    Libertarian Party better for this country

    Editor:

    I read the letter to the editor “Supporting Neguse for Congress” and got immediately depressed. Since when, in America, do we run to “be” something instead of running “for” something?

    Since when, in America, is being a career politician “living the American dream?”

  • Casting votes with thought and foresight

    By Joe Webb, columnist

    Negative campaigning is one of the more unfortunate facts of politics. If you say that is true because negative campaigning is effective, then you’re engaging in shallow thinking.

    The real questions, in my mind, about negative campaigns are what gives rise to them, why they matter in the election of a public official and what their consequences are.

  • We must uphold our values, culture

    Parents are often told that among the most important things to observe and analyze are changes to their kids’ attitudes and activities and with whom they interact.

    It’s often found that when kids disassociate themselves from their longtime friends and positive influences and relationships, they become more vulnerable to negative influences that can make them more subject to destructive activities and harm.

  • The president got the Korean talks going

    The news in the last six months that Korea is near having the capacity to hit our country with a long-range missile carrying a nuclear weapon has certainly gotten the attention of all of us. Not since the Cold War have we had the possibility of an attack of our country on our minds.
    The strange exchange of personal attacks between President Trump and Kim Jong Un served to further unnerve us, making the two leaders seem to be somewhat unhinged. To be sure, we have not witnessed similar interactions between an American president and a world leader.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
