Senator disappoints constituent

As a retired naval officer who views active citizenship as a key value of democracy, I wrote to Senator Cory Gardner voicing my opposition to using Congressional Review Authority (CRA) to reverse the BLM methane capture regulation put in place during the Obama administration.

Event name is offensive

Once again we read the "Did you know?" Cedaredge newsletter expecting better and were disappointed.

Facebook post was not funny

So, to "celebrate" Earth Day, an employee of the Delta County Health Department thought it would be cute to post on his Facebook page encouraging people to burn a tire. At least he did not say you should invite your neighbors and your grandkids to roast marshmallows over the glowing embers filled with noxious gasses.

Communication is the key to trust

On May 2, Delta County Commissioners appointed two new members to the Delta County Planning Commission. These are important appointments especially during the master plan update project, which officially kicked off this past week.

Where are the defenders of our republic?

Grateful for quick response

On Wednesday, April 26, one of our townhouse units had a fire. We thank the first responders of the City of Delta for their quick answer to our 911 call.

A salute to correctional, parole officers

They are the largest group of underappreciated, under recognized, yet largest unsung heroes we have in our state. Every moment of every single day they place themselves in harm's way for the citizens of the State of Colorado.

American Health Care Act protects people with pre-existing conditions

One of my top priorities is to pass legislation to replace the broken healthcare system created by the so-called Affordable Care Act (ACA), with one that makes health care affordable and accessible for Coloradans. Too many people who are insured have premiums that exceed their mortgage payments and deductibles north of $6,500 that have to be met before their insurance even kicks in.

Remember Tipton's vote

It is critical that every resident in Colorado District 3 knows what "our" representative, Scott Tipton voted for in Washington. He voted to take health care away from all the working poor currently covered under the Medicaid expansion (149,000 Colorado families).

We're increasingly disconnected from nature

Wild child: As we reflect on the past, we tend to ask ourselves what things have changed since I was a kid? Was nature deficit disorder even a thing 20 years ago? Fifty years ago?

Public employees deserve recognition

Across the country and in communities like ours, government employees serve and protect us every day. Throughout the year, but especially during Public Service Recognition Week, May 7-13, we should gratefully acknowledge their service.

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.
