Dear Editor,

Look at the facts:

Why is Martha Stewart being singled out while Kenneth Lay (Enron) is still at large? Possibly due to his $1,328.290 donation to President Bush?

Now close to home. It seems that our own U.S. Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell is being investigated by the Senate Ethics Committee. By the way, he has raised almost $2 million for his re-election.

I could go on and on and on and on!

Are you ready for a positive change?

At 6 p.m. on Monday, March 1, in room 402 in the Old Courthouse, 109 8th St., Glenwood Springs, come and listen to Mike Miles, a Democrat who is hoping to run against Campbell for his Senate seat.

Listen to his credentials:

– Graduated from West Point, served in the Army’s elite Ranger Battalion.

– Received a degree in Slavic languages at U.C. Berkeley and then served with the State Department in Germany, Poland and Russia.

– Received a master’s in international affairs from Columbia University; winner of a National Science Foundation Minority Graduate Scholarship and a 1998 White House Fellows National Finalist;

– Is presently an assistant superintendent in Colorado Springs.

– Has been married 17 years and is the proud father of three children.

Again, are you ready for a positive change?

Please come and listen to Mike. He will represent you in the U.S. Senate with integrity and honesty.

Dear Editor,

This is in response to the Feb. 23 article, “Eateries manage to make bread off low-carb craze.”

To those restaurants jumping on the low-carb bandwagon, I ask you: How about offering a menu full of healthy meals, with only a few, select unhealthy options?

Seriously, though, I applaud the local restaurants for offering more health-conscious options on their menus. While the low-carb craze is a trend that may wear off, I see this as a step in the right direction. I hope that they continue to follow the trends and raise awareness about healthy dining options. Thanks.
