    McCain is an MVP
    Editor:
    Sen. John McCain is an American icon. He spent five years as a prisoner of war in the Hanoi Hilton after his Navy fighter jet was shot down by a surface-to-air missile while performing air-to-ground support for our troops, which is one of the most important and dangerous jobs in combat aviation.

    Oh where is Western Exposure?
    Editor:
    Western Exposure, where are you? I opened the Courant last Wednesday and found no Western Exposure and no Jerry Fabyanic picture on the editorial page. I looked further, thinking the column had been relegated to another page. No Jerry anywhere.
    Western Exposure is the best part of the paper, and Jerry is a talented writer who does his research before he writes. His column rocks! Please keep it going.

    Watershed Festival canceled this year
    Editor:
    We appreciate longstanding participation in the annual Clear Creek Watershed Festival. As you may be aware, the City of Idaho Springs Colorado Boulevard reconstruction project is well underway. As part of this major project, Courtney-Ryley-Cooper Park, where the festival has been located for the past eight years, will be expanded and improved.

    Thanks for participating in yard sale
    Editor:
    Just sending out a huge thank you to all the wonderful people who came and bought items at the Mill Creek Valley Historical Society yard sale last weekend. Some people added a donation and some joined the society. Others donated a lot of nice items for us to sell. Thanks also to those who donated time to help as well.

    Wildfire mitigation isn’t about air-pollution policy 

    Editor:

    The main thing that keeps buildings safe from wildfire is a defensible space: an area around the building with minimal brush, trees and other combustible growth.

    Thanks for help with melodrama

    Editor:

    Our melodrama is over for 2016, and now I would like to extend a few kudos around to you all. Thank you, Clear Creek Courant, Corinne Westeman and Chancey Bush for the wonderful article about our performance.

    Proposed health service district doesn’t make sense

    Editor:

    We voters in Clear Creek County have several important decisions to make as we cast our ballots this year. We not only elect national, state, county and municipal candidates, we vote on nine state measures (six constitutional amendments and three propositions) as well as several county initiatives.

    Garden club could do landscaping

    Editor:

    It is interesting to see that the city of Idaho Springs is planning to pay someone to landscape in the amount of $16,000. The Colorado Boulevard East plans include landscaping.

    It would be a wonderful tribute to your talented, hard-working garden club volunteers (some are Master Gardeners) to give them money, as they are familiar with our zones and what is indigenous to our area.

    Thanks for support

    Editor:

    It is with profound gratitude that the family of Tom Hayden acknowledges the generosity and loving support of Evergreen Fire/Rescue, the Clear Creek County Sheriff’s Department and the countless friends and acquaintances that surrounded our family with care during our most difficult hours and days.

    The Goat needs a home

    Editor:

    “Wanted: New home for cute, adorable and cuddly Goat.”

    KGoat radio may be losing its home. It may be demolished for the Colorado Boulevard redevelopment project to make a new park in front of the Visitor Center. I think that a new park is a good idea, but I believe that the historic log cabin could be moved feasibly.

    I expect the city of Idaho Springs could make some land available, but Clear Creek County has more. There are other options as well.
