Who is behind 60, 61 and 101

Dear Neighbor, Who is behind the Bad 3? They are trying very hard to make sure you don't know. And they're trying very hard to make sure you don’t know what damage 60, 61, and 101 would do to Colorado. Reporting this week in the Denver Post opened a window on the backers of these intentionally misleading, job killing measures as they attack the process of creating the "Blue Book," the state-prepeared voter guide.

School Board honors Breitbarth’s service to community

Wednesday’s Thompson Board of Education meeting began on a very special note. Quite apparent was the empty chair where Dennis Brietbarth normally sat.

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.

Phased in ... Full Story
