    Given the daily challenges we all have to deal with, it is easy for us to overlook some of the important events that have contributed mightily to our current status. As with any historical relevance, a key component is not so much the factual occurrence, but rather the emotional connection.
    As time passes and personal accounts dwindle, this emotional connection becomes even more critical yet difficult to achieve. Yet its importance grows.

  • Legislative session a contentious one

    The 2018 session of the Colorado General Assembly ended last week. It was a contentious session that was distracted by sexual harassment allegations, but that ultimately made progress on the highest priority issues.
