You cannot have it both ways, Stannie. You can't say "I'm taking my football home" at the same time you say "Call Me Maybe."

And the idea that four trustees "slapped Sharon Sheely in the face" is ludicrilicious. They spanked her bottom, firmly, for her silly ploy to try and fool you and us and the IRS.

Sell the property outright like normal Americans, Slippery Slope Sharon. And design something that fits with the footprint, not stomps all over downtown.

And quit, don't just say you are going to quit. Drown your sorrows at Chukcy Cheese over a root beer.

SEEMS TO ME THAT SOME KIND OF BACKHALL CONVERSATIONS WERE GOING ON BETWEEN SOME OF THE COUNCILPEOPLE AND SOME OF THE MINORITY PARTIES INTERESTED, LIKE THE OWNERS OF THE WHEEL BAR. I HAVE ONLY BEEN IN ESTES FOR A SHORT TIME,AND WAS A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR IN MIAMI FOR THIRTY YEARS.SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT IN THE COMMUNITY WHEN THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE CAN NOT GET THINGS DONE FOR THE BETTERMENT OF OUR TOWN.I WOULD THINK THAT BRINGING IN A LITTLE MORE CULTURE INTO OUR TOWN,WOULD BE MORE IMPORTANT THAN HAVING A FEW MORE PARKING SPOTS FOR A BUNCH OF DRUNKS.

IF YOU DON'T THINK THAT WAS HAPPENING BETWEEN THE COUNCIL AND EPIC I DON'T THINK MUCH OF YOU AS A PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR IF IN FACT YOU WERE ONE MR FUENTES OR WHAT EVER YOUR NAME IS. I'VE BEEN HERE FOR QUITE A FEW YEARS AND THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE I'VE TALKED TO DON'T WANT THE PERFORMING ARTS. IF I WAS YOU I WOULD RETRACT YOUR STATEMENT ABOUT A BUNCH OF DRUNKS. THIS IS A SMALL TOWN AND BOLD STATEMENTS LIKE THAT CAN BITE YOU IN THE ASS. IF YOU DON'T LIKE ESTES GO BACK TO MIAMI. BELIEVE ME, WE WON'T MISS YOU!

Hey Stan and Julie-----40 businesses do not represent the majority of the town. If you would have proposed building your Taj Ma Hall out of the middle of town and based it on a majority vote of the town residents I bet you would have had different results. Acting like a crybaby shows your true colors Stan. Apparently you are used to getting your way and it didn't happen this time. Try building your theater where it would be practical. Asfor the town steering you in the right direction, try north, south, east, or west out of Estes Park. Have a nice trip.

I commend the Estes Park Board of Trustees for using common sense and rejecting this purchase option request by EPIC.

The point it, there were back alley dealings going on all over the map on this one. Back door, trap door, hidey hole, spider hole, and falderol at every meeting and from behind as well. It ended like it started, a complete mess and Stanford Blacklist droning on and on endlessly and keeping the trustees from their 9:00 bedtime.

In at least two articles on this subject, Mr. Nagl's Wheel Bar is mentioned as one of the potentially disaffected businesses. Mr. Fuentes was merely pointing out that if the latest decision was motivated by a desire to preserve parking spaces for his patrons, that would be unfortunate in the eyes of many people, particularly the majority of merchants on Elkhorn. I would hope the designated drivers could locate an alternate space in the evening (since only drunks drink in the afternoon). Nonetheless, your ad hominem attack on Mr. Fuentes was uncalled for and makes you look like a narrow-minded old geezer, which I'm sure you're not ;-)

with Lynette Lott's statement about we no longer have the luxury of relying on Rocky Mountain National Park to supply us with visitors. Excuse Me! Has the park been condemed and closed to all visitors? Did it really burn down and we're not being told? Please Lynette if you read this share your knowledge with us.I would hate to have friends come and find out there is no RMNP.

only some of the people who claim to be posting from other places who are just using free wi-fi in local hotels and restaurants cannot get to the bathroom in time.
