• LETTER: Giving thanks to the kindness of a stranger


    I would like to share an incredible act of kindness that occurred last month.

    I am a special education teacher with Brighton School District 27J. This year I have been assigned to work with the students ages 18 to 21 at the Transitional Learning Center. It is a program for special education students — usually those with significant needs — to assist them in transitioning from high school to adulthood.

  • LETTER: Mary Ellen Pollock for county commissioner


    It is with pleasure that I recommend Mary Ellen Pollock for Adams County Commissioner.

    I have known Mary Ellen for over 20 years and have always considered her to be a valuable member of our community. She is always willing to help and is quick to donate personally to worthy causes. She has always been easily accessible to all members of the community and has developed a true sense of what is important to Adams County residents.

  • LETTER: Holmes case highlights problems with criminal justice system

     The Colorado Criminal Justice System is flawed! How else can James Holmes , a confessed insane killer massacre 12 innocent victims, injure countless numbers, ruin lives, and now, almost two years later, he is still alive, unlike his victims.

    He is fed, clothed and sheltered, and probably will be for who knows how long while the court fights over whether or not he is as insane as he claims. 

  • LETTER: Mark Nicastle for Adams County Sheriff

    I am writing this letter in support of Mark Nicastle, Republican candidate for Adams County Sheriff.

    I have known Mark and his family for several years now and know him to be a person of great character with unarguable integrity.

    Like other citizens in Adams County, I am concerned about protecting our Second Amendment rights, the slow process citizens have to go through to obtain our concealed carry permit and the lack of a cooperative attitude the Sheriff has towards municipalities and their prisoners. Mark has outlined his fix to all of these issues and more.

  • LETTER: Currency reform action needed


    I hear elected officials talk all the time  

  • LETTER: School overcrowding a serious issue in Brighton


    Isn’t it a concern for anyone that our schools are filled to the maximum or over? Why are new schools not being built to alleviate the congestion? More and more houses keep popping up bringing more people to Brighton making schools dangerously over-crowded! The high school is populated so that my son can’t see in between people in the hallways. Isn’t being packed like sardines a hazard and risk everyone should worry about? God forbid a fire happens! There would likely be injuries and/or death from the stampeding!
