    Happy Birthday wishes to once-Speaker of the Colorado House, Lola Spradley (R-Beulah).  Lola co-chaired the 2004 Amendment 37 campaign with Congressman Mark Udall (D-Boulder), setting the stage for the abundance of affordable and unlimited power Colorado ratepayers enjoy via wind from the eastern plains and solar resources in the Pueblo and San Luis Valley regions.

    Colorado’s success with Amendment 37 was the impetus for the formation of the national renewable energy initiative, “25’x’25”.  This state continues to have an impact on where we are today as a nation in regards to renewable energy.

    Dave just had to get in first with something silly. Today is the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.https://www.history.com/news/stonewall-riots-timeline And what better day for the Supreme Court to turn away an appeal from a Virginia school district of the Fourth Circuit’s decision in favor of a trans kid who sued to be treated like the boy he was.https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/supreme-court-wont-revive-schools-transgender-bathroom-ban/2021/06/28/dc63ed40-d817-11eb-8c87-ad6f27918c78_story.html

      Good for SCOTUS. I was surprised that Amy Comey Barrett, Kavanaugh, and Gorsuch joined the court liberals in denying the Virginia appeal. It signals that they may not be as anti- LGBTQ as was feared. 
       

      In case anyone cares what Dr. Chaps thinks about LGBTQ issues, he was busy warning that an Air Force drag show “ insults God” and would “hurt our ability to fight and win wars.” Huh?

    Follow-on impacts of LAST YEAR'S fires — mud slides closing I-70 in Glenwood Canyon on Saturday and Sunday.  It won't take too many of those to percolate into travelers' awareness, with consequent impact on their travel plans, which will hit businesses hoping for a summer boost of activity.
