The Truth About Fatbikes

While we appreciate the fatbike trail coverage, the quote from the article below is exactly what we demonstrated not to be true in most cases last season...

Man Has Environmental Responsibility

I tend to agree with Thomas Kachadurian (“Playing God,” Sept. 8) that we should not interfere with the power of nature by deciding what is “native” and what is not. Man usually does what is better for man (or so we believe), hence the survival and population growth of our species...

The Bush & Obama Facts

Don Turner’s letter to the editor on 8/25/14 stated that there has never been a more corrupt, dishonest, etc. set of politicians in the White House. He states no facts, but here are a few...

Ban Pesticides

I grew up downstate in a neighborhood without pesticides. I was always very healthy. Living here, I have become ill. So I did my research and found out a lot about these poison agents called pesticides (herbicides, fungicides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers, etc) that are being spread throughout this community, accumulating in our air, water and soil...

Respect for Presidents?

Recently we read the Letter to the Editor that encouraged us to stop characterizing President Obama as anything other than an upstanding, moral, inspiring “first Black President”. The author would have us think that the rancor in the press, media and public is misguided. And, believe it or not, this rancor is a “glaring exception to … unwritten patriotic rule” of historically supporting all previous presidents...

The Ramsey Case: Boulder‘s DA Supports Parents of JonBen

Susan Bennett (Jameson) - August 26th, 2004
Northern Express recently published a letter from one Delmar England (a self-professed expert on the JonBenét Ramsey case, England‘s letter “Never-ending lies“ ran in the Aug. 8 edition). His Borg (pronounce that “lynch mob”) mentality oozed from his letter -- but I am writing to try to clear up some of his hateful rhetoric.
Delmar England suggested that you, “...Contact Boulder District Attorney Mary Keenan and see if she will confirm John’s claim (of an intruder). While you’re at it, ask her to name a single item of evidence of an intruder.”
He assures you it won’t happen - and he is right. Why? Because the District Attorney has made it a strict policy not to make public comments on the Ramsey case. Her public statements have been rare -- but they are there and they are very clear.
THIS was her last public statement on the Ramsey case -- and it makes her position very clear:

DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE
TWENTIETH JUDICIAL DISTRICT
MARY I KEENAN. DISTRICT ATTORNEY • April 7, 2003

“I have carefully reviewed the Order of United States District Court Judge Julie Carnes in the civil case of Wolf v. John Ramsey and Patricia Ramsey. I agree with the Court’s conclusion that “the weight of the evidence is more consistent with a theory that an intruder murdered JonBenét than it is with a theory that Mrs. Ramsey did so.“

Although issued in the context of a civil case, the Court’s ruling is a thoughtful and well reasoned decision based on the evidence that was presented by the parties in that case. It should be read in its entirety.
John and Patricia Ramsey have been the focus of an exhaustive investigation with regard to the murder of their daughter, JonBenét, for more than six years. People charged with a crime are presumed to be innocent until proven guilty in court. Since Mr. and Mrs. Ramsey have not even been charged, much less convicted, they must be presumed innocent and must be treated accordingly.
For several months, my office has been investigating new and other unpursued leads, most of which involve the possibility that an intruder committed this crime. We are proceeding with the full cooperation of the Ramseys, Detective Lou Smit, and the Boulder Police Department. We are all focused on the apprehension and successful prosecution of the killer of JonBenét.

The facts are few.
•JonBenét was taken from her bed and brutally murdered.
• Her parents were the focus of a very biased investigation but they were never charged with any crime.
•When the case was taken from the police department and given to the DA’s investigators, the parents were removed as the focus. The DA has told us that the weight of the evidence points to an intruder.
• When Detective Lou Smit was not working for the DA, he was technically on his own for a while, he shared some evidence with all of us.
•The intruder evidence is there - the DA is accepting it as real and the investigation is focused on finding an intruder.
