Letters | The Waters 'mistrial'

Jury members aren’t thinking about the verdict. They are wondering, when will this be over? What am I making for supper?

Letters | Vote against Xcel’s 310

This fall, Boulder will vote on Xcel-supported Initiative 310 using poll-tested “debt limit” language. Initiative 310 cripples Boulder’s access to low-interest capital and is intended to prevent us from forming our own municipal utility.

Letters | Xcel-ent job

Thank you, Joel Dyer, for your excellent editorial “Don’t trade pennies for your planet." You summarized the situation perfectly: Xcel distorting the truth in order to kill municipalization and hold on to its profits, and to hell with the planet.

Letters | Keep it up

Thanks for BW’s continuing excellent investigative journalism! Your coverage of the hazards at the Valmont Dike, the Teahouse site and Monsanto’s chemical poisoning has been great.

Letters | Be more sensitive

Great news! The FBI task force may recover a record number of juvenile victims of sex trafficking this year. Women and girls (and sometimes boys and men) are stolen, kidnapped, tortured and enslaved in the sex trade all over the world. In some countries, even babies are trafficked. The situation is getting worse, not better.

Letters | Sex trafficking

Thank you for publishing this piece about this very real and very disturbing societal issue. I find all aspects of human trafficking to be appalling, from the demand for sex with children to the damage it does to their lives.

Letters | Patriotic fracking

Joel Dyer may have written “Hiding behind the flag” (DyerTimes, May 23) for BW awhile ago, but here on the East Coast in the Marcellus Shale region, or better known as frack country, we are just starting to have the pleasure of reading and circulating it.

Letters | Great story on jazz

The Ainslee Mac Naughton article about the Longmont Jazz Association and its annual festival (Buzz, July 18) is absolutely the best piece I have read in my 13 years as a board member of that organization.

Letters | Cops hassle homeless

I disagree with Chief [Mark] Beckner and the demeanor of some of his officers, who indeed knock homeless people about their social economical situations, to get an undesirable response from homeless people, to have an opportunity to write tickets, including bag checks.

Letters | We need Xcel's poles, wires

Mark Gelband’s letter of June 27 suggested that Boulder buy “green” electricity supplies while leaving maintenance of poles, wires and transformers to Xcel. Unfortunately, Colorado law says that the electricity distributor is allowed to pick the electricity provider. Boulder thus must accept the energy mix chosen by Xcel Energy.
