The swap also presents an array of new soft goods and accessories, such as jackets, pants, helmets, gloves and goggles, as compiled …

  4. When home health hospice nurse Sage Pierson was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at age 40, she could have “walked into the woods and shot herself in the head,” she was in so much pain. She tried the traditionally prescribed Humera and IV therapy but was not pleased with the results and did not like the noted side affects.“I’m a nurse, so I decided to research alternative options, and medical marijuana kept popping up. I was very skeptical. I don’t smoke pot, never have, never will; I just want the inflammation to go away,” she recalled. Pierson, also the former owner …

But those speaking at the Thursday, Oct. 19, grand opening stressed that the new center is more than just a building.On the outside of the building — as with all fire stations in Colorado — there’s a sign noting that the department is a “safe haven,” a place where a troubled mother can leave a newborn with no legal consequences.Along with other officials, Eagle River Fire Protection District Board of Directors Chairman Clint …

  8. Wow. The Broncos have got to stop viewing gimmes as gimmes.Seriously, if I had said the Broncos were 3-2 before the season, then you would have told me those two losses were the Cowboys and the Raiders.The Bills and the Giants?Let’s start with the general points of concern:• Denver’s got to bring it week in, week out. They took the Giants lightly, as did we all. Of course, we weren’t playing the game, so it’s more on the team.• Trevor Siemian got hurt in a Terrell Davis-like situation. That probably produced some unwanted flashbacks. He’s also having some issues. He …

  10. For the past several years, the children of this valley have been under the round-the-clock care of a team of pediatric doctors who have decades of experience between them, one of whom earned a Fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Colorado. This team has enabled children who might otherwise have been hospitalized in Denver to remain closer to home, easing the burden on their families and speed recovery. It has also allowed families with children who are dependent on specialized care to live in Eagle County, rather than relocating to a major city.They have also saved lives, including my daughter’s.Under the …

EAGLE COUNTY — It’s not so much that using drones as a hunting aid has become a problem, but more that the practice has potential to become a big one.So officials with Colorado Parks and Wildlife want tech savvy hunters to know they need to leave their drones at home when the venture out into the back country.“We haven’t had any trouble yet, but it is coming. It is on everyone’s radar,” said Perry Will, Colorado Parks and Wildlife area wildlife manager. “My concern is I can see people trying to run elk off private property and on to public …

  18. PINEDALE, Wyoming — When Freddie Botur, 45, whose ranch spans 72,000 acres outside of Pinedale, Wyoming, first heard about a program that paid ranchers not to irrigate, he was skeptical. But Nick Walrath, a project coordinator for Trout Unlimited, assured him he’d receive about $200 for every acre-foot of water that he allowed to just run down the river. For Botur, that would mean more than $240,000 for fallowing roughly 1,700 acres of hayfields for the latter half of the summer of 2015, letting 1,202 acre-feet of water flow past his headgate on Cottonwood and Muddy creeks, tributaries of the …
  19. In regards to “Why does it matter that a player stand or kneel?” (Wednesday, Oct. 11) I just read Chris Freud’s article on this matter before work, and I felt inclined to reply as to why myself, and patriotic Americans, share a much different opinion on this matter. I have to be at work, and I am not a full-time journalist, but I would like to briefly share my thoughts before I must leave my computer for the day.Freud mentions “establishing justice” and “a more perfect union” but never elaborates on what social injustice the NFL players have been served. …
