Re: “Unite Colorado backs unaffiliated candidate in House District 18

Looks to me like they are trying to kick Democrats out of the State Legislature, and help Repubs gain control. That's a shame because the Democratic-controlled state legislature has done a good job governing since Speaker Andrew Romanoff brought them together in the early 2000s. The obstruction and dysfunction are on the Republican side of the aisle, they killed so many deals last year -- like the fix for roads, their refusal to meet in special session to fix the marijuana tax mistake that had been made, refusing to fund the State energy office because they don't like renewable sources of energy, and on and on. The entry of this woman into the HD 18 race could ensure a victory for Repubs. They are generally not competitive in HD 18, as it has been held by a Democrat for the past 10 years, but if she siphons off enough votes from the Dem, the Repub will win. As a newbie with no experience, she hardly can win. Their strategy is suspect..... 3rd parties have a history of being spoilers.

Re: “Salvation Army warming shelter gets cool response from some — but not all — neighbors

So much free time; so much trash on and around our bike paths. It would be nice to see some "services" by the residents of this "human services shelter".

Now somebody will respond with a guilt trip along the lines of 'why aren't you picking up trash' ,or 'what have you done', or 'have you visited the shelter's and volunteered'. Or 'some of these people have jobs and they still live at the shelter'. "Where will they put the trash"?

All the trash and junk came from somewhere. If a person is so cunning as to be able to live outdoors in Colorado; how can they not figure out where to put any amount of trash they pick up?

It is very charitable, Christian, and benevolent to provide resources for those in need.

We don't see much being done in return.

Re: “Transit Mix bid for a new quarry faces strong opposition

Meanwhile; hundreds of transients seemingly use Monument Creek, Bear Creek, Shooks Run, and Fountain creek as a bathroom. No permit required.

Raw Sewage? No problem.

Treated potential runoff from a construction site that is also generating economy? Terrible.
