Learning, the hard way

Internal complaints from a Longmont charter school raise questions of oversight

By Matt Cortina

In the past year and a half, Flagstaff Academy Charter School in Longmont has undergone some major changes. Changes that have caused some teachers and administrators to quit, some parents to complain and remove their children from the school, and some former employees and board members to voice concerns about the direction of the school.

Fifty years and counting

The activism and music of Peter, Paul and Mary are still pushing us forward

By Joel Dyer

Like millions of Americans who lived through the 1960s, my home was filled with Walter Cronkite’s nightly narration of the events of the day. It seemed the struggle for civil rights was at the center of every newscast only to be replaced at times by the bloody coverage of the Vietnam War and the growing anti-war movement here in the states.

Who’s getting whose goat?

Oil and gas industry-sponsored TV ad is fraught with obfuscation and half-truths

By Caitlin Rockett

Just because we’re on the other side of election season doesn’t mean the advertisements stop. You’ve probably seen it by now: a “Front Range” “organic” farmer telling us that people should support fracking because it helps farmers like her pay for healthcare and their kids’ education.

By Gary Zeidner

The world has turned all red and green. Every kid is on his or her best behavior. Christmas tree lots are springing up like mushrooms after a hard rain and lights are twinkling on houses and businesses all over town. Love it or loathe it, the holidays are officially here.

By Ari LeVaux

With the salad days of summer behind us and dark, cold days approaching, fat is in season. The holidays, and the accompanying onslaught of rich feasts, present a timely opportunity to think about fat, and there is much to consider these days.

Lindsey Saunders takes road less traveled, kickstarts promising music career

By Brian Palmer

“My dad plays guitar, and taught me how to play,” she says. “Basically everyone on my dad’s side is a musician. One aunt is an opera and jazz singer, another is a music teacher, and then both my dad and his twin brother grew up playing music, so it runs in the family, I guess.

Why take a picture when you can paint one?

Artist Lisa Martin takes her paintings to new altitudes

By Amanda Moutinho

Reaching the summit of a 14,000 foot mountain, a 14er, fills people with a sense of accomplisment — the fresh air, the beautiful view, the aching muscles. To have a token for their hard work, most people take a snapshot, but artist Lisa Martin paints a picture instead.

Blackbelly Market proves there is life after reality television

By Josh Gross

Blackbelly’s interior is tile, wood and piping, giving the decor a comfortable and solid feel, somewhere between a brightly lit corner shop and a neigh borhood pub. The kitchen is exposed, separated from the dining area only by a counter seating area similar to a diner.
