Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Colorado primary a huge change for voters

    Your ballot for what is by almost any measure the most interesting primary election in Colorado history should have arrived in the mail recently.

    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.”

  • Status shouldn’t be tied to witch hunt

    As Colorado Democrats attempt to elect a Secretary of State for the first time since 1954, one of the things some people have tried to pin on Republican secretary of state Wayne Williams is too much cooperation with President Donald Trump’s ridiculous voter fraud witch hunt last year. Those charges are wrong and misleading.
