    Fairacres Manor residents protest state COVID-19 rules against physical contact “We want to see our families. We miss the hugs,” one resident said By ANNE DELANEYOctober 8, 2020 A group of residents at a Greeley skilled long-term care and memory-support facility are tired of COVID-19 social distancing regulations, and they held a protest to register their displeasure. “Enough is enough. Set us free,” Fairacres Manor resident Josie Sanchez said through a microphone Thursday afternoon while parked in her wheelchair on 16th Street across from North Colorado Medical Center in Greeley. Sanchez, 76 years old, was one of organizers of the...

    DDA staffer on leave after Facebook comments about Trump rally attendees By JADYN WATSON-FISHER Greeley Tribune June 19, 2020 The Greeley Downtown Development Authority placed a staff member on administrative leave after expressing ill will toward attendees of President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. According to an NPR report shared on Facebook, a judge denied a request to require physical distancing at the rally. Greeley DDA Director of Downtown Experience Alison Hamling commented negatively on that post. “Good. They can give (COVID-19) to each other,” Hamling, who contracted the virus earlier this year, said in the now-deleted thread....

    Our city council took it upon themselves to approve an $8 Million Dollar "Loan" to a shadow LLC group building a hotel/conference center in the downtown area of Greeley, but never disclosed the loan to the public till after groundbreaking. A new citizen group is petitioning to get this on the ballot for voters to approve or disapprove, as should have been done in the first place. Help them out by freeping the poll on the Tribune phone page, it's about halfway down the page. Thanks.

    School officials in northern Colorado are asking parents to take care with their newly legal recreational marijuana, after fourth graders were caught dealing the drug on an elementary school campus. John Gates, director of safety for Weld County School District 6, said Wednesday that the students involved, three 10-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Greeley’s Monfort Elementary School, faced tough discipline but not suspension or expulsion. He would not elaborate on their punishment. […] The marijuana appears to have been legally purchased by adults—grandparents in two families—and no charges were expected to be filed, Gates said. He said the...

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 17, 2014 | Matt K. Lewis
    Ken Buck, the presumed front-runner for the GOP Senate nomination in Colorado, is fighting back against the “war on women” narrative that helped doom his Senate campaign in 2010. And the opening salvo in the battle to reclaim his name is coming in the form of a two-minute video entitled, Stephanie’s Story. The story goes like this: In 2008, Stephanie Drobny and her two young children fled their home in Montana after her abusive husband threatened to murder her and put her in the forest “where the bears would eat” her. But Ken Buck, in his capacity as the Weld...

    American Heritage Magazine ^ | April 1957 | William Harlan Hale
    On Saturday morning, October 25, 1851, Horace Greeley’s New York Tribune , entrenched after a decade of existence as America’s leading Whig daily, appeared with twelve pages rather than its usual eight. The occasion was too noteworthy to be passed over without comment by the paper itself. So a special editorial was written—probably by Greeley’s young managing editor, the brisk, golden-whiskered Charles A. Dana—to point it out. Besides a “press of advertisements.” the editorial ran, this morning’s enlarged paper contained “articles from some foreign contributors that are especially worthy of attention.” Among these were “a letter from Madame Belgioioso, upon...

    Chicago Sun-Times ^ | November 8, 2008 | Shamus Toomey
    The Rev. Andrew Greeley, the best-selling novelist and Chicago Sun-Times columnist, fractured his skull in a freak fall in Rosemont Friday and is listed in critical condition at a suburban hospital, his family and friends said this afternoon. The outspoken priest had just lectured before a religious conference in Rosemont, and had taken a taxi to the nearby River Road Blue Line L stop. As Greeley, 80, exited the taxi, his jacket snagged in the door and he fell down and hit his head around 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to Rosemont police and friends. “Right now he’s critical but stable,...

    Abdiamar Bare, 21, walks up to the nondescript mosque in Greeley for noon prayers and pauses a moment to talk about his faith. He is asked by a visitor if he's seen the DVD "Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West." No, he says. He's asked if the principles of Islam allow other religions to coexist with it. "Every religion is the same. No religion is better than another religion," Bare says. "I believe in Islam. I like my religion, and I don't want it to interfere with other religions." Bare is one of about 120 Muslim workers recently fired...

    Let's fill some trucks with books, drive them downtown and burn them in front of the Chicago Public Library. Let's drive other trucks to the regional libraries and burn them, too . . . I mean the books, not the libraries, though libraries are the source of the problem. If it weren't for the libraries, it would be hard for innocent young people to be corrupted by the filth pouring out of the country's printers. Instead of burning books or libraries, perhaps we ought to start smashing printing presses. They have served as tools of sin and the devil since...

    More than 100 Muslim workers were fired from a Greeley slaughterhouse Wednesday after refusing to report for work a day earlier in protest of the company's refusal to allow a prayer break during the work shift. ... "This action is a direct violation of our collective-bargaining agreement," Swift said of the walkout in a statement. "Employees were told . . . failure to report to work when recalled would result in their immediate termination." ... "There were no negotiations (Wednesday), nothing," said Ahmed Mohamud, a spokesman for the workers and one of those fired Wednesday. "I honestly thought we'd work...

    Andrew Greeley's column in today's Chicago Sun-Times is "American warmongers excel at talking a good game." Greeley's writings are often unintentionally amusing, filled with the sort of kneejerk liberalism we'd expect from a Barack Obama contributor. This morning's article is typically hilarious: If we chant "USA!" Often enough, sing God "Bless American!" fervently enough, wear flag pins, fly the flag in front of our house and croak the national anthem loudly enough, we will win victory and honor our dead heroes. Who are those who reject compromise of a useless and criminally deadly war like Iraq? They are the blusterers,...

    Blaring at readers from newspapers across the nation was continuing evidence of the press' obsession for benchmarks of servicemen who've sacrificed their lives in Iraq, as if the 3,999th soldier to die -- or for that matter, the first -- merited no mention. This issue isn't about freedom of the press. It's about journalistic ethics. The media circle like vultures waiting for the next lapse in government accountability, but demands virtually unlimited freedom to use anonymous sources. Who polices the "policemen of democracy?" Why, they do, of course, creating their own rules of conduct (such as "Deliberate distortion is never...
