  • The president got the Korean talks going

    The news in the last six months that Korea is near having the capacity to hit our country with a long-range missile carrying a nuclear weapon has certainly gotten the attention of all of us. Not since the Cold War have we had the possibility of an attack of our country on our minds.
    The strange exchange of personal attacks between President Trump and Kim Jong Un served to further unnerve us, making the two leaders seem to be somewhat unhinged. To be sure, we have not witnessed similar interactions between an American president and a world leader.

  • Parsing the silly season

    It is not bad enough that 70 percent of us are afflicted with “news fatigue,” but now we are solidly enmeshed in and totally bored with the “silly” season of politics fondly known as the primaries.

    While having a role in our election process, many would agree with me that things have gotten a bit out of hand. Certainly, the projection of campaign costs approaching $25 million should be a source of some concern.

    We must take care of our trails

    Editor:

    Summer hiking season is here. As 40-year Evergreen residents, we’ve seen the impact of increased usage on our local trails. We recently hiked a popular local trail and were dismayed at the amount of trash we found. As primary users, we must preserve our mountain pleasures for future generations.

  • Clowns to the left and jokers to the right

    My favorite news source is Michael Smerconish, who has a weekday three-hour news and political discussion show, on Satellite radio station POTUS. His tag line is the title of this article.
    He appeals to me because of his fairmindedness. He is a true centrist, and in the three or four years I have been an avid listener, I have not seen one instance of biased discussion of an issue. It’s obvious as I listen to his callers that they are open-minded and endeavor to see both sides of an issue before deciding how they feel.

  • Just please spend a moment thinking about it

    Given the daily challenges we all have to deal with, it is easy for us to overlook some of the important events that have contributed mightily to our current status. As with any historical relevance, a key component is not so much the factual occurrence, but rather the emotional connection.
    As time passes and personal accounts dwindle, this emotional connection becomes even more critical yet difficult to achieve. Yet its importance grows.

    Happy to see affordable housing option in El Rancho
    Editor:
    RE: Public split over El Rancho Complex
    I was so glad to learn that the El Rancho Affordable Housing Complex is in process thanks to the Jefferson County Housing Authority and proponents such as Evergreen Christian Outreach and Blue Spruce Habitat for Humanity. This is so needed in Evergreen as quoted by the AT HOME group. “People who work in Evergreen – teachers, nurses, auto mechanics – all deserve to live among us.”
