Aurora home no matter what


I was raised and lived in Aurora from 1946 until 1989 and have always considered Aurora to be my hometown no matter where I lived.

I was horrified to learn of the shootings at the Century 16 theater on July 20th. However, it is with a sense of pride that I have been hearing reports of the rapid response of the Aurora Police, Fire and other first responders to this horrific incident.

I also hear about the actions of some of the theater goers in their efforts to assist each other in spite of the threat that they faced.

Condolences to the families of those who were killed and wishes for a speedy recovery for the wounded.

    You got out with near perfect timing.  The housing market was still good, the citizenry was decent and the restaurants were not all chain affairs, good for you.

    Dear Danny Tyree, author of the editorial piece called The Mayan Calendar, the end of the world and you. Even though people think the world will end it’s just an overreaction. People are scared because the calendar ends on December 21st but people don’t realize that our calendar ends annually. So we have nothing to worry about. My opinion is that the world isn’t ending it’s just the changing of a solstice and the calendar just happened to end on the 21st. Over 10% believe the world will end in each country. This shouldn’t be that high. It should be more around 5% in the world believes this.
    Sincerely, Jeffrey Penny.
