Anonymous posters casting stones. How brave. I think it is great that Frank is running again. He's a good guy and principled. The anti-politician, I suppose. But you guys keep voting for the popular type. It's worked out well for you thus far, hasn't it?

Oldman, I personally agree with you. However, I do understand the other point of view. If the second amendment has at its core the goal of making sure the people can defend themselves from violence instigated by the government, then if the government were to attack the people, the people (i.e., private citizens) should be armed with the same or better weapons in order to defend themselves. It is a radical idea, but our founders were radicals and had just defeated a government they saw as evil.

So, David Moore, your response to a letter to the editor about the hospital bringing unneeded competition in a field that has an extremely competent doctor who chose to make her life's work here in Craig is to shamelessly advertise skin cancer treatments and knee replacements for the hospital? The hospital is an asset to the community, but not if its operating model is to try to drive all other doctors in the community out of business. The Hospital is going to start seeing patients flee to doctors not associated with it if it keeps driving away good doctors both in and out of the hospital.

CDP is free to charge what they want for their product. It's disingenuous to say that the product was “free” before, however. It was and continues to be supported by the sale of ads. Obviously whatever models CDP is trying to implement are not working. I worry that they may face a real problem now, though, as they will lose a large percentage of their readers and then their advertising will drop decidedly (because who wants to buy an ad to reach a handful of people?). Hopefully this works out for them, as it is nice to have a local paper. Unfortunately, many readers, like me, only have a casual desire to be kept up with what's happening in Craig. I'm sorry to say that I won't be keeping up with the Craig news anymore (except the occasional story that hits the Denver Post). Best of luck to everyone.

Well said Italiris. If you cannot debate an issue rationally, the problem is you, wrestlinrockies.

Isn't the city going to have to approve this? Hopefully the CDP will make it known when that meeting will occur. I would be ok with putting the tower something like 15 miles out of town… but then they'd be building over the tower in Hayden. What a terrible case of government for the government… not the people.

I wouldn't blame CNCC for doing this, especially if it presents an opportunity for their students to gain some practical experience. I do agree with the editorial board in how it characterizes the fire board's actions: a “vanity project” without any merit.

I agree that No Child Left Behind is a disaster. However, before it was implemented, education in the United States was still well behind most other developed nations, despite our spending more per pupil than most countries. I don't think the solution is to simply “deregulate” education. Education, unlike private industry, is largely a government enterprise. The idea of getting the government out of education is like saying we should get the water out of ice. Schools need to be accountable for what they do. I just think that No Child Left Behind is a failure in trying to do that. Ms. Arnett is a very respected teacher and I have no doubt that she is very dedicated to what she does. However, not all teachers are as competent or dedicated. There is a problem when unions protect poor teachers because the education of their students suffer. We are also seeing tremendous growth in the costs of benefits that teachers receive. This is less money available to hire more teachers and spend on other things. I'm not sure what the solutions are. What I do know about Mitt Romney, though, is that he is generally persuaded by statistics and data. Hopefully he can get a better policy together than his predecessors.

Justiceortruth, here is the link. http://epa.gov/carbonpollutionstandar… The EPA has proposed regulations, and Obama supports them, that would essentially make it impossible for any new coal power plants to be built. They have basically decided to eliminate the entire coal industry in the United States over the long term. As the New York Times said, “The Obama administration’s proposed rule to control greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants — the first ever — could go far toward closing out the era of old-fashioned coal-burning power generation.” http://www.nytimes.com/2012/03/28/sci… Obama is no friend to the coal industry.
