Taxpayers robbed

Re: “Eagle County open space tax a rip-off”

I direct the readers to the expose the Denver Post has been reporting of late. These conservation easements are the latest scam. The tax credits are inflated by bogus appraisals then sold to others. It is robbing the state of tax dollars and lining the pockets of the foxes guarding the hen houses.


Monitor your kids

Re: “Let’s watch our mouths”

When my children were younger I tried hard to monitor what they listened to and what they were around. I figured if they heard bad words on a routine basis they would think it was OK to use them as normal, everyday language.

But with that said, I also would not take my kids to a rapper concert either! And when I hear such items on primetime TV such as “Damn” etc., as a parent, I think that is wrong.

If we do not set GOOD examples for our children, what will they learn?! Now as adults, fine. You can make the personal choice on what words you choose to use. Kids aren’t making adult choices, they copy….


It’s censorship

Re: “Let’s watch our mouths”

Censorship reflects society’s lack of confidence in itself.
