Letters to the Editor – 9-18-14

The ‘good guys’ win Whatever our generation, we have watched and read many tales of daring and triumph.  Our veterans, astronauts, scientists and other heroes whom we honor achieved great wonders.  We learned to believe that, however dire the challenges, “the good guys” win. That belief is both a strength and a potential weakness. Expecting […]

LIFT is a bad idea The current interest in urban renewal in Littleton has me a bit confused. What the Littleton Invests for the Future (LIFT) is suggesting is a scheme to redirect some of our tax dollars to developers for 25 years and would rob the current tax paying citizens in Littleton using Tax […]

Letter to the Editor

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.

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 […]

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

I chewed Coffman’s butt, but… As a veteran of some of the great battles of World War II – I landed on Normandy at D-Day plus 11, fought in the Battle of the Bulge, and crossed the Rhine – I feel unmistakable solidarity with the young men and women who through the generations have served. […]

Vote Fields for HD 37

I am supporting Michael Fields for House District 37 because we need a young face in the Republican Party, and Michael fits that mold.
