Patrick F. Brower is the former editor and publisher of the Sky-Hi News, and a group of weekly and daily newspapers, in Granby, Colorado. He was published extensively for 28 years, as a reporter, editor and columnist and has received numerous statewide and regional awards for his writing. He’s also had short fiction published in the Redneck Review of Literature. His news articles have also been published in the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News.

Brower personally covered almost all of the hearings and interactions relating to the Killdozer rampage before it took place. Brower was also a victim of the rampage and extensively covered the event itself as well as its aftermath. After the newspapers were sold in 2007, Brower owned and operated his own public affairs consulting firm before working in grassroots economic development with the Grand Enterprise Initiative in Grand County. He continues to write.

Brower graduated from the University of Virginia with a B.A. in American Studies.

He is an accomplished jazz drummer, an avid cross-country skier, runner and a masters level national champion biathlete. He has three children and continues to live in Granby, Colorado.

Called “KILLDOZER: The True Story of the Colorado Bulldozer Rampage,” Patrick’s book takes readers through the rampage’s origins, the shocking event itself and the peculiar way in which the perpetrator of the rampage has become something like an American folk hero.

The rampage took place on June 4, 2004 in the small town of Granby, Colorado, where Marvin Heemeyer, a former muffler shop owner, worked in secrecy for months and built a steel-enshrouded and concrete fortified bulldozer tank armed with three rifles — one of which was a 50-calibre sniper rifle. Invincible in this tank, in a two-and-a-half hour splurge, he proceeded to destroy much of the town, causing $10 million in damage.

Ben Franklin challenged us that we will have a republic only if we can keep it. But this great nation will be unable to heed his words if our citizens are not proactive in educating others—especially fifth graders learning about government for the first time.

When Andy McKean founded the Liberty Day Institute in 1996, he never anticipated the things we would accomplish. Because of years of hard work and dedication exerted by countless individuals and our many partners, hundreds of thousands of kids have received copies of the the Liberty Day Institute booklets containing the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

Many of these youngsters have learned directly from national and community leaders, parents, teachers, college students, and so many others just what it means to be an American. the Liberty Day Institute has strived to educate tomorrow’s leaders exactly why it is that our nation’s founding documents are so important—and why it is so essential that we preserve them and the freedoms they entail.
