Seven years have proven that determination
and a willingness to succeed can't keep a
good group of professionals down. This year
Real Estate West is proud to celebrate 7
challenging years in the real estate business.
We have stood the test of time, while some
real estate companies have not. That speaks
volumes on the drive and determination of
each agent here.
Real Estate West sells ALL types of homes ...
.from foreclosures to estates and everything
in between. Founded in Grand Junction,
Colorado, being locally owned and operated
allows us to make decisions at the local level,
without the corporate maize to negotiate. Each
and every one of our agents share in that small
company, business next door philosophy, and
we are always looking to add new agents who
believe that less is sometimes more.
We offer everything that the big box companies
offer and we keep all of our commissions right
here in Mesa County. From price counseling
to negotiating, to staging a home .... we do it
all. Our service to our buyers and sellers is
second to none.
Stop in during the months of April, May, and
June and wish us a Happy Birthday! We'd love
to share some coffee with you and get to know
you.

in the ANB Building, and across the parking
lot from the Ale House, we look forward to
meeting you .... and helping you reach your
real estate goals!!

Grand Valley Matters...
Silo—Can You Go?
They have been a fixture of the
downtown Grand Junction skyline
for about as long as anyone from
these parts can remember—four
massive 85-foot-tall silo structures,
16 feet in diameter, (partnered for a
number of years with stout rectangular silos, as well)—south of Main
Street on Seventh. And, for five
score and some years, these silos
have been part of important economic activity and development in
the Grand Valley. Even surviving a
massive 1974 blaze that destroyed
much of the surrounding area—in
fact, reports of seeing smoke from
as far south as Delta have surfaced
in the years since—the silos still
stand, serving as a landmark to a
time long past in Western Colorado.
For eons, the property operated
as a feed mill, until the Mad Cow
scare of 2003 tightened restrictions
on the handling and treatment of
feeds. With new feed handling regulations, the local feed mill business became cost prohibitive; the
silos emptied, the warehouse went
dark. A new business was born
from those ashes—a specialty fish
food manufacturing business. The
business was unpopular locally for
the aroma-pollution it created, and
transportation and material costs
swallowed any profitability. The
aquaculture business failed; and,
by the late 2000’s, the future of the
longstanding property on South
Seventh Street was very much in
doubt.
In January of 2014, Grand Junction native Joe White and wife Mita
purchased the 27,000+-square-foot
property with a very different vi-
sion in mind… And Get Air at the
Silo was born. The vision for an inter-connected trampoline park began in Chile when Joe, an alum of
Colorado School of Mines, wanted
out of the cyclical nature of the oil
and gas work that had taken him
from Colorado to South Africa,

then to Australia, New Mexico and
beyond. Joe had acquired a love of
rock climbing while abroad. The
memory and potential of those silos, (the property was owned for
many decades by White’s father,
and Joe had spent much of his
youth there) fueled by the imagination and intention of the Whites,
led to the realization of an opportunity unlike any other within
hundreds of miles.
Get Air at the Silo is a scalable,
world-class trampoline park, complete with bouldering and climbing
opportunities, bounce-houses, and
parkour training. Get Air features
over 20,000-square-feet of floorto-wall indoor trampolines with
delayed-view recording cameras
to make sure your friends see all
your sick moves; a dodge ball area
with angled sides that will lend to
a game experience unlike anything
else for groups of friends, school
RoadTrippin’
and church youth groups or even
the solo practitioner looking for a
pickup game. And just wait until
you can teach Lebron James some
of your dunk skills acquired from
playing in the air-jam basketball
area. Plus, not failing to mention
the 1,600-square-foot studio that
Mita, a Pilates instructor, fashioned
into one of the Grand Valley’s only
Pilates studios—Better Bodies at
the Silo—which also houses yoga
and Zumba classes.
Future upgrades will include
retrofitting those century-old iconic silos into an unmatched indoor
and outdoor rock wall climbing
experience and the addition of an
America-Ninja-Warrior-style obstacle course.
Energy efficiency features of
the facility included infrared heating over forced air, swamp-cooled
air over air conditioning and improved insulation throughout.
Vending machines will provide
refreshments, and birthday parties are privy to a special pizza
partnership with Junction Square.
For the majority of folks, $12 gets
you a 90-minute jump session. For
the smaller and shorter kids, a special bounce-house section carries a
lower admission price.
As I write this, the renovations
and remodeling work of the property are nearly complete. Get Air’s
scheduled opening was set for
the last weekend in April, so barring any setbacks, the park is now
open. Clearly, a one-of-a-kind exercise and entertainment experience
in the Grand Valley, Get Air at the
Silo and Better Bodies at the Silo
offer adults and children a muchneeded energy release and play
opportunity.
Get Air at the Silo is located at
714 S. Seventh Street across from
the Daily Sentinel building. Find

“I would definitely travel to Europe! Paris and Italy would be my

I’m a hopeless romantic. Kissing
an English-speaking, European
boy with an accent under the Eiffel
Tower sounds so magical. And
think about a little cottage in Italy,
with fresh-squeezed wine every
day, giant windows with white
drapes; just enjoying the breeze in
my hair, and my feet kicked up.”

Greece, to visit museums and learn

summer downtown, with new
life, new art, new events and activities—and more reasons than
ever to come on downtown and be
a part of it all. We think you’ll be
glad you did!
May 3 was the formal installation day for new art pieces in
Grand Junction’s Art on the Corner collection. Some pieces in the
collection will become favorites of
Main Street strollers; others will be

off after a year here to some new
destination; and some few others
will find their way into the city’s

dren. Each Symphony Storytime
concludes with the Instrument
Petting Zoo, another Grand Junction Symphony education initiative that gives children the opportunity to hold and try to produce a
sound on several different orchestral instruments. Presentations
were held in the fall of 2013 and
spring of 2014 focusing on string
instruments and brass and woodwinds and percussion, respectively. Through the generous funding
by the Bessie Minor Swift Foundation, the GJSO is not only looking
to expand the number of presentations offered during the year but
will explore opportunities to visit
other Library branches and involve more musicians at each presentation. The Bessie Minor Swift
Foundation awards grants to programs that provide direct service
to help with the implementation or
expansion of literacy programs for
children who are below grade level
or experiencing difficulty reading;
to develop reading and writing
skills at all age levels; and to develop programs in the arts, languages

engineering and mathematics) for
preschool, primary and secondary
school-aged students. The GJSO

