Re: “Green Mountain Falls homes hit with mudslides, little help available

"Not only that, but its also almost impossible to find insurance that covers mudslides even if the affected residents had flood insurance, that only covers water damage, not debris."

That didn't sound accurate, so I did some searching on-line:

"Q. Can I get home and business insurance coverage for mudflow?
A. Yes. Mudflow is covered by flood insurance, which is available from FEMAs National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) and some private insurance companies. Like flood, however, mudflow is excluded from standard homeowners and business insurance policiesyou must buy the coverage separately."

"Federal flood insurance is available for homeowners, renters and business owners; policies cover overflow of inland or tidal waters and unusual and rapid accumulation or runoff of surface waters from any source. NFIP flood policies can be purchased directly from the federal government or through FEMA-authorized insurance companies and agents."

It only took a couple of minutes to find the right insurance to cover this. The same few minutes it would have taken these homeowners to find. But they didn't. And they lost. And now they are mad that the rest of us taxpayers aren't being made to bail them out. I'm glad we are not. I pay a lot of money for insurance. Including flood insurance.

Sorry your house got messed up. Not sorry you are going to have to pay for it yourself after not bothering to take the time to find the right kind of insurance.

Re: “Monument rehab project stirs debate

"...because the county must follow its own development rules."

LOL..... The BOCC ignores it's own development rules all the time.

Re: “Colorado Republicans mock sexual assault charges against Kavanaugh

"The time for believing women is now," wrote Rep. Faith Winter (D-Westminster), who is running for reelection."

No Faith, the "time for believing" was 36 years ago when this event allegedly occurred. If you aren't going to say anything for 36 years until you suddenly see an opportunity for political gain, or even book rights, then perhaps you should just suck it up and keep it to yourself.

Re: “Ops plan directed officers in Flick shooting to identify themselves

Nothing new here. We've been saying all along that this whole op was botched, that they didn't follow protocols or common sense. One of the involved EPSO detectives has quit. The EPSO Investigations Commander has also. He shouldn't have ever been brought in to begin with. He formerly only rose to the rank of Sergeant, and not a very good one, before Sheriff John Anderson demoted him and he left in disgrace. But... Elder brought him and and made him a Commander. Speculation suggests that it was done because Elder knew that Cmdr. Hatch was present when Elder was in the home of a murdered EPSO employee way back when. Nobody knows what he did in there other than the fact that there was a long delay in calling out the investigators. The whole thing stinks.

Re: “Allocation of funds to ease crime victims’ trauma lack full disclosure

"the board being unaccustomed to outside scrutiny."

Isn't that always the case? Government Boards not liking it when the public, who employs them, wants to know what they are up to?

Re: “Trump administration proposes historically low refugee ceiling for 2019

On September 12, the US Census Bureau made a press release and in that release reported that "The nations official poverty rate in 2017 was 12.3 percent, with 39.7 million people in poverty."

39.7 million people in poverty in this country. Until we figure out how to help out our own people, and no more of our own citizens are suffering, we don't need to be filling up the country with more.
