     Idaho Springs council should revisit

    proposal for Patriot’s Park

    Editor:

    As a nonpolitical concerned citizen and veteran, representing only myself, I would like to revisit the Patriot’s Park controversy.

    Patriot’s Park would be good for town
    Editor:
    Regarding the recent article in the Courant: It is incredible that a simple proposal to name a piece of city property “Patriot’s Park” could invoke such a storm of recriminations from the director of the library board.
    The allegations presented by the board of director are as follows:
    • The new name would detract from the classy, inspirational titles espoused by the director — i.e., “the yard” and “the library grounds.”

    Thanks for condolences

    Editor:

    It is difficult indeed to put our thoughts into words, but we very much appreciate (the community’s) kind and helpful words, deeds and gestures at a time when these things mean so much. Carroll Turner White (C.T.) was a friend to many and a good role model to all of us. He will be sorely missed by his family and all who knew him.

    Give the Squaw Pass Road workers a break

    Editor:

    I am a resident of Blue Valley Acres and had to share how impressed I am with the hard work happening on Squaw Pass. 

    I drive this road daily, sometimes several times daily. I see the same flaggers and heavy-equipment operators day in and day out. For the last four months, I have gotten to know who smiles, who is in charge and who dresses warmly for the elements.

     Thanks for support of Watershed Festival

    Editor:

    To the amazing volunteers, passport station staff, entertainment, service/product providers and sponsors:

    Thank you for making our fifth annual Clear Creek Watershed Festival a success. What a wonderful way to celebrate this spectacular place and resilient community. We could not have done it without all of you. This unsolicited testimony sums up the value of all your efforts:

     Time to have a conversation

    about what county should be

    Editor:

    The Snow Mountain property on Floyd Hill is attracting attention from many corners of Clear Creek County. Some want to develop the property into a multiple-unit (560?) housing venture to raise the county property-tax base. Others want to preserve it as an open-space gateway to Clear Creek County for Interstate 70 travelers.

     Expansion of rec center a wise idea

    Editor:

    I am happy to see that the Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District is planning
    to renovate, upgrade and expand the Idaho Springs Recreation Center.

     Commissioners’ actions regarding

    open space disappointing

    Editor:

    Re: The county commissioners’ meeting on Aug. 16

    I wish to comment on my disappointment over the outcome of the Clear Creek Board of County Commissioners meeting to consider the Clear Creek County Open Space Commission’s request to move forward in an effort to acquire the former Williams (now Snow Mountain) property just south of the Floyd Hill overpass.
