Adam and Lora Reichley: Support early childhood education 23.2.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Early childhood education has proven to be a very important element in the development of young children, and we have been very fortunate that all three of our children have been able to attend the Discovery Learning Center preschool program (part of the Family Development Center) prior to moving into the public school system. This would not have been possible without the assistance of their scholarship programs, and we are so thankful that they are in place. The facility is top notch, and I always know that my children are in a safe and secure environment. The staff however is what makes it a truly special place. They sincerely care about the wellbeing of the children and families in our community, and their impact on the lives of over 450 families in Routt County cannot be overstated.   A great way to ensure the continued success of the Discovery Learning Center is by supporting the upcoming Casino Night at the Steamboat Grand from 7 to 10 p.m. on March 11. Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the ...

Editorial: McAdams is right. Without state funding, Justice Reinvestment Initiative is a failure 9.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
“If this is going to be a Christian nation that doesn’t help the poor, either we have to pretend that Jesus was just as selfish as we are, or we’ve got to acknowledge that He commanded us to love the poor and serve the needy without condition and then admit that we just don’t want to do it.” — Stephen Colbert Ben McAdams is right. The Utah Legislature’s Justice Reinvestment Initiative has so far resulted in precious little justice because there has been no serious initiative to actually inve... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
