In the spirit of the First Amendment, we honored two freedom fighters who have utilized the power of words and actions to advance personal and economic freedom in Colorado. Rocky Mountain News columnist and editorialist Peter Blake spent his professional career espousing the virtues of liberty. Philanthropist Tim Travis has devoted countless hours to The Boy Scouts of America, University of Colorado Hospital and the National Western Stock Show. We, also, were honored to have with us another staunch defender of individual liberties including the First Amendment. Laura Ingraham, former Reagan speechwriter and law clerk for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is a nationally syndicated talk show host and best selling author. Her latest book Power to the People is number one on the New York Times bestseller list.
