    Vote for EPRD incumbents

    Editor:

    Please vote on May 8 for Peg Linn, John Ellis and Peter Lindquist for the board of directors for Evergreen Park & Recreation District. These three incumbent candidates have done a marvelous job over the past four years keeping water in Buchanan Ponds, repairing the trail around Evergreen Lake and completing the connector trail between downtown and the dam.

    Disappointed to see end of Building Trades program
    Editor:
    The March 28 Canyon Courier contained an article that announced the closing of the Building Trades program at Conifer High School.
    This is disappointing and a disservice to students, though I suspect there is parental-, peer-group-, and teacher input to students electing to avoid this option. In my younger days, two years of “shop” was required of all boys and two years of “home economics” was required of all girls.

    Students show excellent character
    Editor:
    The Canyon Courier provided good coverage in the March 21 issue of the Evergreen High School students support for Parkland and school safety on March 14.  
    We stood behind the students and listened to their concerns. They greatly impressed us with their behavior and commitment.

    Proud of our work on ‘Legally Blonde’
    Editor:
    Regarding letter to the editor regarding “Legally Blonde” at Evergreen Middle School:
    Though we do see what Mrs. Dillon was saying, much of what she said was unfair to the kids. We respect that she has a right to her opinion but are sad that she so easily dismissed the feelings of the 109 kids and their parents who worked so hard to do this show.

    Change starts with action
    Editor:
    As a local business owner who comes into contact with a variety of people every day, I generally lay low when it comes to politics and religion.  
    However, in light of the recent Parkland school shooting tragedy, the ensuing barrage of opinions, and the overall political tsunami that has engulfed the  
    U.S., I have felt compelled to DO more.

    Don’t impose your opinions on others
    Editor:
    I write in response to the letter to the editor entitled “Legally Blonde’ or blind?,” published in the Canyon Courier on Feb. 21. While the tone and intent of the letter was well-meaning, it illustrates a major problem with society today.
    Specifically, one writer’s personal and religious-based opinions about an  Evergreen Middle School play is being transposed upon our society as a whole.

    Dobbs needs to check facts regarding stock market
    Editor:
    I just received the Jan. 24 issue of Canyon Courier. Upon reading Greg Dobbs’ opinion “Transforming the bully pulpit,” I couldn’t help but respond.
    Mr. Dobbs criticizes President Trump because “He very seldom asks how other presidents did this.” That is exactly the breath of fresh air that is needed while draining a very smelly swamp.
