Reardon is polite, professional

Dan Reardon is doing his job. He does not make up the regulations, just enforces the requirements of the building codes. He has inspected our two-car garage with a shop, our remodel and our master suite addition.

City has benefited from Reardon's expertise

In response to Pat Sunderland's article, "City of Delta's building inspector draws fire," page A3 of the Sept. 13 issue of the DCI, please note the numerous times we obediently honor and recognize the "rules of the road" while driving around our fair city.

Don't let Delta go to pot

Regarding the marijuana petition circulating in Delta, I beg all of you: Don't let our beautiful town go to pot.

When the world is traumatic

Hurricanes. Earthquakes. Devastating fires and floods. Political strife. Racial division. Immigrants and refugees. War. School and workplace violence.

Thieves caught on camera

I built a bench and put it on the corner of Austin Road and 2100 Road, next to the Orchard City Town Hall, for school kids to sit on while waiting for the school bus. Wednesday night it was stolen.

It's best to prevent problems

One can very clearly see the difference in perspective if one compares the contents of my previous letter demanding condemnation of white supremacists and fascists openly demonstrating in our city streets, proclaiming white supremacy, advocating fascism, advocating antisemitism, and Mr. Locke's irritation at NFL football players "taking the knee" during the national anthem.

Why are citizens being kept in the dark?

Delta and Gunnison counties held a joint work session in Delta on Wednesday, Aug. 30, regarding several issues that were of interest to many of us: the North Fork Methane Work Group, the Gunnison Public Lands Initiative, trail connections between Paonia and Crawford to the Gunnison Area, the ICELab/Business Development/EDA Grant, outdoor recreation industry opportunities, the Gunnison sage grouse, and oil and gas updates. In spite of this fact and in spite of the open meeting Sunshine Laws of the State of Colorado, Delta County did not give proper 24-hour notice of this meeting.

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).

Boy Scouts pleased to be of service

We are Boy Scouts and we would like to inform you about Boy Scouts in Delta. You might know about us already which is what we hope.

Businesses should provide their own 'space to create'

Is it government's job to help provide a "space to create" for would-be entrepreneurs? That was a topic at the Paonia Town Council meeting on Feb. 14.
