September 29, 2016 — So Sheriff Vallario finally stumbled onto something and was able to make use of his TRIDENT cartel. An illegal grow worked by immigrants.

Letter: Hurting law enforcement

September 29, 2016 — The honorable John Neiley is wasting taxpayer dollars and Sheriff Lou Vallario’s time. The sheriff busted 14 Chinese nationals, some possibly here illegally, who were caught harvesting over 10 semi-truck loads of pot.

Letter: Careful what you wish for

September 28, 2016 — After reading numerous letters to the editor and op-ed pieces praising Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and his authoritarian mindset, one conclusion I draw is that it seems that many of his supporters are nostalgic for 1984. Not the 1984 of the Reagan years, but […]

Letter: No on Amendment 69

September 27, 2016 — Just wanted to add a few comments to the recent guest opinions regarding Amendment 69. This is a constitutional amendment. If it doesn’t work, it will take another constitutional amendment to correct or get rid of it. The 21-member governing panel will get to make […]

Letter: Fix Colorado Ave. parking

September 25, 2016 — I am writing to support the opinion of Patty Grace in the Sept. 17 Post Independent on the parking situation on Colorado Avenue. Although diagonal parking may not be the perfect solution, it’s the only one left. The city created this mess; now officials need […]

Letter: Protect the Constitution

September 25, 2016 — Consider this a summation of discussions related to the forthcoming general election. Both candidates for the president lack qualities of statesmanship exhibited by predecessors such as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Roosevelt or Gen. Eisenhower, but we must choose one. Mrs. Clinton has been documented […]

Letter: Disdain for protests

September 23, 2016 — Football was a great game with superstars and great coaches. However, now we have too many pompous millionaires playing the game using the First Amendment in order to protect their self-centered, ridiculous, stupid actions. I was once proud to play the game for four years […]

Letter: To the mediocre have-nots

September 23, 2016 — What is a socialist? It’s somebody who doesn’t have anything and is ready to divide it up equally among everybody. People who have a mediocre life are people who have chosen a career in a crowded profession. In their early years they took the easy […]

Letter: Watch the hate

September 22, 2016 — To Stanley R., thanks for your recent letter in the GSPI. I just have two questions: 1. Can’t you think of even one thing that is positive that has happened in the last seven years as a result of President Obama and/or Democrats? 2. How […]

Letter: No to ColoradoCare

September 22, 2016 — Please explain how physicians will be paid more that what Medicare reimburses. This makes no sense. Is this why there will be catastrophic tax hikes to cover the balance? This plan will bankrupt the state, decrease access to care while draining the citizens of Colorado’s […]

Letter: Bennet’s failings

September 21, 2016 — Hey Colorado, ask flip-flopper Sen. Bennet how come he voted for Common Core but he doesn’t say that in his ad. He just says that he thinks that the states should be in charge of their own schooling? I think we have been writing him […]

Letter: Hypocritical Republicans

September 20, 2016 — I truly do not understand how hypocritical Republicans can be touting their idealistic but grossly unsympathetic point of view.

Letter: Writer for PitCo

September 20, 2016 — I am voting for Scott Writer for Pitkin County commissioner because I have always felt that the five-member board allowed more adequate representation than the state-required three-member county boards. Our county is diverse, informed, large and, in many ways, complicated by its diversity. The issues […]

September 19, 2016 — Homeless and/or displaced people have multiple issues. People who have not experienced homelessness have no idea of what it means to be without shelter, a hot meal, showers or a support system. Many of our clients struggle with poor self-worth due to loss of job, […]

September 19, 2016 — Baby Boomers have enjoyed the fruits of citizenship in the greatest nation on Earth.
