    I will be voting yes on Amendment 67 in the November election.

    This amendment will establish personhood for unborn babies and will help to honor the life of Brady Surovik, who was killed just days before he was to be born.

    All life is precious, and if this amendment helps to overturn Roe v. Wade, then that’s all the more reason to vote yes. Roe v. Wade should never have happened because it is wrong to kill.

    Overcrowding in our schools is not a school district problem; it is a problem of OUR community. It is a problem that affects our property values and the economics of the entire community.

    Why would a business chose to come into our town if our schools are on split schedule or an alternative year round track?

    Got your ballot? Great, let’s get started.

     

    Governor

    If you’ve read my columns, you know I’m no fan of Gov. John Hickenlooper’s fence-straddling, middle-of-the-road efforts to find compromise on everything.

    After 32 years as a rural family doctor, I measure the value of a politician by their commitment to the health of our people. In Fort Morgan I met Cory Gardner. After hearing him criticize the Affordable Care Act, I asked him what he would do to insure the 800,000 Coloradans with no health insurance.  He had no plan.

    The op-ed from Mr. Janich that ran last month was confusing and wildly incorrect.

    First of all, this November, voters will be asked to vote for a bond measure to help build new schools as well as update and/or expand others in order to accommodate all the new kids now living in the district. It’s not a mill-levy override, as he suggested.

    From the day I was elected to Congress in 2009, I have been engaged in a fight to change the culture of Washington, D.C.

    Members of Congress are home now, campaigning for the upcoming elections. Their messages are all over the map, and for a good reason: they have very little to brag about.

  • A horse is a horse, of course, of course, but who can make sense of Amendment 68?

  • Editor,

    Working with law enforcement and the community, the former Adams County Board of Commissioners placed a moratorium on marijuana for unincorporated Adams County. Commissioner Chaz Tedesco said a review of this issue must be addressed by 2015.

  • The state of Colorado ought to be clear in valuing the unborn, and our legal system ought to impose tougher penalties for those convicted of attacking pregnant women and causing the loss of a fetus.

    Once again, a U.S. president vows to eliminate an extremist militia in the Middle East to make the region, and Americans, safe.

    One of the many privileges of living in a democracy is the ability of each of us to have an equal say about how we are governed. Through elections, our lawmakers can be held accountable for how well they fight for the interests of the people they represent.

    We don’t like to talk about suicide. However, more than 40,000 Americans die each year due to suicide, which currently is the 10th-leading cause of death in our nation. Locally, there were 71 completed suicides in Adams County. 

  • September is Suicide Prevention Month. But we need to talk about suicide prevention more than one month out of the year.

    It affects all of us, including our children, teenagers and young adults. Suicide is the third-leading cause of death for people ages 10 to 24 years nationally and claims the lives of approximately 4,600 teens each year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    While ISIS horrifically beheaded Steven Sotloff and James Foley, some Americans were being inconvenienced on airplanes. Most of us are spoiled and when we stop and think for a minute our inconveniences are small in comparison to so much else in the world.

    This editorial that follows is about the U.S addiction to foreign oil and how it imperils our economic and national security. We must and can end that addiction through a renewed emphasis upon various forms of energy development here within North America where we have reliable partners in Canada and Mexico, our own abundant energy resources, and, if unleashed, the entrepreneurial, spirit to use energy more efficiently.
