    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.

  • 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.
