     New rec center needed but overpriced

    Editor:

    I have been a patron of the recreation center in Idaho Springs for more than 10 years. I have found the facilities to be adequate, and the staff and management to be good. While the building is in pretty good shape, renovations are needed sooner or later. Current low-interest rates make sooner better.

    Destroying the Postal Service is destroying a foundation of democracy

    Editor:

    Good article on the post office (in Dumont); however, Ian Neligh neglected to mention one thing: the reason the post office is in trouble.

    Designated shooting ranges needed

    Editor:

    I applaud Tim Mauck’s leadership in the exploration of establishing designated shooting ranges in Clear Creek County to foster safe, multi-use recreation on public lands.

     Which country am I describing?

    Editor:

    Its leader has the power to control every aspect of the country. Spying on its citizens is an art form carried out by thousands of drones. 

    Electronic eavesdropping on all communications via gigantic, highly advanced, multibillion-dollar intercept facilities happens every second of every day. In addition, its civilians are encouraged and trained to spy on each other.

    Fracking has dangerous consequences

    Editor:

    Regarding Robert Houdeshell’s blaming the state legislature for not looking out for our well-being when it regulates the oil and gas industries, especially on the process of hydraulic fracturing:
