“Son of Stim”

“Son of Stim”

          The President's "Jobs Plan" calls for another $400 billion dollars in BORROWING. Yes, that's what you call it when you spend money now and say you'll pay for it somehow over the next ten years. Oh, and by the way, exactly how does having workers and employers NOT pay into Social Security stimulate the economy? Isn't Social Security going broke one of the major concerns causing insecurity in this economy? And how again does increasing ... Full Story

Dear Editor

Dear Editor

          Cory Gardner is my Representative. I wish I could feel he represents my interests and concerns, but my sense when I contact him is that while his office may listen politely, what I say does not weigh at all in his voting decisions. Cory Gardner has an agenda that excludes those who need responsible representation. This was made even more clear to me when he voted in favor of the “Ryan Budget” and what it would have done to the uninsured, ... Full Story

Thank You for the Food

Thank You for the Food

To the Editor:     I would like to thank Berthoud Community Library patrons for their generosity in donating food for the Berthoud House of Neighborly Service as part of our adult summer reading program. Since May 23, you have donated 213 pounds of food. Summer tends to be a time when food banks experience fewer donations, so two years ago the library added, “Bring a Food Donation” to the summer program bingo card in order to help another important community ...

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

Calling on Gardner to End Big Oil Subsidies

  Dear Editor     On the radio, I heard a segment about Taxpayers for Common Sense and their ad campaign against Representative Cory Gardner. I don’t understand why Representative Gardner hasn’t taken a direct stand against tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. These large corporations are incredibly successful and profitable without the help of taxpayer money. According to the new Taxpayers for Common Sense “Subsidy Gusher” Report, from 2001 to ...

The voice of democracy

The voice of democracy

AT LAST! The voice of democracy is heard again in our land! Thank you, Mr. President. The U.S. keeps see-sawing between two political philosophies – democracy and plutocracy – so different that we no longer communicate. This takes a toll on our nation. Republicans are the plutocrats. They believe that the wealthy are smarter and more deserving that the rest of us, that they have earned the right to govern, and that government should be run for their benefit. Their golden age was the ... Full Story

Learn from these young Egyptians?

Learn from these young Egyptians?

To the Editor, I watched in amazement as the young people of Egypt peacefully arose to overturn their country’s dictatorship. They revolted against a system ruled by an elite few, where all the wealth flowed upward, and ordinary people had no opportunity to progress, no matter how bright, skilled or educated they might be. Is Egypt now ripe for theocracy? Not likely. Egyptians have closely watched the Iranian revolution and its aftermath. They see their Iranian counterparts ... Full Story

Family Planning

Family Planning

To the Editor: Dear God, When you told us to “be fruitful and multiply”, did you intend for this multiplying to go on, unchecked, forever? Perhaps it’s time for new orders, like “Stop! Enough with the multiplying! I gave you the brains to figure out family planning. By now you should have had the sense to use it. “You humans are spoiling my beautiful planet. You’re using up all the resources and filling the land and seas with garbage. Your wars ... Full Story

Kudos to the Moon Theater Company

Kudos to the Moon Theater Company

To the Editor: Kudos to director Kathleen Gruman and the cast and crew of Moon Theatre Company's just-ended run of You Can't Take it with You. Thanks for treating the Berthoud community to a funny and professional-quality production. As all of us deal with the effects of our economy's downturn and many are vowing to live more simply, Grandpa's line "You can't take it with you" has renewed meaning. Outstanding acting and directing, a comfortable venue, the chance to ... Full Story

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 ...

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
