Eat a Healthy breakfast

Why should I eat a healthy breakfast?

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Why?  The Journal of Nutrition and Environmental Nutrition studies show “The right breakfast foods—those high in fiber and protein—keep your energy up throughout the morning and stave off hunger for hours.  The wrong foods—sugary refined cereals and white breads—may make you eat more for lunch than normal.” In 1900, 2 percent of meals were eaten outside the home.  In 2010,…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Sunday, April 13, 2014

Ladies & Gents,              

We have gone 6 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.   

Joe Nicholls: A somewhat complex pattern this morning with colder air pushing in from the north, and one upper level system passing over us and to the south. I think we'll see a burst of precipitation this morning and early afternoon, then should decrease, as we see the northeast winds increase. Still looking at a surface gradient of around 7 mb, and winds at 700 mb of 15…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Saturday, April 12, 2014

Ladies & Gents,             

We have gone 5 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.  

Joe Nicholls: The satellite images show a fairly disorganized cloud pattern over the region this morning, so we should have a fairly decent start to the day. The air mass becomes more moist and unstable through the afternoon and evening, and there's a chance of a couple of thunderstorms. The snow levels start fairly high, but lower later tonight and tomorrow morning, as the…

Tom Ross - The Steamboat Today

In late February, the Routt County Board of Commissioners asked its committee assigned to define the parameters for a new salary survey for rank-and-file county workers to come up with a detailed report.

So that’s just what the commissioners got March 8.

The commissioners found out in the process of studying a detailed survey of…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Friday, April 11, 2014

Ladies & Gents,            

We have gone 4 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Not exactly the way you envision the last weekend to go that ends an awesome ski season. We should have a nice weather day today, and through the start tomorrow, but the air mass gets fairly unstable tomorrow afternoon and evening, so a scattering of thunderstorms in the area. A system dropping southward through the Rockies on Sunday will usher in a cooler air…

Joe Nicholls and Safety Wise Forecast for Wednesday, April 9, 2014

Ladies & Gents,          

We have gone 2 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The system that was off the West Coast yesterday, has pushed into the Pacific Northwest and will be into the northern Rockies later this morning and afternoon. There's a fair amount of high cloudiness over the Great Basin, so maybe not as pretty as some days, but still dry and warm. The air mass will cool a little with the passage of this system, but still above…

Cody's Challenge blows up Saturday

Joel Reichenberger - The Steamboat Today

Cody’s Challenge is, by its nature, not a race for all-comers.

Saturday’s course in the sixth edition of the race started at the top of the gondola at Steamboat Ski Area and went up, featuring 4,500 feet of climbing.

There’s something about the event that makes people want to give it a go, however, and no one on Saturday signified that better than Josh Westfall.

Ladies & Gents,        

We have gone 9 days since our last day lost to a work related injury. 

Joe Nicholls: We'll continue to see a fairly moist flow through much of the day, but the moisture layer will be decreasing and most of the snow or snow showers should be across the upper part of the resort. High pressure is moving into the West and we'll see a drier and warmer air mass over the next couple of days. A couple of weak systems will pass by to our north, like later…
