CAMP HALE —Supporters of the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Economy Act, after watching the bill fail to advance past the U.S. Senate for several years, are asking President Joe Biden to take executive action to protect the tens of thousands of acres of federal land in Colorado the measure aims to shield. And they appear to […]
Nicolais: Could Republicans’ focus on inflation backfire at the polls in November?
Last week I paid over $90 for an oil change. As someone who used to change his own oil, the inflation-fueled sticker shock took a minute to comprehend. Was my mechanic price gouging? Was I the victim of a nefarious plot by Dark Brandon, the alter-ego of President Joe Biden? What led to near triple-digit […]
Littwin: Hickenlooper never gave up on Manchin. Could that really be why Manchin never gave up on the climate bill?
In the biggest congressional news of late and very possibly the most important since Joe Biden took office, Sen. Joe Manchin has changed his position — yes, one more time — on Biden’s much-reduced, yet-still-all-important climate-change package.

10 years after the Aurora theater shooting, how does Colorado remember?
How do you remember? Inside the theater, nothing is as it used to be. The splintered chairs are gone, replaced once and then again — now plush loungers with heated cushions, electric recliner controls and enormous cupholders.

Littwin: In November, Colorado’s races should come down to inflation and Biden vs. Roe and Jan. 6
The most obvious take from the Colorado primaries last week is that Republicans, at least in the statewide races, rejected the Big Lie and also rejected the Big Crazies who were running in support of that lie. I mean, can we all just give Ron Hanks and Tina Peters, in particular, a hearty farewell? My […]
Breast milk donations and goat milk: How Coloradans are battling through the baby formula shortage
Audra McNicholas went about her usual Monday routine on May 16, dropping her two daughters off at school before stopping at a store for her weekly grocery haul.

Littwin: The racist Buffalo massacre tells a story of America that we don’t want to hear
Let’s be honest, if just for a few moments, and call out the story of the racist massacre in the Buffalo grocery store for what it is. In many ways, in too many ways, that story is the story of America, circa 2022. It’s not only the growing “poison” of white supremacy that Joe Biden […]
