  3. Tens of thousands of Coloradans who could be eligible for free or reduced-cost health insurance instead pay a fine every year for not having insurance at all, according to a recent report from a nonpartisan health group.The issue, for many, is the price of insurance.

  8. Rape and sexual abuse are serious matters. And while they can occur from a woman to a man, generally, it is the woman who is the victim, because it is often the man who is in power and physically stronger. The majority of recent accusations have been from women. True abuse must be taken seriously; we must also realize that there is a difference between inappropriate behavior and abusive actions. Sexual misconduct covers a wide spectrum, and accusations of abuse are the type that even if proven innocent, the accused is tainted for life; thus claims must be carefully considered.If …
