• LETTER: Questions about the results

     Dear editor: 

    I will take a “short pause” when someone can tell me why these good Adams County servants were not re-elected?

  • LETTER: Transition needs to be smooth

    Dear editor:

    Just one week ago, we started to see election returns come in for the state and counties that were surprising for some and disappointing for others. 

    Elections can be a rewarding or a cruel outcome for candidates and elected officials who have worked hard and, in many cases, put their jobs and future in the hands of the voting public. 

  • LETTER: A good night for Colorado’s future

     Dear editor:

    Colorado is on the frontline of climate change, experiencing catastrophic wildfires, droughts, unreliable snow packs, rising health risks and costs, and extreme weather events. Last week, parents and other voters supported candidates who will address climate change by acting on clean energy, clean air, carbon pollution, and protecting Colorado’s great outdoors as well as a safe and healthy Colorado for future generations.

  • LETTER: Shop local, dine local supports our small business heroes

    Every year after Thanksgiving, Americans kick off the holiday shopping season with big stores advertising deal after deal. Not long ago, Americans during the holiday season typically would visit locally-owned small retailers in a downtown area to purchase all of their gifts. Business owners would decorate their shops with lights and ornaments or create elaborate window displays to grab the imagination of a passer-by and encourage them inside. It was a magical time of year, and many of us still hold on to those memories today.

  • Five years strong and ready for more

    Dear editor:

    We are excited to share with you that this month, Richard Lambert Foundation has been serving our community for five years. We are so blessed to have the support to provide a place for others who are struggling with loss.

    Personally, it's a bittersweet milestone because it feels like just yesterday we lost our son; however, it feels like a lifetime ago that I haven't been able to talk to Richard, hear his voice, see his handsome face, hug him, give him a kiss or wake up to a text that says "good morning beautiful."

  • LETTER: National Land and Water Conservation fund in jeopardy

    Dear editor:

    If Congress doesn’t act to save it, we could lose one of the best federal programs keeping kids healthy – The Land and Water Conservation Fund.

    LWCF uses funds from offshore energy development, not taxes, to protect natural areas, cultural heritage and access to recreational opportunities.

  • LETTER: Boys & Girls Club ‘invested in well-being’ of community

    Dear editor:

    Boys & Girls Club of Fort Lupton is one of eight Weld County Boys & Girls Clubs which provides after- school learning and social experiences for kids in our community. Academic success, character and leadership, fine arts, healthy lifestyles and fun are only part of the experience.  

  • LETTER: Picture doesn't depict Christ properly

    Dear editor,

    I have comments regarding the editorial/opinion picture in the Wednesday, June 27, issue of the Brighton Standard Blade on Page 4.

    I am aware that the picture was not produced by the Blade but was allowed by the editor to be used in that issue.

    It seems to me that not much thought was given to or investigation given to the implication given on such a picture.

    It appears that the infant Christ child is identified as an immigrant, and I assume also illegal.

  • LETTER: Get ready for the pie baking contest

    Dear editor,

    The Good Luck 4-H Club was busy Saturday, June 16, getting ready for the 2nd annual Adams County Fair Old Fashioned Pie Baking Contest.  The contest is for the best homemade fruit pie.  

    Last year’s contest was a big success and had 54 entries and included classics pies, like apple and cherry, but also included not-so-common recipes, such as coconut and mango.  The contest raised more than $3,000 for the Brighton Rotary Club.
