Fear! A word used in one of last week's letters, warning us not to fear voting for the marijuana business to be allowed in Delta.
Several weeks ago I had lunch at Delicious Orchards where I noted a sign that warned of West Nile which Ed Marston apparently contracted. It could have been any of us but it was Ed.
Dick Gilmore's letter (DCI 9/5/18) purportedly about climate change was nothing more than a personal attack on Mike Mason, a hopeful candidate for House District 61. Mr. Gilmore's assertion that "it's one thing to muse wistfully on one's fanciful ideology while aging gracefully on one's 300-acre ranch..." struck me as ludicrous.
We, the undersigned, are writing to express our displeasure with the level of engagement from the Delta County Commissioners on issues related to the Bureau of Land Management's proposed December 2018 lease sale, and to ask that they request that the North Fork parcels be withdrawn.
Wouldn't it be nice to learn about the candidates involved in the upcoming election that could have direct impact on the residents of Delta County? David Jacobson, Democrat chair, and Roger Bentley, Republican chair, met and talked about an information forum to let the voters hear from all the candidates in one meeting.
In rereading my own letter of last week taking Mike Mason to task for getting climate science wrong, I found that while I may know the science I was totally misinformed about Mr. Mason's political race.
Mr. Wills seems to have a significant quantity of knowledge on climate change.
Colorado is the only home I've ever known. I grew up spending summers catching crawdads with the neighborhood kids at the lake, visiting friends at their mountain cabin and testing my horseback riding skills at Girl Scout camp. I'm a skier, biker and hiker.
As a retired educator of Delta County, I put my full support behind Democratic Senator Kerry Donovan in her run for re-election in Senate District 5. Sen. Donovan has showed time and again that she is committed to rural Colorado's best interests -- the best interests of the people of rural Colorado, to be clear, and not the corporate and political interests.
The Town of Cedaredge will join communities across the state Sept. 10-16 to celebrate Colorado Cities & Towns Week, a week set aside by the Colorado Municipal League to recognize town employees and volunteers, and to highlight the services those employees, and the town, offers to our citizens every day.
Hats off to Delta's first responders -- dispatchers, police officers and EMTs. Their quick response to an emergency situation very early Wednesday, Aug. 22, displayed very caring and professional actions that are much appreciated.
Mike Mason's letter (DCI 8/29) about climate change was more than a little disturbing because this is a man who aspires to represent 80,000 Colorado citizens in the state legislature. It's one thing to muse wistfully on one's fanciful ideology while aging gracefully on one's 300-acre ranch, but the rest of us need to deal with facts and reality.
September looks to be a month when energy and climate change due to human-caused global warming is on a lot of minds locally. Here in the North Fork there are multiple events coming up dealing with climate change, energy transition updates and modernization, and concern about natural gas development in our area.
Last week, administrator Robbie LeValley kicked off the county's 2019 budget process with a fact-sheet and slide presentation to commissioners and department heads. To some of the points made during the presentation: Administrator LeValley began the discussion with an overview of the current economic climate and included a few historical numbers.
Nathan Clay, Kevin Carlson and Chris Ryan want to put marijuana on the November ballot in order to generate revenue by legalizing it within "OUR" city limits.
Asinine was the word councilman Kevin Carlson used in response or should I say reaction to a question posed by Orval Proctor in an open forum discussion at town hall on Aug. 28.
Delta residents will likely vote on legalizing the sale, cultivation, and production of marijuana within city limits. And the prohibitionists are going to do their best to scare you into voting against it.
Recent reports of surge in coal production in the Appalachian coal fields. Amazing how fast a horse can run when you stop jerking on the reins.
There are lots of empty seats in our churches today. Christians who should be sitting in those pews are absent.
I have two, no three reactions, to the article "Timeline details marijuana votes and regulations" by Matt Soper (DCI, March 1). First the majority of the article is correct as it relates to the timeline of events and what occurred.
The Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule that was issued by the Obama Administration was one of the most onerous federal water and land grabs in history -- it undermined state water law and priority-based systems, inserted federal control over western water rights, and put decisions about our water in the hands of Washington bureaucrats.
I am writing to ask you to withdraw your co-sponsorship and support for HR 167, Stopping EPA Overreach Act of 2017, and instead concentrate your efforts on stopping global warming by bringing renewable, non-polluting sources of energy online as quickly as possible.
Since the OPEC oil embargo in the 1970s, America's energy policy has appropriately (though ineffectively) been focused on energy independence for decades. Now, with the fracking boom providing abundant natural gas (NG) resources plus some oil on top of it, the United States finally has the opportunity to, if not completely achieve, come close to achieving energy independence.
There have been many articles lately by people who disdain our current president. That doesn't bother me a bit.
What a travesty that the public at large has been deceived, yes deceived beyond comprehension by masterful propaganda. Unfortunately, this has been essentially a worldwide scheme backed by huge monetary gifts and orchestrated by a very successful but small number of politicians and scientists.
There seems to be quite the debate lately regarding our local ambulance service. I was very disappointed when our community failed to vote in favor of a mill levy for the ambulance personnel.
