  • Primary system disenfranchises voters
  • At Jeffco Schools, real-life civics lessons

    Jefferson County students got a real-life lesson in civil disobedience last September when school board member Julie Williams suggested that a curriculum review committee be established that would, among other things, look into Advance Placement U.S. history classes with direction that “materials should not encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law.”

    Speeding on Brook Forest Road endangers residents, motorists

    Editor:

    I am 11 years old, and I have seen at least seven crashes on Brook Forest Road. I am sick and tired of people flying up the road and sounding as loud as a race car.

    Too many people have learned the hard way going too fast. A lot of the stories are dreadful, and I heard that one person even died. The others have had a lot of luck. I was shocked to see one live to see another day.

    Testing is not connected to school accountability

    Editor:

    Greg Romberg’s recent column speaks of school “accountability” and testing as if they were somehow connected. In my opinion (many years in education, many years in business), they are not.

  • From Watergate to Deflate-gate

    It’s pretty well documented now that the “Prince of Pigskins,” Tom Brady, cheated in the championship game, and in all probability in many other games as well. He is likely to be fined and suspended. His team will probably be punished, reminding us of their involvement in “film-gate” a scandal in which the league found the Patriots’ actions to be outside the rules. In a way, it’s a predictable situation when each team brings its own footballs. How about the NFL bring the pigskins, and everyone uses them?