DOWNTOWN EALING
A Very English Lady,
Marigold Hoare, 80… and Tea Dances
Editor’s Note: This entry comes
from Jeffery Taylor, resident of Ealing,
London, England, former dancer and
currently dance critic and arts feature writer of the Sunday Express and
Vice-President of the British Critics’
Circle. By Jeffery Taylor,
our man in the UK
First through the doors last
Tuesday at London’s Royal Opera
House for the first of this season’s
Tea Dances was Miss Marigold
Hoare, 80, retired Women’s Royal
Naval Service Wren No 92092.
As well as being a keen ballroom
dancer, Marigold is clearly proud
of her Navy career and carrying on
a family tradition.
“We have at least one admiral
in the family, so it was my duty,
really. Marigold was 18 when she
joined her beloved Wrens, leaving
behind her sheltered background
of private schools, places in the
country, and doing good works.
“Thank goodness I missed Coming
Out as a debutante,” she says. “My
coming out was in the Sergeant’s
Mess,” she boasts. Instead of the
social whirl, Marigold discovered
a world to be proud of. “Yes,” she
says, “I was proud to serve King
and country.”
Marigold’s first day of military
life, stationed at Mill Hill training
depot, was anything but heroic. “It
was a bit of a shock finding oneself
on one’s knees with a scrubbing
brush in your hand. I’d never held
a scrubbing brush before. I thought
I was going to sea, but scrubbing
came first. A lot of girls of my generation,” she points out, “looked
on the services as a liberation.
Imagine the giddy delights of a girl
from a conventional household,
where meals were strictly timed, of
going to the mess at three in the afternoon and ordering baked beans
on toast. It was amazing.”
Standing in the Royal Opera
House’s Floral Hall, watching one
of the popular afternoon tea dances held during the summer, the
memories flood back.
“The highlight of those early
days was the liberty boats that took
us to twice-weekly dances,” she remembers. “In London it would be
the Café de Paris or the Ritz Hotel,
but usually it was village halls or
aerodromes.”
But the discipline of a strict upbringing ran through Marigold.
Service life has become synonymous with a sexual free-for-all, but
not for Marigold. “Our romances,”
she recalls, “were very harmless;
pregnant girls, called ‘used empties’ were shipped out, but it all
rather went over our heads. I remember a petty officer walked me
home to the Wrennery and asked
for a kiss good night. I replied certainly not and turned on my heel
highly insulted. And—can you
imagine—most of us at 18 had
never drunk alcohol except for a
glass of claret on birthdays. It was
the way we were brought, all that
tradition meant a lot to us. Those
social conventions glued society
together in those days. It’s all gone
now.”
And Marigold’s stories of life
in uniform all have the giddy innocence of an Ealing comedy.
“In Ceylon,” she recalls, “a tree
branch reached over the wall from
our cabin to the road, and after a
dance we girls scampered back to
the Wrennery to be counted in at
lights [out]. We huddled in bed in
our fancy clothes and said ‘goodnight, Ma’am.’ Then maybe 20 of
us tiptoed out again single file in
our finery and high heels out of the
window, along the tree branch, and
into the arms of waiting admirals,
brigadiers and generals, in their
rickshaws, all helping us Wrens to
break the rules.”
On another occasion, Marigold
remembers the 1940s version
of skinny-dipping in the Indian
Ocean, she in her petticoat, he in
his underpants. “When we finished
our swim, we discovered all our
clothes were stolen,” she says. “I
had to walk back to the Wrennery,
surrounded by wise-cracking male
ratings. It was one of the worst moments of my life. A young woman
feels remarkably defenceless in a
wet petticoat.”
And at that point, an elderly
male hand was extended her way,
which she eagerly grasped, and
she elegantly waltzed away from
me, a free spirit, as always.

The Day Vinny Kicked
Butt
I sat at the dinner
table one evening,
instructing
youngest
son
Vin,
then
a
Kindergartner we
called ‘Vinny,’ on the rudiments
of eating rice with a fork. For the
first time in my checkered culinary
career, the rice actually had fluffed,
and flurries fell from every forkful
Vinny raised to his mouth.
I gave up and got up to get him
a spoon. It was then I heard Vinny
say, “I got cut today.”
I didn’t panic. Most of Vinny’s
cuts had to be examined by electron
microscope to be appreciated, and
I was sure his comment was just
one more bid for a Band-aid.
“You got cut today?” I asked.
“No-o-o,” Vinny frowned. “I
said: I kicked butt today.”
My own forkful of rice settled
like a skiff of snow in my lap.
“You what?”
“I kicked butt.”
“He did, Mom!” Newt, then
about eight, interjected. “This
second grader at the bus stop
shoved him really hard in the head,
and Vinny slugged him.”

Dear TSA,
Hi, it’s me again. I’ve contacted
you so many times in the past that
I suspect you have some sort of
file on me by now. I hope this file
also contains all the harmless stuff
that you’ve confiscated from me
over the years. And I don’t mean
an itemized, written record of the
stuff—I mean the actual stuff. I’d
like that really expensive bottle of
hot sauce back some day.
Anyway, I’m happy to see you
in the news once again, as I know
how frustrating it can be when
nobody is noticing you. As Oscar
Wilde said, “There is only one thing
in life worse than being talked
about, and that is not being talked
about.” Mr. Wilde also once said,
while coming through customs:
“I have nothing to declare but my
own genius.” Funny how that sort
of comment made today would
probably get you hustled away to
a detention center somewhere, but
that’s a topic for another day.
Today I want to tell you a story
about the time I went to watch the
sheepdog trials in my home state
of Colorado. I know that sounds
like a random transition, but stay
with me.
Now, I don’t really know anything
about sheep or sheepdogs or the
art of sheep-dogging, but it just
seemed like it might be something
interesting to do. I was watching
the action from the bleachers, the
“action” being a guy making a dog
run around a bunch of sheep in a
field. It really is pretty amazing to
watch, though I was clearly missing
some of the nuances, as other
spectators routinely applauded
at moments I wasn’t aware were
applause-worthy. However, there
was one moment that I understood
perfectly. Right in front of the
bleachers was the pen full of sheep
waiting to be carted out into the far
end of the field. There was a guy
standing next to the gate—I’ll call
him Roy—whose job it was to keep
the sheep inside the gate. That
was, as far as I could tell, his only
job. When the truck would come
for more sheep, he’d open the gate
to let them out, then close it when
he was done, then stand there and
wait to do it all again.
At one point, Roy failed to close
the gate properly, and the sheep just
came pouring onto the field—the
field where the actual competition
was going on. Everything ground
to a halt, and the stray sheep had
to be herded back into the pen.
People applauded. I suspect Roy
was given a bit of a talking to after
that.
BOSS: Roy, what did we tell you
about letting the sheep run onto
the field?
ROY: Uh…either that I’m
supposed to, or not supposed to.
Remind me again.
The rest of the competition
continued without incident, but for
me it never matched the excitement
of the errant sheep flowing onto
the field.
See where I’m headed with this?
You, TSA, you are like Roy. Your
one and only job is to keep the
gate shut. I know you sometimes
get distracted by other things,
like confiscating breast milk and
toothpaste and running your
hand along the inside of people’s
waistbands; but keeping people
from crawling into wheel wells
before takeoff needs to make its
way back up your priority list.
Sure, we all got off lucky with this
one, but what if that stowaway kid
had had a bottle of water with him?
Or more than 3 ounces of roll-on
deodorant? Or a snow globe?
I realize that soon TSA
regulations will be altered such
that passengers will not be allowed
to bring any checked or carry-on
luggage, no personal items, no
shoes, jackets or pants, no shirts
or undergarments, no corrective
lenses, no hair, fingernails or teeth.
I know you anticipate the day
when passengers will be stripped,
shaved and hosed down before
being cattle-prodded onto their
awaiting planes, but until that
dream is a reality for you, you
really need to learn a lesson from
Roy’s misfortune. Focus, people…
focus.
As Oscar Wilde once said,
“There are only two great tragedies
in life: one is getting what you do
not want, and the other is…hey…
ow…put me down…hey, where
are you taking me!?”
’Til next time,

