It’s a nickname that’s already taken by another sportsman, but friends and family may be sorely tempted to start calling him Eddie the Eagle. Moffat County High School’s Eddie Smercina signed Wednesday to play football for Chadron State College this fall.

Easter is about two weeks away, and I found a great picture book to read to children or have them read it to you. “The Littlest Bunny in Colorado” is intended for ages 4 and up. The story is told in rhyme, and the illustrations are beautiful. Readers even get to take part in an Easter egg hunt.
Yes, it failed; actually it wasn’t even voted on so technically, nothing really happened. When the next healthcare bill comes up for vote I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that it will pass. Democracy is a messy thing and sometimes even the best of intentions are thwarted by over exuberance. I’m not a parliamentarian but constant news cycles don’t give too much credence to the give and take of politics and the deals that must be made to get legislation passed that suits the interests of a host of representatives from 50 different states.
