Hopefully you’re consulting something other than contemporary cinema when you look at the big questions, such as, “What’s the point of life?” Indeed, “If I Stay” can’t answer queries like this — and doesn’t try — but it maintains its own charms nonetheless.
The death penalty story is back. John Hickenlooper and Complete Colorado joined forces — sort of — to once again put the issue front and center in the governor's race. Hickenlooper's part was in giving a clumsy answer to a hypothetical question about Nathan Dunlap in a not-yet-aired CNN interview on capital punishment. And Complete Colorado — a conservative website — was the one that got hold of the unreleased audio featuring the clumsy answer.
There is a plan underway to drain Elkhead Reservoir, poison it and kill every fish in the lake. This plan is coming from the people that have been killing the fish in the Yampa River for years.
I am writing this letter to wish Owen Grant the best of luck in his retirement. It truly takes an extraordinary person to dedicate his life to such a career, especially the way you have done.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris and Tammy at Miller Appliance for their extraordinary customer service.
Having read articles and letters in the past concerning the Luttrell Barn and what to do with it and talking with community members, among them Dana Duran, Pam Foster, Melody Villard and Pat McCaffrey, who have been spearheading Saving the Barn, the Moffat County Farm Bureau Board would like to throw their support into this vital and worthwhile project.

The signs of autumn become more apparent every day. There are more rainy days and cooler evenings, and children are starting school. Soon, there will be a community coat drive, and hunting seasons are about to begin.
I feel your presence as I drive down the road. I thought about how you would have enjoyed this trip to State Fair. You would have enjoyed it because of the reason for the trip, to watch your granddaughter. I thought about you more on this particular trip than I have since you’ve been gone.
I was looking through my old cookbook that no longer has front pages, and I turned to a page that featured recipes for pickled and spiced vegetables and fruits that can be used as “accompaniments for meats.”
Evidence continues to pile up that Medicare Advantage plans are no advantage for taxpayers. MA plans, as they are called, are one alternative for seniors to receive their Medicare benefits. But in this case, the benefits come from government payments to private insurance carriers, not directly from the federal government.
Jeff needed a workin’ pen for his little herd of cows. He decided all he needed was some panels and a head gate. He rounded up some 16-foot panels of continuous fence, a metal head gate and two 8-foot posts.
This week’s column was inspired by our son Jamie. It happened when we were talking about the hurried lives we all have and sometimes not taking the time to notice the small things.
Last August, a niece who teaches high school posted on Facebook, “Oh, hello, teaching anxiety. There you are. I was wondering when you’d show up.” A week later, a friend in Alabama wrote, “I am going to start my 10th year of teaching next week. Can a person be full of excitement and dread at the same time?”
