In 2012, the Clark County Agribusiness Tour went to Colorado and Cheyenne, Wyo. After landing in Denver and visiting Buffalo Bill’s grave and the Coors brewery, we traveled west to Black Hawk, population 118. We stayed in a 33-story Ameristar Casino Resort. The resort, including the hotel, restaurant and casino, were first-class all the way.

Barr’s comments on the House floor regarding this legislation are greatly appreciated.

Medicare for all? Who pays?

A local physician and letter writer repeatedly espouses Medicare for everybody, always failing to mention how it is to be financed. He also proposes that it would lower the cost of auto, homeowners’ and workman’s compensation insurance and even property taxes. He ignores one time-honored incontrovertible certainty: There is no such thing as a free lunch.
