    Published: Sun, Jul 13, 2014

    Occasionally, issues come up that transcend political affiliation, where what is right for the people of our great state trumps partisan sparring. I believe that these job-killing proposals being pushed by Rep. Jared Polis present us with one of those moments, and it is in the spirit...

    Published: Sat, Jul 12, 2014

    If you asked average Americans if they were living under constitutional government, most would say yes. After all, our legislators all claim to obey the U.S. Constitution, and we have a Supreme Court that is supposed to uphold it. But to really answer the question, the term must first...

    The Gazette editorial
    Published: Sat, Jul 12, 2014

    Sen. Mark Udall has effectively played the moderate Democrat for the past six years. He knows representing the state isn't the same as representing his old liberal congressional district in Boulder. Today, the moderate facade is gone. Udall, desperate to improve his numbers against...

    Published: Fri, Jul 11, 2014

    City's IT can fix the potholes Well it seems that a new IT system is needed more than repairing the potholes in our streets. At least that appears to be the top priority for our strong mayor. I'm sure it will mean a new main frame and all new computers (you can't ask city employees to...
