  • LETTER: The holiday season can evoke many different emotions

     Though family traditions and cultural differences vary, Christmas is still observed by many as a time for remembering those special moments and special people who bring joy and meaning to our lives. It’s a celebration that has its beginnings in the past, yet shapes the present. Over the centuries it has established itself deep within the psyche of our Western world. Through pageantry, poetry and song, we are reminded once again of a humble birth and an extraordinary life that has influenced the course of nations for centuries. 

  • LETTER: Chamber silent auction a success

    Dear editor:

    Thank you so much for your generously supporting the Greater Brighton Chamber of Commerce. Your sponsorship and donations are the reason why our evening was a great success, and we thank you for your part in making it possible.

    We raised just over $3,000 from the sale of the silent auction items. These proceeds will help the chamber to continue providing our business community with essential tools and resources they need to succeed.  

  • 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.

  • 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: 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.
