Janet Sheridan: Finding middle ground

City’s conflict resolution on deer issue a lesson in civility for Congress

I fled my principal’s office to regain optimism in a kindergarten classroom. At the “Create a Play” center, I found Sally and Joey in a costuming battle. Sally disliked Joey’s choice of a sombrero and insisted he wear an umbrella hat instead: “This one looks better, Joey. That one’s dumb.” “Fine. I’m not playing. You’re not the boss of me.”

Aging Well: Help available for sleep struggles

It’s easy to take sleep for granted, that is, until zzzzz’s are replaced with restlessness, tossing and turning and daytime exhaustion. While the occasional poor night’s sleep is inconvenient, chronic sleep disruption can significantly affect people’s quality of life, making it difficult for them to concentrate and cope with stress, increasing their risk of accidents and illness and exacerbating underlying health conditions.

Andy Bockelman: Scarey moments few, ineffective in ‘The Rite’

How do you make a movie on a controversial subject like exorcism when the definitive story has already been told? It’s a tough task to undertake, but the makers of “The Rite” give it their all. Displaced and disillusioned about his life, seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O’Donoghue) no longer knows what to make of God, even after being ordained as a low-level clergyman.

MCHS boys basketball team’s second half struggles continue in loss to Palisade

In Saturday’s 53-44 loss to Palisade, the Moffat County High School boys varsity basketball team showed that it was capable of playing at the same level as opponents. The problem, however, was similar to Friday’s loss to Delta — a sluggish third quarter. “Defense killed us in the third quarter,” said Angelo Raftopoulos, an MCHS senior who led the team with 15 points. “We had tough D all the first half, and then in the third quarter for just a couple of minutes we didn’t get the D going and they got a quick 10 points on us.”
