    Voting record is disheartening

    Pay attention to EPRD plans for Alderfer barn
    Editor:
    To the neighbors in the vicinity of Alderfer/Three Sisters and along Buffalo Park Road:
    I attended an Evergreen Park and Recreation District Board of Directors meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 26. One of the topics of discussions was the Alderfer property and specifically the barn on the property.

    Time for NEW voices on Jeffco school board

    Misleading election information, again
    Editor:
    This past week, I received promotional material about the upcoming school board elections and why I should vote for the three incumbents. I found the brochure full of misleading information. First, the current board claims they are “making sure our graduates are ready for college.” Last year, graduation rates in Jeffco dropped vs. prior year. Per the 2016 ACT scores, seven out of 10 11th-graders failed to meet college and career benchmarks.

    Could we be the next California?
    Editor:  
    Could we be next?  Another California?  They cloud-seed, too.
    I have written for years about the cloud-seeding program. My well is basically dry. A new well a 1,000 feet away from my property was drilled this summer; they went down a 1,000 feet and got a gallon a minute. The farmers and ranchers east of the Continental Divide no longer have snow cover in the winter to protect their crops.

    High school dances teach life lessons
    Editor:
    My husband was out to dinner on a Friday evening a few weeks ago, and he commented to me that some high school students were there all dressed up and looked to be going to a high school dance—probably the homecoming dance since it was that time of year.

    Praise for Akin, Trump
    Editor:
    Among us mountain people, we have a HERO, a gosh darn, as Texans say, HERO! This is no joke. I am talking about Jim Akin. At last someone has given the world the words that describe all left-wing liberal journalists — that is 97.5 percent of them, including our own Greg Dobbs.  You are an Evergreen hero, Jim Akin.

    Dahlkemper would make good commissioner
    Editor:
    I was thrilled to read about Lesley Dahlkemper’s candidacy for Jefferson County commissioner. As an Evergreen mom with a tremendous interest in our mountain schools’ success, I had the pleasure of working with Lesley on school district issues over the years.

    A pitch for the Moo party
    Editor:
    While not a studious observer of politics, as a senior citizen I have seen many changes in the political landscape. In the earlier years of my observations, differing opinions were managed such that government did function.
    These differing opinions, especially within each party, have become irreconcilable. When marriages face irreconcilable differences, divorce is generally the result.

    Weeds pulled at Evergreen Lake
    Editor:
    I hope that visitors to Evergreen Lake notice that the noxious weed population around the lake has been slashed. Thanks to the leadership of Heart Cameron, Brad Bednar and other EPRD employees, a sizable cadre of volunteers spent last Thursday and Friday pulling and bagging weeds. It was hot but satisfying work.
    Controlling noxious weeds enhances the beauty of the lake and improves habitat for our native plants and wildlife.
    Thank you, EPRD and all of the hard-working volunteers.
