  • Series to provide education on dementia care and The DAWN Method®

    From CSU Extension|Oct 12, 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, families, and caregivers are taught how to support their strengths, there...

  • Under the Wire

    Gary Hodgson|Oct 12, 2023

    Well, she’s gone. I don’t know what I ever made me fall for her in the first place. Can’t remember what I saw in her. I must have been crazy. Ten years of battle, disagreements and constant irritation. The noise of tires taking her down the gravel driveway was music to my ears. I never really liked her, anyway. Yep. Old cow number 68 is gone. What’s that? You thought I was talking about something else? Shame on you. Number 68 was the most cantankerous, all around mean four-legged creature ever t...

  • Fearless Faith

    Ken Frantz|Oct 12, 2023

    Nestled among the “whences” and ‘comeths’ of Psalm 121 (KJV) lies a calmness and certainty that draws us when times are difficult and trying. The archaic lingual forms embedded in scripture bring a sense of comfort and permanence, familiarity that transcends even the narrowest constructions of faith, and shaping our relation to the Divine. It is beloved scripture, an attempt to quantify the unquantifiable. What better images to employ than those of mountains rising from the pedestrian plains...

  • Capital Review

    Mark Hillman|Oct 12, 2023

The legislature can cut taxes anytime; it doesn’t need voter approval. But with Coloradans facing the largest property tax increase of our lifetime due to soaring home prices, the legislature chose to put a massive expansion of government on the ballot disguised as a property tax cut. Remember this: even if Proposition HH passes, property taxes will still increase. If property values double in the next 10 yea...
