  • Bike lanes: Too close for comfort?

    By Greg Dobbs

    This is about more striped bicycle lanes on our roads, which our Jefferson County commissioners approved late last month, and it isn’t only important if you ride a bike. If you drive a car, it’s about you, too.

  • A do and a don’t for the holiday season

    As we enter the holiday season, I’m thinking about a big do and a big don’t.

    The big do is Colorado Gives Day. In its five-year history, Colorado Gives has become the preferred way of making end-of-year charitable gifts for many people in our state. An initiative of the Community First Foundation and First Bank, Colorado Gives Day is an easy way to make contributions to more than 1,800 of our state’s nonprofit organizations.

  • Time for a lesson in conciliation

    The results in Tuesday’s school board recall were not surprising, but the vote margins were stunning: Ken Witt, John Newkirk and Julie Williams were recalled with about 64 percent of the votes in a county where registrations are evenly split among Democrats, Republicans and independents.

    Editor:

    My career in Jeffco, which began in 1961 at Mountain View Elementary School, included the old Prospect Valley, old North Lakewood, Lumberg, Foster, Vanderhoof, Devinny, Bear Creek, Kendrick Lakes, Green Mountain, Dennison, and concluded in a formal sense in August 1996 when I retired from D’Evelyn Junior/Senior High School.

    Support for the slate of five board hopefuls

    Editor:

    As an educator for the past 37 years, the local and national agendas that surround our school environments are near and dear to my heart. Thus, I feel compelled to convey the importance of the Jefferson County school board election.

    Thanks for help with ALS fund-raiser

    Editor:

    I just wanted to say what a wonderful community we have at CrossFit Evergreen. On a recent Saturday, CrossFit graciously hosted an ALS fund-raiser in memory of my brother-in-law Stephen Streett. Through sweat and laughter and tears, we raised more than $5,000 for ALS research at the Robert Packard Center.
