EPURA: The Need For Public Vote?

To The Editor: I support a public vote on EPURA reluctantly because I believe EPURA has done good things in the past for the Estes Valley and could do good things in the future. And if the public votes EPURA down, it will be very difficult to get it reinstated--that's just the nature of public votes on taxing entities. Nevertheless, I support a public vote on EPURA because I do not believe that EPURA has ye ...

Dive Team Works Hard To Serve Community

To The Editor, I am writing this letter in response to many overheard comments regarding the Estes Park Dive Rescue Team. I heard many negative comments being made as I tried to enjoy the Duck Race this year.

Some live here; some have been coming to Estes Park for years; some have known us for only a few years and a lot are here fo ...

Thoughts On EPURA

Dear Editor: What is all the fuss about EPURA? It is certainly beyond my comprehension.

Big Thanks From Chuck Coffey, The Big Duck

To The Editor: It was my honor to have served as the “Big Duck” for the 2009 Rotary Club of Estes Park 2009 Duck Race. With 5,903 duck adoptions sold we raised over $112,000 for the 66 charitable and service organizations in the Estes Valley. This achievement would not have been possible without the continuing dedication and hard work of the Rotary Duck Committee. There are so many aspects that the public n ...
