Rouch came to Pueb lo in 1905. In 1922 he formed a partnership with Mr. Dunaway to form Dunaway Rouch Mortuary. The Colorado Cultural Resource Survey Architectural Inventory Form on the internet states "But progressive-era reforms eventually revolutionized funeral practices. Reformers urged Americans to live cleaner, more sanitary lives, and this meant removing corpses and funerals from private homes. "The Rouchs were in the forefront of the movement for funerals away from private homes. The construction of the funeral home was a risk; the background story on the website states that Rouchplanned the build ing in such a way that it could be converted into apartments should the business not prove successful.

Following World War II sons Favorite and Orville M. joined their father in the funeral business. A Pueblo Starjournal story dated November 4, 1957 spoke of the two brothers who returned to Pueblo after the war. The reporter noted that "Favorite had worked with his father during his high school (Central) years, and he remembers that he was the only boy in high school who had a tuxedo and derby hat.

The Pueblo Chieftain story of that day states that the building cost more than $40,000 to com plete. It featured 12 large rooms devoted to business, four display and store rooms in the basement and eight living rooms on the second floor. 'Ihe story continues, "The plans for the entire building in arrangement, specifications and decorating were drawn by Rouch and his wife. No expense was spared in the construction. How ard Whitlock was in charge of the work, which started September 24, 1928, and was completed about three weeks ago ... The reception rooms are of soft old rose tint, the wood work is of Oregon fir, paint ed Hollywood gray, the tapestries on the wall harmonize with the color scheme.

Her proposed sinister blueprint for reducing population was heinous and demonic. “A marriage license shall in itself give husband and wife only the right to a common household and not the right to parenthood." (Margaret Sanger, "America Needs a Code for Babies," Article 3, 27 Mar 1934.) "No woman shall have the legal right to bear a child, and no man shall have the right to become a father, without a permit for parenthood." (Margaret Sanger, "America Needs a Code for Babies," Article 4, March 27, 1934.) "Permits for parenthood shall be issued upon application by city, county, or state authorities to married couples, providing they are financially able to support the expected child, have the qualifi cations needed for proper rearing of the child, have no transmissible diseases, and, on the woman’s part, no medical indication that maternity is likely to result in death or perma nent injury to health."

brought Roe V Wade to the grave and we rejoice for the millions of babies whose lives will be saved. Yet while the majority of Americans and others around the world cele brate this victory for life, the other side groans, whines and wails, while rabidly protesting and demonstrat ing, outraged that they did not get their way. The temper tantrums and screaming persists, not only from liberal citizens but elected officials who are supposed to display dignity and respect for the offices they hold.

As our constitutional rights are being eroded away, this mes sage from heaven was light in the midst of darkness. The SCOTUS turned the abortion decision back to the states and “We The People” will have a say in such matters. Twenty-two states had laws or constitutional amendments that were already in place which could be quickly enacted to ban abortion when Roe died. The laws include state bans on abortion that were previously in place before the Su preme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe protected abortion rights. Within one hour after the Supreme Court made the announcement, Missouri’s governor declared abortion illegal in that state. Other states followed. I believe even though it's a long shot, it can happen in Colorado. Lift up your hands and praise a mighty God who is able.

“I demand to control my own body.” A mockery to the lack of control that leads to pregnancy. Actually, those women are correct and should have control over their bodies. The control needs to begin by making wise choices about their personal sexual activity. If they would exercise the control they say they demand they would prevent the pregnancy and a baby wouldn’t have to die for a parent’s reckless uncontrolledConsiderlust.the diabolical agenda of Margaret Sanger. How many people of all races who support the organization are aware of the actual intentions and goals of the founder of Planned Parent hood? A web search of quotes by Margaret Sanger, produces shocking demented remarks that are sicken ing. I share a few examples from many quotes.InaDecember 10, 1939, letter to Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, she wrote, "We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population..." In her 1920s book, Women and the New Race, chapter 5 titled, “The Wickedness of Creating Large Families, she says, “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."

It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society, and the gradual sup pression, elimination and eventual extinction, of defective stocks -- those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization."

They could only vote for one or other but it begs the question what happens with the unused ballot? If the voter tried to vote and use both- then both ballots were to be disqualified. Seems simple enough.

If that were the only incident it might be forgivable - understandable perhaps. Mistakes happen. Mistakes are one thing but consistent mishandling of informa tion is another. The Secretary of State will need to determine is this rises to the level of criminal or merely inefficient ability. Voters in precinct 209 have the wrong state house race on their ballot, and perhaps as many as 2,200 voters will not be able to vote in the district they live in. If this has happened in one precinct it is easy to assume that there are many

such problems in other precincts as well but not enough time to police the results.



All this has a cost to the tax payer of course. Reprinting ballots, additional monitoring personnel, the cost adds up. As well, when the Secretary of State, had to appoint a su pervisor to Pueblo County for the upcoming election, the taxpayers of the area must bare the cost.

redistricting took place in 2021 it might be helpful if the general voting public had a map of where the lines are now drawn and what district they fall into. A quick look at the Pueblo County web site shows no such detail nor has it been updated for decades.

