    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.

    Democratic Party not totally to blame
    Editor:
    Response to Nicole Byerley’s column “I took the red pill”
    So, Nicole, all those personally difficult years that you endured, and thankfully survived, were spent as a Democrat, the party that creates “division and problems,” using your words.

    Thanks for involvement in girls basketball championship
    Editor:
    In the closing minutes and immediately after this year’s 2A state girls basketball championship game, it is hard to describe all of the emotions I felt as the principal of Clear Creek High School.

    Thanks to first responders
    Editor:
    We would like to thank Clear Creek County Sheriff Rick Albers, Capt. Rick Safe, and the rest of the Sheriff’s Office; the Alpine Rescue Team from Evergreen; Ski Patrol teams; the search and rescue operations from the surrounding area; and the Clear Creek County Advocates for their tireless efforts in searching for our brother Peter, who went missing Feb. 20 while back-country skiing.
    During this difficult time we appreciate the news coverage and the respect they showed our family.

    Is the county transit survey for real?
    Editor:
    Recently Clear Creek County solicited a survey for ridership of the Prospector, which has been running virtually empty. It seems like Clear Creek governments, county and towns decide what they want to do behind the curtain and then take surveys and hold public meetings to try and justify their preconceived agendas.

    25 column inches of fluff
    Editor:
    To paraphrase Bill Maher, John Riddell’s columns have about as much relationship to serious thought as candy corn does to vegetables.
    With 25 column inches for his weekly piece, you would think Riddell would have more than enough space to outline intelligent policy and provide facts to back up his positions.
    Once again last week’s column was 25 inches of fluff and name calling, more resembling a Trump tweet than a discussion of ideas.
