He is retired from 35 years of teaching physics and mathematics at the high school and Jr. college levels.

Frances Shure is a Licensed Professional Counselor who is now retired from her private practice and work as an adjunct instructor at Naropa University at Boulder, Colorado.

She co-founded Colorado 9/11 Truth in 2004 and is a member of the 9/11 Consensus Panel as well as Medical Professionals for 9/11 Truth. She has brought her expertise to the study of 9/11 by authoring the groundbreaking series, “Why Do Good People Become Silent—Or Worse—About 9/11?” Published at Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth, these articles examine the psychological resistance to information that contradicts the official account of 9/11 – or to any strongly held belief. Frances is the mother of four and the grandmother of nine grandchildren.
