Sweet alternatives offer a healthy boost to holidays

Another holiday means another feast, and ample opportunities to gorge on sugar, spice and everything nice. But as we all know, sugar is not very nice to the body health-wise.

Imagination Library: The free gift that keeps on giving

What could be better for a young child than to get a present in the mail every single month addressed directly to them? And what could be better for a parent than for that present to be a book — something that will educate, enrich and enliven their young child’s imagination?

Conservation Colorado: America’s public lands — our greatest gift to each other

November through January is called, in many countries, the “silly season.” When I see homemade fringed and bedazzled candy cane sweaters, reindeer horn bedecked vehicles and eggnog drinking parties, I have to admit that this is a season filled with silliness. The frivolity seems to appear in the strangest of places as our President pardons gobblers and our politicians rush to pass bills like last minute gift givers rush to complete shopping on Christmas Eve.

From Pipi’s Pasture: Christmas wish lists — just for fun

Sometimes I think of some pretty goofy things. For example, just after the last snowstorm I saw four magpies fly into the crab apple tree outside the window.

I wondered what they were doing there; were they looking for dried crab apples? And then I wondered what they would put on a Christmas wish list (if they knew what that was). Would it be crab apples or grain or bird food?

Thinking About Health: Medicare will pay for obesity counseling, really?

It’s amazing how much we talk about making people healthier. Consider all the discussion in America about overweight people who are stigmatized for making poor food choices. Think about the warnings that obesity is a leading cause of preventable death. So, it’s puzzling that Medicare offers an obesity counseling benefit that must be one of the best kept secrets outside of Washington.

Museum of Northwest Colorado: Off the grid in Craig

Kerosene lamps and other nostalgic antiques bring a sense of charm to many Moffat County homes and often have specific histories connected with earlier times of the family that used them.
