What in Steamboat are you searching for?
Aside from pure athleticism, aerodynamic handlebars on the bike and finely tuned skate skis are the little details that give racers an edge in the Steamboat Pentathlon. For three competitors, it was not about efficiency or getting the best time. If it was, they would not have brought their young children and pulled and pushed them around in a carriage.
The Steamboat Pentathlon is back Saturday for its 23rd edition. Little has changed in that span for the race, which is hoping to attract a larger crowd but still remains a popular event for Steamboat locals.

Buying or adopting a “trained” dog in the hopes that all of the work is done for you is a nice idea. My experience sometimes tells a different story.

Of the 12 constellations of the zodiac, which mark the sun’s annual path through our sky, Cancer the Crab is the faintest and most challenging to locate. By the first week of March, the Crab has climbed high up in our eastern sky, tucked in between the more prominent constellations of Gemini the Twins to the west and Leo the Lion to the east.
There is an incredible amount of information we have on raising kids now. Maybe it’s too much, but there are a couple of things that research shows to be significant predictors of how well a child will do in life.
The end of the open enrollment period on March 31 marks a first in the rollout of the new health care law. After March, consumers no longer will be able to buy health insurance in 2014 that meets the new government standards of the Affordable Care Act.
When I think of the first Penguin Plunge, I smile. Not because I enjoy jumping into bone-chilling water, but because I was part of an enthusiastic team that came together to create a good-spirited event to help support the health care needs of the Yampa Valley.

I’ve always been intrigued by the assertion, “The more things change, the more things stay the same.” Attributed to the 19th century French author Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr, I had to write an essay proving or disproving this idea when I was about 17 years old for one of those standardized tests like the SAT that kids take prior to college. I’m sure what I wrote back then is not worth remembering, but now that I’m much older and theoretically a little wiser, I’d like to ponder this premise again and relate it to historic preservation.
