Voice against Berthoud Annexation

Voice against Berthoud Annexation

Dear Editor: The Town Administrator and Town Board made a huge mistake to pursue and pass the Haworth annexation in the face of strong public opposition.

First, on October 23rd, 2012, at the urging of Town staff, the Town Trustees opposed a Larimer County Rural Land ... Full Story

Drone pilot speaks out

I worked on the US drone program. The public should know what really goes on Few of the politicians who so brazenly proclaim the benefits of drones have a real clue how it actually works (and doesn't) By Heather Linebaugh Whenever I read comments by politicians defending the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Predator and Reaper program – aka drones – I wish I could ask them a few questions.
