  • Jacobson reaffirms how I feel as a parent

    Editor:
        I was very much impressed by this article (Al Jacobson: “Role models shouldn’t be chosen by gender,” May 15). It made me feel like I was doing a good job as a parent.  Thank you for publishing Al Jacobson’s article. He has a wonderful way with words and he made me appreciate myself has a parent.  Please publish more by this man. He has a great outlook on our life and times.
        Thank you for your time and effort.

  • Graduation thanks

    Editor;
        On April 29, 19 teens from the community participated in the graduation ceremony of FRIENDS FIRST’s youth program (Quinceañera Program) at the Knights of Columbus Hall.

  • Cancer research study part of Relay for Life

    Editor,
        What if we could personally participate in research that might help determine factors that cause or prevent cancer? What if our involvement, and that research, ultimately leads to the elimination of cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations? What if we could make it so just one family never has to hear the words “you have cancer”?

  • Doing more with less is old for teacher

    Editor,
        As a third-grade teacher in the 27J school district, I am committed to the students of School District 27J and their families who entrust me with their children each and every day. I do my best every day to educate them. But over the last three years I have had less time, a larger class size and fewer resources to achieve that goal.

  • Petrocco for 27J board

    Editor,
        As both a senior citizen and a parent with two children in Brighton schools, I have had the opportunity to work with Donna Petrocco through the Brighton Boys & Girls Club and other community activities.
        Donna brings not only a compassion for all children in the community but a strong business ethic to maximize the financial needs of 27J.
        In these tough times we need someone with her compassion and business strength on the 27J board.

  • Trend makes her vote yes on mill levy override

    Editor,
        I am a business owner in Brighton, and I want to tell you why I am voting yes on the mill levy override. I have numerous professional contacts in Brighton as well as our neighboring communities. During our discussions, I have begun to notice a concerning trend.

  • Vote for our future

    Editor,
        In response to Alan Hale’s article regarding the property tax increase, I would comment that Brighton is hardly a hotbed of “urban sprawl,” but it did experience its first notable growth after building the reverse osmosis plant that removed the unsafe high nitrate level in Brighton’s water and combined with the city’s close proximity to Denver International Airport.

  • Where are the small businesses?

    Editor,
        As your front-page story in your latest publication states, Reunion has been  abuzz with the erection of the new King Soopers being built on the corner of Chambers and 104th Avenue.
        No doubt, it will be nice to have the convenience of a  grocery store at our doorsteps, yet I can’t help but feel like our neighborhood is growing and morphing into what every other suburb looks  like—cookie cutter.

  • Inadequate voter?

    Editor,
        As I read the letters, both pro and con, regarding the 27J mill levy override, I couldn’t help feeling inadequate regarding my inferior knowledge of the subject compared to a person who is just another parent. I figured it must be because he is a doctor and intellectually superior that he would be so well informed on all the facts revealed in his letter.
