    A review of some traffic rules
    Editor:
    These are some issues facing area drivers. We have a good number of merge lanes at stop signs and traffic lights. Many people don’t yield when merging onto the road, causing traffic to slow or even stop. It might be a good idea to review some of these rules for many longtime and new drivers.

  • New school board gets low marks

    Oops!

    The new majority on the Jefferson County Board of Education made serious errors of both judgment and process in ramming though a contract to hire outside counsel for the board. When dealing with the public’s money and the public’s trust, there are right ways to do things, and there are wrong ways to do things. There aren’t many things that could have been more wrong on this contract.

     

    Let’s go step by step.

    It’s time for the penny to buy the farm
    Editor:
    If it costs 3 cents to mint a penny, why not do away with the penny?
    I mean, after all, does it make sense? Or cents?
    Of course, you realize this would mean our costs would go up. For instance, instead of something costing $1.03, now it would cost $1.05. But hey, just think of the possibilities. It could help pay for health care or even help reduce our national debt.

    Friday: Dream home found in Evergreen.
    Saturday: Signed contract on our new home.
    (I love when a plan comes together.)

  • Evergreen needs to live local, shop local

    By Ron Isaacson
    Evergreen is a town where people act to meet a challenge … head on! This year, we came together to support those who survived the flood, unforeseen disruption to their workplace or life.
    We’ve come together to rally for a cause and pool our energies for the common good. Evergreen is such an amazing place that was just recognized nationally as one of the top five small towns in the country to retire in. It was praised as a place where residents have worked hard to make their dreams a reality and can ease back and enjoy the good life.

  • Recall motivated only by politics

    When state Sen. Evie Hudak threw in the towel and resigned her seat in the Colorado Senate rather than wait to see if enough signatures would be gathered to force a recall election against her, some recall proponents suggested she had cheated them out of an election. If their efforts were truly directed at removing her from office, shouldn’t they have been declaring victory?
