    Thanks from MCVHS

    Editor:

    The Mill Creek Valley Historical Society wishes to thank the Courant and Corinne Westeman for the wonderful article published last week about our recent melodrama. 

    A big thank you to all who sat through all the mayhem, some more than once. Thanks to all the wonderful businesses who sponsored each performance, allowing us to make more money. 

    A huge thank you to all our cast members, who struggled this year with absences and illnesses. Get well soon! We pulled it off guys!

    Vote for Marlin for commissioner
    Editor:
    George has demonstrated these qualities during his ambitious campaign:
    George has integrity: He has run a ‘clean campaign’ (no large corporate donors that he will be beholden to contrary to the “pay-to-play” politics rampant in our country). George has walked, talked and listened through the entirety of Clear Creek County, believing that he must earn each vote he gets as opposed to making promises to get votes or extracting support based on past efforts, however valuable.

    Clear Creek schools’ 4A, 4B should be approved
    Editor:
    My name is Gavin Arneson, and in 2017, I proudly graduated from Clear Creek High School. To say that my alma mater prepared me to arrive to college equipped with the skills necessary to succeed would be an understatement.
    From Mr. Hochmuth teaching me life science in seventh grade to Mrs. Indrehus encouraging me to engage critically with historical texts my junior year, Clear Creek High School instilled within me the academic and intellectual prerequisites to perform well

    Marlin is a dreamer for Clear Creek County
    Editor:
    After reading George’s letter that he sent out, I was reminded of the gratitude my family has for this community. I am so grateful my children could play and explore nature with abandon, sustained by community.

    Support Marlin for Clear Creek commissioner
    Editor:
    I write in support of George Marlin for Clear Creek County commissioner. I grew up in Idaho Springs and became friends with George and his wife, Uchi, while working on the Scraps-to-Soil Community Garden. I served as treasurer for a year. We spent many nights working on Scraps-to-Soil’s nonprofit application.  
    Through this experience I got to see how he operates. George doesn’t take shortcuts and will stay up late to get the job done (not always to my delight).

    In support of 4A, 4B

    Editor:

    I am writing in support of ballot issues 4A and 4B. As a member of the Clear Creek community, a parent whose son is in the Clear Creek School District, and as an educator (not in Clear Creek), I would like to urge everyone to vote yes on 4A and 4B.

    Continuing to fund our school district will help our schools attract and retain experienced, highly effective teachers, provide our students with quality learning opportunities and environments, and support our community as a whole.

    Vote for Sipple for House District 13
    Editor:
    A true public servant is the nature of Kevin Sipple. From spending a couple of months with a young adult until he no longer feels the desire to commit suicide, as a volunteer with the Sheriff’s Office Victims Advocates to an appointed board member of seven social services programs, public services are very important to him.

    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
