‘Letters to the Editor’ Archives

Just 3 questions Mr. Tancredo

Just 3 questions Mr. Tancredo

Dear Mr. Tancredo, As concerned citizens and Republican delegates, we were able to meet, interview and vet many of the candidates who respected the caucus process enough to solicit our support in their bid for candidacy. Since you elected not to participate in that process, we feel that the following questions must be answered before you can be deemed worthy of support: 1.     You made a solemn term-limits vow to serve no more than three terms as a Congressman, not once but on ...

Smith has experience

Smith has experience

Dear Editor: The race for Larimer County Sheriff comes down to experience, plain and simple. It doesn’t matter what political party is involved, it doesn’t matter if no party is involved. What matters is whether the next sheriff is capable, qualified, and ready to lead now. We have three choices, the Republican, the Democrat, and the independent. One has many years of experience as a deputy, a line-level troop; one has some supervisory experience a couple of decades ago; one has ... Full Story

In support of Lundberg

Dear Editor: Our state is on the brink of a financial meltdown. Colorado has mirrored our federal government by spending more money than we have available. In our state Senate, we have a fiscal conservative, Kevin Lundberg, who has done everything in his power to put a stop to the undisciplined spending we have witnessed recently. He is one of the few who works tirelessly to get our state on a solid financial footing. Each of us must stay within our budgets; should be expect anything less ... Full Story

Smith Best Qualified for Sheriff

Smith Best Qualified for Sheriff

Dear Citizens of Larimer County: The office of sheriff requires minimum standards to perform the duties successfully, just as any other organizational leader should have. Education, professional experience, personal experience, and the respect of peers are some of those minimum standards. The leader of a sheriff’s office in this century should have years of law enforcement experience, management experience, leadership experience, educational experience, and the respect of peers ...

Brian DelGrosso

Brian DelGrosso

to the Editor; I am pleased to have met and gotten to know Brian DelGrosso and his family over the last year. Brian stepped up last August to fill the vacant House Seat for the people of Loveland. Brian has does an exceptional job for us. He has worked to bring not only common sense to the state house, but fairness too. Brian is a small business owner, he owns a pizza shop. Like all small businesses, he has felt the impact of the economic down turn and has had to make difficult decisions ... Full Story

Goodbye Jeremy and Debbie

Goodbye Jeremy and Debbie

It is with great sorrow that we say goodbye to Jeremy Roush and Debbie Hermance as they permanently take up residence in Massachusetts. While we rejoice that Jeremy has found such a great position that will make use of his culinary skills and background, we realize that their relocation is a loss to our community. Jeremy and Debbie have an attitude of grace and generosity that is rarely encountered in personal relationships and even more rarely found in business. We’re so ... Full Story

Yes, The U.S. is a democracy

Yes, The U.S. is a democracy

To the Editor, There they go again with their “the USA is not a democracy” nonsense. The Tea Party and 9/12 groups insist that we are a constitutional republic, but not a democracy. A republic is defined as any government that is not a monarchy. We have no king or queen; hence ours must be a republic -- like many others. China is a communist republic; Iran is an Islamic republic. What kind of “republic” are we? We have a constitution, so it’s fair to say, ... Full Story

Berthoud Library drops some overdue fines

Berthoud Library drops some overdue fines

As of August 1, the Berthoud Community Library District is no longer charging overdue fines on books; fines are still charged on overdue DVDs, audiobooks, and music CDs. District residents pay property taxes to support the library, and the Library District Board of Trustees believes in keeping any other fines and fees to a minimum. Now, when you have a book, or other library material, overdue 2 weeks or more your library card will be stopped until materials are returned.  When ... Full Story

Stockley is informed on water issues

Stockley is informed on water issues

To the editor: Some time ago an article written by Mark Lehan was published in the Loveland Reporter Herald, and last week it resurfaced in the Berthoud Recorder. I feel the public and Karen Stockley are entitled to an accurate response. The facts are that Karen has been an active and informed citizen on water issues for many years, and anyone including un-named officials at Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD)" should know that. If the NCWCD wishes to ... Full Story

Karen Stockley’s true water agenda

As some readers might not have been aware of it, Karen Stockley’s (Democratic candidate for House District 49) recent column was a show of far-left environmentalism pretending to be someone credibly qualified to talk about financial feasibility. Restated, she should just be forthright in that she opposes the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) purely on environmental grounds instead of using misleading costs and facts to make her point that the project is a fiscal nightmare to ...
