State News: Reform of 19th Century Mining Law Holds

State News from Colorado News Connection March 24, 2009 Crested Butte, Colo. - Some in Colorado's high country communities believe the timing is perfect for a makeover of a major federal mining law. The law that governs hardrock mining has been on the books for well over a century; it dates back to 1872, even four years before Colorado statehood. That means federal environmental safeguards don't always apply to mining companies and, unlike the oil and gas industries, they don't have to pay ... Full Story

Spring is Here … Well, Maybe By Deborah Huth Price Berthoud Recorder This year, spring break brought with it the appropriate weather, but often this is not the case. Snowstorms and freezing temperatures sometimes overshadow spring break plans.  (more…)

Editorial: BERT's Tactics Raise Serious Questions

By Jamie Folsom Managing Editor Questionable at best. The recent moves by the Berthoud Economic Resource Team (BERT) to oust Town Administrator Jim White, and the decision of the Board of Trustees to give them more control over Town staff are questionable for several reasons.   The six individuals who signed a letter of complaint to the Board of Trustees have presented no verifiable evidence to back their claims that White lied to them or has shown “other serious character concerns.” ...

Letter from the Publisher: Disinformation and Ethics

After reading the letter from the subcommittee of the Berthoud Economic Resource Team (BERT) to the Town Board, I read the referenced Berthoud Weekly Surveyor article. After that reading and then comparing it to the article that appeared in The Berthoud Recorder, I find that I must question the completeness and accuracy of information being provided by the Surveyor to those involved in this conflict as well as those in the community. I certainly recognize the tactics. During my 30 years of ... Full Story

Molly Deserved Better

My computerized date book will remind me for eternity. In my judgment that’s the duration of penalty that the perpetrator of this crime deserves. If ... Full Story

By Rep. B.J. Nikkel (R-Dist. 49) and Sen. Mike Kopp (R-Dist.22) Making government transparent is a popular issue in the Colorado legislature this year where we’ve made several attempts to provide taxpayers with online access to Colorado’s various governments spending habits. Our bill, House Bill 1288, places Colorado on the cutting edge of transparency in state government, and if enacted, we will join over a dozen states nationwide that have already put state expenditures and revenues ...
