    Restaurant/brewpub does not belong in area with non-sidewalk streets
    Editor:
    On Wednesday night, March 5, at the Jefferson County Planning and Zoning Commission, I witnessed a blowout every bit as big and disappointing as the Broncos’ loss to the Seahawks in the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, what I witnessed was not a game. The score was:
    Economic Development: 8
    Neighborhood and Child Safety: 0

    Liberal school board members are the ones who lack transparency
    Editor:
    In response to Ms. Trasky’s letter: The only bully here is you, Ms. Trasky. The best interests of the school board and the children would be better served if Lesley Dahlkemper and Jill Fellman stop whining to anyone and everyone who will listen. It seems they deliberately vote against ANY proposals by the new board president.

    Tech turns ‘progress’ into de-evolution
    Editor:
    Recently my car was almost hit twice, once by an entitled millennial blithely texting while she drove, and once by a hormonally preoccupied cell-phoner possibly arranging a hot date with his girlfriend. I was recently at a mall food court and saw a group of teenagers closely bunched at a table, feverishly texting one another with no words spoken.

    Kudos for successful Skate the Lake
    Editor:
    As a resident of the Upper Bear Creek area, I would like to congratulate Jackie Mohr, Drive Smart, EPRD and the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office on having an outstandingly successful event at the Lake House on New Year’s Eve. We have been concerned about the dangers of illegal parking on Upper Bear at the larger events that have been held at the lake this past year.

    New school board is actually more open than the old one
    Editor:
    In response to Greg Romberg’s column of Dec. 25: Maybe Mr. Romberg should investigate the actual facts.
    First, the board has had its own attorney. In the past, the hiring of said attorney was done behind closed doors with no public notice. We should be applauding the new board majority for hiring an attorney in public and increasing transparency.
