  • Hicks: Our loss is Washington’s gain

    If you know Sal Christ, you know she’s not one to toot her own horn. She’s never been one who has wanted to be in the spotlight. But there comes a time when someone should take notice of what others have accomplished, and that’s the point of this column.

    A veteran journalist, Sal is leaving Evergreen Newspapers this week for a nine-month fellowship program with the American Political Science Association in Washington, D.C. Yes, Ms. Christ is going to Washington, and we here couldn’t be more happier for her.

  • We need divisiveness

    The recent Brett Kavanaugh circus has, in my opinion, drastically and negatively moved our political dialogue/process. We have been led by malicious, character-assassinating politicians into a dark place from which I seriously doubt that we will safely emerge in the near future.  
    We are now in a time and place where the new rules of political engagement are being written as we speak. Suffice it to say that we are now in the age of the Politics of Personal Destruction.

  • Ballot initiatives don’t deserve our support

    Two ballot initiatives that we’ll see on this year’s ballot are proof positive that people from a variety of political perspectives are more than capable of coming up with remarkably bad ideas.
    Opponents of fracking and people who want to restrict governments’ ability to take actions that restrict use of private property in any way — groups that you would be hard pressed to put in common — both have initiatives on the ballot that are much too extreme and should be defeated.

  • What makes America great

    By now, most of our readers know that I write a lot about the mess in Washington. As we watched the wonderful tribute to John McCain, we were also giving tribute to a country in which there is respect and honesty, and a sense of humanity.

    Jeffco axes county business tax
    Editor:
    The lead article in the Sept. 19 Canyon Courier concerns the Jefferson County business tax being axed. The article states:” The decision will cut nearly $7 million or 1.3 percent of the county’s budget. Commissioners Libby Szabo and Tina Francone — both of whom are business owners — felt strongly in favor of eliminating the tax.”  
    There is no mention in the article of why Commissioner Tighe voted against the elimination of the tax.

  • Understanding today’s globalists

    The Supreme Court’s nomination process, if nothing else, has proven that the Progressive Democratic Party, under the leadership of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, is one organized and effective party of the opposition.
