Steamboat briefs: Program focuses on investing in historic buildings 29.9.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Senior director of Preservation Green Lab at the National Trust for Historic Preservation Jim Linberg will be in Steamboat Springs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Sept. 29 at the Bud Werner Memorial Library for a free program focused on how reusing existing buildings can be beneficial and how to qualify the environmental value of building reuse. Lindberg will speak as part of the local Talking Green education program. His talk is presented by Yampa Valley Sustainability Council and Historic Routt County. The Seattle-based nonprofit Green Lab advances research that explores the value that older buildings bring to their communities and pioneers policy solutions that make it easier to reuse and green older and historic buildings. Some Green Lab projects include energy efficiency for small businesses, outcome-based energy codes, partnerships for building reuse and reusing rather than demolishing old buildings. Visit for more information. Author Paula McLain visits public library Thursday Bud Werner ...

Susan Strong: Celebrate credit unions 19.9.2015 Steamboat Pilot
On Oct. 15, credit unions worldwide will come together to celebrate International Credit Union Day and the role financial cooperatives play in improving the communities they serve and the lives of their members the world over. This year’s theme, “People Helping People,” encapsulates the long-standing credit union philosophy. This theme honors credit unions’ constant drive to positively impact their communities to better serve their members. All credit unions share a common goal to offer access to affordable financial services to all their members and provide even the most financially disadvantaged the tools and the opportunities to be financially self-sufficient. Credit unions are unique because they are not-for-profit, democratically controlled, member-owned cooperatives. Credit unions pool their members’ assets to provide low-cost loans and other financial services in the best interest of the members, not to earn shareholder profits. The credit union movement’s cooperative spirit is embraced by nearly ...

Our view: Investing in preschool is money well spent 9.9.2015 Steamboat Pilot
School is back in session, and the Steamboat Springs School District is now operating its own preschool. The program, which serves 3 to 6 year olds, was previously run by the Northwest Colorado Board of Cooperative Educational Services, or BOCES, but this fall became part of the district’s elementary program. At issue: This fall marks the start of Steamboat Springs’ district-run preschool. Our view: Incorporating preschool into the district’s elementary school curriculum has the potential to impact little learners’ lives. We believe incorporating a preschool program into the district’s educational curriculum is a positive step that further strengthens the district’s already stellar track record of producing graduates who are among the top in the state. Now, Steamboat’s littlest learners are receiving the early childhood education they need to start kindergarten on a firm foundation that will lead to greater opportunities for scholastic success during their ensuing 13 years of school and beyond.

Our View: Rodeo: Part of Steamboat’s authentic brand 1.7.2015 Steamboat Pilot
More than a century ago, Steamboat Springs was the place where cowboys from area ranches would gather to show off their roping and riding skills. Those early rodeo events, which date all the way back to 1897, often took place right on Steamboat’s Main Street. The city landed a $150,000 GOCO grant for rodeo improvements Investments made to Steamboat’s historic rodeo grounds enhance the overall visitor experience Eventually, in 1903, it was concern for the safety of everyday citizens that led to the passing of an ordinance prohibiting people from riding horses at speeds faster than 10 miles per hour on city streets, but even laws like that couldn’t quiet Steamboat’s wild west spirit. Fast forward 112 years, and you’ll discover Steamboat’s appetite for rodeo action is alive and well and on display every weekend throughout the summer at Brent Romick Rodeo Arena. These days, the nation’s top rodeo cowboys and cowgirls travel here to compete in the Steamboat Springs Pro Series Rodeo, which is among the ...
