Libya, Gaddafi the baby killer

  Opinion and fact By Gary Wamsley   While the response to President Obama's speech tonight will be varied and his enemies will no doubt attack him. Howerver, the response from the Libyan community is overwhelmingly in support. Here are some example of the "tweets" on the Libyan Youth Movement twitter site. "Americans standing by the Libya and its people set an example that will go down in history." "Great speech from Obama today. Clear, precise goals. ... Full Story

Slices of Life, Doggone good advice from the Cat

Slices of Life, Doggone good advice from the Cat

By: Jill Pertler Meow. It’s me again, the Cat. You may remember my discourse from a previous occasion. Today I’ve brought my vast cat intelligence to fill your ordinary day with a dose of feline insight. Lucky you. I’ll let you in on a little secret: I have the universe at my whiskertips and I’m not afraid to say so. Cats rule the world. Oh sure, humans pay the rent, but we control the house – and all the contents therein. Including the dog. Take my dog (and I mean that in ... Full Story

Imperfect Justice in Snyder v. Phelps

Imperfect Justice in Snyder v. Phelps

By Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson On March 2, the Supreme Court issued a decision in the case Snyder v. Phelps that illustrates the difficulty of balancing competing claims to rights and justice in our judicial system. The court overturned a lower court’s $5 million tort judgment against Pastor Fred Phelps of the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, Kansas, for invasion of privacy and inflicting emotional distress on the Albert Snyder family. In case you haven’t heard, Phelps and his ... Full Story

Killing Civilians in Afghanistan is Terrorism

By Pat Kennelly Afghans expect Americans to see the terrorism they bring to this poor country in the name of fighting terrorism.

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

Slices of Life, A message to my favorite child

    By: Jill Pertler   Every mother has a favorite – or so the saying goes. Before becoming a mother myself, I wondered if this were true. A mother’s love is complete and unconditional, but not perfect. How can a mother love all her children equally? The answer is simple: she can’t. I am here today to come clean with each of my children. Ahem. Pause. Here goes. My dearest first-born child: I have something important to tell you. You suffered ... Full Story

Emission Tests in Larimer and Weld

Emission Tests in Larimer and Weld

If your car was in good working order, would it make sense to have it fixed anyway? The government is trying to fix something that isn't broken by forcing costly and time-consuming vehicle emission tests on residents of Weld and Larimer county. The program is taking money from Larimer and Weld county families to fund government bureaucracies and a business monopoly. If House Bill 1082 becomes law the vehicle emission tests required for gasoline vehicles in Weld and Larimer counties will be ... Full Story
