Civil discourse not an option

Strange that this should come right after the Estes Town Board declined the option for EPIC.  (Feb 11, 2013 | post #5)

Estes Park: there must be a better way, citizens say

The arguments have been made and the decision has been made. To EPIC supporters, find an alternative site for your plans, but let this decision go. It has been made, and the more you continue to revisit the past, the more difficult it will become to continue any plan for the future. The board has spoken. Let it go.  (Feb 9, 2013 | post #3)

Estes Park trustees say no to EPIC request

I commend the Estes Park Board of Trustees for using common sense and rejecting this purchase option request by EPIC.  (Jan 25, 2013 | post #6)

Estes Park to take up EPIC again

Count my name on the list of opposition to this project for reasons I have stated previously. I am not a downtown merchant or store owner, but I do care about the use and future of downtown. EPIC has no specific plan, no realistic numbers to present, or anything that would suggest that their proposal will succeed in doing anything other than taking up public parking spaces.  (Jan 22, 2013 | post #3)

EPIC presentation to go before Estes Park town board

I have stated before that I believe the current plans for the location of the performing arts center is a bad idea. I support the merchants and their concerns regarding parking and other issues associated with this proposal. EPIC seems to be making rosy predictions here that cannot be verified. EPIC should choose another location away from downtown so as to not affect the already limited parking situation in downtown Estes Park. In addition, I feel that there must be a better use for the old Park Theater Mall property than a performing arts center.  (Jan 6, 2013 | post #1)

Theater decision a blow to Estes Park project

The performing arts center should be put to a vote of the residents of Estes Park. Then, there can be no doubt as to the validity of any outcome. And by the way, whatever happened to the performing arts center being located near the fairgrounds? I thought that this was the location in the original proposal.  (Dec 8, 2012 | post #3)

Estes Park theater proposal stirs up emotions

For all the points listed above in the meeting and then some, this facility located on this property is just not a good idea. I am opposed to this performing arts center being built in this location.  (Dec 8, 2012 | post #5)

Estes Park performing arts theater suffers setback Truste...

Here's an idea. All you artsy progressives that love your "art" so much, go down the canyon to Boulder. There you will find a wonderful artsy place. I could name other towns in the foothills and mountain areas, but you get the idea.  (Dec 4, 2012 | post #20)

Estes Park performing arts theater suffers setback Truste...

I am not convinced that a performing arts center is the best use for this property. I would suggest that perhaps the town is looking for a use for the property that would generate tax revenue. A performing arts center would probably be a non taxable entity. In addition, if the property in question were taken out of public parking, it would exacerbate and already difficult parking situation for the downtown area.  (Nov 29, 2012 | post #2)

Weather closes Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain Nationa...

It never ceases to amaze me regarding the changes in weather in Rocky. One of the great things about Rocky Mountain National Park.  (Oct 16, 2012 | post #1)

Ignoring the rules in Rocky Mountain National Park

I have seen this happen a number of times in the Park, especially above timber line. People will leave the pull out areas or trails and walk across the tundra. In spite of the pleas and warnings as to what a boot or shoe can do to the fragile alpine tundra, they ignore such things and just walk where they please. Perhaps some good fines and more enforcement would be in order.  (Sep 20, 2012 | post #4)

Prove there's a god.

Sure. Money, power, status, greed, arrogance, and more. All of these things and more are "God" to many people. If, however, you are referring to the creator of the universe, I can only say that if you deny the existence of God, there is no way anyone can prove to you that there is a God. You are the one who has to open your heart and mind to the possibility of the presence of and the reality of God the Creator.  (Jun 26, 2012 | post #514308)

Officials say powerline rubbing against tree to blame for...

Even though we don't live in Estes Park, this is a lesson for me. We have an evergreen in our back yard that is now growing into our main service line. I need to get that taken care of right now. As to those who lost their homes and property in this and other Colorado wildfires, our thoughts and prayers go out to them today.  (Jun 26, 2012 | post #1)
