    Letters
    Published: Sun, Apr 13, 2014

    Common Core bad for the children I was encouraged to see the letter from Pauline Hawkins stating that she would stop teaching in Colorado and move to another state because of the damaging effects of federalizing education, specifically the Common Core program. Hawkins has more courage...

  • LETTERS: Coach's record a curious story; delinquent landlord

    Letters
    Published: Sat, Apr 12, 2014

    Coach's record a curious story I am dismayed but not surprised that coach Scott Owens has been forced out at Colorado College, and I am deeply disappointed in Joe Paisley and David Ramsey for spending the month of March beating the drums for his dismissal. He won't remember it, but I...

    Letters
    Published: Fri, Apr 11, 2014

    Stop wasting your time and mine You folks in city government make me tired! Stop acting like spoiled brats and get the job done. The lot of you are supposed to be the new brand that takes action, makes decisions and gets the job done. You're sitting on more tax dollars than a working...

  • LETTERS: Older workers; City for Champions

    Letters
    Published: Thu, Apr 10, 2014

    Should be ripe picking for employers I am wondering when it was that middle age (translated as experienced) became a liability instead of an asset for gaining suitable employment commensurate with experience? You would think that a person in their mid-40s with over 20 years of...

  • LETTERS: Whole bill should be canceled now; demeans integrity of city's talent

    Letters
    Published: Sat, Apr 5, 2014

    Whole bill should be canceled now Why would a U.S. citizen choose Obama-care? Even though there are 40 million citizens who cannot afford medical care now, after the Affordable Care Act there will still be 30 million who do not have medical care. Medical care will be more expensive...

  • LETTERS: Let's be proud of Colorado; nation becoming poorer

    Letters
    Published: Sun, Mar 30, 2014

    Let's be proud of Colorado What's with all the negativity about the "Colorful Colorado" signs? I, for one, enjoy their quaint and rustic character. This is "the West," not L.A., Hotlanta, or Zoo York. The signs speak to our heritage and sum up perfectly what Colorado has to offer; a...

  • LETTERS: Mice and fish coming before people; column read like love letter

    Letters
    Published: Sat, Mar 29, 2014

    Mice and fish coming before people I remember Severy Creek Trail. I remember Waldo Canyon and the connecting trails on the north side of Ute Pass. And now I will also be able to say that I remember Jones Park. This area used to be a mecca for hikers before it was ravaged by fire,...

    Letters
    Published: Fri, Mar 28, 2014

    Maybe it's not the criminal Most like a good chase, because when the reward is received, it means more. Criminals on the other hand find joy in getting away. Ryan Stone, the 28-year-old who was arrested for leading police officers on a chase from Longmont to Lone Tree, is a classic...

    Stop texting and educate yourself "Historic Craftwood Inn in Manitou Springs closes, victim of recent fires and floods", says Teresa Farney. Hooey! The reason that fewer citizens as of late have been able to enjoy this local icon is our stinking economy, and after more than 5 years of...
