Starting another new chapter
I tried. I really did.
But I'm not much of a businessperson, and I'm a terrible salesperson. I'm just a reporter, and that's really all I want to be. So I'm going to let other people handle all that other stuff. I'm just going to focus on bringing you the news, finding you the truth and giving you a voice when you need one.

Arapahoe County Judge Ethan Feldman left the bench after 20 years on December 31, 2011 and today formally announced his candidacy for District Attorney in the 18th Judicial District, encompassing Arapahoe, Douglas, Elbert, and Lincoln Counties.
Fennell: "Issues with judgment and leadership from LPD and city management"
I have been a citizen of Littleton for over thirty years and have thirty years of experience as a law enforcement officer, security manager, and security consultant. For the past several months, I have been aware of a problem with our Littleton city government. The Littleton Police Department (LPD) was the subject of an outside investigation by The Eighteenth Judicial District/ Arapahoe County District Attorney’s Office.
Dear Robbie: Hope and change for 2012 – too cliché?
Like everyone else, I spent the last few weeks doing The Holiday Hop: shopping, cooking, eating, hugging, (did I mention eating), and sharing. I’m grateful for all the wonderful people in my life, tearful for those no longer with me (Dad, I’ll always miss you), and hopeful for things to come. “Hope and Change” have been oft-used words over the last few years, and I will use them here for my own purposes:
Top 12 'Your Thoughts' of 2011
Here are snippets of LittletonGazette.com's 12 most clicked-on "Your Thoughts" of 2011, our inaugural year. I truly enjoy the respectful dialogue, the growing sense of community and, of course, the news tips (Whatever happened to fob, I wonder?).
Dear Robbie: My, what a large Corpus Callosum you have!
Sexy, huh? Actually it’s important when we’re talking about emotionally trigger-happy people who fight about everything, especially during the Holiday Season.
Letter from the editor
This is not an editorial, nor is it a letter to the editor; rather, it’s a letter from the editor. To you, readers. We have some catching up to do.
Koernig reviews India's Best
I never thought I would be a restaurant reviewer, but last Saturday, Mary and I decided to go out for lunch.
Young lady needs your help
My name is Eva Kenyon and I am a California resident. I am writing to you to see if you could possibly give me any suggestions on how to find photos of an old church there in Littleton that I'm not even sure exists any longer. My grandmother once lived in Colorado where she met and married her true love, my grandpa.
TW Cresswell: Red-light cameras are "despicable"
City officials in Green Cove Springs, Fla., probably didn’t think anyone would notice when they reduced yellow-light durations at a few city intersections.
The Florida Times-Union did notice and started asking questions.
Rise above the fray
So true. Everyone looks good when nothing goes wrong. It’s when the world collapses, when something truly terrible happens – that’s when one’s character is measured. You find out what you’re made of; you discover what you have in the emotional tool chest to help you rise above the fray. You find out who you are – and so does everyone else.
UPDATED: We need your help
In the course of researching the story behind former City Attorney Suzanne Staiert's dismissal, I filed an open-records request with the city of Littleton asking for all e-mail correspondence among any and all city council members from June 26 through the present.
What's the real problem?
We recently found out the circumstances surrounding former City Attorney Suzanne Staiert’s dismissal, and they call into question the ethics and actions of city council and some staff. I suppose somebody will call Staiert “disgruntled” at some point – well, I'd be disgruntled too if I got fired for being sexually harassed, and if the HR guy told me I wasn’t complaining right. I’ve said this before – just because someone is disgruntled doesn’t make her unjustified, wrong or a liar.
Valdes expresses thanks
I would like to extend a huge thank you to all those who voted for me in the Littleton City Council District 2 election.
Apologies are in order
(Letter to the Editor) I have long been wondering about Susanne’s firing. I thought it sad, but assumed Council had valid reasons for it action.
