Letter to the editor: If it were not for investigative reporters, we would be in the dark

Stephen Hornback

I just read the controversy over Mind Springs Health and the seeming dumbing of the public on a matter that spends millions of their tax dollars, making me wonder, “Who’s in charge?”

It unfortunately reminds me of another recent controversy concerning a certain judge and the seeming dumbing of the public there also. I feel the residents of this county and state are badly misinformed.

Add to that the mess with Mesa County Clerk Tina Peters and the Douglas County School Board, and I’m convinced!



If it were not for the efforts of a few intrepid, investigative reporters, we would still be in the dark. My point being, how can we as residents make good, informed choices when we are being misled by silence? This is reprehensible! We are choosing in a vacuum.

Situations like this fuel the feeling that it’s all rigged against us.



Well, maybe it is.
