LETTER: Watching the watchdog
Posted: May 20, 2016

Allow me to set the record straight regarding Ms. Nelson erroneous accusations in her recent letter. The events she refers to are not Meet & Greets, they are Debates. Questions were solicited from anyone in Park County prior to the debates. In an attempt to provide structure and coherency, those questions were organized using the following criteria:

The first three days of the second session of the 70th General Assembly of Colorado are in the rear view mirror, and a line was quickly drawn in the sand.

“Takin’ It To The House…”
Posted: January 15, 2016

Jan. 10, 2016

Happy 2016 to all of you! The second session of the 70th General Assembly of Colorado convened under the Golden Dome on Wednesday the 13th of January. The 120 days of the legislative session will be a whirlwind of over 600 newly proposed bills, philosophical battles across the aisles and a non-stop posturing for reelection. Elections? Oh yes, did I mention that Colorado is a swing state for the presidential election, that we have another hotly contested U.S. Senate seat up for grabs, our U.S. Representatives are on their 2-year election cycle and half of our Colorado Senate seats as well as all 65 Colorado Representative seats will be on the ballot? When you add in the District Attorney position, all the ballot questions plus the county and local races, it might take extra postage to mail in your ballot this year!

Right at Home with Native Plants
Posted: August 14, 2015

Now is a great time to seed or add transplants because of our warm days and recent rainfalls. If you enjoy seeing the natural landscape around your home but want to add some more color, planting native plants might be just the right touch for you. Native plants have adapted to our changeable Colorado weather patterns that include heavy spring snow, hail, wind, drought, early fall frosts or soil variations from rock to peat bog. Once established, some native plants may never need to be watered. The establishment period can range from a few months to several years after planting, but then the supplemental watering can gradually be reduced.

Seeds of Wisdom
Posted: August 07, 2015

Gardens may tempt you to recapture childhood memories of family gardens or bring back memories of how family members sparked your interest in gardening as you plan certain plants to add to your garden. Older relatives or neighbors are often generous with advice and lore learned from their experience and perspective. They may be honored and gracious to tell about their victory gardens. It’s always good to think of different mentors over the years who might have helped you in any area of your life. It might encourage you to do the same and form a bond with the next generation.

Democratically Speaking

The Chernobyl which is this year’s Presidential campaign continues as both major parties try and adapt to the reality that people are unhappy that things haven’t changed for the better for many them over the past seven years, and they don’t know why. Nor have they really tried to understand why.

A Republican Perspective

I did something I hope most of you never really need to do. I watched an entire Democratic debate for President between Bernie and Hillary. It was a painful process watching them promise away our financial future. It seems the way to get votes in the Democratic Party is to see how much of other people’s money can be confiscated and given away.
