401 Meeker St Delta CO 81416 970.874.4421
Traffic laws apply to bicyclists, as well

Knowledge of traffic law is almost non-existent in Paonia. And the worst example I have seen just recently was a bicyclist riding against traffic forcing vehicles over into the opposite lane of traffic followed by running the stop sign with absolutely no regard for the law.

County accused of reneging on contract

Trust is a funny thing. It can take years to build it, but only seconds for it to disappear.

Farewell to former patients

To my former Delta County patients, I would like to extend an enormous thank you for entrusting your medical care to me over the past three and a half years. It brought me great joy to work in your community!

County fails in basic services

What would you do if you woke up one day to find your address had changed suddenly and without prior notice?

I'll take a guess and assume you'd be pretty upset. I know I would be.

Coloradans vs. Californians

Has there ever been a time in America where hate has been more rampant? Maybe during the Civil War when there was hatred between the North and the South over slavery.

Community offers excellent medical care

We wish to acknowledge the excellent care my husband received on May 24 by the Delta County Ambulance District and the emergency room employees at Delta County Memorial Hospital. There is no doubt in our minds that without their fast and expert care, he would not be alive today.

A lesson in language

As a proud conservative, I am confused by the demand that Samantha Bee should be fired for the same reasons that Rosanne Barr was fired.

Nelson is the right pick for Delta County

We are all too familiar with the "good ol' boys club" in Delta County, and it takes a special kind of person to stand up to it. More so, it takes a rare breed of person to do so with gusto and grace.

It's time to face facts

Recent reports of surge in coal production in the Appalachian coal fields. Amazing how fast a horse can run when you stop jerking on the reins.

Empty pews

There are lots of empty seats in our churches today. Christians who should be sitting in those pews are absent.

Marijuana is in keeping with our ag heritage

I have two, no three reactions, to the article "Timeline details marijuana votes and regulations" by Matt Soper (DCI, March 1). First the majority of the article is correct as it relates to the timeline of events and what occurred.

A big victory for the West

The Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule that was issued by the Obama Administration was one of the most onerous federal water and land grabs in history -- it undermined state water law and priority-based systems, inserted federal control over western water rights, and put decisions about our water in the hands of Washington bureaucrats.

Tipton urged to focus efforts on renewable energy

I am writing to ask you to withdraw your co-sponsorship and support for HR 167, Stopping EPA Overreach Act of 2017, and instead concentrate your efforts on stopping global warming by bringing renewable, non-polluting sources of energy online as quickly as possible.

Energy policy and America First

Since the OPEC oil embargo in the 1970s, America's energy policy has appropriately (though ineffectively) been focused on energy independence for decades. Now, with the fracking boom providing abundant natural gas (NG) resources plus some oil on top of it, the United States finally has the opportunity to, if not completely achieve, come close to achieving energy independence.

Politics and friends

There have been many articles lately by people who disdain our current president. That doesn't bother me a bit.

The deliberate corruption of climate science

What a travesty that the public at large has been deceived, yes deceived beyond comprehension by masterful propaganda. Unfortunately, this has been essentially a worldwide scheme backed by huge monetary gifts and orchestrated by a very successful but small number of politicians and scientists.

Ambulance service is vital to our community

There seems to be quite the debate lately regarding our local ambulance service. I was very disappointed when our community failed to vote in favor of a mill levy for the ambulance personnel.

Tipton's presence surprising; his answers familiar

Saturday I went to the town hall meeting in Paonia. Hopefully this report will be of interest to a few readers. What interested me was the following:

This is no time for complacency

I hope the public will wake up to see that the misguided Republican party agenda is to cut taxes for the wealthy and eliminate much-needed services for the public and the planet. Choosing this agenda equates to the public shooting themselves in the foot.

Tax exemption should be transferable

I'm responding to your article (Feb. 15) "Seniors, disabled vets eligible for property tax exemption." One problem -- even if you have lived in and owned your home for 10 years you can NOT transfer that exemption to a new or different home.
