     Fabyanic’s column leads readers astray

    Editor:

  • Vox

     Editor’s note:Because part of the Evergreen Fire Protection District lies in Clear Creek County, both sides of the current controversy over construction of a fire training building in Bergen Park have asked that opinions on the issue, and on the current effort to recall the district’s board members, appear in the Courant.

     

    There are limits …

    ThinkFirst was the brainchild
    of community groups
    Editor:
    On Feb. 21, members of the community gave teens a dose of safety and prevention. A program called ThinkFirst was provided by the Regional Emergency Medical and Trauma Advisory Council, but only the help of many community groups and individuals could ensure the success of the program to prevent brain injury.

    Recall proponents’ analysis 

    of response times is not accurate

    To residents of the Evergreen Fire Protection District:

    The release of the “call for service response times” analysis by the group recalling the sitting Evergreen Fire Protection District board has resulted in quite a few community questions. I would like to explain Evergreen Fire/Rescue’s position on this. In brief, the data that were released are not accurate due to a misunderstanding of industry standards.

    Second Amendment should be repealed or modified

    Editor:

    The gun control debate is missing the one most important fact: Repeal or modification of the Second Amendment is what is needed.

     Sturdy wagon wheels needed

    Editor:

    Under the able direction of Phyllis Adams, manager of historical sites and facilities, work on the old Civil War cannon is forging ahead. 

    The short-term goals are to alleviate safety issues and improve the appearance of the relic in anticipation of the upcoming tourist visits. To achieve these goals, replacement wheels are urgently needed for the cannon.

    Those opposed to training building

    in Bergen Park are selfish, misguided

     Sylvia Brockner’s bird pudding recipe

    Editor:

    I must say that I look forward to Sylvia Brockner’s informative and charming articles and illustrations. She has opened my eyes to nature and the animals that live around me. 

    When Sylvia mentioned bird pudding in a recent Courant issue, I wanted her recipe. Thanks to editor Ian Neligh and contributing editor Deb Hurley Brobst and, of course, Sylvia, I can give it a try. Here is her recipe:

     It would be safer if everyone had a firearm

    Editor:

    Bad guys kill children, so why encourage them?

    I find it sadly fascinating that enraged gun-ban proponents want to stop gun-toting maniacs from killing children by disarming their defenders. They assume that by banning all guns, those bad guys won’t have them.

    Civil War cannon needs support to be refurbished

    Editor:

    I enthusiastically support Bruce Bell’s initiative to restore the Idaho Springs Civil War cannon. This cannon was given to the city in 1905 by a Civil War veterans group and has been prominently displayed on the Carnegie Library grounds at Miner Street and 14th Avenue. 

    The exposure to harsh weather elements during the last century has resulted in major deterioration, causing an unsightly view and a hazard to close observers.
