Letters

  • LETTER: Good Luck 4-H needs you

    What is 4-H?  The Good Luck 4-H club located in Adams County is a fun, educational club where you get to take place in all sorts of fun activities.  You can take part in many projects, such as animals from big and small, gardening, electric/electronic, model rocketry, entomology, outdoor sports, shooting sports, and everything else you could probably just about imagine. 

  • LETTER: Religious foundation key for good decisions

    Responding to the March 13 column “Ask A Therapist: How do I talk to my children about gender?”

    I read the response to the reader concerning how to talk about LGBT gender confusion, and I was amazed how complicated the letter from Aisha Henry was. 

    I did agree with her statement, “Creating an open dialogue gives parents a chance to share their own values and shape their children’s understanding.” For it is the parent’s responsibility to raise their children and guide them. 

  • LETTER: 4-H opportunities aplenty

     Dear editor:

    It’s11 time to stop putting off what you have been telling your children you will get done. Enroll your children in the 4-H program! Give your children an opportunity of a lifetime, an opportunity for them to pursue their interests, develop new interests, learn and develop new skills, become more self-confident and prepare for their future.

  • LETTER: Gift drive

      Highland Legends Apartment & Townhomes are excited to be, teaming up with the Suncor Boys and Girls Club this year in a Christmas Teen Gift Drive. Suncor Boys and Girls Club have been and continue to be instrumental in providing opportunities for teens to thrive. Despite lack of resources, their success can be judged from every smile that they are greeted with from these teens each day.

  • LETTER: New rule change could make homes more expensive

     Dear editor:

    Homes are expensive in Colorado, and affordability is a real concern. However, Adams County Commissioners don’t care. 

    They are proposing to make fire sprinklers mandatory in all new homes. This could easily add $10,000 or more to the cost of a new home. If your water is supplied by a well, installing a fire sprinkler gets more complicated and expensive.

  • LETTER: Martin deserves re-election

    Dear editor:

    I presently serve as one of three appointed members on our Adams County Elections Canvass Board. The Canvass Board reviews all post-election reports and is responsible for certifying the election. We’re granted full access to every aspect of the election and make recommendations on how to improve processes making our elections safer and more secure.

  • LETTER: Be sure to vote in the midterms

     Dear editor:

    In this time of a critical midterm elections, ask  yourself what do you really know about our 200-plus-year-old U.S. Constitution as written by our Founding Fathers in 1787 and the state of our nation today.

    As you reflect, ask yourself a second question. What your own assessment towards today’s U.S. congressional representatives’ and senators’ services as representatives of “We the People,” the opening words of America’s Constitution as written in 1787 by our Founding Fathers.

  • LETTER: All city parks need water

    Dear editor:

    I am a neighbor of Vernon Park. 

    Year after year I watch as the grass area there is allowed to turn brown due to lack of water. The drainage pocket park next to them is kept green and well-watered by the city.

    Do the disabled who live at Vernon deserve less than the drainage ditch for their landscaping upkeep? I think they have enough to cope with with their disabilities without having to live in a brown sea of grass surrounded on all sides by well-watered lawns.

    Can anything be done about this lack of care?

  • LETTER: A ‘no’ vote on Proposition 112

     Dear editor:

    Weld County is the largest oil and gas production geographical area in the state. The quality of life for thousands of employees would be destroyed. The impact is not just on the drilling rigs that you may see dotting the horizon. There are a myriad support services that are obvious and some that are not.  Truck drivers, oil field support workers after drilling like Haliburton,  pipe line workers, welders, mechanics,  the list is nearly endless, would all feel the impacts of this initiative if it passes.
