    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.

    ‘Correction’ didn’t address misprinted cost
    Editor:
    The Canyon Courier on Nov. 7 printed a “correction” to an Oct. 31 Community Voices op-ed piece by the Peter Lindquist Family concerning the Evergreen Park & Recreation District bond issue and mill levy proposal. The correction noted the bond and mill levy proposals would cost a property owner $33 annually per $100,000 of property value.

    Thinking about plastic-straw use
    Editor:
    Several weeks ago I was dining with my family at a local restaurant. We asked for water. The waiter brought glasses with large plastic straws in each glass.
    I spontaneously remarked, “Plastic straws suck!” It got a laugh.
    This double entendre might well suit as a slogan to help people think about their overuse of plastic straws and plastic in general.
    “Plastic Straws suck!’ Pass it on.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Vote for 7A
    Editor:
    Evergreen Fire Department has placed a question on the ballot asking voters to help reinforce the district’s financial stability.
    Many unforeseen statewide circumstances have come together to drop the department’s revenue by as much as 25 percent.
