  • Remembering a real American hero

    Several weeks ago a group of World War II veterans quietly gathered in Atlanta for what in all likelihood would be their final reunion. All in their 90s, they were the last remnant of a group of American volunteers that secretly traveled overseas in 1941 to fly combat missions against a brutal Japanese offensive in Asia.

    Thoughts on the election

    Editor:

    We are writing on Wednesday, Nov. 9. We are very happy. The candidate we supported for almost two years is now president-elect. We are part of the “common folk.” We knew people wanted a better economy, more opportunities, not more elitism, not more racism or gender bias.

    Vote for Pete Weir, a DA with integrity, compassion

    Editor:

    It is both my privilege and honor to support Pete Weir for re-election as Jeffco’s district attorney. I first met Pete in the darkest days following Jessica Ridgeway’s kidnapping and homicide, and I witnessed first hand Pete’s leadership and compassion, as well as his unwavering resolve in the pursuit of justice for Jessica.
