Big government strikes (out) again

Once people are in Washington for a while, they get the impression they are smarter than the people who actually work for a living. Now Rep. Tipton has introduced HR 2907, requiring a federal agency to predict our energy needs over the next 30 years and create a four-year plan for meeting those needs.

Community support is unmatched

On behalf of our Zeta Omicron ESA sorority I want to say thank you to the Delta County Independent and to the wonderfully supportive community in which we live. We just completed our 45th annual Edge of the Cedars Art show.

Neighbor against neighbor

I was so disappointed when I heard that Susan Raymond had lost her civil suit against the Hostetlers. But I was even more disappointed to watch people turn against each other where this issue is concerned.

Health care access is in jeopardy

As Republicans attempt to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act (ACA), they often claim that insurer withdrawals from health exchanges prove that the ACA has failed. And yet, the Republicans' actions are directly contributing to those withdrawals.

SB 17-267 supports cornerstones of our economy

The passing of SB 17-267, Sustainability of Rural Colorado, marks a significant moment in Colorado history. This bill -- in addition to other components designed to support rural Colorado through transportation and education funding -- will move the hospital provider fee into a separate enterprise, protecting Colorado's hospitals from a half-billion-dollar budget cut.

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.

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.

Because we can

You may march for stricter gun control, but you march in this country because you can. You may march for a right to free and affordable birth control, but you march in this country because you can.

Methane rule warrants support

Like many landowners in western Colorado we grow hay and a large vegetable garden. It is hard work, but being outside has its rewards.

Contempt order is still hard to understand

I want to set the record straight. The Delta County Independent misquoted me when they said that the courts had little concern for us (Appeals court upholds ruling on pesticide drift, page A3, Feb. 15).

Is it government's job to help provide a "space to create" for would-be entrepreneurs? That was a topic at the Paonia Town Council meeting on Feb. 14.

Wearing pink with pride

I am a very senior citizen, sharing why I attended the rally on Jan. 21 in Cedaredge, its version of the women's march.

I went because I needed desperately to connect with other women for moral support because I am very afraid of the world situation, because of this last election.
