  • Dear Donna: On a date? Time to sever link with phone

    Dear Donna, I met a man at a networking event a few weeks ago. We have seen each other four times and he always wears his earpiece for his iPhone, even when we're out for a nice dinner. He rarely responds to anyone when we're together, but he constantly is clicking on his phone while he continues to have a conversation with me. I find it...

  • Hidden in cracks and crevices, Miller moths once again invade Colorado homes

    For my middle-of-the-night visits to our home's smallest room, I'm usually alone. But not lately. Nocturnal moths have invaded our home. Sometimes hidden in a hung towel or closet crack, these inch-long moths are everywhere. Yesterday one burst upward at my son from beneath a closed toilet seat lid. Yikes! Well, at least he was lifting the...

  • El Paso County Fair kicks off with animals and fun

    The El Paso County Fair opened bright and early Saturday morning with a 4-H dog show and a breeding Boer goat show.

  • Keeping documents, artifacts safe when disaster hits

    Tim Blevins and Dennis Daily, who manage the special collections at the Penrose Library, carry small pocket-size planners at all times. When unfurled, they have access to everything they need to know in case of disaster - how to call FEMA and first responders, facilities layouts, location of building shutoffs and fire extinguishers, and how to...

  • Heart pounds, eyes close on tallest waterslide

    KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Halfway up the 264 stairs leading to the top of the world's tallest waterslide, it was clear this was the most breathtaking ride I'd ever encountered. And that was before I stepped foot in the raft. Two-thirds of the way up the circular stairs is a sign that says I've reached the height of the Statue of Liberty. A few...

  • Dining review: Her Story Café a good fit, even near books

    As much as I loved libraries when I was a kid, I would have never considered eating my lunch - or anything else - in one, and I am fairly confident the librarians would have frowned upon the idea. Libraries and attitudes change, and I have to admit that eating near books, especially in Library 21C, the Pikes Peak Library District's newest,...

  • El Paso County Fair opens Saturday with several 'characters'

    A man with a thousand voices is one of the stars at this summer's El Paso County Fair. OK, maybe not a thousand, but definitely at least a dozen. Joe Gandelman, a ventriloquist from San Diego, will perform daily with about 12 of his characters at the fair in Calhan. It opens Saturday and runs through July 26. "I always like performing,"...
