    Published: Sun, Jul 27, 2014

    Fourteen months ago, The Gazette printed my plan to end business fees. I later made major compromises. Liquor and medical marijuana fees and license filings, would remain, but other fees would no longer be collected. The annual "cost" of $400,000 was under 1/10th of 1 percent of City...

    Published: Sun, Jul 27, 2014

    Mr. Polis, end this crusade. That's a growing sentiment among mainstream Democrats who are dismayed by the continued support of U.S. Rep. Jared Polis for two anti-fracking measures he wants on November's ballot. Colorado's 2nd Congressional District is a safe seat for Democrats,...

  • EDITORIAL: New gun laws passed with exaggerated assumptions

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Sat, Jul 26, 2014

    Three state senators lost their jobs. A major employer abandoned Colorado. The governor faces a tough re-election bid that should have been easy. It's all because Democratic legislators took on guns in a state where gun rights are sacred on the left, right and all points between. And...

  • LETTERS: Corey Gardner for Senate; bad Springs drivers

    Published: Sat, Jul 26, 2014

    Corey Gardner for Senate It is my opinion that we should elect Corey Gardner to the U.S. Senate. I grant that his views on birth control need to be substantially changed or negated, particularly if we are to believe what Mark Udall has quoted Gardner as saying. However, it is unlikely...

  • EDITORIAL: Authorities should vet charges against Planned Parenthood

    Published: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    Published: Thu, Jul 24, 2014

    Thank you, right-wing friends Dear right-wing Americans: I have a challenge for you - I know you love a good challenge; isn't that why we started two unnecessary wars during the Bush administration? You stop fixating on the word "Obama" for one hour and we free thinkers will promise...

    Updated: Wed, Jul 23, 2014

    This past week, Live Action released undercover footage showing two Planned Parenthood facilities in Denver encouraging what they think are underage girls to practice BDSM - bondage and discipline, domination and submission, and sadism and masochism. The staffers, in tax-funded...

    Letters
    Published: Wed, Jul 23, 2014

    Stormwater situation Instead of charging citizens $10 a month to raise money for fixing the failing stormwater system, how about we take all the ambition and monies allocated for the City for Champions. It is ridiculous that the city let it get to this stage. Same old story from our...
