  • 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.

    Aquarium not fair to animals
    Editor:
    Southwest Plaza will soon become home to more than 1,000 animals in SeaQuest Aquarium’s latest venture into animal exploitation. And that’s not a good thing.
    No matter how big their enclosures, no matter how many pretty pictures they paint on the walls, and no matter how many tree branches they offer, it in no way compares to the habitat that these animals were meant to be in.
    And despite what they will have us believe, animals are still taken from the wild.

  • Facebook … the good, the bad and the ugly

    I was not an early adopter of Facebook. Like many my age, I thought it was for kids. Now, I am a user, and I enjoy the networking benefits it brings.
    I commonly communicate with friends and business associates, many of whom I haven’t seen for years. My sister is a well-known artist, but she lives in Cincinnati. With her postings, I can enjoy her artwork.

    ‘Useless ideological diatribes’
    Editor:
    I know it is a common practice for newspapers to have regular columnists from opposing sides of the political spectrum so that readers can benefit from different opinions on important issues.

  • Newspapers under attack from all directions

    It was in the early 1980s — I was a mere child — when I first started thumbing through the daily newspaper. I immediately flipped to the sports pages and then usually the comics or vice-versa.
    I walked to the nearby 7-Eleven weekly and brought neighboring papers — the Washington Post or the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch, to name a few — just so I could thumb through their coverage and clip out advertisements to save for my own personal collection.
