November 26, 2014 Sally Brown to Charlie Brown: “…but Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck. You heard what Linus was saying out there. Those early Pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too. We should just be thankful for being together. I think that’s what they mean by ‘Thanksgiving,’ Charlie Brown.”

In light of the Thanksgiving holiday, we at COLAP are grateful for many things, especially the overwhelming support from the legal community. This year, we especially want to express our profound gratitude to the entire staff of the Colorado Bar Association for their constant encouragement of COLAP and the well-being of all Colorado judges, attorneys, and law students. As an aside, we offer our best wishes to Chuck in his “transition” at the end of December after 34 years at the CBA’s helm!

Alternate Way to Print When There is No “File” Heading or Printer Icon to Click On

Unfortunately, there are instances when there is no obvious way to print because there is no “File” heading, printer icon, or “Printer Friendly” text to click on. Here’s how you can force the printer dialog box to come up so you can print. By the way, this works on the Internet, Word, Outlook and other applications. Press <Ctrl> and <p> together. This will bring up the print dialog box that you were looking for. The <Ctrl><p> method is a shortcut and will work even if you do see “File” or other icons for printing.

Contact Reba Nance at if you have questions.
