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 ...

Our view: This pooch has earned his Gravy Train 29.4.2015 Steamboat Pilot
Routt County commissioners earmarked $18,000 in the 2015 budget for a new sheriff’s office recruit, and based on early results, we think it’s money well spent. The funds were used to purchase Boomer, the county’s first K-9, and also to pay for five weeks of advanced training, as well as his food, veterinary care and specialized equipment. At issue Routt County budgeted $18,000 to support a new K-9 unit for the Sheriff’s Office Our view The investment is already paying off with the K-9 team assisting on four felony drug arrests During his first few weeks on the job, Boomer and his partner, sheriff’s Deputy Ed Hendricks, have worked together on several cases that resulted in felony drug arrests. The 16-month-old German Shepherd and Belgian Malinois mix was called in by the sheriff’s office and Colorado State Patrol to sniff cars for the presence of drugs, and in two of the four traffic stops, heroin was found. As a result, four people were arrested. In both cases, Hendricks said the arrests would not have ...

Melinda Clark: Scholarships limited 14.4.2015 Steamboat Pilot
As the mom of a graduating senior, I am delighted by the many local scholarships that reflect our community’s investment in and value for our young people and their futures. At the same time, I was startled to discover that only approximately 10 percent of local scholarships are listed as options for the whole county. The vast majority of scholarships are limited to students who are graduating from Steamboat Springs High School. I understand and respect that each local scholarship is a reflection of the grantor’s personal experience, values and priorities. In some cases, one’s reasons for offering the scholarship will be the primary reason that the scholarship is limited to SSHS seniors only. But I do wonder if, in some cases, excluding other seniors was simply an oversight. After all, our county includes Soroco, Hayden, Heritage Christian, Yampa Valley High School, Steamboat Mountain School and home-schooled students. I think that some grantors would gladly accept applications from any of the beautiful, ...
