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

A Fact, Any Fact

A Fact, Any Fact

Dear Friends and Neighbors: I woke up this morning with a hypothetical conversation between me and a voter going through my head. Gordon: You know the people elect the University of Colorado Regents. I’m thinking it might be better if they are appointed by the Governor. Voter: No. Why would I want to give up my right to elect the Regents? Gordon: Okay, tell me one fact about either of the two candidates for CU Regent at-large. Voter: A fact? Gordon: Yeah a fact, any ... Full Story

That’s outrageous!

That’s outrageous!

That's outrageous! The claims made against Senator Kevin Lundberg by 21st Century Colorado, an arm of ActBlue, "the online clearinghouse for Democratic action," in six recent mailings, would have us believe that instead of being a caring, principled family man and state senator, Kevin is a monster better suited to scare us to death at a local haunted house later this month. But each mailing is based on a complete misrepresentation of Kevin and distortions and lies regarding his voting ... Full Story

Ball can get job done

Ball can get job done

Rich Ball should be elected to the Senate District 15 post. He believes in performance-based audits of government departments and incentives for them to stop use-it-or-lose-it spending gimmicks that can be wasteful. Results would have to be proven before budgets are allocated. As a former small-business man, he will help businesses bring jobs to Colorado. He has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity, Meals on Wheels, Rotary Club and many more. He will take his public-service ... Full Story

Magical Thinking

Magical Thinking

Dear Friends and Neighbors: Let me ask you a question. I want you to make a choice. Gas can cost either $2.50 a gallon or $4.75 a gallon. In order to have gas cost the lower amount, it costs 5601 American military deaths in the Middle East, and 39,991 wounded. Are you willing to pay this fee for lower gas costs? Did any of your elected officials ever ask you the question in this way? Let me ask you another question. You can have the government services that you are accustomed to. ... Full Story

Smith best choice for sheriff

Dear Citizens: The Larimer County Sheriff faces an upcoming budget crisis like no other before him. This budget crisis is based on reduced revenues, limited growth, and pending tax cuts.
