Courtesy of EarthSky A Clear Voice for Science www.EarthSky.org This evening, the fat waxing crescent moon shines by the planets Saturn and Mars in your southwest or western sky.

Tonight’s chart faces a different section of sky than where the moon and planets reside. We are looking eastward at the famous ... Full Story

Sheriff’s office explains wildland fire role

Sheriff’s office explains wildland fire role

  Wildland Fires Several newspaper articles and anonymous comments in "RH Line" of the Reporter Herald regarding the Round Mountain Fire in the Big Thompson Canyon prompt me to write this. It is obvious that the sheriff's role and responsibility for wildland fire suppression is generally not understood. Recent statutory changes further muddied the waters on the jurisdictional issues involved. By Colorado statute, the sheriff has always been the "fire warden" for the unincorporated areas of ...

House District 49 candidate Karen Stockley on NISP

Karen Stockley Candidate, House District 49 Berthoud, CO  Guest Commentary One of the biggest and most complex issues Colorado will be facing over the next 100 years is water. I’m Karen Stockley, candidate for State House District 49, responding to my opponent’s opinion piece glorifying the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP). I have studied this issue for many years, and I firmly believe the NISP project is one of the most damaging reservoirs ever proposed for Northern ... Full Story

Earthsky Tonight—Moon close to Mars. Venus, Mercury, Saturn nearby

Courtesy of EarthSky A Clear Voice for Science www.EarthSky.org Have you been watching the string of planets adorning the July evening sky after sunset? If so, you might have noticed that the order of the planets from up to down – Saturn, Mars, Venus and Mercury – has remained steady throughout the month. However, the moon’s position relative to the planetary line-up has been changing, with the moon now climbing this stairway of planets day by day by day by day! Yesterday evening, the ... Full Story

Nikkel and Conway articles nearly identical

Nikkel and Conway articles nearly identical

By Gary Wamsley Since plagiarism seems to be rearing its ugly head, especially where it concerns water issues, I was quite surprised when I read Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway's Guest Commentary about NISP, which appeared in the Denver Post and thought it sounded quite familiar. I looked at the Guest Column submitted to this publication by House District 49 Representative B.J. Nikkel and noted that it was almost identical. Neither of these individuals has made any statement that these ... Full Story

Additionally, the bumper sticker represents ... Full Story

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

To the Editor, Currently, all of Larimer County except Fort Collins is “represented” by three individuals appointed to their positions by a few conservative Republicans. They support the views of only the most conservative voters. We need broader representation. This year Rich Ball, a lifelong Loveland resident, has stepped up to offer that broad representation. He is running for Senate District 15, which covers all of Larimer County except Fort Collins. Rich was born into a Loveland family ... Full Story

NISP debate heats up

NISP debate heats up

Please accept this letter on behalf of Troy Bredenkamp, Executive Vice President of the Colorado Farm Bureau. In their recent letter about the Northern Integrated Supply Project, Save The Poudre’s leaders Gary Wockner and Mark Easter don’t use facts, but only distorted opinions to suggest NISP is a hazard to agriculture. They make the false claim that they represent the agriculture community in their opposition to this critical water project. It is unfortunate that Wockner and Easter must ... Full Story

Beware door-to-door con artists

Beware door-to-door con artists

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office would like to caution residents against door-to-door con artists.  These itinerant criminals known as “Travelers” and “Gypsies,” generally appear in the summertime and are often members of one family.  Annually these professionals collectively make millions of dollars off the vulnerability of older or unsuspecting Coloradoans. A FRAUD ALERT!  supplied by the State of Colorado Office of the District Attorney offers these observations on ... Full Story
