Despite (or maybe because of) opposition from Rep. Doug Bruce, the western painted turtle continues it's plod toward becoming the state reptile. A bill giving it the honor unanimously passed the state senate Tuesday. Now it only needs the signature of the governor to join the roster of other official state creatures.
A gold star to the first non-fourth grader who can name the state dinosaur, mammal and insect.

Time to make the Garden of the Gods the State Mountain Bike Trail (I know, there are many better choices) then City Council has to open it back up again.

I don't know the state bird or mammal, but is the official state invertebrate Douglas Bruce?