Secretary of State appointed a supervisor to oversee and manage the prima ry election for Pueblo County because of a series of misfortunate events. Events that one must wonder how a person, who has been in office for 16 years as a clerk and recorder and has handled countless county and city elections could so blatantly let discrepancies slip

On June 13th a voter in precinct 303465102 brought to the attention of city council the fact that his ballot, and the ballot of his entire building complex, did not have the correct state house district. This voter resides in district 46 but his ballot and the ballots of his neighbors in the complex, all stated the ballots were for district 62. When this individual brought this to the attention of the Pueblo County Elections department he was told that it was because of redistricting that took place in 2021. The election clerk did apologize and stated they would issue new ballots. A news reporter from channel KRDO reported the story and was told by the Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder, Gilbert “BO” Ortiz that it was an isolated incident that occurred at that address only.

And to pile on to the Brazilian woman's joy, just months later, she found herself delivering Marcelo's rag baby! ("It's true, Marcelo got me pregnant. He didn't use a con dom.") Not wanting to have a child out of wedlock, Marcelo and Meirivone were joined in holy mat rimony before 250 guests and spent their honeymoon week in Rio de Janeiro, then returned to await the arrival of Marcelinho -- an event that was livestreamed on May 21.

After years of the media try ing to turn every single event into proof that white people hate African Americans, at last there’s a monstrous crime where even skeptics say, Yeah, this one was totally about a white guy who hates black people.

House Judiciary Committee re port, March 27, 1854

The first settlers felt God had a

plan for this nation. The first gov ernor of Massachusetts, John Win throp, said, “America is ‘A city set on a hill’, which would be a light to the whole world.” Men like William Bradford, John Winthrop, George Washington, who were among the first leaders of this nation, instead of aspiring to greatness, truly wanted nothing more than to serve God’s people. God was able to use them mightily to show the way of building this nation to be “A city set on a hill.” We have seen a global pandemic shut down our economy and threat en our freedoms, and racial tensions divide our nation. May we take time to find the many incredible blessings that have been poured out on this na tion – how much of the grace which continues to cover this country – are a direct result of the obedience and willingness of our forefathers to die to self and to live for others. We are in the times that we can no longer lean on the faith of our forefathers; we must each find our own footing in Jesus Christ.

“This nation was founded by God with a special calling. The people who first came here knew they were being led here by the Lord Jesus Christ, to found a nation where men, women, and children were to live in obedience to Him….

“If you can’t avoid night driving, have at least one passenger stay awake to talk to the driver,” says Nance.Youcan also make car travel safer with the SABRE Safe Escape 3-In-1 Pepper Gel With Seat Belt Cutter and Window Breaker with Snap Clip. The built-in belt cutter helps free yourself in an emergen cy, while the steel window breaker could come in handy if vehicle doors are jammed or electric win dows fail to operate. Another good choice for driving is the 2-in-1 Flashlight With Pepper Spray, SA BRE PepperLight. Ideal for helping navigate auto issues such as chang ing a tire at night, its ultra-bright flashlight shines up to 540 feet, and its strobe flashlight setting can ward off and disorient potential threats. It also contains 25 bursts of pepper spray for protection against multiple threats.


Don’t take chances. Lock the doors at your hotel and secure important belongings in the safe. For extra protection, you can take home security on the road with the SABRE Door Stop Alarm, a portable, wireless alarm that doesn’t require installation and can be heard up to 1,000 feet away, alerting neighbors and helping frighten intruders.

The cinematography in RRR is eye-popping in many scenes. One res cue segment involving a child in danger stands out. So do battle scenes -- even with huge tigers. I also appreciate the crisp, colorful visuals most of the time in place of that dark and hazy look in too many movies lately.

knew all this would be found in a threehour epic adventure like RRR?

My only complaints? Excessive vio lence and not enough dance numbers. I can’t help thinking how great it would be if this fabulous film were re-made as a musical. But, as you probably know, I think that’s true about any motion picture.

Ram Charan and N.T. Rama Rao Jr. deserve praise for their impressive lead performances. They make their characters seem real even in scenes that are pure fantasy. Charan plays the more stoical one (until he gets angry) and Rama Rao Jr. shows more of his character’s emotional side. But they work together like hand and glove. And, wow, can these great guys dance! Plus, it’s easy to see them as super heroes.

At first, she was having a tough time with the mother superior but she lived life with a smile on her face and accepted even the most menial of chores, always keeping that smile on her face. During this time Christ's visions became more frequent so she chose a father confessor. She told him of the visions and what Christ had said to her and at first the priest didn't believe her. She was insistent and never wavered and always kept that bright smile. Eventually her con fessor began to believe her. Christ told her He wanted a painter to paint a picture of Jesus the way she sees Him so as to have it be seen by the rest of humanity.

Have you ever heard of Saint Maria Faustina Kowalska?

