Healthcare insurance for Estes Park R-3 school district may be hard for employees to swallow

Full story: Estes Park Trail-Gazette

In what may be a representative first move for the unhealthy future, four veteran Estes Park school teachers appeared before the school board Monday night, pleading for their lives, essentially - for healthcare benefits that will not break them, or force them to leave Estes Park and/or their chosen profession.

hard ball time. Estes Park folks saw through the whining articles to increase our taxes so now the district is hitting below the belt as usual and penalizing the teachers. How much does Hickey make a year? Enough to buy a brand new truck (you will see it in the parking lot), go on a cruise and to South Korea all in 7 months but our teachers have to suffer along with their families.

sure which makes me more sick. The whining teachers(We have personal insurance with a $10,000 deductible and an $800.00 monthly premium for a family of three)---or---the fact that Juley continues to be employed by this rag of a paper. The mis-spellings are unbelievable!

How did you come up with your statistic that 93% of the tecahers (Juley Harvey version) teachers (correct version) are great? Personal opinion or data based? What a biased blow hard. Don't know where you will get the money? How about the money you blew on Chapman? Her salary with bonuses was that of a district of 20,000+kids (we have all of 1350 and declining...I wonder why). Then you are paying Hickey what?$220,000.00 for a camera in the high school that won't stop a maniac from coming into our schools?$18,000.00 to change the locks at the elementary school because you have one pain in the a--parent obsessing on security? Ipads for secondary kids? They will never learn from ipads what they can learn from a teacher. The waste of money is abhorant and needs to stop because we the taxpayers (well at least me) will not subsidize your spending spree. Sell the d--n elementary school and recoup some monies.

with Juley Harvey since teachers, for the most part, work at a poverty level. Can we recall Jirsa and Juley harver?
