Rick Abell: McCormish’s words ring true

I would like to compliment Nancie McCormish on her very well-written letter discussing the possibility of using the rodeo grounds as a paved parking lot. I totally agree with all the points she made.

One reason I started spending the winters here 20 years ago was the fact that Steamboat Springs is a town that has a ski mountain, not a ski resort that has some housing. The history and tradition of Routt County runs deep in ranching, and the rodeo grounds is a grand reminder of that history.

Ms. McCormish’s words ring true and should be taken to heart. My compliments to her and all those who hold the history of this area dear.
