STEAMBOAT DEPUTY CITY MANAGER WENDY DUBORD RETIRING
Steamboat’s Deputy City Manager is retiring after 18 years. Wendy Dubord has stepped in three times as acting City Manager, when John Roberts was incapacitated. The latest was this past winter when Roberts was hospitalized for a lengthy time, recovering from injuries he suffered in a skiing accident at Steamboat. She moved to Colorado for college in 1971, and doesn’t plan to leave. A press release says while she and her husband plan to do some traveling, they will continue to call Steamboat home. The public is invited to her retirement party next week. It will be Thursday evening at 5:30 at Haymaker Golf Course. There will be appetizers and a cash bar. There is no need to RSVP.
TIPTON WELCOMES VETERANS ON HONOR FLIGHT IN WASHINGTON
Congressman Scott Tipton was in Washington yesterday to welcome those from the Western Slope Honor Flight. The flight takes World War Two veterans to Washington to see the memorials that have been dedicated in their honor. Some of those taking the trip may never have seen the memorials had it not been for the flight, as the veterans expenses are covered. Tipton honored the flight’s founder Kevin Wodlinger with a Congressional Tribute, while thanking the veterans themselves for their service. Senator Michael Bennet was also there. This week’s flight is the final one.
