‘Letters to the Editor’ Archives

Thank You for the Food

Thank You for the Food

To the Editor:     I would like to thank Berthoud Community Library patrons for their generosity in donating food for the Berthoud House of Neighborly Service as part of our adult summer reading program. Since May 23, you have donated 213 pounds of food. Summer tends to be a time when food banks experience fewer donations, so two years ago the library added, “Bring a Food Donation” to the summer program bingo card in order to help another important community ...

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

Disappointed in Cory Gardener

    Dear Editor,   I've been particularly disappointed in our Representative Cory Gardner. I can remember when Cory was running for office, he used to complain about how our congresswoman never did any town halls. Since Cory's swearing in,  he's had even fewer. I got a letter from Rep. Garden last week touting that his vote for the Republican budget plan was going to protect Medicare for people 55 years old and older, but what about the people under 55 years ... Full Story

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

  Dear Editor     On the radio, I heard a segment about Taxpayers for Common Sense and their ad campaign against Representative Cory Gardner. I don’t understand why Representative Gardner hasn’t taken a direct stand against tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. These large corporations are incredibly successful and profitable without the help of taxpayer money. According to the new Taxpayers for Common Sense “Subsidy Gusher” Report, from 2001 to ...

Don’t Drink and Drive

Don’t Drink and Drive

Tomorrow, May 8, will mark the eighth anniversary of the horrible accident that took Todd and Robbie's life and left Patty from the animal hospital with permanent injury. In their honor, I am asking people to think and not Drink and Drive. Thank you. Joe Coons.

The voice of democracy

The voice of democracy

AT LAST! The voice of democracy is heard again in our land! Thank you, Mr. President. The U.S. keeps see-sawing between two political philosophies – democracy and plutocracy – so different that we no longer communicate. This takes a toll on our nation. Republicans are the plutocrats. They believe that the wealthy are smarter and more deserving that the rest of us, that they have earned the right to govern, and that government should be run for their benefit. Their golden age was the ... Full Story

Don’t drink and drive

Don’t drink and drive

Dear Berthoud I realize I am by no means a perfect person, however I try to be a good citizen in our community. There is one issue that irritates me beyond belief and that is the number of our fellow citizens who continue to choose to drink and drive in our town. Has everyone forgotten about poor Todd Peeples and the other boy who were killed in the spring of 2003? So, I have zero axe to grind with anyone here in town, but if you drink and drive ... park it ... and yes... call a cab, a ... Full Story

Learn from these young Egyptians?

Learn from these young Egyptians?

To the Editor, I watched in amazement as the young people of Egypt peacefully arose to overturn their country’s dictatorship. They revolted against a system ruled by an elite few, where all the wealth flowed upward, and ordinary people had no opportunity to progress, no matter how bright, skilled or educated they might be. Is Egypt now ripe for theocracy? Not likely. Egyptians have closely watched the Iranian revolution and its aftermath. They see their Iranian counterparts ... Full Story

Family Planning

Family Planning

To the Editor: Dear God, When you told us to “be fruitful and multiply”, did you intend for this multiplying to go on, unchecked, forever? Perhaps it’s time for new orders, like “Stop! Enough with the multiplying! I gave you the brains to figure out family planning. By now you should have had the sense to use it. “You humans are spoiling my beautiful planet. You’re using up all the resources and filling the land and seas with garbage. Your wars ... Full Story

Federal Judge rejects Miller’s challenges in

U.S. District Judge Ralph Biestline today rejected all of Joe Millers claims of election fraud. He also lifted the restraining order on certifying Lisa Murkowski as the winner of the Alaska election. It has been a long road as the Alaskan courts had already ruled against Miller and the federal court said he raised no issues applicable to the federal courts. In spite of the chain of losses, Miller still is contemplating his next step in his legal battle. The Anchorage Daily News has the ... Full Story
