EDITORIAL: Council, Commissioners… Talking… Part One

We’ve heard the expression, “Talk is cheap.”. We’ve all heard it, because people often say it. When they’re talking. (Here I am, saying it myself.) One prominent economist has suggested that, based on market theory, talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand. Elected officials representing two...

Will San Juan Basin Public Health Cease to Exist?

The local health district that serves Archuleta and La Plata counties may become another casualty of the pandemic after withering intense criticism and scrutiny over its efforts to control the spread of the COVID virus. You’re watching the local news network brought to you by Happy Pappy’s Pizza-N-Wings and Pop’s Truck and RV Center. I’m Hannah Robertson. Citing long-standing differences in the way that Archuleta and La Plata counties view the regulatory role of public health. The San Juan Basin Public Health Board of Directors last spring, recommended that the two counties dissolve the district, and each form their own health agencies. But La Plata County officials say they have at least three months of research to conduct before it acts on the recommendations. And in Archuleta County, commissioners there haven’t indicated which direction they may take. In a report to both counties, the district health board said that lack of support for its directions and programs, and public scrutiny of its functions have demoralized staff, and undermined public confidence in the health agency. And unless the two counties undertake efforts to repair relationships, and protect the safety of staff and board members at all times, the counties should vote to dissolve the district.

EDITORIAL: ‘Will Serve’… Part Four

We’re going to touch briefly, this morning, on the Pirate — the Pagosa Springs High School mascot. For some reason, perhaps lost to history, the public schools in our little mountain town decided that their sports teams would be known as the Pagosa Springs Pirates. No doubt the alliteration of the percussive consonant, “P”, contributed to the name selection.

EDITORIAL: ‘Will Serve’… Part Three

“Just Say No” was an advertising campaign prevalent during the 1980s and early 1990s as a part of the U.S. “War on Drugs”, aiming to discourage children from engaging in illegal recreational drug use by offering various ways of saying ‘No’. The slogan was created Robert Cox and David Cantor, advertising executives at the New York office of Needham, Harper & Steers/USA and was championed by First Lady Nancy Reagan during her husband’s presidency.

OPINION: The Controversial Topic of Short-Term Rentals, from a Local Perspective

The Short-Term Rentals (STR) subject has been a “hot and spicy” topic in Archuleta County and its incorporated city of Pagosa Springs. In Archuleta and other counties of Colorado, STRs have become a scapegoat. A fallacious narrative consists in incriminating the nefarious STRs who are seemingly responsible for the housing shortage crisis that Archuleta County is facing.

LETTER: Supporting Boyd Neagle for Sheriff

I am writing this letter in full support of Boyd Neagle for Sheriff of Archuleta County. As a Deputy District Attorney for Archuleta County for almost 16 years, I have had the opportunity to work with many law enforcement officers and agencies. When it comes to the leadership of those agencies, you need someone with honesty, integrity, and experience. You need someone who is willing to go the extra mile in leading and training those within the agency and who truly cares about the community that they serve.

Archuleta Seniors Inc. Seeks Local Support for Grant Opportunity

Because no community funding partners currently exist, a grant request to the state of Colorado of $5.4 million for a new Archuleta County Senior Center building was denied. The grant committee encouraged the Archuleta Seniors Inc. (ASI) to apply for a Round 2 opportunity for the July deadline, with $5.7 million at stake. Archuleta County remains a vital contender for this grant. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to ensure that older adults in Archuleta County have a building of their own with supportive services that they need.
