Six days before Election Day, as many Colorado voters were filling out their ballots, Gov. Jared Polis offered a Halloween treat.  He declared the state will give nearly 435,000 Coloradans a one-time payment of $375 cash to Coloradans who both filed for unemployment during the pandemic and earn less than $52,000 a year.  Payments are expected to […]

Keith Nobles, avid outdoorsman and citizen of the Cherokee Nation, has been a camper and backcountry enthusiast for decades.  In recent years, he’s witnessed firsthand the astronomical increase in deadwood and beetle kill tucked in Colorado’s forests — coinciding directly with expanding, out-of-control fires. “Twenty-five years ago, in the Pike National Forest, I would regularly take […]

I’ll be blunt: School districts are failing their students by pursuing remote learning.  Voters should not approve a single tax or bond measure requested by a school district that is not opened for in-person learning or is threatening to go back to full-remote. Unfortunately, districts like Cherry Creek and Aurora are preparing parents for the prospect […]

“Did you or did you not introduce a plan with John Kasich?” the incumbent asked his challenger, with confidence and eagerness in his voice.  “That’s the simple question.” Tragedy has again engulfed our capital city. On Saturday, as attendees left a “Patriot Muster” in Civic Center Park that organizers say was to support the U.S. Constitution […]

“Did you or did you not introduce a plan with John Kasich?” the incumbent asked his challenger, with confidence and eagerness in his voice.  “That’s the simple question.” The camera focused on his opponent.  The tall man, his mouth persistently dry ever since the debate began, quivered as he held up his water bottle.  The man opened the […]

As a socially moderate voter driven more by economic issues, something typical of my millennial generation, I generally don’t talk about “social issues” much.  But Proposition 115, the late-term abortion ban, justifies a column in full support.  That’s because it is the single best thing Colorado’s pro-life movement has ever done to legally limit abortion.  This year, […]

On Friday, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, passed away after 27 years on the bench.  Her legacy as a trailblazer, a go-getter, an intellectual giant and, in the words of her former D.C. Circuit colleague, Judge Ken Starr, “equality’s gracious champion,” is worthy of recognition and honor.  While one can vehemently disagree with her […]

Colorado’s partisan secretary of state, Jena Griswold, has gone postal on the Postal Service with her second lawsuit in a month.  This time, she’s challenging postcards USPS distributed to mailboxes nationwide that presented incomplete information for Colorado.  Her complaint asserts the mailers are an “attempt at voter suppression (that) violates the United States Constitution and federal statutes and must be […]

When I was a kid, one of my favorite games to play with friends was “War.”  Akin in some ways to cops and robbers, we would run around the neighborhood with toy guns and — gasp! — pretend to fire at each other.  We were far from the first kids to play with toy guns. None of […]

When he signed Senate Bill 19-181 into law, Gov. Jared Polis claimed the “oil and gas wars” were “over.”  Yet they really began that very day. Yesterday, Colorado Politics published a cover story on “new ground rules” being developed by the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) as it continues revamping Colorado’s regulatory makeup following the corrosive […]
