Re: Where development belongs

Infill development is smart growth at its finest. The problem is that humans are resistant to change, especially if it is in their own backyard.

Re: Immigration’s common ground

This is about capitalism versus legality. It’s is about the takeover of the U.S. by a foreign power. How can there be common ground with people who don’t respect our laws?

Re: Election spending law could get tougher

The fact is, we won’t have to worry about the possibility of campaign finance laws being weakened if we don’t pass this inadequate proposal. Why would we want to put ourselves in the position to have another election about campaign laws?

Re: End of the Old West?

Can we supersize to a happy box store? Maybe the prize inside will be another purple flagpole.

Re: Second police bust closes bar for a month

Sara Fisher was right. Menconi and Runyon were wrong. These people should have been given a much stiffer penalty the first time. My compliments to Sara for standing up for what is right!

Re: Do we need more protection from bears?

This is a nonissue. Eagle County needs these regulations in place to save bears and protect humans. People in unincorporated Eagle County leave trash out because they know there is no repercussion for doing so. I have seen bears in the daylight searching for trash in my neighborhood.

Re: Which train works in the mountains?

A monorail is the only sensible answer to this. Enough talk, more action.

Because of his paper’s outspoken and outrageous bias on home rule others have had to step up to provide the other side of the story. CJ
