Most of the money appropriated for this work by the feds will go into the pockets of bureaucrats who get paid big salaries to regulate instead of work...and the rains will come and the ash will wash into the water system...all the while Rampart Range will remain closed to satisfy someone's control need.
And like all the donations to help the fire victims that went into the administration of places like ESM and nothing but bottled water to the people the money was intended to help, the same will happen here.
We forget these things because the scandal goes unnoticed as El Pomar, Bill Hybel and Thayer Tutt pat themselves on the back for their generosity and head off for another self congratulatory cocktail party at the Broadmoor.

In Sept of last Year (20120 the bus company licensed by this City government destroyed MY Person Property known as my bicycle which served as MY PRIMARY TRANSPORTATION and none of the parties which should have rectified the situation HAVE replace my transportation and I have suffered GREAT financial strain and MUCH EMOTIONAL distress over the lack of transportation and the Extra Expenses.
Where is my check? Oh, I have not been fired from a city job....
It's convenient to forget that women care for children more than men - meaning more time off due to sickness, school issues, etc.
Did the mayor competitively bid all these consultant positions?
Just one more douchebag heading to Phoenix, the most insane state in the nation. He'll fit right in.
This guy is majorally disturbed...this is the sort of person who needs to be watched less they end up doing something horrible...he needs to be checked for guns and explosives, and they need to be taken away if he has any. this is a dangerous fellow who needs to be put on some sort of hold.
And I think we will be introducing non-biological processes into our brain. And according to the Law of Accelerating Returns, that non-biological component of our thinking is gonna grow exponentially. So if you look e-papierosy ahead to, let's say, the 2040s, it's gonna predominate. And so we will be mostly non-biological at that point. But that doesn't mean we're a different person, because we've maintained the continuity of identity all through the process.
But this City government can not afford to replace person property damaged by the Bus Company they license as a Monopoly? (see http://captcommodore.wordpress.com/2013/03… ) And the city government has stooped to censorship by removing all posts on this subject from public foroms such facebook pages (the Mayors Facebook page) I am convinced the mayor will get this comment removed before they even attempt to settle with the ***Victim****
I don't see the big deal. Doesn't everyone get tens of thousands of dollars for doing mediocre work, then getting canned? Seriously, what else are you going to do with all that money? Services, parks, infrastructure? LOL.
Well the Dictator Bach may have been able to buy these people out but at least he was not able, along with the HBA to buy the election.

People and animals have been sickened and died from exposure to sewage sludge biosolids. Surface and ground waters have been contaminated. Sludge consists of a noxious mixture of human and industrial wastes. The US EPA allows Class B sewage sludge to have 2 million colony forming units of fecal coliform per gram of solids. State by state details
of sludge victims who suffer respiratory, gastrointestinal infections, burning eyes, noses and throats, skin lesions, asthma and life threatening diseases, etc.: http://www.sludgevictims.com.
The EPA and waste industry promote Class A
sludge as being pathogen free, for use on home vegetable gardens. Dr. Jordan Peccia, Yale, reports that Class A sludge is NOT pathogen free. He found
8 of the 14 bacterial and viral pathogens survived treatment in Class A sludge. Airborne, bioaerosol transport of sludge pathogens poses the greatest risk to human health. Class A sludge victims: http://sludgevictims.com/Class-A-sludge.ht…
A recent published, peer reviewed health study in North Carolina confirms human health risks from land applied sludge:
The US EPA confirms an ugly new risk in sludge - infectious human and animal prions (think mad cow, Chronic Wasting Disease, Alzheimers and Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease.) http://www.alzheimers-prions.com/
In the July 3, 2010 issue of VETERINARY RECORD, Dr.Joel Pedersen, renown prion expert, Univ/Wisconsin, stated: “Finally, the disposal of sludge was considered to represent the greatest risk of spreading (prion) infectivity to other premises.”

