In case you missed it

Well, at least that’s what guests at the CannaCamp in Durango will get to experience when the new resort opens on July 1 — that and horseshoes and hiking and yoga, but we recommend not getting too blitzed before a game of horseshoes. CannaCamp management is calling the camp the nation’s first cannabis-friendly ranch resort.

The emigration of love, part III

By Rico Moore
Walking down the trail as dusk departs, the sky grows dark and the clear mountain air reveals the stars. Some of the stars no longer remain, having burned out millenia ago, yet their light continues to travel to my eyes and the eyes of those with whom I walk.

In case you missed it

The men were being held in adjacent cells. They each cut a hole in the walls behind their beds. They then climbed onto a six-story-high catwalk and headed toward the prison’s boundaries.

On the right track

New oil train regulations take steps toward safety but fall short in key areas

By Matt Cortina
New regulations and standards on rail tank cars carrying highly flammable crude oil were announced last month. Many of these new regulations are steps in the right direction with regards to improving the safety of the shipment of crude oil via rail, but there are still many who say the regulations do not go far enough.

The emigration of love (Part II)

By Rico Moore
Of my earliest memories — of being with my mother and father in an Aspen Grove near the border of Colorado and Wyoming. Down a gully from the cabin, built by my family in the ’70s, is a source. It is summer and the sky is blue. In the early morning, light spills dappled leaf-shadows through pleached layers of branches and trunks.

In case you missed it

On the other hand, if agents were able to get through security 95 percent of the time with illegal weapons, you’d think terrorists would be able to get through security at least a few times, too. With few reports of airport attacks in the last decade, this must mean they’re not doing the airport thing anymore, and by extension, terrorism is dead.

THE EMIGRATION OF LOVE

By Rico Moore
We slowly walk along the canyon trail. Below us, the creek roars — seems a swift-coursing vein, flowing to Ocean, where waves become waves, travel and pulse onto shores. I’ve been walking these wilds for some time, ever since having discovered them as a child. I’ve been collecting fragments — potsherds — stories of origin. I’ve stored them in a reliquary, shaped like a page that always returns to blankness. Each of the fragments appears as the syllable of a name. I’ve been arranging them for years, listening for a voice to speak — though I’ve never been able to see, as in the reflection of a stream, a face that resembles the feeling I feel as I look on the world. In what follows, I’ve re-arranged the remnants in the form of an essay, in hopes that they’ll sing together in chorus, linking things linked where links are unseen.

Still lost in limbo

Will new Native American burial law bring Jim Thorpe and others home?

By Elizabeth Miller
When Olympic athlete and Native American football legend Jim Thorpe died in 1953, there wasn’t money in his bank account to send his body back to his native state of Oklahoma, where he wanted to be buried. He didn’t have his Olympic medals for the decathlon and pentathlon events he won, either.

In case you missed it

From the day that Leon Wurl arrived in Erie with his trademark vision to build a roof top to roof top community as far as the eye could see, the town’s leaders have claimed they’ve been forced to say “yes” to every kind of expansion imaginable...

Climbing for Carleen

One family’s mission to change the way people think about hepatitis C

By Caitlin Rockett
In 2011, Carleen and James McGuffey had just moved to Colorado Springs from Texas when they found out Carleen was pregnant with the couple’s sixth child. They were ecstatic. But it wasn’t long after that they found out during a routine pregnancy checkup that Carleen had hepatitis C.
