Dear Editor:  Never too Old to Offer Help with Homework

Dear Editor: Never too Old to Offer Help with Homework

Hello:  I am a third-grade student in Northern Virginia and my class is learning about the United States.  Each third-grader has been assigned a specific state and I have received your state!  I am very excited to learn more about the great state of Colorado and wish to represent you well in my final State […]

Dear Editor, Seasonal Donations

Dear Editor, Seasonal Donations

  We’re two weeks into our bell ringing season and we’re off to a great start! At writing this, I am aware of about $2,000 raised so far through the Salvation Army kettles and through our GoFundMe efforts (2020 Helping People in Prowers campaign). If history repeats itself, that will take care of January’s needs […]

Letter to the Editor:  Lamar Colorado Ministerial Alliance

Letter to the Editor: Lamar Colorado Ministerial Alliance

  Dear Editor,   It was the day before Halloween during our last snow storm. I had stopped in the office briefly to put a sign on the door telling people the office was closed. The roads were slick. The air was frigid and the ground covered in snow. I had just shoveled the main […]

Letter to the Editor-Prowers Journal

Letter to the Editor-Prowers Journal

  We are writing once again in regards to the murder case of Curly and Darlene Culbreth, the elderly couple murdered at the Lamar VFW in August 1991. As most of you know, the case was featured on an episode of Cold Justice. The Cold Justice crew was there in September 2018 and the show […]

Letter to the Editor: Sand and Sage Fair

Letter to the Editor: Sand and Sage Fair

    There are so many talented people in Prowers County that has always surprised me that more of them did not put something in the county fair. The county fair displays the talents and bounty of the area, and it can’t do that if folks don’t participate.   It’s coming up soon.  Fair books with […]

    Resist Polis Pack, House District 64 Group, has affiliated with Dismiss Polis, which is a neutral, third party, “Issues Committee” that has filed paperwork with the Colorado Secretary of State, with a stated mission to dismiss Jared Polis as Governor of Colorado through the recall process.

Letter to the Editor: Nike Walks Away

    On April 22, 2019 I received an email, not a phone call, but an email saying that my Nike account at J & N Shoes in Lamar was going to be closed as of Saturday, June 22, 2019 and that my future orders would be cancelled.  I tried to get in touch with […]

Letter to the Editor: Cold Justice Case in Lamar

  March 22, 2019 We are writing regarding the murder case of Curly and Darlene Culbreth, the elderly couple that was murdered in Lamar in August 1991. We are lifelong friends of Cindy Bernhardt, Curly and Darlene’s daughter.  I say friend, but Cindy is more like a sister.  We have watched her have to live […]

Letter to the Editor: Red Flag Law – Suicide Prevention

Letter to the Editor: Red Flag Law – Suicide Prevention

  As a one-time state lawmaker who had an “A+” NRA rating and a former Republican candidate for governor, I’m strongly supportive of HB-1177—a bill that would provide extreme risk protection orders to temporarily remove firearms for those in the midst of a crisis. My perspective on this issue is personal. Our family was in […]

Letter to the Editor: HB 1177

Letter to the Editor: HB 1177

Sirs, I am very proud of the citizens of Prowers County for the stand taken regarding HB 1177. On March 11, they came to defend the Constitution of the United States from encroachment by the State of Colorado. HB 1177, as proposed, is another attempt to extend the power of the government over its citizens. […]
