By Joel Dyer

Don’t trade pennies for your planet

Why we must municipalize our electric utility

By Joel Dyer
is an old political joke in my business in which a reporter who doesn’t much care for a particular candidate shouts out at a press conference, “Do you still beat your wife?” The candidate, who of course has never done such a despicable thing, quickly responds that the whole thing is a vicious lie.

By Joel Dyer
Colorado’s Republi … Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper was in Boulder a few days back speaking at the FrackingSENSE lecture series that the University of Colorado puts on.

By Joel Dyer
As we recently reported, a last-minute rider was slipped into HR 933, the 240-page spending bill signed by President Barack Obama on March 26.

Hickenlooper’s drinking problem
