Are you game?

‘Game Changer’ at BMoCA breaks some rules

By Elizabeth Miller
A basketball in the middle of the floor is a standing invitation — pick me up and give me a toss, it says. Some did. Then they turned toward the basket, took one look and realized that a single shot could shatter the hoop and backboard, formed by a circular fluorescent blue lightbulb and a vintage mirror.

The boy and the buffalo

After chaining himself to a Yellowstone gate to stop bison slaughter, Comfrey Jacobs faces three years without access to the buffalo herds

By Elizabeth Miller

Eyes open to the world

By Elizabeth Miller

Come to this maybe amazing show and hear some things that are only partly true

Todd Snider on his book and his new band

By Elizabeth Miller
Dear suburbs: Todd Snider and his new band, the Hard Working Americans, are coming after you and any other self-proclaimed “hard working American” who’s stood behind the safety of a picket fence to look down on other people.

No man overboard

River trip for veterans helps battle the odds

By Elizabeth Miller
The issues veterans face are — in some ways — as big and unmanageable as the Colorado River running through Cataract Canyon this spring. At up to 58,000 cubic feet per second, it was flipping so many rafts that passengers in a 12-foot paddleboat just had to expect to swim.

A stormy telling

‘The Tempest’ shows balance in delivering the best of the Bard

By Elizabeth Miller
That The Tempest weaves through murderous plots, attempted rape, enslavement, ill-fated lovers and split families — the territory of tragedies, to be sure, and escapes relatively unscathed as something closer to a comedy is a testament to the strength of Shakespeare as a writer. By some counts, this final work by the Bard is his best, a victory lap demonstrating his mastery in capturing the human character.

An ode to the canine life

Book on Colorado mountain dogs charms

By Elizabeth Miller
John Fayhee’s always had dogs, he says, in part because it’s behavior for a good citizen — rescue a mutt that might otherwise have a grim future at the end of the line in a shelter and give it a life that includes lots of time in the mountains and it’s giving that dog a winning ticket for the dog lottery. But there’s also a question of what having a dog around adds to your perspective.

Summit seekers

Four men ski three of Alaska’s biggest peaks

By Elizabeth Miller
Four ski mountaineers (well, three skiers and one snowboarder) seem to have set a record in Alaska this season. It’s tough to know what, exactly, and from the audible shrug and laugh when he talks about it, it’s clear that Anton Sponar doesn’t much care.

A play in the political theater

A crash course in GOP gubernatorial candidates and where they fall when it comes to fracking

By Elizabeth Miller
The Democratic party in Colorado seems to be banking on an optical illusion — that their incumbent governor will be faced with Republican opponents who are so radically far right that while Governor John Hickenlooper leans right, his positions will still look like they’re at the center.

Letting Peggy Jo take the wheel

A not-so-classic bank robber story in ‘Peggy Jo and the Desolate Nothing’

By Elizabeth Miller
Most of what follows is true — the true story of a woman too big for her own life. Peggy Jo Tallas was mired in the post-women’s-liberation problem that faces so many women: If you didn’t grow up to be a wife and a mother, what did you grow up to be? And is it just a whole lot of nothing?.
