3 votes for Mr. Smith

Smith is a capable leader I have studied the race for county sheriff and researched the candidates thoroughly, because I know that it is important to choose the most prepared and the most qualified candidate to lead public safety in the county. I have to conclude that both of the major newspapers are correct. Justin Smith is the one and only candidate who is capable of leading the sheriff's department.

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.

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 ...

The Business Case for Fair Elections

The Business Case for Fair Elections

By David Brodwin This year, the United States Supreme Court reversed years of precedent limiting how corporations may spend money to influence elections. This decision will substantially increase the importance of corporate influence in politics—both in determining who gets elected and how they decide once they are in office. As executives, owners, investors, and business professionals involved in sustainable and socially responsible business, we must ask ourselves: Are we helped by ... 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 ... Full Story

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 ... Full Story

Ballot measures explained, letters verses numbers

Ballot measures explained, letters verses numbers

Ballot Measures for Dummies: 2010 “Yes on Letters. No on Numbers. ” The Colorado legislature has done something useful since the last election. All ballot measures in the past were called “Amendments” although some of the measures amended the Constitution, and some amended the statutes. This was confusing. Many people thought if a measure was called an “amendment” it meant that it amended the Constitution. Now, that is in fact, true. If a measure amends the statutes it is ... Full Story
