  • LETTER: Zero emissions standard a must

    Dear editor:

    Transportation is the No. 1 source of carbon pollution nationwide. Greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles contribute to climate change. As a Colorado mother, I want more options for clean cars to save me money at the gas pump, bring more electric vehicles to Colorado, and keep the air clean.

  • LETTER: Still waiting ... and waiting ..

    Dear editor:

     New residents to Brighton might wonder when Adams County will get light rail, the N line.

     “It’s in the planning process, and you will just have to be patient.”

     I heard this when I was the chairman on the RTD board of directors representing Adams County.

     The year?

     1977.

  • LETTER: Medicare for all may not be so bad

  • 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.
