  • Status shouldn’t be tied to witch hunt

    As Colorado Democrats attempt to elect a Secretary of State for the first time since 1954, one of the things some people have tried to pin on Republican secretary of state Wayne Williams is too much cooperation with President Donald Trump’s ridiculous voter fraud witch hunt last year. Those charges are wrong and misleading.

  • Progress means accepting new ideas

    You may be familiar with the idea that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. How about, one person’s progress is another person’s bad news?
    It seems that progress comes from the realization that there may be a better way of doing things. But, we humans may not be willing to immediately let go of the old way.

  • Legislative session a contentious one

    The 2018 session of the Colorado General Assembly ended last week. It was a contentious session that was distracted by sexual harassment allegations, but that ultimately made progress on the highest priority issues.

  • The daily circus

    Sometimes the apparent absurdities of our national politics simply defy explanation. In an attempt to impart some sanity, it appears to me that the best analogy may well be that of a circus.
    Traditionally, our most popular circuses have featured compelling ringmasters directing the audience’s attention to the ever-changing entertainment in one of three rings. Today we have the national media as self-serving ringmasters directing the public’s attention to what they deem as the story of the moment, the issue or issues that best serve their anti-Trump agenda.

  • Gratitude for family, friends, life

    On the day before Easter, my daughters Alex and Bekah and I had stopped on the hill above Mid-Vail to discuss our final run of the day. The next thing I remember was emergency room personnel in the Vail hospital discussing whether I should be taken to Denver Health by ambulance or by helicopter.
    My daughters later told me that I had hit a patch of ice and taken a fall that had broken my helmet (which, thankfully, I was wearing) and my bindings and left me bleeding profusely from my face.

  • Why we do what we do

    Journalists usually are not good at tooting their own horns. Shoot, in a lot of ways, it doesn’t feel right to do so. But this time, we are.

    We’re a small, but dedicated staff at Evergreen Newspapers. The past two weekends have been a bit surreal for us as our peers paid tribute to our diligent work during the past 12 months.

    First, the Colorado Press Association honored our staff with 47 awards, including a pair of sweepstakes awards for photography and design for the Canyon Courier and Clear Creek Courant.
