Unequal treatment is still an issue in Paonia

I would like to share my opinion on a recent episode in the history of the Paonia Town Council. Five members of the Town of Paonia's upper management recently joined in a complaint against a trustee.

Accentuate the positive

We don't have to look very far these days to see all of the negativity in our society. Just turn on the TV or pick up a newspaper and we are confronted with negative happenings each and every day.

We're lucky to have DCMH

How lucky we are to have an outstanding hospital right here at home in Delta County! I recently had a new knee replacement there.

Fracking puts our watershed at risk

David Ludlam's recent opinion piece (Eco-snobbery reveals contradictions and false choices) in the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel could be parody if not for real consequences that fracking, drilling and transport pose to the North Fork. Today it's our small farming community that is the sacrifice zone; tomorrow it might be your child's playground or a retirement community.

A marijuana co-op would benefit Crawford

We know that in the Garden of Eden, God gave us all of the seed-bearing plants on earth to use... "And God saw that it was good." Genesis 1:12. We also know that the Food and Drug Administration approved the medical use of THC in 1992, 25 years ago.

'Business as usual' costs property owner

Well, the City of Delta has done it again. They are one of the poorest cities in one of the poorest counties in the state of Colorado and yet they are very unfriendly to business.

Why does the county hold so much in reserve?

Over the past year, I've listened as representatives from many worthwhile organizations delivered their pitch for financial help to Delta County's Commissioners. Most have walked away with the same response, "Sorry, we don't have the funds."

Arts are at risk in Delta County

I am dismayed by the lack of interest in Arts Coalition of Delta County!

On Monday evening, Dec. 11, the Arts Coalition of Delta County board of directors will meet to decide if we will continue as a nonprofit organization.

Nullifying estate tax will further consolidate wealth

Repealing the estate tax is a heinous ploy to once and for all consolidate most all the wealth and resources of the planet into the consortium blood line of the very few. Wake up people.

Explain to me how doing away with the estate tax benefits the masses.

It's time to face facts

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.

Empty pews

There are lots of empty seats in our churches today. Christians who should be sitting in those pews are absent.

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.

Politics and friends

There have been many articles lately by people who disdain our current president. That doesn't bother me a bit.

The deliberate corruption of climate science

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.

Ambulance service is vital to our community

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.

Tipton's presence surprising; his answers familiar

Saturday I went to the town hall meeting in Paonia. Hopefully this report will be of interest to a few readers. What interested me was the following:

This is no time for complacency

I hope the public will wake up to see that the misguided Republican party agenda is to cut taxes for the wealthy and eliminate much-needed services for the public and the planet. Choosing this agenda equates to the public shooting themselves in the foot.

Tax exemption should be transferable

I'm responding to your article (Feb. 15) "Seniors, disabled vets eligible for property tax exemption." One problem -- even if you have lived in and owned your home for 10 years you can NOT transfer that exemption to a new or different home.

Because we can

You may march for stricter gun control, but you march in this country because you can. You may march for a right to free and affordable birth control, but you march in this country because you can.

Methane rule warrants support

Like many landowners in western Colorado we grow hay and a large vegetable garden. It is hard work, but being outside has its rewards.

Contempt order is still hard to understand

I want to set the record straight. The Delta County Independent misquoted me when they said that the courts had little concern for us (Appeals court upholds ruling on pesticide drift, page A3, Feb. 15).
