Richard Randall Show, KVOR-AM 740 (593-2700,

Thanks to the readers of the Colorado Springs Independent for giving me this honor. Richard

Though he's hosted a talk radio show for more than 10 years, and reported TV news before that, you might not know that Richard Randall is a history buff. Off air, in fact, he's a documentary filmmaker who's chronicled the story of Mississippi Delta gospel music in Soul of the Delta, and now is working on a film about recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor. "There are so many stories that haven't been told," he says. His radio show, a repeat Best Of winner, tends to focus more on politics with a conservative bent, but Randall says he always welcomes callers with diverging viewpoints. "That's the beauty of talk radio." — AL

Brian Birdwell

Thanks to First Command Financial Services for bringing Lt. Col. Brian Birdwell to the Springs. Birdwell is a survivor of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. After American Airlines Flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon, just yards away from his second floor office, Brian was thrown to the ground and engulfed in flames. Of the burns that consumed 60 percent of his body, nearly half were third-degree burns. After having undergone more than 30 operations and months of multiple skin grafts, burn treatments, and therapy sessions, Birdwell has made a remarkable recovery. Despite some physical limitations, he testifies not only to his physical healing, but also to his spiritual healing—the ultimate miracle of grace.

Lt. Col. Brian D. Birdwell is a native of Fort Worth, Texas, and a 1984 graduate of Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. Graduating as the Distinguished Military Graduate through the Army ROTC, he began his service in the United States Army at Ft. Sill, Oklahoma. After subsequently serving in South Korea for 18 months, Brian returned to the states and met his future wife, Mel. In 1990, they traveled to their new station in Kitzingen, Germany. While in Germany, Birdwell was deployed for Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm and earned the Bronze Star for his action in the Gulf War. In 1996, while assigned to duty at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, he completed his master's degree at the University of Missouri. In 1998, while stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington, he was deployed to Central America to help lead the Joint Task Force in support of relief operations in the aftermath of Hurricane Mitch. At the time of the attack, Brian was serving on the Department of the Army staff at the Pentagon as the Executive Officer to the Deputy Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management. He was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received on September 11, 2001. He continued to serve in the office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management and retired from active service on July 1, 2004.

Contact: Nicholas Gray – President/CEO, NG Enterprises LLC
Phone: 719-433-7755
Location: Plaza of the Rockies, South Tower
121 South Tejon Street, Suite 1107, Colorado Springs, CO 80903

Colorado Springs, CO (July 13, 2009) — NG Enterprises, founded by Nicholas Gray, a former sergeant in the Army who served in Iraq, is pleased to present our four divisions of services to assist veterans and non-veterans alike in the Pikes Peak region.

The four divisions include Veterans, Finance, Lending and Franchise Brokerage Divisions are:

Veterans Division
Veterans 2 Business is an organization that was founded by Nicholas A. Gray, President & CEO of NG Enterprises, LLC. Veterans 2 Business has working relationships with over 300 franchises in more than 30 industries that are part of the VET-FRAN program which honor veterans with significant discounts into franchise ownership.

Finance Division
Assisting fiscally responsible individuals into financial freedom by providing a variety of services to business and home owners in order to become either business-debt, or mortgage-free in half to one third of the time by utilizing revolutionary software that acts as a web-based cash flow management system without changing ones budget.

Lending Division
Providing a myriad of funding solutions for any entrepreneur with the drive and desire for business success. We’re able to assist with rolling over a 401k, IRA, or any other retirement account into a business venture while avoiding paying penalties & taxes. Traditional & non-traditional funding also available.

Franchise Brokerage Division
A division that has representation of over 300 franchises, in more than 30 industries, which assists in finding the right business/franchise for people based on their skills, goals, investment range, and geographic location. We do this at no cost to you, as we are paid by a particular Franchisor only if and when you sign a Franchise Agreement with them.
Nicholas Gray said, “When I left the military in November of 07’ after having served in the Army in Iraq and Korea, I was troubled with the little help that was offered to the exiting military members into entrepreneurship. Everything was about getting a job. I knew I couldn’t be the only one seeking self employment. I began to seek others who could provide me with assistance in starting my own company. I felt that Colorado Springs would allow me to accomplish my goals, while being able to live in a community that would support those same goals. I have a growing business that is helping veterans and non-veterans into business ownership. “
In March of 2008 the company NG Enterprises, LLC was formed with the intent to help facilitate entrepreneurship to the average American while giving them the greatest chance of success. In the process of researching entrepreneurship, it was found that franchising had a far better success rate when compared to the traditional startup. The US Chamber of Commerce found that 97% of all franchises were still open for business after five years, while 87% being under the same ownership.
In September of 2008 the Finance division was rolled out to assist fiscally responsible individuals into financial freedom. Paying off your mortgage, business loans, & debts suddenly became a reality for many.
In November of 2008 the Lending Division was launched to assist our clients’ monetary needs. Traditional & Non-traditional funding along with 401K & IRA rollovers were the vehicles used to make this possible.
In January of 2009, the Veterans Division was added to the company with its sole purpose being to help veterans into business ownership at discounted pricing via franchising. In addition to the Veterans Division a Finance Division was launched to help with the funding process.

About us:
Teen Court is a unique and highly successful approach to juvenile crime. In Colorado Springs, the program provides an alternative to the regular Municipal Court sentencing for first-time misdemeanor offenses committed by young people between 11 and 18 years of age. In Teen Court, peers tell the defendant that his or her crime is “not OK,” and give the defendant a sentence that, hopefully, will make him or her stop and think when the next temptation to commit an offense occurs. The result is that only 14% of the teens who are sentenced through Teen Court break the law a second time.

