slipknot 3 years, 4 months ago on Bill Snare: Read the fine print

I've read all these comments and it appears to be getting pretty heated and emotional, on both sides. I have my opinions, but unlike JTF, and the rest of y'all I'm going to make one observation, one statement, and then shut up. When I was younger 'adreneline junkies' signed on the line and went to places like Viet Nam, and when that was done, we independently went to places like Angola, Libya, and Yemen, and places in the Philipines, where we could practice our skills. That said, it appears you have 30 or so semi-professional firefighters and no where to play. Everyone is skirting the real issue or just avoiding saying it; will another fire house or station mean that Craig is ready for full time or professional fighters with a real full time 'chief' and administration, instead of 30 part timers or volunteers? You'd need 3 times that many, let's see 3 shifts per week 20 people per shift. Your mill excess will be taken care of in short fashion and jobs created, and public workers unionized, that sounds about right.

slipknot 3 years, 5 months ago on How do you think Craig City Council should proceed following the Moffat County Commission’s midpoint offer of $909,560 for the purchase of the city’s space in the Moffat County Public Safety Center?

I can't resist this. For that much money CPD can have a brandy new shack built for them. With a all new 'cross bar hotel', and all new city offices, all new city facilities, all in one place. Oh whoops what about next year when you have to pay someone to work there... that place is more messed up than 'hogans goat'. Quit fiddling around and get serious about taking care of the people instead of who has more stroke the city or the county. For a million bucks you can build a 'almost as good as what you got' building that you don't have to share. But wasn't that the original idea, to share space and keep costs down for all involved, oh oh oh and don't forget the centralized communications center for the western slope (I think that's what the idea was) CSP, MCSO, CPD etc...I'm sorry, when I see people as blessed as we are squabbling over such minor crap and then see the great tragedy in Japan, where I spent some time in training in the late 1960's in a place called the Northern Training Area or NTA as the USMC called it. It don't exist anymore, it was deactivated I understand, and just as well, it was washed away along with the poor people who reclaimed it. You need to get it together and thank whatever Providence you believe in that you even have the opportunity to argue about it

slipknot 3 years, 6 months ago on Oil company planning to drill exploratory wells in Moffat County

The Sky is falling The Sky is falling. If I read this right they (Shell E&P) plan on drilling in and around Hamilton, where there are already existing wells, and from former experience, there already exists producing wells between Hamilton and Steamboat, on Forest Service property, more than 50 miles from Craig. You all are gritching now, but wait until the money starts coming in and you'll change your story. Hopefully you'll be wiser than the town south of you and make better decisions with the bounty you have been given

slipknot 3 years, 6 months ago on Craig City Council considering new police station

Moffat County is Moffat County and Craig is right in the middle of it. Some mindsets are hard to change, and some lessons are never learned. Some people have the desire to change/build/move things without having a complete or full understanding of the subject matter. All they understand is the desire to change. When you stop and reconsider the past, the only things that really change are the names and faces.

slipknot 3 years, 7 months ago on How do you feel State Sen. Al White performed during his 10 years in the state legislature?

I sent several letters and emails and even called this guys office, over a period of 15 months, regarding a problem I was hoping he could help with. I got absolutely no response, none, nada, zilch. Not even a form letter or email from a staffer. Do I think T. Wright will do any better? If you're a rauncher (yeah I spelled it right) you bet he will. If you're a run of the mill hunter/citizen; no way, forget about it. We just as well send nobody for all the representation the normal citizen will get.

slipknot 3 years, 8 months ago on Should the Colorado Division of Wildlife propose rules that would make illegal the hunting and taking of wildlife in their dens, caves and roosts?

I've read the original article and I regret my comments. I apologize to Richard for them. I understand the circumstances now, no hounds, he knew the location of the bear before he bought the license? Maybe this is the sheep killer that's been in that area for the last few years? In any case I was wrong. I apologize

slipknot 3 years, 8 months ago on Should the Colorado Division of Wildlife propose rules that would make illegal the hunting and taking of wildlife in their dens, caves and roosts?

I have mixed feelers about this, I've gotten the special thrill that comes with running a lion or bear with a pack of well trained hounds, but not killing the bear or cat, because you can run those same hounds after coons and get almost the same thrill. I started "shooting" with a camera several years ago, and until I grew too physically challenged to keep up with the dogs, I stayed with it. But never did I allow myself or anyone with me to go into the den after a bear. Sometimes a hound would, but this was only after very special hunting and environmental circumstances. I don't understand how this happened? If the bear was truly 'denned' up then the hunter must have had prior knowledge of its' location in order to track it to the den? Were hounds involved? What else is involved? I truly feel it was not a hunting act that would reflect a hunter acting within fair chase and fair kill laws. Unethical Act.

slipknot 3 years, 11 months ago on What is your perception of Moffat County’s methamphetamine abuse issue?

Boy talk about living with your head in the sand. It's great that someone wants to live their lives free of a substance like meth. But mom you need to wake and smell the cat p**! MoCo has a meth problem and it's not being generated by CAPS. It's coming from your own little burg and your own people are cooking, packaging, selling, and using the crap. They've been trained by outsiders. How's that for in your face?
