Deported to death

Who gave hospital corporations the power to ‘deport’ seriously injured, uninsured immigrants back to their home countries without going through the federal government? The answer is nobody.

By Cassie Moore

On the day American researchers visited them in the hills of Guatemala, Enrique’s family killed a chicken as a mark of celebration. They hoped that by sharing their story and welcoming the researchers, Enrique might finally get the medical help he needed.

Learning, the hard way

Internal complaints from a Longmont charter school raise questions of oversight

By Matt Cortina

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.

Surrendering to gravity

By Caitlin Rockett

I knew there was something strange about John from the first time I met him, but that’s what drew me to him. The black polish on his nails was chipping off and the ebony liner framing his glacial blue eyes was melting in the crushing humidity of East Tennessee in August.

By Elizabeth Miller

Sometimes, 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 to and from their medical appointments, a program run by Veterans Helping Veterans Now, he’s never quite sure who’s going to get into the passenger seat.

Deadly Force, in Black and White

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

By Ryan Gabrielson, Ryann Grochowski Jones and Eric Sagara/ProPublica (Hannah Birch and David Sleight/ProPublica)

Vote Guide - Ballot questions

By Boulder Weekly Staff

For one, the legislature already responded to the issue it claims to address (the loss of a child by an eightmonths-pregnant woman after she was hit by a drunk driver) by passing laws that apply penalties to the unlawful termination of a pregnancy through criminal or negligent acts.
