  • Defining candidates’ ‘respect quotient’

    What does the Colorado General Assembly’s majority leader do when she shows for her town hall meeting, but few others do? Not much, except call it good and scoot home to Boulder.
    But what do Clear Creek citizens do about being deprived of the rare opportunity to visit with, question and hold their representative accountable because she failed to adequately inform them, the press and local officials of that April 5 town hall?

  • Newspapers are 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.
