• LETTER: Haliburton case ‘a non-decision’

    Dear editor:

    In regards to the helicopter issue at Haliburton:

    1. There are trains that come through this town at all hours with their horns 

    blaring. Noise is no issue.

    2. The National Guard has helicopters come and go from the base on Ninth Street.

    3. The area is designated industrial.

    4. There are no livestock issues to speak of.

  • LETTER: Police chief thanks Frederick for support

    Over the past few days, the men and women of the Frederick Police Department, as well as the entire community of Frederick, have endured an emotional rollercoaster, as you may expect, with such a tragedy hitting our community.

  • LETTER: Halliburton flight numbers misleading

     Dear Editor, 

    Regarding the article “Decision on proposed helipad” in the Fort Lupton Press dated Aug. 8,2018; the fact on the “special use permit” by Halliburton stating there will be six helicopter flights per day, three morning & three evening, is misleading. 

  • LETTER: Picture doesn't depict Christ properly

    Dear editor,

    I have comments regarding the editorial/opinion picture in the Wednesday, June 27, issue of the Brighton Standard Blade on Page 4.

    I am aware that the picture was not produced by the Blade but was allowed by the editor to be used in that issue.a

    It seems to me that not much thought was given to or investigation given to the implication given on such a picture.

    It appears that the infant Christ child is identified as an immigrant, and I assume also illegal.

    The Good Luck 4-H Club was busy Saturday, June 16, getting ready for the 2nd annual Adams County Fair Old Fashioned Pie Baking Contest.  The contest is for the best homemade fruit pie.

  • LETTE: Stop sign issue

    Dear editor,

    I live at the intersection of Wagonwheel Drive and Clubhouse Drive.  

    There is currently a single stop sign as you are headed north on Clubhouse  


    I have been a resident here since Nov. 1, and have witnessed a 90 percent

  • LETTER: Yes to energy development

    Dear editor,
    I am a strong supporter of energy development in Colorado. I know the great things that oil and gas production does for our state. Many people take it for granted, but I don’t.
    With more than 102,000 jobs and 10 percent of our state’s economy dependent on the energy industry, it’s important that we have people in office who will support pro-energy policies. Politicians who do this are the ones who will earn my vote.

  • LETTER: Be sure and vote Nov. 8

    Dear editor,
    Register. Vote. Be heard.
    Politicians and policy makers at all levels of government routinely make decisions about issues that directly affect women and families, including our paychecks, access to reproductive health care, violence against women, and education funding.  
    To create real change, women must be part of the conversation, and at this moment the most powerful way for us to chime in is at the polls.
    During this season of political punditry and campaign promises, it’s more  

  • LETTER: No such thing as a day with empty pages

    Whenever I get ready to write a Glimpse of Grace, or a sermon, or even a letter, there is always an empty page that stares back at me. And it will remain blank until I hit my keyboard, or put the pen to paper. Even if it is just a doodle, or a mistaken touch of a key, until that happens, the page will remain empty.
