  • Not immune to the fires

    Just because we’ve dodged some bullets over the years here in Evergreen, we’re not immune to fires. Fires like we’ve just seen in Northern California. Fires that flatten everything in their path. And kill people in the process. This year, they were out west. Next year, they could be in our own backyards.

  • Let’s give the president some credit

    If you’ve read my articles you know I’m not a big fan of the president. My objections are much more about character issues than policy. I just don’t believe he has a high level of integrity.

  • Journalists gathering the info you want

    One night last month, when Hurricane Irma was beginning to bear down on Florida, I was being honored along with five other far-more deserving journalists by being inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame.
