Bucking Rainbow Outfitters owner John Duty remembered when some fellow fishing guides made the trip up from the Patagonia region of Argentina to fish the Yampa River in March and instantly put it into perspective.
Best sports experience of my college years at the Naval Academy? The 1986 NCAA basketball tournament. Navy beat 10th-seeded Tulsa in the first round but drew a tall order in the second - No. 2-seed Syracuse, which featured Pearl Washington and Rony Seikaly and had beaten us by 23 in December. Did I mention Syracuse's Carrier Dome was the site of the NCAA sub-regional?

Special to The Pilot & Today
I am writing this letter in response to Thursday's article regarding the drafting of an ordinance to impose restrictions on "formula stores." This seems like another attempt by local government to regulate competition and provide protectionism to existing retailers that may be ultimately bad for the consumer. I own and run a business and have to compete with global companies who have huge budgets. If we don't provide the right products at the right price and compete in an effective manner, we will be out of business.
Will we ever get a community center? The City Council was blindsided on Tuesday with the estimate cost going so far over budget. Real sticker shock.
Many things have impressed me during my two-month stay in Steamboat - the great skiing, the beautiful environment and the friendly people. But there are two other things I would like to compliment the town on.
I have given City Council and the Library Board my solution several times, but it bears repeating now because of the exorbitant bids and rising costs: leave the existing Senior Center alone. It serves us oldsters quite adequately, has decades of useful life remaining, and is very well located and unobtrusive. What a waste and shame to destroy it.

Henry Zehner will act as superintendent of the Steamboat Springs schools beginning next fall, and in addition, will carry on his regular teaching work. The decision was made by the school board at a recent meeting as a matter of economy in the operation of the schools next year. Mr. Zehner has been teaching in the high school for the past five years, proving himself efficient and capable in any position in which he was placed. He has the ability to teach in any department.
The late winter sky is brimming with bright stars. Winter's showpiece, Orion the Hunter, boasts two luminaries, Betelgeuse at his shoulder and Rigel at his foot; his two canine companions each show off a bright star, Sirius and Procyon; the Gemini Twins have Castor and Pollux; Auriga the Charioteer holds the golden star Capella in his arms; ruddy Aldebaran marks the glaring eye of Taurus the Bull; and icy-blue Regulus marks the heart of Leo the Lion. If you were a constellation made of very faint stars and didn't want to draw attention to yourself, there couldn't be a better spot for you to hide than among the brilliant stars of winter!
Personally, I couldn't care less whether Ann Coulter stays or not, because sooner or later, people like her self-destruct from their own hate anyway. I do, however, challenge you to construct a side-by-side comparison of remarks on any number of hot-button issues made by Coulter vs. Dowd or any liberal of your choice, for that matter. I predict two results.
I'd like to thank the Steamboat Today for providing the columns of two women political writers, Maureen Dowd and Ann Coulter, in the Thursday edition. Both are devoted to their respective political parties and present current issues from that viewpoint.

At Issue: The new community center
We have been down this road before; yet, we feel compelled to say it again. The Steamboat Springs City Council owes it to taxpayers to reconsider building a new community center. There simply has to be a more efficient way.

Buying a "pig in a poke" means you have purchased something from the seller that you did not first investigate thoroughly. Literally, the lump in the bag could be something very different than what you were promised. The term "let the cat out of the bag" has its origins related to this phrase in that the lump in the bag was, on occasion, not even a pig.

It is a question no child should have to ask and a question no parent should have to answer. But Malcolm Gaines remembers, on more than one occasion, his daughter Shadreana wondering out loud, "Daddy, am I gonna die?" It was an honest thought from the heart of a teenage girl who had a tumor the size of a golf ball removed from her brain.

Do you have wiley weeds? Chances are you might. These are the weeds you spray one year, and then you think that they're gone, but they show back up next year. Or worse, they don't show up in the spot that you did spray but in a different spot! These weeds could be considered noxious weeds and Routt County has its share of them.
A few months ago, the World's Greatest Boyfriend (W.G.B.) and I were invited to join a potluck group. I love potluck groups. I couldn't wait to get out of my house, try new food and socialize. The theme: appetizers. An all apps party. No desserts, no main course, just plenty of finger food.
