Over a Cup of Coffee: Chocolate Easter Cake

Easter is just two weeks away — can you believe it? The shelves in the stores are loaded with delicious Easter candies, mostly chocolate. It’s a challenge to push a cart down the candy aisle without loading it up with goodies. All of the thoughts about chocolate have made me think about a menu for Easter.

Sasha Nelson: Proposed water bill offers barrel full of common sense

In 2000, I left the Yampa Valley and headed for the southern hemisphere to begin seven years of graduate school. Three flights and two days later, I arrived in Melbourne, Australia. When I stepped off the plane that first day in a foreign land I was met with the familiar sights of signs for American fast food and big-box stores. I was puzzled by the number of large barrels at the sides of buildings and cisterns on the skyline. These were unusual sights for me and likely would be for most Coloradans.

The Bock’s Office: ‘Cinderella’ a lovely rendering of an already-told fairy tale

The newest adaptation of “Cinderella” has the unfortunate situation of two confining glass slippers, each made from different but demanding audience expectations. Whichever of these shoes fits best, the other probably won’t be happy.

Mike Littwin: Still tilting at Obamacare, as the numbers pile up

You don't have be a mathematician, or a scientist, to understand the numbers. Any way you add them up, it looks as if Obamacare is actually working.

Janet Sheridan: Puzzles worth pondering

Some time ago, I wrote a column candidly confessing my inability to solve life’s mysteries. I hoped you, my readers, would contact me with possible solutions so I could sleep. You didn’t. So I’ve decided to give you a second chance with the following perplexing situations.

Lance Scranton: The great science debate settled!

I’m not a scientist, but I read about science quite often and stay well informed. The news I’ve been reading lately makes me very concerned by the absolute certainty that some in the field are describing as “settled science” implying that anyone who disagrees is obviously uneducated, ill-informed, conspiratorial, ignorant or just plain stupid (and likely an oil-loving, coal-supporting, anti-environmental, greedy capitalist).
