  • Wildfire victims ponder the question

    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?

    Parents want choices with Jeffco schools
    Editor:
    As a parent of children who attend public charter schools in Jeffco, I was very disappointed in Rupert’s, Harmon’s and Mitchell’s response regarding public charters at the candidate forums. They all think: 1) public charters need to be more accountable to the community; 2) charters have too many waivers; and 3) waivers should be controlled by the school board not by the parents, teachers and administration in the school.

  • Journalists gathering the info you want

    One night last month, when Hurricane Irma was beginning to bear down on Florida, I was being honored along with five other far-more deserving journalists by being inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame. But at the last minute, three friends who had bought tickets to the banquet, all journalists themselves, had to cancel. They were on their way instead to Florida.
