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.

Sam Relaford 2 years, 8 months ago on Letter: Editorial board got it wrong

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!!

Good job Tom George! We need more citizens like you around who are not afraid to become involved in the safety of your community! I hope the city recognizes you for what you did to help catch this loser! Maybe a paid vacation to some place warm huh?

Sam Relaford 2 years, 8 months ago on Editorial: Fire district violated public trust

I completely agree with the editorial board! I wish someone could file a suit to make them uphold the vote we had in 2002. Although it sound like they had already made up their mind what they were going to do wether they lost the vote or not. Obviously I am no Lawyer, but I'm pretty sure there is some kind of law or rule about lying to the public just to get a vote. Doesn't it make the whole ballot invalid? So I say if they build it then let them. We as a community can vote to cut their budget and make it so tight they wont be able to use that money pit.Then remove every member of the fire district board from office because we obviously cant trust them anymore! We need honest, trustworthy people in these positions. People who respect what the people want and need!

They said when they brought Manning in that it would bring the Broncos to a hire playing level. They even said it would effect the states economy. If any one man can effect the entire states economy maybe he should run for president! The one thing Tebo did was make football fun to watch again. He always had a smile and treated everybody the way he would like to be treated. He brought his Christianity up front and showed all the fans that you can be a religious person and not have to hide so you dont offend any person who finds religion offensive. And even though there are better quarterbacks in the NFL or the AFL, Tebo was really doing a great job improving his game. I bet he could had had a Superbowl Championship in as little as two years. I wonder if Elway may have had a little jealousy and was afraid Tebo may have been better than he was?? Who knows.... On a side note, Manning had a broken neck all last season. Is he ready to take all the punishment those big linebackers will dish out to him?? I mean the 1965 Chevy Camaro was an awesome car...in 1965. I wouldnt put it up against a 2012 Camaro. If you get my drift.

Sam Relaford 2 years, 9 months ago on Do you support the Craig Rural Fire Protection District’s plan to build a live fire simulator for training near The Memorial Hospital and Colorado Northwestern Community College in Craig?

I thought I read an article where they wanted to build a fire sub-station out there?? I would be more apt to go along with that because more people are moving out to the west side of town. But I really dont think we need a fire training tower right here in town. The tower in Hayden is only 30 minutes away. It would make more sense to go ahead and pay Routt county a little when they want to train than spend a million dollars on a building to burn every once in a while. And the smoke and smell from the fires would really be a nousance to the people and patients who are in the vicinity of the tower.

Here's an idea... How about taking that property and building more housing for low income families?! Just sayin....
