Its too bad that there are so few people in agreement on this issue. Ive been against it from the beginning. And Mr Chapman just confirmed my beliefs about the location as well. cforevereyz has a very good point. If you dont think our town is in need of repairs just drive through any street in Craig USA after you've had a major surgery. It doesnt matter what type of vehicle you drive ,it feels like an offroad obsticle course.
I'm not sure this town needs another alcohol eatablishment, but it sure needs the bussiness. I had heard a rumor, and we all know rumors are always correct, that this club was going to be for the hispanics to hang out. Why does it have to be just for them? I hope that if he does get the permit he doesnt allow it to become a big clique hang out.
He may have needed an interpreter I dont know. I never met him. But i think he should re-apply with the application filled out correctly. Then he will get a fair shake like any other person who applies.
I kind of agree with David about the land south of the pool. Either take the offer or sign back the lease. Either way I think the VFW will still come out ahead. There is a million different things they can do to raise money for their organization. Just think out of the box.
It is a shame that the American Legion had to close the pool there. it would be nice to still be able to go there and chillax in the hot tub. OHH YEAAA!!!
I'm glad to hear the hospital was able to come in under their budget to replace the exray equipment. It is very important to stay up to date on that. This is a very important life saving piece of equipment that one should not skimp on. Perhaps they will take the surplus and invest it on some nice estetics for the around this outside of the hospital. Maybe a nice sitting garden with lots of flowers and trees and shrubs. You know the kind with benches and tables for the patients to go and relax while they are healing. A happy place is a healing place.
Do you really believe its the uninsured driving up the cost of healthcare? I dont ! I believe that the cost of health care is on a high speed rollercoaster of uncontrolled greed. I once went to the hospital concerning some very severe pain from my knee. The doc walked in, looked at it for about 1 second. Told me to take some ibuprofin. Then charged me $300 bucks! I couldn't believe it!
My point I guess is this. If the medical proffesional would make their cost affordable for everyone then their bills would be paid in full. There would be less people using the VNA or CIP to get help with their medical needs.AND then the people of this area would be healthier and more likely to get out and be more active.
You know what Doug? Your right! There should be someone there from the paper to record these meetings. Then the people who aren't able to attend and the ones who dont know when these meeting are happening, like me for instance, can stay informed.
Come on daily press! Can you help us out??
Did anyone else know there was even a meeting going on? I never heard about it. I guess I must live under a rock.
You want more people to attend then get the word out when and where you are going to have these public forums. Try radio or maybe an ad in the paper.
Well Saunders! I said we have very good firefighters here in Craig. And dont judge a man before you meet him. Cause I say I'm Thefatguy doesnt mean I am a fat slob that sits around doing nothing.I am actually an Honarably dischargedDeasert Storm Vet that works very hard and pays taxes that support our fire department and police force.
What I am saying is that when the public says no, they mean no. Dont ignore what we say.
And YES I believe they will allow an eyesore to be built in this area. Have you ever seen the training facilities in Hayden or Rangely? Its not pretty no matter how you build it.
The point the editorial boardwas making was that the funding for the training tower was shot down by the public. And the fire district guru decided to spend the money anyway.
Our fire fighters are very good. Nobody ever said they were not. I do think there is no reason why we wouldn't be able to use the facility in hayden or rangely. The cost would be extremely less than a million dollar piece of concrete and steel.
So my point is that there is a certain protocall that must be followed for this sort of thing. The Fire distric is no exception to that.
I love the side notes you put in there. I agree with you. I live on the other side of the sand rocks by Kathy Ceasers, I cant spell it , and it is a great place to go and have fun.
I am disgusted by people who dont give a rats you know what about other paople who use the area for family fun.
Dont let me catch you, who ever you are, dumping up there. Because I will do whatever I have to do to make sure you pay for it!! Jail, fines , law suits! What ever I can think of at the time!!
