  • What if I told you that the best white-knuckle thriller of the year was about a jazz band?

    And then what if I told you it’s one of the best American films of the year to boot?

    Why have GMOs never been labeled since first introduced in the 90s? Genetically Modified Organisms are now in most American foods -- with no way to know. Americans have grown sicker and more obese than citizens in all other developed countries. I’ve beaten debilitating illness only after many years of figuring out food ingredients. Regardless, I’m tired of decrypting labels, while most countries require American manufacturers to label GMO foods.

    As the election season comes to an end, we — like many others — have been bothered by the negative and often untrue advertisements about certain candidates. None have been more bothersome to us than the statements made about Don Quick, a candidate for Colorado Attorney General.

    To serve as a leader in government presents unique opportunities but can also be quite challenging.  It takes a person of integrity, determination and experience to make the decisions needed if a community is to be vibrant, alive and progressive.  This is especially true on the more responsible levels of government such as the county or state where the needs are greater and more citizens are involved.

    Here we go again…our state has become ground-zero for yet another ill-conceived and misleading scare campaign.

  • Dear Editor,

    I have three major roles in my life currently. The first is to be a good husband; the second is to be good father and role model to my children and to do my best as a member of the Board of Education for the families of School District 27J. 

  • Editor:

    I am voting for Jan Pawlowski because I have known her for at least 40 years. We worked together on the Brighton Softball Association. For at least 10 years we built and rebuilt the fields on Eighth and Southern.

  • Editor:

    Disappoint the Democratic Party failed to properly screen their candidate for Clerk and Recorder, Brighton City Councilwoman Cynthia Martinez.

  • Even the toughest political junkie gets tired of it all after a while.

    The never-ending stream of mailers, phone calls, TV commercials and sniping from party operatives on social media has made me sick of even thinking about our fine democratic process, and we still have another week yet to go, perhaps more if the tightest races become recounts.

    In 2011, Commissioner Erik Hansen joined the three-member Board of Adams County Commissioners, of which I was already a member. He came in with a plan to reform county government policies and procedures and have transparency. With enthusiasm, I jumped on the bandwagon with my second vote.

    My name is Wayne Williams, El Paso County Clerk & Recorder and nominee for Colorado Secretary of State. Seventeen years ago I first served on the Canvass Board overseeing elections. I saw firsthand the importance of fair and accurate processes. 

  • Editor:

    It is time for School District 27J to wisely utilize the facilities they already have. It makes no sense to close the schools for three months. It makes no sense to leave all those buses sitting idle in the sun and deteriorating for three months.

  • Editor:

    This November, Coloradans will have the opportunity to make history by voting “Yes” on Proposition 105 which requires labeling on genetically engineered foods. Colorado ranks as one of the most health conscious states in the nation, so it stands to reason that we would want to know what’s in our food. Sixty-four countries around the world including the European Union already have labeling. Why don’t we?

  • Editor:

    The best measure of a legislator resides not in what they say, but in what they do. Specifically what legislation they sponsor, vote for, and enact into law.

    By this measure, Sen. Udall has an excellent record in looking out for Colorado and the nation. He supported legislation creating jobs, advancing immigration reform, aiding fire and flood recovery, protecting women’s and veteran’s rights, and protecting civil liberties.

  • Editor: 

    I’m voting for Wilma K. Rose for Adams County commissioner, District 5 and I hope you will, too.

    I have known Wilma for many years and can say that when she commits to something she doesn’t give up.

    As a paraprofessional working with developmentally delayed children she was there for the child, frequently having to adapt material to make it appropriate and effective.

  •  Guest Editorial

    We, as citizens of Adams County, are interested in a more positive and creative approach in Adams County and we feel Wilma Rose, candidate for Adams County Commissioner, is the right person for the job. Wilma Rose, from Brighton, is trying to improve the image of Adams County with a unique approach to campaigning and leading.

  • Editor:

    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.

    My name is Fred Ramirez. I am a past candidate for Adams County Sheriff – the same position that Mike McIntosh is currently running for.

    After a very lively campaign with all the Republicans involved, Mike became the Sheriff candidate of the Republican Party.
