  • Helping the healthcare system get well

    I hate to say it, but all the discussion about repealing and replacing Obamacare is like rearranging the chairs on the deck of the Titanic.

So whether we replace the act or leave it as is until we change the way medicine is practiced in America the costs will be high.

  • Bears springing into action after winter hibernation

    By Christie Greene

    Last fall, as the days grew shorter and the sun moved lower in the sky, the bears listened to their instincts and began eating, really eating, up to 20,000 calories a day. As their foods sources dwindled and the temperatures began to sink, they ambled into the woods to make a den.

    In the meantime, we adjusted our clocks, made soup and readied the snowblowers. While we settled in front of the fire with a book, the thick-coated, fat-laden bruins curled up inside cozy dens and began living off their acquired fat stores.

  • Lobos drop third straight

    GOLDEN — After winning its season opener, the Conifer baseball team dropped its third-straight game in a 10-0 loss to Golden on Thursday night.

    Trailing 1-0 entering the bottom half of the third inning, Golden delivered the dagger as Noah Mitchell hit a grand slam to give Golden a 6-0 lead.

    Six Lobos were able to record a hit, but that would be all the momentum Conifer could muster.

  • Evergreen shut out by Chatfield 1-0

    LITTLETON — If you can find a way to win the game, then the statistics usually aren’t as important. As was the case for the Lady Chargers as they defeated Evergreen 1-0 despite taking just two shots on goal in the win.

    The lone goal came off the foot of Chatfield senior Perry Hayman in the opening half of play.

    Evergreen had several chances but couldn’t find the back of the net in any of their seven shots on goal.
