    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.

    Clean energy creates jobs
    Editor:
    Clean energy is the best way to create jobs we need, and we need jobs now. Clean energy, like solar power, is already putting people to work — there are more than 5,500 solar companies employing more than 100,000 Americans in regions throughout the country — and the industry is one of the few American industries that is actually growing.

    Branaugh, Powers didn’t appear well informed at candidates debate
    Editor:
    Two candidates for Jeffco school board, Jill Fellman and Lesley Dahlkemper, really stood out as highly qualified and informed candidates at the debate at Columbine Library on Oct. 5. The other two candidates appeared not well informed and distant from the position they were seeking.
