Fit and Fun: Ragnarok: The Unconventional

By Megan Reece Thomas Berthoud Recorder I am always one to point out non-conventional ways to get in some physical activity. And as a personal trainer, I often get people asking me for ideas on new ways to workout without feeling like they’re working out. I have found the newest way to get in shape yet.

If you surmised that it had something to do with dogs, you would be correct. Perhaps we have become known as a place for whelping Greater Swiss Mountain Dogs or it may be that we are close to Melissa Culver, DVM. Dr. Culver is revered in the Swissy community and the folks from Durango had lost most of their last litter ... Full Story

Letters: July 2, 2009

Time to Take Back Control I'm a retiree with chronic asthma living on a fixed income, like many of us, on Medicare. Regardless where we live, paying for prescriptions versus monthly essentials has become an agonizing decision. Some of my medications cost me $100-$250 per prescription per month (between stages three and four of the Medicare Part D program). There are programs available to reduce the costs, but if you have any kind of savings, (IRAs, etc.), you unfortunately don't qualify. ... Full Story
