Letter to the Editor on Candidate for Larimer County Sheriff

Larimer County has a very important election this fall. The current Sheriff is term-limited, so we the citizens must elect a replacement and choose someone not just to protect us, but lead us and effectively run the largest elected office in the county.

Pluto is not a “former planet”

This is in response to your June 24 article titled: "EarthSky Tonight-June 24: Earth passes between sun and Pluto tomorrow."

When does home remodeling make financial sense?

When does home remodeling make financial sense?

Like most people feeling cramped for space – thanks to two growing children in our case – we weighed the plusses and minuses of remodeling versus moving to a larger home.
