  • Democratic electorate more female-driven

    While roughly the same number men and women registered as Republicans and unaffiliated voters participated in the election earlier this month, women made up roughly 60 percent of Democrats who voted.
    While it’s not immediately obvious why this distinction occurred or how it might have influenced the election, if it continues into next year’s mid-term election cycle, it could play an important role in determining Colorado’s next governor, other statewide elected officials and control of the legislature.

  • It’s the new normal

    Whether as kids we lived in a close-knit community like Evergreen or a big city elsewhere, the Cold War scared us. That was our normal. Now, a quarter-century after that war wound down, we live with a new war. New threats. A new normal.

    Dutch Creek honors veterans
    Editor:
    I attended the most incredible Veterans Day Recognition assembly at Dutch Creek Elementary this morning. The students honored the veterans by singing from their hearts, handing each veteran a handcrafted thank you card and playing a patriotic march on their instruments.  
    Every student was engaged in the process and exhibited exemplary behavior. Each veteran stated his/her name, branch of the service and connection to Dutch Creek. All were met with applause.  

  • Get ready for a wild ride, Colorado

    Just 52 weeks from now, we’ll decide who’ll succeed John Hickenlooper as Colorado’s governor. All indications are we’re in for a wild ride.
       At the end of October, 26 active candidates were listed as gubernatorial candidates on the Secretary of State’s website. And shortly after a poll suggested former Congressman Tom Tancredo would run best among Republican candidates, he jumped into the race as well.

    Where do we even start?
    For people in Northern California right now who’ve been sifting through the ashes of their lives that’s what they’ve got to be asking: Where do we start? How do we begin to rebuild? When will we ever again feel normal? And our question here in the high country of Colorado is will we ever have to ask something similar ourselves?
