Letters | Danish and fracking

The COGCC and their ally Gov. Hickenlooper want to put the fracking operations ridiculously close to people’s homes and neighborhood. The scientific data is extremely clear that current fracking practices adversely affect the local air and water quality. The impact to home values is also pretty undeniable.

Letters | Marijuana growers should pay more for electricity

These high-use customers drive the need for increased supply, which all customers have to pay for. A gas electric plant costs in the neighborhood of $80 million. Should we all have to pay increased rates, or just the customers who use twice the average or more?

Letters | Erie mayor fracks with nature

Mayor Joe, for numerous weeks I have read your opinions in the Colorado Hometown Weekly and watched you bumble your way through with more name-calling (melodramatic, over-the-top fracktivists, and you even had the audacity to cut down Al Gore.)

Letters | Conspiracy theories are sometimes warranted

Who are the real conspiracy theorists? I can agree with Mr. Dyer that there are nutcases out there, but I suggest he look into who is to blame for an epidemic of conspiracy theorists.

Letters | Knock up Danish

I’d like to see Paul Danish strap on a pregnancy suit for nine months, be induced to vomit every day at least three times for at least three months, then I, as a clinical hypnotherapist, rabbi and mother of three, am happy to hypnotize him through a sensory experience of labor and birth and abortion, and only then see how he compares going to a store to buy a gun with such.
