Now we know where Gerou stands
I live in Cheri Gerou’s district. Now I know exactly where she stands with regard to taking care of children. Nice job, Ms. Gerou, denying funding for breakfast to children whose parents for whatever reason are poor.
Every child (rich, poor, immigrant) has the right to an education, and a child who hasn’t had breakfast can’t learn.
I don’t care who or what the parents are. You don’t make children suffer.
Gerou had no opponent this last go-round. She will next.
Venomous rantings have consequences
Shame, shame, shame on Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Mike Rosen, Sarah Palin, et al and Tea Party Extremists for helping to create a climate of hatred toward government, government officials and politicians of opposing views in the U.S. Your daily venomous rantings have consequences on susceptible individuals, encouraging acts of violence and murder.
Daily tirades of disrespect, contempt and ridicule for government, government officials and politicians of opposite political views does nothing to solve the serious problems facing America. Enough of your vitriol! How about making positive suggestions to encourage government figures and politicians of all beliefs to respect each other, treat each other with civility and work together to solve our common problems?
Shame on all of you!
Elk part of Evergreen
I would like to thank Vicky Gits for a balanced article on the issue of hunting elk in Evergreen. First and foremost, Evergreen is a special place. I love having a herd of 50 come through my yard, falling asleep to them bugle during the rut, and mountain biking by a herd of 300 in Elk Meadows.
To clarify one of my quotes, while I can see “good arguments being made” by some to restrict rifle hunting in densely populated areas, I don’t believe more regulation is needed. Existing regulation is sufficient from a public safety standpoint.
In response to the issues raised in Boulder, as a responsible hunter, I would hope the hunter who shot the dog was fined heavily and lost all hunting rights in Colorado. And if the bus driver’s account is accurate, he should have called the police and made sure the hunters were cited.
Not adequately explained in the article was the need to not only manage the herd size but to keep some minimum amount of pressure on the elk to keep them from becoming further domesticated. Do we really want the only management in Evergreen to be people and their cars?