Ladies and gents. Christians or not. You all should go to your libraries or to your com puters and see just how close these messages didn't get out to the world. Faustina herself died within a couple years after the diary and painting were given to her confessor. The story is mesmerizing and the accounts of how difficult it was to be smuggled out to the world keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Then a remarkable thing happened. Not so remarkable when you realize that Pueblo, Colorado is the Home of Hero’s and that mantel is bestowed for a reason. Councilwoman Regina Maestri decided to spear-head a com mittee that consisted of the candidates running for office in the primary, and some of the constitutes that brought their concerns to her. They had a round table discussion, took and compared notes, and realized that this needed the attention of the Secretary of State.

There was not one party over the other but all of them, each party, Democrats, Republicans, Independ ents were all concerned with trans parency and election integrity. There was no fighting, no flag waving and grandstanding just people realizing that something was wrong and it needs to be fixed and that the voters and citizens of this county need to trust their vote. This is how Pueblo, Colorado responds to things that matter. They set aside different ide ologies, platforms, and personalities and take on the problem. They all know that winning by deceit is not a victory. We have let this office off the hook too many times. Mr. Ortiz has sullied the office of clerk and recorder with his brand of cavalier complacen cy. Citizens have waited months to get tags for their car or equipment result ing in more tax revenue lost or post poned by that office. Efforts to get answers have been met with out-right hostility and confrontational gestur ing. He has had 16 years to make an impact and set standards and to have this kind of result is indicative of his ability. Enough already. The citizens and candidates hurt by his actions decided to take a stand. It was not about party. So a Democrat, Republi can and an independent struck a blow for election integrity and the citizens should know that the Home of Hero’s is exactly that. Home to all hero’s no matter the brand.

(Linda's spirit would eventually deeply touch my mother.) Born with hydrocephalus (water on the brain) baby Linda suffered with spina bifida, also her legs were paralyzed. According to hospital staff, her life expectancy was allegedly only for a few more hours. Linda was given last rights upon her birth. Linda's head en larged to gigantic proportions, therefore doctors, nurses and family prepared for her early demise. Strangely, earlier in the day her dad witnessed a glowing golden light and sounds of rushing water in his home. Immediately he knew Linda would survive for several more years. He rushed into the ward, where stunned staff stood astounded at her bedside. She apparently now was fine. Linda returned home. Now seventeen months old and after multiple surgeries Linda began her preordained albeit short life. Astonish ingly this tiny youngster could 'see' pain, and indicate its location, thus avoiding extracurricular operations on countless people: a lifesaver saver for many. Linda was a true legend. Stay focused on this story, and I shall return next month with Linda's short five-year biography…a story of faith for today and always…

WAUSAU, Wis. — The reminder, every time they drive down the street, of how high gaso line prices are. The delays in home construction and renovation because of supply-chain disrup tions. The hike in the cost of a summertime respite at the lake. The ripple effects of a 5.4 per cent increase in the price of dairy items on a state whose economy depends in large measure on that sector of the economy. To say nothing of the cost of

So rising gas prices mean folks here are driving on cruise control at 50 mph to save a few cents on gas dur ing the morning commute. “Looking for a steak for your summer barbe cue?” Whelan asks. “Hold on to your wallet.”

The public-opinion specialists Seymour Martin Lipset and William Schneider learned this while exam ining how inflation, which in 1960 was at a mere 1.4 percent, jumped to 13.3 percent in a two-decade period. The effect of that rise was staggering. “A high rate of inflation,” they wrote, “appears to lower the public expecta tions of the future in all respects: for their own lives, for the country as a whole, or the economy.”

things are tough for the Democrats right now? That’s noth ing. Wait till Tuesday. Then things will really get bad. Think of it as the Republicans’ silent frontporch campaign, their most effective in decades.

Fuel oil up 10.7 percent year to year. Gasoline up 48.7 percent. Grocer ies up 11.9 percent. Housing up 5.5 percent. Retail sales were down in May for the first time this year. In all, inflation is up 8.6 percent nationally year over year. In the Midwest region that includes Wisconsin, the figure is 8 percent, with prices in the energy sector here growing by 13.2 percent in May alone.

Of all the crises battering the Democrats, inflation may be the most dangerous. The Republicans won’t have to reach far for their evidence. It’s in a Bureau of Labor Statistics report, and it makes for sobering reading:

president knows gasoline prices and inflation are dangerous for an incumbent president. He went to Washington, D.C., in 1973, during the early energy crisis. In his first decade on Capitol Hill, he watched inflation soar and saw Gerald R. Ford struggle with it. He witnessed how it led to the presidency of Jimmy Carter, which in turn also fell victim to inflation and to a presiden tial candidate, former Gov. Ronald Reagan, who knew the answer when he asked the famous question in his 1980 debate with Carter: “Are you better off today than you were four

yearsThatago?”isaquestion Biden will face if he seeks reelection. All the indicators signal trouble for the Democrats on the economy. Nearly three-fifths of Americans now think that rising prices are a crisis, not just a problem. That’s up from 49 percent in a late April 2022 Quinnipiac Poll. A University of Michigan consumer sentiment study reached its lowest level since it began surveying in 1952, with four-fifths of Americans expressing pessimism about the economy. A study by Civic Science found that more than 9 of 10 American adults are at least somewhat concerned about inflation — and that nearly two-thirds are saying they are “very concerned.” Two-fifths believe the Biden administration is the biggest cause of this distress.
