    Thanks for allowing me to be a conversative voice
    You know the old saying that all good things must come to an end, and we all know that change, although required, is seldom easy. With this in mind, the management of the paper has decided to discontinue my column, “Not Politics As Usual.”
    They have kindly afforded me this opportunity to thank all of you who have supported the column and the paper.  

  • Rohrer: We need more umpires in the new year

    I have a sort of mancave which looks a bit like a museum. In it are so many things that remind me of people, places and things that have been important to me. At the end of the bar is a collection of autographed baseballs and a little clicker which umpires use to keep track of balls, strikes and outs. Someone asked me what it was, and the question brought back memories of my first job. At about 13 or so I became an umpire, calling games for younger boys.

    Evergreen Kaiser closing was difficult decision
    We write in response to a Dec. 13 Our Readers Write submission concerning the planned closure of one of Kaiser Permanente Colorado’s medical facilities.
    Our members are at the heart of everything we do, and we take pride in providing high quality, affordable and accessible health care. The difficult decision to close our Evergreen facility was made after a comprehensive, thoughtful review.

  • Romberg: Considerable change awaits General Assembly

    When the Colorado General Assembly convenes next week, things will be considerably different than they’ve been for the last several years.

  • Doyle: Let’s continue the holidays’ season of giving

    It’s that time of year again when everyone is filled with good cheer, smiles abound, lights are twinkling and the delicious aroma of baking fills the air.  
    Throughout the year, our community demonstrates what a wonderful welcoming place this is to live. There are so many ways that we are offered to express our appreciation and how grateful we are to live here. There are more food, toy and clothing drives than I can count, whether they are to benefit local residents or those far away who have no connection with our community.

    Great column, but …
    Kudos to Steve Posner for his unusually positive commentary “Holiday healing” in the Dec. 5 issue. Very positive and uplifting.

  • Romberg: Changing history and hiding records

    As it has become easier to gather information about people over the Internet, concerns have been raised about how disclosure of earlier indiscretions can impact their lives. People with criminal records often find it difficult to rent a home or get employment. Those criminal records have been likened to scarlet letters by some advocacy groups who’ve argued that people who cannot move on from their crimes are more subject to recidivism than people who can move on with their lives without the stigma of their criminal pasts.
