Patricia Calhoun's posts about the new state logo, not to mention a slogan ("It's our nature") that's uncomfortably close to Cabela's, have led to a lot of debate among our readers, most of whom give the new "Peak" logo a thumbs-down. Here's a typical reaction.

Valerie Cates writes:

It makes me sad. Why did they have to mess with a good thing? I know this is a trivial worry considering what is happening in the world but sometimes paying attention to these little things is important too. I am a native and have always loved seeing our beautiful colorful flag and my Never Summer sticker has Colorado colors on it. Now its kinda like yay...we have a road sign. Might as well make our state logo a mile marker.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
