    Now we know where Gerou stands
    Editor:
    I live in Cheri Gerou’s district. Now I know exactly where she stands with regard to taking care of children. Nice job, Ms. Gerou, denying funding for breakfast to children whose parents for whatever reason are poor.
    Every child (rich, poor, immigrant) has the right to an education, and a child who hasn’t had breakfast can’t learn.

  • Schools right to face cold, hard reality

    Sometimes you know that you just can’t win.
    I had a lot of empathy for school administrators across the Front Range last week when they had to make decisions about whether schools should be open during the frigid temperatures. All the school districts in the area closed schools Tuesday, and only Denver opened its schools Wednesday.

  • For the love of Fair Trade products

    My dad used to bring my mother, sister and me a little something on Valentine’s Day, not my brother. Love in the ’50s was a bit stilted, but Steve’s exclusion did make me feel a bit special about being a girl.

    Thanks for MLK Day service
    Editor:
    I’d like to express my gratitude and appreciation to the Rev. Dee Cooper and the Rev. Mary Ann Dimand for the fine Interfaith Martin Luther King Day service they lovingly crafted for Evergreen this year. 

  • Don’t raise pay; trim session

    Campaigning door to door yields some interesting conversations. One day, as I was walking up to a house, I heard a voice from the back of the garage yell, “Who are you and what do you want?”
    “My name is Rob Witwer, and I’m your state representative,” I replied. “I’m running for re-election.”
    “Oh yeah?” the voice snarled, this time with more of a bite. “How much money do you guys make?”
    “About $30,000 a year,” I said.

    ‘Whitewashing’ of Twain an affront to American values
    Editor:
    NewSouth Books’ “whitewashing” of Huckleberry Finn is an affront to integrity, and substantially harms the work of art as created by Samuel Clemens by scrubbing away his indictments of racism. What NewSouth Books is doing is morally and ethically wrong, and should be regarded as criminal.
