This is just like giving bicycles to kids that attend bible schools during the summer. Bribe them with a material object to entice them into joining the flock

It is hard for me to understand why this is such an issue. Law enforcement practices discretion every day. When an offender gets pulled over for some sort of traffic violation it is often the officers discretion that determines whether the person is ticketed or given a warning. Roadside evaluations are the officers discretion as well. I myself have been given roadside tests after have a couple beers and the officer let me go because he determined I was not impaired although he knew I had been drinking. The same could be said for drug related offences as well. If a person were to have some small personal amount of an illegal substance, many times an officer may choose to warn the offender or confiscate the substance and send the person on their way. I agree that our law enforcement officials should make the proper decisions when it comes to the new sales that would violate this law but as far as everyday citizens acting in a reasonable manner then I believe this is the right choice for our elected officials to make.

Did this kid think that's how we all dress around here? The spurs with his costume is a really nice touch. I'm willing to bet the horse managed to realize that most bandits flee town after the big heist.

Parking and snow removal are certainly issues on Yampa Ave., although Ron Schaffer seems to have no problem at all keeping his sidewalks and curbs clear of snow and ice. It is not his responsibility to clear the curbs and gutters in front of and around his business but he takes on the responsibility. If other business owners accepted the same responsibility in front of and around their own locations then discussing the matter with road & bridge would not be necessary and the appearance of Yampa Ave. would be greatly improved. I've been into all of the stores on Yampa at one point or another and none of them have been so busy that the employees or owners couldn't spare a little time for snow removal and sweeping. Diagonal parking seems like a good idea on Yampa and could probably work. It is a wide street and without any snow accumulation in the way would provide an ample amout of space for this type of parking arrangement.As far as directing people into downtown, that begins well before many travelers even come close to Yampa Ave. A good example of this would be the signs at the north and east borders of Craig directing traffic to either traverse first street or the by-pass in order to get to Woodbury Park and Loudy-Simpson Park. When people take these routes they are completely missing Yampa Ave. and exposed to a very dismal representation of what our town acutally consists of.

It is incredibly unfortunate that some people have trouble with either drugs or alcohol and it leads them into making bad decisions. For many of the people that do experience these struggles it is often a very drastic incident that opens their eyes to the fact that changes need to be made. For this particular person it seems as though this has been her wake up call. It is never too late to begin changing one's life and habits and it is never too late to start making the correct choices. I wish good luck to this young woman.

It didn't really have much inpact in my opinion. It seems like people were overserved so there was not much regulation and I saw plenty of people with flasks and bottles that made it past the gates. Instead of these people enjoying beer, they were fueled on liquor.

Could it be that the city perpetuates the problem by plowing snow back on to freshly shoveled sidewalks?

Through all this debating and committee forming has anyone thought about asking the local deer population what their opinion is? We should truly have all sides represented in such an important issue.
