By Daris Howard   I was practicing the 100 meter hurdles when a young man came running up to me. “Coach wants you in his office immediately! ” I hurried in, and found three other young men already there.

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

    Dear Editor,   I've been particularly disappointed in our Representative Cory Gardner. I can remember when Cory was running for office, he used to complain about how our congresswoman never did any town halls. Since Cory's swearing in,  he's had even fewer. I got a letter from Rep. Garden last week touting that his vote for the Republican budget plan was going to protect Medicare for people 55 years old and older, but what about the people under 55 years old? I deeply ...

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

  Dear Editor     On the radio, I heard a segment about Taxpayers for Common Sense and their ad campaign against Representative Cory Gardner. I don’t understand why Representative Gardner hasn’t taken a direct stand against tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. These large corporations are incredibly successful and profitable without the help of taxpayer money. According to the new Taxpayers for Common Sense “Subsidy Gusher” Report, from 2001 to 2008, the top oil and ... Full Story

Congress to Palestinians: Drop dead

Netanyahu's address to Congress demonstrated that he has no intention of making peace with the Palestinians. Opinion by MJ Rosenberg If anyone had any doubt about whether the Palestinians would declare a state in September, they can't have them now. On Tuesday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu delivered a speech to Congress that essentially was a series of insults to Palestinians and every insult was met by applause and standing ovations. In fact, Netanyahu's appearance ... Full Story

Slices of Life, Our house rules

Slices of Life, Our house rules

  Slices of Life By: Jill Pertler The title of this column may lead you to believe I entertain a lofty perception of my house – as in my house rules the universe. While that may be true (but not really), the “rules” cited in the title refer to a noun, not a verb. Rules: Directives involving the correct time to go to bed, the necessity of frequent tooth brushing and the value of vegetables. In other words, the things every kid detests. I penned the following tidbits of wisdom during ... Full Story
