The voice of democracy

The voice of democracy

AT LAST! The voice of democracy is heard again in our land! Thank you, Mr. President. The U.S. keeps see-sawing between two political philosophies – democracy and plutocracy – so different that we no longer communicate. This takes a toll on our nation. Republicans are the plutocrats. They believe that the wealthy are smarter and more deserving that the rest of us, that they have earned the right to govern, and that government should be run for their benefit. Their golden age was the ... Full Story

First, Congress should place a hard limit ... Full Story

Slices of Life-The awkward hug

Slices of Life-The awkward hug

    By: Jill Pertler   Some people are natural-born huggers. I learned this about Mike right from the start – he was a hugging friend. Always glad to run into you and willing to prove his point with a spontaneous and heartfelt embrace. Everyone has a friend like Mike. If you don’t, you should. I can’t say he and I were the closest of friends. He just made me feel that way. That’s how Mike was. So, earlier this year when he showed up on the bleachers ... Full Story

Udall Continues Fight for Bark-Beetle Mitigation

By Senator Mark Udall If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound? How about an entire forest? Every spring and summer, the bark beetle epidemic in Colorado’s forests takes on added dimensions. Rather than the green and gold we’ve used as backdrops to family portraits and souvenir postcards, receding snows reveal new swaths of rust-red forest that have succumbed to bark beetles. Colorado is ground zero for the bark beetle epidemic, which has left millions of acres of dead ... Full Story

Slices of Life, Small talk

Slices of Life, Small talk

Small talk not always so small   By: Jill Pertler     I am a small talker. My son christened me with the label yesterday. “Have you ever noticed you make chit chat with everyone you meet?” he asked. His words felt more like an accusation than a question. “You’re a small talker,” he said. I knew he was right. I also knew my blithe banter possesses a power and purpose unknown to non-small talkers. I believe we are in the middle of a ... Full Story
