The article states that the business began selling cheese in 2000. The zoning was changed in 2001 and they were not notified at that time. I just find it exceedingly odd that it took 12 years for the planning commission to get around to informing the Monteillets that they were out of compliance. The took 12 years to inform the owner and demanded compliance within 30 days or they would turn them over to the prosecutor. I'm sorry to say that it pretty arrogant.
It may be a knee-jerk reaction, but something doesn't pass the smell test in Columbia County. This is one of the most ridiculous abuses of zoning changes I have ever seen. One has to wonder who benefits from the destruction of a viable business and a highly touted tourist attraction?
barracuda, do you mean changing the rules that majority rules. Funny I thought that was the rule, until one party demanded that a majority constituted 51+9.
The fact remains that what you stated is not true. Vehicle accidents related to anything haven't gone up 300% in Colorado. I don't think I need to be schooled by you either, namvet, thanks anyway.
Pearly... Do you know how many felonies are on the books. All of them do not necessarily fit your definition. One example: An 18 yr old kid, walking on a railroad track, carrying his 22 rifle,( with a hunting license) arrested and charged with felony trespass with a fire arm. This particular felony was issued by BLM workers. That's how you criminalize every action. This particular example shows how easily a felony can impact a life, forever. We have way too many felonies that were once misdemeanors, and misdemeanors that were once considered mischief.
Namvet, your contention that pot/drug related vehicle accidents has increased by 300% in Colorado since it legalized pot use, is a flat out falsehood. I'm assuming your source is brietbart.com, and if so you missed some vital information. Over the past decade, comes to mind. The article clearly states which areas of the country were studied and Colorado isn't even on the list. Whether the study is correct or not could be discussed, but stating emphatically that drug related vehicle accidents have risen 300% since Colorado legalized marijuana is not only total untrue, it is a false flag to incite people. Check your sources, and relay the facts.
So, Namvet, should we discriminate against a contractor based on his employees? Sounds just a bit short sighted. The bidding process should be conducted and the bid awarded based on cost, not on whether the workers are members of a union. Your union bias is showing.
Only Nightglow will be at WWCC, the daily launch will be from Garrison as it has been in the past. So the balloons will travel over WW to the airport. That part, at least will be the same as in years past.
