Sheriff’s job is local issues

Sheriff’s job is local issues

Dear Editor, In our local race for county sheriff, a few believe that the candidate of choice is one that will stand with people “who plan to protect our nation at all costs” (Jeffry Aufderheide, Wellington, Coloradoan Letter to the Editor, July 3rd). Much is being made of concerns about the power of our federal government, our porous national borders, and our constitutional rights. These are expansive concerns we should all share with our state and national ... Full Story

Please vote for Justin Smith

Please vote for Justin Smith

Dear Editor: Our sheriff’s race seems to be filled with candidates with little to no experience, or experience that ended years ago. There is however one exception. Justin Smith is a current commander at our sheriff’s office and he has served there since 1991. He has worked as a patrol deputy, K9 officer, investigator, sergeant, and division commander over administrative functions, the jail, and operations. Justin Smith also obtained his Masters in Criminal Justice ... Full Story

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

First, I'd like to thank Mr. Bruning for 6 years of military service. Next, I'd like to thank Major Justin Smith for his 20+ years of Law Enforcement experience. Justin's credentials for the position of Larimer County Sheriff far outweigh those claimed by Mr. Bruning. Of course, if Mr. Bruning would decide to let people know what experience he had to offer from the missing 19 years of his life, we might be able to look at his experience levels differently. To us, and many citizens of Larimer ... Full Story

Smith, true lawman and public servant

Smith, true lawman and public servant

I’ve been watching the Sheriff’s race with some interest over the last several months and I have to ask; who is this Constitutional Carl that recently arrived on the political scene? I’ve attended candidate forums and speaking engagements and to be honest, I’ve yet to hear any real substance from him. He simply espouses the kind of rhetoric that we’ve all come to expect from aspiring politicians over the years. Once you cut through the rhetoric, he appears to be just ... Full Story

Justin Smith experienced lawman

Justin Smith experienced lawman

To The Editor: I’ve taken the last several months to study the Republican candidates for Sheriff. On one side, I see an experienced lawman, Major Justin Smith, who has demonstrated his commitment to public safety and to caring for his community. With experience in all aspects of our Sheriff’s Office, 19 years of dedicated service to our community, a record of fiscal responsibility and a both a bachelors and masters degree in criminal justice, he has obviously prepared himself ...

Pluto is not a “former planet”

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." I wish you had a comments section because I would have posted this in that section. Pluto is not a "former planet." It is a planet. Please do not blindly accept the controversial demotion of Pluto, which was done by only four percent of the International Astronomical Union, most of whom are not planetary scientists. Their decision was immediately opposed in a formal ... Full Story

Limiting Berthoud Volunteer Membership?

Limiting Berthoud Volunteer Membership?

There are some opinions blowing around Berthoud these days that claim the town needs a voted ordinance that would require a volunteer to have a primary residence within town limits for a year in order to serve on any advisory board or commission, period. I’m worried about this for several reasons. While some statutory requirements exist for commissions such as Planning and Zoning, there are none for other commissions. There’s a good reason for that: Each commission is very different, ... Full Story

Thank you from the After Prom Committee

Dear Editor, The Berthoud High School After Prom Event Committee would like to give a special thank you to all the volunteers for making this year’s APE another successful evening. APE helps to keep our kids safe. In addition to the generosity of long hours that our parents volunteered, many of them made donations of money. Thank you all for the kindness of time and money. We would also like to extend a big thank you to the following organizations and businesses for their donations of ... Full Story

Third Street a city dump?

What can be done about the mess Jones has on Third Street? It looks like a city dump. Why can't he put a fence up? It is getting worse. Guess we all can just use our yards for a junk pile. Lee Esterbrook tax payer in Berthoud
