  • Important for journalists to tell all sides

    Journalism, specifically journalists themselves, have taken it on the chin frequently in the past year and rightfully so.
    Bet you didn’t expect me — a journalist for more than 27 years — to say that, did you? But it’s true. We need to be held accountable for our reporting day in and day out. That’s what the public expects and deserves.

  • Perlmutter would’ve made a good governor

    The people of Colorado would’ve been well served had Ed Perlmutter become our 43rd governor in 2019.
    Perlmutter, who served eight years as a state senator from Jefferson County, and who is now serving his sixth two-year term from the 7th Congressional District, announced last week that he was dropping his bid to become Colorado’s next governor.

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.

  • Time to come up with reasonable solution

    What if the debate over health insurance was about what we support instead of what we oppose? What if the discussion included all 535 members of Congress instead of just those who happen to belong to the party in power?
    As Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ill-advised plan to ramrod overhaul of the Affordable Care Act through the Senate without allowing time to fully understand its ramifications failed last week, it is apparent the questions Congress is trying to answer are the wrong ones to ask.
