    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.

    Thanks for supporting Salvation Army
    Editor:

    The Evergreen Salvation Army Service Extension Unit wishes to extend an enormous thank you to our wonderful community for both donating to the kettle bell fundraiser over the holidays and for helping with ringing the bell.

    Through our local community support, Salvation Army raised over $48,000; 95 percent of which will stay right here to help our neighbors in need. 

    Thank you and well done, Evergreen.

    Gardner should use his role to help reopen government
    Editor:
    An open letter to Sen. Cory Gardner
    Sen. Gardner:
    Thank you for the public comments indicating that holding government operations hostage to the White House demands for DHS funding is inappropriate. Holding federal government operations hostage hurts our nation and it hurts Coloradans.

    Thanks for allowing me to be a conversative voice
    Editor:
    You know the old saying that all good things must come to an end, and we all know that change, although required, is seldom easy. With this in mind, the management of the paper has decided to discontinue my column, “Not Politics As Usual.”
    They have kindly afforded me this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported the column and the paper.

    Evergreen Kaiser closing was difficult decision
    Editor:
    We write in response to a Dec. 13 Our Readers Write submission concerning the planned closure of one of Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s medical facilities.
    Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and we take pride in providing high quality, affordable and accessible health care. The difficult decision to close our Evergreen facility was made after a comprehensive, thoughtful review.

    Great column, but …
    Editor:
    Kudos to Steve Posner for his unusually positive commentary “Holiday healing” in the Dec. 5 issue. Very positive and uplifting.

    Kaiser Permanente closure is disturbing
    Editor:
    My blood is boiling! The recent announcement that Kaiser is closing its Evergreen office is disturbing on many levels.
    Why was the news announced in our local paper before patients were notified? I received an automated phone call on Friday, Dec. 7, and a letter on Saturday the 8th AFTER the news was published in the Courier.
    Patients were not even given the courtesy of a full 30 days of the change. I notice this happened after open enrollment ended. Is that a coincidence?

    Learning about the United States
    Editor:
    The fourth-grade at Aviston Elementary, located in southern Illinois, is learning about the United States and the different environments, climates, resources, and highlights found in each region. The kids in the class think it would be fun to receive postcards, souvenirs, resources, or any information about out great country from each of the 50 states.
    We hope that people who read this letter will be interested in mailing our class items pertaining to their state.
