Hey stupid, taxes are a "cost" that is recovered by adding it to the cost of the product. ALL taxes that are incurred by manufacturing firms and corporations are passed on to the comsumer of those products. The comsumer essentially inherits them all.
I can remember when all Steamboat had was a rope tow. Later an all day lift ticket there was $3.00, and that was WAY to expensive for us. 57 Chevy car hoods made the best sleds, especially if you waxed them. Another great sleding area was Knez divide south of the Airport.
xrsareus, my dad gave us an innertube from a grader tire. We put ropes around it at intervals so that when inflated you had sort of a bull riders grip on it. Six of us then straddled it and rode down that hill. At the bottom there was a huge bump/jump that usually threw us all off. It was quite awesome untill we got off course and encountered the barbwire fence that pretty much ruined the tube. We also would go out on Jackrabbit, wrap plastic bags over our snow boots, and then hold on to a rope tied to the bumber of the vehicle. Those were some fun times. Bigrred I remember those rope tows, Chris and Kim Steele introduced us to them.
bigred I think you're right and yes I do remember when she fell off the stage, most of us laughed about it. I also remember Mr. Pletcher bringing his wife to school, I was ALWAYS in trouble with him. I also remember Ilean Burton telling Mrs Kincheloe to "cram it" when she wanted us to jump rope for the 5th consecutive day for PE. She was probably the most inept teacher I had K-12.
Grannyrett, does that mean you had Mrs Bright for 4th, Kinchelo for 5th, and Pletcher for 6th? Remember the Battle ax Mrs Gibson for band? She was the epitome of witch Hilda.
There was no foot bridge above the pipes, we just used the pipes. Also remember the spring ice jams because of those pipes. East Elementary opened when I was in third grade with Mrs. Swanson. Prior to that there was only Yampa elementary and Sunset elementary. Remember the awesome sleding hill called Campbells hill over the top of Legion. It was named that because a family named Campbell lived at the bottom (one of the Campbell girls used to sell waxed crepe paper flowers she made door to door). It was a short hike from there over to the sandrock cave.
Wow xrsareus, I'll bet you even remember Hesteds, and Ben Franklins. I very fondly remember the games of "come through" that we used to play on the rink, and yes ice skating all the way to the river was great fun in 21 below zero weather. The nice thing about winter was that it provided a short cut in the walk to East Elementary as that foot bridge didn't exist back then. Crossing the creek on those pipes would on occasion result in a dip in the creek. 3 Blocks east would put you on Legion?
xrsareus, I plead the 5th, suffice it to say we put on our ice skates at home and skated over to the ice skating rink in the winter.
xrsareus, it wasn't necessarily "free for them". The kids that lived next to the park would often raid their coolers, especially if they had beer in them.
How many innings did it take them to get those trophies?
