• Colorado Safety Net Clinic Week

    Dear Editor,
        In an effort to raise awareness of Colorado’s health care safety net providers, Community Health Services, in partnership with ClinicNET and the Colorado Rural Health Center, is recognizing Aug. 22-26 as the second annual Colorado Safety Net Clinic Week. Colorado’s Community-Funded Safety Net Clinics and federally certified Rural Health Clinics include 85 clinics located in 33 counties throughout Colorado.

  • Thanks, United Power

        Thanks, United Power, for managing power outages Monday and Tuesday night (July 18 and 19) in the Brighton area in a super-efficient manner.
        The personnel who were out in the field and their back-ups manning the phones were great.
        Not only did United Power accept our calls to report an outage, they kept us informed of the progress made in restoring power and finally a phone call to check that our power had been restored to our residence or businesses.

  • Book sale goal achieved and then some

         On behalf of Kidz Quiltz, I would like to thank everyone who helped us exceed our goal at the recent book sale at our workshop in Fort Lupton. 

  • Government is going bankrupt

        I am writing this letter to bring a serious issue to light. While local and state elected official go about their status quo of spending and complaining they don’t have enough money, they appear to have no clue or care about the national financial tsunami coming their way. What am I talking about?
        I am talking about the federal government going bankrupt.

  • New way of doing business at the county

        Three months ago, we promised the citizens of Adams County reform. Our seven-point plan is our promise that real change is coming.
        As our county grows, actions once considered acceptable are no longer acceptable. We once lived in a county where a handshake was as good as a contract and a person’s word was their bond.  But certain individuals have taken advantage of weaknesses in our system and manipulated them for personal gain.
        That stops today.

  • Don’t make teachers, public employees budget scapegoats

        It is despicable what some mayors and governors are trying to do to teachers and other public employees. Wall Street speculators, banks, and mortgage lenders caused the current economic recession, not teachers and other public employees.

  • United Power, why?

        I am very alarmed about recent actions taken by the United Power board of directors. The board decided to engage in a national search to find my replacement that cost United Power members tens of thousands of dollars. The board also raised my salary by $50,000 in order to attract the best possible candidate.

  • New faces, same old politics


  • Yes to Nicastle

        Over the last several weeks, there have been a number of letters written to the editor supporting the candidacy of incumbent Sheriff Doug Darr. Some of those writing these letters are not even residents of this county; nevertheless, they are telling us how to vote. Wonder why? Because they want to keep their jobs.
