    Trump’s decision detrimental to the United States
    Editor:
    This is in response to Mr. Akin’s letter from Aug. 16. I could not disagree with you more, sir.
    All the things that Greg Dobbs referred to are true, and the only person who should be apologizing for them is President Trump, who has himself by his actions and words demeaned the office of the president more than anyone thought possible.

    Evergreen Jazz Festival is a premier event
    Editor:

    Following the 16th edition of the Evergreen Jazz Festival, I am moved to write you and through your publication reach your readers in our community. I am a resident of Genesee and previously a resident of St. Mary’s. The Evergreen Jazz Festival is well-known to jazz fans across the U.S. because it is one of the premier festivals of its kind in North America. I think perhaps it is not as well-known here in Evergreen.

    Treatment of handicapped brother was uncalled for
    Editor:
    My brother, Peter, is 50 years old and severely handicapped. Because walking is difficult and painful for Peter, ever since Buchanan Rec Center’s opening in 2003 he’s enjoyed the important monthly ritual of “swimming” laps in its pool for about 10 minutes per visit, which is the limit of his endurance. On July 6, he and his sister, Diane, respectfully waited more than 20 minutes for a lane to become available, and then began his — admittedly slow — workout.

    Trump needs to ‘drain the swamp’
    Editor:

    It appears that our national government resembles a bunch of naughty boys who absolutely cannot have anyone except another naughty boy/girl as president possessing all the power it represents.

    On consistent alert for wildfires
    Editor:

    Wonder why we had a snowstorm?
    Cloud-seeding is over for the season. Cloud-seeding runs from November to the end of March. Now if we are lucky this year, maybe we will get some snow for a month or so to regenerate our wells and prevent some of our fires. I doubt that our insurance will be lowered though.

    Recall elections waste money, diminish importance of regular elections

    Editor:

    Not long ago we had a recall election for the Evergreen Fire Protection District board over a capital improvements decision. Now, another disaffected group of citizens is asking for a recall election to be held to remove the conservative bloc on the Jeffco school board. In both cases, the primary issues are associated with policy decisions, not malfeasance in office.

    Negative campaigning must end

    Editor:

    We have recently suffered bombardment by the most despicable, disgusting, demonizing political ads imaginable for most of this past year. I don’t want my TV viewing and radio listening co-opted by wealthy political interests in future election years. Discussions with friends, family and neighbors overwhelmingly indicate that I am not alone.

    Nicholson would continue to serve state Senate District 16 well

    Editor:

    I read and was surprised at the responses by one of the candidates for Senate District 16 seat, both by the intensity and nature of the responses.

    Doyle is best choice in HD25 to guide decisions on K-12 education

    Editor:

    Having served on the Jefferson County school board, we know firsthand the importance of collaboration — not only at the school board level but just as importantly at the state level. Decisions made by the Colorado legislature affect our children, our teachers and our public schools daily. A few examples of legislative action that affects our schools:
