I wonder who wrote the speech for these kids, and who co-erced them to be active in this endeavor. Is there anything wrong with restoring the Elkhorn Lodge to it's original condition. It's all about money,right? If you want an amusement park move to Atlantic City or Anaheim California. Nobody seems to care about peace and tranquility. Estes Park seems to get along just fine without massive development.

What a coincidence tha Dylan Jirsa was put up to shilling for the project by dear old dad Todd Jirsa who stands to make a nice profit from the project if ever approved, shameless self promotion through your kid, should be ashamed of yourself Todd.

is Todd Jirsa. He is president of the school board that continually whines for money yet he is putting millions into a money making venture for himself. Wouldn't the students of Estes Park be better served by his investment dollars than an amusement park that most of these students could not even afford to go to?

What a bunch of cranky whiners ! When's the last time you cared enough about anything to step away from your keyboard, go meet your state leaders and pitch an idea to them ? "Your" part of Estes is probably just fine, but the other folks would actually like to eat, send their kids to school, and make a living, that's tough in Estes. Let me guess, worked "somewhere else" retired to Estes, hate the tourists, don't want anything to change. Ever.

You should be ashamed, instead of drugs and mischief, these kids are going to the state capital to influence their own future.

Stop you pious nonsense. If TJ wants to start a business, that is entirely within his jurisdiction. But when he uses school kids to pitch an idea that taxpayers are going to have to foot the bill for, that is bordering on criminal negligence. Wby not just put his kids out on the street and turn tricks for him. It's just as unsavory. Grow up and learn that doing something the right way is fine, doing something the wrong way will be attacked everytime by decent, upright, taxpaying citizens. Go back to drinking your pina coladas and giving your dog another enema.

or Assville. Maybe you should stop butt-hugging your children and start reading the newspapers. Tnis is not an enterprise funded by Todd Jerksa, this is an enterprise funded by the taxpayers that Todd Jerksa will get rich over scavenenging the goodwill of the Butthorn Lodge.
