  • Lobos’ Himmelman gets in tuneup

    CONIFER — Travis Himmelman was dealing with a nagging knee, but it didn’t limit the Conifer senior too much in the season-opening Lobo Invitational on Dec. 4. What did limit him, in his opinion, was the lack of wrestlers at the 12th annual meet.

    “I wish I could’ve gotten more matches. I only got two matches,” he said. “The last kid was a tough kid, a good win.”

  • Flying by the seat of TSA junk

    By now you’ve probably read or heard a story about the invasive policies of the TSA. Here’s another example of manipulation by the financial elite. Struggling to understand how the minds of these afflicted affluenzas work, I am wont to admit their incredible success. The entire country has been brought to its underwear by the likes of Michael Chernoff, George Soros and many other CEOs and lobbyists.

    2011 will be one tough year for legislative budget writers in Colorado. To begin, they will face one of the toughest budget years in our state’s history. Add to that the fact that split control of the legislature means the Joint Budget Committee will be made up of three Republicans and three Democrats.

    It is seldom that we have three crystal-clear nights in a row at the time of the full moon.

    Many holiday traditions in the U.S. are tinged with a taste of Merry Ole’ England. Families head to the theater to have their holiday spirits renewed by Dickens’ grumpy yet lovable Ebeneezer Scrooge. Singers gather round doorsteps to serenade neighbors with candlelight carols. What better way to ring in the holidays than immersing yourself in the grand tradition of King Henry’s Renaissance court at the 24th annual Madrigal Marketplace and Faire presented by the Evergreen High School Performing Arts Department.
