  • Gerou served district with distinction

    When Cheri Gerou hangs it up as our state representative at the end of the year, we’ll owe her a gigantic debt of gratitude for six very good years.

  • Access to information nurtures democracy

    By Jeffrey A. Roberts
    “Sunlight is said to be the best of disinfectants.”

Most of us have strong opinions concerning the executive branch of our government powered by the simplistic rhetoric of Fox or MSNBC. We have become a group of “Monday-morning quarterbacks.” The Bush hate seemed to be unprecedented, until the Obama hate got into full swing.

  • Inter-Canyon incumbents must be challenged

    Six hundred and forty-three thousand. That’s more than half a million.
    And those are more than enough reasons that two longtime incumbents on the board of the Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District should be challenged aggressively in this May’s election.
    Zero is another number of note in this disturbing saga: That’s the number of non-incumbents who had filed to run, as of Tuesday, for the four board seats up for election.
