Marilynn Hill 1 year, 9 months ago on Moffat County Commissioner issues letter of apology regarding burn

Apparently Mr. Gray needs a lesson on fire behavior. Doesn't matter what you clear around your incinerator, it is that errant ember that gets away and lands on your neighbors property. Geez! Finally, I don't understand why he was not cited. Was he burning, yes. Did he have a permit, no. Open and shut case.

Marilynn Hill 1 year, 10 months ago on Mitt Romney today in Craig: Obama 'out of excuses'

JD...my point was not questioning the public funds being used, but hey let's do that as well. I was just questioning the limiting of signs the campaign didn't want to be seen. The point is that the event was held in a public park and a dubbed a public gathering, no one, even if you don't like what their signs may say shoud be held back because the campaign staff was uncomfortable with the First Amendment.

I have never been comfortable with the party the Parks & Rec puts on AKA 'Whittle The Woods' especially because it does so little to pay for itself.

Can anyone give me a link(s) to the EPA Administrative rules, White House and Congressional records that show what the current and past POTUS' is/were doing to take away coal jobs?

The political signage on school buses is an interesting question. Depends if they rented the buses or not, but I think that is for transportation only; not posting signs on the buses to support a partisan event.

Would punt that one over to Mathers, Gray or Danner with the MOCO Commissioners office.

Taxpayer funds were going to be used to pay overtime for city employees, at least according to Saturday's CDP and it is a public park and not a private paid event; seems very unfortunate on the Romney staff side to be clueless, but most campaign workers on all sides are clueless about the First Amendment and free speech when it comes to political rallies. Arg!

Wow, a plethora of misspellings in these comments. Great to know correct spelling is not a requirement to graduate in Moffat County. But hey, let them graduate and of course a rowdy celebration is always in order even if you can’t use punctuation properly.

Marilynn Hill 1 year, 10 months ago on Would you be in favor of the Moffat County School District shifting to a year-round school year?

Seems like to me we are forgetting the parent equation here! I keep reading all these stories and comments about kids being passed from one grade to the next without being able to read or write properly. Last time I checked, it is the responsibility of parents to make sure their kids receive the appropriate education; it is their responsibilty for their child to perform at the correct grade level. Come on folks, step up and stop pointing fingers unless you are willing to look in the mirror and point the finger at the person looking back at you first! Yes there are many challenges the schools need to work on, but realistically, the responsibility begins and ends with you and your child.

My kids go to the MOCO schools and both are expected to give their best and I expect the same from their teachers and all understand this simple concept. My kids don't sit in front of a television playing video games, on the computer playing games or sitting watching mindless television for hours. They are rewarded an hour a week of their choice of these types of activities after all their homework is done, chores are done and their grades on a weekly basis stay above the 90% mark. Sports are played and going over to friends houses are allowed if they keep their grades up, same thing with access to cell phones. On the weekends, we play hard and have the time of our lives, but school always comes first, even over chores. Remember, you're the parent, you make the rules and your kids will respect you and appreciate having parameters for them when they get older.

My child took part in the River Watch program this year and loved it. She wanted to be a scientist before the program and participating throughout the year has just cemented that decision for her. Mr. Yoast has a true love for both the sciences and the kids and blends both so beautifully. Truly a fine program led by an outstanding teacher. Thank you Mr. Yoast for all you do!

Marilynn Hill 1 year, 11 months ago on Nightclub hearing postponed: Residents petitioning against Tarango’s opening

Okay, so my comments never appeared, will try this one again; weird because I never attacked anyone like others have in this blog...

What I don't understand about the comments here is that many are up in arms that the establishment is so close to a school and residential area and then promptly forgetting that a liquor store is just on the corner of the Post Office property…let's just shut that down as well. I didn't know that Tarango's Night Club was going to operate during school hours; that is new to me.

From my understanding about the filing for the license, this establishment is for those aged 21 and over. How is the 'policing' of this age limit any different at this location than it would be at anywhere else where liquor is served, including the Popular Bar, etc?

The amigos 'peeing' on any property just made me cringe at the stereotyping. Drunk people no matter what their nationality do stupid and inappropriate things, etc., but if you are going to be drunk you are not going to only do it at one establishment. I have been to Mathers Bar on more than one occasion and saw many drunk people and even was there once when Mr. Mathers himself threw someone out of the bar into the parking lot because they had had one too many and they looked plainly 'white' to me.

Seems like a witch hunt to me and a whole lot of judging going on. Why don't we start policing our own children and teaching them right and wrong instead of shutting down or not even allowing an establishment to open because of what our children might or might not do; it is called self control. Why punish everyone for inability of a few who cannot or choose not to control their alcohol intake?
