Letters l Valmont in perspective

The series of articles on the Valmont site are quite impressive, some of the best journalism I have read in Colorado in years. However, they do not properly consider the relative risk of the site compared to many other risks clamoring for limited public funds: street safety, fire, flood and auto exhaust, not to mention low vaccination rates, police protection and a host of others.

Letters l Danish and his cave

The March 22 story “Taste-trepreneurs” incorrectly described the way in which Life Opening processes its cacao beans. The cacao beans are not soaked or germinated. Rather, they are dried at low temperatures. Therefore, they are “alive” and keep all of their available nutrients.

Letters | Valmont series is great

Letters | Save poop — and water

Letters | Valmont is a dumping ground

Our family has lived in Valmont since 1915. Our house is the location of the old Grange hall. Boulder has always looked east to Valmont as their dumping ground. When they needed gravel, they dug it here.

Letters | Cutting to the chase

Way to go Pamela! Thank you for your attention to the practice of infant circumcision. There are some good reasons to keep the penis intact. Like I read somewhere: “A foreskin is not a birth defect.”

Letters | Valmont’s ghosts

I want to thank you for publishing Pamela White’s piece regarding SOPA/ PIPA. It’s obvious most people don’t comprehend that stealing images, books and music affects the artists’ ability to earn a living.
