  • Conservation, crop insurance and tax dollars

    The federal crop insurance program provides an agricultural safety net, and crop insurance premium subsidies were created to increase usage of these risk management tools. The federal government subsidizes, on average, 62 percent of crop insurance premiums annually.

  • LETTER: New urban renewal law brings more interaction between taxing entities

    From the press office of Sen. Rollie Heath (D-Boulder)

    Urban renewal projects clearly bring new life to blighted communities, yet the most equitable funding structures for the projects are not always as clear. (On May 29), Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law (House Bill 15-1348) designed to bring more interaction between taxing entities to the process.

  • LETTER: GMO labeling no good for Coloradans, Americans

    Editor,

    Coloradans made the right choice when they rejected mandatory GMO labeling last November. 

    Nevertheless, a stubborn fringe continues pursuing labeling mandates in several states and at the federal level — even though scientific studies repeatedly conclude GMOs are safe to eat. 

  • Letter: Make sure tax dollars are helping our kids

    While I am retired from School District 27J, I continue to advocate for quality education for all children. In a recent conversation with another resident, I was told that an administrator was instrumental in securing a $6,000 raise for a secretary who worked in the district’s central office. The raise increases over a three-year period.

  • Letter: Many thanks to COMOM supporters, sponsors

    Editor:

    As we give thanks during the Thanksgiving holiday season for the many blessings we have been given, I would like to remind all in the community of the wonderful gifts of time, talent and treasure that were given to our community at the recent Colorado Mission of Mercy Dental Clinic.

  • Letter: Maybe victory won't be imaginary for 27J in 2016

    Imagine it is November 2016, and election results have claimed victory for a bond action to aid in financing quality education structures within the bounds of School District 27J.

    I don’t have to imagine 27J students walking along Bridge Street in Brighton campaigning openly for relief in their miserably overcrowded schools in November 2014.

  • LETTER: Stan Martin for clerk and recorder

    I recently attended Stan Martin’s campaign announcement/kick-off. Stan is running for Adams County Clerk and Recorder. During this event, I learned Stan is a third-generation Adams County native born in Brighton, graduate of CSU, small-business owner with over 23 years corporate management, business and customer service experience.

  • LETTER: Giving thanks to the kindness of a stranger

    Editor:

    I would like to share an incredible act of kindness that occurred last month.

    I am a special-education teacher with Brighton School District 27J. This year I have been assigned to work with the students ages 18 to 21 at the Transitional Learning Center. It is a program for special education students — usually those with significant needs — to assist them in transitioning from high school to adulthood.

  • LETTER: Mary Ellen Pollock for county commissioner

    Editor:

    It is with pleasure that I recommend Mary Ellen Pollock for Adams County commissioner.

    I have known Mary Ellen for over 20 years and have always considered her to be a valuable member of our community. She is always willing to help and is quick to donate personally to worthy causes. She has always been easily accessible to all members of the community and has developed a true sense of what is important to Adams County residents.
