Money spent watering parks will do more to avert crime than the gang who can't shoot straight can...
shhesh, somebody got up on the grumpy side of the bed.
The sad thing is this is all true about our local newspaper.
The staff is mostly made up of interns from Palmer High School who simply sit around listening to the police scanner, and write paragraphs ending with "updates to follow"...which they never do because the paper can't afford any reporters to do the follow up.
Most of the staff is involved in sitting at King Soopers trying to give away copies of the paper which most people refuse, except occasionally those will use them to sleep on around the corner later that night.
Their inaccuracies in stories and the failure of anyone on whom they report to recognize themselves or the events in the articles is legendary...the names are made public but the stories are changed to assure the arrest of the innocent.
Rich, you write humor but your family pieces are the best. Thanks for sharing...your dad sets a high standard.
I saw my father go the same way.
Nothing can prepare you for seeing the person you love the most in this world, who was so strong and so smart, reduced by dementia.
I'm so sorry for all involved. Bless you all.
Eyes welled-up. So very well-written, Rich. My utmost to you and your family.
You have a special dad. Tell him we all said hello and that we love his son's work.
This is just how out of touch Mayor Bach is with what is happening in this town. No $15 an hour job industry that he promised, families on food stamps cause they make less than $12 an hour without benefits, many working two part time jobs at under $10 and hour, and the rents in this past year have increased by $200-$300 A MONTH! This is reality, not saying your going to end homelessness when may are not even homeless and still can't make it in CS's economy!
