Ticket for Loud Bike DISMISSED!
By Daniel J. Chacon, Rocky Mountain News August 9, 2007 The first and only ticket that police have issued to a motorcyclist under Denver’s controversial new noise ordinance was dismissed Wednesday.
The city’s decision to drop the case highlights a fundamental flaw – Denver police aren’t equipped with the $1,000 noise monitors needed to make the charge stick, said Wade Eldridge, lawyer for the ticketed biker.
“In any case in which it’s properly challenged, the city has an impossible burden,” said Eldridge.
The reason Assistant City Attorney April Snook cited in her motion to dismiss the case was the city was “unable to prove charge beyond a reasonable doubt.”

Bad news for Texas Riders, State Rep. Anna Mowrey has decided to retire from the Legislature. Representative Mowrey has voted for every Bill we have gotten to a committee she served on or to the Floor for a vote. She has repeatedly stated that your chair was the most efficient lobbyist in the capitol. Whe I start to explain I am not a lobbyist she stops me by saying “I know, I know but you can show those lobbyist a thing or two.”
Those of you in her district have a tough job to put someone as supportive as her in that position. Get started now.
Our trip to Ft. Worth was successful. We attended a meeting at the Wino Crew M/C’s Clubhouse to speak to riders interested in starting a new chapter of TMRA 2. There was definitely enough interest so it was decided to get the new chapter underway next month. The Wino Crew M/C has a fantastic Clubhouse located at 6005 Tension St. The first meeting will be held there on the third Wednesday beginning next month. Any interested parties are invited to attend.
Thanks to the Crew for stepping forward.
You may remember Rick Perry Vetoed the Bill spending $154 million for community colleges this year. Realizing the whiplash effect it was having on him he has now offered to replace the money. However his proposals show the same disdain his administration has shown for rules. It will involve shifting money from several sources and cutting funds from others, as well as holding off payments due until the next budget date rolls around. This will bear a lot of watching.
During the hearing Senator Armbrister learned just how hard his job would be for the next 1 ½ years.
When he made the statement that the governor’s door is always open the crowd openly showed their disagreement with his statement by laughing loudly. This brought forth an angry response from the red faced senator.
Ex-Speaker Dennis Hastert in the US Congress has announced he will not be seeking reelection to another term. This will create a frantic rush for both Dems band Repubs to get ready for the race. In the meantime our Presidential Campaigns are looking like our last governor’s race here in Texas.
Bring your ideas for Bylaw changes and Goals and Objectives with you when you come to the meeting on Saturday.
