Commissioners ‘step up’ for public safety; Republican political priorities make no sense

Bob Westby: Firearms: Commissioners ‘step up’ for public security

Citing important security considerations for neighborhood members, the Board of County Commissioners voted at a public listening to on November 15 to broaden an present no-firearm discharge space capturing closure within the Sugarloaf neighborhood. The authentic closure was beforehand designated by the Board in 1980 below Boulder County Resolution No. 80-52. The closure prohibits the discharge of all firearms together with for looking. The closure protects the security of residents, recreationists, and so forth.; and critically college kids as they journey between their properties and faculty buses. For particulars, discuss with Daily Camera story from November 16, “Boulder County commissioners ban sport shooting, hunting in Sugarloaf neighborhoods.”

The residents of Sugar Loaf have sought this safety for over 10 years by means of the then-current Boards. The present Board, commissioners Claire Levy, Marta Loachamin and Matt Jones, took the initiative and offered the management to handle and act to place this closure in place. The residents of Sugar Loaf wish to acknowledge and publicly thank the Commissioners for making public security a precedence.

A lesson discovered from the implementation of the unique closure was the necessity for efficient enforcement and compliance. The enlargement not solely provides contiguous areas in crucial want of safety however may also considerably improve enforcement and compliance by offering readily identifiable, “on the bottom” space boundaries. The Sugar Loaf residents have volunteered to cooperatively work with the county in a “neighborhood watch” like capability to assist guarantee optimum implementation of the expanded closure.

Thank you once more to the Commissioners!

Barry Aaron: GOP: Republican political priorities make no sense

I see the place Kevin McCarthy and his merry band of House Republicans, exultant of their razor-slim victory in retaking the House (regardless of a traditionally poor efficiency by the minority get together), have fastidiously examined all an important and regarding points going through Americans, together with local weather change, inflation, the financial system, power and reproductive freedom, and have now formally introduced their primary precedence within the coming session: Hunter Biden’s employment by a Ukrainian firm a number of years in the past. (As if this hasn’t been rehashed dozens of instances already.) Their subsequent precedence, I’m guessing, when that fiasco’s executed: investigating Hillary Clinton’s e mail server.

And they surprise why there was no “crimson wave.”
