Thanks also Brent Curtice for showing us that a good portion of our district officials also need replacing due to extreme lack in judgement. A position as important as this and you actually think one of your “finalists” is the person that will help elevate Moffat County athletics. Any one of these candidates will likely do a better job than the previous person but we don't want just better….we want a leader who will help guide our athletic programs to greatness. You don't hire people with mediocre track records at failing schools and bartenders if you truly want to get your programs to the next level. Your choice of candidates shows laziness on the part of school officials Brent! Do your job and go find good candidates! Your decision here has the potential here to either set the stage for years to come or set us back years when you realize later that these candidates don't have what it takes to help lead our athletic departments.

So let me get this straight……we have three “finalists” for the Athletic Director position and they are two AD's from schools with horrible athletic programs and a liquor store manager ….. and this is the best we can get?
Once again our school board is proving to the community how inept they can be. Come on SB you have a chance to create something great here, so pull your heads out and put just a little bit of effort into this process and get to work finding a qualified person to fill the job. I call BS on the fact that these candidates are the best we could find.

Patrick,Got ya….misinterpreted your comment. I'm glad to see we're on the same page. I agree that we need new blood in both the high school administration and the school board. The laziness behind our athletic director has been alleviated but that is just the tip of the iceberg. I too am looking at running for the school board this fall and I hope if we get new blood that it won't be just to continue to accept the excuses and the status quo …..best of luck!
Mountup….I”m sure Pat is not advocating reducing standards, he's just asking tough questions that no one else is asking. “WHY?” is the necessary thing to ask many many times before you should settle on the answer as being valid.

Nowhere does it say the federal gov can't regulate arms either. Gun regulations have been around for over a hundred years. Example- You have always had to relinquish you firearms before you enter the White House….how come no one is upset about your second amendment right being violated there? I believe in the constitution and our liberties 100%, but what I don't support is lack of common sense.
I love that this Craig ordinance to own I firearm was brought up as a response to other absurd anti-gun laws, but it needs to be accepted in the manner and spirit it was presented and not have people take it literal and write a letter about a city councilman's comment, while not accurate was not inaccurate either since the AK-47 does in fact fit the criteria of the gone proposed in the ordinance.

Kelley…..the bi-partisan extreme politics of Democrats and Republicans with political and personal agendas is what got this whole country into the problem it's in. Watching CNN and Fox News has turned into a circus. If one party made the statement that the “sky was blue” the other party would have to comment how they were wrong and how it was “azure” and how the other's comment was unpatriotic and perverting the truth. We'd devote three days to the argument and it would come up in the next presidential election.
Three points to make here:
1) Extreme gun control is wrong. Sure the founding fathers never envisioned semi-automatic weapons but they didn't envision the Internet and masmedia, but that doesn't mean we take away the first amendment. 2) Extreme pro-gun owner rights is also wrong. Mandating all gun owners take safety and handling courses as well as registering of fire arms is not crazy. We make everyone register everything else in this country….alcahol, tobacco, cars, etc….sure it won't stop people from breaking the law who want to break the law but its a good starting point to enforcing the law. We have laws against killing people but just because a criminal is going to do it if they want to doesn't mean we throw the baby out with the bath water and get rid of the law. 3) If I was running for any office I wouldn't want anyone without a shred of common sense voting for me so I'm sure Don won't miss your vote either ….

1) Patrick that is just retarded! Lets just get rid of high school all together and just have an equivalent exam. Wait…that already have that, it's called a GED. It's for kids who can't make it through high school and meet the minimum requirements that the US and its States have established to get out of high school that are a JOKE compared to the rest of the world.2) The lazy and complacent attitude of students is reflective of the Leadership. It's time for Schnellinger to go! He's a bad administrator and under his leadership MCHS is at the bottom of one of the worst States in America.3) Parents of these geniuses who can't get out of bed and get to school are just as much to blame. Too many of our youth's parents in this region are lazy, uninvolved and ignorant to what their kids are doing.

This is a retarded question. What does cooking outdoors in a contained area with profession equipement have anything to do with a fire ban? Better shut down all the restaurants aswell if you're going to use that logic. I'm even more amazed that 20% of the people voted “Yes”.

Like I'm going to buy a subscriptioin to CDP so I can read the full story on-line. This is too funny. I can get a subscription to all kinds of stuff for less than what the CDP wants for a year.

You make some good arguments, but spend just five or ten minutes talking to the people that leave TMH and you will find that its not the town, its not the location, its not the hours or the work load. Spend five minutes with anyone who has left voluntarily or been fired and you'll find out quickly who the problem is. Market share means nothing if you devalue the people who work for you or that you serve. Market share based on inpatient discharges is actually not a good indicator of hospital performance because hospital services are becoming more and more an outpatient business. Primary care doctros, outpatient surgeries, labs, and radiology make up a larger and larger portion of hospital business every year. The fact that TMH is keeping more patients that come into the ER instead of transfering them does not show that people are choosing TMH over the competition it just means TMH is keeping them when quite possibly they should be shipped out. Does that equate to better care or better patient safety? Only a more indepth study of patient outcomes would answer that question. But basing overall performance based on inpatient discharges isn't anything to get excited about. I find it hard to believe that TMH is winning people back when YVMC has their largest presence in Craig than they've ever had before. I constantly hear people (more so now than ever before) say they go to Steamboat for care. Yes they may use the ER here in times of emergencies, but that has more to do with the great staff in the ER and drive time than it does anything else. I am sure many of those ER visits turn into inpatient stays but that has more to do with logistics than patients choosing to use TMH for that type of care.
Simply put running a hospital is more than just good business decisions. When the person you've been seeing for for care for four or five years leaves because the hospital is being run poorly, every one of those patients know exactly why. When the person you are getting your Mamo-gram from for the last decade is let go for phelonious reasons and you have to go to some guy who's just there temporarily, you know the reason why, and when your OBGYN leaves because of poor leadership and dwindeling physician relationships, the patients know why. Providing good healthcare is much more than just making good business decisions on paper, its about caring, and compassion, and consistancy. The hospital disregards their doctors and medical staff because they feel they can and the only thing that can change that is a change in leadership.

So roughly 160 people exercised their right to vote during this special district election? And the vast majority for the existing board members? Wow!!! From the way people commented online you would have though that there would be 1000 people coming out to vote against the encumbents……..Looks like not that many people were upset with the fire district building a new training station.
or see results without voting.
