Sunday, June 24, 2018 letters: PrideFest, climate change, unaffiliated voters, Sent. Bennet’s speech 27.6.2018 Denver Post: Opinion
PrideFest celebrates all families Re: “Not a fan of Pride photo,” June 19 letter to the editor I wonder if the couple who were so outraged about the PrideFest photo felt any sense of that same rage over the much less “family friendly” headlines and photos about forced separation of immigrant families. Our grandchildren know that family consists of those people who love and care for you. Some of their friends are raised by single parents, others by two mommies or two daddies, others by a daddy who is now a mommy. Our family feels comfortable accepting the various families who make up our community. What we can’t accept is the idea that some families don’t matter. They also love and need to be together just like our family does. Family friendly should apply to all families! Ann Fairbairn, Arvada

Peak runoff of the Colorado River occurred in mid-May--its earliest in 50 years and part of a 21st Century trend, according to the Colorado River Water Conservation District.
