• More teachers should explore PACE

        As a local educator, I am especially excited for the fall and the hope and promise of a new school year. I love settling back into the classroom, getting to know all my new students, and the fresh opportunity to impact the lives of kids.
          While teaching is my passion, I couldn’t face these daily challenges without the support of my colleagues, administrators and my teachers’ organization — the Professional Association of Colorado Educators (PACE).

  • Brighton needs transit help

        Brighton is finally growing, or moving, or sprawling, or whatever. That should finally  make all the advocates for growth happy, but where does it end? Who is in charge of the horrible traffic problem which can only get worse? The City Council, the city planner, the land developers?

  • In defense of Al Jacobson

        I have been a subscriber to the paper for a long time. I enjoy the columns by Al Jacobson, though I may not agree with all he writes.
        It is great for a newspaper to try and show different sides to issues facing us today.
        I have become somewhat disappointed with some of the recent letters asking to have Al removed because they do not agree with him. This is a major 

  • Kaul wrong about Will

        This is in reference to Donald Kaul’s comments about George Will. George Will is neither smug snor arrogant! His columns are insightful, informed and his piece on Detroit was on the mark. Granted, space dictated a less detailed picture than we would have liked. Forthcoming books will fill out the picture.
        George Will, along with Charles Krauthammer, rank as the foremost columnists of this generation.

  • Respect the right to express points of view

        In a recent paper, you printed a letter from Ms. Phillips of Brighton in regards to the columns written by Al Jacobson.
        I want to first thank you for printing all articles that provide viewpoints that are liberal, conservative and sometimes somewhere in between. It is our duty and privilege as informed and, hopefully, intelligent readers to read and discern the content of those articles.
        Reading is the same as viewing art. The individual perception is often very different.

        A total of 164 pounds of food was donated on that evening.
        Special thank you to Linda Young for supporting our pantry. She made it possibel for us to receive the donated food.

  • Support independent voters

        President Obama’s recently appointed Commission on Election Administration has begun holding public hearings around the country. This 10-member body is tasked with presenting recommendations to the president about how to “improve all citizens’ voting experience.” 

  • Jacobson’s name-calling distracts from real issues

        This letter is to present the following question. Why do you continue to print articles by Al Jacobson, who is so full of dislike, or even disgust, or a stronger word hate, that he cannot keep from calling anyone who does not think as he does a leftist/liberal?

  • Congrats to kickball tourney winners, sponsors

        The Brighton Legacy Foundation would like to congratulate the winning teams in our Kickin’ It 4 the Community Kickball Tournament. The championship team was Platte Valley Medical Center, led by Shane Bacon; second-place team was American Title, led by Aryn Lallas; and third-place team was the Brighton Youth Commission, led by Tawnya Russell.
