the meow grabber only stated you're fired after the leak proved he was involved in all the mess. now the attention is aimed at him and he's trying to deflect attention at the leak and not how he knew all along of this mess and did NOTHING!!! typical repubicans will investigate a dem for years and come up with nothing but when everyone knows there are repubs behind this mess they don't want any investigation... HYPOCRITE lying sacs all of them.
A face to face session with a strong moderator featuring Mr. Skorman and Mr. Fowler, the CSF endorsed candidate - on how best to address the three top issues facing the city should be illuminating. Then Mr. Fowler could go back to his day job.
Richard's a hell of a class act. Not sure there is anyone with a better understanding of our city government than Richard Skorman in town. And he's a got a good sense of humor.
Rather have a Chuck than a Chard anyday....
I already feel pretty secure, but I'll never feel too smart. Unfortunately, NPR is typically distrusted among conservatives, so he's unlikely to change his mind.
I've always enjoyed a nice, crisp Chard.
Do you hand your dollar to the beggar standing on the median or do you hand it to a non-profit homeless organization. At the moment neither seems to be a solution.
homeless charitys are fake......thay say thay give but thay do not
Ok? www.coloradoprogressiveparty.org is socialist republican? Wuut? But the article says "you don't have to be Democrat"...hmmm. I say every person gets one acre when born, no silly governments.
Really? Third term? How about strict term limits and transparency? Progressives like Bernie promise free college in health care..wuuuuht? www.ColoradoProgressiveParty.org
We live in a culture of instant gratification. For many, it is hard to accept that after five years, Waldo Canyon is still off limits and might be for quite some time. But you can't rush Mother Nature. As the article states, "human activity in the canyon can also disturb the fragile eco-systems, further inhibiting the recovery of the canyon." The revegetation of Waldo Canyon should always supercede the public's *desire* to hike there.
Um the thought of local law enforcemwnt taking on this extra reaponsibility will result in lawless in the forest. Have you ever had to dial 911 lately, "your call is very important to us. Please stay on the line, your call will be answered in the order it was received." Local law enforcement does not have the budget or staffing levels to do this.
It's not only the unstable soil/sediment that poses a hazard, but now the tress have become unstable. The tops and whole tress are now falling & breaking when there are high winds. I've seen tops falling off & trees falling over at the roots that are now rotting. Any trails in the burn area would need trees cut up to 100 feet on either side of the trail so that hikers are safe. Rebuilding a trail on unstable soil also posses issues. Without ground cover the soil sloughs very easily and would require a lot of trail maintenance. I'm seeing all these issues at the Flying W Ranch were I built a 6,000 LF equestrian trail for a waterline. I understand people want to hike in Waldo Canyon, but be patient & let the regrowth help stabilize the soil. I've been in Waldo Canyon do mitigation, and have see the devastation.
Why is this film not playing here? On to Denver, I guess.
I'm all for free tuition at state universities! AND SINGLE-PAYER HEALTH CARE! Super! www.coloradoprogressiveparty.org
The issue is somewhat different than explained. Generally, local control is better than federal control for issues such as parks because the citizens that use the parks are the ones that care the most. Local control is better than federal control because citizens have the ability to meet with local elected officials for any issues.
The threat of hikers being arrested by untrained forest rangers is concerning. There are many recent examples where the threat of enforcement has been used by the U.S. Forest Service against the local hiking community:
---At the public meetings for Jones Park, the U.S. Forest Service prominently displayed signs at every meeting with the penalties (jail time and fine) for hiking in the area. While the public continued to use the area, the threat of enforcement was used as an intimidation tactic. No one was arrested, but why threaten the thousands of users that summer? [even Doug Lamborn was run over by the USFS on this issue - his office did hike in protest of the ban].
---At the Bear Creek Roundtable, the U.S. Forest Service continues to push for enforcement of penalties against local hikers (proposed ordinance against off-trail hiking was recently discussed). The Historic Trail is scheduled for closure this summer, and the U.S. Forest Service maintains that local hikers will be dragged into federal court if they hike off-trail.
In the example cited at Mount Herman, I do not understand why the county sheriff would not be able to enforce a ban on shooting. The law to reimburse local agencies for the cost of enforcement seems reasonable.
Misuse of the power of enforcement is the concern. I prefer local control, supervised by an elected official, to what I have seen by the U.S. Forest Service. The criminal activity cited is: local hikers being off-trail. Not much of a crime except to the federal government. Why not leave this to the discretion of the local sheriff?
Bulletin boards are commonly used in schools, colleges and office depots etc. to gather and transfer information. In todays time, it is not possible to convey our message individually so these boards are very helpful, one just need to stick the matter on the common bulletin and everyone will get the news. For all this, use inventive material to make them more eye-catchy and you can easily get such stuff from https://www.hyglossproducts.com/back-to-school-activity-2. I hope you all will like them too.
I read an early draft of Ghostland in 2014 that was written by Jon Orr and Brandon Laney, and I really enjoyed it. Hopefully Brandon gets some credit for his work if this book takes off!
Good luck with it, Jon!
