Colorado is slowly getting back to work. Whether we  agree with the decision or not, Gov. Jared Polis on April 27 eased the state’s stay-at-彩票联盟 order into a more relaxed safer-at-彩票联盟 order. That means some so-called “nonessential” businesses, like salons and retail stores, can get back to work and clients...
You can’t always get what you need. But if you try, sometimes you find you get what you want. This lyrical scramble is an appropriately backward lens through which to view our current situation. Just 29 percent of 1,000 Coloradans surveyed by Magellan Strategies in mid-April were ready to reopen...
It was nice to hear Gov. Jared Polis’ comforting remarks on Tuesday as he announced the gradual loosening of the Colorado’s shelter-in-place regulations. For the first time in many weeks, a return to normalcy seemed possible. Maybe at last I could pick up my long-stranded dry cleaning, meet my...
How about a riddle to break up your day?  When are you a business that is essential, but not an essential business? When you’re the United States Postal Service, of course! It’s not especially clever — the riddle or the idea of allowing the USPS to fail. The Postal Service has long walked...
If the $2.2 trillion in stimulus money doesn’t save the national economy by buoying the businesses and people who need it most, it will be the most egregious waste of taxpayer-funded emergency relief in U.S. history. The independent inspector general who leads the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee is critical to ensuring...
As COVID19 forces us all to “shelter in place” (one of the many irritating neologisms that the pandemic has spawned), our lives have changed dramatically. As a couple whose kids left the nest decades ago, we’re lucky to be comfortably sheltering in our Westside Victorian. No more commuting to work, going...
The issue: We are at war with the COVID-19 pandemic. What we think: Those sheltering in place are on active duty. Tell us what you think: Send us an email at editorial@. It’s spring: Have you planted your victory garden? We’re not talking veggies, of course — this is about pitching in to...
Aren’t you tired of reading about COVID-19? I am too, so let’s take a break and focus on regional news from 200 years ago. Who was the first person to climb Pikes Peak? That’s unknown and unknowable. Given the great peak’s visibility, accessibility and seductive appeal, the first climber likely...
When will all this be over? I don’t know, you don’t know, Governor Polis doesn’t know, Dr. Fauci doesn’t know and as for the Washington elite — well, never mind. It’s such a peculiar crisis. Many sit quietly at 彩票联盟 enduring de facto house arrest (absent an ankle monitor!). My...
The media-verse can be a dark place. Turn on cable news and you can watch the coronavirus ticker count off infections and related deaths across the globe. Our lives are now packed with stories about dwindling resources and tumbling stock markets. Everyone has reason to be nervous. COVID-19 hit the...
Monday, 6:50 a.m. It’s Geezer Monday at King Soopers, and I’m standing in line with a couple hundred fellow oldsters, waiting for the 7 a.m. store opening. We’re quiet, subdued and socially distant. We wish we were living in another time, that remote, friendly paradise that disappeared a few...
The issue: Federal leadership concerning COVID-19 has been abysmal. What we think: States and communities will have to develop their own strategies. Tell us what you think: Send us an email at editorial@. There is no better leadership barometer than turmoil. It’s easy to lead when things are going well. But test the...
