One of my pet beefs with the MSM is that, (despite the fact they easily could), they seem to have a habit of not including pertinent information helpful to the public.
The ACLU also filed a motion for a TRO and preliminary injunction in Colorado Springs for the same thing. The collection of plaintiffs in the Colorado Springs case appears to be very similar to the collection of plaintiffs in the Grand Junction case. Interested persons can read it for themselves at
I will post the URL for the Grand Junction petition for TRO when I find it.
One of the reasons I cranked up a new online website at is to give the public a chance to have access to more detailed public information so interested members of the public can see whether or not their judges are doing a good job and deserve to be retained.
Having been a recipient of some adverse MSM spin during the Glade Park access controversy, for me, at least, it is far more interesting to read the actual court papers, including the court decisions, statutes and regulations cited in those papers, instead of merely what some MSM reporter says about them while telling the story.
Especially in the modern age of technology it would be quite easy for the MSM to include links to such pertinent documents in the online versions of their newspapers. Question is: why don’t they? “Enquiring” minds want to know!

Homeless and people needing gas money and such to get to work I’m fine with, but the transients who do it step out in the road, drunk and stoned, those are the ones I have a problem with…. Just remember people every time an ambulance is dispatched to take care of a drunk transient, it is costing us money, not them!!! We pay for that!!! Remember that the next time you hand them money. I see it all the time they get money and head right over to the liquor store and lay under the bush at 1st and North and get drunk!!!
