As a property owner in the area, when invited by postcard to an Urban Renewal Authority (LIFT) meeting during the summer, I was surprised to see how much of our fair city was to be […]

Students need to be held accountable, too In response to “The challenge of flat TCAP scores” I suggest that there is another reason for flat scores, ZERO student accountability.

Safeway surrenders It is like losing an old friend to have your grocery store simply close up and be gone. Safeway at Hampden and Happy Canyon is doing just that come Sept. 1. In the meantime they are not getting any deliveries so what is left is a large garage sale of items they would […]

Immigration and elections Colorado and the United States is experiencing a marked increase in illegal immigration this last two years. This has a negative effect on American job seekers as well as our public schools, hospitals and public benefits.

Same old pretense For more than 100 years, the label “progressive” has been used to imply visionary reform.  But that misleading jargon cloaks historic reality, for the so-called “progressive” program is not new or enlightened.  Rather, that design is as old as government itself.  From pharaohs to monarchs to emperors to führers, governments seek ever […]
