Frances Chisholm: 'How can you fire a volunteer?'

I was a "Pink Lady" volunteer and got fired by the Hospital. I know I was set up. Several creditable people told me: some volunteers, some of the Hospital personnel, some still are there, some that Jennifer or George let go, "I suspect unfairly." They told me I broke a Hippa Law. That was wrong. I talked to a friend of mine in the front part of the hospital a while back. I only asked him if he was there to see someone I knew.

PWC OKs 2013 fishing regs, begins work on 2013 big-game hunting regs

The Colorado Parks and Wildlife Commission at its November meeting in Yuma last week gave final approval to fishing regulations for the 2013 fishing season, the agency reported in a news release. Additionally, commissioners started reviewing big-game hunting regulations and received informational updates on wildlife research projects, financial issues, an agency marketing plan and the Colorado Archery in the Schools Program. Commissioners received a briefing on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Strategic Plan, which is being rewritten to fulfill requirements of legislation that merged the Colorado Division of Wildlife and Colorado State Parks last year, according to the release. The fishing regulations for the 2013 fishing season, which begins April 1 of next year, were widely unchanged. Anglers will see new regulations extending walleye and saugeye regulations upstream of Lake Pueblo State Park, standardizing regulations below Kenny Reservoir near Rangely and allowing the take of carp at Switzer Lake in Delta County, the release stated. Commissioners also extended a full fishing closure on Bear Creek in El Paso County. The closure is designed to protect the unique, native population of greenback cutthroat trout found in the creek, according to the release.
