Re: “Families of children with disabilities face a new challenge — Medicaid cutbacks

I know these comments were posted years ago but does anyone know if anything has changed? I'm currently watching a 18 month old severely disabled child who can't do anything for herself and probably never will. I feed her every 2 hours and each feeding takes 30 to 45 minutes because of swallowing and sucking issues. She also cries about 2 hours a day no matter how I try to soothe her! I recently found out her mom became a parent CNA to get paid to take care of her but definitely isn't passing it to me when I watch her. I watch her 25 to 30 hours a week for $3.75 an hour! My question is - does anyone know how much a parent CNA makes per hour in Colorado and what the guidelines are for how many hours per week/day you can get paid?

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

After My first 3 months of cannabis oil, My tumors decreased up to 60%! my oncologist was shocked. I am so happy with how the oil has changed my life. Not only do I

truly believe it has been the reason my tumors are decreasing, but also, the oil off my anxiety and sleeping meds! Something that i had relied on so much before, now replaced with a natural cure. The connection we have made with your organization has truly done so much for our family already.

Thank you so much Rick.Feel free to contact Rick for THC cannabis oil. https://web.facebook.com/ricksimpsonoilcur…

Re: “Abuse allegations continue at youth facility

Devereux Cleo Wallace is a dangerous and abusive place for children. I trusted them with my son and he was thoroughly traumatized by both enduring emotional and physical violence at the hands of staff, and by witnessing the constant violence perpetrated by staff on other kids. Have you talked to admissions and checked out the videos and website? Do not believe for a minute that they will swim, ride horses, pet the therapy dog, or get therapeutic care. They create unnecessary distress for fragile, mentally ill kids, then punish them for reacting. Restraints and locking children in the "quiet room" were constant. This is an expensive, private, abusive jail for kids. I can't for the life of me understand how they haven't been shut down. Devereux Cleo Wallace is a house of horrors.

Re: “Helicopter accident report raises questions about 2015 Black Hawk crash

Good reporting. I've studied that truncated report and would add that the fact that it took 18 months to release anything is part of the deception. Slow walking the release of information is a strategy all by itself. Dozens of pages totally blank. Blacked out sections throughout. They operate on tax payer money and are obligated to more transparency. Reading closely one realizes there could have been an inferno if the fuel tanks hand been punctured. Currently Fort Carson is in the process of seeking more helicopter landing zones on both United States Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands in our nearby mountains. It's only a matter of time before their antics set off a really big forest fire. Meanwhile their daily intrusions into that airspace continue to impact the serenity of our mountain landscapes.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited a forum here on the internet on the 5 October 2016, and i saw Akindele. Tovela testimonies on the forum about the good works Dr.Sandy. I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before.I was cured of (HERPES) with the used of natural herbs. I love herbs so much. Most times, injection and drugs are just a waste of time. I was cured 7months ago, i suffered from (HERPES) for 12yrs but with the help of Dr.Sandy herbal medicine, i was cured within few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured Akindele. Tovela from herpes, as soon as i heard she had herpes, i quickly refer her to Dr.Sandy and she was cured too after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 8 persons to Dr.Sandy and they were all cured from their various illness. Have you taken herbs before?. You have spent so much money on drugs,injections,surgeries etc and yet you have no good result to show for it. Contact Dr.Sandy now he is a herbalist doctor, i assured you of a cure if you drink his natural herbs. Dr.Sandy have herbs that cures.

Re: “Colorado's mixed report on transgender issues

I am M2F transgendered and have been getting EXCELLENT care at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System (VAPAHCS) for many years at both hospitals and Outpatient Clinics (OPC), even before the VA had an official policy on the matter.

I encounter Veterans at Palo Alto Division (main hospital) from as far away as Sonora, or even Nevada, who are there because the care there because the care they require is not available where they live hundreds of miles away. The VA offers travel reimbursement for the extra miles but not the extra time needed to make the round trip. All-in-all pretty good I'd say. Ms. Zabel should not be so critical of an organization, VHA, that provides excellent if not perfect care for us Veterans, transgendered and otherwise.

Re: “Al Gore continues to build an army, battle climate change denial

Al Gore should organize another Democratic vote by scientists, what was the last - 95% of the scientists who knew nothing about climate voted with ignorant blind faith in worship of the few who professed to understand climate

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

Zubek should apply to the CSPD and make a difference!! Now that would be newsworthy! But it's much easier to cast stones and always complain instead of suggesting solutions.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

Did they indicate how many failed the physical fitness test? I have seen them out running in the neighborhood around Murray/Galley and a large percentage don't look fit enough to be considered for a police job.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

I'm curious as to how much drive training they get prior to the test? It didn't specify, just that it was inaccurate. The whole trainer flying the drone thing should raise some eyebrows within the police hierarchy.

Re: “CSPD's academy flunks eight due to failing the driving test

"If equipment (uniforms, guns, tasers and body armor) is factored in, one recruit guessed the bill at about $200,000."

Do the recruits get to take their gun, taser, and body armor with them when they leave? I doubt it, so just sensationalizing for reaction?
