What price jobs, Romney wants peons

What price jobs, Romney wants peons

    To the Editor,     Improvements in information technology have made it easy and profitable for American corporations to shift jobs overseas to the emerging (BRIC) countries . Our two major candidates for President have very different approaches to increasing jobs here. Both approaches will create jobs, but the jobs will be quite different. ROMNEY: Bring American salaries and benefits down to a level competitive with those in the BRIC countries. ... Full Story

Biosolids Use is Not a Common Agricultural Practice

Biosolids Use is Not a Common Agricultural Practice

        Nitrogen fertilizers have been used for hundreds of years. Cover crops and legumes to enrich the soil, as well as manure have been used for at least a thousand years. But the residuals from waste water treatment plants, located in industrial urban centers, have only recently been applied to land and have caused serious problems beyond nuisance issues. Hundreds of sludge-exposed rural neighbors have gotten sick, some with life-threatening illnesses; ... Full Story

Biosolids vs Right to Farm

The previous article on Biosolids was submitted as an informative opinion essay. It is a general information article and does not indicate that Biosolids are, or are not, being used in Larimer County, Colorado. Had it done so, the article would not have been published unless the person(s) using the product also had a chance to respond and give their point of view. However, there are always other points of view and  a local agribusiness operator has requested that we provide a link to the ... Full Story

A Catholic responds

A Catholic responds

        I received an email from my relative regarding our Catholic faith. The email contained a paid political advertisement produced by church members entitled "Test of Fire: Election 2012". I want to share my response: I believe, as our forefathers did, that you do not mix politics and religion. If you do, then the religious institution is indulging in political persuasion and should be taxed. I find it incredible in today's society that the church ... Full Story

Exchange Student host family thanks Berthoud Community

Exchange Student host family thanks Berthoud Community

  To the Editor     As the host parents of the exchange student who was recently in the news, we would like to offer our sincere gratitude to the community of Berthoud for their tremendous kindness and support. 
Our exchange daughter had been the victim of a very violent attack in Germany several years ago that was never reported.  She re-enacted that crime here in Berthoud as a cry for help. While we all wish that she had found another way to tell us what she ... Full Story

Little Thompson Water candidate

Little Thompson Water candidate

To the Editor: I am a candidate from South Loveland for the Little Thompson Water District board to serve as a voice for customers, including seniors, on future water policies and rate-setting including the issue of water for fracking purposes if it comes at the expense of other customers or leads to a rise in rates.

Kevin Lundberg vs the IRS

Kevin Lundberg vs the IRS

Editor’ Note: Senator Lundberg is trying to make “political hay” on a non-issue. It is true that approximately 400,000 non-profits lost their status when they did not heed the notices about the need to start submitting annual reports to the IRS. However, as a board member a local non-profit, I know that our treasurer received the notice and found it easy to comply and there was no problem. I continued making the reports after she retired. Another organization, of which I am a ... Full Story

The state of Cain in the modern world

The state of Cain in the modern world

    21 February 2012 Dear Editor: It is not just wishful thinking that states can live without the death penalty. Generally, states that do not have capital punishment have lower homicide rates than states that have capital punishment. People of New Testament times need to consider what Jesus did when asked about the legality of divorce. Jesus was aware of His present time and of what the law stated, but He referenced a time before the law was ever given to reveal ... Full Story

Freedom of expression & Heartland I

Freedom of expression & Heartland I

        My post on Heartland Institute has generated a great deal of comment both on the comment section and around the blogosphere. See Heartland Panics Over Leak: 71 Year Old Vet, Young Mom Fire Back at Threats. Most of the comments are positive, several are attacking, but I approve all that do not have offensive language. So far everyone has been relatively civil compared to what I read at other sites. I want to thank you all for that. Two comments ... Full Story