ten, crowed, waving a big-brother
high-five for Vinny’s little hand to
smack. “See, Mom,” Dev said, “all
that teasing finally paid off.”
“Say what?” I demanded, nearly
choking on milk.
“You know how you’re always
saying if Newt and me keep teasing
Vinny, it’ll make him mean?” Dev
explained. “Well, you were right—
it paid off!”
“No, Son, I never meant… What
I said was…” I stopped and started
over. “Making Vinny mean wasn’t
a goal I set for you guys—making
him mean is something we want to
avoid, for heaven’s sake!”
“Vinny ain’t mean,” Newt put
in. “He just kicked butt. He had
to.”
“But you’re his big brother. You
were at the bus stop, Newt,” I
pointed out. “Why didn’t you stop
the kid?”
“I would’ve, but Vinny didn’t
need me to,” Newt shrugged.
“Can I have the rest of the cottage
cheese?”
I never even got to my turn-theother-cheek speech.

Goin’ Surfing,
Surfing NSA
A few nights
ago, I decided to
do a little poking
around on the Internet. The Internet
offers a wealth of information and
disinformation, and there was a
day when I would sit in my office
at home and just go from link to
link, reading bits of information,
opinions and virtual garbage that
individuals and groups put up for
consumption.
Now, when I decide to poke
around, I go get the old, anonymous
laptop I bought at a yard sale. I
put it in my car and cruise around
distant neighborhoods until I find
an unprotected wifi network to
connect to. I never sign on from my
house because it has been revealed
that every keystroke you make and
every site you visit is now saved
in the NSA’s database, and your
Internet connection is traceable by
any number of police and federal
entities right back to the very home
you used to think was yours.
Let’s face it, part of the fun of
just poking around was to look at
bizarre sites that exist, but random
links sometimes took you to places
you wouldn’t tell your friends and
family you’ve visited. I remember
one night I stumbled onto a site
where liberal editors of daily local
newspapers were sharing pictures
of their cats. They had all shaved
the cats, and there were a number of
pictures of the tiny naked animals
being cuddled by overweight men
in polka dot Speedos. I didn’t spend
much time there, no more than that
site where white supremacists with
Sticking it to the Man: Cliven Bundy
By Scott Wolford
very bad lawyers at the time, or
they knew something was wrong.
Some legal scholars postulate
that the BLM failed to file because
they knew Bundy had “prescriptive
rights.” If a trespass occurs
regularly for at least five years
without the owner executing legal
action, prescriptive rights allow
the trespasser to use the land.
Besides common law, the
Constitution makes it pretty
clear that states own land. Article
IV, Section 3, Clause 2 of the
Constitution, known as the Property
Clause, states, “The Congress shall
have Power to dispose of and make
all needful Rules and Regulations
respecting the Territory or other
Property belonging to the United
States….” The Property Clause
delegated federal control over
territorial lands up until the point
when that land formed as a state.
From the moment of statehood, the
land is considered property of the
sovereign state. Some legal scholars
believe that, if Bundy’s case was
tried in state court, the outcome
may have been very different.
To me, as a Westerner, this Bundy
case is especially disturbing.
Never mind the heavy-handed
military tactics. And never mind
the disregard for the Constitution.
What bothers me the most about this
case is the inequality. Having our
lands subject to Federal oversight,
while Eastern states have no such
burden, is profoundly unfair;
and it fosters a feeling of secondclass citizenship. Because Eastern
states’ territory is sovereign, they
collect much higher property tax
revenue to fund their schools.
Meanwhile,
it’s
increasingly
difficult for Westerners to compete
economically, because our schools
are not competitively funded,
we have to PAY an outsider to
use our lands, and we have to
expend extra resources to engage
an extra layer of government. The
big-government, big-corporation
oligarchy is out of control.
Luckily,
there’s
increasing
political support to transfer federal
public lands to state ownership.
In January 2014, the Republican
National Committee unanimously
passed a resolution to repatriate
public lands in the Republican
Party platform. Five Western
states, led by Utah, have passed
laws demanding the United States
extinguish title to federal lands and
the United States, so that our
agencies can’t continue to spy on
them. Every major totalitarian
government censors the Internet,
and our government tracks every
keystroke of every computer
connected to the Internet. They
don’t actually censor it, but they
make it known that every site you
visit, every email you send, every
word you type, is stored to be used
against whomever they choose.
So, if the feds show up at your
house and question you about
your visit to an Arabic jihad site, or
if the IRS chooses to audit you after
it discovers you visited Alex Jones’
prisonplanet.com, it’s your own
fault. You should have read the
instruction when you put in wifi
to run Netflix on that new Blue
Ray player. It would have told you
how to put in a password to keep
me from connecting through your
network as I slunk through your
neighborhood, quietly surfing
in the anonymity that used to be
available to everyone.

