Mr. Bigley, Thank you for your service as an EMT and 1st responder. I am sure you have impacted the lives of many people. To your point regarding potential life threatening emergencies, I have indeed experienced such an emergency, having been in septic shock about 18 months ago.

You have to wonder about the inteligence of some of our elected representatives. Take one of Colorado’s own, Rep Joe Neguse. He told CNN last week that it was not true that he had supported impeachment before being sworn in, in Jan. 2019.

Violent language and violent acts http://www.pagosasun.com/violent-language-and-violent-acts/ Thu, 12 Dec 2019 22:00:14 +0000 http://www.pagosasun.com/?p=192749 Dear Editor:
There is a direct connection between violent language and violent acts. As we watch events unfold in Washington with the attempted political coup of a duly elected President it is important to note the language that is being employed. Violent language can and does lead to violent acts.

As former full-time Pagosa Springs residents, my husband and I both were so grateful to read Dick Ray’s recent heartwarming story and historical background of this beautiful area. It brought back memories of life intertwined with Dick’s sweet wife, Vimmie, and renewed my thankfulness for so many, with whom we still enjoy visiting when we are in Pagosa.

Democrat confusion http://www.pagosasun.com/democrat-confusion/ Thu, 12 Dec 2019 22:00:07 +0000 http://www.pagosasun.com/?p=192757 Dear Editor:
In the 11/21 SUN letters to the editor section, Democrat Dave Blake asks “Is our President Donald Trump a not-so-secret Russian asset (helper)?” with Blake’s innuendo being that Trump’s imaginary stopping of aid to the Ukraine was designed to help Russia. Of course, there has been no stopping of aid to the Ukraine as they are receiving approximately $400 of much needed military aid. However if Blake’s is truly concerned about the Ukraine, he might look at his fellow Democrat Obama who refused to send any military aid to the Ukraine when they were being invaded in 2014. The president of The Ukraine begged for weapons from the Democrats but they sent none. Hmm. A thinking person might just say that was being a (helper) to the Russians.

Well, here we are again, entering the season of love — celebrating the birth of the only begotten Son of God, Jesus Christ, who came to teach us about love. Yes, the wise men brought gifts in celebration of the season, let’s focus on the true gift, that of God’s love that frees our souls to find comfort from the stress in our lives. It cannot be purchased, it is ours to accept.

Valle Seco land exchange http://www.pagosasun.com/valle-seco-land-exchange/ Thu, 05 Dec 2019 22:00:37 +0000 http://www.pagosasun.com/?p=192373 Dear Editor:
The Valle Seco 2019 Land Exchange is not merely an exchange of a large section of private land for another significant part of the national forest. Several area ranch owners are offering to exchange a large section of private property for 11 smaller hand-picked areas of national forest that they have wanted to own for some time. All of which would block public and hunter access to these lands once they fall into private ownership.
