    It’s time for the penny to buy the farm
    Editor:
    If it costs 3 cents to mint a penny, why not do away with the penny?
    I mean, after all, does it make sense? Or cents?
    Of course, you realize this would mean our costs would go up. For instance, instead of something costing $1.03, now it would cost $1.05. But hey, just think of the possibilities. It could help pay for health care or even help reduce our national debt.

  • Living in Evergreen a dream come true

    After living in our Centennial home for 20 years, we put it on the market on a Monday.

    Saturday: Signed contract on our new home.
    (I love when a plan comes together.)

  • Evergreen needs to live local, shop local

    By Ron Isaacson
    Evergreen is a town where people act to meet a challenge … head on! This year, we came together to support those who survived the flood, unforeseen disruption to their workplace or life.
    We’ve come together to rally for a cause and pool our energies for the common good. Evergreen is such an amazing place that was just recognized nationally as one of the top five small towns in the country to retire in. It was praised as a place where residents have worked hard to make their dreams a reality and can ease back and enjoy the good life.

  • Recall motivated only by politics

    When state Sen. Evie Hudak threw in the towel and resigned her seat in the Colorado Senate rather than wait to see if enough signatures would be gathered to force a recall election against her, some recall proponents suggested she had cheated them out of an election. If their efforts were truly directed at removing her from office, shouldn’t they have been declaring victory?

    Keep off-leash dogs away from others

    Editor:

    As a frequent user of open space around Evergreen (both Jeffco and Denver parcels), I see a lot of folks with their dogs off leash. Others can debate the propriety, but all I ask is that these off-leash dogs don’t bother other people and/or their dogs.

  • Words about time and the river

    Dear Sis:

    OHIOPYLE, Pa. — You never shared my need to return to these rivers and creeks and hollows when wounded, this ancient place where water and stone wage their endless battle.

    I come here hoping the universe will once again make sense, yet leave each time with the comforting and appalling certainty that life is merely a series of accidents, and we are their lucky or unlucky victims.

    A word of thanks to veterans

    Editor:

    The average citizen today, myself included, does not comprehend what our country’s veterans have endured. I feel the importance to help the public become more mindful of these incredible people.
