    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.

    History should teach us to be better
    Editor:

    In response to Roberta Sutton’s lament last week about “what is happening to our culture,” I can offer some clarity. The statue of Kate Smith in Philadelphia was not removed because somebody thought her rendition of “God Bless America” was offensive.

    We cannot change our history

    Editor:

    Every time I hear a recording of Kate Smith singing “God Bless America” on the radio, I have to stop and listen. It is so moving. Her contralto voice and the beautiful emotion and love for her country shine through and bring tears to my eyes.

    The roaring applause for her both before and after she sang at the Philadelphia Flyers’ hockey game in 1973 also made my heart soar though I only saw it on film. The people who were at that game were truly lucky.

    Pais only a threat to herself
    Editor:

    It seems like the only threat that Pais posed was to herself and that one was certainly not averted.

    Even the FBI said that if it had found her alive, it would have no reason to arrest her. Being “infatuated” with Columbine is not a threat. It appeared that at least half of the population of Colorado was infatuated on the 20th anniversary.

    People Comforters received Individual of the Year award

    Editor:

    The article in the April 3 issue about the sheriff’s awards, authored by Deborah Swearingen, neglected to mention that Juel De Cicco, director of People Comforters of Evergreen, was awarded Individual of the Year by the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office.

    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?”
