•  Dear editor,


    From my vantage point at the center of Commerce City, where I grew up, the changes I’ve experienced in the northeastern edge of the Denver Metro region that are related to transit have been staggering as they’ve unfolded over the years. 

  • Dear editor,

    What happens in Idaho in the coming weeks undoubtedly will not stay in Idaho. 

    What happens there could make a big difference in how much you pay for your health insurance – or whether you can even get insurance. 

  •  Dear editor,

    College is not always the right next step. That’s not something you probably hear often, and when you do, you might think, “it is if I want to make a living and become somebody!”

     Among other things, the holidays are a time of giving and receiving gifts. The question most often asked of people is, "what did you get?" Much less frequently asked is, "what did you give?" Invariably, the inquiries concern material gifts. Purchasing a gift can certainly be thoughtful and a wonderful gesture, especially when it's backed up by your actions.

    It is no mystery that the holidays can bring up depression, loss and overwhelming feelings. The effects are understandable; holidays bring about increased demands, pressure, financial stress and perhaps grief and longing, especially when we have lost a loved one.

    Read the polls. Donald Trump’s Muslim-ban proposal — supported by most Republicans — didn’t sink him, Ted Cruz is on the rise, and the GOP establishment has every reason to worry.

    The polls are in, and now we know for sure that Donald Trump didn’t go too far when calling for a moratorium on all Muslims entering the country.

    Not unless you’re among those who think that the very idea of an un-American, unenforceable ban is bad for the country, not to mention the Republican Party.

  • Dear Editor,

    I am deeply saddened by this senseless and shocking act of violence in Colorado Springs. This is a terrible moment not just here in Colorado, but throughout the nation. My heart goes out to the families of those who were injured and those who lost their lives.

  • Dear Editor,

    I was saddened by the events in Colorado Springs. The loss of life at the hands of a depraved and lost person is sickening. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the victims, the community of Colorado Springs and the Colorado Springs Police Department.
