• Show the Democrats how you feel about gun bills

        Democrats in the state Legislature voted Friday to destroy about 1000 jobs and millions of dollars of income to the state from businesses and other sources.
        State Sen. Bill Cadman, R-12, read a letter from Michael Bane, executive producer and host for the Outdoor Channel, who said his operation already has canceled filming in Colorado because of the gun bills.

  • Keep local control of the Fort Lupton Library

        Are you aware that the local library will soon be under the control of the High Plains Library District of Greeley? If you are not a library patron, you probably know at least one of the hundreds of people who use the library every day.
        High school, middle school and elementary students are in the library before, during and after school every day accessing research materials and the Internet that many cannot afford at home.

  • Thanks for your support of Jim Bangert

        We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the community’s support of the fundraiser for Jim Bangert. Your gifts and orders will help Jim with expenses as he fights colon cancer. Thank you very much!

  • Dear Weld Re-8 Voters

         We know for a lot of our families these are still very challenging times, and for you to vote “Yes” on both 3A and 3B took a lot of courage and faith in our board, administration, staff and students.
         This has truly been a community effort and we have so many people to thank. From the members of the Fort Lupton Education Association to the BEST for US! Committee to our individual citizens, thank you for believing in our children and schools.

  • To the citizens of Weld Re-8 School District

        It is with great honor that I have the opportunity thank you for passing 3A and 3B in the Nov. 6 election. Your vote of confidence in our schools and programs means we can continue to make advances in achievement and refurbish our aging schools. Please understand I do not take this vote of confidence lightly and will proceed with the best interest of our students at heart. We have the responsibility for educating and preparing our kids for the future and on November 6th, we made that commitment to them.

  • Thank you for your generosity

        Mrs. Shelly Galicia Wyss, staff and students would like to thank the St. Williams Catholic Church parishioners and the Knights of Columbus for their generous donation to the Twombly Elementary School special needs program.
        Thank you!
