national signing day: colorado's stock rises


with national signing day coming up wednesday, colorado’s stake in college athletics keeps getting higher and higher.the denver metro area in particular — where recruiters have long dogged the lack of elite division i players — has seen an increase in talent across the board, with powerhouse athletic schools valor christian, cherry creek and regis jesuit each having more than ten division i commits in the cl of 2017.behind that upward trend are a number of factors. for one, this place is a boomtown. colorado was the second-fastest growing state between 2014 and 2015, meaning more kids, a bigger pool of athletes and thus more talent. the explosion of the private training business in the last five years hasn’t hurt either, and plenty of athletes and their families are learning to leverage th

colorado’s untenable child exploitation challenges


as child exploitation continues to grow, tools available to colorado’s criminal justice system to protect our children have been curtailed. that is the take-away from a string of recent events.over the past few weeks, an investigative unit targeting child predators has been shuttered, a police officer dedicated to fighting child prostitution found himself at the center of lawsuit due to his participation in a documentary, and a state senator linked to a sen ionalist blog that claimed california had legalized child prostitution — while proponents say the law in question is meant to combat that very issue by providing resources to prosecute anyone who forces children into slavery. when it comes to child exploitation, colorado faces untenable challenge that demands correction.when the jeffers

lawmakers try a new strategy to help bring condos back to colorado – the denver


a precision-strike approach at the state capitol to reform colorado’s construction defects laws — rather than a comprehensive, catch-all bill — may be the best way to jump-start a condo market that has fallen way behind the recent population boom in the metro area.so says the state’s top democratic lawmaker, house speaker crisanta duran, who this month helped introduce a bill that aims to ease insurance premiums for developers hoping to build multifamily, owner-occupied projects in colorado. it is a first step, she said, to modifying a system that has been blamed by some for scaring away condo builders by making it too easy for homeowners to sue over shoddy work.“​i think senate bill 45 represents a significant change that will have a big impact,” duran said last week. “for years we’ve hea

roe v. wade is a 'jealous god' that demands blood and generates rage


is there a constitutional principle so sacrosanct that it can abide no exceptions? perhaps the first amendment? nope. courts have placed reasonable restrictions on free speech and the practice of religion. you can’t libel someone, nor can you sacrifice live animals. the second amendment? no again, as any number of gun laws attest. one can find reasonable exceptions to just about every constitutional principle.but 43 years ago, trawling through the penumbra and emanations of the constitution, justice harry blackmun found an inviolable right that had somehow evaded the founding fathers: the right to kill a child in utero—mere inches from being fully born, even—for any reason or no reason. read roe v. wade some time; you’ll see it’s a conclusion in search of reasons, an exercise in “raw judic
