Two men were arrested Monday night after one of the men pulled a gun on the other man after a fight, police said. Steamboat Springs police Officer Ricky Romero said the situation began at about 6:30 p.m. at the Southside Station, a gas station on Weiss Drive. Travis Blair-Coats, of Oak Creek, called police to report that David Moya, 24, of Gypsum, threatened him with a gun while the men were stopped at the gas station, Romero said. Moya left the gas station in his black Chevrolet Silverado and drove south on Colorado Highway 131. Blair-Coats, who was driving a white Dodge Ram, followed Moya, police said. According to dispatch tapes, Blair-Coats rammed Moya’s car as the men drove south on Colo. 131, though police said there is no evidence to support those claims. Each man had a woman riding with him, police said.

The Steamboat Springs City Council should have a new member by the end of the day. City Clerk Julie Jordan said that at 4 p.m. today the council will interview five candidates for the District 3 seat vacated last month by Kevin Kaminski.

Five candidates submitted applications to Jordan’s office by Friday’s deadline.

Assessment tests have been a popular item of discussion for several years, and two Steamboat Springs School Board members are ready for less talk and more action. Jeff Troeger and Pat Gleason, the two most veteran members of the board, said at Monday’s meeting that they wanted a timeline for implementation of common assessments. Common assessments are ways the Steamboat Springs School District tracks the progress of students individually and as a group above and beyond the Colorado Student Assessment Program, or CSAPs.

In sports, Henry Christian Hall may have been born in Mich., but his legacy lives in the hills that surround Steamboat Springs. “When he was 19 years old, he traveled to Steamboat Springs and fell in love with the town,” said Fay Hall, one of Henry’s three daughters. “He always represented the Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club in competitions and always felt like Steamboat was a part of who he was.” On Oct. 14, Hall and fellow Steamboat skiing legend Jim Temple will be honored along with three other people when they are inducted into the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame.
