  • Women aren’t going anywhere

    “Now I know it’s a national law in America that women are more evolved than men, but if that’s true, how come they are still so impressed by shiny objects?” quips Bill Maher. Oh, ha, ha. Like a blonde joke, I guess?

    I would like to extend a huge thanks to our Evergreen businesses that donated gifts and coupons in December for the Evergreen Players 2012 season subscription promotion.

  • A little more Goldwater, a little less Plato

    Many Americans can recall what was perhaps the first really nasty ad of the television era, run by Lyndon Johnson’s 1964 presidential campaign. In it, a little girl counts the petals she picks from a daisy. Gradually, her voice is replaced with a countdown and then, ominously, a mushroom cloud consumes the screen. Vote for Johnson, the ad suggests, or perish in a nuclear holocaust.

  • Technology giving stalkers many new tools

    Stalking has always been a frightening crime. For a victim, it means constant fear, anxiety and self-doubt. One in six women and one in 19 men are stalked in their lifetime, most often by a current or former intimate partner. Unfortunately, stalking has changed with the times.

  • Right advice on wrong end of horse

    You never know when you’re going to have a life changing experience.
        Stories about both the untimely death of former CU and CSU track coach Jerry Quiller at the age of 69 and his funeral in the last couple of weeks reminded me of the impact Quiller had on my development in a way that I’m sure he never even realized.

    Gits’ profile of sushi chef was insightful, inspirational
    Editor:
    Deciding that enough was enough, the summer after my freshman year at South High in Denver, I followed the sun to Southern California. There, I spent the next 46-or-so years lost amidst the climbers/skiers’ eatery hangouts and abundant sushi bars. Indeed, I have become, somewhat, a self-appointed expert in the enjoyment of sushi — that nori-wrapped, one-bite delight.
