Colorado Springs, CO
I totally agree with batman. If we ever have to bring a stray to the shelter, we actually make the drive to Steamboat Springs, because their shelter is so much better equipped than the one here. This is in no way a reflection of the dedicated, caring staff that work at the shelter either. I just don't think the shelter in Craig is the best place to leave a stray due to the general state of the facilities. They are lacking in space and equipment. The current location is just not ideal and not the best place for the animals, especially cats. I would love to see a shelter in a new location that is more visible and accessible to the public.
The speed limit at that location is 45 mph, and based on the minimum details given, it appears that speed had nothing to do with causing the accident. It seems this was caused by either impatience or inattention on the part of the driver turning left. I will agree that there are a lot of careless drivers in town, but not anymore than other towns across Colorado. I lived in Colorado Springs for years before moving up here and there are some scary drivers down there, and a lot more of them. :)
I personally think a recreation center would better serve this community. As Tom said, our summers here are short, so why not build a facility that could be used year-round? It would also bring people and money into the community. We drive to Meeker to use their rec center and spend our money in Rio Blanco County. I'm sure it would also be a great incentive for prospective businesses or those looking to relocate or open an office in Craig. I know a rec center would have to be paid for through tax dollars, but I believe it would be a great investment for the future of Moffat County.
"My outlook isn't effected by who its commissioners are" is not correct. The word used should be affected, not effected.
For those who are just reading these comments, Wrestlinrockies had left an insulting, hate-filled comment to cach22. I felt the need to stand up to this anonymous bully. Apparently, he couldn't take the heat, so he got out of the kitchen. What a cowardice move.
WrestlinRockies— I've noticed a pattern to your posts. If you don't agree or understand what someone says, you turn to insults. Your response makes no sense at all. The person posting, prior to you, merely stated that Romney never said he would cut teacher jobs. This person never said that he/she wasn't concerned for our children's future or education. I myself disagreed with Ms. Arnett's statements as well, in another post, are you going to verbally insult me? You don't know that person, yet you feel you have the right to call them names and bash them? I did not grow up in this county, but have lived here for over twenty years. I take offense to your words as well. My husband and I are both gainfully employed, college educated members of society. I don't eat at McDonald's, I don't smoke Meth, or any other substance, and I most certainly am not stupid. Ironically your own words show the thoughts of an ignorant, intolerable, and unintelligent person– the very qualities which you so rudely cast upon the citizens of this county.
I totally agree with Ms. Arnett that there needs to be an overhaul of the testing system, however her statement about which candidate for she will vote makes no sense. Obama has been in office for almost four years; why not be upset with him? He had every opportunity to make changes, especially in the first two years, when the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress. I am aware that Colorado is one of ten states to receive waivers for No Child Left Behind, to make reforms at the state level, but her statement that she plans to cast her vote for anyone but Romney means she will vote for Obama. It doesn't matter to me for whom she votes, but neither candidate has an acceptable solution at this point, so why fault one over the over, when the other has had the power to make drastic changes and did not.
I find it funny that you stand by your policy, but you don't apply it across the board. A while back, a Craig police officer was arrested for domestic violence, and in a totally unrelated case from the past, someone accused him of sexual assault. The CDP had no problems plastering his name along with the sexual assault charge against him, in the front page of the paper. I understand that his name was already out there for the DV charge, but why list his name in conjunction for the sex assault accusation. There wasn't even a charge, it was merely an accusation. I find your practices to be very hypocritical. Your explanation of why his name was listed is ridiculous and biased. His name was listed because he happened to serve as a police officer, but at that point he had already been terminated. I have never met the guy, and only knew of the case through the news article, but I found your practices to be unfair. If you are going to have a policy then you need to apply it across the board, and not pick and choose to whom it applies.
jammer-- Who is or is not a Romney fan was not the point of the conversation in the first place. I just want to know why people who don't support Obama get attacked for their views. The original article had to do with the competency and accuracy of a Denver Post reporter, and ended up with rudeness and insults towards those that happen to not be Obama supporters. To answer your question-- I am a Romney fan--as are many others, and I am proud to cast my vote for him in November. I can only HOPE that in November we get someone in the White House that really can bring about CHANGE, because we can't afford four more years of broken promises.
WrestlinRockies - You obviously are not a Romney fan. Regardless, the reason for the criticism was not that she is Republican or Democrat, it's that her writing contains factual errors. Everyone knows the Denver Post slants liberally, along with most of the mainstream media. If Ms. Burnett is going to report the news, then she should stick to the facts and not let her personal political bias skew her writing. I think Mr. Lathrop's original reason for writing was in reference to Ms. Burnett's printing incorrect information, and now he's being attacked because of his political views. Everyone has a right to their own opinion, and I have no issue with people who have different beliefs than myself. That's what makes this country great. We can agree to disagree and make our voices heard at the polls. I wish the CDP would adopt the same policy as the Pilot, and not allow comments unless you list your name. If you are going to criticize others, why not stand behind your words with your real name, instead of hiding behind an anonymous moniker?
