    Make sure the trip back to the classroom is a safe one.

     “Safety should be the top priority for all students, especially younger children and those heading to school for the first time,” said Gino Greco, chief executive officer of the Red Cross of Colorado and Wyoming. “Whether riding, biking or walking to school, we want everyone to arrive and then return home safely.”

    Welcome to school year 2016 – 2017!

    Charter school advocates are bullish on a recent Colorado Department of Education report that touts the racial diversity and academic success of charter schools.

    They’re also hopeful that the report will spur lawmakers to close the funding gap between charters and traditional public schools in the 2017 legislative session.

  • Dear Editor,

    Back in 1961, I worked at Nedicks at Time Square, in New York City. I sold mostly hotdogs and sodas. Nedicks made a great hotdog and they did a thriving business. At that time, hotdogs cost 15 cents each and I made the minimum wage of $1 per hour. Then one day, it was announced in the papers that the government was raising the minimum wage to $1.15 per hour. The very next day, Nedicks raised the price of hotdogs to 25 cents each, and a week later I was let go. Prices that were not controlled by our government went up also.

    The end of 2015 is nearly here and a new day is dawning for Colorado’s solar power. With solar installation costs falling, the efficiency of solar cells improving, and the threats of air pollution and climate disruption mounting, solar power’s growth could not come at a more critical time.
        We are poised both globally and nationally to accelerate the development of renewable energy, and in Colorado there is an especially great opportunity to become a leader in the U.S. in solar power capacity per capita.

    The Fort Lupton Optimist Club sends a heartfelt thank you to every single individual, as well as the local businesses, who contributed to the huge success of the 2015 Angel Tree Christmas Project. The tremendous outpouring of support for this project was overwhelming and very much appreciated. With your support, we were able to provide a merrier Christmas to about 190 less fortunate children and 64 families right here in our Fort Lupton community.

    It is no mystery that the holidays can bring up depression, loss and overwhelming feelings. The effects are understandable; holidays bring about increased demands, pressure, financial stress and perhaps grief and longing, especially when we have lost a loved one.
