  • The media: part of today’s great divide

    Editor’s note: This column is the fourth installment in a five-part series that looks at the divisiveness in the U.S. Congress and offers possible solutions.

    The conventional wisdom, especially among Republicans, is that the news operations at the major networks favor the Democrats. It’s subtle, they say, but the stories they cover and the questions they ask show their left leaning. You might remember that Katie Couric ambushed Sarah Palin asking a trick question: “What publications do your read?”

  • Bowlen went from booed to beloved

    When metro area voters were being asked to extend the sales tax that had been established to build Coors Field in 1998 so a new football stadium could be built to replace aging Mile High Stadium for the Broncos, the polling showed something fascinating. One of the biggest obstacles to passage of the proposal was voters’ personal animosity toward Broncos owner Pat Bowlen.

    Thanks for memorial bench

    Editor:

    A beautiful memorial bench in honor of Laurie Roe now sits in downtown Evergreen right outside Bear Creek Hair. Thanks to all those who generously donated money and time to make this a reality.

    Special thanks to the Ross Lewis Trust, Jake and Mary Jacobs, Terri and Gary Carroll, and Don and Michelle Beaglehole. The remaining funds from the memorial account will be donated to the Elks Lodge. We hope everyone will stop by, sit on the bench and enjoy the beautiful garden.

  • There’s one ticket to Congress: money

    Editor’s note: This column is the third installment in a four-part series looking at the divisiveness in the U.S. Congress and offering possible solutions.

    I ask you to imagine that you are thinking about running to become a legislator, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Perhaps you have had a successful career, and you want to “give back” by serving your home district and your country. It’s a “Mr. Smith goes to Washington” thought you are having.

    Thanks to the deputies who apprehended carjacking suspect

    Editor:

    I just want to say thank you to the Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies who apprehended and subdued a heavily armed carjacking suspect last week on Interstate 70.

    As the video shows, deputies risked their own safety for the sake of their fellow citizens. I’m sure you guys would say you were just doing your jobs, but that doesn’t make this community any less grateful. Thank you again.
