  • Klee: With Broncos draft pick Shane Ray, mom knows best

    ENGLEWOOD - Mom deserves the best. A single mom raising a rebellious, sometimes angry boy into a man? If there's something better than the best, she deserves that. Shane Ray's mom is sweeter than Tupelo honey, the kind of lady who uses "heck" instead of the other word, "gosh" instead of the alternative. I don't know Sebrina Johnson's entire...

  • 'Facts' of flier strike a nerve with Colorado Springs mayoral candidates

    Pro-marijuana people have promulgated a factually flawed flier promoting mayoral candidate Mary Lou Makepeace over competitor John Suthers. Makepeace has disavowed connection with the leaflet. Suthers says he's certain she knew nothing about it. "I don't think Mary Lou has any responsibility for this flier at all," he said Wednesday. "I'm...

    GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) — A southwest Kansas single mother who lost custody of her son for using medical marijuana to ease her Crohn's disease has gone from being a massage therapist eking out a living in the back of a health food store to a national figure at the center of the pot debate.

  • Broncos seek bargain in Ray

    ENGLEWOOD - The Denver Broncos moved up five spots to select Missouri pass-rusher Shane Ray with the 23rd pick in the draft Thursday night.

  • Klee: Shane Ray to Broncos? Smart move after dumb decision

    ENGLEWOOD - This will go down as John Elway's smartest draft pick since his first one, Von Miller. Well, smart might not be the best way to advertise Shane Ray, not after he pulled one of the dumbest moves in NFL draft history. Elway, though? Smart. Gary Kubiak, smart. The personnel types who must have been doling out Mile High salutes inside...

    Losing a school can devastate a neighborhood or be the catalyst to re-energize an entire area.

Then consider the panic among Cragmoor residents as Bates Elementary is targeted for demolition...

  • LETTERS: No to pot for potholes; consequences for actions

    No to pot for potholes Mary Lou Makepeace wants to legalize retail marijuana in Colorado Springs so that the sales tax revenues will be used for road repairs. "Pot for Potholes." Brilliant, but why stop there? Our intersections are a mess, so why not legalize gambling as a source of funds to upgrade them? Heaven knows we all gamble each day we...
