Smith is In-Tune to be Sheriff

Smith is In-Tune to be Sheriff

I have been looking at and listening to the candidates for Larimer County Sheriff. Each represent a different political party, but only one clearly stands out from the other. Justin Smith has nearly 20 years of current experience with our sheriff’s office. Because his experience is current, he is in tune with the current state of law enforcement and the criminal justice field. He has both a bachelor’s and a master’s in criminal justice. Justin Smith has the desire and ability to learn ... Full Story

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Support Senator Kevin Lundberg

Your vote for Senator Kevin Lundberg is a vote for “common sense in government.” Kevin is against tax increases and the current level of government spending.  He knows that individual citizens make better decisions spending their money than bureaucrats. He knows that citizens are taxed enough already, and he supports the proposed initiatives that would cut fees and taxes on income and property, and limit government borrowing. Kevin strongly supports education, families and our ... Full Story

Seeking One Principled Person from Each Side of the

By Kathleen Rogers and Antonio Gonzalez On September 17, 1787, a group of visionaries and leaders signed our Constitution. They were intent on creating a functioning government based on universal truths and extraordinary principles in an environment complicated by disparate regional economies and wildly divergent parochial interests. Back then, differing proposals for the shape of our government divided our country into two camps, but the necessity to address the need for a common ... Full Story

Shameless Exploitation

Shameless Exploitation

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Linda Petrie Bunch’s granddaughter, Mila, and my granddaughter, Aubrielle, star in the below video.  Aubrielle is on the left in the striped dress, and Mila is on the right.  As you can see, we have shamelessly exploited these children for political purposes.  Please let me know what you think.  Don’t forget to come back and read the rest of this email when you are done.  Please forward the video around.  I think it might ...

Justin Smith’s Website Good and Informative

Dear Editor: I just finished reviewing Justin Smith’s web site. I have to admit, I didn’t know much about him. I originally thought he would not have many new ideas, but I was very wrong to make those assumptions. He is a family man and with his wife, is raising two sons in our community. Justin values education, community participation, and most importantly, serving and protecting the citizens of the county. He has the support and endorsements of many community leaders. I really ...

Clear choice for health care

Clear choice for health care

As a family physician over the past 30 years I have seen the consequences of insurance delayed care, denied care, more frequent hospital admissions and deaths of the uninsured, and more illness related bankrupties than I care to remember. For many of our citizens the quality of care is unsurpassed, but currently 50 million citizens are uninsured with huge difficulties in accessing medical care. Voters! Look carefully at what Senator Bennett and Mr. Buck prescribe for you health ... Full Story

Senator Kevin Lundberg

Senator Kevin Lundberg has done an outstanding job representing “we the people” in Colorado’s legislature.   He believes that government should never become so big and powerful that it overwhelms our liberties with mandates, taxes, fees and endless bureaucracies.  He fought against the recently enacted car tax, the constitution-defying property tax increase, the elimination of the senior homestead property tax exemption, to name a few.  He has fought to rein in undisciplined spending ...

Our Economy

Our Economy

To the Editor, This is a fine mess we’ve gotten ourselves into. Both our unemployment rate and our national debt are ‘way too high, and improving either one will make the other worse. Spending money to increase jobs will increase our debt. Laying off government workers to lower spending will increase unemployment. More unemployment = less consumer spending = fewer new jobs. If we do nothing, we stagnate. The Obama Administration is struggling mightily with this inherited ... Full Story
