    Stay informed

    Editor:

    If you are an American and at all concerned about the future of America, you need to get on a mailing list (all sides of the political picture), and be familiar and understand what our legislators are doing. Pay attention. You might be surprised, even frightened, about what gets put into law without your knowledge. Be an informed voter.

    Population and climate change
    Editor:

    Homo sapiens is a large animal, not as massive as the blue whale for sure but big enough to be categorized large. At no time in all of geologic history has an animal as large as man (and woman) existed simultaneously in such enormous numbers (7.7 billion today and projected 10 billion by the year 2055).

    Crisis at the border
    Editor:

    I agree with (President Donald) Trump, there is a crisis at the border: inflicting fear and cruelty on children, separating them from their parents and locking them in cages. Experiencing prolonged despair, youngsters develop deep emotional scars. With little understanding of their circumstances, children blame themselves, feel rejected, and wonder “Wasn’t I important enough?”

    Crisis exists on the southern border

    Editor:

    I’ve heard it said that no crisis exists on our southern border. I know of two examples that support the claim that drugs are crossing the border, and that unsavory characters are too.

    Something to consider with new developments

    Editor:

    Commissioners, over the next few weeks and months you will be asked to consider three major developments in the Aspen Park/Conifer area for your approval. You will hear from applicants with good intentions that will undoubtedly raise issues of progress and growth to an area that is ripe for both.

    Attend Planning Commission meeting to protest proposed development

    Editor:

    I don’t know how many members of this community follow the local developments, but we are being bombarded with developers trying to cripple our peace.

    The development on 10250 Highway 73 is continuing with its planning of 104 townhouses with access off highway U.S. 285 and Highway 73. This is the second largest planned development within a mile from two others on the other side of U.S. 285.

    Jefferson CountyInternational Women’s Day
    Editor:

    Women struggle for equality in a collective effort to secure basic human rights for themselves and for all. As we learned from Dr. Martin Luther King, injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

    A gender-balanced world means equal opportunity and fairness for women.  It also means a better world for all. Liberating the oppressed also liberates the oppressor. Fair and equal treatment for women will end the moral corrosion that results inevitably from injustice.
