    Data don’t support well-test waiver
    Editor:
    Replying to Mr. Cerillo’s letter in the June 22 Canyon Courier: Mr. Cerillo is not neutral, being a consultant paid by the developer/applicant. I was not at the hearing, but I have read the case file, and I agree with the county staff.

    EAA’s new downtown gallery emblematic of Evergreen’s potential
    Editor:
    That valiant ex-Green Beret Paul Koentges just staged a stunning victory in downtown Evergreen. Koentges, now in his second run as president of the Evergreen Artists Association, has established the EAAs first “home” since its founding a half-century back with a highly visible member-owned gallery on Main Street.

    Commission decision on well-test waiver was the correct and fair one
    Editor:
    Re: “Commissioners’ decision at odds with recommendations from planning staff.” This is perhaps the one factual statement in the article. I am guilty of having presented the data in the case in which, thank goodness for Commissioner Rosier, who is an engineer and understands science and logic, was able to rule correctly.

    10th Mountain event was inspiring

    Facing the uncertainty of how a new event might go over in Evergreen, Western Business Forum president Russ Campbell organized an event at the Evergreen Lake House on Wednesday, June 8. The evening event was a presentation of 10th Mountain Division history and involvement, and presenters included three generations of 10th Mountain Division trained men.

    Evergreen Country Day School is a hidden gem
    Editor:
    Did you know we have a wonderful, independent school right here in Evergreen?
    I did not until last year. It is hard to imagine such a beautiful school in our own mountain area. It is deserving of more local news coverage. We moved here six years ago with our then-5-year-old son and spoke to many people. No one ever mentioned Evergreen Country Day. Since then, it has moved to a fabulous, inspiring facility behind Home Depot and has grown to 200-plus students.

    Signs at elementary school were informative, helpful
    Editor:
    I’ve been cogitating for a time on the “Post No Signs” directive that has appeared on the West Jeff Elementary School fence. People posted signs about community events and removed them within reasonable time after their events finished. Those signs provided a great community “bulletin board.” The signs, invariably, were well made. Nothing crude or propagandistic was placed.

    Boggs’ statements paint a distorted picture
    Editor:
    Why did I help write and sign the letter/petition to bar Jeffco Board of Education member Laura Boggs from moderating the April 30 Evergreen budget forum?
    I currently chair the Strategic Planning and Advisory Planning Committee, the Jeffco School District’s state-mandated accountability committee. This committee also functions as an advisory committee to the Jeffco school board.
