    Joyous explosion of color I don't know where my response should go about the awesome photo taken at midnight on New Year's Eve. (The Gazette, Jan. 2) How unusual it was to have taken the picture of the fireworks over Pikes Peak with the Waldo Canyon burn area in the foreground. The...

    Published: Tue, Jan 6, 2015

    Intelligent minds differ about the need for a war on drugs and laws against pot. Yet, few on either side thought state government would promote marijuana use with a slick, multimillion-dollar marketing campaign. It began Monday, just a year after Colorado launched the world's first...

    Showing support for cops Unlike the demands of the cop haters and race baiters we've seen marching and spewing their venom lately, I do not want a kinder and gentler police force in our country. I want everyone, black and white, to have a certain fear of, and more importantly, respect...

    Here's a prediction made with assurance for 2015: Fast-food restaurants will serve ever-safer, healthier, more natural, higher-quality food. It's not as if Washington passed a law to protect us from profiteers at the drive-

    What one word would you use to describe 2014? Three members of the editorial board came up with three different words: chaotic, dysfunctional, unstable. These words all are indicative of the kind of year we've had. When one of the biggest stories of the year is multiple beheadings,...

    Updated: Wed, Dec 31, 2014

    The left will kick off 2015 with another victory in its war on the poor. Starting Jan. 1, the price of eggs will soar as much as 70 percent in California, and some predict it will get worse. Even for those who can afford them, eggs will be harder to find. The dilemma will affect other...
