3 Reasons Women Over 40 Shouldn’t Worry About Being Single

Studies show that women are waiting longer to get married and to give birth than they were in the second half of the 20th century. Those women who remain unmarried and childless by their mid-40s comprise a relatively small percentage, though, and some social observers say they are still stigmatized. “You know there is nothing wrong with you, and you don’t want to be typified or put in a box, yet there is an undeniable stigma attached to single status for a woman 40 and over,” says Lee Volpe, author of Black Sheep Tries Bleach: Humorous Stories to Ease...

Rise of the “Ghost Moose” Winter Ticks Take a Toll

  Several moose inundated with winter tick infestations have been reported around the Icebox Estates and Grand Lake areas. The moose are in various stages of fur loss and have been seen rubbing against trees, fences and homes, in an effort to rid themselves of the parasites. Tick infestations are part of a natural cycle. Dermacentor albipictus is an arthropod especially drawn to moose and are found throughout North America. They begin their life cycle in spring, as female ticks fall from the host moose and lay eggs. By late summer, the larvae climb vegetation to a moose’s mid-chest...

Grand County Bids Farewell to Kristi Martens

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Cozens Ranch Museum Director, Kristi Martens, who had announced she’ll soon be moving on to pursue other interests. When Grand County Historical Association (GCHA) hired Martens for the manager job at Cozens Ranch Museum in July 2011, she recalls being placed on a 90-day probationary period. She thought that was fair since she’d never before worked at a history house museum like Cozens. Martens was otherwise well-qualified to work for GCHA.  She had earned an MA in Museum Studies, and a PhD in Anthropology and specialized in museum collections. She had...

Let’s talk Trash: should recycling be included and does it pay off?

When one says the word trash, I think of the 5-10% of what we normally put in our trash cans as being actual trash that cannot be re-used, upcycled, or recycled. Where-as everything else has the potential to be re-used, upcycled, or recycled.  Most do not know it, but almost everything is becoming recyclable. Technology and the will to do it, is making trash obsolete. Disposable razors, deodorant containers, toothbrushes, mattresses, and inhalers are all recyclable now. Still, with technology figuring out how to do it, the biggest question posed always is: does it make sense economically to recycle?...

Letters to the Editor

Kudos to the Winter Park Times for printing: “More Americans want to legalize marijuana than ever before” and “Reality check: There’s nothing ‘healthy’ about pot” That duo is a perfect example as to why our founders gave us a Republic wherein our representatives are supposed to investigate and analyze issues that we the people don’t have time or resources to do. A popular vote (one rep one vote) in the House isn’t adequate; a non-population based vote from the Senate is required.   Unfortunately the Colorado Constitution allows “Ballot issues” – a neat way for politicians to “cop out”...
