Donations being accepted for garage sale fundraiser benefiting young cancer patient 3.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The first of three separate fundraisers will be held this weekend for a 5-year-old boy with deep Steamboat Springs family roots who has been battling a rare form of brain cancer, an ongoing fight that has just about emptied his parents’ pockets. Logan Green collapsed after complaining of a headache one evening. He later was diagnosed with a large tumor clinging to his brain stem. What has occurred since then has been emergency brain surgery in Phoenix as well as follow-up radiation treatment in San Diego after the tumor was successfully removed, his great aunt and Steamboat Springs resident Lori Burch said. “Logan and his family, they are just going through a really tough time,” Burch said, noting that the 5-year-old’s parents Richard and Crisandra have been paying nearly $400 per week for his insurance deductible from his surgery and treatment. “It was a shock that he was a healthy 5-year-old boy that they didn’t even know was sick, and then this happened all of the sudden.” Burch said Logan has three ...

Jeff Troeger: EPA confusion 12.9.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Dennis Webb’s recent article chronicling the Environmental Protection Agency’s visit to Craig to discuss their new carbon pollution safeguards illustrated some common misunderstandings about the pollution limits.   First, EPA’s safeguards are not an existential threat to Colorado’s economy. They allow each state a great deal of flexibility in how it chooses to comply. The shift Colorado makes can include favoring renewable forms of energy such as wind and solar. These sectors are booming in Colorado, especially solar, and they provide sustainable jobs and revenue for the state.   Second, the new pollution limits’ implementation would be a boon to Coloradans’ health. Less carbon pollution means less asthma and lung cancer, which means less state and residents’ money being spent on health care as well as the obvious physical and emotional toll these health problems entail.   Finally, the EPA’s pollution limits are necessary for our children’s futures to be healthy and sustainable. Human-caused climate ...
