    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.

    Pentagon budget shouldn’t be immune from federal cutbacks
    Editor:
    I noted that Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has been bragging about cutting the Pentagon budget by $1 billion over 10 years. This is much less than was agreed upon just recently when the president ordered a $1 trillion cut in the budget.

    Dear county commissioners and state legislators:
    Can you please follow the lead of Fremont, El Paso and Weld counties and pass legislation protecting all Coloradans from the new totalitarian provisions of “secret federal arrest and indefinite detention,” which were codified in last year’s bipartisan National Defense Appropriation Act?

    Positive reinforcement is a better training option for pets
    Editor:
    I’d like to add some information to an article regarding a veterinarian’s answer to a reader’s question regarding her pet’s coprophagia. While Dr. Dan gives some good advice regarding prevention of the behavior by picking up the stool, I believe that it would be prudent to supply your readers with an alternative method to modify a pet’s unwanted behavior.

    1st State Bank of Funny Money
    Dear Jeffco legislators:
    I hear that there is a bill afoot (sponsored by Ray Scott and Kathleen Conti) for the upcoming session that would establish a state-operated bank to dispense scarce state financial reserves to less-than-creditworthy borrowers.
    Could the money therefrom be used to bailout the likes of the recently closed Five Points restaurant?
