    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.

     

    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:

    2 parts beef fat, melted

     It would be safer if everyone had a firearm

    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.

    Sorry for the omission
    Editor:
    Mt. Evans Home Health & Hospice wishes to report an error in its 2012 fall newsletter. In listing the highlights of the year 2012, the Slacker Half Marathon was inadvertently left off.

    The Slacker Half Marathon is a community treasure. Three charities benefit each year, including Mt. Evans Home Health & Hospice. The revenue that is produced from the event directly benefits residents in Clear Creek County regardless of their ability to pay.

     Please support the Salvation Army

    Editor:

    The Clear Creek Extension Unit of the Salvation Army would like to thank all those who have contributed in the past and encourage you to please donate to our Salvation Army extension this holiday season.

    Did you know that all money donated to our Extension Unit stays in Clear Creek County? Our Extension Unit helps locals and stranded travelers.

    The amount we can use to help those in need is based solely on how much money we have.

    Election results prove illiteracy on many levels

    Editor:

    Jerry Fabyanic said, “The simple truth is that Randy Wheelock and George Clark would be our new commissioners if it weren’t for a number of Democrats jumping ship. … In every other contest, Democrats romped.”

    Robert Houdesell said, “Obviously the Republican ‘brand’ is damaged; that much I know.”
