    Commissioner candidates need to answer tough questions
    Editor:
    I just attended the commissioners’ question-and-answer session. Maybe 60 voters were there, less than 1percent turnout, sad.
    Moderators didn’t allow voters to speak, interesting. We were told to pose a question on a card. The allotted session was over before one question was answered by contenders. 
    There truly needs to be a full-bore debate with major voter input before Nov. 6.

    Thanks for the help
    Editor:
    I just wanted to throw a big thank you out there to the local man in a tan Jeep with the two boxers out on road 116. My son and his friend were stranded, and I could not get my 4-wheel drive to them. He went out of his way and found them and helped them get to safety. They had encountered two other people while stranded who refused to help and left them there. His kindness will be forever remembered.

    Ms. Byerley, there is no ‘free market’
    Editor:
    Ms. Byerley should stick to writing columns about fictional “Loch Lomond” monsters. When facts matter, her columns are woefully inadequate.
    If she had ever taken an economics class, she would know there is no such thing as a “free market.” Governments establish laws regulating many things in the marketplace; such as what constitutes a legal contract, what the penalties are for the breach of one and what may legally be sold

    Hillman would make a great commissioner
    Editor:
    Unaccustomed as I am to writing letters to the editor, I felt I needed to speak up, so to speak, about the upcoming county commissioner race here in Clear Creek County.  
    I first remember seeing the name Michael Hillman in the Courant. He hosted a monthly prayer group at his restaurant. I always meant to get to those meetings but didn’t get down there.

    Thanks for new sign
    Editor:
    We, the Lancaster family, sincerely thank the commissioners of Clear Creek County, Todd of Zuni Signs, Einar Jensen and all others who helped replace and restore the Scott Lancaster Memorial Bike Path Bridge sign. The sign was severely damaged in a wind storm more than a year ago and needed to be rebuilt.  
    The new sign, by Zuni Signs of Evergreen, is a beautiful copy of the original. We are thrilled with it, and we know Scott would be so pleased and honored. Thank you so much!

    Facts and logic would be helpful
    Editor:
    Almost all right-wing commentators, like Ms. Byerley, call themselves opinion writers because they are able to spout their fantasies without the requirement of facts or logic to back them up. They advocate ridiculous solutions to complex problems and wonder why they are not taken seriously.

    A wrap-up of the legislative session
    Editor:
    The 2018 legislative session ended a couple weeks ago, and I am extremely proud of what we this year for a variety of things.
    The session started out with a heavy focus on workplace harassment. I was in charge of the investigation against Rep. Lebsock and brought the resolution to expel him. This investigation took nearly all my time for the first six weeks of the legislative session.

    Thanks for help with 9Health Fair
    Editor:
    Once again this year we had a very successful 9Health Fair on April 21. This was the 39th year we have been able to bring the fair to Clear Creek County, and we were able to serve more than 200 people again.
    The success of the fair is due to the hard work by a number of volunteers and the help of local businesses and professionals. I want to take the opportunity to publicly thank everyone involved.
     A special thank you to the following people and businesses:

    Profit vs. truth

    Editor:

    A recent heavily publicized event became the perfect example of the growing sickness in America called racism — only in this case, the racist was profit. Profit versus truth, to be more precise.

    Two people were ultimately removed by force from a Starbucks because they were occupying a table without buying something and refused to give up their place. It’s not news.

    Eagles or lemmings?
    Editor:
    In quantum mechanics, we have learned to approach reality differently and see everything as probabilities instead of certainties. In a mathematical sense. anything is possible.
    As well as in science as in our daily lives, the extent to which we can calculate or figure out probabilities, is determined by our intellectual capabilities to recognize patterns. The less biased we are, the clearer we can identify these patterns and base our actions on reasonable probabilities.
