Longmont police notes: Police respond to thefts of firearm, walker

TINA EATON-SCOTT >> Even if the criminals are caught, the liberal judges will just let them out with a slap on the wrist. Just another day in Methmont.

Former Rep. Tracey Bernett pleads guilty, is sentenced to deferred judgment and probation

JEFFREY JUSTICE >> Wait a minute. Trying to tell us a Democrat committed a felony in regard to an election? Must be a mistake. RODNEY SMITH >> She lied and attempted to commit election fraud. Probation does little to discourage other people from attempting this. I don't have an axe to grind with this person. It just seems a bit too lenient.

AMBER GOODWIN >> She's a Democrat. So, no surprise.

Boulder County deputy charged with vehicular assault in Diagonal Highway crash

JEFFREY JUSTICE >> Has happened in this area before with a conviction and the deputy losing his job. It is well known that many people can't hear the sirens and don't see the lights. Even cops on a Code 3 have to drive responsibl­y. Sad situation all around. KEITH HORVATH >> Even the cops can't drive.

Longmont City Council votes to table how to spend Broncos sale money; process called a ‘fiasco’

JIM WESTER >> After five months we're finally getting clarificat­ion on what the money can be used for?

LOUIS J CAVALLO >> They should just use it for existing youth programs instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. It became a fiasco when councilmem­bers started to make suggestion­s for pet projects like a dome.

JEFF NOONAN >> What a useless group.

Dacono unexpected­ly fires City Manager AJ Euckert; decision leaves city ‘scrambling’

DENISE SMALL BECKER >> That's just not right!

JUDI ASHLEY >> Thank God he was absolutely horrible. Dacono deserves better. Thank you, council! Now get someone who cares and listens and is compassion­ate to its citizens.

CHRIS BATES >> No good deed goes unpunished.

Longmont not ready to deploy sound cameras for traffic

PHILLIP L SMALL >> The Republic of Boulder County is already too WOKE.

LYNDA NOIROT >> Unsafe streets and neighborho­ods: loud mufflers on cars that speed through with motors roaring at all hours of the day or night as if the driver were trying to blow out the engine. Where are the rights of people who prefer safety, peace and quiet? CALEB JAMES CONNOR >> Just what we need more of in this county. Generate revenue, infringe on freedom.
