Snowshoeing Anyone?

By Scott Crossen Berthoud Recorder When did you last spend time in the high-country? Maybe you headed up to engage in Alpine or cross-country skiing. But have you ever tried snowshoeing? “Snowshoeing doesn’t sound like it would be that hard.

Guest Editorial: It's No Time to Have a Cow

By Cory Gardner State Representative, District 63  There’s hogwash and poppycock. And then there’s the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Most people agree that we should be responsible stewards of the environment. But the EPA’s new idea to tax Bessie the Cow takes home the grand prize for reaching new heights of government absurdity. If you think you’ve seen it all from government, ruminate on this. Our friends in Washington, D.C. are actually considering a new gas tax. A ... Full Story
