Worry About Legals

I can’t figure out what perplexes me more, the misinformation everywhere in the media or those who believe it to be true. Take the Hobby Lobby case; as a company that is primarily owned by a religious family, they felt their First Amendment rights were infringed upon by the “Affordable” Care Act...

Stop Labeling and Enjoy

I have been struggling to find a simple way of understanding for myself the concepts of conservative, liberal, and moderation as it relates to our social interactions with each other...

Proposal One & The Public Good

Are you kidding me? Another corporate giveaway with loopholes for large corporations who rule us? Hasn’t our corrupt and worthless governor done enough to raise taxes, provide corporate welfare, unjustly tax pensions, and shut down elected officials with his emergency manager racket...

The Truth About Road Workers

Apparently Mr. Kachadurian did not catch on to the fact that the MDOT Employee Memorial in Clare is a tribute to highway workers who lost their lives building our transportation systems. It was paid for by current and former MDOT employees who likely knew some of these people personally...

Idiotic and Misguided

As a seasonal resident, I always look forward to reading your paper, if only because of the idiotic letters to the editor and off the wall columns...

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.