Colorado is so far behind --more progressive states have already figured out how to manage the buget and the needs... sometimes, people skills rather than math skills are needed in Human Services. Colorado needs to look around at other states with systems that work and learn from them. The tax payers deserve better than what CO is doing with that $. CCB's are ineffective and costly- revamp and improve lives!
Ledbetter has long become an ideologue who will never tell you this:
Here is just one of many reasons women average lower pay than men:
“In 2011, 22% of male physicians and 44% of female physicians worked less than full time, up from 7% of men and 29% of women from Cejka’s 2005 survey.” http://www.ama-assn.org/amednews/2012/03/2…
Mind you, these are some of the most sophisticated, educated women in the country CHOOSING to earn less than their male counterparts in the exact same profession.
A thousand laws won't close that gap.
In fact, no law yet has closed the gender wage gap — not the 1963 Equal Pay for Equal Work Act, not Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, not the 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act, not affirmative action (which has benefited mostly white women, the group most vocal about the wage gap - http://tinyurl.com/74cooen), not the 1991 amendments to Title VII, not the 1991 Glass Ceiling Commission created by the Civil Rights Act, not the 1993 Family and Medical Leave Act, not diversity, not the countless state and local laws and regulations, not the thousands of company mentors for women, not the horde of overseers at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and not the Ledbetter Fair Pay Act.... Nor will a "paycheck fairness" law work.
That's because women's pay-equity advocates, who always insist one more law is needed, continue to overlook the effects of female AND male behavior:
Despite the 40-year-old demand for women's equal pay, millions of wives still choose to have no pay at all. In fact, according to Dr. Scott Haltzman, author of "The Secrets of Happily Married Women," stay-at-home wives, including the childless who represent an estimated 10 percent, constitute a growing niche. "In the past few years,” he says in a CNN report at http://tinyurl.com/6reowj, “many women who are well educated and trained for career tracks have decided instead to stay at home.” (“Census Bureau data show that 5.6 million mothers stayed home with their children in 2005, about 1.2 million more than did so a decade earlier....” at http://tinyurl.com/qqkaka. If indeed a higher percentage of women is staying at home, perhaps it's because feminists and the media have told women for years that female workers are paid less than men in the same jobs — so why bother working if they're going to be penalized and humiliated for being a woman.)
As full-time mothers or homemakers, stay-at-home wives earn zero. How can they afford to do this while in many cases living in luxury? Answer: Because they're supported by their husband, an “employer” who pays them to stay at home. (Far more wives are supported by a spouse than are husbands.)
The implication of this is probably obvious to most 12-year-olds but seems incomprehensible to or is ignored by feminists and the liberal media: If millions of wives are able to accept NO wages, millions of other wives, whose husbands' incomes vary, are more often able than husbands to:
-accept low wages
-refuse overtime and promotions
-choose jobs based on interest first, wages second — the reverse of what men tend to do
-take more unpaid days off
-avoid uncomfortable wage-bargaining (http://tinyurl.com/3a5nlay)
-work fewer hours than their male counterparts, or work less than full-time instead of full-time (as in the above example regarding physicians)
Any one of these job choices lowers women's median pay relative to men's. And when a wife makes one of the choices, her husband often must take up the slack, thereby increasing HIS pay.
Women are able to make these choices because they are supported — or, if unmarried, anticipate being supported — by a husband who must earn more than if he'd chosen never to marry. (Still, even many men who shun marriage, unlike their female counterparts, feel their self worth is tied to their net worth.) This is how MEN help create the wage gap: as a group they tend more than women to pass up jobs that interest them for ones that pay well.
Note: To my knowledge, unemployed stay-at-home wives are not factored into women's average wage. Shouldn't they be? Since they voluntarily work for zero wages, factoring them in -- assigning each of them zero earnings -- would perhaps give a more realistic measure of women's average wage.

