Tell Tod Jersa and Frank Thies that all they care about is $$$$$$$$. If you don't like EP the way it is, take your self righteous selves and get the HELL out of EP and leave it for those of us who enjoy the peace and serenity of the Estes Valley. I wonder, if you were to take a vote of all the full time residents of EP whether to approve your plan or deny it what the outcome would be.
I once saw a bumper sticker here in EP that said-----

"SAVE AN ELK---SHOOT A DEVELOPER"

Enough said!

Complain, biatch, and moan on a forum that costs nothing, not even your real name. If you were serious about any of your supposed concerns, you would spend a dime and call someone. Just empty chest thumping and posturing. Not surprising that your depth of knowledge extends to bumper stickers. Another simply, ineffective, harmless way to get some pretend gripe off your chest. Man up and grab something hard (perhaps your wife) and go to the Elkhome and do something. Maybe give some money to an organization trying to save it. Otherwise shut the hell up and stop thinking you did your good deed for the day. You did nothing.

I am a full time resident for 12 years now. I am 100% behind this project. This is private property, and the owners have the right to sell it, develope it, or not. Remember there are young families trying to make a living TODAY. It seems that most of the people fighting this project are retired. Retired residents do support this town, but there are very few good year round jobs for the non retired. Please give them a chance to support there families, like you did.
The number one question I here at my shop in the winter is, what is there to do in Estes ????? You can only snowshoe so many times before you want something else to do. I speak for the quite majority that are in favor of fixing up Elkhorn and adding to this awesome town that I call home.

"fixing it up". They are going to turn it into a tawdry, cheap carnival. I would agree with you if they were going to introduce something upscale that would atract real money and real interest. What they are going to do is tear something down and then tear out of town when it flops two months later. See ya, wouldn't want to BYa.

outa here!!! It would be an absolute shame if they didnt fix up the historic elkhorn lodge and convert it into a senior center and retirement home! Why we are at it, lets just make a new rule that you arent allowed to live or buy property in EP unless you are already on medicare.
And then shoot them

Elkhorn Lodge is a place for everyone. Except drifters. I say "ski it down to the nub, then turn it into a cave you can base jump into". Then all the dead bodies can be turned into a war mermorial. And then we can pile more dead bodies on top and ski down them. Plus I like singing.

IMO:.....IMAX's, Acquarium's, Zoo's, discussions got more civil debate than this 'Elkhorn Project'. And, talk about projects outta place.

When ya' get around to shooting the old folks. Practice by shooting the statue of the old fart and his dog in Bond Park....doncha' just wanna' puke hearing stories about him.

G'pa always said,'don't complain if you don't have a better idea or solution'.....Here's one, turn the property into low income housing for wayward illegals.....
I love money

Love it. Love it. Absolutely love it. Let's burn the effer to the ground and put a pile of money out there that Jerka and Lice can roll around on naked. I would pay $2 to see that, and $3 not too.

guy is clearly either corrupt or crooked. You can't blame all the bills he left us with on laziness, there are over $30K in unpaid arrears.

When the Elkhorn gets its money from the state, see, the idea is to tear down everything and put up a casino, see, and then invite the mob to take over, see, and then we'll have year-round drugs and fun and vice and pimps and the need for more funeral homes and guns and then, see, all the freakin idiots in this town will be overjoyed, even though their kids are users or engaged in underage sex or porno movies, because they will be year-round users or engaged in underage sex and porno movies, year around, and not be bored, see.

In keeping with the true spirit and culture of SS Pork, why not just rename Elkhorn Avenue White-Assed Way?

i have in the past rented properety to the new managers of Elkhorn Lodge & their statement of it now being very clean can surely be taken with a grain of salt.

I have in the past eaten with the new managers of Elkhorn Lodge and asked them to pass the salt. They are friends of JustSayInEP and said he was using it to salt down some of the young girls he lured into his van. I think he is making a coat out of human leather, ala Silence of the Lambs. This is why his location is hidden.