After

Central High
School in 1984,

attended
Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University on an Air Force ROTC scholarship,
earning a BS in aeronautical engineering in 1989. He served 20 years in the
Air Force, having assignments in intelligence, laboratory research, F-117A
and B-2 flight line maintenance, and
combat tactics development. His recent civilian experience includes manufacturing Tomahawk cruise missiles
with Raytheon and airplane structural
and antenna design with Northrop
Grumman. Scott is retired and is back
living in Grand Junction. He’s currently serving on the Grand Junction
Historical Preservation Board.
Our “Stick it to the Man” hero of
the month is Cliven Bundy. Bundy
runs a cattle ranch near Bunkerville,
Nevada. A few weeks ago, the
Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) forcibly removed Bundy’s
cattle and almost triggered a civil
war. The story is still unfolding at
the time of this writing, so we’re
not certain how it’s going to end;
but some say this story is going
to become American legend, like
John Brown’s invasion of Harper’s
Ferry in 1859.
Bundy is the very definition
of civil disobedience. Because he
was so disgusted with the BLM’s
attitude of “pay us so we can hassle
you better,” he stopped paying
grazing fees some 20 years ago. The
BLM sued him in Federal court and
won. Rather than placing a lien on
his property, the Feds stormed in
with helicopters and hundreds of
soldiers with rifles and body armor,
killed and buried numerous cows
and forcibly hauled off the rest. The
destructive, heavy-handed tactics
were completely out of proportion
with Bundy’s alleged crime.
What is legal and what isn’t
are far from clear in this case. Yes,
Bundy had his day in court and lost.
But another similar case recently
tried found in favor of the rancher,
and the judged referred the BLM
actors to the Justice Department
for suspicion of conspiracy. Also,
why didn’t the BLM file a lien on
Bundy’s personal property? This is
very bizarre. Either the BLM had
turn them over to state ownership.
(This type of legislation was the
mechanism North Dakota used in
the 1890s to obtain their land after
statehood.)
Although Cliven Bundy is
our hero this month, the issue
is far bigger than one rancher in
Nevada. The public lands issue
has been festering for over 100
years and needs to be resolved. To
fight “the man” back East, and to
restore East-West equality, your
assignment is to stay informed and
vote as a Westerner. Watch closely
Utah’s story. And get involved with
the American Lands Council, a
grassroots organization dedicated
to reclaiming land belonging to the
states.
In the next election, make
sure you vote OUT Mark Udall.
(Democrats are opposed to public
lands transfer.) I’m a firm believer
that eventually the moral high
ground of the Constitution will
win out, and Western states will
reclaim their public lands. But we
have to fight for it at the ballot
box.
The Snowden leaks have
shown beyond a shadow of a
doubt that the Internet is now a
superhighway that actually ends
at the government and its agencies.
Anyone who pokes around it at
random should start doing chinups every night to build a few
muscles to protect themselves in
jail. Beat someone up real quickly
to show them you are tough, and
the other political prisoners might
leave you alone… you know the
drill.
If someone had told me ten
years ago that I would be witness
to both the birth and death of the
Internet, I might have laughed at
them, but the end of the Internet is
now in sight. With the revelations
made by Edward Snowden, all the
claims that Chinese hackers were
destroying the free fabric of the
Internet are obviously just smoke.

NSA, was the hacker all along; and

The New Science
of Climate Change
By Jack Bollan • [email protected]
In 2014, it
would be an
indication of ignorance to say that global climate
change is not happening, that carbon emissions are not causing it, or
that humans are not the primary
source of those emissions. A recent
study by the American Association
for the Advancement of Science
and a recent report by the United
Nations Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change leave little
wiggle room.
A number of the changes predicted by the theory of global
warming are happening, including
melting arctic ice, unusual weather
extremes and significant impacts
on plant and animal life. When a
scientific theory gains this level of
consensus among scientists and
when its predictions prove to be
this accurate, we cannot turn our
heads and pretend we are dealing with a Harold Camping or the
numerous other Doomsday crackpots.
It would be, in fact, a case of
ignorance not to know that the
recent studies are notable for admitting that they cannot predict
that global climate change entails
apocalypse. For sure, among environmental scientists are those who
believe that global climate change
will have catastrophic impacts on
life on Earth. On the opposite pole,
however, are scientists who believe
Earth will easily survive global climate change with impacts only
slightly beyond those that are cur-
2014
rently being observed.
“Average” climate scientists
fall somewhere between these extremes in terms of how they interpret what climate models tell them
will happen. They recognize the
complexity of Earth’s climate and
limitations on what can be know
about future technologies or other
systemic compensatory climate
changes not included in existing
climate models.
These scientists make clear that
differences between predicted and
observed values of measurements
of the parameters used by their
models result in a one-in-twenty
chance they may be wrong, which
means there’s a 95% chance they
are right. These moderate scientists dominate the current discussion in the scientific and political
domains.
But among these moderates, the
consensus is that we are quickly
coming upon a point of no return,
where reversing the impacts of
climate change is impossible with
existing technology, and that developing technology that would
reverse the effects will be more
costly than taking action now.
The United Nations study says
that we must reduce carbon emissions by 20% in the next decade
to avoid the extreme possibilities
implied by the ecosystem changes
already being observed. For example, we have not yet seen rising oceans inundate coastal areas.
If we don’t stop, however, we will
see such effects. The result, at best,
will be costly.
Recognizing the political and
economic hardship implied by a
20% worldwide reduction in carbon-based energy sources, the report merely points out that we can
deal now or put it off to be dealt
with a little later with much higher
costs. That is reasonable cost-tobenefit thinking without apocalyptic language.
Sensitive to political realities and
a population that has not studied
the science in great detail, the argument is a familiar one. That argument goes like this: We are certain that global climate change is
happening and caused by carbon
emissions, the result of human actions. The predicted consequences
are underway, including global
average temperature increases,
melting arctic ice, unusual weather
extremes and dramatic impacts on
plant and animal species. When
the average worldwide temperature change has reached 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit above pre-industrial temperature averages, we will
have reached a critical threshold,
with consequences that can only
be reversed by technology that
does not currently exist. Corrective actions, if we pass that point,
will have far greater economic impacts than if we take action now.
Furthermore, it is possible that impacts will be irreversible and catastrophic. Therefore, it is in the best
interest of everyone to take action
now.
Sometimes this type of argument has no effect. People ignore
the warnings because the source is
dubious, the changes too gradual
to be observed or the arguments
unreasonable, practically, morally
or politically. But that is not the
case here. The argument is being
made by groups that are intellectually honest, morally upright and
politically and economically savvy.
We need to listen.

