A recent article in Care2, an online semi-news source gives a good rundown on the situation. This is a prime example of unbridled, unrestrained capitalism ... Full Story

Boys Golf Team Fails to Qualify for State By Dan Karpiel Sports Writer The 3A Northern division Regional Golf Tournament began on a cool, windy Thursday morning at the Estes Park Golf Course. A small herd of Elk was kind enough to wait for the tournament to conclude before making their way onto the fifth fairway to munch on some foliage. The course, an 18 hole, par 71 measuring 6,321 yards from the men’s blue tees, is nestled in small valley on the southwest side of Estes Park where ... Full Story
