    Gay Pride display at library was not appropriate
    Editor:
    Recently, I noticed that a large portion of the main display case at the Evergreen Public Library was devoted to advertising and supporting the Gay Pride event held in Denver in mid-June. Prominent signs in favor of “gay sons” and “dyke daughters” were displayed, along with dates for the Gay Pride events downtown.

  • Enough Americans still believe in America

    Seems like there’s plenty to lose sleep over these days. We’re into the fourth year of the worst recession since the Great Depression. In Afghanistan, we’re a decade into an “operation” nobody seems to understand. Long-term fiscal obligations mount apace, pushing dangerously against the limits of mathematical sustainability.

  • 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.
