Colorado has a great opportunity to improve the health and protect the safety of its citizens, but it is slipping away because of fear and ignorance.
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has one dim path to retaining his seat in next year’s election: if Trump becomes popular in Colorado.
Sen. Cory Gardner sure picked a weird time to finally start his “no more dodging questions” policy after years of half-truths and evasions, but I’m for it. While Special Counsel Robert Mueller closes in on Trump’s closest associates — the Nixon-tattooed-Roger Stone the most recently indicted — Gardner suddenly decided that now is the time to endorse Donald Trump for re-election in 2020.
A plot of land, open to any possibility, then ordered by a set of intentions: the town plan. The city street pattern represents the most basic of those intentions. It’s a powerful, resilient element, one too often overlooked as we make our way through our cities and towns. The street plan represents first principles. It’s a template, arising from ideas about how to live: widths of streets, sizes of blocks and neighborhoods, green spaces, functional divisions. All these will govern daily life to a remarkable degree. In the plan resides the resonant structure of the city; its harmonics, a steady hum over which the discordant tune of city life plays. To know a city at the level of the grid and plan is to see the x-ray skeleton of a flesh and blood being.
Gov. Jared Polis immediately began delivering on many of his campaign promises after being sworn in as governor. Last week, he signed an executive order to promote electric vehicles with bipartisan support. In his first State of the State address, Polis announced a bold plan to provide full-day kindergarten to every child in Colorado and opened the state’s unemployment fund to federal employees who are being forced to work without pay during the ongoing federal government shutdown.
It is with a very enraged and dismal heart that I write this post today.
Trump Image Selected For Capitol Portrait In a Colorado Times Recorder report on the portrait of President Trump that’s scheduled to be placed at the Colorado Capitol in April, the artist describes Trump’s expression as, “Serious, Non-Confrontational, Thoughtful.” Readers added their own descriptions of the photo. Here are some of our favorites:
When I was about seven, in the days when color television wasn’t a given in every household, I was thrilled one Saturday morning to see pale colors emerging from the new tv set my parents had brought home. Cartoons would be more fun! I mentioned this to my parents, who were surprised: the new tv set was black and white. My parents quickly figured out that I was colorblind and was mistaking shades of grey for color. Still, I felt fine, and I insisted that I could see color in that set. Obviously it was my parents who had impaired vision. After all, they wore glasses.
I work in the reproductive rights field. Every day my colleagues and I work to destigmatize abortion and encourage people to be open and honest about their own abortion stories. One of the most compelling things we discuss is that most pregnancies are terminated at around 7 weeks. As a matter of fact, that’s when I had my abortion. At 7 weeks along, whatever was hanging out in my uterus was itty bitty and looked nothing like a baby, as the anti-choice movement wants people to believe.
