Findings from Hasan Family Foundation on Plagiarism

Findings from Hasan Family Foundation on Plagiarism Investigation

From Seeme Hasan Chairwoman Hasan Family Foundation It is the finding of the Hasan Family Foundation Board that the work Congressman Scott McInnis performed under the Senior Fellowship was only a fraction of the work he was obligated to perform under the terms of his Fellowship. Of the little work that he did, he has admitted it was neither fully completed by him, nor fully original. In view of the public disclosure by Mr. McInnis as well as by Mr. Rolly Fischer, it ...

House District 49 candidate Karen Stockley on NISP

Karen Stockley Candidate, House District 49 Berthoud, CO  Guest Commentary One of the biggest and most complex issues Colorado will be facing over the next 100 years is water. I’m Karen Stockley, candidate for State House District 49, responding to my opponent’s opinion piece glorifying the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP). I have studied this issue for many years, and I firmly believe the NISP project is one of the most damaging reservoirs ever proposed ... Full Story

Nikkel and Conway articles nearly identical

Nikkel and Conway articles nearly identical

By Gary Wamsley Since plagiarism seems to be rearing its ugly head, especially where it concerns water issues, I was quite surprised when I read Weld County Commissioner Sean Conway's Guest Commentary about NISP, which appeared in the Denver Post and thought it sounded quite familiar. I looked at the Guest Column submitted to this publication by House District 49 Representative B.J. Nikkel and noted that it was almost identical. Neither of these individuals has made any ...

Fort Collins, CO -- As their latest desperate ploy to push the Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) and its Glade Reservoir forward, the Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District (NCWCD) has printed a bumper sticker that mocks anybody who disagrees, including the taxpaying citizens who fund its budget. Additionally, the bumper sticker ... Full Story

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

Supporting Richard Ball for State Senate

To the Editor, Currently, all of Larimer County except Fort Collins is “represented” by three individuals appointed to their positions by a few conservative Republicans. They support the views of only the most conservative voters. We need broader representation. This year Rich Ball, a lifelong Loveland resident, has stepped up to offer that broad representation. He is running for Senate District 15, which covers all of Larimer County except Fort Collins. Rich was born into a ... Full Story

NISP debate heats up

NISP debate heats up

Please accept this letter on behalf of Troy Bredenkamp, Executive Vice President of the Colorado Farm Bureau. In their recent letter about the Northern Integrated Supply Project, Save The Poudre’s leaders Gary Wockner and Mark Easter don’t use facts, but only distorted opinions to suggest NISP is a hazard to agriculture. They make the false claim that they represent the agriculture community in their opposition to this critical water project. It is unfortunate that Wockner and Easter ... Full Story

Denver Post calls on McInnis to quit the race

Denver Post calls on McInnis to quit the race

In 2005, I accepted a water fellowship with the non-profit Hasan Family Foundation. Part of this fellowship entailed compiling a series of articles designed to promote public understanding of historical water issues in Colorado.

That expert, Rolly Fischer, spent nearly three decades with the Colorado River Water Conservation District, and is well-respected across the state. During our collaboration, he ... Full Story

Statement from Seeme Hasan on Scott McInnis Articles

Chairwoman, Hasan Family Foundation In light of the accusations against Scott McInnis regarding plagiarism of articles to the Hasan Family Foundation, I am shocked, angry and disappointed. Any work related to the fellowship that Mr. McInnis submitted was always represented as final. At no time, whatsoever, did Mr. McInnis communicate that any of the work were “rough drafts. ” Any representation that they were submitted to the Foundation as “rough drafts” is absolutely ...

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

Justin Smith most qualified candidate for Sheriff

First, I'd like to thank Mr. Bruning for 6 years of military service. Next, I'd like to thank Major Justin Smith for his 20+ years of Law Enforcement experience. Justin's credentials for the position of Larimer County Sheriff far outweigh those claimed by Mr. Bruning. Of course, if Mr. Bruning would decide to let people know what experience he had to offer from the missing 19 years of his life, we might be able to look at his experience levels differently. To us, and many citizens of Larimer ... Full Story
