Just when we thought we couldn’t hear any more bad news about Adams County, news breaks about questionable business dealings and nepotism run rampant at the hands of one county commissioner.  Alice Nichol, part of the power hungry and deeply entrenched Democrats in the county, now joins the ranks of county politicos with a pall […]

postheadericon Lefty Hickenlooper to become governor; Some other state races still up in the air
