Small-lot subdivisions OK

Of course small-lot subdivisions should be allowed, just like it’s obvious that large, seasonal employers should provide employees an affordable place to live.

It’s the easiest way

The city most definitely should allow small-lot subdivisions. It’s the easiest way to maintain affordable housing, not just for mobile homeowners but for all types of housing.

Fix streets, not rink

I live in South Routt, and I support Oak Creek businesses, groceries, restaurants and drug stores. I’d like my tax dollars to go to the town I live in. As far as roofing the rink, I don’t understand why a lot of strong-bodied young men can’t shovel the rink. We need the streets fixed badly and a lot of other things before we put money into something like that. I know they need their fun there, but it’s really easy to shovel that rink off after a snow. Reconsider — I don’t think we need a grant or to waste grant-money time on something such as this. The streets are deplorable; please fix them first.

Hearts go out to family

After hearing about the 19-year-old Oak Creek boy committing suicide and reading the family’s funeral notice at the Oak Creek Post Office, I have to sound off. The family pleads with families and any and all kids in Oak Creek who use methamphetamine, alcohol or other drugs to stop now. Use Daniel’s tragic ending as an example of how it’s torn this family apart. … Our hearts go out not only to this family but to other families in the South Routt area who are being confronted with drug problems and, in particular, methamphetamine.

How could Walcher do it

I was just wondering how anyone expects Greg Walcher, who couldn’t even run the Department of Natural Resources without constant controversy, to represent in Congress, the 3rd District, which has a thousand times as many people in it.
