Thank you for your recent coverage of the discussions regarding Xcel Energy’s “Colorado’s Power Pathway” project in Kiowa County. We appreciate your publication of the Call to Action released by the Sand Creek Massacre Foundation in the November 24, 2021 issue of the Independent, especially reproducing it verbatim to avoid misunderstanding, speculation or rumor about where the Call to Action came from or what it included. As recent articles and Letters to the Editor suggest, it is easy for misunderstandings based on incorrect information to form and, once formed, difficult for them to be corrected.

As an organization that operates on your property tax dollars, the Kiowa County Public Library District strives to be transparent with what is happening at the Library. We are, as the saying goes, an open book! With that in mind, we would like to provide you, the Kiowa County Community, with more details about how the discussion began regarding the Library relocating to the Wissell building on Maine Street.
