Haworth Annexation

Haworth Annexation

To the Editor, As a citizen of the Berthoud community, I am increasingly concerned about the issues arising in our town. I am particularly disappointed in the Town’s process that led to the annexation of the Haworth property west of County Road 19. This property was outside of Berthoud’s Comprehensive Plan for growth when the Town Board enticed the owners to apply for annexation. The issue that I have with this annexation has nothing to do with the family who owns that land. To ... Full Story

They did not ask the taxpayers who own the property what they would like to see built there. It was purchased in 2000, but now the Town has other land for a rec center. The profit from selling the old property will be put in the rec center fund. The property is zoned for multi family (R-3), which makes sense close to the ... Full Story

Badge, license to kill

  Why Do Cops Who Shoot Unarmed People Get Their Guns Back? By Kevin Mathews  What happens to police officers who shoot unarmed citizens while on duty? More often than not, nothing. Even in the most egregious examples of misconduct and bad policing, officers are found not guilty in court (if they even stand trial in the first place) and are free to return to duty… re-armed to potentially cause more harm in the future. This pattern is a serious miscarriage of justice. By ... Full Story
