There is an awful lot of local news I hear on KRAI, but nothing in the paper. Glenwood, Rifle, Paonia?? If I want their news I will buy their paper or read the Post. Maybe subscribing to the Post again and dropping the "Craig" paper is what I should do.
Kudos to you for making your opinion heard....this big can of independent worms need to remember which and what they are working toward, not just draining coffers.
Hindsight is 20/20 and an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It should never have been let go like it has. Repairs will come at a MUCH higher cost than a little maintenance along the way through the years. We need to stop this spiraling demolition of our historical heritage. Given as a gift and used to collect money until it couldn't hold up? Shame on all of us!!!
My prayers to the family. You are in my thoughts.
We should maintain high standards for ourselves and others can benefit as well. Letting things go for lack of funding shows poor financial planning in my opinion. We elect the commissioners and they work for us, the taxpayer, and should be making an effort to maintain as well as improve what we have. Take care of what we have instead of letting it deteriorate. Sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture and strike a balance for everyone. At least make a dedicated effort. Raising fees for substandard facilities is a slap in the face! How can anyone slight those who go play at a nicer place for less money? Just because we live here doesn't mean we have to accept less!
Jeez, maybe someone should be checking the freezer in there??
Previous years registration was not given as an option to my "helper". Good to know when I send her back with the previous registration.
Not one comment in the entire article addressing WHY sales tax revenue is down. Maybe residents are facing budget shortfalls as well. Where is the discussion to tighten government belts or how and where to save. What can you get from beating a dead horse?
Implementing a use tax is admitting local consumers go elsewhere for major purchases. And why is that? Penalize those who buy elsewhere instead of being competitive. If the only difference in price of an exact same item were city sales tax there might be a point. However if you can go elsewhere and still save $5k on that same item a use tax will still be a savings. It will benefit our community coffers without contributing to local gouging. In today's cyber world shopping around is a given unless you don't care how much you pay.
I can see state and world news anywhere, local news is the only reason I subscribe. I receive 2 publications from out of state and both have local news for their area. Small town newspapers should have a healthy relationship with the entire local community. Not favoritism to certain views, but all sides of the facts. Just my opinion, am I alone in my thinking?
