Déjà vu – 252
How many of us remember the misleading Clean Air-Clean Jobs Act, House Bill 10-1365? That bill was created behind closed doors, conceived in deceit, conspired on by then-Gov.

Since retiring from my “real” job at Yampa Valley Electric Association, I have been volunteering at the hospital for several years. My first position was in the business office for one day a week, helping with filing and making copies and such.
The problems of SB13-252 are too numerous to detail. But legislation of this significance should never be introduced too late in the session for serious consideration and debate. SB13-252 is a rush to judgment by environmental radicals and the Democratic leadership in the legislature without thoughtful consideration of the impact on rural Colorado.
Science fiction class is a great venue for students to work out some of their deeper sociological and anthropological thoughts. It isn’t difficult to get an opinion from a teenager, but it is more challenging to have them think their opinion through to its logical conclusion.
Attending a Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission meeting recently was a unique experience to one of my brother’s and my life. Being in attendance we were able to listen and experience firsthand the many issues that came before the commission.
Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers gave their lives to keep this country free. To let some governor sign it all away with a stroke of a pen is ridiculous.
Many veterans have claims pending for various issues.
I’ve been noticing the articles about the trash, and Craig clean-up days will be coming around the bend. I’ve been thinking about this community clean-up and I think it’s a great idea.
Both beginners and experienced landowners will find value in an upcoming workshop that will discuss topics related to managing small-acreage property.
