    Retired school employees seek answers on several issues

    Editor:

    Retired Jeffco employees are presenting some of our major concerns that we would like the Board of Education to clarify for us as well as the Jeffco community:

    • Justify why you felt the need to hire Brad Miller as the board attorney, as that has not been done by previous Jeffco school boards.

    • Clarify fully the terms of Miller’s contract. Discuss why the majority of his services on his invoices to the district to date have been redacted.

  • Listen to a story about a man named Jed

    “Follow him to hell!”

    One of the more memorable things from my four springs as a student at Colorado State University was the annual pilgrimage to Fort Collins by a street preacher named Jed. Jed would place himself on the wall between the Social Sciences Building and the library and, at the top of his lungs, harangue any student in earshot about the terrible choices we were all making and the inevitable consequences of our transgressions.

    Linn a wise choice for EPRD board

    Editor:

    Peg Linn, a 12-year Evergreen resident, is a solid choice for the board of directors of the Evergreen Park and Recreation District. She is running for the EPRD board because of her background in community relations and sees a great fit for this background on the board. 

  • After review … the ruling on the field stinks

    We are being bombarded by the Ray Rice situation. The story is now bigger than a case of domestic violence, and it sure looks like the league swept it under the rug. Why is that a big story? The owners know that, as legendary coach Vince Lombardi said, “Winning  isn’t everything; it’s the only thing.” Or, as our favorite owner, Al Davis, put it, “Just win, baby.”

  • Trails plan puts Evergreen on right path

    By Greg Dobbs

    As long as I’ve lived in Evergreen, and that’s 28 years now, there has been an upside and a downside to being unincorporated. The upside is simple to see: We don’t have an additional layer of government, nor do we bear the costs of one. There are so many generous, committed, civic-minded citizens and nonprofits here that we don’t usually need a mayor or a council.

  • Board majority must reveal vision

    Maybe they just got tired of being called the new conservative majority.

    How else can you explain school board members Ken Witt, John Newkirk and Julie Williams voting to pay, including performance incentives, new superintendent Daniel McMinimee almost 40 percent more than his predecessor and to give him a five-year contract despite the fact that he’s never been a superintendent before? The decision doesn’t meet any definition of conservative I’ve ever heard.

  • Tenacious architect built a legacy

    With less than 20 days left in the legislative session, all I think about is what needs to be accomplished by May 7. So, when my father called last week to tell me that my 79-year-old mother was in the hospital in Wyoming suffering from bronchitis, a nasty gastronomic virus and acute renal failure — I was snapped back to reality.