Business Profile
Real Time Pain Relief
Name: Kris Fancher Age: 69
Occupation: retired; owner/vendor Real Time Pain Relief
Hobbies: agility, rally, and obedience with my dog; reading; sewing
Family: single, two grown children, 7 grandchildren
Favorite Restaurant: Leon’s
Goals: to remain an active senior and continue to do the things I enjoy
When did you first find out about Real Time Pain Relief?
One year ago, when I attended an outdoor craft fair. I saw the product
demonstrated, tried a free sample and bought a tube. The next day, I went
back and told them the product was incredible and I wanted to know
how I could sell it.
What type of pain were you dealing with?
I have osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and peripheral neuropathy plus joint replacements in both
hips and one knee.
How long have you had a booth set up at The Grand Junction Flea
Market & Swap Meet?
I’ve been here for 2 1/2 months. I just moved here 3 months ago from
near Las Vegas, and I had a booth at an indoor swap meet there, so knew
I wanted to set up before I even moved here.
How has the response been to the product?
Fantastic! People have not heard about the product, but once they try
it and get almost immediate relief, they are so excited.
What are the benefits a person will get from using this product?
Real Time Pain Relief actually has 3 different products now—rub-on
lotion, foot cream for diabetics, and a brand new skin rescue ointment—
so the specific benefits will vary, depending upon their individual pain.
Generally speaking, the benefits would be not harming their body by
taking oral medications; not masking pain; using an all-natural product;
using a product made in the USA in an FDA-inspected facility; and helping the body heal itself.
What has been the #1 testimonial you’ve heard from a person who
has bought the product?
“This stuff works too good! My pain is gone.”
You can sample Kris Fancher’s Pain Relief products at The Grand
Junction Flea Market & Swap Meet at 515 S. 7th Street. Open Fridays—
Sundays.

take place at 9am Saturday, May 17. The race starts and finishes at the

activities and sights for the kids, including free backyard games, and so
much more! In fact, Fruita’s “Run like a chicken with its head cut off” is

International superstar, accomplished businessman and heartfelt
philanthropist, Vince Neil came to
exemplify all things rock and roll:
the sound, the success, the look
and the outrageous lifestyle.
Vince’s unmistakable voice leads
some of the greatest rock songs of
this generation including “Shout
At The Devil,” “Home
Sweet Home,” “Girls, Girls,
Girls,” “Dr. Feelgood,” “Kickstart
My
Heart,” “Same Ol Situation,”
and the recent “Saints of Los Angeles,” which was nominated for
a Grammy Award in 2009 for Best
Hard Rock Performance. With fifteen years between his last solo album, Vince Neil releases Tattoos &
Tequila on June 22, followed by his
tell all book of the same name later
in the fall.
When not performing, Vince Neil
continues
to expand and
oversee
his latest entrepreneurial
efforts which include
Feelgoods Rock Bar and
Grill in West Palm Beach
and Las Vegas; Vince Neil
Ink, a Las Vegas based tattoo
parlor and apparel shop with
two locations -- one on the Las
Vegas strip and one in the Rio
Hotel & Casino; Tres Rios tequila, a
high quality, authentic Mexican tequila created from the finest Agave
in Guadalajara Mexico; The Skylar
Neil Memorial Foundation (www.
skylarneil.org), a tribute to Vince’s
daughter whom he lost to cancer
in 1995 which has raised over $2
million to help combat childhood
cancer and his latest venture, Vince
Neil Aviation, a luxury air charter
service providing the the rock n’
roll commute on either his Lear 35
or Hawker 700 jets.
Raised on the tough streets of
Compton, California, Vince Neil
fell in love with music as a child,
developing a broad vocabulary
that ranged from classic Motown
to hard rock. As a teenager, he began performing with local bands
and soon discovered both a passion for the stage and a natural
talent as a singer and performer.
He fronted the popular band Rock
Candy before reuniting with high
school buddy Tommy Lee in 1981,
sealing rock and roll history with
the formation of Mötley Crüe.
In addition to selling 80 million
records around the world as the
badass frontman for Mötley Crüe,
Vince Neil also began his career as
a solo artist in 1993. Vince’s Top
200 Billboard albums, Exposed
(which reached number 13 on The
Billboard 200 albums chart) and
Carved In Stone have spurred
Slaughter
Over TWO decades of
Rock and Roll 1990-2014
Before the formation of Slaughter, Mark
Slaughter fronted Xcursion before joining the
Vinnie Vincent Invasion, who had a hit song,
“Love Kills”, that appeared on the Nightmare
on Elm Street 4 movie soundtrack in 1988. After that band disbanded in the late 1980s, two
of its members, Slaughter and Dana Strum,
formed the group Slaughter.
1990 Slaughter hit radio, MTV and the U.S.
touring circuit like a tornado- coming seemingly out of nowhere to roll through everything in
its path and turn it upside down.
Slaughter sold more than five million records in the 1990s. The group had four Top 30
hits on the Billboard charts with tunes such as
“Fly To the Angels” and “Up All Night”, and
toured with bands such as Kiss, Poison, Ozzy
Osbourne and Damn Yankees.
2001 Slaughter was a proud part of a TWO
MILLION selling CD “Monster Madness”
(with – UP ALL NIGHT), the band was also
out touring as a part of the “Voices of Metal”
tour featuring Vince Neil of Motley Crue, Ratt,
and Vixen
2003 Capital records re-released the first
two Slaughter CD’s “Stick it to Ya” and the
“Wildlife” featuring 24 bit digital re-mastering, additional photos, bonus tracks and liner
bomb commercial)
and the Trix Rabbit
(i.e., “Silly rabbit,
Trix are for kids!”).
“Yeah, Yeah, Yeah”
became the band’s
most popular concert song, always
with a unique
ad-lib performance
by Whiteman. With
this album, the
tongue-in-cheek
rock & roll style of
KIX was established.
Their 1983 follow-up, “Cool
Kids” showcased a slightly more
commercial side of the band featuring the title song and the single
“Body Talk.” Somewhat overlooked but a favorite with female
fans was the ballad “For Shame.”
“Cool Kids” later was lampooned
in good spirit on the popular MTV
show “Beavis and Butthead.”
KIX then partnered up with Ratt
and future Warrant producer Beau
Hill and, in 1985, released the hard
rock power house album “Midnite
Dynamite,” featuring a hard rock
single by the same name and the
funkier rock songs “Cold Shower”
and “Sex.” The music video for
“Cold Shower” quickly gained
popularity and was put into regular rotation on MTV. The band
headed west to continue to make a
Energy Performances that feature all of the
Slaughter hits as well as new material. The
Vh-1 Stripped DVD hit the retail stores March
15th, 2006 as yet another Slaughter release.
2007- SLAUGHTER was featured on a pacific rim – compilation CD that was Platinum
within it’s first week of release, Slaughter
filmed many of it’s live performance shows for
a DVD release in
2008, and performed in front of 38,000 people singing SLAUGHTER songs at the world
famed “Rocklahoma Music Fest”, as well as
participated in a full Summer tour with Vince
Neil of Motley Crue. – Of interesting note –
Slaughter’s music has been played more in
2007 on radio and the internet then in the 3
previous years combined.
Slaughter has shown that with perseverance
and sheer talent, a band can survive and win
over the support of fans , regardless of what
others may say about the quality of their music. What’s most important is that their music
is still here and the vast majority of critics who
panned them in the past are not, and that’s as
good as gold.
Here’s to “Slaughter”……….
Here’s to 24 YEARS of Rock n Roll and the
Love Of Music and the Love Of Life……..

