• LETTER: GMO labeling no good for Coloradans, Americans


    Coloradans made the right choice when they rejected mandatory GMO labeling last November. 

    Nevertheless, a stubborn fringe continues pursuing labeling mandates in several states and at the federal level — even though scientific studies repeatedly conclude GMOs are safe to eat. 

  • Letter: Make sure tax dollars are helping our kids

    While I am retired from School District 27J, I continue to advocate for quality education for all children. In a recent conversation with another resident, I was told that an administrator was instrumental in securing a $6,000 raise for a secretary who worked in the district’s central office. The raise increases over a three-year period.

  • Letter: Many thanks to COMOM supporters, sponsors


    As we give thanks during the Thanksgiving holiday season for the many blessings we have been given, I would like to remind all in the community of the wonderful gifts of time, talent and treasure that were given to our community at the recent Colorado Mission of Mercy Dental Clinic.

  • Letter: Maybe victory won't be imaginary for 27J in 2016

    Imagine it is November 2016, and election results have claimed victory for a bond action to aid in financing quality education structures within the bounds of School District 27J.

    I don’t have to imagine 27J students walking along Bridge Street in Brighton campaigning openly for relief in their miserably overcrowded schools in November 2014.

  • LETTER: Stan Martin for clerk and recorder


    I recently attended Stan Martin’s campaign announcement/kick-off. Stan is running for Adams County Clerk and Recorder. During this event, I learned Stan is a third-generation Adams County native born in Brighton, graduate of CSU, small-business owner with over 23 years corporate management, business and customer service experience.

  • LETTER: Giving thanks to the kindness of a stranger


    I would like to share an incredible act of kindness that occurred last month.

    I am a special-education teacher with Brighton School District 27J. This year I have been assigned to work with the students ages 18 to 21 at the Transitional Learning Center. It is a program for special education students — usually those with significant needs — to assist them in transitioning from high school to adulthood.

  • LETTER: Mary Ellen Pollock for county commissioner


    It is with pleasure that I recommend Mary Ellen Pollock for Adams County commissioner.

    I have known Mary Ellen for over 20 years and have always considered her to be a valuable member of our community. She is always willing to help and is quick to donate personally to worthy causes. She has always been easily accessible to all members of the community and has developed a true sense of what is important to Adams County residents.

  • LETTER: Wilma Rose for Adams County Commissioner


    We are interested in a more positive and creative approach in Adams County and 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.

  • LETTER: Pro-Keystone editorial misleading


    The guest editorial on the Keystone XL pipeline is way off base.

  • LETTER: School overcrowding a serious issue in Brighton


    Isn’t it a concern for anyone that our schools are filled to the maximum or over? Why are new schools not being built to alleviate the congestion? More and more houses keep popping up bringing more people to Brighton making schools dangerously over-crowded! The high school is populated so that my son can’t see in between people in the hallways. Isn’t being packed like sardines a hazard and risk everyone should worry about? God forbid a fire happens! There would likely be injuries and/or death from the stampeding!
