    Recently a vehicle drove off the road and into a stream in Jefferson County. Fortunately, the driver was not hurt, but during an investigation it was discovered the older driver was returning from the doctor’s office.

    The Constitution reserves the process for nominating presidential candidates to state and local governments, but it has largely been ceded to the political parties. I believe many voters think this nomination cycle is a mess. 

  • The Clean Power Plan, which requires utility companies to decrease carbon emissions by more than 30 percent by 2030, was federally passed in August. The implementation of the plan means a big shift in Colorado’s energy industry is needed and is already building momentum.

  • Editor’s note: This story was published before Saturday’s drawing for the $949.8 million jackpot — and then nobody won (not even our office pool). We’ve updated the numbers to reflect the mind-boggling estimated jackpot for Wednesday’s drawing, but our advice still applies.

  • Dear Editor,

    Back in 1961, I worked at Nedicks at Time Square, in New York City. I sold mostly hotdogs and sodas. Nedicks made a great hotdog and they did a thriving business. At that time, hotdogs cost 15 cents each and I made the minimum wage of $1 per hour. Then one day, it was announced in the papers that the government was raising the minimum wage to $1.15 per hour. The very next day, Nedicks raised the price of hotdogs to 25 cents each, and a week later I was let go. Prices that were not controlled by our government went up also.

  • The end of 2015 is nearly here and a new day is dawning for Colorado’s solar power. With solar installation costs falling, the efficiency of solar cells improving, and the threats of air pollution and climate disruption mounting, solar power’s growth could not come at a more critical time.
        We are poised both globally and nationally to accelerate the development of renewable energy, and in Colorado there is an especially great opportunity to become a leader in the U.S. in solar power capacity per capita.

    It is no mystery that the holidays can bring up depression, loss and overwhelming feelings. The effects are understandable; holidays bring about increased demands, pressure, financial stress and perhaps grief and longing, especially when we have lost a loved one.

        A new study by the University of Colorado shows that the longer people are awake during the time their biological clock is telling them to sleep the worse their sensitivity to insulin, which is a precursor to diabetes.

  • Dear Editor,

    I am deeply saddened by this senseless and shocking act of violence in Colorado Springs. This is a terrible moment not just here in Colorado, but throughout the nation. My heart goes out to the families of those who were injured and those who lost their lives.
