To the Editor:

On July 6, you printed an editorial in your e-edition which contained a serious libel against the Grand County Sheriff’s office by suggesting that the sheriff’s office provides deputies to intimidate local citizens at the whim of local officials.

In the same editorial, you published a serious libel against the five named members of the Three Lakes board by suggesting they use their positions on the board to further their own interests rather than the interests of the community which they are committed to serve.

I request you publish a retraction and apologize to all the individuals you have maligned.

– Pat Farmer
