    To Evergreen in appreciation

    Editor:

    Several months ago, I closed Lee’s Barber Shop in retirement. It had been an eventful time, and we are happy with retirement.

    We wanted to write a letter to thank our friends and acquaintances in Evergreen for giving us so much support, kindness and friendship. We especially miss our friends and just plain all of Evergreen. We were so lucky to be able to have a business and raise our family in Evergreen.

    The ineffectiveness of extremism

    Editor:

    Kathleen Hames relentlessly continues to share her fear-driven agenda of right-wing hysteria in her July 24 letter to the editor. Her favorite bugaboo is socialism, which she fails to define.

    The 2020 presidential election and direction of the country

    Editor:

    In response to Justin Dick’s July 10 response to my letter regarding the 2020 presidential election and the direction of the country:

    Mr. Dick apparently believes countries that operate under socialism, the baby step precursor to communism, have a happier population. I disagree. Mr. Dick might want to ask people who are here from Venezuela or the former U.S.S.R. or those who escaped from Cuba if they liked that system.

    Friends of Evergreen Dog Park continue to look for space

    Editor:

    Friends of Evergreen Dog Park would like to respond to Rhea Slowik’s July 2 letter to the editor. First and foremost, FEDP’s goal is to advocate for and create a dog park in Evergreen that is a national model of community-based stewardship: one that provides the best possible off-leash environment, while protecting the natural resources of that area.

    Evergreen doesn’t need a dog park

    Editor:

    Once again the Evergreen community has been deliberately kept in the dark by Jefferson County Open Space Director Tom Hoby and Jeffco Commissioner Casey Tighe with private meetings being held since February 2019 to plot with the Friends of Evergreen Dog Park to place a park on private land.

    Democrats have a duty to impeach Trump
    Editor:

    If a criminal starts a fire in your building, and you walk past the fire extinguisher without breaking the glass and using it, the resulting damage is as much your fault as it is the criminal who started the fire.

    Owning up to one’s actions
    Editor:

    I was incredibly mystified and more than a little upset to see, upon opening your May 29 issue, a letter from former teacher and coach Mike Kuzava, saying thank you and goodbye to the people of Evergreen. Given that Mr. Kuzava was terminated from his positions for “insubordination, immorality and other good or just cause,” as your paper reported on Sept. 15, 2018, it is odd to me that you’d allow him an unfettered platform in which to sugarcoat his leaving.

    A glimpse of Shalom

    Editor:

    My husband and I went to Atlanta for the first time last weekend for a dear friend of mine’s family party. We loved Atlanta and were overwhelmed with the feeling of brotherhood and sisterhood that we experienced in this city and at this get-together.

    The party was extremely multi-racial. There were multiple generations of bi-racial, black and white adults together.

    My girlfriend’s daughter, Sarah, sent us this letter in describing our extraordinary experience. Here is an excerpt what she wrote:

    Letter writer should check his facts
    Editor:

    It was with dismay that I read the letter from Timothy J. Leonard in the May 15, 2019, Canyon Courier citing the “resurfacing” of the old diseases of smallpox and polio at our border cities.
