    Flag etiquette needs improvement at cemetery in Marshdale
    Editor:

  • To peace, perseverance and love

    I’ve never been fond of compilation columns or the laundry lists produced when deadline arrives before any decent ideas, but I’m going to indulge myself this week with a list of thank-yous amid the holidays:

    Thanks for supporting EChO
    Editor:
    On behalf of the staff, board of directors, and volunteers of Evergreen Christian Outreach, I would like to thank our wonderful and generous community for the outpouring of support and donations we have recently received.

  • Governor is lone star among GOP hopefuls

    A national Gallup poll now shows Rick Perry in third place among GOP presidential candidates, behind Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. The Republican nominating convention meets in Florida a long nine months from now, and many unforeseen fireworks, and much unloaded candidate “baggage,” could shift popular opinion dramatically. Thus, in spite of some gaffes this fall, Perry remains a tenacious contender, and might well emerge the victor in Florida.   

  • Reapportionment is really an art

    I don’t know how other Evergreen and Conifer residents feel, but it looks to me like the people drawing boundary lines for legislative and congressional districts must think we’re all schizophrenics!

    Adding bore to Twin Tunnels moves problem to Evergreen
    Editor:
    I’m not sure how attentive Evergreen residents have been about what’s going on with the I-70 mountain corridor, but it looks like they’ll be suffering some serious consequences within the next couple of years if CDOT follows through on its plans to widen the eastbound Twin Tunnel bore near Idaho Springs.

  • The reason for the season

    I recently read that 42 percent of Americans join the annual tradition of Black Friday, flooding malls and big-box stores to get a jump on the holiday shopping season. Many start well before the sun rises, standing in lines to take advantage of special deals for early risers.
    I don’t exactly remember when the term “Black Friday” entered the American vernacular, but it wasn’t long ago. Now, it’s heard as often as other words that enjoy a much longer tradition — words like Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Vote on short-term rentals ignored constituents
    Editor:
    A majority of publicly mentioned opinion was against short-term rentals. The Jeffco Planning Commission recommendation was against short-term rentals.
    So the county commissioners voted in favor of them? Was this a philosophical or monetary expression? It certainly does not appear to be a constituent-driven conclusion.