name for themselves in such places
as the Sunset Strip, where Mötley
where Mötley Crüe and other glam
metal bands rose to stardom. KIX
was quickly becoming a formidable live band like no other.
KIX went back to the studio to
write more songs. In 1988, they
released “Blow My Fuse,” and
finally achieved fame as it went
platinum.
In 1989, the band released “KIX,
Blow My Fuse, the Videos” with
their now popular music videos
and behind-the-scenes footage. As
KIX finally graduated to arenas,
they regularly opened for such
popular artists as Aerosmith and
KISS and were on successful tours
with Whitesnake, Ratt and Tesla.
The album “Hot Wire” finally arrived in 1991 with the single, “Girl
Money”. While on tour in 1992,
they made a live album, titled “KIX
Live” recorded at the University of
Maryland, College Park. This album was released in 1993 largely as
a contractual obligation to Atlantic
Records. In 1995, the band released
their final album “Show Business,”
on CMC records. KIX broke up in
1995, and Hammerjack’s Concert
Hall was torn down in June 1996 to
make way for a parking lot for the
Baltimore Ravens’ stadium.
Since Kix’ return to the national
stage in 2008 with appearances at
2000 and just missed the cut. “Mötley Crüe recorded ‘Another Bad
Day’ many years ago and I thought
it was one of the best ballads we’d
ever done. When it got voted off of
New Tattoo by the rest of Mötley,
I held onto it waiting for the right
time to dust it off,” adds Vince.
The title song for the album captures Vince’s signature sound with
a contemporary feel that has been
compared to current acts such as
Cavo and Godsmack. “Tattoos &
Tequila” celebrates the rock n’ roll
lifestyle.

KIX was founded in 1978 in Hagerstown, Maryland as The Shooze,
then changed its name to The Generators before eventually settling
on KIX. They were considered one
of Maryland’s top cover bands
prior to their signing with Atlantic Records in 1981. Though often
lumped in with bands that many
consider to be glam metal or hair
metal, the bands popmetal stylings
on the first KIX record drew inspiration from bubblegum pop and
new wave as well as hard rock.
In 1981, they debuted with a
self-titled album “KIX,” featuring
“Atomic Bombs,” “Heartache,”
“Contrary Mary”,”The Itch,”
“The Kid.” “Yeah, Yeah, Yeah”
instantly became a concert favorite. “KIX Are for Kids” creatively
merged the name of the band with
two popular cereals of the 1960s and
1970s, KIX (that featured an atomic
notes written by Mark Slaughter and Dana
Strum – Slaughter toured May-October with
“WHITESNAKE” on the “ROCK NEVER
STOPS TOUR”.
2004- Slaughter released a DVD-A entitled
“Then and Now” that features 12 songs and
50 rare photos of the band over the years. …
Slaughter toured - March – November Headlining Various Venues and playing to larger
crowds then in recent years.
2005 – Slaughter & VH-1 team up with
“Stripped” A CD of unplugged jams which is
kicked off with a asell-out performance in Hollywood, Ca. Slaughter toured throughout the
year and broke new ground with casino performances as well as SRO shows.
2006- SLAUGHTER released a DVD that
features live performance footage and band
camera footage shot over the years. The band
will again be on the road touring doing High
the hits “You’re Invited (But Your
Friend Can’t Come)” (co-written
by Vince with Jack Blades and
Tommy Shaw), “Can’t Have Your
Cake” (co-written by Vince with
Steve Stevens) and “Sister Of Pain”
(co-written by Vince with Jack
Blades and Tommy Shaw).
The International rock icon’s
new album Tattoos & Tequila,
co-produced by Vince Neil, Jack
Blades (Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne, Alice Cooper) and Marti
Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Def Leppard, Buckcherry) is a compilation
of genre defining hits that have
been given the Vince Neil rock renewal treatment and is sure to be
an updated rock lifestyle staple.
Neil’s refreshed collection of classics consists of nine hand-picked,
influential covers, as well as two
new tracks; “Tattoos & Tequila,”
which was also written and produced by Frederiksen and “Another Bad Day,” which was originally
written by Nikki Sixx for Mötley

as well as the album reached critical acclaim with the single reaching Gold and the album reaching
Gold then Platinum in Canada.
Many people consider “Stand
Back” to be one of the band’s greatest accomplishments. This album
provided the hits, “Tonight Is A
Wonderful Time To Fall In Love”
and “I Wouldn’t Want To Lose
Your Love.”
With the release of “The Whole
World’s Goin’ Crazy,” April Wine
became the first Canadian band
to achieve Platinum advance sales

year as a band, with just as busy a
schedule as ever… quite an accomplishment for any rock n’ roll
band!

