    The soldiers who fought the Revolutionary War were our first veterans, the only cohort of U.S. warriors who took up arms to create — rather than defend — a country.

  • Editor:

    The duties and responsibilities of the Sheriff are very difficult and challenging. I’ve worked with both candidates for more than 20 years.  Only one of them has the education, experience, character and abilities to do the job well. That man is Division Chief Michael McIntosh.

    I am writing to add my name in support of Proposition 105, and to encourage other readers to also vote Yes on 105.

    Every time I read about an American corporation deserting our country to dodge its taxes, I think about my Uncle Billy. From a family of 11 kids in Pennsylvania coal country, Billy was a bombardier in World War II, shot down twice, the second time winding up in a German POW camp for 14 months.

  • Forgive me if you’ve heard this all before, but there’s an election on this year (today, in fact). If you haven’t filled out your ballot yet, here’s a handy reminder on some of the key races.

  • What if I told you that the best white-knuckle thriller of the year was about a jazz band?

    And then what if I told you it’s one of the best American films of the year to boot?

  • Editor:

    Why have GMOs never been labeled since first introduced in the 90s? Genetically Modified Organisms are now in most American foods -- with no way to know. Americans have grown sicker and more obese than citizens in all other developed countries. I’ve beaten debilitating illness only after many years of figuring out food ingredients. Regardless, I’m tired of decrypting labels, while most countries require American manufacturers to label GMO foods.

    As the election season comes to an end, we — like many others — have been bothered by the negative and often untrue advertisements about certain candidates. None have been more bothersome to us than the statements made about Don Quick, a candidate for Colorado Attorney General.

    To serve as a leader in government presents unique opportunities but can also be quite challenging.  It takes a person of integrity, determination and experience to make the decisions needed if a community is to be vibrant, alive and progressive.  This is especially true on the more responsible levels of government such as the county or state where the needs are greater and more citizens are involved.

    Here we go again…our state has become ground-zero for yet another ill-conceived and misleading scare campaign.

  • Dear Editor,

    I have three major roles in my life currently. The first is to be a good husband; the second is to be good father and role model to my children and to do my best as a member of the Board of Education for the families of School District 27J. 

  • Editor:

    I am voting for Jan Pawlowski because I have known her for at least 40 years. We worked together on the Brighton Softball Association. For at least 10 years we built and rebuilt the fields on Eighth and Southern.

  • Editor:

    Disappoint the Democratic Party failed to properly screen their candidate for Clerk and Recorder, Brighton City Councilwoman Cynthia Martinez.

  • Even the toughest political junkie gets tired of it all after a while.

    The never-ending stream of mailers, phone calls, TV commercials and sniping from party operatives on social media has made me sick of even thinking about our fine democratic process, and we still have another week yet to go, perhaps more if the tightest races become recounts.

  • Editor:

    In 2011, Commissioner Erik Hansen joined the three-member Board of Adams County Commissioners, of which I was already a member. He came in with a plan to reform county government policies and procedures and have transparency. With enthusiasm, I jumped on the bandwagon with my second vote. 

  • Editor:

    My name is Wayne Williams, El Paso County Clerk & Recorder and nominee for Colorado Secretary of State. Seventeen years ago I first served on the Canvass Board overseeing elections. I saw firsthand the importance of fair and accurate processes. 

  • Editor:

    It is time for School District 27J to wisely utilize the facilities they already have. It makes no sense to close the schools for three months. It makes no sense to leave all those buses sitting idle in the sun and deteriorating for three months.
