I enjoy making fancy desserts for Easter dinner. That doesn’t mean that they take a lot of time; it means that they’re made with puddings, whipped topping, fruit, etc. This year I’m short on time so I am going to bake a yellow cake, leave it unfrosted, and then provide bowls of thawed and sweetened strawberries and peaches, whipped topping and vanilla ice cream. Family members can put them together as they like.
When my brother, sisters and I were growing up on the ranch, we spent some worrisome days just prior to Easter. We looked forward to the holiday, and we worried that we might not get to have an Easter egg hunt. Our dad always said that an early Easter meant an early spring, but in Moffat County it really didn’t matter whether it was March or April; it could always storm.

A story doesn’t have to be true, moral or even make complete sense in order to be meaningful. If none of these things bother you, “The Grand Budapest Hotel” has a vacancy.
When my husband and I entered our assigned room in the downtown Denver hotel, we saw an open suitcase on an easy chair, clothes strewn about, and a football game on TV. Joel about-faced, dragged a baffled me back into the corridor, and rushed off to the lobby.
I see it silently in stores all around town. They cry out for me, take me home, take me home let me go home with you. It is the pastel-colored flowers, reminding me of spring.
On April 23, Moffat County High School will host the Lewis “Dude” Dent Memorial Award Selection Dinner for the outstanding senior male and female athlete of MCHS for 2014. The event will highlight the academic and athletic achievements of the best male and female student athletes Moffat County has to offer. Many of us are aware of the achievements and heroic nature of Dent’s life. However, others in the community may have no idea why one of MCHS’s most prestigious student awards is named after Dent.
This week’s book for young adult readers (probably aimed at middle school age) has an unusual title and a rather unexpected plot. “Stay Where You Are & Then Leave” was written by John Boyne, the author of “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas,” which became a Miramax feature film. The novel was published by Henry Holt and Company (2013).
April is the month for Easter and is usually full of dazzling sunshine, greening of lawns and flowers blooming. All of those might be reasons that spirits soar and we continue our growth gracefully, joyously and creatively as we learn about ourselves and the beauty within us.
There are several recipes around for breakfast casseroles. I especially like those that you refrigerate overnight and then pop in the oven the next morning.
County fairs have been around a long time. Perhaps they began as a way to celebrate the end of the summer harvest. Whatever the reason, I can imagine how people must have looked forward to county fair.
I've seen so many people buying chicks this year. Whether starting a new flock or replenishing an existing flock, baby chicks bring delight and smiles to most. They also, unfortunately, bring a bit of work and require some knowledge to maintain in a healthy and productive manner.

The legalization of marijuana in Colorado has brought to a head a common point of contention that has happened in state after state. It is a generational change, a population shift that is the result of the inevitable roll of civilization.
The session will end May 7. We’ve passed 114 bills and killed 118. There probably are another 250 bills in the system, so it will be a busy month.
