Dear Editor: As most people are aware, the Larimer County District Court has ruled in the case regarding EPURA and the Town of Estes Park. It has in effect overturned the Town’s rejection of an initiative that would allow the people to vote on the conditions that would establish or continue an Urban Renewal Authority. This decision reaffirms the Constitutional Right of people to be able to vote on matters i ...

Shop Locally!

To The Editor: There seems to be a perception in Estes Park that we need to go to "the valley" to get the things that we need. Well, it's just not true! Recently, after researching a much needed vacuum cleaner on the internet we were shopping at True Value and decided to see what they had. We not only found a wide selection of vacuums but the very one we had researched and decided upon. True Value's price w ...

A Response To Mr. Groome

To The Editor: Wayne Groome errs when downplaying the role of politicians in the creation of the massive so called "stimulus" bill. Members of the House and Senate did indeed contribute. And no, we don't have to trust the President. His massive spending of almost a trillion dollars empowers and puts it's trust in government, not people. Mr. Groome admits he's not a regular listener to the Rush Limbaugh prog ...

Teachers Are Unsung Heroes To Our Children

Dear Editor: My wife and I have owned our home in the Estes Valley for a number of years-enjoying it as our work schedules permitted. ln August of 2008, we were fortunate to retire and move here permanently. As long distance property owners, we kept up with the many successes and challenges facing Estes Valley through the weekly delivery of the Trail Gazette and the Estes Park News. One of the issues I foll ...

More On ADU’s

To The Editor: Just the facts….. In my most recent letter to the editor I made the following statements: “The Town receives 75% of its income from tourists. The remaining quarter comes from taxes that you and I pay.” These two sentences are correct, however, the second one could be misleading. The revenue does not just come from local property taxes, but other sources as well. In fact, only about 3% of the ...
