Town of Estes Park offers food tax refunds to qualified residents during May
#1 May 7, 2012
If this story had a good reporter, the headline would read " Town rakes in over $680,000 a year in food tax, but distributes less than $25,000 to qualified residents."
This has been ongoing for years yet this newspaper nevers reports this. Why?
Because this is one of their " cash cows."
Since: Jan 11

ISS - you raise a very good point! IMHO it's immoral to tax food, even if the money comes from tourists during the summer months.
If this town had decent newspaper, with good reporters, many things would be reported in a timely manner, like the brutal assault and rape that happened at a party attended by local teenagers on April 19. This was not reported until May 4, and then merely as a line item in the police log section of the Estes Park News. No, it's 'happy news' and "ho hum just another day in paradise" for the two local news(?)papers. The town hasn't had a decent reporter since Jackie Hutchins left years ago.

I knew nothing of the brutal rape and assault. How horrible.
If a reporter would take a little bit of time to see the corruption in the school district run by unsavory folks like Todd Jirsa (of Elkhorn Inc fame) heads would roll. Many similar cover ups just like the unfortunate rape and assault of this teenager have taken place in district p-3. Heck, if you and I can see through the facade of this town why can't the newspaper?

You wil never see any ' News' in the E.P. News. That's because the Hazletons have sold out to their investors in their paper. They will only print ' happy' stuff. Anything controversial they will not allow to be printed. That paper is so slanted even my parakeet refuses to read it at the bottom of his cage!
