  • 'In the pink' has whole new meaning

    I understand that the color pink has come to designate those with breast cancer, which leaves out men for the most part. But today I wonder whether pink is confined to breast cancer. Do some of those women running around with pink hats have colon cancer? Or lung cancer?

Soon ice will cover the lake, snow will fall and the black-and-white world will appear rather desolate and lifeless. However, there will be more life there than most people realize.

  • Fort Carson platoon

    The folks lining both sides of Main Street last sunny Monday were privileged to witness a spectacle not often seen in these bucolic parts; an honest-to-gosh, horn-blasting, flag-flying, dignitary-waving, all-American motorcade.

  • 'Cabin baby' couple arrested on felony counts

    After a story about the travails of Greg and Summer Leon in last week’s Canyon Courier, offers to assist the young couple — financially and otherwise — flooded in from around the mountain area. While that charitable impulse is both understandable and laudable, in this case it may be misplaced.

  • Evergreen couple invent a place in nautical history

    Celebrated know-something Ralph Waldo Emerson once famously declared that, if you build a better mousetrap, the world will beat a path to your door.

    What Evergreen residents Art and Sharon Onweller invented isn’t a mousetrap, exactly, but it’s a mighty step forward in the art of confounding rodents, and the nautical world has definitely begun to take notice. It’s called the OFFBoard Vermin Shield, a deceptively simple white disc that’s giving modern seafarers a needed edge in the 4,000-year-old fight to keep mice and rats on shore and out of the galley.
