Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • November: a time to remember, a time to act

    By Ellen Golombek

    Before he served in Congress and before he went to the White House, Lt. John F. Kennedy commanded torpedo boats in the South Pacific during World War II. His distinguished military career resulted in being awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal and the Purple Heart. He was proud of his service and once said, “I can imagine no more rewarding a career.”

  • Plea deal makes sense for Holmes

    It’s time to make a deal with James Holmes.

     

    As we approach the year and a half anniversary of the tragedy of the Aurora theater shootings and as the pretrial hearings continue (and continue and continue!), it looks less and less likely that Holmes will ever be executed. It would be in the public interest to get some kind of plea in place that assures Holmes will spend the rest of his life in custody, to achieve final resolution and to put this ordeal to bed once and for all.

  • Wild turkeys are thankful they’re not extinct

    While we have many things to be thankful for, I think the wild turkeys must be thankful for being alive because these big, beautiful, wild birds came very close to extinction.

     

    This great American bird was fairly common over much of America and was taken to Europe in the early 16th century where it was domesticated and became a very popular dish. In America, it was also very popular, but there were no domestic turkeys to buy at the market.
