    Crisis exists on the southern border

    Editor:

    I’ve heard it said that no crisis exists on our southern border. I know of two examples that support the claim that drugs are crossing the border, and that unsavory characters are too.

  • Rohrer: Take me out to the ball game

    Loyal Colorado Rockies fans watch as some of our best players leave to become New York Yankees. It’s obvious that the Yankees will just keep spending until they will once again hoist the World Series trophy.

    The top five payrolls in Major League Baseball are Boston at $203 million, Chicago Cubs $202 million, New York Yankees $189 million, L.A. Dodgers $167 million and L.A. Angels $166 million. The league average is $117 million with the Rockies coming in at $112 million.

    Electoral votes are important

    Editor:

    I would like to register my complete disagreement with Ms. Heck Doyle and her column on SB 42, which endeavors to award Colorado’s presidential electoral votes to the winner of the nationwide popular vote.

  • Romberg: Middle ground sought, but unlikely

    While they haven’t exactly hit the stretch run, the members of the Colorado General Assembly reached the halfway point of their 2019 legislative session Monday.

  • Webb: Take a peek into TRACER

    Several years ago I was attending the opening of a GOP Victory office here in Jefferson County. I got into a conversation with one person when a woman walked up to me with a big smile.

    She informed me: “I know how much you give to political campaigns. You are very dedicated.”

    When I asked how she knew, she told me that late at night when she couldn’t sleep, she got onto the Secretary of State’s website and looked up the contributions her friends gave to political campaigns on TRACER.

  • Doyle: Your vote matters with SB 42

    Over the years, I have heard a number of people express the sentiment that they don’t vote in presidential elections because their vote doesn’t matter. This view always has frustrated me because I believe that one of the greatest rights all Americans have is the right to vote.

    It is true, of course, that the candidate I vote for isn’t always the winner, yet that doesn’t stop me from continuing to exercise my right to vote and to speak up for candidates in whom I believe.

    Something to consider with new developments

    Editor:

    Commissioners, over the next few weeks and months you will be asked to consider three major developments in the Aspen Park/Conifer area for your approval. You will hear from applicants with good intentions that will undoubtedly raise issues of progress and growth to an area that is ripe for both.

  • Rohrer: Getting our community back

    If you’ve never played on an athletic team, you may have missed one of the great joys of life. It’s exhilarating to have teammates with whom you bond and with whom you share the goal of being part of a winning effort.

    One of my greatest joys was learning that I had made my highly competitive high school baseball team. I was so excited that I broke down in tears as I reported the good news to my dad.
