    Statistics on gun violence are appalling
    Editor:
    There are some striking numbers out there, and, no, I don’t mean Broncos stats.
    Six school shootings in 10 days; a mall shooting leaving 3 dead. Some 260 Americans shot and 86 killed every day, eight of those being children. But who’s counting, right?
    Well, I am.

    Humane treatment of prairie dogs is first step toward changing views
    Editor:
    I applaud Gina Writz’s efforts in the relocation attempt of the prairie dogs at the parcel of land at Wadsworth and Coal Mine. Sadly, the inhumane extermination and “bulldozing over” of prairie dogs is common practice in the industry. It is simply eradication by death. And, unfortunately, until the industry changes, we are stuck with its choices.
