Mike Littwin: Peyton Manning’s Super Bowl storybook ending

Of all Peyton Manning’s many remarkable career statistics, this one may be the most remarkable of them all: When Manning inevitably announces his retirement sometime over the next few days or weeks, he will become only the second Hall-of-Fame-caliber quarterback in NFL history to have gone out on top, with a Super Bowl victory in his last game, with the storied sunset beckoning, with no more worlds to conquer.

From Pipi’s Pasture: It’s a powerful winter

Late last fall, when meteorologists were predicting the upcoming winter, some experts suggested that the elements of the 2016 winter might be powerful for some parts of the U.S., even likening the winter to a monster. I don’t know that the winter has been monster-like, but residents of Northwest Colorado might agree that it’s been “powerful.” When I think back to my childhood winters on our Morapos ranch, this one seems similar to those times.

Lila Herod: Be like 'Bill'

I may not have a Facebook page of my own, but I frequently use my husband’s account to stalk our family and friends. This habit has become a source of constant contention in our marriage. He is always telling me to get my own Facebook page and to quit commenting on the posts of his friends because he claims I make him “sound like a girl.” His protests only cause me to laugh in response.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ has punch but gets winded in finale

Any good sequel should allow a storyline come full circle, but like a pair of pants attempting to cover a gargantuan gut, “Kung Fu Panda 3” doesn’t quite get there.
