    States attempting to undermine Voting Rights Act
    Editor:
    This month marks the 47th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, which outlawed discrimination in voting and has been instrumental in ensuring that citizens’ voting rights are protected from nefarious state election laws. Instead of celebrating, we have watched attempts to undermine this vital law in states across the country.

    In times of crisis, help is a phone call away
    Editor:
    The catastrophic wildfires and dangerously hot temperatures create the perfect opportunity for depression to set in. By now, many of us know someone who has been touched by one of the fires in Colorado. And simply turning on the news can be draining.

    Article on Republican debate was fair and unbiased
    Editor:
    A big thank-you to Vicky Gits for her unbiased reporting of the GOP debate between Loren Bauman and Justin Everett.
    I found it very refreshing to read a straightforward news story without the writer editoralizing. Maybe the major media writers could take a lesson from you about factual reporting without editoralizing.

    Everett’s stances on several issues indicate he is a true conservative
    Editor:
    Last Tuesday I attended the Republican candidate debate for Senate District 22 between Justin Everett and Loren Bauman in an effort to decide whom I will support in the primary. The candidates differed on many issues; however, their stances on ObamaCare, the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights (TABOR), and illegal immigration stood out the most.

    What happened to manners?
    Editor:
    What a lazy society we’ve become. We’re so interested in our own little world, whatever suits us, that we don’t think ahead to how our laziness and inconsideration affect others. Decency and manners have gone out the window.

    Procedures on prescribed burns, fire bans need to be overhauled
    Editor:
    Notices of prescribed burns are inadequate, with no phone calls and perhaps no online warnings to localities in jeopardy. Very few signs are posted, and not at all major travel routes or neighborhoods, causing many unnecessary calls to local fire departments.
    If residents are properly warned, they can be more attentive to smoke and or possible flare-ups.
