• LETTER: Saluting 4-H supporters

    Dear editor:

    We would like to take a minute to thank the amazing supporters of our 

    4-H youth in the Fort Lupton and surrounding areas.

    Each year, the Fort Lupton Buyers club reaches out to area businesses and individuals to help support us in our endeavors to purchase or add on to animals at the Weld County Fair Livestock Sale as well as support our kids that take Grand and Reserve Grand in other projects. We are blessed to have the support of so many great folks

    and want to take a minute out to recognize them:

  • LETTER: Combined gift drive

     Highland Legends Apartment & Townhomes are excited to be, teaming up with the Suncor Boys and Girls Club this year in a Christmas Teen Gift Drive. Suncor Boys and Girls Club have been and continue to be instrumental in providing opportunities for teens to thrive. Despite lack of resources, their success can be judged from every smile that they are greeted with from these teens each day.

  • LETTER: Thanks for support of Angel Tree project

  • 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

    Dear editor:

    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.

  • LETTER: Get ready for the pie baking contest

    Dear editor,

    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.  

    Last year’s contest was a big success and had 54 entries and included classics pies, like apple and cherry, but also included not-so-common recipes, such as coconut and mango.  The contest raised more than $3,000 for the Brighton Rotary Club. 

  • LETTER: Thanks to homeless survey volunteers

    Dear editor:

    Each year, any community wishing to receive federal funding to address homelessness must complete a Point-in-Time Count of individuals experiencing homelessness in their jurisdiction. This year, 60 volunteers from United Way of Weld County conducted the Point-in-Time (PIT) Count for Weld County. 

  • 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 

    failure to stop rate every single day. This includes all construction traffic, city vehicles, private vehicles, fire trucks, mail trucks, sheriff cars, police cars and motorcycles.
