For anyone seeking Colorado health care, trying to find out where to get help can be a daunting task. The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, one of several state agencies with a focus on health care, has put together a handy directory, Who Does What in Colorado’s Health Care, to put you in the right direction. Referrals are to local and federal government, and non-profit agencies as well as state agencies. In addition, more focused directories are available, such as:
· Medicaid Provider Lookup
· Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP) Provider Directory
· Prenatal Plus Provider Agencies in Colorado by County
Though not really a directory, the Health Care Resource Book 2007 is a guide to major Colorado health care programs. Try a search in our catalog to turn up additional directories.

- Designate your sober driver before going out and give that person your keys;
- If you are impaired, call a taxi, use mass transit or call a sober friend or family member
to help get you home safely;
- Always buckle up – it’s still your best defense against an impaired driver;

make other arrangements to get where they are going safely;
- Motorists can report drunk and aggressive drivers by calling STAR-CSP (*277), a free

"The decision to feed hummingbirds carries along the responsibility to offer them fresh, healthy food and a safe, clean feeding station. Forget the commercial nectars or red dyes. Plain old sugar dissolved in water at a ratio of one part sugar to four parts water is best. This approximates the sweetness of flower nectar. Use only white table sugar. Honey and artificial sweeteners have been shown to be harmful to hummingbirds. Because of the high sugar level, hummingbird nectar may sour and mold may grow in the feeder in warm weather. When preparing your sugar-water, boil the water for a few minutes, stir in the sugar and let it cool, then fill the feeder and refrigerate any excess solution. Keep your feeder clean by rinsing it out between fillings. If you see spots of mold, scrub with a brush. If the mold persists use a 5% dilute bleach solution, then rinse thoroughly. Replace old nectar with fresh sugar water every week in spring and fall, every two to three days as it warms up, and daily if the temperature rises above 85 degrees."
This publication also offers facts on Colorado hummingbirds, including their coloring, flight, and their enormous appetites - they eat up to five times their body weight each day!
If you don't have a feeder, the Division of Wildlife's website lists places you can go to view hummingbirds.

In 2003 Governor Owens issued Executive Order D 002 03 to coordinate efforts to eradicate this plant on public land. In response to the Executive Order the Department of Natural Resources published a report, 10-Year Strategic Plan on the Comprehensive Removal of Tamarisk and the Coordinated Restoration of Colorado’s Native Riparian Ecosystems, in 2004.
You may wonder what this plant looks like. It isn’t just a little weed, easy to overlook. Thick stands, up to 15 feet high, obstruct views of lakes and rivers and make access to them difficult. It crowds out native shrubs and trees that wildlife depend on and is of no use to native species. Difficult to eradicate, the most critical problem is that it consumes enormous amounts of water. One acre of tamarisk uses 1.3 million gallons of water per year. For pictures and details, check out the above reports and the following state publications:
Streamlines, v.20, no. 3, pp. 4-5

After the Boettchers' deaths in the 1950s, the mansion's future was in question. The neighborhood was changing, and as Capitol Hill's days as an exclusive and wealthy neighborhood had passed, the mansion was no longer practical as a single-family home. Other neighborhood houses were being torn down or converted into apartments and office buildings. So the home was given by the Boettcher Foundation to the State of Colorado for use as a governor's residence, where not only could the governor's family reside, but the home could also serve as space for official functions. Despite initial opposition from the State, the mansion was finally accepted in 1959 and Gov. Stephen McNichols and his family moved in.
Many of the Boettcher's furnishings can still be seen in the mansion, while others have been brought in during succeeding governors' administrations. Under former First Lady Frances Owens, significant restoration was done along with redecoration of some of the rooms. Well-known furnishings in the mansion include a Louis XIV desk; a chandelier that hung in the White House during the Grant administration (when Colorado became a state); rare 18th century tapestries; and china from the USS Colorado.
To commemorate the Boettchers' legacy in the mansion, Governor Bill Owens in 2003 issued an Executive Order officially renaming it the "Governor's Residence at the Boettcher Mansion."
For more on the mansion, its history, and availability for special events, see the mansion's brand-new homepage.
