Ruby Horsethief Fire Suspect

16375 51
Grand Junction newspaper has good article here
Breckenridge man accused of igniting fire on Dog Island | GJSentinel.com
Our local paper did not name the suspect, or the company he works for. They advertise quite a bit....
Trip leader may have been Chris Knudsen, also works at Grand Vacations in Breck. Grand Vacations has been an excellent neighbor up here, generously supporting many community causes. $100K in fire fighting costs alone, and this loser probably can't pay. I hope Grand Vacations will step up. Anyone can have a dumb employee, but there were lots of them on this trip. Why didn't anyone stop this guy? Fireworks are never legal there, and there was a total fire ban. Aaargh.

Which Hunt Indeed. A large group of my employees are on RH right now not a sanctioned trip but none the less the whole connection is work. I loaned some gear am I liable? Well am I? Do you people calling out Grand Vacations have any proof the trip was a company trip? And dissing a whole town for the actions of one. Some Ark valley locals had to kill a rattle snake at zoom flume no one blamed the whole Valley for that incredible lameness. The dude should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law which should include a ban on permitted rivers period IMO end of story. sj

Ok so Employers are now financially responsible for employees behavior on said employees day off ? In your world I would be responsible for a person I hire at entry level on their weekends.

If my gosh IF. Not one person in this thread knows IF it was a sponsored trip IF it was then yes they should step up. But to sit here and totally slam a company that does so much good and have absolutely NO PROOF that's right NO PROOF they even knew one of their employees was on a river some were. They give millions to the community here I run a small biz and they support me daily so I will talk to them today and ask that they throw some love to the river community if they knew if not. YOU can buy a few cottonwoods for the river community how's that. sj

Ms. Meyers your Socialist leanings are coming through loud and clear as well as your ability to jump to conclusions. I retired and got bored I do not need anybody's money nor do I let it sway me one way or another. This is about personal responsibility to me I know a dirty word to you. The kid that started the fire is solely responsible and should be punished to the full extent of the law. Which I hope includes jail time ,restitution and a life time ban on permitted rivers. And further more you sound like the Mike Huckabee feeling like you solely can judge large groups of people from what you've read on the internet. sj

Jumping to Conclusions interesting choice of words considering the initial Law Enforcement Report issued One person 2 tickets. No mention of Biz Trip or anything like that. Jumping to Conclusions that was my whole point. I can say everyone that disagrees with me is a Anti Business Socialist that spent time under the Gov's desk in Arkansas and have just as much factual evidence as those that say this was a sponsored trip.

I will throw in a tree the planting and the watering apparatus. And would be interested in starting another thread about how the heck do you all put river trips together and fill permits other than ask your Family then all the hot people you know then the ones with money that can help you that way And then the people you work with. sj

You are entitled to your opinion and I listened respectfully then pointed out how I thought you were jumping to conclusions and IMO wrongfully speculating about others. Again one person was issued 2 tickets and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I pledged my tree. You going to be part of the solution or continue to slander others for no apparent reason you to Breck boater. sj
