    Our city council took it upon themselves to approve an $8 Million Dollar "Loan" to a shadow LLC group building a hotel/conference center in the downtown area of Greeley, but never disclosed the loan to the public till after groundbreaking. A new citizen group is petitioning to get this on the ballot for voters to approve or disapprove, as should have been done in the first place. Help them out by freeping the poll on the Tribune phone page, it's about halfway down the page. Thanks.

    School officials in northern Colorado are asking parents to take care with their newly legal recreational marijuana, after fourth graders were caught dealing the drug on an elementary school campus. John Gates, director of safety for Weld County School District 6, said Wednesday that the students involved, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Greeleys Monfort Elementary School, faced tough discipline but not suspension or expulsion. He would not elaborate on their punishment. [] The marijuana appears to have been legally purchased by adultsgrandparents in two familiesand no charges were expected to be filed, Gates said.

    Ken Buck, the presumed front-runner for the GOP Senate nomination in Colorado, is fighting back against the war on women narrative that helped doom his Senate campaign in 2010. And the opening salvo in the battle to reclaim his name is coming in the form of a two-minute video entitled, Stephanies Story. The story goes like this: In 2008, Stephanie Drobny and her two young children fled their home in Montana after her abusive husband threatened to murder her and put her in the forest where the bears would eat her. But Ken Buck, in his capacity as the Weld...

    On Saturday morning, October 25, 1851, Horace Greeleys New York Tribune , entrenched after a decade of existence as Americas leading Whig daily, appeared with twelve pages rather than its usual eight. The occasion was too noteworthy to be passed over without comment by the paper itself. So a special editorial was writtenprobably by Greeleys young managing editor, the brisk, golden-whiskered Charles A. Danato point it out. Besides a press of advertisements. the editorial ran, this mornings enlarged paper contained articles from some foreign contributors that are especially worthy of attention. Among these were a letter from Madame Belgioioso, upon...

    The Rev. Andrew Greeley, the best-selling novelist and Chicago Sun-Times columnist, fractured his skull in a freak fall in Rosemont Friday and is listed in critical condition at a suburban hospital, his family and friends said this afternoon. The outspoken priest had just lectured before a religious conference in Rosemont, and had taken a taxi to the nearby River Road Blue Line L stop. As Greeley, 80, exited the taxi, his jacket snagged in the door and he fell down and hit his head around 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to Rosemont police and friends. Right now hes critical but stable,...

    Abdiamar Bare, 21, walks up to the nondescript mosque in Greeley for noon prayers and pauses a moment to talk about his faith. He is asked by a visitor if he's seen the DVD "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West." No, he says. He's asked if the principles of Islam allow other religions to coexist with it. "Every religion is the same. No religion is better than another religion," Bare says. "I believe in Islam. I like my religion, and I don't want it to interfere with other religions." Bare is one of about 120 Muslim workers recently fired...

    Let's fill some trucks with books, drive them downtown and burn them in front of the Chicago Public Library. Let's drive other trucks to the regional libraries and burn them, too . . . I mean the books, not the libraries, though libraries are the source of the problem. If it weren't for the libraries, it would be hard for innocent young people to be corrupted by the filth pouring out of the country's printers. Instead of burning books or libraries, perhaps we ought to start smashing printing presses. They have served as tools of sin and the devil since...

    More than 100 Muslim workers were fired from a Greeley slaughterhouse Wednesday after refusing to report for work a day earlier in protest of the company's refusal to allow a prayer break during the work shift. ... "This action is a direct violation of our collective-bargaining agreement," Swift said of the walkout in a statement. "Employees were told . . . failure to report to work when recalled would result in their immediate termination." ...

    Andrew Greeley's column in today's Chicago Sun-Times is "American warmongers excel at talking a good game." Greeley's writings are often unintentionally amusing, filled with the sort of kneejerk liberalism we'd expect from a Barack Obama contributor. This morning's article is typically hilarious: If we chant "USA!" Often enough, sing God "Bless American!" fervently enough, wear flag pins, fly the flag in front of our house and croak the national anthem loudly enough, we will win victory and honor our dead heroes. Who are those who reject compromise of a useless and criminally deadly war like Iraq? They are the blusterers,...

    Blaring at readers from newspapers across the nation was continuing evidence of the press' obsession for benchmarks of servicemen who've sacrificed their lives in Iraq, as if the 3,999th soldier to die -- or for that matter, the first -- merited no mention. This issue isn't about freedom of the press. It's about journalistic ethics. The media circle like vultures waiting for the next lapse in government accountability, but demands virtually unlimited freedom to use anonymous sources. Who polices the "policemen of democracy?" Why, they do, of course, creating their own rules of conduct (such as "Deliberate distortion is never...
