    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.

    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.

    We need to nullify totalitarian provisions of act
    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?
