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.

Learning, the hard way

Real pain

By Matt Cortina
I started getting headaches a couple years ago but the hallucinations didn’t start until I was, relatively, just about dead. My head was literally killing me and I didn’t know it.

By Elizabeth Miller
And the perpetually difficult job was one in which I worked as a “research assistant” for a college professor, a nice and entirely inappropriate title, as the job I was just a couple weeks into at that point was rapidly losing any common ground it had once shared with what I believed I had been hired to do, in all the least promising ways.

Losing my place

By Joel Dyer
I think all of us are influenced by a sense of place. Grow up amidst skyscrapers and it’s pretty easy to see humans as life’s central architects. Spend enough time in the wide-open West and you just might feel a bit less important in the overall scheme of things.

Deadly Force, in Black and White

A ProPublica analysis of killings by police shows outsize risk for young black males.

One way of appreciating that stark disparity, ProPublica’s analysis shows, is to calculate how many more whites over those three years would have had to have been killed for them to have been at equal risk. The number is jarring – 185, more than one per week.

More than just along for the ride

Program to drive veterans to medical appointments seeing continued growth

By Elizabeth Miller
S ometimes, they trade war stories — from Vietnam, Guadalcanal, Korea, Japan. Sometimes, they just sit in the silence. Once, they sang. When Gary Jones opens his car door to drive veterans t

A gypsy in the snow

A wounded dog in Manitoba, Canada finds a new lease on life and a new home on the Front Range

By Caitlin Rockett
Dusk was falling on the tiny town of Churchill, Manitoba. It was the first day of November, and a 15-passenger van was trundling along the outskirts of town. The van was carrying a group of adventure

By Elizabeth Miller
For two years, while Alex Masarie worked in the Peace Corps in San Juanito, Panama, developing clean water sources for the town of 220 people, he fed one of the many dogs running around the town. Carm
