Nearly 3,000 Americans died in the Sept. 11 attacks. The opioid overdose emergency now kills the same number of Americans every three weeks. The overdose death toll has grown 532 percent since 2002, overtaking car crashes as a leading cause of death; last year, 528 Coloradans died due to opioid overdose in another record year for drug deaths.

Chase Kohne 08/03/2017 Colorado Politics

The late U.S. Sen. Paul Wellstone of Minnesota famously said that “we all do better when we all do better.” Parker does better when Trinidad does better; children who live on the eastern plains do better when they have the same opportunities as children in Castle Rock, and the people who vote for Republicans do better when the people who vote for Democrats do better. If Buck can’t understand that, it’s time to replace him with someone who does.

Ernest Luning 07/26/2017 Colorado Politics

“It takes courage to sign up and serve knowing you are likely to deploy in today’s military,” Kohne said in a statement. “As an Army officer, I judge my soldiers solely on their capability to do their job and their desire to serve their country.

Members of  Colorado’s congressional delegation from both parties took issue with President Trump’s tweets Wednesday morning announcing a ban on transgender military service “in any capacity,” although U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn, a Colorado Springs Republican, said he supported the new policy.
