Re: “Going All the Way

This is a great article, showing so many different perspectives, from those who are truly facing the end of life and the decisions that come with it. It is probably unrealistic to think we know what we will truly feel when we are faced in with those decisions ourselves. I find it encouraging that our generation is talking about death, and thinking about how we want the end of our own life to be.

I am hopeful that Colorado will revisit the laws surrounding physician-assisted death, also known as physician-assisted suicide. Currently there are 4 states that have legalized physician-assisted suicide, but Colorado is not one of them. Those states that have the Death with Dignity Act in place allow patients who are terminally ill to end their suffering and go in peace while under the assistance of a physician. Everyone should be free to choose the comforts they need and request at the end of their life.

This option is not fit for everyone. It is also a very personal and private matter that an individual makes for themselves. A choice, as heavy as this, should be made with the help of a physician, so all of the options are presented before reaching a decision. It helps ease my mind that there are choices and we are discussing them!

Thank you for sharing your article!

Re: “Fed up!

Now I see why she Hates Sheriff Maketa and takes every chance she can to attack him in the Media. He did not support her group or her boy friends causes and actually called them out. Seems Telling that she accuses him of not managing the county's money when he attends the same conference for 1/5 of what she charged the county.

Re: “Fed up!

Nothing between the ears but a Tammy Faye Baker make-up job, and that alone will get you elected in this county.
