     Time to have a conversation

    about what county should be

    Editor:

    The Snow Mountain property on Floyd Hill is attracting attention from many corners of Clear Creek County. Some want to develop the property into a multiple-unit (560?) housing venture to raise the county property-tax base. Others want to preserve it as an open-space gateway to Clear Creek County for Interstate 70 travelers.

     Expansion of rec center a wise idea

    Editor:

    I am happy to see that the Clear Creek Metropolitan Recreation District is planning
    to renovate, upgrade and expand the Idaho Springs Recreation Center.

     Commissioners’ actions regarding

    open space disappointing

    Editor:

    Re: The county commissioners’ meeting on Aug. 16

    I wish to comment on my disappointment over the outcome of the Clear Creek Board of County Commissioners meeting to consider the Clear Creek County Open Space Commission’s request to move forward in an effort to acquire the former Williams (now Snow Mountain) property just south of the Floyd Hill overpass.

     New rec center needed but overpriced

    Editor:

    I have been a patron of the recreation center in Idaho Springs for more than 10 years. I have found the facilities to be adequate, and the staff and management to be good. While the building is in pretty good shape, renovations are needed sooner or later. Current low-interest rates make sooner better.

    Destroying the Postal Service is destroying a foundation of democracy

    Editor:

    Good article on the post office (in Dumont); however, Ian Neligh neglected to mention one thing: the reason the post office is in trouble. 

    In 2006, a lame-duck Republican Congress passed a mandate requiring the post office to fund pensions 75 years in advance at a cost of $5.5 billion a year.

     Fabyanic has courage, strength

    Editor:

    I was very impressed with Jerry Fabyanic’s opinion piece “Accepting One’s Self Is Empowerment.” 

    Coming out is not uncommon. Coming out to the community at large in the newspaper is definitely uncommon and takes a great deal more courage.

    Twin Tunnels should be renamed to honor vets

    Editor:

    In your coverage of the county commissioners’ town meeting in the June 12 issue with the headline, “Commissioners hit the road, encounter some bumps,” you neglected to mention one issue that was discussed and met with general support by both the citizens and the three county commissioners present.

    Witwer column compares apples and oranges

    Editor:

    After reading Rob Witwer’s article titled “Now liberals have their own Nixon” in a recent Clear Creek Courant, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the young fellow.

    Designated shooting ranges needed

    Editor:

    I applaud Tim Mauck’s leadership in the exploration of establishing designated shooting ranges in Clear Creek County to foster safe, multi-use recreation on public lands.
