    RTD service cuts are wrong
    RTD radically cut bus service to and from Evergreen today. (Ironic since RTD provides no bus service at all to Evergreen on weekends.)
    Evergreen public transportation service was extremely limited to begin with: only a handful of buses to and from the city, weekday mornings and evenings only. These cuts make it nearly impossible for Evergreen residents to use mass transit to and from work and school.

    Thanks for paving downtown Evergreen
    I want to extend my thanks to Commissioner Tina Francone and 25th  
    House District Rep. Tim Leonard for their work with the Colorado Department of Transportation to place the paving of downtown Evergreen on their schedule and get it done. It’s been a long time coming, and the curb-to-curb paving is a great job. To get it  done in one night is super!

    Republicans racist? Wait …what?
    This letter is in response to Sara Gadeken’s nonsensical letter to the editor last week accusing President Trump and the Republican Party of racism.

  • Truth, justice and the American way

    My third and final suggestion to change our political process would be easy to do, but perhaps controversial. To establish a need for this change, I will try to convince my readers that a significant problem exists.
    My premise is that even the most ardent followers of the news have trouble sorting out fact from fiction. Wikipedia lists dozens of sites that are purporting to bring us the news but have been created to bring us fake news.

    Democrats did the right thing
    John Riddell asks how Democrats can support a party that in the late 19th and early 20th centuries contained Southern Democrats (Dixiecrats) who passed Jim Crow laws.
    Very simple. In the mid-20th century, the Democrats repudiated the Dixiecrats and, over their opposition as well as that of the Republicans, passed the Civil Rights Act and have fought to end racism ever since.
    Immediately the Dixiecrats changed their affiliation to the Republican Party, who welcomed them with open arms.  

  • Will hard Left policies play in Colorado?

    By now you most assuredly have heard of the new face of the Democratic Party, the rising star of the hard Left, one Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
    To say that she portends both an interesting challenge and/or opportunity for the Democratic Party would be quite the understatement. Indeed, liberal media outlets have been quite active in championing her Democratic Socialist platform, and promoting her support and enlistment of other Democratic Socialists for the upcoming mid-term elections.
