for an officer to show up.

They'll shoot themselves in the foot?! C'mon Man... They can still have the courses. It would be detrimental for the fire house not to let them use it. They need to support the community to continue to recieve their funding. If they said, no its my toy and you cant use it, alot of people would be really angry.

So why not build on the south side of town. The fire department still gets their training and we dont have to see that big black mess all the time. Works for me.

I am thinking that the manufacturers of this stuff and the places that sell them should all face criminal charges. Has anyone else seen the stories about those people who were on bath salts? This stuff is worse than heroin!

God Bless the American Vet! They have laid their lives down so we can enjoy the time with our family . I am proud to be a vet and to have served my country! God Bless America!


Sam Relaford 1 year, 11 months ago on Would you be in favor of the Moffat County School District shifting to a year-round school year?

I dont think year round school is a good idea because I think it will interfere with family summer vacations. But i do like the way routt count has school 5 days one week the 4 days the next week.
