Re: “Opioid limits are hurting some, who say they need the drugs

Yes Andy- and it does suck. No ones asks for this and likes to deal with this. It is a strict process and I walk on eggshells. I cannot even see if MJ would help me as it violates my contract.

I am not having issues walking and suspect it's tied to my spine problem.

So easy for others to make judgements on situations they have not gone through or dealt with extremes such as yourself (and me for that matter).
I am so tired of it. I do understand it to an extent. However, people should open their minds up (and hearts) and truly reflect on everyone who is affected. Should we simply take the approach of taking us less than useful individuals and drop us off in the woods as was done in the past in some ways? Understanding the full scope is very critical to this issue.

If we need more restrictions- so be it. As long as those who sadly and truly require these necessary evils can still live at least a modicum of life vs. dying from pain which I know I certainly would. I have zero interest in using needles and street drugs. I'd really prefer to have my old life back.

Good luck to you.

Include me in the, "must haves" and being impacted by CDC guidelines/rules.

With script in hand and carefully working with my doctors, I need my opiate script just to function as nothing else works.

Re: “I-25 widening project eyes more funding

I was ready to vote in favor of the ballot measures to keep funding for expanding I-25, but I'm not going to vote in favor of money going to create toll lanes. That's ridiculous.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

This has been proven an absolute lie my Mikey Weinstein which he is very good at doing to make him look good. Even a pagan refutes Mikey's claims. I demand that Mikey publically renounces his statements and apologizes to all Christians - http://christianfighterpilot.com/2017/10/18/pagans-dispute-mikey-weinsteins-claims-of-forced-christian-event/

Re: “The Indy's picks for the 2017 Coordinated Elections

Storm water infrastructure should already be a budgeted item, since the need is obvious and ongoing. No one is explaining why it is not already in the budget. Until I see a reason for the failure to budget for storm water, I see no basis for approving a new stormwater program.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

Mikey--Thank you for articulating the predatory, opportunistic, and base nature of Christian fundamentalism. And thank you for holding Lt. Gen. Silveria accountable for this clear omission of people who are transgender, lgbq, or of another faith or no faith. I personally commend your efforts and hope you continue this important work.

Re: “UPDATE: Felony charges dismissed against John San Agustin

I have entered this race to change the culture in the Sheriff's Office, provide some new leadership, and to restore the public trust. The endless lawsuits must stop and fiscal discipline return. We've been penning a series about the money issues there. Here's the latest. https://angley4sheriff.org/2017/10/20/foll…

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Mayor Suther's was testy and almost seemed to be yelling at the audience while he blamed Bruce for pot holes and rain water. Wasn't it BACH and a most conservative Council that signed off on a Delivery system that required a revenue stream? Yes it was. Wasn't it BACH that screwed around with PPRTA so the City didn't receive the money it had in the past for pot holes - Yes it was.

Stop blaming Tabor for poorly worded ballot measures that do not ensure that once approved would allow increases without voter approval. The lady for d11 was not well voiced on several items.

Vote NO all around!

@JamesTurner You wrote: "If your goal is crowd defense, you should have side arms not rifles. Look at the secret service."

Are you kidding? You don't know much about the Secret Service. Do a Youtube search for "Secret Service fake arms" and watch the video. Yes, the agents walking along with Trump and his family have fake arms in their jacket. Why? Because each has one real arm exposed and one real arm under their long coat. And what are they holding under their long coats? Short rifles.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ballots are out. Points pro and con have been made in various venues. Is it your opinion the stormwater measure 2A will pass or fail? Thank you.

Thanks for the update on the article. The corruption in Bill Elder's Sheriff's Office is slowly coming to a boil.

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

That CAN group sure was 'ready to be arrested'. They went to martyr themselves and been bragging about being arrested ever since. They want to be called heroes. Did they not tell Nat they want to go to trial, which is their right, because of hidden evidence? One of them paid the ticket took a year on probation. They were bragging about being arrested. One person who was on probation from the getting a ticket for the 'sit stand' protest didn't join them for that reason. Sorry Debra that the other women didn't tell you they were out to get arrested because they brag and brag and brag about it. I'm still not sure how getting a ticket is being called being arrested. You were all free to go once outside the building.

That CAN page came down fast with all the conversations about getting arrested and collecting money for the 'COS 4'. The organizers since figured they are gun toting socialists and had to re-brand because they aren't 'leftists'.

Mnchhausen Activists: A disorder wherein those feign being an ally to draw attention and sympathy.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ms Cathey

Jill Gaebler chose to run for office and become an elected offcial giving the people a council of three members who appear to be able to understand and grasp numbers and six who appear continually perplexed by them.

The three who appear to have the ability to read their packets and understand the information therin are opposed to 2A.

As an elected official, the comments made verbally or in print by Jill Gaebler are fair game to be refereneced as Mrs. Carno. The statement below appears to be an accurate reprint of what Jill Gaebler actually said.

"City Council member Jill Gaebler says nobody should get a pass, and I agree with Gaebler."

This statement has been attributed to Mrs. Gaebler in different press organs and appears to be a true version of what she stated.

How is it 'less than truthful' on the part of Mrs. Carno to quote accurately what was stated or to reference Gaebler?

She said it. She owns it.

What might benefit the process is for Mrs. Gaebler to engage her brain before putting her mouth in gear. And rather than run for public office, consider becoming a door greeter at Walmart or something less demanding of critical thinking skills.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Laura Carno was less than truthful, invoking Jill Gaeblers name when Jill is not on her side...
