Defendant in Longmont drive-by shooting set for trial
VALERIE DEHERRERA >> He's going to get what he deserves!!!
ERIC SAUNDERS >> Funny how the person/s who killed a postal worker are still not going to trial.
PATRICIA ROSALES >> Justice#forzay. Best believe he's going to get what he deserves. Long live King Zay.
MAXIMUS STAFFY >> He'll probably get probation.
Longmont police notes: Police respond to thefts of firearm, walker
CLAYTON CASEY >> SICKENING.
THOMAS LAWSON >> What are the odds that a responsible gun owner stole a firearm?
PORTER DEE >> Not 600 Martin?!
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.

CHRIS BATES >> Wow, just threw your life away disregarding other people's lives.
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.
BENNIE CASTELLANO >> Money … makes people crazy? Huge discovery.
ROCKIT NICKOLAS DONALD SELMAN >> Pay for lightrail.
JEFF NOONAN >> What a useless group.
Dacono unexpectedly fires City Manager AJ Euckert; decision leaves city ‘scrambling’

SYLVIA SALAS-AGUILAR >> Unfreakinreal … Mayberry, Dacono small-town attitudes.
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.
