Karen Stockley is the right choice for District 49

Karen Stockley is the right choice for District 49

Letter to the Editor: B. J. Nikkel is not the advocate for taxpayers and children that she claims to be. First of all, you don’t file to sue the Larimer County Sheriff’s office for $10 million putting the screws to the county taxpayers on the expectation that your son’s arrest charges will be reduced. Secondly, you don’t brag about the awards you have received for pointing out deficiencies in social programs that you have worked consistently to de-fund. Third, you don’t vote to cut ... Full Story

ASRM Blasts Colorado Amendment 62

ASRM Blasts Colorado Amendment 62

Urges Voters Reject It on November 2 Denver, CO - The American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) has called on the residents of Colorado to vote NO on Amendment 62 when they go to the polls November 2. Like a ballot measure defeated in 2008, Amendment 62 would give legal rights to fertilized eggs under the Colorado Constitution, and in doing so, would imperil vital medical care and eliminate or make unsafe important family building options for those suffering from infertility. “In ...

The Con

The Con

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Far be it from me to criticize people who want to start a new party to address concerns in our political system. As far as I am concerned, both major parties are too dependent on big money. They have both abandoned basic respect for others in their campaigning. They both have abandoned logic and reason in favor of emotional appeals. They both act as if they hate the other side. What I can’t understand is why the Tea Party should end up supporting the less ... Full Story

Getting to the bottom of 60, 61 and 101

Getting to the bottom of 60, 61 and 101

By Mark Hillman The debate over ballot measures 60, 61 and 101 has been anything but illuminating.  According to the propaganda, voters should: • Vote yes to punish government at all levels for more than $1 billion in higher taxes and fees enacted without a vote of the people by Gov. Ritter and statehouse Democrats. • Or vote no because "The Ugly 3" will trigger a "voter-approved recession" and put thousands of people out of work. Frankly, both of those arguments are overwrought.  ... Full Story

As the chief executive of the sheriff’s office, the Sheriff will represent this large agency as it coordinates with the other criminal justice agencies in our county, large and small.

Two Talented Candidates

Two Talented Candidates

To the Editor, Senator Michael Bennet and Congresswoman Betsy Markey are two of the brightest, most dedicated, most thoughtful, and hardest working legislators in Congress today. Both of them are extremely well-qualified, and both have an amazing grasp of the details and implications of the bills they vote on. Bennet and Markey have been in Congress only a short time, but already are known and respected by their colleagues on both sides of the aisle. They are leaders, rather than followers, ... Full Story
