    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.

    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.

    Resolve the spending epidemic or go

    Editor:

    Everyone in county government, whether elected officials, wannabes, management or rank-and-file employees, needs to ask this simple question: “Am I part of the problem or the solution?”

    County spending and taxation is 250 percent above the county average statewide, and this fact requires an immediate and dramatic remedy.

    Thanks to those who supported choir program

    Editor:

    The Clear Creek Children’s Choir would like to extend a big thank-you to everyone who helped make our “It’s Fiesta!” program a huge success. We raised more than $1,000 and are well on our way to competing for our next gold medal at Elitch’s in the spring.

    Commissioners need to act now 

    Editor:

    As I see it, the three county commissioners have two choices at this time: to engage in immediate and broad steps to bring county expenditures and taxes in line with those of other rural counties and the 64-county average in a carefully considered manner; or step down.

    Clear Creek libraries provide professional service

    Editor:

    In response to Mr. Fabyanic’s editorial regarding the Clear Creek Library District, I hope to encourage a more charitable outlook for all concerned. It is certain that even-handed management of personnel is the very core of institutional health.

    Vote to make Idaho Springs city clerk, treasurer positions appointed

    Editor:

    Regarding the question on the ballot for Idaho Springs voters asking to make the city clerk and city treasurer positions appointed, I would like to speak as a former Idaho Springs city clerk and an “insider” to this issue and encourage a yes vote for both.
