‘Letters to the Editor’ Archives

ACLU presents history of Amelia’s Tax Service

To the Editor: In late 2008, Weld County authorities illegally searched Amelia’s Tax & Translation Service in Greeley, seizing confidential files of thousands of taxpayers, although these authorities had suspicions implicating only one of these taxpayers. In a word, it was a classic fishing expedition. On January of 2009, ACLU of Colorado (ACLUCO) filed a class action lawsuit in state district court, arguing that Weld County District Attorney and Sheriff violated the privacy rights ... Full Story

Participate in the Census

To the Editor: The League of Women Voters encourages everyone to have a voice in government by participating in the 2010 Census. The census form this year is the easiest and shortest form we have ever filled out, so it will take only a few minutes to answer the ten questions. All the personal information is strictly protected by Federal laws and is not shared with any other governmental agencies. The Constitution requires that a census be taken every ten years. Every person in the 50 ... Full Story

This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!

Dear Editor: This year’s caucuses are coming up quickly!   I plan on attending mine this year to show my strong support for Andrew Romanoff for U.S. Senate.   After following Andrew’s time as Colorado State House Speaker and hearing him speak to a variety of groups, I feel that he is our best choice for U.S. Senate.  Here are just two reasons why. Andrew has pledged to stand up for our interests – not for special interests – and I believe him. The Coloradoan newspaper said of ... Full Story

Speaking out for Andrew Romanoff

This year Democrats are extremely lucky to have a choice of who will be their candidate for U. S. Senate. And they’re extremely lucky to have on the ballot a person of conviction who will stand up for Coloradoans; that person is Andrew Romanoff. Andrew has taken a stand that he will not accept PAC or corporate money in this election. Like many of us, he believes that money corrupts the system. In contrast, Andrew’s opponent is #6 on a list of legislators that have received the most ... Full Story

Dear Editor

For six years as a state representative, Kevin Lundberg advocated common sense energy policies to benefit all of Colorado. His consistent support over the years for safely developing Colorado’s plentiful energy reserves looks prudent today, when so many enemies of America control oil supplies overseas. Now a state senator, Lundberg continues to work toward energy independence and a cleaner environment, trying to reduce red tape that keeps locally made biodiesel out of Colorado filling ...

Things I’ll miss about Tom Vaughan

Things I'll miss about Tom Vaughan: 1. His approachability. Tom always made time for whoever walked through the door in spite of what his schedule allowed. 2. His humble demeanor. Tom had a way of imparting his knowledge and experience in a manner that didn't leave one feeling sorry for having asked. 3. His expertise. Tom's experience in research methodology, archival organization, artifact storage and conservation were exemplary. 4. His accessibility. Tom could be seen at any point ... Full Story
