  • It’s about decency, respect

    Aretha Franklin said it … R E S P E C T.
    By the time you read this article, I would bet that more men will stand accused of improper treatment or even sexual abuse of women. The steady stream of this type of behavior is truly amazing. Most Americans seem to be saying, it’s about time these unwanted acts are exposed and the perpetrators held accountable. I certainly agree with this sentiment. The common denominator seems to be the arrogant belief by powerful men that their status gives them the right to sexual favors.

  • What makes a great school?

    Skiing is fun
    Editor:
    I’m writing this for my communications merit badge for Scouts. To attain this, I have to write to a local paper about any subject!
    Skiing is fun, but we all know it isn’t when all you have is ice. If you’re planning on going skiing this early in the season, don’t because there are blocks of ice everywhere. I just got back from skiing, and it is crowded, and not a lot of runs are open.
    My advice: If you go, you’ll probably have to get new skis because you will hit a rock.

  • Social media in today’s news coverage

    I wasn’t at Legacy Stadium on Saturday afternoon, but with every precious second I could feel the electricity of what was happening in Aurora.
    Maybe it was the former sports editor in me coming out, but as I sat in the comfort of my home Saturday afternoon, I kept an eye on Twitter to see what was happening in the 5A state football semifinals between Columbine and Eaglecrest. The winner will be heading to Sports Authority Field at Mile High next weekend to play for a state title.

  • PERA reform faces challenging proposition

    One of the most attractive benefits of government employment is often a pension that used to be the norm among benefits from all employers. That has become increasingly rare as times have changed, and people are less likely to spend their entire careers working for the same employer.

  • 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.
