Well done, election officials

I was privileged to attend the Nov. 7 election vote count as a watcher at the Delta County elections office. Having been a voter for 44 years, I really didn't have a clue as to how the counting process was carried out.

A forgotten good neighbor policy

A couple of years ago, the Cedaredge town manager, golf pro and golf course maintenance manager asked to speak with representatives of the two homeowner associations that surround the Cedaredge Golf Course.

The subject was the creation of a "good neighbor policy."

Craft fair proceeds go to local nonprofits

Thank you Mckenzie Moore and the Delta County Independent for showcasing the All Saints Lutheran Church annual craft fair. A couple of interesting facts were not included in the article.

Fact checking

It's clear from his recent letter regarding the Bull Mountain oil and gas development plan that Mike Roberts desperately needs a fact checker and some remedial lessons on science and government.

For starters, the proposed fracking project he supports is actually located in Gunnison County, not Delta County.

Kudos to U.S. postal employees

The next time you see you local mail person give them a thank you for all they go through to deliver your mail -- from the daily lifting of 70-pound tubs full of mail, dodging dogs, driving postal vehicles in every weather condition imaginable, and praying not to get rear ended each time they pull up next to your mail box on all the busy highways out there.

An 'old fogey' expresses his viewpoint

Let me say I do not condone any improper sexual conduct. I am not a prude by any means ... but are not the women of today's society, and I mean the last 50 years, inviting/enticing this conduct?

Help veterans organizations continue their mission

Veterans Day is Nov. 11, when we remember and honor those who have served and the 0.5 percent of the U.S. population now serving in the armed services. Currently they all volunteer and do so for many reasons but all know they are risking their lives to do what their country asks of them and to keep the battle from coming here.

Delta has been a great place to raise kids

Years ago, before Vally and I had any children, we took a couple of days away from college and explored western Colorado. We stopped for the night in Delta, both having the thought that this would be a cool place to live.

Commissioners foster the county's 'new economy'

After reading the DCI article on the grant awarded by the Economic Development Administration (EDA) to Delta County for the ENGAGE project, I want to thank our county commissioners for supporting this effort. As commissioner Doug Atchley was quoted as saying: "ENGAGE will be a game changer for Delta County" and will put "Delta County on the map as the place to grow great ideas and businesses."

The fight has just begun

Bike trails in the Dominguez Escalante NCA -- I can't believe that the BLM is considering this proposal. I recently applied for a right-of-way with the BLM to place a properly lit and properly displayed flag pole for an American flag at the Highway 50 Christmas tree site and was turned down.

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.

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.

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.
