The Shot Heard ‘Round the World’

Grand GOP solemnly remembers this day as the Battles of Lexington and Concord were fought between a heavily armed British military unit intent on destroying 3 cannon in a militia depot, and independent-minded colonial working-class citizens who refused to comply in turning over heavy weaponry to them. This was in effect the first open battle of the American Revolution, the “shot heard round the world”, and a culmination of events that led to inclusion of the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights many years later at the Constitutional Convention.

Many thanks to Grand County and Colorado voters who recognized the tax wolf in sheep’s clothing and soundly defeated Proposition HH !!!  Our state legislature must learn how to live within a budget–just like each one of us has to do.  In 2024 Please remember how Governor Polis and the Democratic controlled Legislature tried to use misleading narratives and confusing complexity to trick you.  All TABOR requires is to clearly explain what additional tax revenues are needed for and then ask the voters for their support–a very simple process!

6/15/23 It was just announced in the Judicial Watch Verdict  magazine, June 2023 issue, that the State of Colorado has agreed to settle a Judicial Watch lawsuit from October 2020 on behalf of itself and three Colorado residents, which alleged that the state had failed to clean and update its voter rolls, as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993. The lawsuit alleged that high registration rates and other voter roll metrics showed “an ongoing, systemic problem with Colorado’s voter list maintenance efforts.”

5/26/23  On Friday 5/22 the Colorado Speaker of the House, Julie McCluskie, and State Senator, Dylan Roberts, visited Grand county and participated in several events in Granby.  They participated in a town hall at the Granby Library and summarized the Colorado State Legislature’s accomplishments during the 2023 legislative session. McCluskie sponsored 15 bills which focused on affordable housing, public safety, education, the workforce, environment and healthcare.  Roberts sponsored 44 bills, 11 of which have already been signed into law, focused on agriculture, education, water management, wolf reintroduction, affordable housing and economic growth. They also received a tour of the Warner Field Aviation Museum, attended the Grand county State of the River, and were briefed on current water issues.

4/06/23  On Thursday 4/06 U.S. 2nd District Congressional Representative Joe Neguse visited Grand County, stopping in Kremmling, Granby, Fraser, and Winter Park to meet with Town Managers, as well as Grand County Housing Authority Staff and Grand Fire Protection District personnel. Attendees at the meetings spoke about projects in their respective towns related to affordable housing, economic development, transportation, highway repairs, and fire protection and mitigation issues. Several federal and state funding grants are in work or have been approved. One example is a funding grant  applied for by Grand County EMS for updated equipment and vehicles. Another example is the application of State and Federal funds to support CDOT repair work on the Hwy 40 Red Dirt Hill section between Granby and Tabernash. This entire news article can be read on the Sky-Hi News headlines from the Friday 4/07 Newspaper.

3/06/23  At our GCRCC Monday night meeting, Mr. Rich Cimino, our Grand County District 1 County Commissioner, briefed the attendees on the status of 4 new bills before the State Legislature, adding new restrictions on gun ownership in the State of Colorado. These 4 bills are shown below and they are currently in process within the State Legislature. If citizens have concern about these bills or their status, there are links provided in Other News to read the full content of each bill, and then an additional link to contact your senate or house representatives to voice concerns.

SB23-168 [1] – Allowing gun manufacturers and stores to be sued.

11/29/22   Last month residents of Parshall were notified that the Parshall Post Office would be closing effective 11/29, because the lease on the existing P.O. building was being terminated and no suitable new building was available. After 11/29 mail will be picked up and delivered to cluster box units located off U.S. Hwy 40.  Residents who receive delivery at their homes along local rural routes won’t be affected.  Kremmling Post Office will provide postal in-person services and will also provide P.O. Box rental services.

11/15/22   The election results have now been posted for all federal, state, and county election positions, including state amendments, propositions, judges, and local ballot issues.

10/14/22    The President of the United States visited Colorado on Wednesday 10/12 to formally designate Camp Hale in Eagle County as the newest American National Monument, with the official  title “Camp Hale–Continental Divide National Monument.” This had been the training site for the former 10th Mountain Division, which had been active as ski warriors in the European theater during World War II, and they had conducted mountain snow/ski training in the surrounding Tenmile Mountain range within the White River National Forest.  The President designated 53,804 acres of rugged mountain landscape to be preserved within the monument boundaries for current and future use for outdoor recreational activities and to capture and preserve the natural mountain beauty of Colorado.    SHN 10/14, pg. 16

9/28/22    Fraser Town Manager Ed Cannon on 9/21 during a town board meeting announced his retirement set for 3/31/2023. He cited health issues in his family as the reason for his early retirement.

9/14/22        2nd Congressional District Rep. Joe Neguse announced that the US House of Representatives recently passed legislation to ensure fire impacted communities will have resources needed to recover from devastation caused by wildfires. This bipartisan Wildfire Recovery Act would increase flexibility in the federal cost share for Fire Management Assistance Grants (FMAG) to bring in additional resources for communities as they rebuild from wildfire damage. FMAG grants are authorized by FEMA to reimburse the costs of fighting a fire. The grants allow the state to submit receipts for reimbursement of 75% of eligible costs to fight the fires.   SHN 9/16/2022, page 5.
