The Northwest Board of Cooperative Educational Services organized and hosted a professional development day Oct. 10 on behalf of its six members and one associate member districts.
This letter is regarding our current policy for the Ebola issues that we are facing as a nation. No, I am not saying it’s scary at this time, but should we be more conservative in our procedures?
I usually don’t respond to a letter to the editor that comments on a letter I’ve written. I think I need to comment on Mr. Kevin Copeland’s letter “Fact 1st on Coal.” The hard truth is that the Twenty Mile coal mine is running out of coal to mine and several miners and railroaders better be looking at their future.
Nearly six years ago, the people of Colorado sent me to the U.S. Senate on a promise to bring Colorado common sense to Washington. With the nation reeling from two wars in the Middle East and an economy hobbled by a financial crisis, we needed a change.
Calling all wilderness lovers. Midterm elections approach quickly, and so does our opportunity to exercise our right to vote.
Opportunity that used to come here is passing us by. Good jobs that have supported our communities are being threatened, and some have left the state. We see economic numbers telling us that there’s pockets of good news, but in much of the state, families still are waiting for the recovery to show up at their kitchen table.
Despite devastating fires and a historic flood — despite 13 federally declared disasters — we have not merely survived; overall, our state has thrived.
It’s seemingly simple — check a button on the polling computer or fill in a box on the mail-in ballot. However, as we all know, the circumstances behind each of those boxes are often anything but simple.
Don’t you think that you have a right to know what’s in your food? In response to your editorial, “Our View: Proposition 105 is costly and confusing,” here are a couple of facts to help clear up some misconceptions about Prop. 105 and genetically modified organisms.
A good historian first will research all available information, then cross reference the data in order to concur that factual events indeed took place. This information should not in any way be infused with personal views or beliefs in order to make a political statement that might be construed as actual recorded history.
Steamboat Springs public schools are funded with our public tax dollars, and that money should be spent with transparency and accountability to the public.
In support of transparency and open government, the Steamboat Pilot & Today endorses Proposition 104, a ballot measure that will require Colorado’s public schools to negotiate collective bargaining agreements with their teachers in open meetings.
One would hope that truth and honesty would prevail in an editorial put out by Steamboat Today. That does not appear to be the case regarding your editorial on Proposition 105 being costly and confusing.
Hello, fellow Coloradans. I am running to be your next state treasurer. Many of you know that I have more than 30 years experience running two successful businesses, working in the public sector in the Departments of Treasury and Homeland Security and, of course, Congress.
It has been an honor to serve as your state treasurer for the past 3 1/2 years. Since taking office in January 2011, I have woken up each day focused on protecting Colorado’s taxpayers. Too often, politicians need to be reminded that your hard-earned tax dollars should be protected and not used as their personal piggy bank.
