  • From crises come opportunities

    All indications continue to suggest that Colorado is emerging from the recession ahead of the rest of the country. In just one day last week, the state’s economists reported that revenue estimates were almost a quarter of a billion dollars ahead of earlier projections; it was revealed that our share of national tourism spending had gone up for the first time in 20 years; and the value of oil produced in Colorado charged past natural gas revenues.

  • Training building will benefit volunteers

    By Mike Weege
    Evergreen Fire/Rescue has been planning to build a training facility for years. Research of building types and locations began in 2010, resulting in a proposal presented to the fire district board early in 2012.
    I encourage community members to base their opinions on accurate information. In our current political environment, both locally and nationally, accurate information can be difficult to come by. Please do your own research, gather the facts and listen to both sides of the conversation before forming an opinion.

  • Ninety percent of life is just showing up

    Woody Allen is credited with one of my dad’s favorite sayings: “Ninety percent of life is just showing up.”  Whether Allen actually coined the line (a rigorous Google search was inconclusive), I find it truer with each passing year.

  • Wisconsin’s lasting political lessons

    I wouldn’t have voted for Scott Walker for governor had I lived in Wisconsin in 2010. If I’d been asked to rate his performance over his first year and a half in office, I would have given him very low marks, as I thought his agenda to strip a variety of rights from government employees and make them scapegoats for all the state’s ills was inappropriate and overly divisive. Having said those things, I would not have voted to recall Walker in Wisconsin’s recent election either.

    We need a  family entertainment center
    Editor (and neighbors):
    I recently heard a rumor of a ranch/farm store going into the former Albertsons.
    And I must ask: Do we really need another ranch/farm store in our mountain community when several are already established; while Conifer just opened a large one a few miles away? Such could put established businesses out of business.
