‘Letters to the Editor’ Archives

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 ...

My fellow liberty loving citizens!

My fellow liberty loving citizens!

Carl Bruning, a close and trusted friend of mine, is running for sheriff of Larimer County with the sole purpose of defending our Constitutional rights from all threats foreign and domestic. He has made a personal promise to me that he will do everything within his power as sheriff to defend our liberties from an ever encroaching federal government. Carl has also been endorsed by the likes of Tom Tancredo, former sheriff Richard Mack, the Republican Liberty Caucus, as well as the Rocky ... Full Story

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Dear Editor, As a newspaper you all should be ashamed of your article on the Sheriff's report. You advertise the opponent's website to ballot issues 60, 61 and 101 and reference to the Post's slanted articles but nothing at ALL for the proponents. Do you always aim to show only one side of issues? As journalists you should present both sides or find another job as bloggers. Visit www.cotaxreforms.com to see how moderate and modest the three proposals are. Phased in ... Full Story

Carl Bruning is the best candidate

Carl Bruning is the best candidate

Dear editor, There is no question in my mind that Carl Bruning is the best candidate for Larimer County Sheriff. With a $43 million budget, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office needs a leader with strong expertise in business administration. In addition to being a distinguished U. S. Air Force pilot commander, Carl has obtained a Master of Business Administration degree, and has successfully managed multi-million dollar budgets, dealt with financial crises, and provided ...
