Paul Robbins

Paul Robbins was a truly great man and someone with whom I also worked when we were hosting the Nordic combined World Cups. John, your words are perfect, and I agree that he’s got a huge smile on his face right now with our boys’ success Sunday and (Tuesday). Thanks for reminding us of this really good man and his contributions. Best regards,

Andy Wirth

Missing a roads grant

The competition for these grants was stiff: 1,457 applications for a total of $59 billion or almost 40 times the $1.5 billion available. The more recent “Livability Initiative Program Grants” from the Federal Transit Administration also were highly competitive, with $54.4 million requested from Colorado’s rural communities alone — including Steamboat’s request for $388,000 for bus shelters and other transit system equipment — against the $150 million available nationwide. These LIP grants will be awarded in the next month or two, so keep your fingers crossed.

Fletcher gets to compete

This is a great example of the Olympics NOT being just about the medals. The chance to compete and experience the biggest stage on earth for most of the athletes is a reward by itself. These guys acting as a team and pushing each other and helping each other is an example to us all of what it means to be part of a team. Kudos to the whole Nordic combined team and coaches.
