Here's where our future governor, whomever he or she may be, plans to guide the state on that topic. Note: Candidates are listed in the order they appear on sample ballots posted by the Larimer County Clerk and Recorder at VoteLarimer.org; Republicans are listed first because there are more registered Republicans than Democrats in Larimer County (though unaffiliated voters top both).

PARENTING 06/21/2018 11:09 am ET The "Guardians Of The Galaxy" actress is actively fighting strict gender roles for her three sons. By Alanna Vagianos Zoe Saldana is not here to perpetuate gender roles, especially when it comes to her kids. “When you look at parenting, the whole thing about matriarchy and patriarchy, and Daddy’s little girl and Mama’s boys ― my husband and I find that completely ludicrous and absolutely unhealthy for the upbringing of a child,” Saldana told People magazine.

A Tallahassee judge has affirmed the overwhelming intent of Florida voters by ruling that state lawmakers have failed to comply with a constitutional amendment that is supposed to provide a specific pot of money to buy and preserve endangered lands. The 2014 amendment has been subverted by legislators who use the money as a slush fund to pay for other priorities — denying the will of the people and robbing Florida’s most sensitive natural resources of a tool for preservation. The issue likely will be ultimately decided by the Florida Supreme Court, but the judge’s ruling sends the right message.Leon County Circuit Judge Charles Dodson sided with the environmental community in a lawsuit over whether lawmakers have complied with the Florida Water and Land Conservation ballot amendment as they use some of the money for staffing and other expenses.
