    Support for the slate of five board hopefuls

    Editor:

    As an educator for the past 37 years, the local and national agendas that surround our school environments are near and dear to my heart. Thus, I feel compelled to convey the importance of the Jefferson County school board election.

    Thanks for help with ALS fund-raiser

    Editor:

    I just wanted to say what a wonderful community we have at CrossFit Evergreen. On a recent Saturday, CrossFit graciously hosted an ALS fund-raiser in memory of my brother-in-law Stephen Streett. Through sweat and laughter and tears, we raised more than $5,000 for ALS research at the Robert Packard Center.

    Shooting of bear cubs was an irresponsible act

    Shooting bear cubs in residential area was not responsible

    Editor:

    The man who shot the cubs should know better than to fire his gun in a neighborhood. Now these poor cubs are dead.

    I had a bear try to get into my garbage this morning. He was a very big boy. I just shined the flashlight on him and told him to move along, and he did.  

    This man should know better, living in Evergreen among wildlife, that you have to keep your garbage secure.

    People have spoken: Witt, Newkirk and Williams should be recalled

    Editor:

    I am an 81-year-old great-grandmother, and I have grandchildren attending Jefferson County schools. I do not like the waste of money that might be going to challenge the recall of the three Board of Education members. More than twice the required signatures were gathered, which shows the voters’ support for the recall.

    Be an informed voter in recall election

    Editor:

    Marion and Jim Dries wrote in a recent letter that folks should seek the truth before voting in the school board recall election. A very good way to do that would be to check out two websites: freedomforeducation.com and jeffcoeducationtruth.com.

    School board recall is really about control by teachers union

    Editor:

    The discussion of the three school board recall petitions in the Times illustrates the stated reasons for the recall but makes no reference to the real reason, which can be stated in a few words: Not controlled by teachers union. This simpler wording on the petitions and ballots might not have impressed the secretary of state or voters, but would have the virtue of honesty.