Is it safe to compare Blue Oyster Cult & Rush? With their deep
elaborate lyrics that take their fans
on a intense descriptive journey.
I’d say the two bands have alot in
common.
But in the early 70’s with the exception of Led Zeppelin and Black
Sabbath, there was not a lot of hard
rock or metal being played on the
airwaves. And even though critics
hailed the first three albums, (Blue Oyster Cult,
Tyranny and Mutation,
and Secret Treaties), as
instant hard rock classics,
FM Radio didn’t give the
band much airplay with
their early tunes about
werewolves
vampires
and aliens
However Critics had
now labeled Blue Oyster Cult “The Thinking
Man’s Metal Band.”
They were so right.
Their constant touring and
word of mouth from fans finally
paid off in 1975 with the release of
the double live album “On Your
Feet Or On Your Knees” which
show cased the amazing talents of
lead guitarist Buck Dharma. The
album quickly went gold and cemented the band as a major concert draw.
It was the following year however that Blue Oyster Cult really
hit pay dirt with the multi platinum “Agents of Fortune” and the
hit single “Don’t Fear the Reaper”. The album was a big hit with
fans and critics alike. And Reaper
was used in horror classics like
Halloween and The Stand. It also
propelled the band to major arena
headliners going head to head
with some of the hottest acts of
the time Aerosmith, ZZ Top and
Ted Nugent.
At this time the band also fine
tuned their hard rocking, guitar
slashing live show with a barrage
of theatrics including flash explosives, fireworks, smoke, strobe
(laughs).
I read at one point that some
groups were trying to apply
some kind of Nazi symbolism to
the logo, and the Jewish Defense
League was planning on protesting at some of your concerts.
Yeah, and it was totally ridiculous; like looking for devils behind trees. BOC has always had a
historical and intellectual bent as
far as what we’ve been
doing, but we’ve never
pandered to devil worship or any of that stuff.
We deal with themes
of good and evil in our
tunes, but we don’t take
a position. The idea that
we have an agenda,
political or otherwise,
silly. If
we talked about the
dark side of humanity, we just laid it out there
and said, “Here it is.”
was always
lights and a laser light show that
was unsurpassed for its time. At
one point the band would jam out
on five guitars and also included
Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma riding motor cycles on stage for the
encore Born to Be Wild. It was a
head bangers dream.
More radio friendly hits followed including Godzilla, Burning for You, Joan Crawford and
Take Me Away and the band went
on to sell 24 million albums.
In Buck Dharmas Words
Are there any particular cover
songs BOC has done that you
like? There’s “Born to Be Wild,”
“We Gotta Get Out of This
Place,” “Kick Out the Jams.” I’ll
ask about “Roadhouse Blues” in
a minute.
I like most of them. The weirdest one we probably ever tried
was a studio version of “Born to
Be Wild.” My philosophy about
covers, in general, is that if you
can’t bring something new to the
party, you really shouldn’t try to
cover a song, but that didn’t stop
us from being foolhardy enough
to try to cover “Kick Out the Jams”
Once the band had a record deal,
some of the imagery its music created might have been considered
controversial, but I had a feeling
back then it was part marketing
hype, as well. The details about
the band’s logo are noted on a
web page I checked out, but I’ll let
you tell your version of how that
symbol became the logo.
That logo was created by the
graphic artist who did our first
two album covers; it really doesn’t
exist anywhere else, but there are
some similar historical antecedents behind it. Supposedly, it
looks like the Greek symbol for
chaos, and an alchemical symbol
for lead. Whether these things are
true, I can’t tell you. But the real
poop on it is that it was created by
a graphic artist, and when we saw
it, we said, “That’s our logo.”

AN ALTERNATIVE STATE OF MIND
It’s been a fast and furious eight years for Kentucky rockers Black Stone Cherry, What started as simply teenage jam
sessions between singer Chris Robertson and John Fred
Young (son of The Kentucky Headhunter’s guitarist Richard
Young), and quickly included classmates Ben Wells and Jon
Lawhon, turned into one of the greatest success stories of the
21st century.
And the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. Southern
rock had remained a constant on rock radio, thanks to staples
as ZZ Topp and Lynyrd Skynyrd, and saw a bit of a rejuvenation on the 2000s thanks to acts such as Nickelback and Alter
Bridge—but, if the torch was going to be passed, it needed
to belong to a band that was whiskey-soaked and deep-fried
Southern; and that’s exactly what Black Stone Cherry is.
In fact, it is this author’s opinion that the band has, through

its three previous album releases, set the standard for the
“new” Southern rock sound and style: a style that pays deep
homage to the predecessors, but quietly and almost inconspicuously takes the genre to new heights.
There isn’t a whole lot of anything new going on with the
band with their latest release, Magic Mountain (May 6th),
but the band continues to move forward with their music,
guns ablaze and rattlesnakes hissing. If there is anything different here, it is the fact that there is a little more “heaviness”
to the album. While not to be considered a heavy metal album, there is definitely enough here to get the attention of
rock and metal fans alike. Part of that may be due to the
band’s recently signing with Roadrunner Records, one of the
most well-known metal labels in the history of music. When

For 25 years, the Art & Jazz Festival has been a Grand Junction tradition and a celebration of art, local and national musical acts, great
food, and local beer and wine. For
2014, the Downtown Business
Improvement District board decided to rename the festival “Art
and Music Festival” to reflect the
breadth and diversity of the music provided. While there will still
be many jazz musicians performing, there are many changes and
additions to this FREE festival on

on Friday at 8pm. Carrie Rodriguez, from Austin, has been called
“the hardest-working woman in
American roots music” (Huffington Post), and it has been noted that
she “can switch from barn-burning
country to noir rock to heartbreaking folk with a grace and ease that
isn’t possible for most artists” (The
Dallas
Observer). She is playing twice
on the Main Stage: Friday at 5pm
and again on Saturday at 8pm. All
musical performances are free!
• Other notable performers
bring great flair and fun to the festival. Jazz bands from Grand Junction High and Colorado Mesa University will also be performing. All
musical performances are free.
• There will be four unique
stages spread out along the length
of Main Street. The Main Stage at
4th and Main will feature headline
acts on Friday and Saturday evenings. There will be three additional unique stages at 3rd and Main
(Monument Stage), in the 500 block
breezeway (Dragon Alley Stage),
and at the 600 block breezeway (4
Tree Alley Stage) where musicians
will be performing throughout the
weekend. The multi-stage layout is
designed to encourage festival attendees to move along the length
of Main Street, browse art, and
find the music they want to listen
to most.
• Many artist booths will be
lining Main Street, featuring the
work of fine artists, artisans, and
demonstrating artists. Artists are a
• Headlining the music this
year are Firefall and Carrie Rodriguez. Firefall, from Boulder, is
well known for many hits including “You Are The Woman,” “Just
Remember I Love You,” and more.
Firefall will play on the Main Stage
include locals Alycia Vince Jazz
Quartet, Bobby Walker Blues Band
featuring Dr. Paul Schnieder, Josefina Mendez, and Shea Bramer.
Ethyl and the Regulars (from Denver) and Jordan Soul (from Utah)
are additional performers who will

and Budweiser products.
• The Downtown Grand Junction Art on the Corner project is
celebrating its 30th year and will
also be debuting new sculptures
during the Festival.
• The Knit on the Corner project
continues in 2014 and will bring a
unique knitted perspective to public art! Look for “yarn-bombed”
trees and other colorful public
street art all around Main Street.

