Don't let oil/gas fall to the same fate as logging

I thought the quarter page letter in the Sept. 12 paper was more comical than factual. Those people will think up so many things to stop progress in our country as possible.

Disappointment in Cedaredge

If you are thinking of buying a house in Cedaredge, be very careful were you buy it.

Our neighbors and I bought our property 24 years ago, in one of the best subdivisions in town, but things can change.

Marijuana is indeed a gateway drug

It's not about growing or selling marijuana, rather it's all about marketing the THC that's in it.

The higher the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the greater the risk of dependence and that's what drives the market.

Mini ice-age cooling explained

To answer Lon Kugler's question of last week about what caused, and ended, the "mini-ice age" cooling period, mainly in northern Europe, that went up and down from the 1300s and ended in the mid 1800s, I checked to make sure that I remembered my science teachers correctly.

Fracking vs. irrigation?

Oil and gas extraction nationally already uses 16 percent of freshwater in the US (http://www.anthropocenemagazine.org/2018/09/this-is-how-much-water-it-takes-to-produce-energy-in-the-us/).

Take a stand, Delta voters

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.

Ed Marston will be sorely missed

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.

The smear campaign begins

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.

N. Fork parcels should be removed from BLM sale

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of Land Management's proposed December 2018 lease sale, and to ask that they request that the North Fork parcels be withdrawn.

Candidate questions invited

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.

An apology for candidate mix-up

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.

A question on climate change

Mr. Wills seems to have a significant quantity of knowledge on climate change.

HD61 candidate committed to climate plan

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.

Our kids need Kerry Donovan

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.

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.
