I got the numbers more wrong than the Mountain Express and apologize for the misinformation and any confusion. The actual cost of running the from June 23rd to Labor Day is $33,000. The cost per rider up to August 12th is about $101.

The cost of running the Ketchum Circulator route was $93,000. The $23,000 number was added to $70,000 that Mountain Rides would have refunded Ketchum for canceling the summer Red route due to low ridership.

Insertfoot, I am not sure how much it enriches Ketchum. Aside from renting out a few restaurants that would be busy anyway this time of year, they are pretty much sequestered up in Sun Valley.
Sure some locals make some quick cash they can trickle over the valley, but for most busine…

This was a ridiculous suit. I only voted in favor of the settlement because in the end we would have spent more tax payer dollars fighting it than settling. The good news is, since it is a private street, in the future tax payer dollars won’t be spent on plowing that street. Fritz will get …

Freakin Brilliant, we get your point and I would really like to sit down and talk with you and anyone else about the pros and cons of the URA. The one thing on your comments that drive me crazy is that you just spew out random numbers on the bond. They are on the URA site under financial sta…

I walk and ride my bike through Ketchum everyday and am very protective of our public spaces. Several nights a week I walk my dog through forest service park and i attend Ketchum alive throughout the summer. Forest service park is an oasis and a gem. Yet if one has an open mind and a heartfe…

Pretty much any viable alternative to power that is not generated by IdahoPower has been quashed by Idaho power and the policies set forth by PUC. If you think this redundant line gives the north valley any kind of resiliency, you haven't read up much on the state of the American grid as a …
