Smith Has Integrity

Smith Has Integrity

In this campaign season, we’ve been bombarded with questions of integrity, experience, past history. We crave a candidate with integrity, experience, and a history that is open and honest and without skeletons. We have this candidate, Justin Smith for Larimer County Sheriff. Justin Smith is a current high-ranking member of our sheriff’s office. Over the last two decades, he has worked as a deputy, sergeant, and division commander, has worked in Internal Affairs, and ...

Smith best choice for sheriff

Smith best choice for sheriff

Dear Citizens: The Larimer County Sheriff faces an upcoming budget crisis like no other before him. This budget crisis is based on reduced revenues, limited growth, and pending tax cuts. The current Commissioners have identified the need to cut 5% of the sheriff’s office budget for 2011 should certain circumstances prevail. The bottom line is that the budget for the sheriff’s office, along with all other county departments will be cut over the next few years without ... Full Story

Smith equals leadership

Smith equals leadership

I watched the news and read the newspapers over the last couple of weeks for the fire west of Carter Lake. This fire came on the heels of the tragic Boulder County fire. I noted the extensive presence and involvement of our Larimer County Sheriff’s Office. I was impressed with the professionalism and poise of Major Justin Smith, who assisted with command duties at the fire. Smith spoke with the media representing the Sheriff’s Office and their significant role in the fire ... Full Story

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
