The recruiting line 28.12.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Maybelle Chotvacs is having a hard time adapting to life without her favorite bus line. Sitting at her home last week, the 85-year-old Old Town resident said she is missing opportunities to play violin with her friends in Craig because the city of Steamboat Springs cut the Yellow Line. She doesn’t want to have to walk or drive on slick roads to a regional bus stop the city’s bus used to take her to. “I think they’ve made it as inconvenient as they could make it,” Chotvacs said about the city’s recent decision to pare down its winter daytime bus schedule and cut the line that used to stop near the home she has lived in for 60 years. “They’ve still got the nicest drivers and staff. They are so good and polite. And the buses are good. Click here to see how other Western Slope transit organizations are dealing with the driver shortage. “It’s just a shame they did it this way,” Chotvacs continued. “Without the Yellow Line, places like Old Town, Fairview and Howelsen Hill are cut off.” Chotvacs’ frustration is ...

Medical Milestone: Looking back on 100 years of Yampa Valley Medical Center 21.12.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Yampa Valley Medical Center in Steamboat Springs serves patients from every corner of Northwest Colorado, with a much wider range of talented physicians than is expected in a community of its size. Hospital officials constantly are looking to the future in order to plan, expand and improve what the facility offers, meaning more patients can receive medical care closer to home than before. But without the original vision of a group of small-town doctors 100 years ago, YVMC may have never become what it is today. The early years Five community doctors first proposed the need for a hospital in Steamboat Springs through a letter printed in the Routt County Sentinel on Dec. 5, 1913. “In only this one thing do we believe we have not kept up with the world,” wrote the doctors. Not only was there a demand for a facility, they argued, but creating a hospital would boost the economy and draw more tourists. When the Steamboat Sanitarium opened in spring 1914, an article in the Steamboat Pilot said the facility had ...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Environmental Literacy Program helps school districts implement objectives 21.11.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Nationally, studies have shown that elementary school students spend less than 20 minutes per day in science education. Thankfully, Routt County schools are doing much better than that. As we approach Thanksgiving, we are thankful that the Steamboat Springs School District has included environmental literacy themes in two of its eight strategic objectives within its strategic plan. These objectives focus on developing “an understanding and appreciation of the relationship between the environment and human life” as well as encouraging students to “incorporate environmental consideration into their daily lives.” Yampatika is honored to help the Steamboat, South Routt and Hayden school districts implement these objectives through our Environmental Literacy Program. This three-part, standards-based, environmental education curriculum has been in the Routt County elementary schools for the past five school years, growing from 120 students in six classrooms to approximately 1,400 students in 80 classrooms ...
