Too bad, so sad. The only effect these counties will have from the sales will be the portion they get for their schools and that's it. The rest is people sitting in their homes with the goodies they purchased in another county, not effecting the prohibitionists in their county. No retail, no spoils, you missed out. Think about it when you're repealing your moratoriums when Denver, Larimer and Boulder counties are making bank and able to finance municipal projects.
Little does anyone know, Matt starts his rape trial 11/4/2013 for the 12/24/2011 rape in which DNA pointed to him. His younger brother is also facing trial for sexual assault and his younger sister has been accused of retaliation of a victim. Oops!

don't try to confuse the teabaggers with facts
Peter, I agree with you for the most part. As a non-smoker (okay, I'll enjoy the occassional cigar), I find the stench of "poop sticks" horrendous and intrusive, and fully support their banishment from indoor public spaces (private property owners should have the right to choose policy, and if their choice is to allow smoking on their premises, your choice then becomes whether to patronize or not).
Outside spaces however, allow for a far greater dispersion of the offensive odor and toxic bouillabaisse and until they ban automobiles, industrial machinery, and even restaurants that belch their fatty emmisions (ever drive by a burger joint when they're experiencing heavy volume?), cigarette smoke is a relatively minor contributor.
Well said. The marijuana industry brought more than $1MM in tax revenue to our "village" last year. This year, instead of continued industry growth, we will see more stores close as they fail to compete with the newly allowed A64 retail stores. Our mayor, instead of creating 7000 jobs as promised, just sent the only thriving new industry off to Denver.
Great article. As another one of his daughters, I can speak to his selflessness and character. Unfortunately, some people will never be able to see past their own hatred to appreciate that he really is there to serve.
"We complain about fracking, but set our thermostats at 72-plus degrees in the winter. Our concern about unfriendly oil-producing countries worries us, but we drive SUVs 25 or more miles to and from work." -- Steven Seidner
I don't complain about fracking, my thermostat is set to 68 in the day and 66 at night in the winter, I drive a Subaru coupe and live seven miles from work.
"we shop online for goods that are made and sold by companies based out of state. We all want a diverse economic base, but shop at big-box national or international chains while going through the self-checkout lane. We scream about big heartless bankers creating the last recession, "
I shop locally when possible to save shipping and to get things immediately instead of waiting. I avoid Walmart like the plague and absolutely hate self-checkout lanes. I do not scream about the banks, I curse at the idiots who bought homes really thinking they could afford a $500,000 home with three mortgages on $50,000 a year salary.
"We decry what our politicians do, but we are single-issue voters and don't go to town hall meetings."
Unfortunately it is hard to find a politician who agrees with any given person on all the issues, meaning they have to vote for a politician based on just a few issues, sometimes just one. I do go to town hall meetings either online or in person and I frequently communicate with my elected officials via various means.
The way to cook hummingbird would be to roast on a skewer, braise, boil, or possibly bake into something else. You would skin and clean them, but would probably cook them without further butchering. Dove is one of the smallest birds where butchering is practical/desirable -- sparrow, starling, etc are usually just skinned, cleaned, and cooked.
The forests were safer when the natural fire cycle was allowed to persist. During the past 100+ years, we have suppressed every wild fire possible. This policy allowed fuels to build up to unnatural levels and the resulting uncontrollable wildfires have been the result. The floods are a subsequent result of the large fires.
Hmmmm...Rich, has anyone ever called you a birdbrain? (Whoops! I shudna had said that; you may devise a recipe for hummingbrain fritters, and we'd have to sentence you to a week with Lamborn and Obama, manacled to either side.)
I read, with much mirth, about how many Indy hipsters believe that the tea party standing against raising the debt ceiling are against the middle class. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! In what way does increasing the national debt and devaluing the currency help the poor or the middle class? Answer- it doesn't! It only helps the banksters that trade treasury bonds that are worth nothing. It devalues the currency by creating too much of it. Thus, the $20 you had in 2009 is actuaaly worth $10 now. Want proof? Here you go, when Obama took office the price of a barrel of oil was $105 and the price of gas was $1.85 a gallon. Today the cost of a barrel of oil is $107.25 but the cost of a gallon of gas is $3.40 a gallon. Of course an Indy hipster would say "it's the evil corporations, oil companies, blah blah blah" but that isn't the answer. The answer is inflation, your money is worth less than it was before. The Consumer Price Index was created by the Clinton administration, it doesn't count energy or food in it's calculation (amazingly enough, the stuff we buy the most of). So, as this whole pile gets ready to collapse, and you are holding worthless pieces of paper, remember, you were warned.
The only comment I would add is the landscape had been changing long before the Europeans arrived. It is not uncommon for people of European decent to wrongly believe that land they arrived in was unpopulated except for the native savages. It made it easier for Europeans to take the land.
happyfew doesn't get it: I enjoy doing things my wife likes to do. We've been season ticket holders at the Colorado Springs Philharmonic for several years - not just since the election. And, I'm still a staunch supporters of all of our rights, including our right to keep and bear arms.
And, we don't "pass laws against crime". We pass laws that define crime.
"let's recall any legislator foolish enough to pass laws against crime, particularly laws that call for stiffer sentences when criminals use guns in the commission of their crimes." -- Mr. K--
You completely misunderstand what was said and what happened.
"OK. Guns don't kill people. Cars kill people. "
Sigh... Rich, are you truly that dense, or is it just an act?
Mr. K yes ill agree they print money they print stamps sure do they provide a service that American taxpayers pay for and need. With out a doubt and maybe I miss spoke but the point I was making was a loss in productivity on the private side of America. The Government is also a huge consumer of goods and services from the free market exchange that depends on a profit. Mr. Bently is another one of those that cant see the whole picture because of a failure to look past the center piece. So I brought up the center piece in order for him to understand. Kind of like welfare when that subject is brought up all they see is a freeloader they dont see the Corporations, the Huge conglomerations that own most of the farms and the millions of people in other country's that we supply aid to. See what Im doing speaking to there level.
I must beg to differ with you, Mr. Smith. The federal government does indeed produce valuable goods, including arguably the most valuable: money. In addition to money, the government prints postage stamps and runs the Government Printing Office. Furthermore, productivity is measured in services as well as goods. The productivity lost due to furloughing of Forest Service personnel has been well documented during this shutdown.
The government also performs annual studies vital to a variety of industries. The government also funds basic research and development.
The only thing the government does not do is make a profit.
"If a violent person wants to commit an evil act, they'll find a way." I do not buy into that argument. It is much like saying, if a burglar wants to break into a house he will find a way, so let's recall any legislator foolish enough to pass laws against crime, particularly laws that call for stiffer sentences when criminals use guns in the commission of their crimes.
Mr. Bently dont grasp the fact that while our Government does not produce anything they sure buy a whole lot of things that are produced. Thats where the shut down harms production. Also while yes we are a Republic we govern under a Democratic form of Government. We stay true to our Republic by using the Electoral college when we vote. All that was changed in 1787 so its nothing new its just a more BS from the Republicans. If we were a firm Republic we would not have a Country wide vote for President. The House would do our bidding or voting for President and the Senate would for Vice President. Now think about what a mess that would be and if you disagree with me go get an Encyclopedia and look it up. Its Fact while we live in a Republic but we Govern under a Democracy.
