    Signs at elementary school were informative, helpful
    Editor:
    I’ve been cogitating for a time on the “Post No Signs” directive that has appeared on the West Jeff Elementary School fence. People posted signs about community events and removed them within reasonable time after their events finished. Those signs provided a great community “bulletin board.” The signs, invariably, were well made. Nothing crude or propagandistic was placed.

  • Spend now, or spend more later

    When I first started working, some of the best advice I ever got was, “Don’t let the urgent get in the way of the important.” Over the years, that idiom has helped me to step back and think about long-term priorities, immediate needs and how they should be balanced and prioritized.

  • NFL risks demystifying the game

    I was lucky enough to be present at John Elway’s first comeback game. I remember well the feeling heading into the fourth quarter at old Mile High Stadium. As the sun began to fade and the final seconds ticked off the clock in the third quarter, things seemed pretty bleak for the Broncos. Down 19-0 to the Baltimore Colts, it looked as though my first-ever in-person Broncos game would be a bust.

    Warming temperatures, greener meadows and restless students — all signs that the end of the school year is approaching. While students yearn for summer break, parents contemplate the future. For those who are weighing educational options, I’d like to offer some insight into Clear Creek Middle and High Schools.

  • Help in the fight against MS

    It’s often said, “ ‘Tis a pleasure to live in Colorado.” And it is. We have some of the best quality of life of anywhere in the world. But one odd blemish that researchers have yet to fully understand is why we have a higher incidence of multiple sclerosis than most anywhere else.

    Boggs’ statements paint a distorted picture
    Editor:
    Why did I help write and sign the letter/petition to bar Jeffco Board of Education member Laura Boggs from moderating the April 30 Evergreen budget forum?
    I currently chair the Strategic Planning and Advisory Planning Committee, the Jeffco School District’s state-mandated accountability committee. This committee also functions as an advisory committee to the Jeffco school board.
