    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.

    What is the school board hiding?
    Editor:
    With the beginning of the fall semester, why does the Jeffco school board now find it necessary to employ a sheriff’s deputy to keep the public out of earshot of its mumblings at its open-to-the-public study sessions?
    What is it trying to hide?

    The Bridge to Nowhere, Part 2
    Editor:
    I haven’t laughed this much in years. I just read the study that supported building the pedestrian bridge over Wadsworth Boulevard.
    Just Google “pedestrian analysis and bridge study.”
    Please go to the site and read the report yourself.

    A bridge too useless
    Editor:
    If you want to know what a “bridge to nowhere” looks like, we now have one! It is at the corner of Wadsworth and Bowles. It allows people in one shopping center to walk to another shopping center. So how many people want to do that? Did our all-knowing government do a survey to establish the “need”? Was that a “porkbarrel” project brought to us by one of our representatives or senators?

    Who are the suckers?
    Editor:
    I feel compelled to respond to a couple of letters that referred to me by name. One writer, in reference my objection to raising taxes, said: “There is not just a lack of compassion going on here; we’re being played for suckers, too.” In fact, just the opposite is the case. It is those politicians who promise us that more government spending will improve our lives who are playing us for suckers.

    Israel not responsible for Mideast strife
    Editor:
    Lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians cannot come through a unilateral declaration, but can only come through negotiations that settle all the outstanding issues to the satisfaction of both sides and mutual respect and security. Hamas and most Muslim countries refuse to acknowledge that Israel has the right to exist. Until this is changed, no peace will occur.

    County’s reasons for scrapping audit panel are lame
    Editor:
    I’ve been following the Jeffco audit issue for several months now, and after reading your June 15 front-page article “Commissioners scrap county audit panel,” I thought it would be a good time to add my two cents.
