Letter: It’s time for transparency, not deception

The liberal-leaning Arvada Press would have readers believe Jeffco Kids First is a subversive organization harmful to kids. Hardly. more

Letter: Worried about food waste

I believe in helping people. We gave half our stimulus check and half our Tabor check to the Food bank. If someone is caught stealing food in the store I’d gladly pay. But I am very reluctant about voting Yes on Proposition FF. more
