    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.

    Coverage of 4-day school week survey lacks information about negatives
    Editor:
    Regarding: “Survey says: 4-day school week saves some money with little decrease in student achievement”
    The article on Jan. 24 was presented as a factual story, rather than what it was: part of a campaign by our appointed superintendent to penny-pinch to the detriment of Clear Creek County’s children.

    Fabyanic should research before he writes
    Editor:
    My first reaction to Jerry Fabyanic’s column last week was anger. The premise of the article was to lump Trump supporters into a category of rich, religious zealots that rely solely on “Fox & Friends” for their source of information, and painting them as uneducated, backwoods, gun-toting hicks who hate others and want to keep the little guy down for their own benefit.

    Accountability in government
    Editor:
    It is my firm belief that there is zero responsibility or accountability in our federal government or in our local county government.
    Both entities are robbing Peter to pay Paul. Evidence being the $ 20 trillion U.S. debt and the recent Republican tax giveaway that all sources predict will explode the deficit between $1 trillion and $2 trillion. Trickle-down tax giveaways for the rich didn’t work under President Ronald Reagan or President George W. Bush, and they won’t work now.

    A lesson on economics
    Editor:
    In her column of Jan. 3, Ms. Hill states that she has an imperfect knowledge of economics and taxation. I would concur. To help her gain some insight, I would direct her to Robert Reich’s book “Saving Capitalism for the Many Not the Few.”

    Please leash your dogs
    Editor:
    Please leash your dogs. Your dog is not as friendly as you say. We walk our dog(s) twice a day, and at least once a week we have an unleashed or un-restrained dog approach and often become aggressive toward our dog(s).
    At times the dogs have almost hit our children going after our dogs.
