Don't let profit, politics trump our kids' safety

People who compare alcohol to marijuana are usually the same people who are attempting to minimize the dangers to our children as to its use. These are the same people who want to legalize a self serving agenda either to gain income from it or self indulge themselves with it.

Tired of city's wanton tax-and-spend behavior

Delta City Council members are trumpeting a familiar cacophony. They're begging a tax increase for familiar reasons, using similar justification and the same old rationalization.

Darker money ... darker outcomes

Recently I received my 20th full color campaign flyer from the campaign for Olen Lund for Senate District 5. As I leafed through my sizable collection of Lund material, I also noted that nine of the 20 were negative attack ads aimed at Olen's opponent, Kerry Donovan.

Don't be fooled by Tipton's claims

So, Tipton sends out a terrifying flier, "Diane Bush is a socialist!" Seriously? We have years of Diane's work in the state legislature to see she is no socialist.

Fund that ride in a fair way

Carlson, Clay, Ryan deserve praise

For somebody who doesn't own property within city limits and cannot vote in city elections, Scott Schaible certainly seems to know a lot about "the will of the people" in City of Delta.

Schaible continues to ignore the will of the people in his own special way.

Don't sell out to corporate oil/gas interests

I've been a farmer in Colorado for more than a decade and am proud of the business my team and I have built. Every year, we grow between two and three acres of vegetables to sell locally in the North Fork area.

Kerry Donovan has demonstrated her commitment

As a registered Republican, I have gotten nine different "Olen Lund for State Senate" mailers to persuade me to vote for Lund. Statements in these mailers bring up many questions. Such as:

As president of The League of Women Voters of Montrose County, and in response to Ms. Loretta Molitor's letter to the editor (Oct. 3), I wanted to clarify the League's role in the candidate forum hosted on Tuesday night.

Grateful for opportunity to hear from the candidates

I want to thank the Delta County Democratic and Republican parties as well as anyone else involved in hosting the candidate forum at the rec center on Oct. 2. Before the forum I didn't know who anyone other than Kerry Donovan was.

In one week we will be receiving our November ballots in the mail and there is a City of Delta ballot issue we have not really spoken of. This would be ballot issue 2-C and 2-D.

Tax question may be justified, but it's hardly fair

When it was brought to my attention that the ambulance service in the North Fork area was proposing a property tax to help fund their services, I was not happy. Who wants their property taxes increased for whatever reason?

Are you also guilty of a crime?

There is a new crime wave. I just learned about it, and also that I was guilty of being one of those criminals.

It's time to clean house in Washington

After eight years warming a bench in Washington D.C., that followed years in the Colorado State House, to hear Rep. Scott Tipton's campaign attack his opponent, Diane Mitsch Bush, as a "career politician" reeks of the most rank pile of desperation.

Marijuana is in keeping with our ag heritage

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.

A big victory for the West

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.

Tipton urged to focus efforts on renewable energy

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.

Energy policy and America First

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.