Birth control is fine...but "we" isn't involved in the sex act...so "we" shouldn't have to pay for it...those involved ought to pay for their pleasure and birth control...not the rest of us...we need to breed personal responsibility back into the gene pool.
GOD FORBID WE GIVE THEM BIRTH CONTROL SO THEY WONT HAVE UNWANTED PREGNANCIES OR ABORTIONS-
One in five teen births are repeats, CDC says Apr 2, 2013 12:59 PM by JD Downing
More than 18 percent of all babies born to teenagers in the U.S. are baby No. 2 or 3, federal researchers reported on Tuesday.
It's bad news not only because it means young mothers aren't getting the message about birth control, but also because babies born to teenagers, especially unmarried teenagers, are more likely to be underweight and to have other health problems, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says.
"Although teen birth rates have been declining for the last two decades, in 2010, more than 367,000 teens aged 15-19 years gave birth," the CDC said in its report.
"Teen pregnancy and childbearing can carry high health, emotional, social, and financial costs for both teen mothers and their children," the CDC adds in a statement.
"Teen mothers want to do their best for their own health and that of their child, but some can become overwhelmed by life as a parent. Having more than one child as a teen can limit the teen mother's ability to finish her education or get a job. Infants born from a repeat teen birth are often born too small or too soon, which can lead to more health problems for the baby."
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg created some controversy last month with a plain-spoken anti-teen-pregnancy ad campaign that used images of crying babies to illustrate the problems faced by children of teenaged mothers.
The CDC's Lorrie Gavin and colleagues analyzed data from two major national surveys on vital statstics and pregnancy risk called the National Vital Statistics System (NVSS) and the Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System (PRAMS).
"Based on 2010 NVSS data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, of more than 367,000 births to teens aged 15-19 years, 18.3 percent were repeat births," they reported.
While 85 percent of mothers who'd had babies before were having a a second child, more than 12 percent of teens had a third and 1.7 percent were for baby number four, five or six.
But there was a slight decline in repeat births, from 19.5 percent of all births in 2007 to 18.3 percent in 2010.
The researchers also looked at whether these young moms were trying not to get pregnant again.
"Of teen mothers who were sexually active, 91.2 percent reported using postpartum contraception after the most recent birth," they wrote.
But just 22 percent used the most effective methods -- a birth control implant or an intrauterine device (IUD). About half used moderately effective methods such as the birth control pill, a patch, injection ring or diaphragm, which about 15 percent used "less" effective methods, such as a condom or sponge and 8.8 percent used no method.
Health care professionals and educators need to do a better job of telling these very young women about their options and helping them use them more effectively, Garvin's team said.
"Teen childbearing has potential negative health, economic, and social consequences for mothers and their children and each year teen childbearing costs the United States approximately $11 billion," the researchers wrote.
"For example, 17 percent of infants who were second teen births were born preterm in 2010, compared with 12.6 percent for first births; 11 percent of second teen births were low birth weight, compared with 9 percent of first births," they pointed out.
Leslie Kantor of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America pointed out that states such as Texas and Mississippi have some of the highest teen birth rates and some of the lowest rate of health insruance coverage.
"When young mothers postpone a second birth, they have greater educational and job opportunities. The best way to prevent teen pregnancy across the board is by investing in effective sex education, encouragingteens to talk to their parents, and ensuring access to birth control," Kantor said in a statement.
"Overall, this data clearly speaks to the importance of the Affordable Care Act - which provides funding for teen pregnancy prevention programs and gives women coverage without co-pay for the full range of FDA-approved contraceptive methods," she added.
HERE'S A WAY FOR CC TO SUPPORT THE LOSS OF GOVERNMENT FUNDS- LMAO!
Connecticut Priest Pleads Guilty to Drug Charge By ALYSSA NEWCOMB April 2, 2013—
The former Roman Catholic priest who earned the nickname "Monsignor Meth" for his role in a cross-country crystal methamphetamine drug ring pleaded guilty today to a federal drug charge.
At a hearing in U.S. District Court in Hartford, Kevin Wallin, 61, changed his plea to guilty on a charge of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute the drug.
Wallin, who resigned in 2011, was the first of five defendants named in a federal indictment in January to enter a guilty plea.
Authorities allege the former pastor had methamphetamine mailed to him by his alleged co-conspirators in California, which he then sold out of his apartment, raking in more than $300,000 in sales.
On six occasions between September 2012 and January 2013, an undercover officer purchased methamphetamine from Wallin, according to U.S. Attorney David Fein.
Federal authorities also used wiretaps and surveillance to monitor the operation, Fein said.

Why not yes on Issue 1?
Tim Leigh is far from clean and not is making sure that "ratepayer" dollars are being spent wisely when it comes to Drake. Instead, he is trying to impress the people in his district with his bizarre antics, disguised as "I ask the tough questions". It's really more like uneducated questions. Leigh was the one who said "better and cheaper technology was available", but has produced no examples. You call that clean behavior or honest? Is that what you wanted him to do? The citizens have now "peeked behind his curtain" and now see what kind of person he really is.
