  • Haxtun's El Paso Mexican Restaurant to open soon

    Candie Fix, Managing Editor|Mar 22, 2023

    For years the red building at the corner of Colorado Avenue and Highway 6 served as a place for customers to enjoy breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner. If walls could talk, they would have stories to tell of farmers and ranchers from the area who sat to drink their morning coffee and enjoy in each other's conversation. It was a place to gather for work meetings, fellowship over coffee and for pre-game meals to talk strategy for many Bulldog sports teams. The walls of what was once the Barlo Ca...

  • Taking a different approach to Dementia care ­- The DAWN Method (Dementia Alzheimer's Wellbeing Network)

    Mar 22, 2023

    There is hope in Dementia, which relies on the kind of care we provide. Providing strength-based, person-centered care for dementia means looking at the whole person and working with what they can do rather than focusing on what dementia takes away. People with dementia are losing their rational thought but will never lose their intuitive view (being in the moment, appreciating beauty, music, etc.). If their companions and caregivers are taught how to support their strengths, there is less...

  • Senator Lewis abandons agreement

    Marianne Goodland, Legislative reporter|Mar 22, 2023

    A bill to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption, which hasn't been available in the United States since 2007, fell by the wayside in the State Senate this week when the bill's Democratic sponsor reneged on an agreement with Democrats on the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. Senator Sonya Jaquez Lewis, of Longmont, agreed to an amendment on Senate Bill 38 when it was in committee, to rewrite the bill to change it from a ban on horse slaughter to put more...

  • Nutritious home cooking can be easy & inexpensive

    From NCHD|Mar 22, 2023

    Northeast Colorado has a significant population of people with high blood pressure, high cholesterol and obesity. These conditions reduce quality of life and life expectancy and increase health care costs. Our eating habits contribute to all of these things. Recently, we’ve all seen the rise in prices for all types of commodities, but unlike a new TV, you can’t really avoid buying food. During the latest Northeast Colorado Health Department Community Health Assessment, the single most-reported reason for not eating healthy food was cost. Cookin...

  • Under the Wire

    Gary Hodgson|Mar 22, 2023

    There is one irony of life that has frustrated and fascinated me as long as I can remember. We are all put on this earth with the same basic skills. We walk, talk, throw rocks, break things and fix things, to name but a few basics we all possess to some degree. This part I get. The part I find so interesting and confusing is this. Why are some able to perform one or more of these normal activities so much better than others? More important, when I have picked out one or two skills I really wante...

  • Fearless Faith

    Ken Frantz|Mar 22, 2023

    Finding the middle road can be tough. Getting up on it, and staying on it, can be tough. Sliding off due to a high crown in the road is not fun, and breaking down is never a highlight, especially when we are needing to be elsewhere (which is most of the time). Despite its challenges, the middle road, or middle ground, is an important locale to meet others. It is a place, a pathway, a route to somewhere or something that just might constitute a sacred encounter with the Divine if we are so...

    Linda Langelo|Mar 22, 2023

    Did you know who coined the term "Nativar"? Allan Armitage, author of Armitage's Garden Perennials, horticulturist and professor at Georgia University coined the term "nativar" "to show customers that the industry was offering what they wanted: garden plants developed from documented native sources, known in the scientific community as genotypes" from What's in a Nativar? by Carol Becker. A nativar is a cultivated variety of a native plant that has some ecological value in the environment. Nativars can be a native plant that is a genetic...
