    A prominent gun control advocate is calling for the resignation of the Oregon sheriff leading the investigation into the recent shooting who he labeled a pro-gun “conspiracy theorist.” Douglas County sheriff John Hanlin ruffled feathers with gun control groups after it came to light that he sent Vice President Joe Biden a letter in January 2013 threatening not to enforce stronger gun laws. According to reports, Hanlin also posted a conspiracy video on his Facebook page suggesting the government was behind the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting as well as the 9/11 terrorist attacks in a coordinated effort to “disarm...

    In six weeks there will be a little-followed election that could help determine the path for education reform in the United States for a long time to come. At issue is whether a local school board has the authority to tell the government employee union—you know, the forces of darkness that are preventing commonsense education reform in our schools? -- to take a hike. In July 2012, that’s exactly what Douglas County, Colorado school board decided. After months of negotiations the school board reached an impasse with the union as their contract expired. Previously the union has demanded that the...

    The wife had jury duty at the Douglas County courthouse in Castle Rock, Colorado yesterday. She found they, too, now have the backscatter nude imaging machines, and they are mandatory. So, to excercise our constitutional rights to the courts or to appear as mandated by the court we must submit to a strip search and radiation. According to the TSA web site, these machines are also in other courthouses throughout the country. Just thought you should know.

    Douglas County, Colorado has three streams running from South to North. The Cherry Creek, East Plum Creek and West Plum Creek all eventually flow into the Platte River and the water then makes its way down the Mississippi to the Gulf of Mexico. Many of Colorado’s first settlers made their homesteads on these three rivers. The West Plum Creek ends at Sedalia, Colorado, founded in 1865. This land along the West Plum Creek is Horse Country as it has been for over 140 years. On Saturday September 19th, the Douglas County Republicans held their annual picnic. They chose the Wiens...
