We would also like to extend a big thank you to the following organizations and businesses for their donations of ... Full Story

Jeremy missing, Family asks for help

Third Street a city dump?

What can be done about the mess Jones has on Third Street? It looks like a city dump. Why can't he put a fence up? It is getting worse. Guess we all can just use our yards for a junk pile. Lee Esterbrook tax payer in Berthoud

From Alex’s Cub Scout Leader

Greg Carter add these notes as a comment to Alex Sabado's obituary. I thought it appropriate to give his remarks a place on the main page. Nearly every seat in the beautiful sanctuary at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church was filled on Saturday morning. Family, friend, classmates, scouts in uniform, BMX riders and more turned out to say goodbye to Alex. Here is a remembrance by Greg Carter: “If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run ... Full Story

To The Editor: Justin Smith

The choice is obvious! Looking at the candidates for Sheriff, Justin Smith has my vote. Not only has he demonstrated his commitment to the community as a deputy over the last 20 years, he has gained the support and respect of his peers in the public safety community. In talking with Justin, here are some of the things that I found out. Justin has been a guest panelist for Leadership Ft. Collins, preparing future leaders for our community. Justin is routinely an invited panelist for the State ... Full Story

Letter to the Editor — Justin Smith is the right man

Justin Smith is the right man at the right time. I have known him for sixteen years and I can assure you that he is a man of character and conviction. Justin is a former neighbor of mine and I know firsthand about his commitment to the community and his experience. The Justin that I met in 1994 was a K-9 officer at the time. I had the opportunity to do a few ride-alongs with him and was very impressed by his commitment to service and the compassion that he showed for crime victims. Larimer ... Full Story

I found Justin to be an extremely knowledgeable and dedicated member of the Larimer County ... Full Story

Why I Voted Yes — Betsy Markey

Why I Voted Yes — Betsy Markey

Before I was a public servant I was a small business owner, keeping the books in the web development firm my husband and I started together. I crunched numbers, evaluated costs and always looked for solutions that combined good budgeting with good management. Every time we made a major business decision, we evaluated that decision on its own merit. That was the approach I brought to Congress a year and a half ago – weigh costs with results, and make decisions based on the facts – not ... Full Story

Letter to Editor from The Baldpate Inn

As a business owner in Larimer County for nearly 25 years, I’m asking you to join me in supporting Justin Smith to be our next County Sheriff. I had the pleasure of meeting Justin almost 20 years ago when he was a rookie deputy, patrolling the area around my business. Not only did Justin regularly stop in to make sure things were going okay and respond effectively any time we needed assistance, he’d even stop by after the end of his shift to share a cup of coffee and keep me company as I ...

To the Editor

My husband and I were constituents of Andrew Romanoff for the last five years we lived in Denver when he was a member of the Colorado House of Representatives. We met and spoke with him on the front porch of our Washington Park home where we had lived since 1970. Not a fancy home, ours, but one that had been built in 1912 and we hadn’t even begun to dream of remodeling. Andrew, nonetheless, asked if we would put a sign for his candidacy in our front yard. What impressed me about Andrew was ... Full Story
