Letter: We must be a kind nation

How angry would you be, if your father had a heart attack, and when the EMTs arrived, they began lecturing your suffering parent, “Sir, first we need a careful review of your current diet and exercise routines, as well as, a complete cholesterol check, to determine the underlying “root causes” of your problem?” more

Letter: Re: Playing the Parking Game in Golden

As to downtown Golden’s “parking crisis,” everything in the article by journalist Corinne Westeman likens to the metaphor of rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. more

Letter: A dubious future awaits

“The next few decades will be the end of the kind of civilization we’re used to. Humanity is consuming 175% of what the earth can regenerate. Our current way of life is unsustainable.”— Paul Ehrlich, population expert more

From the Jefferson County Treasurer

Every tax year I receive a few calls from taxpayers asking the County Treasurer to lower or waive their property taxes for various reasons. The County Treasurer’s Office does not have the legal authority to lower property taxes or waive property taxes per state law. more

Letter - Enough infighting

Enough infighting I’m tired of reading about the endless infighting between Douglas County Commissioners. And I agree a county this size may benefit from representation by more than three when two … more

Letter: Another letter in response to Frosty Wooldridge’s Feb. 23 letter

After reading Frosty Wooldridge’s letter about the “green, wood, cement monstrosity ... growing up on South Golden Road,” I am wondering why the Golden Mayor and City Council are referenced. Golden city limits end almost immediately after Ulysses St. We see the population growth everywhere, not just in Golden. Drive, look, and listen to Arvada and Lakewood residents, as well as throughout the country. more

Letter: Thank you for “For the Record” report

I cannot tell you how happy your article, “For the Record,” made me. Bravo for your accountability. more

Letter: In response to Frosty Woodbridge’s Feb. 23 letter

Once again Frosty Woodbridge, who does not actually live in the city boundaries of Golden, throws the city council and the mayor under the bus of development and blames its members on the destruction of the world. more

Letter: We are being led to a collapse of water, energy and resources

Have you seen that green, wood, and cement monstrosity “growing” up against the sky on South Golden Road? It features up to 100 more apartments, which in turn will provide another 100 cars jamming Golden’s streets, intersections and main roads. more

Letter: Dangerous legislation

With House Bill HB23-1003, Colorado lawmakers are considering allowing schools to join a Mental Health Assessment program, administered by the Department of Public Health and Environment, and aimed at 6th through 12th grade students. more

Letter: Third-party vendor fees for property taxes

Happy New Year! As you know, property taxes fund critical services from Special Districts such as our Jefferson County school district, fire departments, public works, water, sewer, city services, public safety, etc. more

Letter: We need gun violence prevention legislation

I have been moved to action by gun violence in our country and community. more

Letter: Suncor's recent shutdown needs more scrutiny

Suncor’s recent shutdown has received an appalling lack of scrutiny from the press. The narrative has been that with the shutdown gas prices will increase. I suspect this is Suncor’s attempt to distract the public and press from delving more deeply into the issues. more

Letter: There is still time to have your opinion heard

On Dec. 14, the Jeffco Planning Commission approved the rezoning of the 14-acre property just east of King Soopers on South Golden Road in Pleasant View to accommodate a mega-project of 350+ luxury rental apartments and townhomes. more

Letter: In response to Renee Marcellis's Oct. 20 letter

I am still thinking about Renee Marcellis's Oct. 20 letter to the editor against our City of Golden Mayor Weinberg concerning Golden Seniors staying in their homes.  more

Letter: Golden “loved” to death

My wife and I lived in Golden for nearly 30 years. We raised our kids there. They went to Bell Middle School and Golden High.  more

Letter: In response to the Oct. 13 article “Inside Jeffco Kids First”

A front-page headline Oct. 13 coupled with FOUR more pages. That much copy devoted to one article ordinarily suggests a truly groundbreaking news story. more

Letter: We need a policy to stop growth

Would you like to jump 10 years ahead with me? By 2032, Colorado will have added 1 million more people, net gain, to our state. They pour into Colorado like snowflakes falling into our mountains. more

Letter: In response to the letter from Renee Marcellis regarding Mayor Weinberg owing an apology to Goldens senior citizens

Renee, bravo! You took the words right out of my mouth. I had the exact same reaction after reading the Mayor's "Welcome to Golden" message in the Informer and in the following week's edition of the Transcript basically telling older citizens to give up their dream for the younger generation.  more

Letter: Mayor Weinberg owes the Senior Citizens of Golden an apology

In the September issue of THE INFORMER (Golden’s newsletter), Mayor Weinberg stated that everyone is welcome in Golden whether you have been here six days or 60 years. more
