Nice name there Little. Dave and Carroll have done a lot for the town of Pagosa. They have provided good paying jobs (witch is no easy feet to find in town), a ranch where Christians can seek a better life, a venue for Music in the Mountains, and aided young people in the pursuit of higher education just to mention a few. To say you hope he rotes in hell is a statement of your own ignorance. I am glad to have been a part of Boot Jack Ranch. My life has been forever improved. I don’t wish to bash you but instead point out to you a simple fact I know many families that have been positively affected by Dave’s work in Pagosa Springs. It is easy to sling mud at someone who takes a chance at improving our town. By using a name such as “little guy”. I have learned a lot from Dave and every good moral deed I do in life I owe in part to him. My prayers are always with the Brown Family. I also hope you recover from your current struggles.

The town is filled with sheep that are led. Led by money, that is. With faith coming in a close second (as demonstrated in your email). It’s no fault of DB. It is the way the world and always will be. If DB had no money, I seriously doubt you would be touting him. BTW, the lessons in life should be learned by ones faith, family upbringing and by ones own experiences and drive, not so much by what others do with the exception of JC. Ignorance is truly blissful, and I have often wondered what color the sky is. Pagosa Springs, Co,“Where Christians can seek a better life"...please. How about improving the life of the seriously poor! My goodness man, GET a LIFE! On judgment day, be sure to take a copy of your posting and see if it gets you anywhere. Good luck. I wish for no one to “rotes” in Hell or rot in Hell. But to say that you do not want to "bash", and do so anyway at the same time bringing in your religious beliefs, appears to be very hypocritical. If DB is a good man, good for him! Let JC be the judge of that. Makes no difference to me, but ask yourself, what have you done other than take from DB? Question #2. Would JC be disappointed in you? I am no expert but I know he would be disappointed in your grammar skills.(witch is no easy feet to find in town)…lets hope there is no foot odor!

after reading what is on the web about bankrupted pagosa springs,it seems as though since Dave Brown didn't get his way, he is selling out. Funny how family roots are quickly forgotten.
County officials/commisioners, I would claim temporarily insanity/total nutjob and get out of dodge. In reading the ps local paper, scary they are still around.

wow! None of you bashers would be welcome in my home.
Being wealthy is a state of mind. God is rich and abundant! The attitude I see here is of misguided religous freaks, who worship Sunday school books and being broke, and not the Creator and His abudance.If a child of a King is rich, how much more so is the Son of the creator of the Universe? Believe you are in poverty? Then you are. To Think the only way to be wealthy is to deprive others is nonesense.God gives wealth to any one who belives he can recieve it. To blame others for things not right in their life is a mental sickness. You can be and have anything in this great country, you are where you are because of your own actions, not anyone elses.

Sorry to butt in, I just wanted to see pictures of the house and ended up at this forum. Wow, somebody needs a life but, this is for Mesa Arizona and Seattle Washington. Maybe Dave and Carol need to offer grammar lessons to their supporters, how pathetic to "talk the talk" but incapable of being grammatically correct. Now I shall go back to being productive.

It is an honor to know you Mr. JOY. I don't know many people that could have come out of it the way you did. I wish you and Petra the very best in life!

so to answer writer Elaine Nash's question in her article - the answer is NO.
