No. 10 Steamboat volleyball set to host No. 6 Montrose in big non-league contest 4.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The pressure is off, so to speak, for Steamboat Springs High School volleyball. As the wins piled up this year — 12 straight, to be exact — so did the immense pressure. People beyond the Western Slope started to take notice as the Sailors strung together an undefeated resume, one impressive enough to earn the Colorado High School Activities Association voters’ trust to put them in the 4A top-10 rankings. Wins are good, but some losses are valuable, said Sailors senior Erica Yaw, eluding to Steamboat’s 3-1 losing effort Thursday night in an intimidating Battle Mountain gym. The playoff atmosphere experience was great, coach Wendy Hall said, and some lessons were learned. “I think we’re read to approach it better now,” Yaw said. “We were a little intimidated because everyone made Battle Mountain seem so scary.” But even with Battle Mountain in Steamboat’s rear-view mirror until Oct. 14, make no mistake, things aren’t getting any easier Saturday. The Montrose Indians are up next, a non-league foe that is ...

Steamboat soccer opens pivotal stretch at home with traditional rival Centaurus 11.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
For a non-league showdown, Steamboat Springs and Centaurus have about as storied a soccer tradition as you’ll find in the Sailors’ history books. For nearly two decades, the teams have squared off, traveling between Routt County and Lafayette to face each other as the Sailors and Warriors prep for their respective league title pushes. But it’s not necessarily a nasty rivalry. Look no further than the night before the yearly Steamboat-Centaurus renewal for proof. For years, the host team has opened its doors — and its kitchen — holding a joint team dinner, which Steamboat coach Rob Bohlmann and company will put on at 6 p.m. Friday, welcoming coach Ken Ebersole’s Warriors to town. “It’s just a long-standing tradition that both programs have,” Bohlmann said during Wednesday’s practice. “We’ve known Kenny for a long time, and we have a pretty mutual respect for each other’s programs.” On the field, the teams have traded wins the past five years with the home team coming out on top each of the last ...

Steven Hoffman: Editorial misses point 10.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Steamboat Pilot & Today’s Sunday editorial, “Conservation and oil wells,” completely missed the main public policy point that is central to the purpose of Routt County’s purchase of development rights program. PDR was created and affirmed by the voters of Routt County for the singular purpose of preserving from development designated land within the county. Funds are collected continuously from county taxpayers to support PDR. Landowners who meet the criteria of this program receive funds through PDR as, in effect, a payment against the reduced value of their land when they agree to a trust arrangement that legally prevents future development on such land brought into the trust. The Pilot thinks “that PDR has fulfilled its mission year after year.” I would suggest that a few facts undermine the Pilot’s belief. Let’s take a look at the most recent conservation easement approved by the Routt County commissioners and supported by the Pilot. Smith Rancho is north of Hayden. Does anyone believe there is a ...
