    Mountain Home changing hands
    Editor:
    I’m excited to share that in January 2019, the operations and ownership of Mountain Home will transfer to Alexa Cowley of Alexa Interiors.
    As many of you likely know, Alexa has been in business in Evergreen for 18 years, and her business has grown to include eight interior designers. Alexa and her team are incredibly qualified to provide excellent design ideas alongside the quality furniture and attentive customer service you’ve come to expect from Mountain Home.

    Thanks to the Evergreen Garden Club
    Editor:
    I just wanted to give a big shout-out to the Evergreen Garden Club, whose members do such a spectacular job at maintaining the lovely flowerbeds located at various locations around town, including the post office, the Bergen Park fire station, the roundabout in Bergen Park, by the dam spillway, and any I may have overlooked.

    Amendment 73 provides funding for education

    Editor:

    I will be voting on Amendment 73. I am a senior at Conifer High School and my younger brother is a junior. An education fund would not benefit either one of us, so I see no personal benefit, but  coming from a family with generous parents, I must consider the worst conditions for kids in Colorado.

    Editor:
    Evergreen Fire Department has placed a question on the ballot asking voters to help reinforce the district’s financial stability.

    Jeffco axes county business tax
    Editor:
    The lead article in the Sept. 19 Canyon Courier concerns the Jefferson County business tax being axed. The article states:” The decision will cut nearly $7 million or 1.3 percent of the county’s budget. Commissioners Libby Szabo and Tina Francone — both of whom are business owners — felt strongly in favor of eliminating the tax.”  
    There is no mention in the article of why Commissioner Tighe voted against the elimination of the tax.

    Enough is enough
    Editor:
    Responsible journalism includes diverse viewpoints. That is why I was pleased to read Steve Posner’s column this past week. This was a much-needed response to what I believe for many months has been one-sided commentary in the Canyon Courier attacking those with liberal/progressive views.
    Instead of ridiculing or demeaning views from the “other side,” I applaud Posner’s call to argue intelligently together. What follows are what I believe people on “both” sides could agree on:

    Providing accurate information
    Editor:
    Literature for a state senate race arrived this week and contains some misleading information. Since there are many new residents in Jeffco, some historical facts need to be shared.

    Delay would help heal the divisiveness
    Editor:
    On Sept. 2, this message was sent to Colorado’s senators:
    We must defer the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh until after the election of 2018. If the will of the people continues, the Republican majority in the Senate, they the people are confirming his nomination. If, on the other hand, the Democrats take control of the Senate, the people are speaking out for a change.
    Considering the far-reaching term of a justice, this delay would not be significant.
