Today's Opinions

  • ‘A plea for equal justice’

    As a conservative columnist, I have always tried to focus on constitutionally based concepts of personal responsibility and accountability supported by the belief that our country is founded on the principle of equality of opportunity.
    My numerous columns always attempt to support these views with appropriate facts and historical connections thereby providing a somewhat logical and rational basis for the opinions. Given the very nature of Op/Ed columns, these positions welcome opposing views.

  • Colorado's Olympic talent reigns supreme

    Growing up in Steamboat Springs in the 1960s and ‘70s, the Winter Olympics were a big deal. We’d earned the name, “Ski Town USA” as more winter Olympians had (and still have) been produced in Steamboat than anywhere else in the United States. We all had everyday interactions with Olympic athletes, and I had friends who would become Olympians.

    Dobbs needs to check facts regarding stock market
    Editor:
    I just received the Jan. 24 issue of Canyon Courier. Upon reading Greg Dobbs’ opinion “Transforming the bully pulpit,” I couldn’t help but respond.

  • Winners and losers
  • Living life to the fullest in Colorado

    Saturday marked a milestone, of sort, for yours truly. The day — Feb. 3 — made it 10 years since I moved to Colorado. Pulling up to my in-laws’ house with my wife and youngest children awaiting me, my oldest son and the family dog as we hopped out of the U-Haul, completing our 1,700-mile, two-day trip just in time to watch — imagine this — the New England Patriots playing in a Super Bowl.

    Needing support for the MBTA
    Editor:
    Evergreen Audubon has just launched the Year of the Bird for 2018. We celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
    The MBTA made it unlawful to kill, hunt, sell or possess most of the native wild birds in North America. Before the MBTA, billions of birds were being slaughtered for food, feathers and fun. Some birds, like the passenger pigeon and the Carolina parakeet, became extinct because of the hunting pressure on them before the MBTA.

  • Finding the meaningful middle ground

    The first time I remember believing that a political event provided an absolute truth was after Richard Nixon resigned the presidency in 1974. Through all that Watergate taught us, the overriding simple truth to me was that sometimes the story about the story is more important than the story itself, and that people finding themselves in a scandal would be best served if they acknowledge their failures rather than extending the scandal by dragging out its final determinations and ramifications.
