My fellow liberty loving citizens!

My fellow liberty loving citizens!

Carl Bruning, a close and trusted friend of mine, is running for sheriff of Larimer County with the sole purpose of defending our Constitutional rights from all threats foreign and domestic.

Can you afford a new car?

Can you afford a new car?

By Jason Alderman When I was growing up, car manufacturers made a big deal each fall about unveiling next year's models, literally shrouding them in secrecy under tarps in print and TV ads until the launch date. Car-crazy dads would then rush down to the dealer for a test drive. New models now roll out year round – and financing methods have gotten more flexible as well. Back then, many people saved for years in order to pay cash for a new car; today, most people I ... Full Story

“When They Dropped the Bomb”

“When They Dropped the Bomb”

"When They Dropped the Bomb," Remembering August 1945 By Dr. Paul Kengor This week marks 65 years since the United States dropped the atomic bomb. On August 6, 1945, President Harry Truman delivered a “rain of ruin” upon Hiroshima, Japan, with Nagasaki hit three days later, killing 100,000 to 200,000. Truman’s objective was to compel surrender from an intransigent enemy that refused to halt its naked aggression. The barbarous mentality of 1940s Japan was beyond ... Full Story

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Dear Editor, As a newspaper you all should be ashamed of your article on the Sheriff's report. You advertise the opponent's website to ballot issues 60, 61 and 101 and reference to the Post's slanted articles but nothing at ALL for the proponents. Do you always aim to show only one side of issues? As journalists you should present both sides or find another job as bloggers. Visit www.cotaxreforms.com to see how moderate and modest the three proposals are. Phased in ... Full Story

“Save the Poudre” responds to Club 20 support

This morning NCWCD sent out a press release saying that Club 20 had taken a position in support of NISP. I just got off the phone with Mr. Reeves Brown, directior of Club 20. Two things: 1. I asked Mr. Brown why his organization took a position without talking to us. He said he was not aware that we existed -- "never heard of you," he said. He was not aware there was opposition to the project. 2. I asked Mr. Brown if he knew that the Draft Environmental Impact Statement clearly ... Full Story

Carl Bruning is the best candidate

Dear editor, There is no question in my mind that Carl Bruning is the best candidate for Larimer County Sheriff. With a $43 million budget, the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office needs a leader with strong expertise in business administration. In addition to being a distinguished U. S. Air Force pilot commander, Carl has obtained a Master of Business Administration degree, and has successfully managed multi-million dollar budgets, dealt with financial crises, and provided ...

Missing the Point

Missing the Point

By Ken Gordon Dear Friends and Neighbors: I went hiking in the mountains recently with friends from college, (University of Michigan--class of 71--Go Blue!). The forecast was for rain. I said to Joe while buying rain gear, “I am not particularly superstitious, but it seems that the more preparations you make, the less likely it will rain. ” Joe said, “That isn’t superstition. That’s a proven fact. ” We were up at Crater Lake in the ... Full Story
