Letter to the Editor: Why not Coors Day?

Posted

Is it time to honor Adolph Coors for their family’s countless contributions to Golden? Do they better characterize our Heart and Soul values than does “Buffalo Bill”? Adolph came here in about 1873 and set up business. For decades, the Coors family has donated to worthy causes in the Golden area, and employed so many with respectable jobs.
In contrast, “Buffalo Bill’s” claim to fame is killing buffalo, thousands of them (look it up on Wikipedia). Sure, much was for food for railroad workers; but too much was for sport. My understanding is he never lived in Golden, but may have visited once.
Bill Connelly,
Golden