Referrals to Teen Court
Referrals are made to Teen Court by the City Attorney’s office and Municipal Court judges. Not every case is eligible for Teen Court. We do not accept any cases involving gangs or weapons and other limitations may be imposed from time to time.

Specifics of the Colorado Springs Teen Court program
* Teen Court is a voluntary program
* Defendants must plead guilty in order to participate
* A parents or guardian must be present at all stages of the program
* Juveniles are sentenced by a jury or panel of teenagers
* By completing the Teen Court sentence and staying out of trouble, juveniles walk away with a dismissal

Teen Court sessions:
In Teen Court, an appropriate sentence is decided by the defendant’s peers. Sessions are normally held on Tuesdays between 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. In Colorado Springs, the program provides two procedures to determine a defendant’s sentence in Teen Court and both are conducted by trained high school volunteers:

Teen Court Trial is usually used to sentence older defendants who have committed more serious crimes. This is a formal, rather dramatic, sentencing hearing in which an adult judge presides. High school students (with an adult attorney present as a mentor) take the roles of defense and prosecution attorneys. A jury of the defendant’s peers determines the sentence within Teen Court guidelines.

Peer Panel:

Teen Court Peer Panel is for defendants, often younger ones, who have committed minor offenses. This procedure includes a less formal courtroom setting where the panel of student volunteers questions the defendant and then has a similar but separate dialogue with the parent or guardian. The student volunteers on the Peer Panel determine the sentence using Teen Court guidelines.

Philosophy of Restorative Justice:
Sentencing in Teen Court is based on the philosophy of Restorative Justice.

The three goals of Restorative Justice are:

* Accountability
* Competency development
* Community safety

Sentencing options:
All sentences include community service and jury duty in a subsequent Teen Court trial. Many sentences include apology letters, essays and classes or workshops designed to help defendants develop good decision making skills, improve their ability to work through conflicts or anger, realize the necessity of education to achieve an acceptable lifestyle as an adult, improve their feeling of self worth, etc. Each sentence is based on the individual’s needs and circumstances. When a defendant completes the sentence, the charges are dismissed. The defendant walks away with new skills, better respect for the law, and a clean record.



For most people reading the United States Constitution is difficult, and no wonder! It was written in “legalese,” and most of it is more than 200 years old.

But now The Constitution Made Easy not only offers a modernized version for easier reading; it actually makes the meaning of the original seem to jump off the page!

The Constitution has been called the greatest governing document ever written by man. Understanding it is worth the effort, and now easier than ever before. Enjoy!

Since the 1993 attack on the World Trade Center complex in New York and the second attack on the WTC, the Pentagon, and a number of airplanes being hijacked or exploding in mid-air on 9/11/2001, the need for increased Homeland Security and a stronger counter terrorism effort needs to be put in place.

Reporter Wes Rodgers' ongoing documentaries covering the Homeland Security effort follow and depict the terrorist trails very well through intense investigation. Please check the Patriots 911 link giving a brief background on this upcoming series that introduces a unique way to track terrorism, predict where other terrorist attacks may come from, and possibly predict when an attack may happen.

Not Evil Just Wrong is the film Al Gore and Hollywood don't want you to see. It reveals the true human cost of Global Warming hysteria.

Tickets are FREE but required.

Pick up at the Pikes Peak Center Box Office
190 South Cascade Ave

Box office is open Monday – Friday: 10am – 4pm

Concessions will be available & parking is FREE

Not Evil Just Wrong shows how Global Warming alarmism and the tax increases that go along with it are going to increase costs for working families during one of the worst recessions in living memory.

Al Gore and his allies want to ban fossil fuels in the developed world. This would devastate the American economy and drive jobs to India and China.

Be part of the resistance. With your help we can bypass the barriers to distribution that Hollywood and the mainstream media put up to stop you from hearing the truth.

Be part of the premiere night by hosting a screening in your home, community center or church. Be part of the cinematic tea party movement and tell Al Gore and the elites that you are fed up with taxes and restrictions that threaten jobs across the country.

George Washington

"..and it may truly be said, that never did nature and fortune combine more perfectly to make a man great.."

– Thomas Jefferson, about George Washington, 1814

By age sixteen, Washington had copied out by hand, 110 Rules of Civility & Decent Behavior in Company and Conversation. They are based on a set of rules composed by French Jesuits in 1595. Presumably they were copied out as part of an exercise in penmanship assigned by young Washington's schoolmaster. The first English translation of the French rules appeared in 1640, and are ascribed to Francis Hawkins the twelve-year-old son of a doctor.

Today many, if not all of these rules, sound a little fussy if not downright silly. It would be easy to dismiss them as outdated and appropriate to a time of powdered wigs and quills, but they reflect a focus that is increasingly difficult to find. They all have in common a focus on other people rather than the narrow focus of our own self-interests that we find so prevalent today. Fussy or not, they represent more than just manners. They are the small sacrifices that we should all be willing to make for the good of all and the sake of living together.

These rules proclaim our respect for others and in turn give us the gift of self-respect and heightened self-esteem.

Richard Brookhiser, in his book on Washington wrote that "all modern manners in the western world were originally aristocratic. Courtesy meant behavior appropriate to a court; chivalry comes from chevalier – a knight. Yet Washington was to dedicate himself to freeing America from a court's control. Could manners survive the operation? Without realizing it, the Jesuits who wrote them, and the young man who copied them, were outlining and absorbing a system of courtesy appropriate to equals and near-equals. When the company for whom the decent behavior was to be performed expanded to the nation, Washington was ready. Parson Weems got this right, when he wrote that it was 'no wonder every body honoured him who honoured every body.'"

The Rules:
