Turn the Tooth Fairy into a Teachable Moment

Turn the Tooth Fairy into a Teachable Moment

Practical Money Skills for Life  By Jason Alderman Thanks to cherished family traditions like birthday celebrations and presents from Santa and the Tooth Fairy, today's children are often bombarded with gifts from an early age.

Stockley is informed on water issues

To the editor: Some time ago an article written by Mark Lehan was published in the Loveland Reporter Herald, and last week it resurfaced in the Berthoud Recorder. I feel the public and Karen Stockley are entitled to an accurate response.

In support of Romanoff

In support of Romanoff

Dear Friends and Neighbors: The other day I was walking door to door for Romanoff when I knocked on the door of a registered voter who told me that she no longer votes. I have always maintained that if one is disgusted by politics one should participate more, not less, since how else will things change.

Karen Stockley’s true water agenda

As some readers might not have been aware of it, Karen Stockley’s (Democratic candidate for House District 49) recent column was a show of far-left environmentalism pretending to be someone credibly qualified to talk about financial feasibility. Restated, she should just be forthright in that she opposes the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) purely on environmental grounds instead of using misleading costs and facts to make her point that the project is a fiscal nightmare to ...

Are We All Ideologues Now?

Are We All Ideologues Now?

Dr. Gillis J. Harp August 04, 2010 New media have shaped our political culture. Some, like talk radio and all-news cable stations, are developments of older, established technologies.

Merriam-Webster defines it as "an often ... Full Story
