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 needed, we are ... Full Story

Romney, computers and pornography

Romney, computers and pornography

        Opinion by David Pakman     During Mitt Romney’s campaign for the 2008 Republican Presidential nomination, he made an interesting comment about pornography. The comment came in Ottumwa, Iowa at the Hotel Ottumwa, where Romney said “I want to make sure every new computer sold in this country after I’m President has installed on it a filter to block all pornography.” This comment is fascinating for a number of reasons, and requires a multi-level ...

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 member, did ... Full Story

Congress fears the NRA

                    Update: Confirmed, Congress is Owned By The NRA by Paul Canning Last week, I reported on how a poll had found that the vast majority of Americans supported some restrictions on gun ownership.

Romney, a man of falsehoods

Romney, a man of falsehoods

      OPINIONS   Mitt Romney, a man of falsehoods  By Richard Cohen, Published: April 16 Among the attributes I most envy in a public man (or woman) is the ability to lie. If that ability is coupled with no sense of humor, you have the sort of man who can be a successful football coach, a CEO or, when you come right down to it, a presidential candidate. Such a man is Mitt Romney. Time and time again, Romney has been called a liar during this campaign. (The various ... Full Story

Republican Party Communists

Republican Party Communists

What Allen West Does Not Know About Communists and Congress John Nichols on April 13, 2012 - 8:17 AM ET Florida Congressman Allen West was wrong when he suggested that there were dozens of communists in the current Congress. Misled by crank websites, the out-there Republican from Florida said Tuesday, “I believe there’s about 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party… They actually don’t hide it. It’s called the Congressional Progressive ... Full Story

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

Stalin Invented ‘American Exceptionalism’

  How Joseph Stalin Invented 'American Exceptionalism' Rick Santorum and the rest of GOP presidential gang all have a man-crush. Considering he was an outright intellectual elitist, a shaggy-haired liberal, and -- horror of horrors -- French, the object of their adoration seems a bit surprising, but the French aristocrat Alexis de Tocqueville and his 1835 United States travelogue, Democracy in America, have surged into national politics this campaign cycle -- often linked to the nascent ...