• The Main Street Art School is
back for a third year and is being
run by the Oakley Gallery and the
Grand Valley Art Students League.
Free, beginner semi-private lessons are offered in design, color
theory, alcohol ink, watercolor,
pastel, acrylics, bead jewelry, and
charcoal. There is a $7 supply fee.
Everyone leaves with a finished
work! Students can register in per-
son at the Oakley Gallery. More

• Sunday will feature a local
performance showcase. Musicians
and performers are invited to come
out and perform on the street starting at 11am, or to take the stage at
our open mic at the 3rd and Main
stage at 12:30pm to audition for a
performance slot at the 2014 Farmers’ Market!
The event is sponsored by the

2014 Colorado Riverfront Concert Series
Here’s the scoop on the Colorado Riverfront Concert Series this
year:
Cost: FREE after 15 years (or
more). Tickets are available now
but going fast!
Tab Benoit
The Subdudes
Lineup: Tab Benoit on Thursday,
June 12; The Freddy Jones Band on
Thursday, July 17; and the Subdudes on Thursday, August 14.
What time do they play?: Headliners only this year—no openers. Music 8-10pm. Gates open
at 6pm.
What to Bring?
A lawn chair and money for
food and beverage, etc. Food is OK
to bring in, but your basket will get
looked at by security, so be ready
to open it up. We have pizza, ice
cream and BBQ for sale.
What NOT to bring:
Blankets (not really room for
them and you can’t see over the
lawn chair in front of you). Any
type of beverage container, no matter how innocent it looks. Why? We
hold a rare and hard-to-come-by liquor license in a state park. It’s impossible to search, taste, confirm,
etc., that your water bottle isn’t full
of vodka or your coke bottle isn’t
a rum and coke. Make sense? It
should. There are water fountains,
bottled water and soft drinks for
sale (at very reasonable prices), as
well as beer and wines.

just to name a few things - ideas welcome
Best way to arrive: Carpool with your friends. If
you have four or more in your car,
parking is free inside the park on
a first-come-first-served basis. Less
people in your car, and you pay the
state park their standard entrance
fee of $7. Support the Sate Parks,
and get an annual pass, and you’re
good to go for all the shows—plus
you won’t pay at any state park for
admission. But you still need the
concert ticket!
How do I get a ticket?
Go to any City Market customer
service counter, and get as many as
you want for any show. There is a
$2 processing fee. Why? It cost the
Riverfront Commission thousands
of dollars to print tickets that fans
didn’t use. We couldn’t continue to
waste money like that. We asked
TicketsWest and City Market to
take that part over, but there are
costs associated with printing tickets and staffing a counter, resulting
in a $2 fee per ticket.
Why do I need a ticket?
Ticketing allows the producers
to regulate attendance and to provide the customer with information (on the ticket) relevant to the
concert.
How to go to this show for the
best possible experience?
Well I’m glad you asked that! I
would carpool with friends and
have a designated driver. I would
arrive early, say about 5:30 or 6pm.
I would eat something off one of
the food vendors, just to avoid
lugging a cooler—but that might
be fun, too. I would dress for sun
but have gear for wind and rain
and cooler temps, too, if there was
a chance of bad weather. I would
bring a nice bag chair and have it
out of its bag for inspection at the
gate. Good Friends, Good food,
Good Music! Yeah!
Other considerations: Kids
are welcome, but keep them close
by, as the Colorado River is just
feet away. Sunscreen yes—even
at 6pm.
Alternative modes of arriving:
Bikes, of course, and maybe a boat
trip to the Parks landing. Check
for rules regarding using the park
boat ramp.

Since that glorious New Year’s
Day in January, you may have
noticed the packaging for your
cannabis products has drastically
changed. The old-school days
of see-through ziplock baggies
has been replaced with a process
known as “vacuum seal”—or
those annoying “lock top” safety
medicine bottles. Many dispensaries in Denver use black or silver
bags or jars in many sizes, shapes
and colors. Some even offer recycling of your containers. Also,
there are many more labels attached to each package, which includes the strain and amounts of
what’s inside.
Some dispensaries get really
creative and put the percentage
of THC and how that particular
strain can be used to alleviate
what pain you may have. So, remember Sativa strains are for the
relief of body aches and Indica
strains generally go straight to
your head to relieve the stress of
your crazy day. The purpose for
all this new labeling is a direct
result of legalization and new
regulations. We must keep it out
of the hands of children, which is
extremely important.
Now that anyone 21 and older
can legally purchase marijuana in
Colorado, the way in which the
products are packaged became
a major priority to parents. This
new packaging and proper labeling also includes “edibles,” which
make up 20-40% of overall cannabis sales throughout the state. But
the labeling for edibles has been
controversial in the past. People
want to know exactly how much
THC is in each product sold and
purchased.
For instance, a 1-2 ounce
brownie may say it contains
100mgs to 250 mgs, but clarity
on per serving became an issue.
Edibles come in many forms, such
as chocolate bars or gummy bears
and now even in non-alcoholic
drinks. This
is just what parents and concerned citizens want to know:
How much THC does each edible item contain, down to the
nanogram. The process of providing 100% accurate or equivalent

ELK MOUNTAIN
By Sharlene Woodruff
COLORADO
– Spring always
brings good and
positive things
to the universe,
which
always
makes for a great
summer. In April,
through a landmark ruling, the
Colorado Court of Appeals began overturning marijuana convictions. If successful, more than
10,000 citizens of Colorado currently incarcerated or on probation for marijuana-related charges
will have their sentences nullified
and or be released from Colorado
penal institutions. As defense lawyers and paralegals comb through
thousands of files, a lot rest on just
how the lower courts effectively
will support the most recent ruling. It makes sound economic and
fiscal sense for Colorado when
jailing people for marijuana misdemeanors that are no longer applicable.
The cost to taxpayers in the
Rocky Mountain state to house
inmates is $606,208, plus an additional $584,724 to pay the salaries
of corrections officers and run the
facilities. Now that marijuana is
legal in Colorado, it makes virtu4-7-10
ally no sense toExpires
continue
this decades-old practice. Incarceration
actually costs society even more,
when taxpayers also foot the bills
for the social services needed for
the jailed and their families on
the outside. Known in the industry as “collateral costs,” these can
include many categories of basic services people need, such as
healthcare, welfare and food assistance.
This news puts a huge hole in
the so-called “War on Drugs”
that’s been raging since 1971,
when President Richard Nixon
felt there was too much drug
abuse permeating American society. This exhaustive and failed
war has cost the United States
over $51 billion EACH YEAR
since its implementation.
