• EDITORIAL: 'I'm gay' censored from graduation

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Sat, May 30, 2015

    Graduation talks can test the First Amendment and highlight the country's cultural rift. They can rival the power of same-sex wedding cakes in fundamentalist bakeries. Look no further than Monument and Longmont to see how it works. The latest commencement conflict involves Evan Young,...

    Letters
    Published: Sat, May 30, 2015

    Who pays for this science? You recently ran an Associated Press article that reported on a protest about the GMO labeling issue. Of course, Monsanto and other corporate forces, including the Grocers Association, oppose this. One gets tired of the customary paragraph in these news...

    Published: Fri, May 29, 2015

    Sincere appreciation for troopers We were horrified to learn of the trooper cadet who died while assisting at a crash site. This prompted us to share a short story with you. About two years ago, we were returning to our home in San Angelo, Texas, in our motor home. We encountered...

    Updated: Thu, May 28, 2015

    Letters
    Published: Thu, May 28, 2015

    A time to remember heroes My wife and I were deeply touched by two front-page articles you published about the Air Force Academy Cemetery. On April 15, you paid homage to my classmate and dear friend whose remains were interred 45 years after his death in Laos. On May 24, you...

  • FAGIN: Too much tribute goes to Rome

    Barry Fagin
    Published: Thu, May 28, 2015

    Why do we in the provinces send so much treasure to Rome and then politely beg to get it back? I wonder about this every day, as I drive around the potholes and frown over the washed-out jogging paths in Colorado Springs. It's great to have our reservoirs filled again, but the...

    Letters
    Published: Wed, May 27, 2015

    Where is the U.S. interest? To say that Memorial Day elicits mixed feelings would be an understatement. It elicits only one feeling: anger. When I was a child growing up in the 1950s, Memorial Day was celebrated as an occasion to honor those fallen soldiers who had died for noble...

  • LETTERS: Still 'wicked' upset about losses; government functions differently

    Letters
    Published: Tue, May 26, 2015

    Still 'wicked' upset about losses I find it amusing that you would publish yet another baseless, one-sided Deflategate opinion in your paper, this one a hypocritical letter from Bob Simmons in the May 20 Gazette. First he takes a silly cheap shot at the New England Patriots...
