    Common Core standards won’t help our students
    Editor:
    Common Core state standards: You either love them or hate them. Personally, I hate them.

    Legislator’s firearm leaves Capitol denizen feeling unsafe
    Editor:
    Where I enter the Colorado Capitol, there’s a “No Firearms” sign and a metal detector. But not for Rep. Jared Wright, who left his firearm unattended in a committee room on Feb. 6.

    Liberal school board members are the ones who lack transparency
    Editor:
    In response to Ms. Trasky’s letter: The only bully here is you, Ms. Trasky. The best interests of the school board and the children would be better served if Lesley Dahlkemper and Jill Fellman stop whining to anyone and everyone who will listen. It seems they deliberately vote against ANY proposals by the new board president.

    Statistics on gun violence are appalling
    Editor:
    There are some striking numbers out there, and, no, I don’t mean Broncos stats.
    Six school shootings in 10 days; a mall shooting leaving 3 dead. Some 260 Americans shot and 86 killed every day, eight of those being children. But who’s counting, right?
    Well, I am.

    New school board: in the right
    Editor:
    Do you remember, not so long ago, when some folks, partial to brown-colored shirts and strange dance steps, said, “The bigger the lie the better, and the more that it is repeated, the better is the chance of it being believed”?

    New school board is actually more open than the old one
    Editor:
    In response to Greg Romberg’s column of Dec. 25: Maybe Mr. Romberg should investigate the actual facts.
    First, the board has had its own attorney. In the past, the hiring of said attorney was done behind closed doors with no public notice. We should be applauding the new board majority for hiring an attorney in public and increasing transparency.

    Humane treatment of prairie dogs is first step toward changing views
    Editor:
    I applaud Gina Writz’s efforts in the relocation attempt of the prairie dogs at the parcel of land at Wadsworth and Coal Mine. Sadly, the inhumane extermination and “bulldozing over” of prairie dogs is common practice in the industry. It is simply eradication by death. And, unfortunately, until the industry changes, we are stuck with its choices.

    A review of some traffic rules
    Editor:
    These are some issues facing area drivers. We have a good number of merge lanes at stop signs and traffic lights. Many people don’t yield when merging onto the road, causing traffic to slow or even stop. It might be a good idea to review some of these rules for many longtime and new drivers.

    A word of thanks to veterans

    Editor:

    The average citizen today, myself included, does not comprehend what our country’s veterans have endured. I feel the importance to help the public become more mindful of these incredible people.
