Following the Governor’s Executive Order on Saturday, the Secretary of State’s Office has set up a process that will enable Coloradans access to notary services without in-person contact.  

“Stopping the spread of COVID-19 while still providing the services Coloradans rely on has been our main focus over the last two weeks,” said Secretary of State Jena Griswold.  “Remote notarization is the latest of these important services.”

On Saturday, Governor Polis issued an Executive Order that ordered the temporary suspension of the personal appearance requirement before notarial officers to perform notarizations due to the presence of coronavirus disease in Colorado.

Today, Secretary Griswold has issued emergency rules that outlines the procedures and requirements for remote notarization in Colorado during this state of emergency.

The notice includes the adopted rules, a statement of basis, and statement of justification. For an unofficial copy of the notary rules as adopted and effective 3/30/2020, please click here.

The Secretary of State’s Office has worked with stakeholders, including the Colorado Bar Association, on legislation on remote notary service over the last several years. The emergency remote notary process builds on this work.

Press Release

While the devastating financial impact of COVID-19 continues to escalate, Ent Credit Union responded by eliminating fees, reducing loan rates and launching emergency loans to help ease its members’ financial and emotional stress.

“Until further notice, we are suspending or drastically reducing fees,” said Chad Graves, Ent CEO. “This includes eliminating fees for excessive transactions for savings and money market accounts, minimum account balances, Skip-A-Pay and credit card usage for loan payments. Our overdraft/non-sufficient funds fees are now just $0.01. And we are also waiving early CD withdrawal fees to help members access their money for immediate needs.”

“We are also temporarily eliminating limits for the number of transfers from savings and money market accounts,” Graves said.

Ent wants members who are now without income and struggling to make their mortgage payment to reach out for help. Members won’t be charged late fees or have their credit impacted due to slow payment during this crisis. “They just need to talk to us. We’re here to help,” he said.

Included in the extensive list of ways Ent is taking action to help reduce financial strain for members are long- and short-term emergency loans of $1,500 to $10,000 with a 0.00% to 5.99% annual percentage rate. 

In order to help keep Colorado businesses strong, Ent is also offering emergency business loans, doubling its business line of credit limit (up to $50,000) and offering assistance programs to corporate banking members.

“I’ve said it before, but as this pandemic progresses, I feel it’s worth repeating. At times like these, I am especially thankful we are a not-for-profit financial institution. This allows us the flexibility to do what is in everyone’s best interest – rather than what’s best for the bottom line,” Graves said.

Widefield School District 3 is offering free lunch during the school closings, so that no student has to go hungry because they aren't going to school. Okay I'm sure their parent's would have fed them, but an unexpected expense of having to provide more meals all of a sudden when your budget is tight enough to qualify for free lunch, is a hardship that the district wants to alleviate for families.

It's intended for students, but they aren't asking questions and they wont turn anyone away. If you're hungry and your budgets dried up, go get some lunch.

There are 3 sites, one at each of the Jr. Highs; Sproul, Janitell and Watson. They're open from 11-1.

Thank you District 3!

Press Release (

The revolution of truly gourmet pizza vending machines throughout the country is upon us. It was announced today that Basil Street, a high-tech, innovative pizza vending machine company, has closed a $10 million priced round of funding, setting the stage for a multi-city pilot program rollout launching in April across the United States.

Using state-of-the-art robotics technology, a groundbreaking cooking process and the freshest ingredients, Basil Street is primed to change the way consumers think about vending machine cuisine forever.  

"After three years of perfecting the process to deliver unmatched brick-oven style gourmet pizza through the convenience of a stand-alone vending machine, we are excited about the next step to bring this unique proprietary concept, and more importantly great tasting pizza, to market," said Deglin Kenealy, CEO of Basil Street. "This round of funding enables us to kick-off our pilot program next month with the hopes of escalating into a full-scale launch of our kiosks by the end of Q3 in 2020. In a time of robotic solutions, this one is truly revolutionary."

The initial machines in the pilot program are in high-demand, as the company has received numerous requests to participate. Those inquiring include large corporate facilities, major medical facilities, universities, military bases and sporting arenas throughout North America. Basil Street is also building a list of global interest for future deployments. In addition, two machines will be delivered to a Basil Street partner, who is one of the world's largest food and beverage manufacturers.

Locations for the pilot program are still being confirmed, but target regions include Texas, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina and Southern California, where Basil Street is headquartered.

Basil Street machines feature three 10-inch Italian style, thin crust pizza offerings: four-cheese, pepperoni and a "Pizza of the Month" selling between $6.95-$11.95. All of Basil Street's pizzas are made with the freshest ingredients and then flash frozen to preserve the flavor and freshness before being cooked-to-order in about three minutes. The cooking process utilizes their patent pending three element non-microwave speed oven. The combination of the revolutionary oven technology and pizza quality create a finished product that rivals a high-end brick oven pizzeria. Basil Street has figured out how to deliver a wood-fire oven experience pizza in a fraction of the time.

Basil Street's business model focuses on providing value and great tasting, high-quality, health-conscious products for its customers. To ensure these values, Basil Street will stock their machines on a weekly basis, utilize the best quality ingredients to create a fantastic product for the masses.
