    Don’t impose your opinions on others
    I write in response to the letter to the editor entitled “Legally Blonde’ or blind?,” published in the Canyon Courier on Feb. 21. While the tone and intent of the letter was well-meaning, it illustrates a major problem with society today.
    Specifically, one writer’s personal and religious-based opinions about an  Evergreen Middle School play is being transposed upon our society as a whole.

  • Feelings versus reality

  • Follow the money

    Congress passed a budget bill and the President sent his budget request to Congress where the differences between the two must be resolved. All signs point to much higher spending as Congress has voted to eliminate the sequestration imposed in 2013 to limit the growth of government spending. It’s not remotely possible that the total will represent a balanced budget as spending will again exceed revenues.

  • ‘A plea for equal justice’

    As a conservative columnist, I have always tried to focus on constitutionally based concepts of personal responsibility and accountability supported by the belief that our country is founded on the principle of equality of opportunity.
    My numerous columns always attempt to support these views with appropriate facts and historical connections thereby providing a somewhat logical and rational basis for the opinions. Given the very nature of Op/Ed columns, these positions welcome opposing views.

  • Colorado's Olympic talent reigns supreme

    Growing up in Steamboat Springs in the 1960s and ‘70s, the Winter Olympics were a big deal. We’d earned the name, “Ski Town USA” as more winter Olympians had (and still have) been produced in Steamboat than anywhere else in the United States. We all had everyday interactions with Olympic athletes, and I had friends who would become Olympians.

    Dobbs needs to check facts regarding stock market
    I just received the Jan. 24 issue of Canyon Courier. Upon reading Greg Dobbs’ opinion “Transforming the bully pulpit,” I couldn’t help but respond.
    Mr. Dobbs criticizes President Trump because “He very seldom asks how other presidents did this.” That is exactly the breath of fresh air that is needed while draining a very smelly swamp.
